Give A Baby GIft Filled WIth Love And A #SecondHug

We are so excited - waiting, waiting, ugh, WAITING for our little boy baby to arrive. Yes, my greatgrandboy is on his way, at his own sweet time. "Due" 4 days ago but all is well. He's just not in a hurry!  His mommy is a veteran at this. They have three lovely little girls. But this is the first boy and everyone is filled with anticipation awaiting his arrival. 

His parents, of course, will be his first hug. The voices that he has heard for months will now have faces to go with them. And each little girl, his big sisters, will have their turn holding their new little brother. But after that, how about a #SecondHug? He needs the softest, comfiest diapers to keep him clean and dry. Huggies Little Snugglers sizes N-2 have tiny, soft pillows as a cushiony Gentle Absorb* liner that will protect his skin from the mess. 

As I was thinking about a way to bless them, I considered the very active lifestyle this family leads. Like many young families, they are always on the go. So, I decided to make my granddaugter-in-law (Oh, forget the "in-law" part. She is "granddaughter" to me.) a mommy grab-n-go collection of drawstring bags filled with baby items like Huggies Little Snuggler diapers that she will need in a pinch.  

I filled them with a pacifier, bib, receiving blanket, baby wipes*, little trash bags and his "Second Hug" - Huggies Little Snugglers diapers. I put four diapers in each bag - three bags in all. Of course, babies need a teddy bear and the book? Well, he will be an early reader I am sure :) I am giving the whole box of diapers to them for lots of refills for those grab n go bags.

*Huggies Natural Care Wipes are a perfect choice for baby wipes. They are Huggies simplest formula ever providing a gentle clean with Triple Clean layers to handle any mess.

I bought the diapers at Sam's Club. They have a great supply of all sizes and it is so easy to shop there. The Huggies Little Snugglers diapers were on the very same aisle as the Huggies Natural Care Wipes, right across from each other. How easy is that! Shopping at Sam's is a breeze.

Baby gift baskets can come in lots of forms and styles. I love wicker so this white basket was perfect. It has handles, too, making it easy to move from place to place. I bought some new blue and white pillow cases to make the drawstring bags - three of them.

The top border of the pillow case was a natural channel for the ribbon, thus simplifying the sewing project. After they were made, I simply had to fill them with goodies! I put diapers, baby wipes, pacifier, bib, receiving blanket and small trash bag in each one. Of course, the basket also has a teddy bear stuffed toy and a little kid story book. What else would you put in there?

One of the many reasons that I have a Sam's Club membership is that, in addition to regularly low prices, they often have special deals and offers to lower the prices even more.  Like right now! DEAL: Anyone purchasing two Huggies Little Snugglers Diapers and/or two Huggies Natural Care Wipes can get a $10 e-gift card to Sam's! What a deal. (Offer ends July 31, 2016)
