Baby shower gifts for not first time parents

I'm off to a baby shower this weekend for a pregnant couple who already have 1 little one - so already have quite a lot of stuff. Any ideas of what I could get - both for baby and mum?

Honestly it's all getting too much with presents for being pregnant and presents for baby being born.

Take some cotton wool balls/bibs/sippy cup/teether toy/baby wipes. Anything like that. A face mask and candle maybe for Mum? All available out of Bodycare cheap as chips grin

its not a pregnant couple, it's a pregnant woman and partner, or a couple expecting a baby.

Baby showers are american import shite and I wouldn't go within 10 miles of one.

Other than that, try a mobile

I've never really got the thing with baby showersgrin are you American?

I'd just say congratulations with a little card and some flowers, maybe a baby grow for when the baby is born- IF they were close friends and/or family. thanks

Very graspy to have a shower for a second. I’d go with a newborn babygro or similar for the baby and a box of chocolates for her.

Unlike the majority on here I actually love a baby shower. But throwing one for a second child is too much even for me. A token gift like a new Sophie La Giraffe that hasn’t been chewed up by DC1 will be fine. Don’t get mum any pamper bits that take time, a nice shower gel would be good though.
