During the first few months the new baby will grow quite quickly. This means that she will outgrow outfits quite fast. A good gift that will be welcome and useful is an array of outfits that range in sizes. Put together a collection of 2 or 3 outfits for every month range within the first 6 or 12 months.
Think about how much you want to spend and get your collection together. The best places for good and inexpensive baby clothes are stores such as Target, Carters, Wall Mart and Marshalls.
Figure out what season coincides with the baby's monthly ages and buy the outfits accordingly. If the baby is born in May or June, get her 2 or 3 light summer outfits in the 0-3 month range. Then get 2 or 3 fall outfits in the age range 3-6, warm winter getups in the 6-9 range and then a couple of spring outfts for the 9-12 age range.
This should at least get enough clothes for the start of each season, before mom can get out and buy a few more. You can also add accessories such as hats, mittens, socks, soft booties and even some shoes for when she's about 12 months.
You can find nice quality baby clothes at relatively low prices so that buying many outfits won't have to cost a fortune and will definitely be a welcoming gift for the new mommy.
