I need gift ideas!

For me. Too many people are asking me what gifts I want for the baby. I am lost. I usually just say something about how we already have everything, which is met with nagging about how we couldn't possibly have EVERYTHING, so I usually just say clothes or books are always nice.

Now some of my mom's friends want a list of things I need (I don't acutally know these people even) and asked that I include some more expensive items. Again, it's not seeming like no is an option, and clothing was not excepted. I am told by my mother I must come up with something or risk being rude.

HELP? What are some luxury baby items I would find useful? I'm sort of a simple girl and am struggling to come up with anything on my own..

I just kept telling people clothes, diapers, wipes or gift cards that I could use towards diapers and wipes. If they can't be content with any of that then don't get me anything. I don't need a house full of crap I'll probably never use.

Whatever you use the most is nice to have extra of. Diapers, wipes, bath stuff. Whatever big gear you don't already have or would like to have.

An extra car seat or stroller so you don't have to switch them from one car to another? A baby sling or wrap?

 Are you going to bottle/breastfeed. I found out a bottle warmer was a wonderful, cheap necessity when I had to switch to bottle feeding.
