  • Diapers and wipes. I seriously didn't have to buy diapers for two months just because of all the diapers I received as gifts.

  • Diapers for sure but personalized, handmade items. I loved the nursing cover my friend made for me and the custom burp cloths with matching blanket. I love unique, fun things that I probably wouldn't buy myself because I am a pretty practical person.

  • I would say diapers, wipes, formula, and bottles/pacifiers. You can never have enough diapers, and try to get a couple of sizes, because they grow so fast, and formula so expensive now days if you choose to use it. Also it seems like I was miss placing my son's bottles and pacifiers a lot, I guess cause the lack of sleep and forgetfullness I experienced for the first couple of months (lol).

  • Onsies, receiving blankets, pacifiers, bottles. I love finding little tiny band shirts (mom or dad's fav band) for baby's too.

  • keepsake items, like a footprint kit with a place for a pictures, organic washcloths, thick hooded towels,(not the skimpy ones), bath toys, a little envelope with clipped coupons for diapers, wipes, or other baby products with a giftcard.

    I don't like the idea of buying someone diapers, wipes, formula, pacifiers, or bath products unless you know what they want to use. Some babies or parents have specific brands that they want to buy, or avoid. Clothes are also hit or miss, so I try to avoid buying clothes for the baby.

    If you know that the mom is going to breastfeed, then a nursing cover with cute, matching burp cloths, breast pads, and a cute aluminum water bottle would be nice.

    I like "themed" baskets.
