2nd Baby Gift

A friend just emailed me and asked me if I had a great idea for a 2nd baby gift. This is the 2nd boy, so they are good on clothes and toys. Normally I would suggest something monogrammed for the 2nd child since they will get so many hand me downs, but this Mom owns a monogramming shop in the South. Hmmm. I am stumped. Any ideas? What do you give the 2nd baby? What's your favorite big brother/big sister gift too?

Thanks for your help!

Diapers. New crib sheets. Big brother and baby brother shirts. I love giving the older child a new book for mom to read while nursing.

The practical side of me does diapers and the fun side of me does a bagtag from www.polkadachs.com ($7.50) and gift enclosure cards from www.swaknotes.com ($6.95 for 20). I also agree on giving big bro/sis an activity. Books, colors, puzzles, etc.

Sent you a tag over on my blog if you have a chance this week!!

Perhaps a piggy bank or a little giraffe blanket for the new baby?

Well I will say MIni K got a "Promotion Present" in the mail from a friend when her baby brother was born and she LOVED it: It was a Big Sister Water bottle, princess silly bandz, lipgloss and too many ring pops to count. As for baby gifts you cant go wrong with a fluffy new blanket or a gift certificate to an online scrpabook site,if the mom is into it like ww.howtimeflies.com or a nice silver frame engraved with the 2 children's names for their first sibling photo. Baby C also got a pair of cufflinks and although he is only 8 weeks old today he will always have them!

Well, if they have everything, what about something pampering for mom? I know that receiving a massage gift certificate would be just as nice as some new crib sheets!

Something for the baby's room? Monogramed silver frame?
