I remember my first Christmas after having my son. I didn't know which end was up, and I was exhausted. I received a ton of gorgeous, meaningful Christmas presents that I still cherish to this day, but looking back, I don't remember receiving anything that wasn't attached to my new role as mom. It is so great to give all of these personalized gifts, but it's also important to remember that new moms are also just people who might need and want things separate from their children. These holiday gifts for new moms are things they'd never ask for themselves, but are honestly so necessary.
The first year of having a baby flies by in a whirlwind, and new moms need all the support they can get as they learn how to navigate their new lives. Sometimes, the new mama might need something material, like a cushion for their sore downtown or a glass of wine (also for their sore downtown), but sometimes, they might just need a night out alone, or someone to walk quietly beside them as they talk out their frustrations and worries as a new mom.
If you have kids, you know how tough those first months are. Help a mother out, and try one of these fab gifts.
