Older sibling gift? Ni✗✗i 2 kids; Falcon Heights, Texas 5378 posts
12th Dec '12

I found out yesterday I am being induced on Sunday (blood pressure issues). So the couple of weeks more I had to get last minute things together etc is no more. So we have talked about buying my 3 year old dd a special gift to give to her at the hospital when she comes to meet her baby brother.... But I have NO idea what to get.... Christmas is coming up and she will be getting lots of Christmas presents so I don't want just some random meaningless gift. What is a good meaningful welcome to big sister-hood gift??? Did you get your older child(ren) something when they gained a sibling?? What??? Help me I only have 3 more days to get something lol....

We didn't when DD was born (DS was 3) and won't this time either (kids will be 7 and 4).



What about a book or something you can do together when baby's sleeping (like a board game)?

that's super cute:) I don't know she is getting like everything she actually asked for for christmas (she really didn't ask for much lol). So I don't know- I guess what I'll end up doing is giving her one of her Christmas gifts if I don't find something. I was going to make them both blankets and have her give him is when she came to meet him and then say that hers was from him- But I never made them:( I suck.

she has two and absolutely loved doing both:) I would say that would be absolutely PERFECT! But the downside is we don't have a build a bear for almost two hours:( And what's the fun of ordering one offline lol:( But I would love to take her later on to do a special big sister one! thankyou!
