One of my very best friends has asked me to be her daughter's Godmother. The baby is due tomorrow, so last week I sent off a "first days" kit to take into hospital with her. It contained:
A tiny 100% wool cardigan
Tiny bootees to keep her feet warm:
And my personal favourite, a classic bonnet to keep the baby's ears warm on her way home from hospital:
It also contained a tiny pijama:
A cuddly toy:
And a blanket:
I sent it all off in a small ribbon-tied suitcase, which my friend can later use to decorate the nursery or to keep teh baby's soft toys in, her socks, etc.
