Time for a Care Package List

This is an extra post, just in case that someone in similar shoes feels lead to complete a package for another family. To get some ideas on what to include, I asked the experts at mommiesofmiracles.com, parents that have been there and done that, and the response was overwhelming. I pray that we are able to get more packages like this in the near future, and we are humbled and honored that our first package found the perfect family for it. 

This is a suggestion on which items you can include, if God leads you to do the same thing. Please don't feel like you have to add them all; this is just a guide. 

Items Included:

Blanket for parents
Swaddle blanket for baby
Planner with pockets for business cards
Notebook
Pens
Chocolates
Book "The places you'll go"
Man's toiletries: shaving cream, razor, toothbrush, deodorant
Hand sanitizer
Cozy Socks
Snacks
Hand Lotion
Lip Balm
Relaxing Body Wash for mom
Starbucks Gift Card
Nearby Restaurants Gift Card
List of community and online resources
Personalized Letter
Basket
Bow
Gift Basket Wrap Paper or Bag

Other items that were suggested by Amanda, who is a dear friend and also as she puts it an earthly momma to a heavenly baby (see her story here):

bible, journal, disposable camera, matching baby and mom bracelet, hand and feet molds, small unisex crochet blanket and hat.
