Moms are the best! They sacrifice so much for their little ones and their not-so-little ones. I will share with you a list of gift ideas for new moms.
Often, new moms can be overwhelmed by the lack of sleep, the sudden change of environment (from work to just being at home), or even their new responsibilities as a mother to a tiny baby.
They put all their energy and time into taking care of their baby, that sometimes, forget about themselves.

1. Amazon Prime
Being a mom is hard, even harder when she’s a newborn mom. One gift that could be really helpful is a year of Amazon Prime. She can order diapers, burp cloths, or even groceries if she can’t leave the house and need them within the next few days.
When supplies run low, she can thank you because of the fast and free shipping she gets with Amazon Prime.
The other day, I was looking to buy diapers because we forgot to stock up. Yes, even as parents of a toddler, we can forget these things! It was good that we were able to quick order them through Amazon. It showed up during the week and I could use them right away.
If she’s not sure whether it is useful for her, she can try it out free for 30 days. Click on the box below to learn more about it.
Depending on the mom, you can get her jewelry for mother’s day. She might like some of these accessories I will share with you below.
But before I do, I want to clarify that some moms might not wear jewelry because they are cautious about some sharp parts of the jewelry around the baby. You can still get it for them to wear when they go out or for special occasions.
Please check or ask if the mom is allergic to any type of material or metal. It’ll be good to know before you make a purchase for her.
Bracelets are fun for moms to stack or wear individually.
If the mom prefer simple and minimalistic jewelry, this minimalist birthstone bracelet is a nice one to gift to her for mother’s day. You can choose to put just the baby’s birthstone or include the mom as well. This bracelet is easily stackable with other thin bracelets as well.
A cool mother’s day gift idea is to give a bracelet with morse code. You can choose a short phrase such as “I love you” or a name as the morse code. What do you think about this morse code bracelet idea? Please let me know in the comments below.
This silicone teething bracelet is a great one for new moms and teething babies. It looks really fun and is a great accessory yet practical for the baby. You can get both a teething bracelet and a teething necklace too. More on that in the next point.
Necklaces look really great and can be functional too.
A teething necklace looks cute and is also pretty useful with a teething baby. The baby can chew on the necklace without the mom worrying about it. Also, it helps that the baby is chewing on this teething necklace instead of relying on the mom as a pacifier.
Another really nice option is this gold heart locket necklace. They can put the picture of the baby in the locket if they wish to. It’s such a simple yet meaningful mother’s day gift.
If you know the name of the baby, you can get a personalized necklace with the baby’s name. You can customize the color and length of the necklace.
Rings are something that the mom can wear when she wants.
I’ve picked a few options that are really nice and meaningful.
These stackable rings with engraved names are really nice. They are really nice and you can put the kids’ names on them. You can choose the type of finish you would like.
If you know what is the mom’s or baby’s birthstone, you can get this birthstone ring. It’s special because it comes with an initial of your choosing. You can also get a ring with only the birthstones here.
Adjustable rings are also a great gift to give for mother’s day. You do not need to worry whether it will fit the mom as she can adjust it to her finger. This adjustable ring is a simple yet great mother’s day gift.
Earrings are so much fun for the mom to wear.
She can wear them when she feels like she wants to dress up or choose to wear them on a daily basis.
I’ve chosen to recommend stud earrings so that the mom can wear them without worrying that the baby will pull on the earrings. Take a look at the suggestions and decide what is best for the mom you are gifting.
Since it is Mother’s day, I thought to find these cute heart shape sterling silver earrings. Please do check or ask if she is allergic to a specific material as I’ve mentioned before. These heart earrings are so adorable and can remind her of your love and care for her.
Another option is to give her these beautiful birthstone earrings if the birth stone holds a meaning for her or her baby. If you click on the drop down, they will also list the month to help you decide which one you want to get.
You can get something more luxurious, diamond stud earrings. These are affordable yet they look so glamorous on mom. They are so beautiful!
There are so many options out there. Be sure to check out Etsy for many varieties of these jewelry made by local artists.
3. Wall Decor (with encouraging love-related words)
Another type of gift that you can give a new mom is wall decor.
You can give them a wonderful quote in a frame that says “You are my sunshine“. They can hang this up in the baby’s room or above the crib in their room.
4. Newborn Photography Session
Here is a wonderful give to gift to a mom of a newborn. You can find a local baby photographer, who is an expert is taking pictures of babies, and pay for a session for the newborn and the family.
It’ll be a nice memory and experience for the whole family, especially for the mom.
5. Time (Watch the baby while mom naps)
The gift of time is an amazing one to receive.
When my daughter was a newborn, I was exhausted. I was new to this motherhood thing and definitely needed some time to rest.
If you have some time to offer, offer the mom of the newborn to watch over the baby for an hour or two while she does what she needs to. Even if she does not take a nap, the companionship helps a lot!
You can offer your time, but do ask the mom when is a convenient time for her. Please ask as she might prefer you to come at certain hours of the day.
6. Self-Care Kits
These self-care pamper box are really fun for moms who can take a few minutes for herself. Newborn moms really need their alone time too. Yes, they feel like they should give all their energy and time to the baby. However, it is so important that the mom takes care of herself.
If you know for sure that she prefers lavender, this lavender self-care kit is perfect for her. One of the reviews said that it smelled so good.
Another gift idea is to gift this honey bee gift box, which includes a honey lip scrub and bracelet. It looks so cute!
There are so many options out there. Be sure to check out Etsy for many varieties of these self-care pamper boxes for the mother’s day gift.
7. Developmental Toys For the Baby
This gift is not necessarily for mom, however, in the long run this does benefit the mom.
As parents, we do worry whether our children are developing well or not. It is not necessary that they be better than everyone else in their class, but that they are on track in their own progress.
I found these Lovevery play kits that are designed for children of different ages. They specialize in creating developmental toys starting at the newborn stage.
So, how does this benefit the mom?
When the baby or child is entertained and are happily playing by themselves, the mom is free to do what she wishes (relatively). She can take a break and sit while watching her child.
Every one of us needs a break sometimes, especially a mom of a newborn. Check out the different play kits at Lovevery.
