It is so stressful trying to prepare for a new baby, mentally, emotionally, physically. And with so much going on in those last couple of weeks, the excitement, the nervousness, the preparation, it is very easy for the mama to be to start putting herself on the backburner. Countdown to Mama boxes are the perfect gift for expecting moms to celebrate themselves and the new baby that is growing inside. The boxes come already packaged in a decorative canvas bag, so no gift wrapping needed! There are 14 little drawers to open in the box, a countdown for the 14 days or 14 weeks until baby arrives! The box is designed that it can even be gifted to a mom after she has had her little bundle of joy because each drawer contains an item that is something an expecting or new mama needs, will enjoy, or just celebrates the amazing transition to motherhood! The Countdown to Mama box is only $185, but includes over $249 worth of goodies.
Some of the surprises inside include: a glass water bottle with silicone sleeve, “Mama and Me” matching swaddle/baby cap and mom headband (so soft and picture ready), a Luxe striped 5-in-1 nursing cover, an organic cotton swaddle blanket, a rose gold Mama necklace, and an oatmeal/milk/honey bath bomb. The items for baby are gender neutral, so it is an easy gift for moms expecting either a boy or a girl. I really appreciated the adorable zipper pouch that says “You Got This Mama” and the Sicilian Orange toiletry set. I won’t spoil all the gifts in the box, but even as a second time mom, I found all of them special and useful. Each of the 14 gifts were also individually wrapped in tissue paper or their own mini drawstring bag. It is obvious that extra thought and care was put into really thinking about what would mean the most for moms and their precious new babe as the box was put together. The quality of the gifts is beyond comparison and are luxurious. There are two gifts that are designed for breastfeeding moms (“No Pump” breast pump and washable nursing pads), but for moms who will not be nursing, the company offers to replace them with an extra swaddle and bath bomb if you contact them upon ordering it.
I also loved that the box itself can be a keepsake box! The drawers can be repurposed and filled with little mementos and special items and memories as baby grows for easy and cute storage. The mini drawstring bags from the various gifts are also perfect for tucking special items in before going in a drawer. This is a gift that, besides the incredible quality of all the items, keeps giving by being so useful over and over again, even as the baby gets older. This is such a thoughtful and unique gift for baby showers, holidays, or anytime for an expecting or new mom. They can be shipped in 5-8 business days, and because the box comes in a canvas bag and then bubble wrapped in a shipping box, it is ready to go directly to the mama!
