I've never heard of gifts from the baby. I understand giving gifts to celebrate being a big sister (and I intend to do this), but won't your kids think it's odd to get a gift "from" someone who obviously can't really give a gift? Honest question, and asked respectfully, so please don't flame!
interesting thought. I dont *think* so but dd just turned 4 last week. I dont think she's going to look a gift horse in the mouth so to speak....
if she does, we'll just tell her we bought the gift on the baby's behalf.
yikes, now I'm worried about it!
I also bought a coming home outfit, but will ask the person who’s watching her if they can run her over to Carters or Gymbo and have her pick out something instead. I’m not really *that* picky about a coming home outfit and I think it will be really special for dd. She’s already picked out the bow that will go on the baby’s gift….
She’s THRILLED to be becoming a big sister – I’m hoping these little gestures will make it stay that way.
I’m an only child so I know nothing about this stuff and am a little nervous about it.
just one more thing to keep me awake at 4am....

Its just fun and a nice gesture from the baby... its like "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus." It is a symbol of the spirit that one wishes to foster between siblings, and represents that the sibling is a 'gift' to the older child.
I don't think children see things so literally, and will really, seriously think "well that baby couldn't get this gift"...
and I wouldn't want to impose my adult thinking about whether the baby can give a gift yet or not on a child.
