Someone wants to buy us a gift for our baby around $100. This is my 4th kid so I have all the baby gear already. I would love clothes, but they don't want to buy something like that.
I'm very practical, so not looking for ideas like pictures or decor.
Any ideas?

A new diaper bag is always nice!

You said you have all baby gear's, but some things are extra like a good baby swing ( rocks sideways and very softly, my newborn loves it sleeps in it etc...)
What about a glider for you to feed baby?
A bunting for the carriage ( Like a 7 am style... great and super practical)
Nice knitted blanket?
Newborn photography?
Gloves for carriage?
If it's a girl: baby bracelet or earrings?

A carriage bunting if you don't have.

Think outside the box for something that makes it easier for you to balance the extra child:
A toy that entertains older kids for hours like magnatiles.
A spare freezer so you can cook in bulk.
Cleaning help for a certain amount of time.

Great ideas, but realize that $100 is very generous but will only get you so far. It will not buy a glider or freezer and will pay for 1 day of a cleaning lady.

These are great ideas, but I have basically every single thing mentioned here. And I'm really bad about buying "new" things just for the newness of it if I already have it (I.e. my diaper bag is over 12 yrs old and still works fine for me)
Also they are being specific in wanting it to be for the baby, not for me or the other kids Sad
I do love the jewelry idea as that is something I don't have, so I think I'm going to look into that more.

Can you ask for a gift card to a baby store that carries both toys and clothing? Then you could just use it to buy clothing.

Gift card? To either a baby store or maybe a massage/facial for yourself?

It's so interesting how I don't use many of those.

I welcome new clothes always for baby, and also anything personal: initials, pic...
