The holiday season is just around the corner. Do you know what to get the mom in your life during this time of year? Moms work hard all year long, and sometimes they need to be treated to a little TLC themselves!
Whether you're shopping for your wife, best friend, or even yourself (we won't tell!) make sure you have the right things in mind. New moms love the simple things — a quick nap, a homecooked meal (that they didn't have to make themselves), and just some time to themselves to take a much-needed moment for themselves. Here are our favorite picks for self-care holiday gift ideas for new moms.
1. Sensor Alarm Clock
The only thing most new moms want the most is a good night's sleep. Unfortunately, that's hard to come by in those first few months with baby, so moms have to get in sleep whenever (and wherever) they can. With postpartum insomnia being common, new moms need all the help they can get.
Since we all know there's nothing worse than a rude awakening from a loud, harsh alarm clock, gift the new mom in your life with the Philips Wake-Up Light Alarm Clock. The natural light of the clock simulates a natural sunrise, waking moms up without all the stress.
2. Shower Yoga Body Scrub
New moms don't always feel their best! Gift the new mom in your life a scrub designed to soothe her aches and pains. Perfect for muscle and joint relief, the Shower Yoga Body Scrub is packed with magnesium and Dead Sea salt to help heal her body (and mind) in the shower.
3. Wine Subscription
It's nicknamed mom juice for a reason, right? Finding the right wine can be a hassle, let alone finding the time to make it to the store. With a wine subscription like Winc, you can give the new mom in your life her favorite wines right to her door. Cheers to that! This is one of the best things you can do for a new mom!
4. Home Meal Kit
A homecooked meal sometimes feels like a thing of the past once the baby arrives. Unless you're counting frozen pizza, which we aren't.
Give the new mom in your life the gift of a homecooked meal with a home meal kit. Let's face it, cooking isn't easy even when you don't have a new baby around. By gifting a monthly subscription to a meal kit service like HelloFresh, home-cooked meals just got a lot simpler.
5. Coffee Warmer
Who doesn't love a warm cup of coffee in the morning? Unfortunately for new moms, sometimes that coffee sits for a while. Why settle for lukewarm coffee when you could use a coffee warmer to keep that mug fresh for hours? The Mr. Coffee Mug Warmer might be simple, but it's a lifesaver. Pair this with our infamous Morning Matcha face scrub for some serious morning wake-up power!
6. Google Assistant
"Hey Google, play the baby's music." New moms all need an extra pair of hands, so why not gift them a hands-free digital assistant like the Google Home? From playing music to making calls, this is the extra help around the house every new mom needs. A digital assistant is also a great thing to add to a new mom survival kit.
7. Cooling Face Mask
Let the new mom in your life kick back and relax with this cooling face mask. It's like a trip to the spa in your own home, complete with anti-redness powers. When paired with our Kiwi Face Mud Mask, this is an unstoppable duo.
The cooling gel is perfect for getting rid of those pesky dark circles and even helps with headaches. What a relief! The Sofida mask is a tried-and-true favorite for new moms everywhere.
8. Babysitting Vouchers
Who said you needed to spend big to give back? That new mom in your life just wants some peace and quiet this holiday season. Give her the gift that keeps on giving: babysitting time!
Offering to take the little one off her hands for a few hours so she can catch up on sleep, hang out with friends, or just take a relaxing bath will give her a much-needed break. These Babysitting Coupons are the perfect way to gift your services!
9. Clothing Subscription
After having a baby, the new mom in your life will likely need a few new wardrobe staples. Her body is different, and she might not feel comfortable in her old clothes.
Gifting a clothing subscription service like Stitchfix will give her an opportunity to find what fits her new style. From basics to fancier numbers, she can customize this subscription to what she needs.
10. Relaxing Bath For Moms
Baths have been used to heal and soothe the body for over 2000 years, so this is a crowd-pleasing gift that every mom will love. Gift the mom in your life a moisturizing milk and honey bath with Call Me Cleopatra. The aromatic mixture is all about mom time! Milk baths are also one of the top wellness trends of 2020, so she's sure to fall in love with this one.
New Mom Holiday Gift Guide
All of these gifts above make the perfect self-care holiday gift idea for new moms. New moms need some extra care more than anyone, so gifting them something for themselves instead of something for baby will go a long way this holiday season.
Treat yourself, mama! You deserve it!
