A Gift Package for a New Mom.

May 16th, 2014

I would say that I am sorry that I haven’t posted on the blog in a while but I’m not. Not one bit. I’ve been hanging with my little guy! Both of my guys! And when Xander has been snoozing {in one of his mandatory in the crib // bassinet //  not my arms snoozes} I have been writing thank you notes. Lots of them! Our friends & family have been overwhelmingly wonderful to us. And the big scare I gave folks post partum, pre release back into the wild made people even more kind. If that is even possible. On top of that? Paul’s office sent out a birth announcement email. How do you thank people you haven’t met for a Tiffany & Co piggy bank? I mean, I’m queen of the thank-you notes {Paul is what I would call the opposite of the king of thank-you notes, but in all seriousness he does have an immensely thankful heart} but I still find the notes to folks I haven’t met a little tough. Whatever, I am grateful. In every sense of the word.


Fine! I just had to share one of the packages we {I} got in the mail.

In the midst of all of the hoopla new moms are still on the mend. And while they’re still getting it all back together {literally} they’re up in the middle of the night for hours on end, their boobs are growing to rival two ripe cantaloupes, and there is a … I’m not even going to talk about the other stuff. I received such a treat of a package for me! from a sweet friend here in NYC and couldn’t help but share the concept. I will, no doubt, be throwing together something similar for the next mom-to-be in my life.

I put together a visual for a bit of a guide and included links below:


1. People & In Style Magazines, I’m fairly confident you know where to purchase magazines …

Breast feeding takes a long time. Ellen is only on for an hour a day. {Yes, yes I am on Netflix.}

2. Kleenex Pocket Pack, Target {available at most drug stores}

Hormone saver.

3. Garnier Skin Renew Anti Dark Circle Eye Roller, Target {available at most drug stores}

I’m not entirely sure these need an explanation but it has to do with that whole “sleep” thing.

4.  glam it on, Essie Sleek Stick Nail Appliques

NYC manis have not been happening.These have saved the day!

5. Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate & Coconut Easter Eggs {Obviously for Easter time}, Amazon {available at most drug stores}

If these need an explanation you should probably be punched for being too dense. JUST KIDDING!!! But seriously. Who doesn’t need chocolate?

This was awesome to get in the mail as a new mom. Sustenance. And, kind of just a big mail hug.

Thank you, LJ!!
