Best Gifts For New Moms & Moms-to-Be
A baby is the ultimate gift, but these things are fun too.
Whether it be your wife, sister, bestie, (or even yourself) it can be hard to come up with the perfect gift for a new or soon-to-be mama. While it is easy to shower the little one with gifts, mom deserves to get spoiled too. With late night feedings and endless diaper changes, they are due for some relaxation and self-care.
The best gift for a new mum is whatever will make her job a tad easier. Below are a few things she can pamper herself with.
1. Lingua Franca Mama Knows Best Sweater:
From the woman-owned company, Lingua Franca, this 100% cashmere sweater is a dream. ‘Mama Knows Best’ is handstitched and meant to mimic the designer’s handwriting. These sweaters can also come with other fun sayings - such as “Here comes the sun”, “Who run the world?”, and “What would Dolly do?”
2. Lunya’s Pima Romper
Lunya CEO, super-mom Ashley Merrill, designed this romper with fellow moms in mind. Made with Pima cotton, it's perfect for days when you just don’t feel like getting out of bed. Pima cotton, which has longer threads versus regular cotton, is both lightweight and warm, making it an ideal fabric for lounging and napping.
3. Aether Felix Pant
Every mom deserves a better night’s sleep (and a cozy nap). These sweater pants are super cozy and dressy enough to be worn to the grocery store. Made with 100% cotton, you can look good while also being comfortable.
4. Felt+Fat Espresso Cups
The perfect glazed ceramic cup for your first, second, third, fourth, or whatever-number-you’re-on espresso shot of the day. The absence of a hole in the handle, makes the entire cup feel more dainty and unique.
5. Compartes Vegan Kale Healthy Dark Chocolate Bar
Because new moms want to be healthy— but they also want chocolate.
6. Compartes Dark Chocolate Coffee Crunch
What is better than chocolate? Chocolate that gives you an extra boost of energy, of course.
7. Jennifer Meyer Initial Necklace
This one is the ultimate push present. It is delicately handcrafted in 18-karat yellow gold and set with diamonds. It can also be layered with other necklaces in the collection. You can put their baby’s initial on it as a little homage to all her hard work.
8. True Botanicals Calm Nutrient Mist
A pregnancy-safe mist that can help calm, nourish, and hydrate momma’s skin. The perfect way to feel refreshed without having to worry about harsh chemicals. It’s not equal to a day at the spa, but it’ll help her feel a little more put together. It is naturally scented with herbal chamomile and neroli to calm the senses.
9. Nurture by Erica Chidi Cohen
This book is a great guide for first-time mothers. It goes into everything you need to know about pregnancy and birthing.

She is also the founder of LOOM, a center providing education and community for reproductive empowerment, pregnancy, and parenting for everyone.
