For the not so crafty gifters

Me, I consider myself a light crafter. I like to do it, but I can not come up with something and finish it quickly and still have it look good. When it comes to gift giving, I prefer to give the store bought kind. There is nothing wrong with that! When it comes to baby showers I like to give the unexpected gifts. Usually in themes. When I do give clothes though I give the larger sizes, like 12 months and up. I find that most gifted clothes are the smaller sizes. Anyways, on to my theme gift kits.

Solid Food Feeding Kit
  • Rice Cereal
  • Spoons
  • Bibs
Breast Feeding Kit
  • My favorite Breast Pads (I liked the Lansonal brand)
  • Lansonal Breast Cream
  • A good book or magazine to read while feeding
  • A nursing pillow
  • Burp cloths
Bottle Feeding Kit
  • A Can of Formula (they can always exchange it if it is one they find irritates the baby.)
  • My favorite bottles and nipples. ( I like the Gerber naturals)
  • Burp Cloths
