My first ask mefi question!
Someone I know will shortly give birth to her seventh baby. I'm completely stumped as to what to buy considering the following details:
The family is religious Christian.
They are essentially homesteaders. They butcher their own meat, have goats for milk, and chickens for eggs.
They homeschool their children and are part of what seems a very tight knit and supportive community.
Lots of hand-me-downs!
They are wary of chemicals and pesticides and seem very committed to organic/non-processed foods and products.
Maybe stating the obvious, but the mother is the busiest woman I've ever met. She exudes a calm warmth and gives excellent hugs. Long flowing skirts and tie-dye.
A bit of extra detail from me:
I don't want to spend more than $50.
I prefer something made with fair labor practice.
I often buy baby gifts such as locally made blankets, Waldorf baby dolls, fancy soaps or good food for the parents, maybe a little something for a sibling.
The family is so right wing, they almost meet my family pretty far on the left, if that makes sense. We really appreciate each other.
I'd love to buy a gift for the mother or baby, but something to share would be okay too. I'm open to ideas!
