I can remember back to when my husband and I were brand new parents. We were excited, but so tired! Coffee was our friend as we got used to the lack of sleep. When you’re a new parent, the simplest tasks can be exhausting – so the more that is ready-to-go, the better! This breakfast basket, filled with coffee , pancakes, syrup and new mugs has everything they need for the perfect breakfast for two!
With my brother and sister in law expecting in about a month, I put together everything they’ll need to sneak in a sit-down breakfast.
The fun thing about this gift – you can go as big or as simple as you like. I chose to go more simple including pancake mix, syrup and my favorite McCafé coffee pods . Fill a basket and include a pretty tea-towel, tag and you’re done. It’s a thoughtful gift that they’ll love. And on that random morning that the baby sleeps just long enough, they can enjoy a breakfast on you.
The DIY mugs for the new parents read ‘Mom EST. 2015’ and ‘Dad EST. 2015.’ You can easily make these with permanent marker or permanent paint pens.
Quick Tutorial: DIY Permanent Marker Mugs
Wash mugs with warm soap & water. Dry completely.
Use a pencil to plan your writing and placement – so when you go to write in marker, you have a ‘guide.’ Be creative and have fun.
Finally, bake the mugs in oven at 350 degrees for about 20-30 minutes. Allow to cool.
Along with these mugs, the star of this basket is clearly the McCafé coffee pods. I chose this coffee because the smooth taste has become my go-to in the morning. It’s a premium, quality coffee that is harvested from the rich soils and mountainous regions of the foremost coffee-growing areas of the world – made with 100% Arabica beans. For me, it’s the perfect cup – and how I get my day started while checking email.
