    I would go with something small, like a basket of fruit and some lactation cookies, with a really nice card. Thoughtful and caring without being OTT.

    How about a card and small exercise book filled with useful tips for the early years. Ie tip #1 could be : sleep when baby sleeps when possible, tip #2 use cabbage leaves to help with full and painful breasts tip, #3 always take a spare top for mum for when bub or breast leaks

    That sort of thing. Maybe get her other friends and her family to add to it

    Best gift I received was an 'emergency pack'. It was a small basket that I kept unopened. In it there were 2 nappies, baby panadol, a small pack of wet wipes, a few nappy bags etc. It came in handy when my little one was in pain at midnight and I had no panadol. I also once made a book for someone which had different headings/questions for the parent to answer: what was your favourite game as a child, what is one thing you find attractive about my dad/mum, what are 3 qualities you have? Blah blah. They then put it in their child's keep sake box.

    An emergency pack is a great idea. You could add Infacol/Gripe water & a good thermometer.
