9 Ultimate gift ideas we curated:
1. Self-Care Kit

Give her the gift of relaxation with a spa day at home. You can put together a basket filled with scented candles, luxurious bath oils, bath salts, and a comfy bathrobe. She might not have time to do it all at once but just lighting a candle in the evening can feel like a luxury on it's own.
Toss in a gift certificate for a professional massage, or better yet, offer to babysit while she enjoys some uninterrupted relaxation time.
2. Photo Session
Treat her to a professional photo session for her and her baby at her house. Her phone might already be filled with photos of the baby but not of her and the full family. It might not be the focus during this time but in the future she will for sure cherish the memory of those early moments.
3. Subscription to a Streaming Service or Audio Books
A subscription to a streaming service like Netflix or Disney+ can provide hours of entertainment during late-night feedings. An audio book subscription like Audible can offer an alternative to visual entertainment when the eyes are too tired and you just feel like listening to something, or when going for a stroller walk.
4. Breastfeeding-Friendly Tops and Bras

Being comfortable is key at this time. Look for tops that have easy access for breastfeeding such as wrap-style blouses or button-down shirts and nursing bras like our Valeria Nursing Bra which have magnetic clips that open easily to make breastfeeding a breeze. Then she can feel stylish and comfortable at the same time.
5. Stylish Slip-On Shoes
Shoes from Flattered
Slip-on shoes like stylish sneakers or comfortable flats can make getting out of the house with a baby much easier. Look for a pair that suits her style. If you live in a colder country this will be perfect to use inside instead.
6. Cozy Blanket
Whether it's for nursing, cuddling with the baby, or simply snuggling up for some well-deserved me-time, a soft, warm, and cozy blanket can make her everyday extra cosy.
It's another thoughtful and practical gift to make your beloved new mama feel the warmth of your love.
7. Spa voucher/Postpartum Massage
Give her some time to herself to feel relaxed and rejuvenated with a postpartum massage. Let her indulge in a day of self care, where she can escape the stresses of daily life and emerge feeling refreshed and revitalized. Make sure to offer babysitting or a long validity period of the voucher as it can different who wants to leave their babies or not. In this way she can decide for herself to feel most comfortable.
8. Cleaning Service Voucher
A voucher for a cleaning service or offering to clean the house yourself. With this thoughtful present, you're offering the new mom (and a potential partner) the opportunity to enjoy a break from household chores that tend to pile up.
It's a gift of convenience and comfort, a true blessing for any parent.
9. Spend Some Quality Time with Her
Another perfect gift idea for new moms is to spend quality time with them, whether it's over a cup of coffee at her favorite café or restaurant, or a cozy movie night at home. You can bring over her favorite films or TV shows, along with some snacks and treats for a relaxing evening together.
True essence of gift-giving lies not just in the item itself but in the love, care, and thoughtfulness behind it. Whether you choose a cozy blanket for her to snuggle up with, a spa day to rejuvenate her tired soul, or a sentimental keepsake that holds a piece of her heart, your gesture will be a source of warmth and comfort during this precious time in her life.New motherhood is a chapter filled with both challenges and rewards, and your support, expressed through these thoughtful gifts, can make all the difference. So, this holiday season, let your presents be a reflection of your love and admiration for the remarkable new mom in your life. May your holidays be filled with love, laughter, and the joy of giving ❤️
