New Mom Holiday Gift 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!
We lived in these Solly wraps with my first, it was the only place my son would nap peacefully and now with my second they’re saving us again during the witching hour and when I need to be multitasking (aka wrangling my almost three year old, doing household tasks, going food shopping — total lifesaver!). Plus, little tip, if you’re at an event or out somewhere and you don’t want people touching baby, put him in this wrap and there’s nothing for people to touch/they won’t even ask!
I love these wraps because the material is super soft, has the slightest stretch and is breathable but still keeps baby warm because he’s so close to you. It truly mimics the womb which is perfect for providing feelings of comfort and security to newborns. Then just figure out how to nurse in it and you’re golden!!

Anyone know a mama who might be needing some extra emotional support? That’s one of my main reasons for diving in head first with oils, that, swapping over to a toxin free home and organic gardening/pest control. But for real, during the most difficult year for our family these oils helped bring me back to life and I truly think anyone, especially the new mom who is adjusting to a new dynamic, would greatly benefit from this support!
Also, if you already have oils I would suggest making the new mom a cute and useful DIY Spa Kit! Check out my easy glow serum recipe here or head to my Instagram where I share more ideas and recipes like sugar scrubs, room sprays and bath salts!! Throw in a gemstone roller and some calming crystals and you’ve given the gift of both aromatherapy and relaxation that she will for sure love, now she just needs some alone time! Can anyone gift that to me please!?
But for real, scents like peace & calming, stress away, valor, joy, white angelica and gentle baby have all been super supporting emotional for me. All the relaxing, stress-free vibes for the new mama!

I have been using this diaper bag since day one (well for our three out of the house trips so far hah) with Elora 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! I also love this two-tone Rachel Zip Tote, it would make a great gift for any mom!

I love this beautiful and simple journal for the new mama, it’s nice to not only write down baby milestones but also record how mom is feeling <3

Anyone else love flowers? You’ll love this shop and what they offer if so! Birth flowers are the flowers representing the month you were born (like birthstones). This mama-owned shop will make you a custom print of flowers representing the members of your family (including angel babies if you wish) to create a totally unique bouquet or wreath! We absolutely love our print and will be framing it for Christmas!

Wow this robe you guys😍 SO GOOD! I don’t know about you guys but I love a good robe and slippers set, especially while breastfeeding a newborn and recovering from a c-section! Barefoot Dreams is the softest material I’ve ever felt and any new mom (hint hint, Alex – ME! haha) would be thrilled to receive this as a gift!
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!

I think this tee is awesome! Also the shop owner Lindsay is a badass, she works super hard at normalizing breastfeeding which I love so much!! And she just came out with a Christmas ornament and mugs as well YAS! I live in comfy tees and sweatshirts these days, why not get fun mama-themed ones for the new mom?
This 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 absolutely love love love this shop. The necklace I have from them is one of my most prized possessions, You can get all of your children’s birthstones and hand-hammered letter charms. She even makes angel wing charms which I love, I have two for my miscarriages and one for Liam. This shop has all different gorgeous options, personalized jewelry is the way to any moms heart for sure.
I have literally been living in my Dwell & Slumber housedresses! I need like 17 more colors please haha. My favorite style is the cocoon, I shared mine on IG stories the other day and you guys loved it also! I think both the dresses and/or robes would make a wonderful gift for the new mom — they’re comfy, cozy, made of THE softest material ever, provide easy access for nursing, and they’re beautiful so you feel good but don’t need to put effort into getting dressed while just home with your babe! D&S also offers baby swaddles, gowns and hats so you can match if you want!
I received one of these beautifully curated gift boxes after having Luca and it felt so special. I was so in love with the company I’ve started sending different ones for special occasions to friends and family over the years! I love the convenience of ordering online but they customize the boxes and hand-pack them for a homey and personalized feel which any new mom would love — especially this zen spa themed box (pictured above)!
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!
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.
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.
Because new moms need good sleep more han anyone but they rarely get it. Along with diffusing essential oils, I’ve found sleeping on my silk pillowcase and using an eye mask when possible helps keep me more rested especially when Im waking 2-3 times a night feed the baby!
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!

Extra New Mom Holiday Gift Ideas
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?).
Dropping off a home cooked meal or getting them a food delivery service is also always so appreciated, I know meal times were (are) always the hardest so any help is super appreciated! You can do a GrubHub gift card or check out this site – A Spoonful of Comfort – they make homemade soups and send out homey (and delicious) food boxes!
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! Or a Coffeys or wine subscription, yes please! 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, entertain the toddler/older children, 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!
