So, for the shower, you could surprise her with a gift certificate to her favorite store so she can get herself new clothes after the baby is born. You can go shopping with her and make it a girl's shopping day, or if she's in need for some time alone and a little break from a colicky baby, you could offer to watch the baby while she shops.
