that is expecting their 3rd child? This lady has got a girl and a boy. I have no idea what to get her. I am throwing her a surprise baby shower for the men that her husband works with. I want to get her a little something, but don't know what. Her other 2 children was born during the summer and so will this one. Oh, this baby is a boy also.

Help!!!

Diapers or a gift certificate. She most likely has a lot of things left over from her previous children but diapers can always be used or a gift certificate would let her pick out the little things that she still needs.

I agree with Elaine!!! Diapers! Thats what I told everyone to get me that asked!! diapers or a gift certificate to somewhere like a grocery store, or like Wal-Mart! (especially if she ends up bottlefeeding)

I always buy diapers and wipes for mommies that are not having their first or don't want to find out the sex (hard to pick out clothes). You could also get something to pamper the mom after the baby, manicure, massage, day of a cleaning service, etc.... Either would be great!

DIAPERS!!!!! And buy a bigger size...such as size 2. You can never have enough diapers. You might even want to do a "diaper shower" and have people bring diapers and wipes as gifts. I know I would have appreciated it! Especially since I have 2 in diapers!

Yep, what everyone's said. Diapers and wipes are always big plus gift certificates to Wal-Mart or a local grocery store.

Since I am throwing the surprise baby shower...it has only costed me $13.00. So I just want to spend about $10.00. Give or take a little. So since all of you have given me such great advice I am going to get a pack of White Cloud diapers $7.00(if she don't like them then she can take them back), White Cloud wipes$1.50 and I have already bought a pack of socks(6 pair) for a $1.00 at the Dollar Tree.

Thanks so much. I was looking around at Wal-Mart and couldn't make up my mind so I just said to myself "I'll ask the girls...they'll tell some good ideas"
