Hawk Listeners Share Baby Shower Gift Ideas

My brothers Jeff and Brian with Beth the day she came home from the hospital.

Almost 26 years ago something really awesome happened.  After the birth of two little brothers, my sister Beth finally came into the world.  I couldn’t have been more ecstatic- my very own living baby doll.

After the novelty of having a baby sister wore off, the years growing up seemed to crawl, especially since I was eight years older than my sister and had to share a bedroom with her.

Now that we’re adults and close friends, I’m amazed at how quickly the years are fading away. And now that little baby girl that I dressed up in costumes and who’s face I painted with makeup and who I tortured relentlessly is a grown woman expecting her second baby this fall.

This weekend we’re throwing a baby shower for my sister as she gets ready to welcome my second niece into the world and I’m struggling with gift ideas. Gift ideas for a first baby are easy because most parents don’t have anything, but by the time the second baby comes around, they’ve usually got a grip on things and usually have stuff from their first baby camped out in the attic or basement. So, I turned to you this morning for help on suggestions of what I could get my sister and I’ll tell you what- you came through in a BIG way with so many amazing ideas.  Here are some of those ideas:

  • A basket filled with baby meds- you know- all the stuff parents never think about until their baby is sick in the middle of the night and there isn’t an open pharmacy.
  • A gift certificate good for a babysitting session with aunt Traci so Mom can go to the spa and enjoy a day of pampering.
  • Homemade freezable meals for the first week the new baby is home, complete with paper products so nobody has to cook or clean.
  • A big sister shirt for Kayleigh and a little sister shirt for the new baby.
  • A wicker basket and filled with random items like lotion, shampoo, wipes, spoons, washcloths, diapers etc.
  • A basket filled with books. (Tell me this wouldn’t be a PERFECT gift for this book loving aunt to give!)
  • A bag filled with replacement burp cloths and bibs.

So what did I decide on?  Guess you’ll have to listen on Wednesday September 4th when I get back from my long Labor Day weekend to find out!
