What's the Best Hospital Bag?

A large capacity canvas weekender Tote in graphite with embroidered shoulder straps, paired with a Pack-it-Up Pouch packing case in stone canvas.
Last year, we often heard from gift-givers, baby shower planners or moms-to-be that our Day & Away Tote was purchased with a Pack-it-Up Pouch to make a perfect hospital bag set. So true! These two items make a great bundled gift for a baby shower!
  • The Day & Away Tote's extra-roomy capacity lets you pack more than you'll probably need for the hospital. It's not fussy with too many compartments - just a few well-placed pockets and a wide open space, with a reinforced bottom panel and zip-top closure to keep things secure. The embroidered straps add just enough style to make this Tote unique and fun, beyond its' practicality.
  • The Pack-it-Up Pouch's dual compartment design makes an ideal packing case. The front clearview zip pocket is perfect for lotions, creams, wipes, pads ... all the essentials. Plus, the back zipper pocket is actually a wet-bag compartment! Damp nursing bra? Wet onsie? No worries ... you can keep them separated from everything else.
What we love most about a Hospital Bag set for a shower gift are the little add-ons that experienced mamas often include for a personal touch. Gift-givers tell us they add a few things they really needed or wanted after delivery (... things nobody told them to think about!...) and we LOVE some of their ideas: fuzzy socks, a favorite chocolate treat, one fun magazine, a sleep mask, lip balm, scented hand lotion, a neck pillow for dad.
Heading to the hospital to welcome a new baby is such a whirlwind. Having a super-functional (but oh-so-cute) bag set packed and ready to go is one thing off your mind. The best part ... after the hospital, this bundle becomes the perfect packing combo for a day trip or weekend getaway, keeping it useful for years to come!
