Great gift ideas for intended parents

A surrogate is already giving the intended parents everything they’ve ever dreamed of… a baby. However, some surrogates want to give a little something extra to the couple they have helped transform into parents. Here are three great ideas.

1. A photo book. Take weekly pictures of your growing baby bump. Easy websites like Shutterfly can take these photos and bind them into a hard-cover book. Presenting the intended parents with the book at the time of delivery, or even after, would be a great way for the parents to have a keepsake of your part in the baby’s life.

2. A baby journal. During your pregnancy, write down on a weekly basis how you’re feeling. Write down what cravings you’re having, how the baby is moving, even if you’re feeling horrible or uncomfortable. Giving the intended parents a documentation of the pregnancy is a great way for them to stay involved in the pregnancy phase.

3. A photography coupon. Presenting the intended parents with a gift card for a photography session when the baby comes is always welcomed! Parents want to document those precious, fleeting newborn intricacies, and there’s no better way than by having a professional doing the work.

Have more suggestions? What would you present to intended parents?

OMG, if it is fake which i dont think it is, im going with the floating dress thing then what does it say about us? If she has had to fake her baby bump and isnt pgnnraet then why has she had to do it? Maybe because society might give her a hard time for not carrying her baby by herself because we will all say she must not want to lose her figure, maybe she has had problems carrying children and doesnt want to have to explain to the world? Who cares if its real or not the baby will have two hard working and loving parents who love each other, the baby will be a very luck child and who can say thats wrong? Not me and not you!
