Ok, back on track……i found it useful in the beginning to log breast feeding times and duration so I had a record for myself and future check ups – so a lovely little spotty notebook goes into the hamper.
I didn’t actually have the next item but wished I had as they are so adorable – Milestone Cards! These are large playing cards that have things such as ‘I sat up for the first time today’ and ‘I slept through the next for the first time’ on them so you can take a pick of your little one holding them (or laid upon them depending on age!) for lovely memories. I got the Peter Rabbit ones, but other styles are available and also ones for during pregnancy and also for twins.
Back to another not essential but super cute purchase – that beauitul fluffy lop-earred bunny rabbit! I hope my Nephew loves him, because I did and nearly didn’t put him in!
And finally something for Mummy – a gorgeous mug from Joules for the much needed coffee to start the day. If you have to drink decaf, it may as well be in the prettiest mug possible!
I chose to place everything in a lovely wicker basket as I thought this would be useful to keep and use after the baby arrives and it really suits my Sis-in Laws style, but obviously you could choose any style you wish. I also Wrapped the whole lot on clear celophane with a big bow on but forgot to photograph it before keaving for the baby shower! Doh!
Anyway, hopefully that gives you some inspriation for any up -coming baby showers you may be attending. My Sis-in-Law was really touched by the thoughtfulness of the gift and I’m sure your recipient will feel the same and appreciate the effort. As always, I was running late when putting this gift together so didn’t order anything online (apart from the stretchy sling) and got it together in a day. So even if you feel like youve left it too late, trust me – theres still time!!!
