Gift Ideas for the New Mom
Most new moms and moms-to-be end up with a ton of things for their baby, but nothing for themselves. A nice idea, after she gives birth and all the attention is on the baby, is to give Mom a little something just for her. It doesn’t have to be expensive, just something that lets her know that she matters and her hard work has not gone unnoticed.The Gift of Help
Your gift doesn’t even have to be a material thing, it can just be a little help. Make a few meals and bring them over to stock her freezer so she doesn’t have to worry about feeding the rest of the family while she’s focused on a newborn. Volunteer to do baby laundry once a week; new parents are often overwhelmed with mountains of crib sets, onesies, and blankets that need to be washed.
The Gift of Relaxation
Try a gift certificate for a massage, facial, or an entire spa day. Giving birth is hard work, and taking care of an infant takes a lot of energy. A day of pampering just for her is sure to be appreciated.
If your favorite new mom is an avid reader, you might consider a book or two as a gift. While she doesn’t have much time to herself, there are bound to be a few quiet moments here and there when she can sit and take a break. A book of short stories would be ideal.
