At the Princess Project we want new mothers to know that they are valued and special; that each is a unique individual in her own right, made and loved by her Father in heaven. To this end we distribute beautiful gift baskets to mums in our community. Although these contain a few goodies for the baby, mostly they contain little gifts for the mums, ranging from hand creams and lip glosses to scented candles and eye masks!
"Receiving my Princess Project new mum gift was like getting a hug in a bag!"

We hold regular working parties to put these boxes together and making them look really special (each item in the boxes is lovingly and individually wrapped). Dates of box-making sessions will be posted on our Latest News page and our Facebook page.
If you would like to donate items for the boxes, then please do drop them in to one of our collection points:
*Princess Project Gillingham Hub (Monday mornings) *Princess Project Park Wood Hub (Wednesdays) * Princess Project Maidstone town centre Hub, URC Hall, Maidstone (Fridays) * St Justus Church, Rochester * Pip and Jim's church, Walderslade * St Mary's Island Church * Woodlands Children and Families Hub, Gillingham
Toiletries, such as shower gel and body lotion
Candles/tea lights and individual glass tea light holders
Flannels and shower puffs
New (or nearly new) medium sized soft toys
Wrapping paper, tissue paper and ribbon in shades of purple/lilac
Please note that we want to bless the mums who receive these boxes, so we would kindly request that all donations are new, sealed (if toiletries) or with tags attached.
If you have recently had a baby and would like one of our baskets, or you know someone else who would, then drop into the office or contact us, and we will happily get one to you.
