    I’d probably do #2 or 3, though either way the gift card could also be to wherever she’s registered for other stuff. I’m always hesitant to go off-registry because maybe there’s a reason they’re not registered for those things (getting a bunch as hand-me-downs, hope to avoid using pacifiers, etc)

    Probably a card? My typical go-to gift is a basket of baby meds, though.

    Did she register for stuff outside the newborn phase? Like spoons, sippy cups, etc. If not, I'd probably do a basket of stuff like that. Or outfits in larger sizes.

    Another option would be books - M's cousin got us her three kids' favorite childhood books (they're all in college now) and I thought that was a really cute idea.

    I like 3, or the books idea. I basically always give books as a baby gift (sometimes with a small tie in toy, for example the most recent one I got them a copy of the Hungry Caterpillar that attaches to a stroller, and the matching toy where the different segments of the caterpillar are different textures and materials).

    We have that stroller toy and C is a big fan.

    I would get a gift card to Target & an outfit. Gift cards were everything after the baby was born. I think assuming that she wants pacifiers or will be nursing isn't the safest bet.

    I had A look at the registry and he found the diaper pail we have on there so I was able to get that from bbb with a 20% off coupon so it was $51 and then I got 2 outfits and a book! Not really sure how I missed the pail the first time, clearly was having a fail all around last night!
