Simple & Practical Gift Ideas for New Moms!
A new baby is such a fun occasion to celebrate! These simple & cheap Hospital Survival Kits for New Parents or Newborn Survival Kits are great gift options to take to a baby shower because they contain some forgotten necessities for the parents.
But, what about a gift AFTER the baby is born?
Moms and babies get showered with love and gifts before delivery, but after that sweet bundle of joy has arrived is when the real help is needed!
There is nothing more precious than a sweet newborn.
No time for healthy food prep!
But there is also little time to prepare food and healthy food at that. I loved getting meals dropped off and even some freezer meals when I had a newborn, but getting fresh fruit was even better.
Getting fresh fruit that was ready to quickly grab without washing and chopping is the best.
My co-workers sent me an Edible Arrangements fruit bouquet which I lived off for a week. That’s a great gift, but if you are looking for a cheaper option, put together a Healthy Snack Survival Kit.
