Baby showers always have such CUTE gifts and I'm starting to try to gift something unique, creative AND useful!
Quite a while ago, I stumbled across these fantastic Hospital Survival Kit (free) printables from My Own Road, and I couldn't wait to use them!
The original concept used the printables on a gift bag, but I decided to repurpose a small white square gift box for the occasion.
(+) Change for the parking meter
(+) Toothpaste & travel-sized toothbrush
(+) Hair elastics
(+) (not pictured) Gift card for the hospital coffee shop (because hospital food is not good)
Some of these things may seem like common-sense items for mom-to-be to pack in her hospital bag, but interestingly, I actually FORGOT my toothbrush during my baby's birth.
The whole box can just be added right to the hospital bag, and mom-to-be can be worry free for some of the essentials!
You could also create this as a gift for any friend or family member who will be staying in the hospital - putting your own spin on it and including some of their favourite things.
Thanks to My Own Road for creating such a great set of printables! Be sure to visit the blog to print your own!
