6 Holiday Gifts for New Moms

December 10, 2018 Karminity Blog 24 Comments





As new moms, we enjoyed the mass amount of baby gifts we get, in celebration of our upcoming baby's birth or children that are already born. It is as though the kids have not only taken over our lives but our holidays too! Is it selfish to want a personal gift as the people who do the majority of the work, while the child is only baking? It’s easy for people to get more excited about the actual baby than the celebration with the people who made the baby. While we love the gifts that we receive for our children, it would be unexpected and very much appreciated to get a personal “mommy gift” as well.

What type of “mom” gift would we enjoy? Sometimes that's the hardest question. What does a new mom need? EVERYTHING! LOL! Seriously, anything that will make our job as mothers just a tad bit easier. Especially products that are unique and honor her as a mother is a winning and appreciated gift. Not pertaining to the baby of course, but something that we can call our own. Below is a list we compiled of a few items that'll make great gifts for new mothers. Be sure to click the names of the items to view the actual websites.




Breast Milk Jewelry


I had only heard about breastmilk jewelry a month ago, but I am so glad I did. I wasn’t aware of how left out of the loop I was, because the jewelry is becoming more and more popular.  This is such a unique and personal gift to give to someone and is a perfect gift for any holiday, anniversary, birthday, and more. It is unique because it uses your personal breastmilk to create the jewelry, so no two stones are the same. Precious Mammaries has multiple forms of breastmilk jewelry such as rings, earrings, bracelets, charms, and necklaces. The up-keep for this jewelry is very easy and the jewelry will last a while, so it’s something special to hold on to for a long time. Even if you're not a breastfeeding mother, you can also request other things be added to the jewelry to make it even more personal (engravings, dried flowers, gravel, sea shells, locks of hair, and sooo much more). This is such an amazing gift to give so, if you know a new mom that loves jewelry, she will love this personal style necklace.

Breast Milk Soap


To continue with the breast milk idea for breastfeeding mothers, a great and personal gift would be breast milk soap. Since becoming a new mom, all I do is research things that are beneficial and harmful for my baby and me. When you do research on how many benefits breast milk has, you will be just as shocked as I was. They do call it liquid gold for a reason. Clearing acne, eczema, scrapes/cuts, sore and chaffed nipples, just to name a few. Breast milk mixed with the other essential oils added to this bar of soap makes this a healthier alternative. When compared to a lot of the bigger brand soap companies' ingredients, you'll understand the necessity to choose this healthier route. You also have the option of adding honey, oats, or both. The soap comes in multiple designs that are so pretty, you might not even want to use the soap, but keep it on display for everyone to see. Precious Mammaries offers this vegan, non-GMO, and gluten-free soap as a perfect healthy gift for new mothers.





Carved Beeswax Candles


More carving ideas include beeswax candles that would be the perfect gift for a new mom. For the moms who are concerned about burning unknown chemicals around their house, this is a much healthier option. Beeswax candles are 100% natural and actual cleanses the air rather than putting toxins that pollute the air, instead. These beeswax candles take a much longer time to burn so they last much longer than the candles containing paraffin. The designs on the candles are so pretty that they could be used as decorations instead of burning them. This is such a subtle gift for new mothers but it benefits everyone in the household with its beautiful smelling fumes and creating healthier breathing air.





Spa Day


There is an extreme adjustment period after having a baby! If this is a first baby, any new mom has to take on the responsibility of an entire new life while managing her own. In my experience,  I'm no longer able to always put myself first. Don't get me wrong though! Prioritizing my baby makes me feel important. I feel like I have purpose, but it can become easy to lack on personal hygiene. I fail to complete my morning or night routine sometimes. I've definitely been struggling to keep my confidence up. It's all worth it when I remember the reason. Trying to be supermom all the time results in devoting most of my time to the little one. Even with a lot of deep breathing and stretching, I get SO stressed out. It gets to the point where I know I am building up too much stress, so I start stressing on how to relax! I bet any new mom can relate and would go bananas over a spa day! Groupon always has great deals on spas. You can even print off the confirmation so you don't miss out on gift wrap! If you don't want to tag along to a beautiful day of chill, try throwing in a cute handmade Free Babysitter coupon. A spa day is like gifting a little zen back to a new mommy.

Amazon Echo Dot


Let's be real; this would be an awesome gift for pretty much anybody! Imagine a personal assistant and a best friend that fits in the palm of your hand! The beauty of the Amazon Echo Dot is that it doesn't even need your hands! My hands are constantly occupied by my baby! She loves being held all day, every day! There's a good chance any new mommy would agree there is countless times throughout the day they need an extra hand. A quick "Hey Alexa, play white noise!" or "Hey Alexa, add diapers to my shopping list!" can really make the day go by easier. Alexa will get the job done. There are so many things you can ask her to do! This gift is super affordable in my opinion! Just make sure the recipient has a device that can download the Alexa app. As a new mom, I would jump at the chance to buy an extra hand, but the Amazon Echo Dot is the next best thing!

Crock Pot


The importance of getting all the necessary nutrients for a baby does not stop when the baby is born! Unless a mom chooses formula or is unable to breastfeed, the baby gets every single thing mom eats through the breast milk! The baby is depending on mommy to eat everything they need. Even if the baby drinks formula, the family can't starve and probably can't afford take-out every day! Once I became a mother, I found out instantly that I can't just pop up and cook whenever I want! Nap time and carriers only help but so much, A slow cooker is wonderful for bringing all the components of a meal together without the attention needed for multiple pots and pans! It is absolutely perfect for soup season and all other sorts of meals. (Side note: I think every season is soup season LOL.) So if mom can't take the heat, don't tell her to get out of the kitchen, get her a Crock Pot!
