I want to get our boys a "big brother" gift for when ds is born but I have no idea what. Any ideas or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. The ages are 15, 8, and 7.

What about big brother books? I got this book for my daughter, she will be 8 when her little sister is born.

Our 8 year old loves to read so we've thought about a book for him

I am so lost on these new traditions...push presents...older sibling gifts...gramma gifts...shoot my daughter is just happy finally getting a sibling and in the gender she asked for lol

On a side note, my baby is due the day before my anniversary...I'm getting sushi as a push present/anniversary present...

I had not thought about that. But now that you mention it i like your idea. My daughter is 8 and son is 6. And i would love for them to feel special. I think its a great idea since it teaches them them that they are role models.

I would buy them shirts that say im a big bro/sister. Maybe get one professionally made that has the names listed in order of birth. Or maybe give them a day at a place they like to go. Or have you and and the husband make videos for each child reminding them how special they are. So they dont feel left out.

I am only getting my children big brother and big sister gifts because they are both on the autism spectrum. My son is especially having a very difficult time in coping with the fact that a new baby brother is coming. His sense of sound is ultra sensitive and when it come to crying or screaming it sets him off. So I keep talking to him about his big brother surprise for when Bradley gets here and it's helping him to look forward to his arrival. I want this to be a positive experience for him . My daughter is getting one just so she isn't left out. I'm just getting them things that they have been asking for for weeks now. A Lego red hulk for my son and an Anna Disney infinity toy. Super easy, just a tiny token to let them know they are still special

We never did that. The bigger one (s) always picked out a gift (usually a stuffed animal) for the new baby but that's about it. Maybe some books or an outfit?

I've had four kids and siblings never got a present. Well, my mom took my oldest for a sleepover at her house when my second was born and they went shopping for shoes, does that count lol. Other than a big sister book when my son was born that's it. Is it something you really feel necessary to give them?

Well, since this baby is due at the same time as their birthdays, I probably won't do that:) baby is due dec. 1, and my boys will be 5 on nov. 5, and 7 on nov. 30. I'm going to be so overwhelmed between Halloween, birthdays, thanksgiving and prepping for Christmas that I'm not going to add any extras to my plate. It's a nice idea though, especially if the due date was a ways out from other gift giving holidays.
