    I usually put together a basket of things that I loved during pregnancy/labour/new mum.

    Dummies, lanisoh cream, sudocream, panodol, nurofen, thermometer, boogey sucker. I usually spend more than $50 to fill the basket (usually put nappies in the bottom and then cover with a cute wrap or blanket)
    But you could do a mini one for under $50 - you could get a cute white little bucket (those tin ones that are adorable) and fill it with USEFUL bits and pieces

    I have found some cute baby things in target before that had the hungry caterpillar motif on them. I didn't realize at the time, but the expectant mother was obsessed with the very hungry caterpillar. I got a onesie and a blanket for her. Baby turned out to be a boy and looked very cute! Otherwise you could make up a little gift pack: get a nice towel, muslin wraps, maybe a onesie with non gender specific colours/prints, powder, sudocream, baby bath gel/oil, some cute socks...

    If you have a look on Madeit or Etsy, you can find some beautiful, handmade baby stuff.

    Another vote for Etsy. There are some GORGEOUS gender neutral hats, blankets, nursery things - all sorts of things.
    I love Etsy and all the gifts I have brought from there have been hits
