gifts ideas for the new mama

Shop

I don’t know about you guys but I feel like EVERYONE I know right now is pregnant haha either with their first or second. So today I wanted to round up some really amazing gift ideas for the friend / sister / daughter in your life who is expecting, or who just had a baby! These gifts would be great whether she’s having her first baby or if this is baby #4!

The gifts below are all things I either had and LOVED when I had a new baby or things I wished I’d had!

you can click any product in the collage below to shop!

This necklace comes in a yellow or rose gold option and it's only $55! I've seen lots of necklaces like this that are over $100 so this price point is amazing. I think any mom would love this sweet necklace! When I first had Shiloh I wanted ALL the 'mama' things!

These pajamas are such a staple for me. They are under $50, come in tons of colors, and they are really great for nursing! I love the loose relaxed fit of them and they're also SO soft and breathable!

I have this robe and literally wear it every single day in the fall and winter. It is even comfier than it looks and I have this new camel color on my wishlist! A comfy + quality robe is definitely a mom-life essential and this one would make such a great gift for under $100!

If you are a mom (no matter if you have 1 kid of 5 lol) you know the under eye dark circles are REAL in those first few months of having a baby! These eye masks will help mom's eyes depuff and brighten! This is such a sweet gift to help mama take care of herself and also help with those dark circles!

New mom life pretty much equals cold coffee aaalll the time haha. you make your coffee and then get pre-occupies with baby and forget about it. This mug will keep your coffee hot for hours and having a lid is also a must so you don't spill while you're carrying 5 things at once!

shop now 

 

Whether you are breastfeeding or not, staying hydrated as a mom with a baby is TOUGH. This is a great gift to help mama stay hydrated because you can fill this up and carry it around with you all day. It holds 32oz of water and keeps your water cold all day!

This blanket honestly makes for a great gift for ANYONE on your list. It is so luxuriously soft and perfect for all the newborn snuggles on the couch or in bed!

shop now 

 

Baseball caps are super helpful when hair washing isn't an option! I love this denim one paired with black tights and a t-shirt!

shop now 

 

Not a day goes by when I'm not wearing one of these amazon claws! So helpful for putting all your hair up and getting it out of the way (or hiding dirty hair) while looking cute all at the same time!

shop now 

 

These slippers are SO cozy, they will last for years, and definitely a new mom essential since she will probably be spending a lot of time at home! I wore these nearly every single day the first 6 months of Shiloh's life haha (including to the mailbox!)

shop now 

 

My sister-in-law gave me this journal when Shiloh was little and I thought it was such a thoughtful gift! You write one line a day (and each line is it's own year) so you can look back and see ~~oh my goodness on oct 2018 shiloh said mama!~~ and compare it to what she is doing now. It's really sweet and would be a great gift!

shop now 

 

one of my all time favorite dry shampoos! I had so many weeks with a newborn where hair-washing just wasn't an option...and this dry shampoo helped me hair stay looking fresh! It eliminates the oil and odor from your hair, adds some volume and leaves your hair feeling really clean!

shop now 

 

These are probably my #1 gift recommendation for anyone who is pregnant or who just had a baby. I wore these almost every single day in my post partum days and had them in at least 5 colors. They are stretchy and comfy but look put together all at the same time. They kind of expand with your changing body so no need to go up a size!

shop now

This crossbody bag (or fanny pack) looks really chic and also allows mom to be hands free while on the go! I always carry this bag when I'm going to the park with Shiloh (or doing anything with her, really) because it allows you to be hands free but still look chic all at the same time!

shop now 

 

I thought this sweatshirt would be so cute with leggings for a cozy loungewear look! Really sweet / easy gift for any mom in your life!

shop now 

 

You guys already know my obsession with this backpack! I LOVE it for mom life - it looks chic / athletic while still being super practical. There are so many compartments and it holds SO much! Probably my favorite backpack of all time and so perfect for mom life!

shop now 

 

The vuori joggers make such a great gift because they can be athletic OR cozy. You can wear them around the house or for grocery store runs or going for walks. These make a great gift because she will LIVE in and get so much use out of these!

shop now 

 

This candle smells SO amazing and just adds a cozy + luxury element to your home! Also perfect for a bubble night bath kind of night!

shop now 

 

These bath bombs take your bath to the next level. They're so moisturizing for your skin, smell amazing, and only $16 which is a great stocking stuffer price point!
