Gift exchange? — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

Gift exchange?

I was just thinking that I miss all the gift exchanges we used to do in 3T. Would anybody be interested in doing one on PAIF? In the past we've used Elfster. (I don't know how to set up an exchange but if somebody was willing to do that it would be awesome)

My idea was a gift exchange for the moms, I find when you have babies everybody buys for the baby (which is awesome) but maybe a gift for the mom, bath stuff, lotions, hair things etc would be refreshing for the mom's. Let me know what you think, or any other ideas about what kind of gift exchange.

    me too!

    I would be willing to organize it through elfster if people want me to.   However the sign up date would have to be by the 4th or not until  that MOnday since I'm going away next weekend.
