My friend is about to start mat leave, dc #2. I'm just finishing my mat leave bu I want to give her a little present of useful things prior to the birth.

It's got to be fairly cheap as I'm skint!

I thought...

Lavender oil, for baths after
Clary sage in a carrier oil for her DH to manage during birth if she wants it
Some cake
A Costa coffee voucher
A mug with a lid
Some sticker books etc to keep her son busy if she's busy with baby
A tiny bottle of red wine. She loved a tipple and I never wanted to open a whole bottle as it would go to waste but just fancied a small glass now and then open the whole bloody bottle now though

Is there anything else I could include? Just small things, with xmas coming up we're a bit skint. She'll be going to hospital to have the baby and obviously I'll get him something later.
