What should I put in a present for pregnant friend?

She's 33 weeks pregnant and has two other kids, 6 and 3. I was going to make her a little box of things for herself. Does anyone have any ideas of things that would be good to put in? I'm thinking a candle, slippers etc but what would be useful? I've never been pregnant so I'm sure I'm not thinking of stuff that would be appreciated!

I got a little bunch of gifts for myself that included slippers, a really nice lip balm (I don't know about your friend by pregnancy made my lips very dry) a lovely body moisturiser, a wine cup that was anti-spill for after the baby comes of course! A pregnancy massage voucher, a little shoulder throw that I can use to put over all my boring nursing tops for if I'm chilly at night when up breastfeeding, a metal drink bottle with a matching notebook/journal.

That sounds like I bought it for myself. I mean at my baby shower it was a hamper I received.

DEFINITELY give her a Ewan the sheep. My PIL gave us one for our DD and it's been a god send from helping her sleep in hospital with all noises around to helping her drift off now at 10 months old.

It sounds like it's not for her but trust me it was my favourite after things for baby and me

I get all my expecting friends a 3m iPhone cable (or whatever charger they need) for when they’re stuck on the sofa with a baby glued to them. Everyone always looks a bit bemused then comes back six weeks later with “that’s the most useful gift anyone gave me!”

I bought another friend an Audible gift voucher as she is a voracious reader.
