Baby Box!

3What do new moms want? FOOD. And not to have to think about what to eat and how to hunt/gather/cook/clean it up. So many amazing friends brought us dinner via a Mealtrain that one of my best friend’s organized after Press was born, and Marc and I could not have been hungrier or happier every night when a smiling face walked through the door with a delicious dinner. It’s such a great idea because 1) you get fed and 2) you get to see people besides your immediate family and favorite television stars. But then they leave. And then it’s baby blur fest nighttime, and then morning and you’re alone and starving. One of my friends offered to bring us a second dinner after the meal train was over, and I looked at her and straight up said, “You know what? That would be great, but what I really want is BREAKFAST.” She is such a good cook and so creative and brought over an amazing box of breakfast goodies. It was the PERFECT meal gift, and so I mixed it up a bit and have been making these baby boxes for a few months now (especially if there isn’t a Mealtrain to get involved in). Sometimes I miss a new mommy baby box (sorry!) because… 8 month old. And wedding season. But mostly 8 month old. So blame Press. I dare you πŸ™‚ ANYWAY, I digress. I finally got around to photographing one of these baby boxes, and voila! 7 2 1 4 5 8

 

This box is for a boy, so I picked this turquoise chevron box. To be honest, girl boxes are wayyyy more fun to pick out, but I thought this one was pretty damn cute.
Before I had a baby, I got my friends post-baby gifts like Veuve and US Weekly. Bitch, PLEASE. Ain’t no new mom got time for that! Here is my much improved list (I buy local products as much as possible, so sub in your own brands!)

Box: Paper Source (shoebox size) || Wolfermann Blueberry English Muffins || Bonne Maman Strawberry Jam || Hippie Chow Cafe Blend Granola || Shatto Butter || Chobani Strawberry Banana Yogurt || Simply Orange Juice (because these bottles are just too cute) || Dunkin Donuts Hazelnut Coffee (a Radasky fave)
