Big brother gift from baby

Any ideas? I would like to buy something that the baby can give to my ds who is 3. I was initially thinking of a big brother T-shirt, just wondering if anybody had any fun ideas? X

Ds2 bought ds1 a Lego diplomats rubbish truck, because that is what ds'1 wanted most at the time! He still tells people it's what he got from his little brother.

That should read Lego duplo...

Ds got a scooter from new baby dd. He loved how his new little sister 'knew' what he wanted!

When my daughter was born her older siblings gave her a build a bear bunny they created with a sound in they recorded saying hello/ welcome /we love you. I let them do the choosing and they loved it (2 and 3 at the time). Maybe you could do that and then go back and get him a matching big brother one? So they can exchange gifts and have a special same toy? You could record a special big brother message into his.

DS got a Ninja Turtle costume "from" DD. He changed into it in hospital. It was an all consuming gift that he loved.

I've always liked those personalised books that some websites do that have both siblings name as characters in them, on an adventure together. I had one when I was little and loved it.

Our baby ds2 just gave ds1 a big bag of buttons. I'm a bit shock at some of the more expensive gifts! Ds1 was only 2.4 though so perhaps it is different with an older big brother.

A big digger truck.

Dc2 due on the 23rd here so it's all going to get mixed up with Christmas (having our Christmas Day early too just in case I'm still in hospital after cs). The baby is getting DS (2.5) a big dinosaur he wouldn't put down (much tantrumming) the other day in JoJo. So I would say anything they are particularly 'into'. Congratulations! I'm starting to feel very nervous about having two to manage.

A sibling!

I am a strong believer that they shouldn't need gifts in order to accept a new baby but instead it be reinforced how lucky they are to have a brother/sister.

My 3dc have never had any behavioural jealousy issues.
