    Default Baby shower gift

    My best friend is interstate so I have no idea what to purchase.

    She said not to buy anything? Would u respect those wishes? :/ I think she feels because I have 2 X children I can't 'afford or can' do gifts... I hope that makes sense?

    I will be making my mum buy so it's not expensive in post.

    That's a good idea.

    Our tastes are a little bit different kind of.

    She bought my capsule, baby bag and few things before I left as she's in bit of a financial dip before she got preg.

    I was thinking of buying her a humidifier lmao something practical 😂😝 a pram liner and maybe a gold bracelet? I'm the Aunty. We have been best friends for 23 years.

    Those are very generous gifts. If you can get her a humidifier that would be a great gift as a lot of parents wouldn't think to get one and it's a great thing to have on hand.

    Try sending her flowers. I'm sure she'll love it. Everyone loves flowers.
