Someone I work with is due any day now, and we are going to do a mini shower for her. I am getting my fave board book for the baby (I love you through and through), and want to the new mama something small to.

Ideas? My ds is 3, so I'm forgetting what I would have wanted at that time, but thought some of you would have some ideas. Something mundane though, and inexpensive - I don't know this woman very well, and don't want to go too hippy dippy on her.

TIA!!

Do you know if she is planning to breastfeed?  If so, maybe some milk tea or nipple butter?  The book looks so sweet...I think I will have to get a copy!

You should get a copy!! It's SO adorable, and my 3yo still asks to read it!!

And, I've thought about breast feeding stuff, but I don't know her plans, and I'm so much more crunchy than most people that I try to avoid giving too much advice unless people ask for it.

Does she have other children?  I like to get a little something especially for a sibling! but yeah, the amber teething necklace idea.
