  • Best gift while pregnant: Doing my grocery shopping for me. Best gift after baby: Cleaning and cooking for the first week so I could recover from the birth and only deal with the baby's needs.

  • Best gift I got was three days after we came home from the hospital. My aunt, who babysat me when I was little, showed up with: 1) a handmade flanel quilt for my daughter 2) a hot, homecooked, easy-to-microwave meal (crockpot roast beef with veggies, plus mashed potatoes and apple pie) and 3) an offer to cuddle the baby while my SO and I got showers. I cried.

  • 1. When I was 8 months pregnant, my husband got me a gift card for a mani/pedi for my birthday. It was AMAZING.
    2.My Mom and MIL deep cleaned out entire house while I was still in the hospital.
    3. We got like 15 homemade blankets from relatives. They are such a treasure. :)

  • my favorite gift to GIVE (with a group of others because it's expensive) is a gift certificate for a family photo somewhere or a newborn photo shoot.
