    Cute Diaper Bag – A diaper bag is essential because she and the baby would have to get out and get fresh air sometime! Diaper bags will not only hold diapers but also other baby essentials like wipes, feeding bottles, etc.

“Mommy” Photo Frames

Mom photo frames are also a great gift, especially for the expectant first time mom. Actually I only have two recommendations for this section.

Mom Photo Frame

Mom Photo Frame

First one is this bronze colored “MOM” photo frame. The letter O in the word mom is holds the picture and this frame can stand on its own.

This mom frame will be a great gift as a baby shower present to a co-worker who will be taking a leave of absence to give birth and take care of her baby. You can expect she will bring this one when she goes back to the office.

The second one is this “Baby Bump” photo frame where a silhouette of a pregnant woman is printed on the frame and the tummy part holds the picture. This is perfect to hold ultrasound photos and the baby’s first picture in a few months.
