snack box for new mamas

Exactly a year ago I was in the midst of post partum chaos and my friend delivered a few groceries to my doorstep including a carton of ice cream. My husband brought it up to the bed with a spoon and I remember saying out loud, “Ice cream has never tasted so good.” And I meant it. After that moment I vowed I would help every new mama I knew in some small way and so I created this snack box that is super easy to put together. 


  • food packaging (clear bags, plastic boxes and containers)
  • labels (downloads available here and here)
  • snacks
  • carrying box (IKEA has some great ones right now)

Print the labels onto adhesive paper then simply repackage favorite snacks and stick on labels.

Package them all together in a large box and deliver to the doorstep of the new parents. They might be so appreciative they’ll let you hold their little bundle.

    This is such a cute idea! PS- I totally bought a couple of those boxes from Ikea. Not for this, but I fell in love with the patterns on them.
