Gift her a sentimental and personalized jewelry locket

If there's one thing I've learned about new moms, it's that their new child is literally everything to them.

Everything they think about, the most they've loved, and the happiest a little creature has ever made them.

So honor this love by getting them personalized jewelry like this locket with a baby-photo, initials, and/or birthday on it.

I'm personally a huge fan of this locket with a beautiful design that can hold a photo of the family or baby.


Alexa, play "relaxing sleepy baby music"

You don't realize how convenient it is to be able to talk to a smart assistant until you're sitting there with a baby, unable to get up, unable to reach your phone, and unable to think with more than 6 of your last remaining brain cells that are awake.

If she doesn't have one already, get her an Echo with Alexa to help out during the parenting journey!


Get a super cute personalized baby onesie with their initials

Make sure she gets time for himself and with her partner by covering the babysitter

Another tricky part of parenthood is the lack of alone-time for parents. Either to themselves or together for a datenight.

Make sure she still has time for herself, or some quality time with her partner by either:

  • Getting them a babysitter "voucher" where they just tell you when they want to head out, and you figure out and pay for their babysitter
  • You do the babysitting yourself (assuming the parents trust you enough with their kid!)

This is an excellent gift if you already know a few sitters that you trust will do a good job.

Make sure she gets to treat herself with a well-deserved spa day

Trust me, your recipient is most definitely exhausted from all the work and stress of being a new parent.

Make sure she gets a well-deserved day to herself at the spa, where she can recuperate properly from the stress of new parenthood.

A facial, warm bath and a good massage does wonders for the stress and psyche!

Get the greatest gift any parent could ever want: diapers.

Did you know you can actually gift a diaper subscription to parents?

Save your recipient one of the biggest pains in the butt of having a new child by taking care of the diaper restock for her!

It's really easy to do, you simply head over to Incredibundles and set it up whenever you want. They will also send you a physical package that represents the gift so you have something to hand to them.

Both she and her partner is going to love this one, I promise you.

Make sure her hobbies and interests are still being encouraged and supported with some hobby supplies

Another commonly missed part about parenthood is the lack of time for other activities outside of your baby.

In a lot of cases, it's not even just a lack of free time for the hobbies - but the basic encouragement to remember that she is in fact hr own person in addition to the whole mom-thing.

Fuel her hobby by getting her a gift tailored to whatever her hobby is! Lucky for you, I've already written a bunch of gifting guides for all seorts of hobbies for women.
