Guest Blog Post: Top 10 Gift Ideas for New Moms by Gifted Idea
A new mom in your life is always a reason to celebrate with her! But, she’s bound to already have gotten enough gifts for the baby, so this list is NOT about baby items. This list is about the mom! Our friends over at Gifted Idea put together a great list of gift ideas for the new mom herself!
There’s a reason the UGG brand is everywhere. It’s because they’re super stylish and extra comfortable. For a new mom who is going to be stuck at home, these comfy slippers will go a long way toward keeping her feet looking cute and keeping them warm.
Pampering can mean more than putting a dry Pampers on for the 11th time before lunch. It can also mean taking time to pamper yourself. The instances may be fewer and further between, but a new mom will appreciate having a nice basket like this around when the opportunity presents itself.
Adult coloring books are fun. It’s an especially good way to pass time when a new mom’s cognitive abilities are running low due to only getting about 3 hours of sleep. So get her a coloring book that has a little bit of snark for all the stuff new moms are learning to put up with.
The time will come when a parent can hardly open a cupboard without a little one saying “What are you having? Can I have a bite?” Since that time is still in the distant future for a new mom, she’ll appreciate getting to enjoy these munchies all to herself.
Of course, any book with such a title is going to have a comedic tone and be very tongue-in-cheek at times. And while this book delivers on that, it also backs it up with some really serious professionally-backed advice on how to keep your relationship strong. A great read for new and old moms alike!
These are wine labels that you can put on an ordinary bottle of wine before gifting it to a new mom (who likely hasn’t had a good glass of wine in many many months). They’re to help celebrate the good things to come (like the first “Date Night” back out on the town with dad) and help through the bad things (like the first time the toddler has a public meltdown). Either way, a glass of wine is definitely in order!
The cliché goes “they grow up so fast”. Any veteran parent will tell you this could not be more true. Help a new mom slow time down and capture the important moments with this adorable journal.
New moms are some of the world’s most extensive photographers (and with good reason!). Between sharing photos on Facebook and messaging them to Grandma across the country, a new mom will be very attached to her phone. But, the thing about babies is they don’t care; they will spill, they will vomit, they will drop with no regard for the fragility of the phone. So a sturdy case to keep the phone safe is an absolute must.
There’s no shame in a new mom staying in her pajamas all day. What would be a shame is if she didn’t at least have an awesome set of extra comfy jammies to spend the day in.
A new mom will quickly learn that a baby will grab whatever she can get her hands on. This certainly includes ripping off necklaces during feeding times (babies are stronger than you might guess). So if she’s going to be grabbing and trying to chew on a necklace, she might as well wear one that’s made for it (and is stylish too!)
One-sies are cute, stuffed animals are adorable, and diaper genies are life savers. But sometimes you just need a new mom gift that is for the new mom herself.
