We’re going to be grandparents! And as you can see, it’s going to be a girl.
But my son and his wife live out of town. Both are working long and hard and didn’t see a need for a baby shower. Plus she’s working for the very male-dominated field of gaming and it isn’t likely they will throw a shower.
I begged my son to put together a list and he did. We got them exactly what they think they need. Don’t worry, when we visit I’ll go through everything with her mother and we’ll make sure it is truly complete. I copied the list with all my son’s comments for you to get the idea.
A stylish design to obscure the horror within
So I can strap her to me at the grocery store and everyone will go "awwww"
The perfect comfy pillow to trap a newborn
Like a baby rollercoaster, but more soothing
How could there be a better play area than this?
Chrisula and I put together this list for easier shopping and list creation. Copy and edit it for YOUR college-bound teenager. Remember you can use the printable list feature to check your total spend and stay on budget.
Send the comforts of home with them. Reuse some things you have and invest in their future with some of the luxuries from the Dorm Décor shopping list. Going off to college is an exciting and challenging time. Whether they’re starting their first year or starting at a new place, there are lots of things to gather. Give the safety of a cozy chair and pillows, so they can prop themselves up with a pillow and add life to their dwelling. Remind them to call home often and to make a positive impact on the people around them!!!
