Whether its Mother’s Day, her birthday, anniversary, a holiday or just because, it’s time to start mulling over the perfect present for those new moms. To make the process a cinch, we did the legwork for you…
Check out our 9 best gifts for new moms.
A stylish diaper bag
No new mom should have to forgo style for utility (ick). Since she carries that good ol’ diaper bag just about everywhere, help her trade up for one that feels like an extension of her outfit.
A nursing pillow
You can’t put a price on comfort, right? Get the new mom in your life a nursing pillow with all the goods. The Boppy Original Nursing Pillow supports your newborn through their entire first year with propping, tummy time, sitting or just discovering little fingers and toes. Designed for your baby’s supervised, awake time.
A travel bag
Let’s face it: when you do get a chance to get away, you don’t want to be searching for the right “go bag”. Any of these Weekender or Travel bundles will work and a you’ll look like a fashionista!
A timeless necklace
No woman will ever turn down a gorgeous piece of jewelry! Whether she’s a first-time mom or you’re wrapping it up on behalf of her kiddos, a sparkly keepsake necklace is a great addition to her collection. A timeless tag in gold or sterling silver will go with anything in her closet, so it’s a fail-safe option.
Books will never go out of style, and usually tug at the heartstrings — especially when it’s one mom can write herself. Help get her started with an awesome hand-me-down memory book for a new baby, or pick one up that’s dedicated to those precious parental life lessons. Basically, you’re helping her nail a special regift down the road.
A glider or ottoman
Since she’s basically soothing her new baby 24/7 in those initial weeks and months, help a brand-new mom take a load off with a glider or ottoman for the nursery. Choose one with adequate cushion, preferably in a neutral to match any decor. It’s the perfect place for moms to preserve manpower… and it looks pretty slick to boot.
Nursing comes with its own set of highs and lows. One low is the complicated clothing situation — but you can turn that clothing debacle around with some cute new nursing essentials. A soft bra that’s a breeze to unhook is a total necessity, along with a cozy hoodie for cold weather that easily opens when it’s time to breastfeed.
Sure, a spa package is a wonderful gift… but sometimes a quick, at-home pick-me-up is the better solution for a new mom. Whether you opt for a luxe new eye cream to tackle dark circles and puffiness, a soothing moisturizer for tired toes, or a full facial set, there’s a million different pampering options she’ll love and appreciate, yet probably wouldn’t buy for herself.
Digital picture frame
A nice picture frame is always a gifting standard, but a digital picture frame is infinitely cooler. Like a frame and a photo album rolled into one and packaged up for the 21st-century customer, mom can re-watch all those scrolling memories while she’s catering to her new little one. Aww.
