My friend has just gone into labour and I'm thinking what to get her for a present. Any ideas?

If your friend has all the stuff she needs for the baby, then go ahead and do something that is for her alone.  As previous posts have said, all the presents tend to be oriented towards the baby.  

One thing that would be a good idea is to give her a "gift certificate" for time when you'll take care of the baby so she can rest.

I always get a present just for the mommy. Everyone buys baby gifts from clothes to toys to blankets etc. I like to buy something special just for the mom. It might be a robe or slippers for the hospital or a special treat that they like (chocolate or whatever their favorite snack is) Best wishes to your friend and her new little one!
