When you become a mom, your whole life shifts to revolve around someone else. You’ve spent months preparing for your little one’s arrival, been showered with baby gifts from friends and family, and had your health regularly checked-in on by your doctor.
And then suddenly, this little person is here, and it’s easy for new moms to feel like an afterthought. That’s why I love to give the new moms in my life something special that is just for them. As lovely as it is to receive a gift for your new baby, there is just something so meaningful when someone takes the time to see and celebrate you and your transformation into motherhood.
If you’re looking to celebrate a new mom in your life, check out our very favorite personalized gifts for new moms below.
After my firstborn arrived, a dear friend gave me this necklace with his birthdate engraved on it. It was the first new baby gift I received that was actually for me, and I cried at the thoughtfulness of the gift and specialness of the date on the necklace. I give this to all my new mama best friends now, and I love that you can add additional bars for additional kids.
Available in rose gold, silver, or gold, and with chain lengths of 18" or 20".
Most new moms probably already have their diaper bag ready to go by the time the baby arrives, but even after the diaper days are over, they'll still want a bag with lots of storage that's easy to clean. I love this lightweight tote that is also water-resistant and easy to wipe down in a hurry—huge perks for a mom on-the-go.
This dainty and stackable name ring is another one of my most favorite gifts ever. My mom gave one to me after my son was born, and then another when my daughter arrived, and I wear them daily. These are perfect to stack together or with other rings. I can't tell you how many compliments I've received on these.
Available in silver, gold, or rose gold.
New moms are up a lot in the middle of the night. Having a cozy and warm robe to throw on before heading to baby's room for a feeding/diaper change/snuggle session makes it just a little bit easier to handle amidst all the sleep deprivation.
Available in five colors and with the option to add a name or monogram.
These bracelets are the perfect everyday layering piece. Both high-quality and sturdy, you truly can't beat the price on this thoughtful gift if you're looking for something special that won't break the bank.
Available in 4mm or 6mm bead sizes in gold or silver. Option to select white beads with gold, silver, or black letters; or black beads with gold letters.
This is my favorite option for a more practical, but extremely useful, gift. New moms have a lot on their minds, and staying hydrated is important (especially for breastfeeding moms), but with so much time and attention going to the baby, it can be hard. My oldest is now 3 and a half, and I still carry my 30 oz Yeti tumbler with me everywhere to help keep me healthy and hydrated. If mine isn't filled with water, it's either hot or iced coffee, which this keeps warm/cold literally for hours. No more forgetting about my coffee in the microwave.
A letter necklace with the baby's initial is such a meaningful gift and something a new mom can wear everyday. This is one of my favorite initial necklaces because of the length of the chain (17" + 3" extender) and the small size of the pendant, which makes it perfect to layer with other favorite pieces of jewelry.
For the wine lover in your life, these custom new mom milestone labels add a fun and thoughtful touch to some of the everyday celebrations new moms go through, like first date night without baby or first night out with the girls. Customize with the new mom's first name and baby's birth year, along with the label border and background colors. You can also select anywhere from 4-12 labels with milestone options like baby's first birthday, first diaper explosion, first day back at work, and more.
A birthstone bracelet with mom-and-baby's birthstones is another thoughtful way to shower someone with some new mom love. These bracelets come with up to 6 gems per bracelet, so they are perfect for a new mom or a mom of multiples. Their dainty size also makes them perfect to layer together if more children arrive down the line.
Available in gold, silver, or rose gold, and in lengths of 5.5"-6.5", 6"-7" or 6.5"-7.5".
