If your wife, sister, or friend has welcomed a new bundle of joy into her life, there are many changes happening that she may not be totally prepared for (but then again, who is?). The addition of a newborn means she may be trading in her high heels for house slippers, raucous nights out with friends for evenings in with the new baby, and long, luxurious baths for a quick hop in the shower. That’s just the way the cookie crumbles. But as the new mom in your life figures it all out, there are gifts that will make her life a little bit better.
Here are seven of the most thoughtful gifts you can give to your favorite mama:
1. Baby Sling by Wildbird
This versatile sling can carry newborns up to 35-pound toddlers. It’s fully adjustable and fits most mothers and children. Constructed of a single layer of 100% linen chambray fabric, this sling is extremely easy to clean and looks great with anything. As a bonus, it was hand sewn in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Why a baby sling?
- Easy access to your baby
- Cheaper than a stroller
- Skin-to-skin contact
- Fitness – you can get an extra workout hauling your baby around!
2. Meal Subscription by Sakara
As a new mom, your friend might not have as much time to prepare healthy meals. So, help her out with a healthy meal subscription service like Sakara. This meal service is different from others because each meal is organic and ready-to-eat. There are breakfast, lunch, and dinner options along with detoxifying teas to aid in digestion.
Sakara may help new mothers increase their energy, boost their immune system, improve their skin tone and texture, and increase focus. Each meal is plant-based, organic, dairy-free, gluten-free, non-GMO, and without refined sugar.
3. Mom t-shirts
Personalized gifting is all the rage, and rightly so. You can imprint a piece of their life, a loved one’s name, a phrase, or anything that suits their persona. The mom t-shirts could be the best gift as you can make it special by customizing them – it could be the baby’s name, her style of parenting, say bossy or chilled out, or anything motivational. It will be comfy and precious with obviously a personal touch!
4. Loafer Flats for Women by Rothy’s
Moms don’t always have time to shop for themselves because they’re too busy feeding and caring for their new bundle of joy. Plus, their bodies may have changed post-partum and they’re not sure what fits. Help a mama out with some loafer flats for women. These particular kicks offer sustainable qualities – they’re made from recycled water bottles and recyclable when they reach the end of their life cycle. And while they’re functional flats, they don’t skimp on style!
5. Jade Facial Roller by Herbivore
Encourage Mom to take some time out for herself, even if it’s just five minutes in the morning. A jade facial roller can help increase skin elasticity, decrease facial puffiness, and help serums and moisturizers absorb better.
Benefits of a jade roller:
- Sculpt your facial features
- Encourage drainage
- Improve absorption of serums and lotions
6. Luxe Cuddle Blanket by Olive & Cocoa
A newborn means a lot of upcoming cuddle time. And cuddle time means you need cozy blankets to wrap up with. Try one of these Luxe Cuddle Blankets which are made from thick faux fur. Each blanket is available in adorable baby pink or pewter. These luxurious blankets arrive in a handmade wooden crate and ribbon so the receiver is sure to feel extra special.
7. 12 Nights of Wine by Vinebox
The best part of having a baby is cherishing all of those special moments with the new addition. But mamas still like to party and now she can drink again! Ease her into the world of fine wines again with an adorable win advent calendar. She will enjoy world-class wines from across Italy, France, Spain and more!
Plus, you’ll have the option to order the full-size bottle version of the wines you love.
New moms have a lot on their plate. Especially if this is her first time as a mom, she’s in for a whirlwind of changes. Help her out with a nice gift that not only improves her time with her baby but encourages her to take a little time out for herself during the day as well. And if you don’t want to give her a physical gift, simply write her a card offering to babysit or cook dinner for the night. Sometimes, a little help is all she needs to feel on top of the world again.
