This is a little strange, I suppose, but I am 27 years old and NONE of my friends have babies. Not a one.
That’s all about to change though next month when the wife of one of my best male buds from high school gives birth to their first baby – a girl named Samantha!
I’m really excited for the two of them, and really excited to meet their daughter. (I’m also really excited to see my friend, who is currently stationed overseas in Bahrain, but has hopefully planned his two-week furlough next month to coincide with his daughter’s birth!) But here’s the thing – I’ve been fretting about what to get them for the baby! I have never purchased a baby present for a close friend and I have no idea what to get them.
As you all know, I hate registries of any kind. I’d like to get them something that is personal and unique.
Do any of you have any suggestions? Are any of you new moms? What is something you would have loved to have received? Do you have any retailers or Etsy stores that you always frequent when buying baby gifts?
Please – I’m open to any and all suggestions!!
