My friend has just had her 2nd baby she's got a boy already. As she already has a boy she has all the clothes/cot sheets etc..

When i had my little girl she got me some lovely clothes from H&M but I had no girls clothes as my first was a boy.

I'm a bit stuck as to what to get her for the baby, any ideas please?

She said she has loads of clothes & there is no point getting more as I know how quick they grow out of them & they don't even get worn.

I'm looking for inspiration - HELP X

I bought my friend's little boy a piggy bank, and she really loved it, as she said nobody had bought her anything she could keep (apparently she'd been swamped with pairs of jeans for the baby!).

I also got a little fabric book for him, probably a bit young, but he seemed happy turning the pages and staring at the shapes (he's 3 months now).

I thought he'd already have been given lots of traditional gifts for newborns by family members, but I don't think they're as popular these days as my friend said she'd had none of those.

Another great idea is a baby memory book. My MIL was given one for my DH when he was born. He was born 2 months premature and had a 50/50 survival rate. His book contains pictures of him in the incubator at just under 2lb, his first lock of hair, his first word, his family etc..

Its falling apart, and tatty but my DH treasures it 34 years later.

Thanks guys that's a great idea re: piggy bank. Can I ask where you got it from?

I got it from a card & gift shop - Took me ages to find one, although I think I did see one in M&S or Next after i'd got mine.
