Ok, so I know it's probably more common for men to buy gifts for their wives who just gave birth, but I really want to do something special for my DH to celebrate the arrival of our little one. He has been so incredibly patient and wonderful with me all through this pregnancy and I want to do something special to let him know how much I appreciate him. Anyone have any ideas? I seem to be at a loss. I mean, I can write a sentimental card like nobody's business, but that just doesn't seem like enough.
I have been thinking of the same thing. And I'm actually bummed b/c I know Ed won't even acknowledge my hard work. *rolling eyes*
What about something to do w/ his hobbies or something? What does he like? What makes him an individual?
For instance, when we found out we were having this LO I got Ed a pretty pricey book regarding Moto GP. He is really into motorcycle racing. I told him that I didn't want him to lose himself when we become a family.
Some women will give their husbands utility belts w/ baby stuff. =/ Or what about his own baby bag that he can use for Evelyn, but when you give it to him it can be filled w/ things more dedicated to him?

What about a sweet Daddy frame that you can later add your Lo's picture too? He can put it on his night stand or on his desk at work. At first my Dh would have been like "oh great, let the dad gifts begin" like that was lame, but after DS got here he really changed. Now if you go to his office its filled with pictures of DS and framed artwork that Deacon does at daycare. He couldn't be more proud.
I would be so touched if he got me something! I was hoping he would with Luke. A little necklace or something that id always remember from that day... But I want him to think of something like that on his own, not because I asked.
How about a watch, or cuff links?
Baby #3 due July 6 2013
Incidentally, I probably won't be getting a gift either. We've already talked about not exchanging Christmas gifts and I am in charge of the finances, so he would have to let me know if he was planning to spend any significant amount of money...kind of ruins the surprise.
