They’ve already received the best gift ever, but these gifts for new moms are a close second.
New moms aren’t your average gift recipients. New schedules, new workday routines, and a whole new person make your usual go-to Mother’s Day gifts a little less reliable. Maybe a gift card for a night out is a little too soon, or maybe a book might be left unread for months as their new family member gets acquainted. Really, the best gifts for new moms are a combination of pampering, convenient, easy, and touching. We also think it’s really important to give gifts that aren’t also kinda-sorta for the baby. Breast pumps and strollers are incredible presents and so appreciated. But it’s also a really good idea to let her know she’s still her own person. Simple, right? No worries. That’s why we’re here.
We’ve put together a guide that make picking out the best gifts easy. Whether she’s your wife, friend, sister, daughter, coworker, or another loved one, these thoughtful and helpful presents are fantastic on their own, or combined with goodies for the new little one. Or, snag a few that she’ll love from this list and put together a sure-to-be-appreciated gift basket or box. Whatever you choose, these gifts for new moms make sure she feels loved!

Listen. No, really listen. This is the candle. The one. The candle. The candle that makes you understand when people spend a little extra on it.
