put dinner on the table
Ah, the daily crisis... WHAT IS FOR DINNER??
Of all the gifts I received after having babes, the best ones were pre-made meals and snacks. The first few weeks are a blur and the months following had some really tough days were getting dinner on the table seemed like an enormous feat.
If you aren't much of a cook, check our some local businesses in your area that offer amazing premade meals! Our favourite is Farmhouse Catering located in Prince George. They always have a mouth watering dinner menu for order.
- Warm hearts and bellies with the ultimate thoughtful gift!
- Consider muffins from your local baker
- If you aren't much of a cook, look for local business that does meal deliveries
- Consider a gift card for her favourite restaurant
