    my boyfriends sister is having her baby very very soon, in around six weeks.
    now, i have a few questions.. when you get a card is it to the person whos given birth or is it to the baby like welcome to the world etc ?

    and cute, original, personalised gift ideas for a ickle baby boy? :) xxx

    My sister had her baby a week or so ago and I wrote the card to her and her husband :) I guess one to the baby as a welcome is cute too though I hadn't thought of that! Xxx

    Card is usually to the parents but it would be lovelt to get a welcome to world one. Present wise a hooded towel which you stitch babys name onto maybe? Or a nappy cake, or possibly a cute photo frame? Also in terms of boys specifically mayb a little hat or outfit you go and choose specifically if you are good at knitting knit or crochet something a blanket made from patchwork to put baby onto to play or make a memory box prehaps?

    I got a hamper at my baby shower and it was great!

    just get a nice storage box from home and bargains or that kind of shop - can get diff colours and materials

    then just grab loads of essential stuff - bibs, creams, wipes, bath stuff, dummies, nappies.... can be done fairly cheap if you dont want to spend much.. but can also go wild and buy outfits etc to put in too.

    bit of cellophane and some ribbon - bobs your uncle!
