    Default Help! Please with a gift idea

    My DH's cousin has a baby who is just over 6 months old. We are at a loss as to what to get them for a gift. The baby is all set. I was thinking of some wine and pasta in a gift basket...like the special, fun kind of pasta shapes, but I can't find any. Then I was thinking about a movie at home gift basket, but I can't see them using that.

    In addition to having a baby, they also take care of her mother who is very ill.

    TIA!

    What about a gift certificate for a restaurant and/or a home delivery of food service? I believe there are places like that, though I can't think of any - you may find some with an Internet search...? If they have a baby and are taking care of an ill mother, they may appreciate the time-saver. Then you could spruce it up by putting the gift card in a basket with a bottle of wine or something?

    Cost Plus and Sur la Table sells shaped pastas - although you'll have better selection if you search online (like this place)

    Thank you Katy! I'm going to order a few pastas from there. That was exactly what I was looking for and I don't have either of those stores near me.

    what about the offer of a night off. Maybe loan them your house and you go to theirs for the night and help take care of her mom and their baby. They would maybe like a night away.
