Did you happen to see this post over on Odeedoh about Finland’s national gift to new moms? Can you imagine?
Hudson received all kinds of wonderful things celebrating his arrival: a ton of cute clothes, blankets knitted with love, and some toys that he is just now starting to notice. But there were also a few special gifts for me, and I couldn’t have been more grateful. Like the friend who showed up with cookies and sandwiches in the hospital, and who sent us a gift certificate for grocery delivery; or the one who helped us get our apartment professionally cleaned before Hudson arrived. And one girlfriend sent over a package with nipple salve for me and teething gel for Hudson–much appreciated so far!
What do you think are the best gifts for new parents? Do you have a gift you like to give?
