Hi, wanted a bit of advice... I want to buy a gift for a friend who's just had her third child, so want to get something nice - around £100. Anyone get any good gifts that they could point me in the right direction?! Would quite like to get HER something, rather than just more baby stuff! Thanks x

voucher for an afternoon at a Spa?

I was going to say same as above, a spa voucher. Just make sure it's valid for at least 6 months, as she may not feel up to going for a few months yet. She'll have it as something to look forward to and get a wee break from DC.
If she's not a spa type of girl, then how about a voucher for her favourite clothing shop so she can treat herself to some new clothes to suit her probably new shape? She'll be glad to get rid of the maternity clothes and have something new to wear.

Agree with the spa voucher idea.

Failing that, take a look at the 'Babes with Babies' website (Google them). They have lots of lovely things on there and they come beautifully wrapped.

Or some (very) nice toiletries, Jo Malone bath oil and body lotion, so she can home-spa?

....meant to say with a half bottle of champers so she can have a lazy bath.

Something from Hush

That said, they are in between seasons with end of sale stuff and not sure when their Autumn/Winter range is out...pity, because a Cardigown or PJ set and Henley or something woud be just the ticket for 4-6 months of dossing about the house and lazing round (well that's what I did when I had babies) grin

My sister bought me a Spa Day for Christmas, only it runs out next month and ds2 is still, despite being 9 months, bf up to 8 times a day and I've had to give it away angry. So you should probably check that she'll be able to get away before it expires.

How about some jewlery, or a lovely scarf?

Or find out where she has her hair done and get a voucher for that. Then she can either have a revamp or her just a cut if she doesn't have much time.
