present for brand new mom?

A very good friend finally had her baby tonight - after two days of labor. Yikes!

I want to send a gift to her - any suggestions? She's up in the Boston area, or I'd be bringing over food.

  • How about a gift card to go out to dinner when they are ready to get out of the house or pick something up and bring home, or to Shutterfly to print out all the tons of pictures they'll be taking.

    Love these suggestions.

    Or, a gift certificate to a pro photographer.

  • Sending a food gift is a GREAT idea for a new mom. I always send packages of Omaha Steaks (they have many other things besides steaks as well). DH and I regularly order from them for ourselves too. The prices are unbelievably reasonable, the food is amazing, and the shipping is fast (and often free if you buy enough stuff).

  • As pp suggested, a gift card for take-out or delivery would be nice.  You could also send her a care package filled with foods you can eat with one hand.  I ate a lot of granola bars in those first few weeks at home!

  • A shopping cart cover.  I saw one the other day and I thought it was such an awesome thing.

    Ditto. I ate a lot of trail mix and string cheese. Friends brought over casseroles and chili, which was great since we had no time to shop or cook.

    Also, if they didn't know the sex, some gender-specific clothes now that the baby is here would be good. Or diapers! Pampers Swaddlers are great, especially in the beginning.
