Our lovely dil is 7 months pregnant. We are giving them a big cash present to help but want to get her a few nice gifts. Can't do smellies. Ideas anyone?

Why are you posting in AIBU?

TimeToMuskUp Mon 21-Dec-15 22:58:41

Oh one of those long body pillows if she's not got one. Maybe a voucher for a massage or treatment she can choose at a lovely spa? A nice toiletry bag to take into hospital when baby is due?

Hihohoho1 Mon 21-Dec-15 23:01:40

Because I have for years ipad

But good to feel back in school with the prefects chik.

Time brilliant thank you.

A nice online supermarket shop of treats?

Don't be an arse, OP. You're posting in the wrong section.

I always wished someone had bought me a coffee cup holder that clips onto the pram handle instead of the usual old shite you get when you have a baby.

Waterstones have a beautifully illustrated edition of the Snow Queen (that I'm really hoping my dh will buy me for Christmas). It would make an excellent stocking filler for basically anyone.

Dammit, the typo really undermined my tone!

Heated hand warmer. To warm cold hands from pushing pram handles?

Or decent gloves, that grip the pram?

Hihohoho1 Mon 21-Dec-15 23:16:49


Anyway as a mumsnetter since 2008 find some posts hilarious.wink

I love my dil so that's strange for aibu and my mil was a sweetie too.grin

Love the spa idea and the pram gloves.

Fluffyears Mon 21-Dec-15 23:19:34

Pram gloves (leather would work well) and/or the long body pillow to help her sleep.

YABU for bring a great MIL and loving your DIL! wink

How about a foot massage and pedicure?

Palomb Mon 21-Dec-15 23:20:28

I hate the taste of dil.


abbieanders Mon 21-Dec-15 23:22:35

Huge, comfy, clean, fresh pyjamas or lounge clothes. I would have loved something nice of that kind when I got out from hospital and was exhausted and uncomfortable and feeling worn and grubby.

who is Dil

PiperChapstick Mon 21-Dec-15 23:27:41

Are you close to her OP? I say get her some pampering stuff (smellies and slippers) and make a 'babysitting voucher' in with it if that's not too overbearing? I'm sure half on MN will say IABU and that they'd go NC if their MIL did that mind wink

fleecy bedjacket for feeding while sitting up in bed
a hamper of snacks

chillycurtains Mon 21-Dec-15 23:35:59

I would possibly go with none baby related stuff. Adult colouring books, a couple of fav magazines, dvd she'd like, books, scarf, hat, nice cardigan (that sounds really old when I type it grin), maybe a long drappy scarf for covering up when/if breastfeeding? Cinema tokens for a trip before the baby arrives.

chillycurtains Mon 21-Dec-15 23:36:17

* non (not none)

TimeToMuskUp Mon 21-Dec-15 23:41:04

Oooh I've just been thinking about this again, what about a box set? Has she seen Game of Thrones? I'd not seen it til I had surgery in November and was off my feet for a few days, 5 series later and I'm a bit obsessed with Jon Snow and his mane of lustrous hair; I have filthy dreams about combing it. I'd have loved a great box set to get through when feeding the DCs at crazy o'clock each evening.

YABVVVVU. My MIL is awful, even DH can't bear her, and your DIL gets you? That's utterly unreasonable.
