LoveMyWifeFilter: My wife and I are about to have our first child and I want to get her something special. What are your ideas?

Our first child is expected to arrive on December 15th. There is a good chance that the baby will be born close to Christmas. I don’t want this gift to be a Christmas gift or necessarily baby related. I really want to get her something special to show her how much I love her and how proud I am of how she handled this pregnancy (we have a tough pregnancy history).
I am looking for any ideas regardless of whether they are expensive or cheap, hand made or bought. I thought about jewelry with the birthstones of the three of us or an album of pictures of her through out the pregnancy (I took one picture of her belly each week). Although these are good ideas, I don’t think they really capture what I am looking for.
I would love to hear what others have done for their partners in the same situation or what you would like if you knew a gift was coming your way.
