This fun and festive idea comes from Andrea, who created these adorable Hospital Survival Kits for her relatives who were becoming parents for the first time. 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!
Inexpensive Gift Baskets
Pick up some inexpensive baskets or buckets from the dollar store and fill them with some newborn-stage essentials. We’re talking items that will help mom and dad through labor, delivery, and those precious first few days and weeks with a newborn.
