Hi friends - it's was beautiful and sunny today and I am feeling hopeful about so many things, the vaccine, the weather, upcoming events that will actually take place this year. I booked tickets today for the Huntsman World Games in Utah for October. That is hope! I'm planning things and that makes me happy!
On my calendar are weddings, baby showers and little munchkin birthday parties. If you are anything like me, it may have been awhile since you were a new mom, or a newlywed....or even went anywhere!
Also if you are like me you just might occasionally stress over getting the right gift. I think I inherited that trait from my mom.
Well not to worry because I got you. I actually went to the source and asked. Just for you I consulted with moms and new brides for their top gifts. I'm starting with Baby Shower Gifts and then it will be on to Bridal Shower Gifts.
I'll stick with my strengths of doing the decor, theme, food and favors! I'll be doing some food and decor for my niece's shower this month and the Welcome Bags for the wedding this summer, I'll share details on the blog.
The list below includes hygiene products, luxury gifts, safety related items, basic necessities, clothing, supplements, sleep support, and mom support.
So here they are, tried and true from some pretty special moms I know.
