Gift Ideas For A New Mom

Do you know a new mom? Are you trying to decide what gift to get her this holiday season? Keep in mind that she has just taken on the most important job of her life and probably has everything for baby. Gifts to make the new mom feel special, appreciated, and even a little pampered are the most appropriate. After all, she deserves it! 

Here are some nifty ideas for the new Mom in your life, ranging from the most expensive to FREE:

Coffee, Coffee, Coffee! A coffee maker that will make her happy is the Special Edition Brewing System by Keurig. It gives you three brew size choices and always brews a perfect cup of coffee, tea, or hot cocoa. Mom can even hold the baby in one arm while she makes herself an afternoon pick-me-up with the other hand. It's that easy!

If you like the coffee maker idea, but your budget doesn't, then a gift card to her favorite coffee shop will be well used. A Drive-Thru coffee shop is an extra perk since mom won't have to get the baby out of the car.

Another inexpensive coffee related idea is to take a picture of the baby and print it on a coffee mug. I got a newborn picture of each of my girls on coffee mugs and love them! The printed mugs range in price from 11.99 to 24.99 at Walgreens. A commuter mug (with a secure lid) is handy for the working mom. You can pair the mug up with a bag of coffee and breakfast bars in a reusable basket for a cute and practical gift.

Keepsake Jewelry or Keychain: A locket with the baby's picture inside is sure to touch a new mom's heart. You can never get too much of the new love in your life! Red Envelope has pretty, moderately priced lockets of all types from $19.99 and up.

For something more unique, check out the portfolio of Jenn Fenton, a jewelry designer in Orlando, FL, for amazing custom pieces. She designs chic and modern jewelry with the baby's name or photo on a pendant. Jenn will gladly work with you to get the piece you desire in your price range or visit her "about" page for a list of online retailers. Now that's nifty!

Pampering: What new mom doesn't need a little pampering? The most thoughtful gifts in this category are gift certificates to her favorite nail or hair salon. A really big treat is a certificate for a massage. Having professional treatments like these is a luxury for a busy new mom. Select a service that that caters to your price point since she will appreciate any "me" time.

The Gift of Time: Another way to make a new mom feel loved is to take a little pressure off of her by offering your time. While it may only be a few hours for you, this can make her life less hectic and stressful.

There are so many things a new mom can use a bit of help with:

  • Babysitting while she is at the salon
  • Cooking a meal for the family
  • Running a bunch of errands
  • Stopping by with lunch one afternoon
  • Attaching a homemade gift certificate for FREE Babysitting to a pair of movie tickets for the new parents to enjoy.

Remember, taking a bit of the load off a new mom even for one day is a great gift!

Hope this gets your creative juices flowing to make a new mom feel special this holiday season. No doubt, the baby is the best gift she will ever receive; but when someone takes the time to make her feel appreciated as a mom, it will make her very happy. Enjoy giving!

@Ching Ya: So true, we often think about "baby" gifts, but forget the Mom. Staci did a good job in narrowing down a list of thoughtful gifts at different price points.

Yes, "time" is so important. I just commented on "Friendship Quote: A Sunny Reminder" about the importance and meaning of giving one's time. Offering it can help in ways we may never know.

Blessings to you, too, CY, thank you.

How thoughtful! You know many times we just thought about giving presents to the newborn. Fact is, we should appreciate what moms went through. 'Time' would be a great gift I"ll say. I wouldn't mind if some friends can offer me that when it's my turn. lol..

Blessing to you, Luci.
