“When I first received the baby from the hospital, I didn’t have much. You sent me home with clothes, blankets and basic necessities I needed to get started. It really took a load off me from the beginning. Everyone at the office is super nice and made me feel very comfortable in a stressful situation.

A personalized gift bag filled with perfect gifts and a new book to make every child feel special on their 1st birthday until their 21st birthday. When available, we add in a Birthday in a Bag – birthday party kit complete with cake mix, frosting, candles, cake pan, streamers, and balloons.
