Have they registered at a store like Babies R Us? I would try to get something non-gender specific, like a bouncy seat, or something for the nursery, if you know what they are decorating it with.

Gift cards to any store they are registered for are always nice. Once you get the baby home there is always something you realize you need that has been forgotten.

That's the thing. They are not registered at any stores. I like the idea of a picture frame (greeneyegirl). Thanks girls for the suggestions.

Are you or your friend in school? A few girls I know have got pregnant and had babies and at my college's bookstore they have such cute little unisex onesies with our school colors and logo. They even have matching hats and booties.

From my infant babysitting years, I'm guessing you can never have too many onesies w/ how often babies spit up, spill, or overflow their diaper.

True. And you can never have too many receiving blankets. They leak through the diapers on to quite a few a day. Ah, memories.

That reminds me of when I was little, my mom got Ditie (sp?) Service where they deliver clean cloth diapers and pick up the dirty ones. I had one that I kept as my "Softy" and my mom used to have me do this trick like I was a pet: she'd fold my Softy and put it somewhere in the stack of new diapers. Then they'd watch as I'd crawl over, feel each one, and pull out my Softy.

Some of the best gifts I got:

Mattress pads (cuz when babies leak, they leak everywhere)
Fitted crib sheets (see above comment)
Receiving blankets (see above comment)
Change table pads
Gift certificates for home cooked meals from friends
Group gifts for big ticket items: car seat, high chair, stroller, swing and excersaucer
Exersaucer and battery operated swing - I would not have survived it had not been for these two items.

Try to stay away from stuffed animals...babies and kids end up with way too many.

Clothes - go for larger sizes (6mos and bigger) as babies grow fast, sleepers/onesies are nice and easy to get on/off babies.

Necessities - diapers, penaten cream, dove baby wash, unscented wipes.

Decorations: peel/stick alphabet and grow charts, framed picture of Pooh or Tigger

Music - there is a beautiful cd by Nicolette Larson that is filled with soothing music for babies

Hope this helps

a good unisex colour is cream or yellow.

or white, but stains show better.

or go to a spa and get her a special "pregnancy" massage (most spa's offer the services)
I've done this for a couple of showers and the Moms to be always tell me that it was really needed - esp once they hit their 3rd trimester
