20+ Amazing Gifts for New Moms That They’ll Love & Use Every Day
Motherhood is exhausting and chaotic, especially for new moms. Sleepless nights, re-establishing a routine, and adjusting to new responsibilities can all be exhausting.
Gifting is a personal and special experience. So, going the extra mile for the baby and the new mom means ensuring she is supported and looked after. We have curated a list of gifts you can give her to make her feel special.
1. Comfortable Footwear
Comfortable footwear is essential. New moms are always on the go, constantly thinking about the baby. And she can feel even more comfortable with a comfy set of slippers or crocs.
A good night’s sleep is crucial, and she might not be getting much as a new mom. So, it should be restful when she gets some time to sleep. Pillows are such a great way to relax the body and the mind. A great pillow should be an instant comforter, as if you were sleeping on a cloud. You can go a step ahead and gift her a pillow that relieves neck pain.
3. Baby Carrier
The new mom is constantly working, and running errands, while the baby needs her care and attention. This is why a baby carrier is a truly fantastic product. This will ensure that her hands remain free while she juggles other essentials for the baby. The newborn also feels close to the mother. It is also excellent when there is no one to watch the baby. These are pouches that use shoulder straps and are worn in front like a mini backpack. It is made of soft materials, so she doesn’t have to worry about the baby or her feeling uncomfortable.
4. Baby Swaddle Blanket
You can also gift her a swaddle blanket, which serves various purposes, such as a play mat, multi-use cover, or burp mat. It is thin and blank to make the baby feel safe and secure, resembling the womb. The baby swaddle will comfortably tuck the baby into a sound sleep, and the mom gets some extra time to do the things she wants to.
5. Baby Memory Book
In the age of smartphones, Facebook, and Instagram, it is too easy to get carried away with posting pictures of the new baby. A baby memory book is a little traditional for keeping track of milestones. But a memory book will ensure that handwritten notes keep the most critical moments alive. And what’s more, the baby and the mother might love to read these memories years later.
A new mom only gets to do a few things and will also have little time to get everything ready. Moreover, she will dread anything uncomfortable. To make her feel special, you can gift her a cozy set that she can put on and be easy on her postpartum scars. And it’s breastfeeding-friendly, too.
7. Tote Bag for Diapers
A tote is the one gift that a mom will love. She will need it if she travels for diapers, baby essentials, spare outfits, and snacks. A diaper bag fits all these criteria. It will have pockets and spaces to keep the necessities nicely organized.
She’s tired and needs some care, too. A perfect skincare gift is a scrub, bath salts, or skincare set. A gentle scrub will soothe and exfoliate away the skin’s stress. And bath salts will provide a very relaxing bathing experience, calming the body and the mind. You can gift her under-eye creams and body oils too.
9. Newborn Essentials
You can save her the trip to the store and gift her a pack of new essentials. It will include baby body wash, oil, and powder. The new mom will thank you for this.
Keep those memories safe. Some moments are significant, and they deserve their own space. So a family photo, a newborn’s footprints, or a photo from a favorite moment can also be stored and framed to be cherished forever.
11. Coffee Mugs
From early morning to late at night, coffee is a cure-all. And who is it better for than the new mom? However, caffeine should be eliminated since the baby depends on her, so gift her a caffeine-free coffee and a coffee mug.
