Question SIL wants to buy our nb a gift. What do you suggest?

SIL/BIL bought us a great carseat when we had dd (our first). It was a great sale but still a big purchase IYKWIM. Fast forward to now - we just had ds and they want to get us another big item. Problem is that we pretty much have all the basics.
- carseats galore
- strollers
- highchair (dd should be grown out of it by the time ds needs it)
- pack n play
- bouncers
- swing (we actually could use a non battery swing but the one we have actually is SIL's old one and it would be awkward to explain why we need a new one )

What would you suggest for her to get us? Any thoughts?

That's hilarious. My other SIL just left a message that she knows someone who's selling theirs. I think you might be onto something...

My Mom stopped by the hospital the day we had DS and gave us this. Not sure if she thought I was giving birth to a 6 month old....

Money for a class, like Music or Gymboree. We never seem to have the money for these kinds of extras.

I second this. As much as we insisted that we would do just as many photos of DD as we did of DS....well, time has been lacking and money a bit tighter. We take a TON at home, but I just can never seem to make it to the photo studio to have them done...or they end up being of both kiddos because I can't manage to go with just one kid We give this to all of our close family members at baby showers now. Can't go wrong with pics
