The Fashionable Housewife - Mothers Day Gift Guide for New Moms

Mother's Day Gift Guide for New Moms

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and it’s the perfect opportunity to show the moms in your life how much you appreciate them. If the special mom in your life has a baby or young child, consider giving a gift that will make her life easier and more comfortable. Here are some Mother’s Day gift ideas that will make a new mom beam!

Diaper bags are an essential item for any new mom. They help to keep all of the baby’s essentials organized and easily accessible. Consider getting a stylish and functional diaper bag that the mom in your life will love. Look for one that has multiple compartments, insulated bottle holders, and a changing pad. Some great options include the Skip Hop Diaper Bag, JuJuBe Diaper Bag, and the Honest Company Diaper Bag. Personally, I’m a die-hard JuJuBe fan and own several of their diaper bags and I keep using them long after my youngest is out of diapers.

Baby Carriers

Baby carriers are a great way for moms to keep their hands free while still keeping their baby close. Look for a carrier that is comfortable, adjustable, and safe for the baby. A great option for new moms is the Dragonfly™ Wrap from LÍLLÉbaby. It’s a great option for new moms because this carrier it’s as easy as putting on a t-shirt!

Best of all, the Dragonfly Wrap is made with luxuriously soft, naturally sourced fibers that are comfortable and gentle on baby’s skin. A smooth and wonderfully detailed back panel is supportive and to evenly distribute the baby’s weight making it comfortably support most shapes and sizes, 00-24.

Available in versatile colors including Bluestone, Black, Moss, Vintage Rose, and my personal favorite, Butterscotch. Grab one on Amazon or Target.

Every mom wants their baby to have a comfortable and cozy place to sleep. Consider getting a set of high-quality sheets or a cozy blanket that the mom in your life can use in their baby’s crib or bassinet. Look for bedding that is soft, breathable, and easy to clean. Some great options include the Aden + Anais Muslin Sheets, Burt’s Bees Baby Organic Cotton Sheets, and the Pottery Barn Kids Cozy Blanket. I also love to gift a special baby swaddle from Little Unicorn because their swaddles or so soft, unique, and beautifully packaged.


Another must-have for new mommas is a couple of really good swaddles. Not just cute blankets, but actual swaddles that can be used for the first 3 months of a baby’s life to make the transition from the womb to the real world a little easier. The Butterfly Swaddle is a great option for this as their swaddle accommodates all the stages of swaddling in one easy-to-use product. The Butterfly Swaddle also features patented mesh “wings” under the sleeves to slow the baby’s startle reflex and the removable wrap features a “silent Velcro” hook and loop material that enables caretakers to adjust the wrap’s snugness without waking the baby or scratching their delicate skin. With 10 different colors to pick one, The Butterfly Swaddle is a no-brainer when it comes to a gift for a new mom.

As the weather starts to warm up, an inflatable pool can be a great way for the mom in your life to cool off and spend time with their little one. Look for a pool that is easy to set up, safe, and durable. Some great options include the Intex Easy Set Pool, Bestway Steel Pro Pool, and the Summer Waves Quick Set Pool.

If she has a pool or plans to visit the beach, an inflatable floating car would be fun for both her and her new baby! The Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Inflatable Floating Car would be a fun choice!

Original Sprout is a leading hair and skincare company that boasts products that are vegan, cruelty-free, and only made with safe, non-toxic ingredients! Their line of products are suitable for people of all ages, but their “Bundle of Joy” gift set containing some of their most popular items for use on babies and infants, is perfectly suited for young mothers and would make a lovely Mothers’ Day gift for a pregnant mama or new mom!
