12 gifts for new moms
Motherhood is such a journey, and new mamas seriously deserve it all. You don’t know what you don’t know, and no matter how many books you read, it’s impossible to be prepared for what happens after babe arrives. From navigating all the changes that come with bringing a new life into the world (hellllloo team no sleep) to trying to create a new routine when routines feel impossible, those first few months can be SO hectic.
If there’s a new mom in your life and you want to treat her to something special but aren’t quite sure what to even get a person whose entire life (for the time being at least) now revolves around another tinier human, you’re not alone. Finding the perfect gift can be a challenge, but we’ve got ya covered.
A super cute nursing lounge set she can wear from couch to grocery store? Postpartum wellness that’ll help her start to feel human again? These are just a few things on the list, because every new mama deserves a little something special (especially if that mama is YOU).
for the mama who deserves it all
New moms are dealing with a lot, but new-new moms (as in, you’re planning your hospital gift bag for her) are going through so much physically and emotionally. In addition to all the amazing newborn snuggles, she’s just trying to get through the day with her body still recovering and operating on little-to-no sleep. Trust us, she’ll thank you for getting her any of these gifts to help with the new changes.
for the mama who just welcomed babe
Motherhood is not for the faint of heart and neither is breastfeeding. If this is the route your girl is taking, she needs a ‘lil extra TLC for her milk-makers more than anyone.
for the breastfeeding mama
As she transforms into the mom of this new bundle of joy, chances are she’s going to be doing some major mama-baby bonding in the form of newborn cuddles and day after day on the couch. Give her an extra cozy hug in the form of nursing-approved, C-section recovery friendly loungewear.
For the lounge-lovin' mama
The transition to motherhood is a big one and new moms honestly don’t get enough credit. However you spin it, bringing a babe into the world is a pretty life-altering experience packed with surprises around every corner. Take the guesswork out of the new mom’s gift (or wondering if she’ll *actually* like whatever you’re getting her). Whether she’s JUST made it home from the hospital, or has passed those first 40 days, she’s guaranteed to love one of these thoughtful gifts.
Want to make your gift a little extra special? Consider adding a hand-written note to show her you’re here for her as she navigates this new chapter. Or, bundle one or two with a few expecting mama faves and create a ‘lil gift basket for a pregnant friend. Nothing says “you’ve got this” more.
