If the mom-to-be is a wine enthusiast, or just likes a glass of wine with dinner, a great gift for her would be a nicely crafted wine basket.
Let's face it, the mommy-to-be had had to forego any wine for a whole 9 months, if she enjoys a glass every so often, she will love to have one after the baby is born. How easy it would be if she had a nice bottle on hand so she can enjoy a glass with some crackers without having to go to the store. She'll be home for a couple of weeks recuperating and won't be able to go shopping, or anywhere else for that matter, plus she will be very busy with the newborn.
You can make a wine gift basket yourself by getting 2 or 3 nice bottles of good wine and placing them in a pretty basket together with some cheese, crackers and chocolate.
Or if you prefer the easy way, you can get a prepared basket from any store that sells wines and liquors. Place a nice card with it and offer to come by and share a glass to celebrate the cute new addition she has brought into the world!
