So your sister, co-worker, or friend just had a baby and she is insisting that she doesn’t need anything – but you don’t want to arrive at the hospital empty-handed. Chances are, flowers and a card are enough for your new mommy friend. But, if you want to try something creative and possibly DIY, here are a few ideas.
Found this on Pinterest a few days ago. This newborn onesie is perfect for a baby girl or baby boy. The funny saying on the front will make for some cute photos!
Try preparing frozen meals like lasagna, to give to the new parents. The first couple weeks after the baby is born is going to be stressful on your friends. Now, with your tasty lasagna in hand, they will have one less thing to worry about – what’s for dinner.
Was there anything that your friend had to give up while she was pregnant? For instance, did she go cold turkey on chocolate because it made her nauseous? Or maybe your friend is a big coffee drinker and she was bummed out when she realized no more caffeine? Either way, create a gift bag designed around what the new mom had to give up during pregnancy and now she doesn’t have to. It is sort of a “Congratulations-on-making-it-through-pregnancy” gift.
