'Welcome Little One' Gifts
Two lovely friends from my Mother's group have recently welcomed new additions to their families, one a bouncing boy and the other a sweet baby girl, siblings for their older brother and sister respectively. Being second babies (and the same gender as the older siblings) nothing much in the way of toys or clothes were needed, but it's still nice to give a small gift as a celebration of new life.
The Mama (and older child) is often forgotten with the announcement of the new arrival, so I decided to make a gift 'hamper' with the Mums in mind.
This awesome card (how utterly fabulous is it!), some chocolates to celebrate, some natural skincare, a small toy to ensure the big brother/sister doesn't feel left out (and keep them somewhat occupied during those long newborn feeds), a small gift for baby (not pictured was a small book collection) and a sweet "Brothers" print made up the 'Welcome to the World' baby gift.
They were received with much thanks and while they were distracted with the contents, I managed to steal a few newborn cuddles.
What is your favourite item to gift to new Mums?
