(don’t get the connection to Scandinavia though, as Finland is not a part of the region….)

I like the idea of saving the box so in later years you can tell your child that it’s what you brought them home from the store in. Or decorating it with stickers like an old-style steamer trunk to suggest they’d travelled far to reach you!

As an alternative to the “maternity package” expectant mother can choose a sum of 140 EUR, which the government pays directly to the expectant mother tax free. Some mothers choose money instead of the package because they already happen to have everything, or they feel, that the goods in the package are not to their taste. This year the box has a design of a “family tree” on it, so you can fill in the blank spaces, and perhaps save it as a keepsake. In addition to clothing the package also includes a couple of rattles, a book, or two, baby hygiene package with scissors, water thermometer, towels, wash clothes, etc., bra pads and condoms.

How fun would that be to get your big box of goodies in the mail one day!?? Such cute stuff, and I love that they get cloth diapers and even condoms! Plus the box is a mini bassinett? Adorable.

(Or so some Finnish friends told me.)

It would also be nice to make a box like this yourself – and give it as a shower gift. The baby pajamas and clothes look so warm and cozy!
