Wednesday Wondering: Big Sister Present

In the tradition of Wondering on Wednesday started by Maggie of From the Heart:

My favorite toddler is about to become a big sister (whether she realizes it or not) and so we have been talking about if we should get her something to mark the new status, and if so what? from us or the new baby? Give to her at the hospital or when we come home?

Any suggestions or recommendations?


  1. I would get her a gift from the new baby. We did this for our older daughter when Ellie was born. If you happen to get something like a DVD, do yourself a favor and make sure the DVD is actually in the box before giving it to the new big sister (I know from experience that it doesn't go over well when the new baby gives the big sister an empty DVD box.). A baby doll would be a lovely big sister gift. I highly recommend American GIrl's Bitty Baby.

  2. What a cute idea! I think having the baby give her the gift would be special!

  3. We gave my daughter Grace a charm bracelet with her first charm that said "big sister." We told her it was from her baby brother, but Grace was 3 and said "But how did he go shopping?" :) She loves it and we will add more charms for her for other special occasions.

  4. I actually enjoyed reading through this posting.Many thanks.
