Hi.

I'm Sarah & welcome to my blog, where I share things I love and easy projects you can accomplish with a DIY-loving dog and toddler in tow.

Putting Together a New Mom Gift Basket

Putting Together a New Mom Gift Basket

A redux of a new mom gift basket I put together for my friend. So much has happened since then! That baby is now an active pre-schooler, she has a baby sister, and I've had my own little girl! I have to say the nicest thing a couple of our friends did was to bring takeout and come visit for lunch. It was nice to get some food, to sit down for a meal, and have a clear end to the visit! Oh and dry shampoo. That stuff is LIFE you guys!


On Friday, I got to go visit my friend and her new baby. I was taught to always bring food, but I wanted to bring her something just for her too. I quickly poked around on Pinterest and found a list at Happy Home Fairy that seemed like it had some good suggestions. I jotted down some suggestions and we hit Target to pick up some supplies.

I got a selection of snacks & some tea. I figured if Mom doesn't want some of it, Dad would willingly eat the rest. I got (1) Lentil Snaps, (2) Fruit strips, (3) Tictacs, (4) Icebreakers, (5) Swedish Fish / Starburst, (6) Camomile Tea, (7) Granola bars.  (P.S. That's an affiliate link)

I also got some personal care items; (1) Face wipes, (2) Lotion, (3) Dry shampoo, (4) Lip balm, (5) Purell. Oh and I can't show up with nothing for baby, so we picked up this adorable hat and mitten set (similar). (P.S. Those are affiliate links.)
