One of my friends is due in a few weeks, and though we're (all of us in the same nutritional internship) having a shower for her after the baby arrives, I am snagging lunch with her in a few days and wanted to give her something small-ish, but useful. I saw the thread on baby gifts, but they weren't quite suitable here. I'm hoping for something helpful and non-SAD without being overtly "paleo" (whatever that even means in this situation).
She definitely isn't paleo (she more or less follows ADA guidelines), though she does have a bit of an alternative vibe since I know she had originally been hoping for a birth with minimal intervention and a midwife before she discovered she was high risk. She will be breastfeeding.
She's already had two showers as it is so I'm sure she's got a lot of the usual, but I was hoping to come up with some nice token. My default would be to bake and decorate customized cookies, but I would feel especially guilty handing over a box of those, however pretty they might be. (And however sure I am that she won't be eating properly after the baby arrives...I don't want to be the one supplying the goods!)
Does anyone have any good suggestions?
