! The New Mom Gift Guide !
With the holiday season in full swing, the wheels are turning for those unique gifts people will actually remember being gifted. New moms can often be some of the hardest people to gift, simply because it takes a while for the focus to move back towards mama and ever so slightly away from the baby. What I mean is – new moms more often get gifts FOR BABY, instead of FOR MOM. And as a new mom, one of the more difficult things to do is pamper yourself when your new little one is taking over your life. So here’s where the newlymoms gift guide comes in. And while massages, spa days and all things pampering are always a GREAT way to go – what about those slightly more unique gifts that she’ll actually use and cherish for an extended period of time. You know, those that will last past the baby’s growth spurts and far beyond a spa day in the lap of luxury.

So on that note, here are some unique gift ideas for new moms this holiday season:
For the Health & Wellness Lovers …
One of the first things every new mom thinks after giving birth and sanity returns post sleep-deprivation is how to get the pre-preggo body back. And, as many of us have learned, it’s not always about the weight gain – but more often about the drastic body changes – skin, hair, etc. Cellulite can be a not-so-pleasant side effect and – believe me, I’ve tried it all in retalliation. And creams, supplements, etc. don’t work. But this baby DOES. It’s revolutionary. Using this to massage problem areas, smooths out the taught fascia layers and reduces – even eliminates – the appearance of cellulite. This thing is NO JOKE. Not to mention it also reduces pain & stiffness while improving circulation and range of motion around those problem areas.
Kettlebells, Kettlebells, Kettlebells
When it comes to getting back in shape – an all-encompassing, quick, at-home workout is the name of the game for a new mom. And nothing is better, in my humble opinion, than kettlebell workouts. They’re easy to store and pull out at a moments notice when the baby is asleep and hands are free. Swings can get your heart rate up enough to make it feel like cardio while also working a handful of different muscles. Just make sure to your new mom is cleared by her doctor to start working out and be sure to follow proper kettlebell form and recommendations.
All Things Beauty …
Again, with the getting back in shape thing. It sounds crazy, I know, but we all want to LOOK like we’re back in shape before we actually are. And most new moms probably can’t or won’t justify spending money on these things – but if they were gifted, on the other hand … GLORY! Not to mention, supportive shapewear actually aids your body in getting back into shape anyway …
Also – let’s not forget for any soon-to-be mamas, SPANX has a fantastic Maternity Shapewear line as well.
7 Charming Sisters Jewelry
Pick a piece to match the personality of your new mom in mind by shopping the collections of 7 Charming Sisters. The women behind this company curated collections to match each of their extra-unique personalities and one is bound to be perfect for your new mama.
Virtue Labs Hair Care
One of the most difficult (not really) transitions from pregnancy to motherhood is to the glow to the gunk. Your skin and hair take a nosedive from it’s peak of hormonal perfection down to the style le spit-up. So some luxurious much-needed self-care products can definitely be a HUGE blessing. Virtue Labs Hair Care uses an innovative complex that has been shown to heal burn wounds and repair tissue on wounded warriors in the battle field, and as a by-product was discovered to repair hair as well. I’d go out on a limb and say this stuff works.
AND they’re so convinced y’all will love it – they have this awesome deal: Try before you buy and only pay if you love it!
For the Slightly More Indulgent Needs …
California Wine Club
The 2nd thing every new mom thinks after giving birth is, of course, give me that glass of wine. Even breastfeeding mamas can coordinate this perfectly in order to work the occasional glass into the routine. California Wine Club supports artisan small-batch wineries because they believe these taste better than the mass-produced ones you find on your local shelves (and they’re right).
For those mamas loving the wines of Washington & Oregon – try gifting the Pacific Northwest Series.
For the Cab lovers – try the Aged Cabernet Series.
Or the International Series!
And For EVERY Mom EVERYWHERE …
Give the gift of Amazon Prime.
If you know any mom, anywhere, who doesn’t have Amazon Prime – this will change her life. Be the one she remembers in her will and gift her the best a new mom could ask for.
