It’s baby shower season! I have so many mom’s-to-be in my life and I can’t wait to spoil them and love on their new babies. Today I’ve rounded up some of my favorite gifts to give to new moms, including some of the best products I used when I had my own girls.
Leather Baby Moccasins are a must-have. They are buttery soft and won’t fall off little feet, and look absolutely adorable. Freshly Picked moccasins are the Cadillac of baby mocs (and a mama-owned company to boot,) but BirdRock Baby moccasins from Amazon are another great option at a lower price point. With tons of colors and styles to pick from, these will suit anyone.
A Wooden Rattle is the perfect first toy for baby. With so many toys on the market, sometimes it’s best to stick with a classic. I love this one because it’s made of natural materials and great for teething. Once baby grows up, it makes an adorable keepsake.
Jellycat Stuffed Animals are the sweetest little gift for a new baby. We have the Woodland Bunny for Eva and the Bumbly Bear for Claire, both in the medium size. They are official members of the family and go everywhere with us.
Little Unicorn Swaddle Blankets are a no-brainer gift. Super soft, gorgeous colors, whimsical prints, and obviously very practical. This particular brand is high quality and gets softer with every wash. I love the watercolor floral prints, but they have great options for little boys too, like these planetary print ones & this neutral set of three.
Cool Mist Humidifier & Diffuser is something most new parents won’t know they need until they really need it. We’ve tried several but this one is a sure winner. It gives a great amount of cool mist to keep babies sinuses healthy and can also be used as a diffuser for essential oils. Bonus – it’s more discreet looking than most humidifiers on the market.
Board Books are a great gift to start baby’s library. I received On the Night You Were Born by Nancy Tillman at my own baby shower, and my girls still request it to be read to them before bed. I also picked up Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney when I was pregnant with my first, because I remembered reading it as a child with my own mom. A sweet classic that moms will love reading with their babies for years to come.
Halo Sleepsacks were life changing for me with my firstborn. I was very concerned with her temperature while asleep. She was born in June, so I didn’t want her to be bundled up too much and overheat. I was also very concerned that her tiny piggies wouldn’t survive the night if I didn’t keep her covered. Enter the sleep sack. Exactly as the name implies, it’s a zip up sack that you layer over a onesie or pajamas to keep your baby covered but not overheated. I love the 100% cotton style, but they also come in plush fleece for winter babies.
Wubbanub Pacifier is a truly ingenious product. The pediatrician-favorite Philips Avent BPA-free pacifier meets a sweet miniature stuffed animal perfect for little hands. These come at a great price point and Amazon has a huge selection to choose from.
The Honest Bath Set is an ultra-practical gift, elevated. Filled with diapers, wipes, baby bath, lotion, hand sanitizer and all purpose balm in an amazing vanilla orange scent, this set will definitely be put to good use.
WildBird Ring Sling Carrier is a stunning gift. It’s super easy to use and comes in tons of beautiful colors and prints. By the way, this sling is Joanna Gaines approved, made in America, and from a Mama-owned company – win, win, win.
A Sofie the Giraffe Teether is a sweet little gift that will come in handy during teething. I love this one because the rings make it easy for little ones to hold, and it’s super easy to clean.
Mom’s One Line A Day Journal is such a thoughtful surprise for new mamas. Almost everyone wants to write in a daily journal, but it can be intimidating to think of filling out multiple pages each day – especially with a new baby to take care of. This journal gives a small space to write a few lines daily, and makes a beautiful keepsake long after baby is grown.
Modern Piggy Bows & Bow Ties are such a fun gift for a new mama. I love these ones because aside from having gorgeous prints and solids, these come in baby headbands, big girl bows, bow ties for boys, and even styles for adults. It would be so sweet to give the mom-to-be a matching set for herself & her little one.
L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil is really one of my favorite gifts to give for any occasion. It makes a great shower gift (haha) to spoil the new mom. I love it because it creates a luxurious lather, rinses clean, and leaves skin super soft and lightly scented with sweet almond. It’s perfect for a new mom who might not have much time for herself but still needs pampering.
Flowy Cotton Robe is an absolute must-have for new moms. I love this one from Amazon because it’s soft and flowy and washes up really well (which is important for new moms for reasons I won’t explain here but you can probably figure out yourself.) It comes in lots of colors and I think the light blue would flatter just about anyone.
I hope you love these products and pick some up for the new mom in your life (or for yourself). I absolutely love shopping for moms and babies and had so much fun putting this together. Now tell me, who are you shopping for right now? And what are your must-have baby products?
