Last week I asked you What is the Best Gift to Give a New Mom? And I had about 40 people respond with a huge variety of answers but hands down the number one answer was….
Cook a Meal – 26 votes!
I have to agree. After Jude was born I loved having about a month’s worth of meals brought to us by our loving family and friends. It was just awesome.
Here are the runners up for best gifts for new moms:
Gift Certificate for Housework – 14 Votes
Gift Certificate for Pampering – 9 Votes
Entertainment – 4 Votes
Gift Basket – 4 Votes
Jewelry/Keepsake – 2 Votes
Remember you could vote for as many or few from the list as you wanted and even add ideas.
