Finding the perfect gift for your friends and family can be a stressful endeavor at the best of times, but we pride ourselves on being quite the experts at gift giving. (We've curated countless guides here on the site, from the guide on shopping for Gen Zers to the luxury gifts on our wish lists.)

Today, I'm focusing our attention on the best gifts for new moms. As you can guess, anything that encourages comfort and relaxation is a great option, as sleep is not something new parents get a great deal of throughout the first year. My sister is a new mom and picky about gifts, so I asked for her intel on the best gifts to get no matter the occasion. Items like diaper bags, strollers, and baby clothing were probably already checked off on the baby shower registry, so this is the time to get creative and thoughtful. 

 Ahead, enjoy my roundup of the 30 best gifts for new parents, from the elegant and quirky to the relaxation-centric. Three of my close friends are pregnant, and three are new moms, so I'll certainly be shopping this list myself.

Yusra Siddiqui is an editor who resides in New Jersey but bounces between the suburbs and NYC. (She's a Jersey girl at heart.) After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
