A good day…

July 2012 002I’ve said since I learned that a local friend was due on July 17th that the 18th is a good day to be born.  See, my teen years BFF was born today… a few years ago.  (Hem.)  No, you don’t get a photo, because all of my photos for the last few years include her precious boy, and I don’t put kiddo photos on my blog.

Instead, you get a pretty photo of one of my birthday flowers. 

Now… what’s your go-to baby shower (or just welcome baby) gift?

    Now that I have had a baby…my goto baby shower gift are useful things. I like to knit one thing like booties or a hat, and then pack of size 1 diapers, wipes, my favorite baby wash, lansinol, and things like that. Congrats to your friend!

    Handmade blanket if it’s a close friend. Otherwise, tiny practical items (size dependent on size of baby). Natalie’s suggestion is really good, because it’s astonishing how fast those things go. Also, I like to include a little something just for the mom, be it some chocolate, a book, fancy tea or whatever. It doesn’t need to cost much, just something that’s just for her.

  4. If I have time to knit a blankie and a stuffie If its spur of the moment, receiving blankets

    What a pretty photo! I usually knits toys but since I never hear anything once I’ve given them it’s hard to know if they were liked. Instead I’ll tell you the gift I know was well loved many years after it was given and that was a nightlight that lit up in the shape of Noah’s Ark. The children enjoyed that for many years and I heard years after how much the kids loved it.

    Machine washable soft wool for baby and/or mama, depending on the time I have.

    Best wishes to your friend for a safe delivery, and to the new little one on the way.

    Well, I’m not a homemade talented person like you, so my gift is invariably a onesie. Or several of them. Every once in a while, for a really special friend, I send an outfit…. the kind most mothers don’t have time to wash and iron anymore. 🙂

  13. I usually do diapers and a Wal-Mart gift card. Or if they’re really special, a hand-knit something. 🙂
