  • I am and I will. I'd hate to waste the money on something she doesn't need since right now $25 is a lot of money to me

  • I would get a cute outift for the baby. There are so many adorable outfits out there to choose from and I'm sure you can find something for that price.

  • I would either look under her registry if she has one. Or make a basket, like buy a tub and fill it with bath things. Or a medicine basket. Of course, save the gift receipt, incase she already has a lot of what you get her. I loved the clothing I got for later on, as in 9-12 month sized things. They grow out of the NB and 0-3 things so quickly. Or here, is something I just thought of, get a pack or those plastic plates, some plastic bowels, a sippy cup, and a thing of silverware. Those were things I never got.

  • I prefer to give a gift if I can. I do give gift cards at times too. And like SuperrMommyyy says, it's more fun to buy the gift!
