Gift to take to hospital for new big sister, ideas?

I want to give dd a special gift at the hospital when she becomes a big sister. I want her to feel involved, important and excited about the new baby. I saw some cute "big sister" hospital bracelets that are reusable so she can wear a bracelet just like mommy and daddy, but that is all so far. I have browsed online a bit but not finding any more ideas. It can be one big gift or a bunch of fun little stuff, doesn't matter. Any ideas? TIA

We bought those crayons that you can use to make your own iron on's. The kids made shirts that said "big brother". The could not wear them until the baby was born. They were VERY excited to finally be able to wear them. THe baby had a onsie that said "little brother."

We got this book (the brother one) when we had our second - There's a Brand New Baby At Our House...And I'm The Big Sister!

It's a very sweet keepsake book for both children - baby puts in a handprint, sibling puts their handprint in. Every section has spaces for each child including how the older sibling feels, their impressions, etc.

I made DD a bracelet from some beads I found at Michaels. I spelled her name and then added some flowers and dragonfly beads. She was a little too young to really care (22 months), and really only wanted to be able to help with the baby.
