A Big Sister Basket : Gift Ideas for Older Siblings Once Baby Arrives

shortly after finding out we were expecting, i began to think of ways to make this time special for my daughter.  she is going to become a big sister!  and with that, comes a lot of excitement and a bit of change.  my husband and i knew from day one that we wanted to have our children close together.  all this to say, our children are going to be very close in age and, with that, they will never know life without the other one.  something we really wanted.  even though our daughter will be really young when the baby arrives, it is important to realize that change is change, no matter the age.  and amongst all the change, i want her to feel special and so loved.  in an effort to do that, one thing we will be doing is having a big sister basket just for her that the baby is going to bring her when we come home from the hospital.

i teamed up with a variety of amazing shops that sell a variety of children items to put together a big sister basket that my daughter will absolutely adore.  i made sure to not only fill it with some of her favorite things, but to also fill it with some new toys (ahem, distractions) that will keep her busy while mama is breastfeeding around the clock.  i just love the idea that she has a little basket of things that are new and special for her and only her.  she got a quick peek at the basket today, as i was photographing it.  but being that she is 17 months, she is like a little goldfish and will quickly forget about it and be surprised once again once the baby brings it to her in a few short months.  for now, it is tucked away awaiting labor day!

below you will find a sneak peek at her big sister basket, filled with all of our favorite things sent to us by some of our favorite shops that i collaborated with!  at the very bottom of this post, you will find a source list of every shop that contributed to make this basket possible.  be sure to go check out their beautiful shops!
