I have a baby shower. I want to bring a gift for the mama to be (dw I got plenty of stuff for the baby). If it was you what would be a gift you could of really appreciate it personally.

My best friend got me a maternity shirt and a gift card to a store so I could buy nursing bras and tops. It was very thoughtful and helpful

Bath stuff - bubble beads and body wash with loofahs and such. With some chocolate. I took lots of baths after for healing and relaxation.

My sister in law actually got my son a lamb with a blanket as its body. With my sons name embroidered in it for him. It was the best and most endearing gift I received

One day or night of watching baby when s/he gets here! Or set day(s) to bring over cooked meals for her when baby comes.

If you have common friends maybe organize something together where you have set days to help out when baby comes. You should be flexible of course if mom wants personal family time.

Didn't have a baby shower but my sister's mother in law gave me a prenatal massage and it was the most awesome gift. I really appreciated that one ð a friend of mine got pregnant, and I passed the kindness along and got her one. She was crazy excited about it. They're heaven in the last couple of weeks and is incredible for the mama to be! â¤ï¸ð

I got my friend a huge bottle of wine (for after the baby was born), and a gift certificate for a massage. I also got her a bunch of small things from her registry, and a gift card to target. Her face (and everyone else's) was priceless when she pulled out the wine. Hahaha. She was really excited about it though.

The next baby shower I go to, I'm going to get some nair, and some slip on shoes. Lol. Shaving and tying my shoes were the worst! ð

My friends family organized for the first month family and friends to come help with house chores (she was a SAHM) and general stuff like that so she would have someone to pal around with or take a nap, whichever she needed more of. It really helped her adjust.
