my wife is due at the end of january.... can any one help me with some gift ideas? I'd like to buy her something that she can use after the baby comes and she's already received a ton of gifts at her showers. A
Any help is appreciated
A new camera or video-recorder would be nice.
6fsn:Spa or gift cert for new clothes. Please try to remember she is still a woman and your wife. She may not want something to use for the baby as a gift. I love my kids, but hate that MIL always buys me things to use for them.
Totally agree with this. My ILs got both DH and me baby stuff for our birthdays this year. Not that I care about my birthday and getting stuff, but really? I think it's important to remember that while she's a mom, she's still her own person. I like the new clothes idea too. She is going to be so sick of her maternity ones if she isn't already. Maybe even a nice weekend away for you two.

If your wife is a reader, I say go for the kindle fire. I absolutely love mine.
Agree with PPs about not getting something for the baby. At this point her whole existence is tied up with the baby (at this point we're so pregnant you feel it ALL.THE.TIME) so reminding her that she's more than just a mom will be nice. For this year and future years as well.
I also agree with the spa day. A prenatal massage and pedicure would go far for most women because like I said, we are all very pregnant and pregnancy is not very comfortable at this point. Plus, she probably can't get to her toes to paint them anymore. ;)
I want a camera for Christmas. I love taking pictures tho and really want a new camera before this baby comes (I got the camera I have now right before our 1st was born 7 years ago). It's time for an upgrade.
But, I agree with the other ladies. I nice spa day sounds amazing!!! :) Maybe get 2 if you can afford it, that way she can go with a girlfriend. Spa days are always better with a friend to take along :)
A prenatal massage is a great idea, I had one of those at 38 weeks and it really helped with my achy joints.
Personally, I would not mind a gift for the baby, but you'll have to judge that one based on your wife as some women are saying not to go that route.
i would not recommend clothes, buying cute clothes for myself is one of the things I miss most during pregnancy... It would only bum me out to get clothes.
a friend gave me a necklace from origami owl which opens up and you can put charms on it. Mine has the initial of our baby girls name, plus little feet and the word family. I love it and can't wait to wear it. Perhaps something like that?
My husband just got me a Pandora bracelet for our 1 year anniversary! I love it and it has a baby carriage charm on it among other charms! It was really cute!!
