Does anyone else ever play “Would You Rather…” on long road trips? My husband and I love to play and try to come up with the craziest of options. His favorite that he always asks me is, “Would you rather have a PoGo stick for a leg or a grocery cart wheel for a foot?” (I think the wheel is the obvious choice, but that’s just me!)
After having a baby of my own, I often ask myself when purchasing a baby gift for someone else “would they rather have a bumbo or an outfit? a blanket or a drying rack? a boppy or a…. gift card?” It seems that I am smack–dab in the middle of baby season since lots of friends and family members are having babies these days and so I’m always faced with buying the perfect gift. It’s so nice to receive the essentials and what you pain-stakingly registered for but what do moms really want? And more importantly, what do moms like to give?
Before I became a mom, I was one of those gift-givers that gave what I wanted the baby to receive- usually a cute outfit! But now that I am on the opposite side of motherhood, I feel a little more pressure to give a really good gift. No, not expensive- but one that a new mom will forever thank me for. But what exactly would that be? I received SO many fabulous gifts from friends and family and Halle wouldn’t have 90% of what she does if it weren’t for others’ generousity. It’s hard to choose one gift idea for a new mom. So I’m curious to know what you, our readers, give to new mommies.
