What You Should Buy For A New Mom – A Postnatal Care Package Unboxing

postnatal care package unboxing

When it comes to buying a gift for a new mom, it can be hard to know exactly what they would want. I tend to always go for the good old gift card standby because I can’t think of anything else.

Recently I was contacted by Tenth Moon Mothercare, located in Toronto, Canada. They asked if they could send me their Mama and Baby Postnatal Care Package for me to do what I wanted with it. So, I decided to do an unboxing.

Wow! I was blown away by the ideas included in this package and in hindsight, I wish I had pampered myself a little more after having my little ones.

Head to tenthmoonmothercare.com if you live in Toronto or surrounding areas to place your order. Otherwise these are great ideas for you to put together yourself. Check it out!

A Baby Shower and Christmas Decorating

It seems like it has been forever!  I have had a busy but exciting past few weeks full of festivities, design projects and the excitement of decorating for a Canadian Christmas!

I was thrilled to host a baby shower for my sister-in-law who is expecting my niece in January.  I chose a variety of pops colours to decorate my home, using onesies hanging on a line and buttons instead of confetti to decorate.  A book for guests to add their advice for the new parents and a calendar for guests to add their birthday guesses were great interactive and personal touches that my sister-in-law and brother were able to take with them.
