Becoming a mom is such a special and amazing milestone in your life.

As special as it is, it does come with a lot of change, many struggles, and a huge learning curve.

New moms can feel pretty overwhelmed with everything going on at first.

So, if you’re looking for a gift for a new mom, I have put together some of the BEST gifts for new moms that they are sure to love!

These gifts are aimed to make their lives easier, simplify the chaos of being a new mom, and give them something that will help ease the transition of this huge life changing stage!



Instant Pot

Oh man, this thing has changed the game! The Instant Pot can really do it all, and if there is anything a new mom needs, it’s someone (or something) to do it all!

This has cut down my cooking time SIGNIFICANTLY and melts away the overwhelming feelings that come with tackling meal prep. This is a must-have gift for every new mom!

Acorn Spa Wrap Slippers

A new mom will be spending A LOT of time around the house. The majority of that time will be spent in lounge-wear. Spoil her tired feet with these insanely comfortable (and soft) slippers.

They feel like heaven on your feet. What more could you want?!

Jura ENA Micro 5 Coffee Machine

I have always been a big-time coffee lover. I’ve tried the Keurig, the Nespresso, the regular drip coffee, the French press, you name it, I’ve tried it.

I found myself making my much-needed cup of coffee in the morning, but always craving for a “real” coffee from a coffee shop. That all changed when we got a Jura.

This machine has changed my coffee-loving life and I couldn’t be happier! (I literally prefer this over a coffee from Starbucks). You pour in whole beans, no grinding needed!

They are ground on the spot with each cup you brew. This ensures you are getting the freshest tasting coffee possible. It makes espresso, ristretto, regular coffee, and all with the simple tap on the touch screen icon of your choice!

I could probably write an entire post about this machine, but I’ll just leave it at this: AMAZING GIFT FOR A TIRED NEW MOM!

Monthly Milestone Blanket

This adorable blanket makes taking monthly milestone pictures a snap! (see what I did there?!) Every new mom will LOVE this sweet blanket.

Trying to figure out the best pose and background for a milestone picture can be overwhelming! Then, once you finally think of something cute, your baby won’t stay in that pose, or they start crying, look slumped over, etc.

Then recreating that same scene a month later seems impossible! This blanket takes all of that out of the picture (I did it again, lol) and gives a simple and adorable solution to monthly milestone photos.

YETI Tumbler

I am obsessed with this tumbler. It is AMAZING at keeping your beverage hot or cold ALL DAY LONG! Seriously, at the end of the day, my ice cubes are still intact.

This tumbler is perfect for the busy new mom whose coffee goes cold, ice water goes warm, or any other temperature related problem you may encounter!

It’s easy to bring along with you wherever you go, and makes drinking water actually enjoyable! (Which is especially important for breastfeeding moms.) This one is sure to excite any new mom.

Baby’s First Christmas Ornament

No matter what time of year a new mom has her baby, Baby’s First Christmas Ornament is ALWAYS a big hit. Your first Christmas as a mom is a big one. There is nothing more precious to remember it by than an adorable personalized ornament!

Foldable Breakfast Table

Ahhh yes, the breakfast table that we all thought was something to just collect dust and take up space in our closet. I mean, who makes us breakfast in bed anyways?!

Well, as a new mom, you’ll be spending a lot of time in bed. A lot. And after many spilled coffee cups, stained sheets, time spent searching for the remote, no place for my iPad stand, I finally understand the purpose of the breakfast table!!!

A completely useful and practical item for a new mom.

Sony a5100 Camera

We bought this camera right before having my first child. I have a ton of home videos from my childhood, and with all of the iPhone, Snapchat, Instagram craziness, I didn’t want my kids’ childhood memories to be 4-second snippets.

Also, I wanted a quality camera that is easy to use, is as high quality as a DSLR without being huge and bulky, something I can easily bring around with me and whip out on a moments notice, be able to take high-quality milestone photos, high-quality video, and be able to Bluetooth transfer them wirelessly to my phone.

This one checks all the boxes and has not let me down once! I am still blown away at how AMAZING this camera is for the price, compared to its competitors.

Lumbar Support Back Pillow

New mom’s spend a lot of time sitting, holding the baby, feeding the baby, comforting the baby, etc. Having proper back support to prevent throwing your back out of whack is really important!

Carrying around a baby, baby bag, car seat, baby carrier, pushing a stroller, getting them in and out of the car, can all cause major strain to your back.

This lumbar support back pillow is super comfortable and gives much-needed support.

Cute Mom T-Shirt

Being a new mom is so much fun, and what better way to enjoy that than with a SUPER comfy, cute MOM TSHIRT?! Mom style is a thing, and these shirts are the perfect way to be that cute, modern mom while staying casual and comfy.

Mom’s Guide to: Baby’s First Year

This is my ultimate guide for new moms, with monthly milestones, what changes to expect each month, tips & tricks for managing the difficult milestones, and so much more!

This is an instant digital download, super affordable, and very unique and personable! I love taking a digital download, having it printed and spiral bound and gifting it to someone special.

It really is such a fun gift to give a new mom!


I hope this gift guide for new moms was helpful in finding that perfect gift for the amazing mother’s you know and love!
