Can you please give me a recomendation of a present i could get my better half for when she has the baby (due in 8 weeks). I know i'm really lazy and unimaginative but i thought you guys would know best. I was thinking of a small mp3 player as i got her a 40GB creative about a year ago and she complains its as big as a walkman so defeats the purpose. I'd be grateful for better suggestions. I've been dropping hints that i'd like a PS3, but she says i don't get a present. Is she only joking.... surely i get something too? Thanks

Hi there, I can't quite imagine her having time to sit down with an MP3 player when the baby comes along, instead you should get her something personal and thoughtful for when the baby arrives. Personally speaking, I think a nice bit of jewellery would work! xxx

how about a nice piece of jewellery like a ring with the birthstone of your new baby in it? i wouldnt be too upset if you don't get a present...after all you're not the one who's been carrying a sack of spuds around for 9 months solid! ;) xxx kim xx

Thanks all, I'll get her a piece of jewellery and a voucher for some spa treatments. Good thinking about the mp3 player, if she cant hear the baby cry..... i'll have to get up.....phew!
