The Best Gifts For First Time Mom – Because She Need It.

I know the biggest gift for any new mom is her baby. But unlike labor, a congratulatory “push” present never hurts. Here are some gift ideas for a first-time mom.

A Personalized Baby Name Necklace

Some special personalized bling is a sweet way to reward the hard-working mama.

Designer tote

Life is a lot simpler when you have a sturdy tote to schlep around all the things a new baby (and mom) need. I love this bag by Carter’s. It’s 100% Polyester, so it can withstand all types of weather.

Breastfeeding cover

Breastfeeding cover, nursing shawl, even hooter hider. Whatever you choose to call it, they all have one important job – to help keep her privacy if she wants to breastfeed but worried about being exposed in any way. In my opinion, it’s a must for any mom that Breastfeed her baby.

Nursing Pads

Breast pads or nursing pads are one of those items that you may not even think about until you will need them. It’s not fun to not have them when the breasts start to leak. The first time mom will definitely appreciate this present (and you).

A comforting ride

Late-night feedings will be easier on Mom and more soothing for the baby if they can spend them in a rocking chair or glider. If the price tag is too steep, ask others to chip in and give it as a group gift.

Support for feeding time

Breastfeeding succeeds when a new mom gets the support she needs from those around her. It also helps if she’s comfortable.

A nursing pillow positions the baby properly and supports a mom’s back, arms, and elbows. Some models can also double as a back support for the baby as she learns to sit up.

A necklace that actually serves a baby-friendly function.

While dangling jewelry is generally a bad idea for new moms who have to avoid the strong grip of curious babies, these necklaces are actually meant for babies. The pendant, which is made from a non-toxic silicone material, doubles as a teething toy.

A spa treatment will help her unwind.

There’s no denying that being a new mom is a stressful experience. Help her unwind with a relaxing spa treatment, like a massage or facial. Book an appointment through a local spa or get her a gift certificate through a site like

    I loved your post. I have a couple of friends who are expecting their first child in a few weeks, so my family was considering different gift ideas.
    I especially liked the Baby necklace. It is suitable not only for new mothers, but also for mothers whose children are older 🙂
    Thank you for the nice suggestions for gifts.
    Have a lovely day

      Hi Ellie,

      You right about Baby necklace, My wife got it for a presnet when our first child born and she asked me to buy her this to to our second child.

      Have a great day too.

    I really like your site. Very interesting niche. I have a few fiends having babies soon and your article has definitely inspired me. I loved the pendant idea. I’m sure the mom to be will treasure this kind of gift forever. I also liked the spa idea. Nice read. Thanks.

    Hey Efi: What a fun read! These gift suggestions come in handy. It seems that a number of the young women I know are new moms now. And you are right…while baby is the best gift of all, moms like to feel cherished too.

    I am especially fond of your last gift suggestion — sleep. That is the hardest one for new moms. The little ones have their own schedules and they rarely include sleeping all night long. Maybe a book of handmade sleep coupons would be a very good thing….

    There are some nice “first time mom” items on your website. My oldest daughter is a mom for the first time. I book mark this page because soon I would like to get her a Personalized Baby Name Necklace and treat her to a spa for a massage. Thank you for reminding me that moms needs to be pampered sometimes as well.

  • What a great article. So many times, especially with first-time mothers, they are understandably overwhelmed. I especially love the personalized baby name necklace and treating the mothers to something that will pamper then and rejuvenate them such as a spa visit. LOVE the nursing pillow too. I wish I had had one of those wonderful things.

    This is a fantastic website. I love the layout, design. and ease of use.


  • I really loved the teething gift.
    It serves as a dual purpose thing, and both the mom and the baby will love it.

    Apart from that, I love the first one too. A personalised necklace is really sweet and moms would really love such a thing!

    One of friends is going to be a mom soon, and I will definitely gift her these two.

    Thanks for the article

  • I love this list, I wish I was expecting now. I have noted all the list.
    I’m sure no mom will ever forget a spa treatment. I will offer that as a gift to all new moms. Thanks
    I have always bought something for the baby not considering the mum
