    Default Inexpensive gift idea for mom of 1 month old?

    Hi Ladies, I'm meeting a new mom friend of mine in a couple hours for coffee and I'd like to bring her a little something. I'm currently at my office so making food isn't an option. Another friend of mine suggested a manicure gift certificate as a treat for her, but I wasn't sure if she'd kind of roll her eyes like - hello.... I've got a newborn... manicures are not at the top of the list...

    When your baby was 1 month, what would have been an appreciated gift?

    Thanks!

    A Starbucks gift card! That was my fav gift with a newborn. I made sure to get out of the house at least once a day and since there is a Starbucks less than half a mile from my house (and I'm sure most people's houses ), I often ended up there. Plus, it was a nice place to meet up with other moms and to stop in for a drink if I was at the mall.

    I was only able to get one manicure with the baby as a newborn, luckily he didn't wake up until they were on the pedicure.

    That is a great idea Steph! Esp. since she said she really enjoys getting out of the house. Thank you!

    I'm putting a copy of this over in the new Gift Ideas thread. You might want to pop over from time to time to update it with the sort of things you might want to give or receive as gifts
