And there are over 200 people invited to her baby shower (yes, you read that right). I like to give personal gifts that will be useful and will stand out as something that I put thought into. HOW do I do that when there are 200 people giving her something off of this little dinky registry list, half of which has already been purchased? :
That makes me chuckle!

Some things I really enjoyed that people just thought of themselves were a pair of big ol' (but cute) pajama pants that my SIL called my "victory pants" for after the baby is born and a bottle of lavender massage oil.

Does the mama plan to breastfeed? I would so have loved the breastfeeding basket with some bfing supplies in it.

A gift certificate for a pedicure or massage would also have been greatly appreciated!
