Best Gift Ideas For New Moms

Best Gift Ideas For New Moms

When gifting a new mom, we love to give her a quiet moment to herself. And since a new mom can’t always get to the spa…or her favorite restaurant…or have time to shop for herself…we thought it’s always a nice gesture to bring some of these favorite little moments to her. 

We reached out to our friend Michelle Kennedy, Cofounder and CEO of Peanut, to get the inside scoop on what all the modern mama’s are wishing for this holiday season. Read on for her top picks (and insider’s knowledge) on what to gift all the expecting moms & new moms in your life. 

New Mom Gift Guide: 

For Relaxation: 

Prenatal massages are really wonderful. Every expectant mother is working a little bit harder, they're working for two - a moment of indulgent relaxation is so important.

What pairs beautifully with this? Tata’s Be Well: Aromatic Mood Therapy Collection is the perfect way to find daily peace with aromatherapy oils. Together with a massage, these treatments inspire feelings of peace and serenity to curb the effects of a busy lifestyle…or a much needed energy boost after a sleepless night. 

For Glowing Skin:

Skincare pre-arrival, and post, Tata Harper Illuminating Moisturizer and Tata Harper Illuminating Eye Crème are saviors to help hide the sleeplessness, and give new mamas an instant glow. 

For Motherly Maintenance 

For growing bellies, Tata’s Redefining Body Balm is packed with ultra hydration and time rewinding antioxidants to minimize the appearance of stretch marks or scarring. The firming blend contains a proprietary of six natural butters (murumuru, kokum, cocoa, capuaçu, mango, and shea) - and the total product absorbs fast and leaves skin feeling, well yes, like butter. 

Want to totally spoil the new (and deserving!) mother in your life? Do it up with the Restorative Body Treatment Bundle, including the Redefining Body Balm as well as the Soothing Body Scrub & Revitalizing Body Oil to leave skin feeling soft, youthful, and silky smooth. 

For Indulgence: 

All of the forbidden fruits: What could be better than champagne, blue cheese (and maybe a Sushi delivery), anything you've had to give up, you should celebrate in bringing back in!

On the topic of food, it's kind of the thing that goes out of the window, so anything that helps that along, whether it's healthy frozen meals, a Plated subscription, or a month of Door Dash on you? Or the best I've heard -- A personal chef for the night, so someone will come and treat you, and tidy up without you having to worry about the babysitting.

For Comfort & Versatility:

Muslin swaddles from Aden + Anais - the originals are still the best, use them for swaddling, spit ups, blankets (I think I even spotted a woman using one as a sarong on the beach once -- genius), beautiful, and fantastic quality.

Desmond and Dempsey pyjamas easy for breastfeeding, and if you're going to spend a considerable amount of time in PJs, they deserve to be cool ones.

For Wardrobe Creativity: 

This one is particularly genius- a Rent The Runway gift card. Your body is just changing so much sometimes it's easier to rent, and you still want t to retain your sense of style.

For Practicality: 

I adore this Hatch Mama Hospital to home gift pack. Cosy, elegant, and something you'd never buy for yourself, but will never stop using post the 4th trimester either!
