Now that I've gone through being the one hibernating that life, I want to share what I think are the best gifts, the things that came into play at the perfect times!
~didn't matter the size or the brand they ALL came in at just the right time. If it wasn't the size or the brand I needed at that time I took them to the store and exchanged them.
2. Blankets/receiving blankets
~blankets the softer the better, the better the sleeping and snuggling. He never grows out of them & they don't expire.
3. Gift Certificates
~you may think that your not putting a lot of thought in your gift but in reality you are. These helped me out the most get the odds and ends I needed to feel "prepared" before my Bug came. I was also able to save some of those gift certificates to get everything I needed but didn't know I needed. Perfect gift!
The cute clothes, stuffed animals, and all the necessities like bottles breasts pumps etc were all helpful as well but I think the three things above that came in baskets (I still have and use every basket I received) are great things for others to bring to anyone's shower.

The best gifts I got were the ones assuring me my child was being born into a village surrounded by love. As long as your gift is filled with love and well wishes then its the perfect gift to celebrate this life!
