I'd like to get a gift for my midwife. Does anyone have any ideas? I'm not super crafty so I'd prefer to buy. I was thinking something practical that she'd use a lot, but I"m open to suggestions!

I need to figure out something for mine, too!  I was just thinking about it a little bit ago...  I'm actually considering contacting her daughter and asking for ideas.  


Last time, we did a photo shoot (a surprise at one of our appointments) with her and the three boys, then framed a picture from it and gave it to her.  I know she really liked that.  I'm not sure if we'll do something like that again or what.  I do think any midwife would like something personal like that, though!


I've also thought of restaurant gift certificates or something...  Though I know my MW is vegetarian and so I'm not 100% sure what the best options for that are.  (Not vegan, though, which makes it easier!)


This was our third birth with her (and our last!) and she is a wonderful friend, so I really want to do something special!
