Do you have someone in your life who is expecting during the holiday season?! Although their bundle of joy will be the best gift of all, here are some great ideas for what you can gift the new mom to be in your life!

One of the things I regret not doing from day one is writing in a journal. I started a few months later and tried to fill in details that I missed, but it was tough! If I had something like the Mom’s One Line a Day journal, or the Q&A a Day for Moms it would have been much easier. You are so busy as a new mom that writing in a journal seems like one more thing to do in a day, but with promts to guide you and only one or two short lines to write a day it couldn’t be easier. This would be such a great and thoughtful gift for any new mom.
I received this mug as a gift and I love it! There is a beautiful inscription on the back as well. It is perfect for a nice warm cup of tea, and it is a good enough size that I often put soup in it as well. (side note: they make a matching new dad mug as well!)
If you give a mug like the one above as a gift for the new mom in your life, you can pair it with this Organic Peaceful Mama Tea! I have used many of Earth Mama Organics products and they are wonderful. All new moms will be sleepless and anxious to say the least, and this tea will be a nice way to bring some warmth and comfort into those crazy first few weeks.
If you know the new mom on your list plans on breastfeeding you can get her this Breastfeeding Bundle from Earth Mama Organics. Breastfeeding may be natural, but it ain’t easy!! New moms can use all the help they can get. I wasn’t as prepared as I should have been, and these essentials would have made my life a lot easier!

Let’s face it. The last thing a new mom will have time to do is her hair. Just getting the time and energy to shower is hard enough. I found my hair ended up being up and out of the way most of the time because it was just what was easiest. Do the new mom on your list a favour and get her a headband! Something easy and comfy that will keep her unwashed hair out of her face! Trust me, she will thank you for it.
A new mom who isn’t showering much prooobbbably isn’t worried about what she is wearing. A nice cute comfy t-shirt for her to lounge in is a no brainer for a gift!
You can’t go wrong with a diaper bag. She will be using this all the time. This is the one I have and I love it! But there are sooo many cute and functional diaper bags these days. If the new mom on your list doesn’t already have one, consider it for a gift! I also wrote a post about how to pack the perfect diaper bag for a newborn. It comes with a free checklist you can print off and include in the diaper bag! 🙂
Finally, if you have a new mom on your list who loves to read, give her a copy of ‘How Not to Hate Your Husband After Kids.‘ I have no personally read it yet, but it is on my list! I have heard amazing reviews about this book.
Those are some of my top picks for gifts for the new mom in your life! What are some gifts you received as a new mom that you absolutely loved?!
