Over the last 5 plus years it feels like every month a new friend is annoucing her pregnancy. Which means I have gotten very good at gift giving especially for baby showers and new moms. The way a gift is packaged is just as important the gift itself since it sets the tone for the gift.
One of my girlfriends just had her 2nd baby girl. So when I was working on this post I reached out to her for ideas. And her ideas were amazing and I think something that every mom would love. It is all about experiences like:
- Day at the Spa for manicure, pedicure or massage.
- House Keeper to help clean the house and catch up with laundry.
And don't forget about babysitting for their older kids if they are still pregnant or for their newborn if it is a post birth gift. I was able to quickly make this gift certificate on the computer so that I could have them tied in to the rest of the gift.
