New moms generally don't know this particular thing about what their baby needs - floor time - so I would suggest a Tiny Love Tummy Time Mat. Babies may be safe in a carrier, be it front, backpack, or car/swing, but their bodies need to develop muscles and certain brain development, which happens while on the floor. For example, while on their back, they actually open up the pathways in their brains for memory and attention!
Merry Christmas to you all!

A book...sign it and date it....a great one is David's Christmas by David Shannon...it is so funny! It is a book that can be read for the next 5 years or more. David is a character in many of Shannon's books. If this is a close friend you can continue to purchase them for birthdays and future Christmases...date each with an inscription...a great keepsake! It is never to early to read aloud to a child and they are never too old to hear you read to them.

Pick out a few classic books: Goodnight Moon, Pat The Bunny, Guess How Much I Love You, etc.
However, I would include gift receipts and NOT sign them just in case they are duplicates!

You could get her an ornament that says "Baby's 1st Christmas" Some of them have it where you can put the date, weight, height and name. I did that for my nephew this year. I also bought one for my niece when she was born. Try going onto www.bronners.com. I think I spelled it right. They had alot to choose from.

Just saw that the company that makes Babylegs legwarmers now makes a blanket called a Woobie--you can tie it on so that your child can't kick it off--it also has other uses. Google "babylegs" to check it out--I have two kids, and rarely see anything baby-related that I want, but I want that blanket!

I just saw some gift cards in CVS in the gift card stand. There were some Anne Gedddes ones that made me wish I needed a baby gift. SO cute! I think that they were Visa cards to spend anywhere.

I know the perfect gift!!! The One Trip Tote!! It's awesome. My favorite thing this year. It's no ordinary tote. Think of it as a large open hoizontal carryALL. She can use it for years to come. Laos everything you need for the day and make only one trip to the car. Great for baby toys, trips, school trips, parties, laundry, pool/beach. Even to organize your trunk. Wouldve paid anything for mine. Have given many as gifts. Perfect for any busy mom. Check them out at www.onetriptote.com.
