What's a great gift for your wife whose just came home from giving birth to your first child?
In a few weeks my wife will be giving birth to our first child. What's a great gift to give her. I just want to give her something for having to endure pregnancy and all its pains and sacrifices. I just want to make her feel great and appreciated. And I want to tell her I'm really proud of her.
Time....time to rest...time to heal...time to reflect on the miracle of birth...do everthing?
A ring is nice and you could find one with your baby's birthstone. (Although she may not be able to wear it for a while with her swollen fingers). Or a pearl necklace is always nice.
None of us is going to know what your wife would appreciate better than you do. However as HeavyM46 stated pampering her and giving her rest would be a great start.
A gift certificate to a day at the spa. I gave one to a friend and she loved it. She had swelling that lingered for awhile and the message helped. Especially, with her feet swelling. There are actually some spas out there that do pre and post natal massages. Also, in the month's to come you want to go do a girl thing for an hour or two and get your nails done and/or a have a pedi.
A great gift to her would be a new wardrobe of clothes. But wait until she looses the baby weight. She should like her new clothes on her new shaped body.
Too often men feel that a woman wants something material to make her feel appreciated. While that may be true, more often than not the little things mean so much more. By little things, I mean paying attention to her needs; taking some of the burden off of her.
Your wife has been pregnant for a long time. I'm sure it seems much longer to her than it really has been. By the time she comes home from the hospital with the new baby, she will have endured a lot of pain and she will be exhausted. She will most likely appreciate being pampered in little ways. Put as much time as you can into taking care of the baby. That will have a double benefit as it will give you bonding time with your new child. Give her a chance to rest. Rub her feet, give her a massage.
In particular, pay attention to her mood when the visitors descend upon her and the baby. If you sense that she's starting to feel tired, shoo the visitors out. Sometimes the Grandmoms try to take over. If you see that happening, run interferance. Wait on her, attend to her needs, make her feel special. Remind her how beautiful she is because she won't be feeling beautiful right away.
These things mean so much more than buying something at the store. But you know your wife best. If you think something bought will make her feel good, do that, too.
And congatulations on the new addition. Best of luck to you all.
One of the best gifts she can receive is you expressing your feelings in words (like written down on a card, or verbalized).
If you wanted to do something else in addition to that, I would suggest any one of the following:
1. A soft fluffy rug to put on the floor at her side of the bed. Her feet will appreciate this year-round every time she gets up in the morning!
2. A scooba floor-mopping robot (if you have uncarpeted areas which are sufficiently uncluttered to work well with random-path methods).
3. Earrings - if you don't know the style she likes, try something similar to her engagement or wedding ring (that way you know they will all match)
4. A bouquet of bright flowers, this will make the home look great and make her feel special and cared-for even when she is busy with baby's needs. Only if she is not allergic though.
a maid. someone to concentrate on all the extraneous things that is not baby. gives her time to bond and recover and not worry that there are dust bunnies somewhere.
You have given it already 9 months ago and that's what she will be bringing home, to share the joy with you!
You could give her flowers. It would be a nice touch.

Do animals feel pain in giving birth?Today, my Bible teacher told me that animals don't have birth pain like human does. When Adam and Eve were deceived by the Serpent and sinned, then God cursed Eve to suffer the pain in childbirth.
