I’ve put together the list of the best ideas for new mom gifts for both moms to be and new moms. This’s the list of the things she actually wants! New moms are busy, exhausted and have little time for themselves. A perfect gift for her is something that’ll 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!

4. Ergonomic Baby Carrier, by Ergo Baby
If you know a new mom that doesn’t have this baby carrier yet in her life then she needs one, STAT! It’s 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’s worth it. This was my number one mom must have. I had this exact one and it’s 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’ll match every outfit because she’ll wear it all the time and everywhere, literally.

11. Mom’s Memory Journal, by Chronicles Books LLC
My last pick is this sweet memory book. This book captures the first five years of your baby’s life. It’s 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 wouldn’t appreciate this one. Check out below where to find them.
