Variable price
• Supermarket vouchers or prezzy cards - this is a great idea compared to buying nappies so mum doesn't end up with lots in sizes that never get used, plus it also helps to ease the financial burden of maternity leave
• Goodies for mama instead of baby like snacks for during/after birth, body wash, dressing gown, slippers etc. 
• Meals for the freezer that mum can easily take out and heat once baby is born - you could buy these pre-made or make them yourself to save money.
• A pregnancy massage voucher - price dependent on who is in your area
• A photo shoot for maternity photos or a newborn/family shoot - price dependent on who is in your area
• A voucher for mum to get her hair done  - price dependent on who is in your area
