View Full Version : Help!!! Need ideas from parents!
I need some serious help and ideas for a gift for a colleague who has just welcomed their 3rd child.
I'm guessing they already have most things, but I have been asked to get them something 'practical' on behalf of the company ...
I don't have any kids so I'm a bit clueless ... Any suggestions?? I can probably spend up to about $300.
Thanks heaps :D
I got a voucher for cuisine courier from work it was awesome!!!
a westfield voucher?
if it cannot be a voucher then..
a pack of clothing, nappies and wipes and rattles?
a cleaner to give them a little extra help around the house.
a cleaner, ironing service. is there a dinnner service in the area.
Voucher for a cleaning service, dinner service, or photography.
All fantastic ideas - thanks!
I'm a bit worried about giving a voucher ... particularly for food as I know some of the family is very fussy/has special dietary needs.
I thought of a stash of nappies (one box of every size), but then there is the issue of storage :rolleyes:
Any other suggestions?
A voucher for photography is a great idea! I would have loved that
I was going to say cleaner too. Or a nappy service. Something like that would be fantastic I reckon!
Is it the Mum or Dad who works with you? You could always just ask the Dad what would work best? That way it's still a surprise for Mum, but they get something that they would prefer?
On a side note - how's your shoulder? Hope it's all better by now :)
What about one of those framed had and feet moulding package things? My friend got one at her baby shower i always meant to get it done with ds but never got round to it.

How about a nappy cake? (Providing they will use disposables). We made one for a collegue and she loved it. You can take off 'one layer' at a time too so you don't need to store the whole thing at once. We had lots of fun making it and it looked awesome :D pm me if you would like more info
It's tricky to come up with something practical, what's practical to one person can be completely different to what's practical to another.
With that being said, I've often seen little 'gift packs' of baby soaps/shampoos/etc which are pretty handy.
Another thing (That I certainly appreciated) was a set of baby blankets. I believe you can never have enough and there are some really adorable ones out there. If you got a couple of different ones to suit differing weather patterns it'd be pretty good. Some people might not agree, but I reckon you can't go wrong with a nice soft baby blanket. Very practical and very cute at the same time :-P
Good luck! Also, try having a look around for universal pram attachments and the like. lots of handy accessories that will work with any pram out there.
