Introducing the practical gifts for a new mom: practical items that will help her stay organized and cost effective. From diaper bags to storage solutions, these gifts will make her life easier and help her breeze through those first few months post-baby. Whatever the occasion, these gifts are sure to make a mom happy!
I always hate it when other bloggers feel the need to make excuses for their absence. Not because I don't love them and miss their lovely voices out here in internetland, but because I get it. Life gets in the way sometimes and that's ok. At least this is what I've been telling myself this last month (or two).
GIFTS FOR A NEW MOM
I've been a bit preoccupied growing a little human and raising a little toddler one while I'm at it. To say I'm tired is a bit of an understatement. I've been trying to take my own advice and let the blog take a backseat lately and it's been kinda nice. Inspiration will come again and, heck, I'm pretty sure I'm going to be tired for at least the next 18 years so I might as well roll with it 😉
With that said, I'm grateful I'm not the only one going through these changes of motherhood. I've been so blessed to have numerous friends become mamas lately and I couldn't be happier. It's a challenging time and I know moms and dads can use all the help they can get.
It's fun to gift cute baby stuff but I've been erring on the side of practical these days and made up a few of these 'new mama care packages'. Here's a peek inside and some inspiration for the next time you're looking for some gift ideas:
1) Not pictured but first and foremost, dinner: Either make something yourself or pick up a frozen something. I brought along a ready to cook frozen meal from 'Simply Supper'. Always, always appreciated.
2) A little something for baby: This can be something really small like a book or even diapers. I'd purchased these minimocs for this little babe and couldn't wait to gift them.
3) snacks: preferably something that can be eaten one handed - granola bars, snap pea crisps, mini muffins, veggies, cut up fruit...
4) treats: Something for the sweet tooth is a must in my books. These 'crybaby' cookies are go-to family staple (see recipe here). Also welcomed: chocolate, candy, wine...
5) Something cozy and cute for mama: Because you are not feeling your greatest in post-partum recovery mode, I like to throw in a cute pair of new pyjama pants. Just make sure they're nice and stretchy!!
Wrap it up in a cute reusable tote and you're set! I already have a few of these things set for myself when this baby comes (hopefully any day now!!) What's your go-to new mama gift?
Hope you have a great weekend, happy Friday!

Frequently Asked Questions
What gifts can be given to a new mom?
When it comes to giving gifts for a new mom, there are a few key things to consider. Firstly, maternity clothes are always a popular choice as they make it easy for the mom-to-be to feel comfortable and stylish even when she's not feeling her best. Next on the list is something that can be used frequently such as baby gear or nursery items. Finally, remember that every new mom deserves some quality time and affection so give her a gift of your time by cooking dinner with her or taking care of some other household task she may need help with.
What new moms need most?
When it comes to new moms, there is no one-size-fits-all answer. However, some of the key things that new moms need most include time and space to themselves, support from family and friends, a good system for tracking their baby's progress (including photos), and quality sleep. All of these factors are crucial in helping new mothers adjust to the demands of being a mom. Additionally, many new mothers find it helpful to have physical activities that they can do with their baby such as walking or cycling. And finally, breastfeeding should not be seen as an inconvenience; instead it should be celebrated as one of the best gifts you could give your child.
Why do new moms need support?
Because newlyweds foster a more loving and healthy atmosphere for their child when they feel supported.
