I love my friends and I love when my friends have babies. Sadly, due to my schedule and a – never ever ever ending – upper respiratory infection, I have not been able to see the most beautiful baby boy that my dear friend had two months ago. I can not come into her home and cough all over her newborn, I just can’t.
But, because I love her and am so incredibly happy for her, I wanted to do something really special and show her that I am thinking of her, remember what it is like to have a newborn and two other kids, and remind her to take a little time to sit back and enjoy some time to herself too.
So I headed to Walmart with a vague idea of a relaxing hot tea basket. I love tea and drink it in the afternoons. I sit out on my back porch and watch the kids play and enjoy a cup every so often. And I love the variety and flavors of Bigelow Tea so I knew that is what I wanted to share with her. I wanted to give her a good variety of caffeinated and decaf teas to chose from! A super easy task with Bigelow Teas!
See my whole shop below:
I found some fantastic Blueberry Scones in the bakery section, some awesome tea cups in the kitchen section and even a bowl to put it all in! Trying to stay with the baby boy theme, I added some blue and green tissue paper to make it festive!
And then I took all of it, including some gifts I had been collecting for her and her beautiful family, to her door step. I am still pretty sick with this infection – and she was not ready for photos (we new moms understand that) so I left the gifts and called her to tell her to open her front door!
I stalked her from afar waving and tearing up that I can not give her a huge hug and see her new little sweet baby boy but thrilled that she got something I know she will LOVE! I can not wait to get the messages and calls as she sits and drinks a nice, hot, relaxing glass of Peach Bigelow Tea. No matter how hot it gets in Texas, a good cup of hot tea is always on the “spoil yourself” menu!

wow! What an awesome gift basket! That’s one lucky person!
That is so fantastic! I’m sure your friend is SO thankful for your gift! I hope you feel better soon!
