New Mom Gift Guide (Get Her What She Really Wants)

I have put together the list of the best gift ideas for moms to be and new moms. This is the list of the things she actually wants! She doesn’t want her ninth pair of slippers. *eh-hem* (sorry you had to learn this way, honey.) New moms are busy, exhausted and have little time for themselves. A perfect gift for her is something that will make her life easier, put a smile on her face or is just pretty (we like pretty stuff). But most importantly a thoughtful gift is a great way to show her how much you appreciate her and all she does! If you are looking for a Christmas present for a new mom or a mom to be then you have come to the right place. Read on to discover the best gifts for new moms including the cutest diaper bags, nursery decorations, shoes, jewelry, books and so much more! I have selected gift ideas ranging from $6 to $178 so you are sure to find one in your price range! *your welcome*

1 | Diaper Bag Backpack

This gift is perfect for the mom on the go…which is every mom ever. What I love about this- It is so cute but also functional. It has insulated front pockets to keep milk cold, with three sleeves perfect for baby bottles. One of my favorite features is the diaper wipes dispenser pocket on the side, brilliant! It comes in 14 trendy colors, I want them all!

2 |  Custom Date Bar Necklace

Women love jewelry if you didn’t know. A custom necklace is extra special because it shows her that you put some thought into it. For this date bar necklace, you can choose the most important dates in her life and they will be displayed in this pretty modern bar style. If you have a special place you can also put coordinates. How cute is that? Speaking from experience, a mom would love one with her marriage date and baby birth dates. Available in gold and silver.

3 |  Nike Women’s Air Max


I have never met a mom that would not love a new pair of kicks. New moms want to be comfortable but still have style that is why this is the perfect gift. They come in 28 colors! I love the light blue, pink and grey. Now you just need to sneak in her closet and find her shoes size and Surprise! You may achieve best gift giver status. *fist pump*

4 | Ergonomic Baby Carrier

If you know a new mom that does not have this baby carrier yet in her life then she needs one, STAT! It is one of those products that she doesn’t know she needs until she gets it and then can’t live without it. It may be a little more expensive than some of the other ones out there, but it is worth it. This was my number one mom must have. I had this exact one and it is so comfortable I carried around my son until he was 2…no joke...don’t judge. It comes in 13 colors. I suggest going neutral, so dad can wear it too, plus it will match every outfit because she will wear it all the time and everywhere, literally.


5 | Insulated Liquid Containers

Did I mention that us moms like pretty things? I love these corksicles because they are pretty and functional. They come in a bunch of colors, so you are sure to find her favorite. I love the new Aurora color, which is the multicolored one. The all have lids that you can slide to open. I take my corksicle wine glass with me to friends’ houses when we have drinks…Ok maybe that’s weird but, I get complements on mine all the time. They are tripled insulated, so they keep your liquid hot or cold. There is a corksicle for every woman whether her vice is coffee, wine or if she has no vices, (good for her) go with the water bottle. Either way just pick a color she loves, and it will put a smile on her face.

6 | Cute Succulents

I had to do two options for these ones. The real ones and the fake ones, for those busy moms or that don’t have a green thumb. *hand up* (I fall in that category, so I don’t judge) These are a great gift idea because plants instantly freshen up any space. Plants go with all home décor styles, so you can’t go wrong there. Plus, succulents are so pretty, remember what I said about pretty things.

7 |  Cozy Blanket

We spend a lot of time on the couch feeding and taking care of our babies. This time of year, it is getting a little chilly and that is why we would love a soft cozy blanket. We can get cozy with our baby and the soft cozy blanket, heaven for a mom. This one is cute too, win win. *crowd cheers*

8 | Mom Ring

What I love about this is well first it is only $6 and it dainty and cute. This ring would be a perfect gift from a son or daughter that wants to buy mommy something. This would also make a great stocking stuffer, or you buy it and say it’s from baby. I mean how sweet is that?


9 | Mom’s Memory Journal

My last pick is this sweet memory book. This book captures the first five years of your baby’s life. It is a daily journal where you write a few lines a day about your thoughts, memories and your baby’s growth and progress. You just write about a line every day, so it works great for the busy mom…which is every new mom ever. Then the next year you write on that same day, so you can compare memories for that date over five years. It is a great idea to help capture those moments that go so fast. I can’t think of a new mom that would not appreciate this one.

I hope that you take my advice and get one of these gifts for the new mom in your life. Trust me she is going through a lot right now and a thoughtful gift is a great way to show her how much you appreciate her! Well that and tell her all the time, Obvi. I know most of my readers are moms, so I would love your feedback on my recommendations. What do you love and is there anything that I missed? Let me know, maybe I’ll add to my list for next time. If you are a mom to be and want these gifts in your life, then share it with someone just to give them a subtle hint. 😉
