I’ve been meaning to post this and share it with all you lovelies out there but sometimes my recipes are just so gosh darn good that I have to share them with you ASAP! So anyone out there that may have family or friends expecting? Well if so this one is for you! I didn’t think of this in time because all my Momma friends all had #2 from Spring until Fall of this past year, so I only got to actually give this gift to one new lucky Momma. Everyone always buys a little gift for the new bundle of joy, a new outfit, a plush toy or a nice soft new blanket. Well I like to spoil the Momma, why? Well to be frank she just spit the kid out now didn’t she! So I thought of this idea when thinking of becoming a Momma again this past summer. What are some of the things we NEED?? Without a doubt NEED the first few weeks after having a newborn? Whether it’s the first time around or not, there are things we NEED to survive those first few weeks! Here are some of the things I thought of while going through the store one day:
Nail Polish Remover
Nail File & Pedicure essentials
Make Up Remover Wipes
WINE, WINE and more WINE
Gift Card for Coffee
I bought one of those cute little make up bags shoved in as much as I could dropped it into a gift bag with a bottle of wine and enclosed this note:
Momma’s Survival Kit:
Hair Elastics: For those days when the hair just has to go up! (like everyday)
Lip Balm: To keep those lips baby smooth!
Makeup Remover Cloths: For those nights when you forget to take your makeup off, keep them by your bedside!
New Compact Mirror: For those days when you have to put your makeup on in the car or on the go!
Body Lotion: For revitalizing that Momma skin!
Nail Polish Remover: For those nights when you can’t get a pedicure, why not give yourself one!
Nail Polish: For those nights: For those nights when you just want to feel a little girly and not so much a Momma!
Chocolate: Well we all need chocolate!
Protein Bars: For the days when need a little boost.
Dunkin Donuts Gift Certificate: For those early mornings when the babe just needs to ride in the car!
Wine: Well no need for an explanation on that one!
Make one of these for the women in your life who has just had a new baby and trust me they will love you weeks down the road when they realize how much these little things will come in handy!!
