I can't think of anything, but we just had dinner with our parents and told them verbally. I'm not very creative!

We actually did easter baskets for our parents last year. We put the following in them: i love grandma/grandpa bibs, baby toys (rattle, baby keys), cheap bottles (they were 3 for 2 dollars or so), baby mittens, baby hat. Just some ideas. Here is a picture of one of ours:

I think you should do this poem as well! Very cute!

Hmmm - lots of good ideas already! What about picking an easter baby outfit? Or buying those little rubber duckies that have a big duckie with a baby duckie on its back

I can't wait to hear how it goes!!!

I remember when I was pg that some of the maternity stores had pins for expectant grandmas. You could put one of those in too.

well i got a few bibs, some cute onesies, bottles, pacifiers, toys and the Easter buckets, which are cuter than the baskets i found and of course candy. I may still find a few more cute things or i may dig through my stash and see what i can find. I need to get some cute spring ribbon now and the clear cellophane. That means a trip to hobby lobby probably tomorrow I wan these things made!! I am happy with my purchases and will take pics of the stuff before i put it in.

And my bonus buy, a $6 pack of wipe refills!!
