30 Gifts For New Moms That'll Definitely Make Them Feel Loved
Finding the perfect gift for your friends or 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 gifting Gen Z to the luxury gifts on our wishlists.)
Today, we're 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 intent 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.
