Gift Guide for Expecting & New Moms

Gift Guide for Expecting & New Moms

Choosing a gift for an expecting or new mom can be a challenge. But moms have been through it and they need just as much love as the newest addition to the family! I've compiled a list of 10 things that are both very sweet and very practical for the mom-to-be in your life.

10 Items To Gift New & Expecting Mothers

Kept Childhood Journal

This baby book is like no other—it focuses heavily on the qualities of the child and who they are becoming rather than the usual, simple statistics. I personally keep one of these journals and so cherish the memories I have captured based on the book's unique prompts!

Food Delivery Service Gift Card

Cooking and cleaning are certainly tasks that are amazing to take off of the agenda when there's a new baby in the house. Food delivery does just that! DoorDash/Uber Eats/Grubhub gift cards are a perfect way to offer this sort of relief to new parents.

Massage Gift Card

Pregnancy, labor and delivery, recovery, and feeding and caring for a newborn take a lot (read: EVERYTHING) out of a person. The alone time and tender care a massage can provide could be the thing that keeps that person sane for just one more day. 


The ultimate transition-wear from a pregnant to a postpartum body. My recommendations are from the brands Blanqi (maternity and postpartum options) and Storq.


Really any robe will do. It's the perfect easy-on/easy-off, skin-to-skin companion during this time and pairs beautifully with a pair of sexy mesh undies. Try this organic robe from Under the Canopy or any of the robes from Parachute Home.

Fuzzy Socks/Slippers

This is just a fabulous creature comfort for someone experiencing so much change in their life, not to mention they are a great addition to the postpartum robe/mesh undies/obnoxious pads uniform. Try Parachute's Shearling Wool Clog.

Relaxation Basket

A cute little basketful of goodies like epsom salts, massage oil, and tea. Doesn't hurt to throw in a little jar of nipple care either, like Tubby Todd Organic Nipple Balm or Motherlove Nipple Cream. This was one of my personal favorites as a new mom! 

Instant Film Camera

An instant film camera like a the classic Polaroid or a Fujifilm instax mini is such a sweet, special way of capturing those little moments. The instant photos make adorable memories and will be so fun for the parents and babies alike to look back on years down the road.

Solly Baby Carrier

This is one of the absolute greatest baby carriers on the market. It allows so much freedom and comfort for a new mom and the brand's philanthropic work is something certainly worth supporting. The soft, muted designs are just the icing on the cake. What could be better?!

Gift Card for a Favorite Baby Brand

You may be thinking, "a gift card for baby clothes? This is supposed to be a gift for moms!" Trust me when I tell you, this IS a gift for moms. As a mother myself, I know all too well how exhilarating buying clothes for a new baby is, it's truly a treat. So allow her to browse and buy guilt-free. Grab a Nordbo gift card here.

Are you a mom? Any other must have's on your list? Let me know if I missed any of your favorites!
