Big Sister Gift Bag

Our little Elia is about to take on a new role as "Big Sister" and we couldn't be more excited for her. Our son is due to make an appearance any day and we have been hyping the big event to her for months. At just 20 months we're positive that she has no idea what is about to happen but we're confident that she'll make him an awesome big sister.

I've known for a long time that I wanted to create something special for her to open at the hospital shortly after meeting her little brother for the first time. Even though we know that the true gift is the gift of a sibling it'll be fun to have something special for her that she'll be able to enjoy and hopefully it will keep her occupied during the long days at the hospital.

The first thing I knew that I wanted was a personalized tote bag that would hold her gift. I love that it can be reused and she can haul around her books and activities for years to come. I also wanted to include personalized t-shirts for both of them. Whenever I want anything personalized I contact my friend Jesi at The Polka Dot Lollipop. She is so talented and so reasonably priced. She made Elia's sweet dress for her Olivia themed 1st Birthday party. If you "Etsy," and if you don' should, head on over and favorite her shop so that you'll have it the next time you're looking for something special.

The "Little Mister" shirt has his name and initial too, and trust me, it's super cute--but we're keeping his name hush-hush!

We also included a couple of big sister books, a Melissa and Doug peg board activity, and a big sister hair bow.

Here are all the gifts, including the little guy's cute onesie, ready to be opened!

Stay tuned as our team grows! We can't wait to update you all with our big news.
