My SIL has had a really stressful, difficult pregnancy with twins with severe IUGR. She's suffered from just about every possible pregnancy ailment and she and my brother have to move house this weekend, which is just two days away from when she's due to have the twins delivered four weeks early by c-section.
I'm all over baby gifts (got heaps of stuff for them) but I'd really like to send my SIL and my brother too, as the father, something useful and also something cheery to help them when they go into hospital and can't think of anything to save myself! Any ideas? They're kind of spiritual/new-age (although I hate that term), if that helps, although I know they've got a tonne of lucky crystals already!

I'd get them a months supply of dinners for when they come OUT of hospital ... You could get Lite N Easy (there are others I just can't think) sent to them ...

OMG, that's a great idea - thanks! It also reminded me that a while ago I'd thought to arrange an online grocery delivery (from Woolies or Coles) with useful and fun stuff and send it to them.
Can anyone think of any little uplifting or calming books or trinkets SIL could take into hospital with her?
