Gift Ideas for New Moms
Finding the perfect gift for moms can sometimes be frustrating. We've compiled a wish list that our new mom customers tell us they love best - and not just during the holidays!
Getting a new pair of cozy pajamas for anyone is great gesture. Besides, you can never have too many pairs of pajamas. You can find inexpensive sets at the big retailers and big box stores. For the holidays, red flannel sets are always a great decision, as they are very versatile and easy to get for someone who's clothing taste you might not be familiar with.
If you want to splurge, we absolutely LOVE Kyte Baby adult pjs. They call them "Jogger Sets" because of the signature cuff at the ankles. Kyte Baby is known for their baby soft bamboo footies and onesies, plus their sleep bags, and now they offer the same fabric for moms and dads. At $75 a pair, it's a good price for a luxury sleep set!
When you are a new mom, your skin goes on a wild ride. Trying out new skin care can be tough, and usually you have to deal with a lot of trial and error. If you know of a really good brand of moisturizers, serums, oils, or face masks, you can try getting smaller sized portions to give. This way, they can try it out in smaller samples and try it out to see if it works for their skin!
Who doesn't love a nice pair of soft slippers? Just like pajamas, slippers can be found anywhere for super inexpensive! Plus, slippers are great for a new mom who is at home for most of the day. They provide a soft cushioning for those long days and nights, and they give your feet a nice break after having so much pressure on them during their pregnancy!
When you are a mother of a new baby, you may be more dressed in your pajamas than actual clothes, and that's ok! During the holiday season, you may spend chilly nights rocking your baby to sleep. So, the perfect item for this is a soft robe and/or blanket. No matter how much you spend on either item, they are destined to last for years to come. Liz and Roo makes several different faux fur blankets - adult sized - that you can find here.
Manicure and Pedicure Coupons
Treating yourself to some self care when you are a new mom may seem like an idea that is far along the horizon. Time for self care? What a joke! However, getting a coupon for someone to get a free mani pedi is an amazing gift. For a mom to take a few hours out of her day to get her hands and feet pampered is a luxury and highly deserved.
You may start your day with a clean house, but when you have a baby in the house (and any other children), the house seems to miraculously destroy itself by noon. Getting a new mom a free cleaning service is something that will take off so much relief. This is crucial around the holidays, because there can be wrapping paper and ribbons littered around their house in places they didn't even know it could get there!
A nice, soothing, candle is the perfect gift for someone if you aren't entirely sure what they may want. Similar to the other items on this list, you can find nice candles from anywhere for various prices. Any candle will do the job, whether it's a gingerbread smelling candle or fresh linen.
A subtle nightlight will get any new mom through the long nights that she will spend, rocking her baby back to sleep. Try looking for nightlights that have lighting settings, that way if the light is too bright for a baby's eyes or the mom eyes, then it can be adjusted. This will also avoid a brighter atmosphere that may make it harder to get a baby to sleep.
