Holiday Gifts for the New Mom Ultimate Guide
I had a blast putting together this list of holiday gifts for the new mom! As it is my own first Christmas as a mom I really tried to look for items that I would love and that would be both special and useful. If you’re a mom you know the name of the game is functional, multipurpose but also chic, and that’s exactly what I went for with this guide!
I think any new mom would greatly appreciate the items on this list!
I have this necklace and wear it frequently, it’s easy to incorporate into any outfit because of the neutral colors and cute design! Plus it keeps Luca occupied while I hold or carry him and he grabs it while he nurses which keeps him semi-focused!
I shared this cardigan a few weeks ago and told you guys how obsessed I was with it for many reasons, but I mainly love the length! It has the coziness of a robe but can also be dressed up or down for an everyday outfit. It comes in different colors options and fits true to size. Barefoot Dreams is the softest material I’ve ever felt and any new mom would be thrilled to receive this as a gift!
My nursing cover is hands down one of the most useful new mom items I received. I use it as a car seat cover, shopping cart cover and nursing cover. I love when items are multi-purpose, especially as a new mom because who wants to carry around 57 things for all different tasks!? Plus this brand uses buttery-soft material and has a bunch of different patterns to choose from!
I have been using this diaper bag since day one with Luca and I have to say it’s worth every penny! The quality is gorgeous and the backpack style is both sleek and convenient. Inside has all the pockets you need to organize your baby and mama goodies! Click here for the Nordstrom link!
I decided to add some beauty products because what new mom doesn’t enjoy quick skin pick-me-ups? If I’m being honest I don’t remember to do my entire skincare regimen every day but I DO make sure to use this cleansing balm regularly. I can speak to how nourishing it has been to my skin and it’s another multitasker – cleanser, makeup remover, moisturizer. Any new mom would be so appreciative of this gift! If you purchase please name me, Christine Covino as your consultant!
You guys know how much I love these leggings! So I won’t bore you BUT they are amazing, especially postpartum with their high compression/control top (high-waisted as well). The sheen is very subtle, making them perfect for dressing up or down – again, multipurpose, LOVE IT. I recommend sizing up one! They are seriously the bomb. I linked options from all different retailers below.
I think this tee is awesome! And they just came out with a Christmas ornament as well YAS! I live in comfy tees these days and why not get fun mama-themed ones for the new mom?
Roomba has been a lifesaver for us! We have a dog that sheds BAD so vacuuming should really be done everyday but who has time for that? Not a new mom that’s for sure. So the gift of cleaning is one of THE BEST things you can give a new mom! If you can’t afford to gift a robotic vacuum like this then maybe offer to come clean one time for her! It would be more appreciated than she could express! All different retailers linked below.
These are a great stocking stuffer idea! These hairbands are the only ones that don’t rip my hair out or kink it! I joke about wanting to cut my long hair off because there’s always something – spit up, breastmilk or food in it plus Luca tries to rip it out any chance he can get his sticky hands on it. So yes, any new mom would greatly appreciate this gift!
This necklace has Luca’s birthdate etched in roman numerals and I think it’s so beautiful and special. This shop has all different gorgeous options, personalized jewelry is the way to any moms heart for sure.
Is it weird to want to EAT a beauty product!? LOL. Literally overtime I open my sugar scrub jar I think about eating a little bit. It’s THAT yummy! But its also super moisturizing with nourishing oils, sometimes when I’m really in a rush I don’t even have to moisturize afterward! Every new mom wants to save time PLUS feel pampered and let me tell you, this product does both. If you purchase please name me, Christine Covino as your consultant!
Luxury skincare at an affordable price! One of the things I longed for during those early days of motherhood was a facial. I couldn’t leave Luca for too long so I started doing mini facials at home. It made me feel more human and I really needed that! So this kit definitely has my vote for a new mom gift!
Lactation cookies are always the way to a new moms heart. Functional AND delicious, plus you can sign her up for a subscription so she never has to think about reordering – the gift that keeps on giving!
I just got these pajamas a few weeks ago and I have been LIVING in them. I can say they are truly the SOFTEST ever! They also have a convenient panel that just flaps up conveniently for nursing or pumping moms! Again, all about my things being beautiful, good quality and functional! Use code COVINO20 for 20% off your order on the Kindred Bravely website!
I had some other quick suggestions if you are in need of more unique ideas! One is to make a gift basket out of a few of these items, it’s always special to receive a beautifully curated and displayed basket of goodies.
A Target or Amazon gift card is always greatly appreciated (anyone else an #amazonmom?). A flower subscription for the lower lover would brighten up any new mama’s day, I’ve been wanting to try out Farm Girl Flowers! I also think an in-home massage or chiropractic service would be amazing! It’s sometimes hard to leave the house but if someone could come to you… game changer!
Another great gift idea for a new mom would be simply to help her with the home – stock the fridge, make a few easily-reheated dinners, clean the house, leave fresh flowers around. Sometimes it’s the simplest gestures that make the biggest impact!
Thank you for reading my post, I hope these ideas holiday gifts for the new mom helps!
