So my best friend's family is adopting a baby boy who is due in January! I'm thinking of making an awesome gift basket type thing with all sorts of stuff in it but I'm not really sure what might be cool.. If anybody has any ideas please tell me!
Just incase it makes a difference his nursery will be western themed!
Diapers, diapers, diapers, wipes, burp clothes, and...did i mention diapers? Also include something for just the couple, like a babysitting session so they can have a breather or a gift card to their fave restaurant or cook or provide them dinner one night or help with laundry.
I think they are using clothe diapers but I will ask... They are going to make homemade wipes.. They don't have ANY burp clothes yet so I'll get some of those! My mom is going to make a diaper bag because she is just crafty like that so I think I will get some onesies, pants, burp clothes, bips, a jacket, socks, and hats to put in the diaper bag! I might see if I can make a small blanket using the extra diaper bag fabric too... I'm also making some canvas art for the baby's room but I already have the supplies for that I just need the time! For everything else I need $ but my birthday is next week so I'm gonna use my money on baby stuff! They invited me to be at the hospital when he is born but he is gonna be born 4hrs away and I would have no where to stay so I'm gonna be at their house when they get home!
I find that I am always needing binkies- one day I'm going to move something and find the thirty missing binkies. Another thing that I didn't have that I needed was a scrub brush for the inside of the bottles.
One of my friends made me meals and froze them, they were a life saver.
One thing that I was SO happy to get, was burp cloths. (As was mentioned) And pacifiers for sure! Like moonshine said, someday ill move something and find 353672736 missing binkies hahahah. SO true!
Another thing that was probably the best gift someone got for my son, my friend got him a fleece blanket, and had his name and birthday sewn onto it! It was the most touching thing anyone got him because it was personalized!
It'll be cold in Jan, so anything warm really. Like booties or socks, newborn mittens, caps. All are fairly cheap too.
