When I gave birth a couple of years ago we were inundated with beautiful and amazing gifts for our new daughter. We were touched by people's generosity and thoughtfulness.
And then one friend in particular surprised me with a box of loveliness just for me! I loved it, and who wouldn't...there were lotions and potions, wine, nail polish, bath bombs and other sweet little luxuries. Since then it is something I have tried to do for friends when they've had their little ones, even if it's only been a couple of bottles of nail varnishes (and the 60 second quick dry stuff has been a revelation at this time in my life!).
It's also a nice little reminder that just because you've had a baby doesn't mean that you shouldn't make time for yourself and the things you enjoy. This is one that I recently gave a friend - little bits from Boots and a pretty box from Paperchase. I love a good box!
