okay heres the situation:
my friend and his wife are having a baby in 4 months, so i need to start thinking about a gift soon. i have only talked to his wife about 3 times before, so i dont really know how she is, so im not sure exactly what would fit (as far as personallity and everything- you know, some girls dig the whole spa treatment gift after the baby is born, some dont...as for her, im not sure.)
i really cant come up with anything except for making them a baby book. they just found out that its going to be a boy, and its their first. i was going to do make a square book with a black cover with a cut out square (window) in the middle and two baby foot prints next to eachother in black ink on the white paper that shows through, and on the cover right under it the babys name and under the page with the footprints "the first years" (you wouldnt see this from the cover, only when its opened) the rest i wanted to do in white paper with really light green stripes on the paper (since its a boy). (im sorry if you cant draw the visual in your head, im bad at describing!!) my reasoning for this gift is because my parents didnt keep a baby book and i really wish that they did, and also because im sure they will be getting boatloads of clothes and other baby things too. i was thinking about including a gift card for a restaurant for the two of them as well, just in case they didnt dig the book so much.
but i really need some input here. i dont know if i should leave it blank inside, or have some common questions (ie: babys first step, first hair cut, etc)
now that i described this im thinking it sounds really cheesy, but its a baby so i guess its different. oh man, i relaly do need help here. thanks in advance.
