For the first few weeks the new mother to be will be spending lots of time at home. Although her time may be limited and she'll be busy caring for the little one, she will need a few moments to relax and recoup.
A great gift idea for the new mom is a few good movies on DVD, get 2 or 3 good films of her favorite genre and pack them up nicely in a basket along with some candy and popcorn.
Offer to come by and watch a movie or two with her and if he baby cries or needs attention let her sit while you go tend to him and give the new mommy a well deserved break.
