Here are the items and notes I included on the back of the gift tags:
Relaxing tea: because being a mommy is hard work
Heating pad: for after labor contractions and clogged milk ducts (yeeouch!)
Jewelry: just in case you have a "I don't feel pretty after having a baby" moment like me.
Polish: because you can touch your toes again!
Cocoa butter: because some things just never go back...
Stationary: for all those thank you notes!
If you have a friend or relative expecting a baby any time soon, this is a fun way to spoil the mother. Of course you could include anything that you personally found to be helpful or a treat that made you happy after having a baby. I'm dying to know what would you include? I plan to do this for some friends having babies in the fall and am interested in other ideas.
Oh and I made the heating pad by hand. Come back for a quick and easy tutorial and more of my Bumps and Babies Series!
