So my baby shower is next weekend and I wanted to get a gift for my mom and mother in law to give to them after the shower. My mom is hosting the shower and her gift for that will be a mani/pedi and dinner the night before.

But, I want to get them both something baby related. We're going to get my mom a car seat base, because she is local and will be babysitting a lot (she'll do part time care for us when she retires in 9 months). My MIL though lives out of town, and really isn't a super sentimental person. So we thought a webcam would be good so she could see the baby more, but she already has one. What else could we get her? I am totally drawing a blank. Any time she sees the baby, we'll be there (so she won't need a car seat base or pack n play, etc). And, like I said, she's not very sentimental (my mom suggested a scrapbook of the baby thus far and then to add pages to it later for her) and I don't want to lose my u/s pics that I have.

Ideas?? DH and I are totally at a loss!!

If your not doing the scrapbook because of the U/s pics then you can can your u/s or take a pic. Do then you have copies to use for other things. That what I use for albums/ scrap book.

Does she like jewelry? I can only think of something that says Grandma on it. When you say baby related, does that mean you want her to have something the baby can use when he visits?

Thank you Jaidynsmum for the beautiful siggy

well we arent doing the scrapbook idea because she just isnt really a sentimental person, but i like the jewelry thing...

as far as baby-related, we are open to anything along the by lines - so if it makes it easier when she visits or we visit, or something she can use while at home to connect with the baby, etc.

A scrap book would be really sweet, can you scan the ultrasound pictures and then print them out so you have copies?

What about a really nice picture frame with an ultrasound pic in it. Then you can update the photo as the baby gets older. Everyone is different, but my mom would like something that says grandmother like a bag to carry or a sweatshirt.
