Best baby shower gift?

I'm looking for unique and chic (but affordable) gift ideas for my BFF. She seems to have everything so I want to give her something special that she'll really appreciate.

  • If she hasn't already bought diapers, buy her one of these. Cloth diapering is gaining popularity and that pack will give her enough supplier to use for at least a day.

    Or how about a merino sleep sack? They're sooooo much better for baby than fleece and totally adorable! I was given one for DS over a year ago and he's still wearing it.

  • A certificate for a full body massage for after the birth of the baby. A special outfit for the baby as well.

  • Gift card to a spa?? IMO it's okay to get the mom something too. Pregnancy can be hard on a woman's body!

  • I always love putting together a great big diaper bag loaded with goodies. Be creative. A first year photo album, a cute little piggy bank, a savings bond, a music box. Just some ideas, have fun with it whatever you decide

  • The thing I love & use the most now that I kinda dismissed @ the time is a large reusable swim diaper. We're @ the pool or the beach alot & since its a large I've been able to keep using it. When she was smaller I'd put a reg diaper inside & now that she's larger I don't. Think of something you use alot that you can't live w/out.

  • One of my favorite gifts was a giftcard to one of my favorite restaurants that does takeout. It was so nice to have something simple for supper that my husband could pick up on his way home from work those first couple of weeks!
