Hi, i want to bring my friend a care basket when i visit her in the hospital when she goes into labor. I was hoping the bees could give me some ideas! I was thinking bottled water, chapstick, comfy slippers.. Any other ideas will be appreciated! Thanks!

Good travel sized shampoo conditioner and body was (the stuff they have at the hospital SUCKS!) and some snacks such as ghramcrackers and other easy snacks so she can eat if hungry at night!apple cider and some plastic tosting glasses to celebrate the baby with a toast would be fun!

how long is she going to be in the hospital for because it might me wiser to deliver it to her home as she will be leaving with bags, flowers and baby so might already have her hands full getting everything to and from the car
my friend already had a bag packed with slippers, gown, pjs and a few comforts (personal hygiene products and light comfort foods that didnt upset her breast milk) but she did say the best gift was us preparing meals and putting them in her freezer so she didnt have to think about cooking for the first 2 weeks

@Glow girl: How about an edible arrangement? I love them, they are so cute and practical.

Both good ideas! When my cousin gave birth for some reason she was like obsessed with the edible arrangements and basically insisted that her SO bring her one, lol. I know she also really appreciated the robe she got so that she had something other than a hospital gown to wear.

a nice robe is always great! wearing a hospital gown around is not appealing and if she has to have an emergenct c-section (speaking from experiance) you have to walk around the halls every couple hours and its nice to feel like your a$$ isnt hanging out. also if she has long hair a scrunchie and/or headband is very nice!
some things that i really wish i had at the hospital (and eventally sent Fiance to get) aside from the above things were chapstick and fuzzy slipperlike flipflops. i had a hell of a time with the slipper socks they gave me because i would constantly go from hot to cold and i hated having to wear them in bed.(you can pick up the flip flops at walmart and the go by the normal S,M,L, XL type thing)
hope that helps!
