New Mom Gift Basket

My really good friend just had a baby on Friday! I am pretty miffed that I have a cold and couldn't go visit over the weekend. I am hoping I am back to 100% by this weekend so that I can meet her new baby boy.

I wanted to put together a small basket for her and this is what I came up with:

  1. Homemade Oatmeal Cookies - Oatmeal is supposed to help with breast milk production. And any excuse to eat yummy cookies!
  2. Pajama pants - After I had Ben, I bought a pair from Old Navy and basically lived in them. I heart them.
  3. Exfoliating Scrub - Did anyone else reading this get those terrible bumps on your arms during or after pregnancy? I did, and my friend has complained about them. I just happened to have a salt exfoliating scrub lying around after I had Ben and found that using it and then moisturizing afterwards helped.
  4. Reusable Water Bottle - Gotta keep hydrated!
This is her second baby. Her little girl is 2 1/2 years old. I wish I could put some rest in the basket for her!


  1. Thanks for the new-mom gift basket idea! I'm putting together a basket for my sister-in-law now. (Can you believe Stephen is going to have a baby?!?)

    1. Oh my gosh! Are you sure Stephen isn't five? :) Certainly no older than like 10.

      That's great! Congrats to them!
