I have a friend who is about to have her third boy. She has everything for boys from her last two babies so I am not sure I want to get anything for the baby but may be something for her instead.

Are you a multiple mum? What do you think?

I agree, I have 3 boys and I always really liked getting nice new clothes for the new baby.

Was a bit disappointed cos people thought I had everything so bought me baby towels of swimming trunks hmm

Mind you, I was also really touched when a friend brought me 5 bags of seabrooks crinkle cut prawn cocktail crisps cos she knew they were my favorite grin. She bought some baby clothes too!!

sorry should have read baby towels or swimming trunks. That would be really weird!!!

I agree. When I had my second boy, I felt I could not justify going to buy him any new little lovely baby outfits, blankets, towels, as we already had so much after his brother. I loved getting new little outfits, fresh soft blankets and towels for him as baby gift. Any baby is a new little person, and it does not matter if boy or girl, new outfits just for them, is in my opinion really important as gifts.

Buying something only for mum, would signal her baby is not so important. It IS!

How about a nice outfit for the baby and a voucher for a local beauty salon for a facial (or something like that) for the mother (plus a home-made "I will baby-sit during your facial" voucher, so she can get out and use it)

Lovely! Thanks for your input. Will get them both something.

I think you should make her a sign that says


because you know she's going to get comments
