Then Comes Baby ... Mom to be Kit

After the wedding comes baby, in my case baby #1 came home from the honeymoon with us.  My dear friend is having baby #2 and it was her birthday so I did a duel gift.  I thought it would be fun to do a Mom to be Kit for her.   I looked on pinterest and didn't find exactly I wanted so I went and picked up what I always wanted when I was pregnant.  I think it turned out pretty darn cute.  Next time I may add some fun ribbon and a baby themed item glued onto the front of the basket but overall I was really happy with it.


What you Need:
A Good Book (who doesn't want to put their feet up and read)
Sprite (for upset tummy)
Pretzels (always good to snack on)
Red Vines (always a good snack too)
Saltines (Helps with tummy)
Gum (Mint helps with tummy)
Chicken Noodle Soup (Reminds me of childhood)
Tea
Chocolate (who doesn't need chocolate)
Plastic Cup with Straw
Crystal Light or Store Version
Basket

I won a giveaway a while back so I have a ton of bins on hand which helps since you all know my love of gifts in a bin.  I put some tissue paper in the bottom to make it easy to prop up everything.  I then placed the items in the bin and arranged it to make it look the best.  I really like how it turned out and my friend really enjoyed it.


Give it a whirl I'm sure you'd make any mom to be very happy!
