Every day this week I'll share my picks for great gifts for every type of pregnant mama on your list -- the Second-Time Mama-to-Be, the Zen-Seeking Mama, the All-Natural Mama, and the Stylish Mama. Up first, Mama-Any Minute -- you know, the mama-to-be who's just about ready to pop. So get ideas, or drop big hints as appropriate!
Product: Baby Briefcase
Extras: Mom provides the goods to go inside -- and this will not be a challenge.
Why I Love It: From the moment your little one arrives, the paper piles begin -- birth certificate, social security card, pediatrician records, etc. This will give a new mama one place to shove it all without having to think twice. I still use the one I had for my first kid -- super-convenient.
