Believe me, it used to be difficult and challenging for me too, in the past. To bring or come up with something that a new mom could find useful. But now I have quite figured out and finally, come up with very useful gift ideas for a new mom that she would love to have!

Since as a mom, I would also love to get those gifts 😀

Let’s dig into the unique and useful gift ideas for a new mom.

Spa Gift Basket/ Beauty Basket

After so much hustle of delivering a baby, those sleepless nights, milk-feeding sessions, messy hair-buns… a spa gift basket would be a great choice to gift to a new mom. You can select from a wide range of soothing and relaxing shower gels, aromatic soaps, comfy sponges, mani-pedi sets, and much more.

Similarly, a beauty basket containing soothing and moisturizing lotions, hand-creams, refreshing facial masks, fruity scrubs, soft cotton pads, a set of combs, and brushes would be a great treat!  

Suggestions: Spa Gift Basket with Honey Almond Fragrance, Spa Gift Basket Body and Earth Lavender Scented

However, you can add/subtract the things in the basket as per the choice and liking as well if you want to go for the customized one. Since she deserves this treat as well! A time to relax and feel special as well.

A Professional or HD Video Camera

A new mom always looks for the extra-ordinary and best ways to capture the precious moments of little ones into the frame. A high-definition or professional camera would be an excellent gift she can get! As she would be capturing hundreds of little priceless moments of her little one.

Since this gift could be a little expensive, you can pair-up with your friend, and you guys can bring out something amazing! Since a new mom wishes to save each moment with her newborn to cherish these memories later on when they grow up!

Comfortable Clothing Sets or Sets of PJs

Now, this is the gift that a new mom falls in love with immediately, haha! But seriously, a new mom keeps on running short of comfy suits and PJs, since all her pregnancy time clothes would not appeal as much good to her, and mostly she would prefer to spend the days with new-born in her comfy PJs.

A comfortable and pretty clothing set of T-shirts and trousers, or PJs, would be an amazing gift to her. Since most of the new moms prefer to roam around all day in the most comfortable post-pregnancy wears, she can.

It’s the best help she can get. You can bring along some prepared meal boxes – ready to eat. This would lessen her worry about preparing food and all. As she would be busy with the newborn, doing all the chores, and would be in a recovery phase.

Alternatively, you can make food delivery to her as well. In either way, that’s a sweet gesture plus a nice treat you can give to a new mom.

The born date and time, gender, features, their first activity, their fist walk, their pictures, their favorite things… and so much more.

Similarly, you can design your customized scrapbook for her. Alternatively, you can get one made on order also.


You can ask the new mom if she has got one, if not – Epilators could be a great gift. especially a new mom is unable to get much time for herself. Epilators can somehow fulfill her go-to-salon gap.
