pregnancy gifting diy

first off, i should start with, i am not pregnant. i didn't want to give off the wrong impression to anyone reading this thinking it was me hinting at something. but, T's sister kim, is, and we are so excited for her since we just found out she is having a baby girl!! and while this gift can be given in the first trimester, i felt it would be more fun to personalize it once we knew the sex of the baby.
preparing for a new little one can be so exciting, as well as nerve-racking. lots to bring in and change around to make it just right. however, this can mean that the pregnant momma puts her own needs to the side and forgets to treat herself. so, i thought this care package would be the perfect boost to make kim feel loved, comforted, and just a bit spoiled. she is after all going through quite the transformation, so she deserves something just for her. upon delivering it, i received the greatest reaction i could've hoped for, tears and all. since it meant so much to her, i thought it would be great to share for any of you out there wanting to shower your loved ones who are expecting, a little extra love...just for them.


here's what i included:
  • a congrats card (color-coordinated according to gender) - for sweet notes and to share excitement
  • pink (or blue) nail polish - to pretty up those amazing looking nails
  • thick, extra soft socks with aloe - to soothe her tired feet after a long day
  • burt's bees foot cream - to further treat those toes to extra love and ease the swelling
  • burt's bees mama bee vitamin e oil - to help nourish the skin and help healing
  • burt's bees mama bee belly butter - for preventing stretch marks
  • great with child by beth fennelly - to empower her, comfort her, and give advice from one mother to another. i figured this would be helpful since a lot of expecting books can overwhelm, or cause panic with too much information. you are a momma warrior and should feel nothing less than :)

here's to hoping whomever you gift this to loves it just as much as my future sil (sis-in-law) did!
