Hospital Survival Kits | Gifts for New Moms and Dads


Need a baby shower gift idea? Put together these simple Hospital Survival Kits for new parents to be.  This fun gift idea will help make birth-day even more exciting!  


A Gift for Moms and Dads

Let’s be honest, having a baby for the first time can be a bit overwhelming, albeit exciting. Babies are usually showered with gifts before they are born, but why not give something to Mom and Dad to help them celebrate the exciting life event of becoming parents?

These gift baskets are full of essential supplies that both mom and dad will find helpful for the hospital stay. It’s our lucky day because she’s sharing her adorable printables with all of us!
