It's a boy!

My sister found out yesterday that she's having a boy. I'd like to send her some baby stuff and some boy-specific stuff, but I need the hive mind's help.

This is her first, so she doesn't have anything for the baby. I don't have children, so I'm at a complete loss as to what to get her. I already sent her some stuff she registered for (diaper bag, some sort of baby toy thing, a few other things) and some other stuff that I think she'll like (onesies, a little baby hat since he'd due in December, and a couple of other things). I also sent her a gift card.
All of this stuff is perfectly nice and all, but I'd like to get her more stuff. Moms and dads of MeFi, what did you need when you had your first baby? We live across the country from one another, so things like taking the baby for the night so she and her husband can go out aren't possible. I'm thinking more along the lines of, like, maybe a car seat and/or a crib and/or a stroller, plus some care-package stuff like a ton of diapers, but I don't know...I feel unsure.
One final note: I am not planning to get her a banjo, so non-banjo suggestions only, please!
