Collagen Peptides Protein Powder
Being a mom is HARD WORK and takes a toll on your body. Moms are exhausted and depleted, and their physical health often takes a back seat to everything else in their lives. Be a good friend and get your friend some Collagen Peptides Protein Powder to help her improve her health. She can put it in her morning smoothie or coffee and reap the benefits. (Naked Nutrition also has cookies and pancake mixes!). While this may not be the traditional gift you give a new mom, it will definitely show that you care!
The Ayla Vacuum
I love my Ayla vacuum! All moms know how many little messes we encounter daily, which is exhausting. This little travel vacuum is perfect for keeping in your car (for the spilled cheerios) or near your desk (so you can vacuum the crumbs that you spilled while eating lunch in working), or near your stroller (so you can clean up those crackers that were left there).
Gift idea for a new parent! A new mom’s outing wouldn’t be complete without a gorgeous LoveHeld Baby Carrier! Chic and so on-trend, the beautiful colors of these slings blend effortlessly with neutral colors and complement every season’s fashions, too! A busy mom of five created the brand, sewing each item herself at home. So rest assured, they took care when crafting every item to be gentle on babies, moms, and the environment.
Riff Raff Baby
Give your new mom friend the gift of sleep this year! The portable, washable sound machine lovey offers white noise with a heartbeat and a specially designed sleepy lullaby! Through the use of sound, comfort, and routine, these toys support babies and toddlers in falling asleep and resettling. Let me tell you- this lovey is ADORABLE, and anything you do to help a mom sleep will be the best gift they ever get!
Lip Balm Holder
ATRAC keeps your keys and cell phone right where they are supposed to be, so you don’t have to spend minutes rummaging through your purse digging for your keys while your children throw tantrums at the grocery store. At least, that is how the founder came up with the idea. She could not take one more tantrum in public while she emptied her purse, digging for her keys to put her daughter into the car and leave the store without more mortification. Sound familiar? Even if you can’t relate, your new mom friend will love you for this budget-friendly gift!
Silicone Educational Stacking Cups
Babies need toys, and moms love keeping their kids entertained! This woman-owned business creates educational toys, beach toys, gardening sets, and more! The brand grew out of the need for better baby and toddler products, starting by transforming the standard snack cup into the Snack Attack, Amazon’s #1 collapsible silicone snack cup and the original in this category. I love their stacking cups and nesting doll set.
Moveo Yoga Mat
Have a mom friend who loves fitness? Help her keep her mojo with a Movéo (moo-vay-oh!) product! T The brand’s products include resistance bands, disc sliders, exercise mats, towels, and more which come in various fun designs like pizza or sprinkles. Not only will your new fitness accessories stand out in a crowd, but they built everything to last. Together, Movéo wants to make fitness fun.
The simple things in life make a difference in our day-to-day interactions with our kids as they grow up so quickly. This mirror will help your mom friend create memories with her baby even while pushing her in the stroller. With the Looky Lou, parents can now connect and engage with children in a forward-facing stroller! It’s a great holiday gift for new or expecting parents.
Skin Essentials Co.
With all the hard work that moms do, they deserve a little pampering that goes above and beyond your regular body creams and lotions (although those are appreciated too!)
The Essentials is the answer to minimizing the appearance of aging, acne, and other ailments, resulting in smoother-looking skin. You’ll find no harmful ingredients, synthetic fragrances, parabens, or sulfates in the dermatologist-tested offerings. Instead, the clinical ingredients provide antioxidant protection, address the signs of aging, and neutralize free radicals.
This inclusive skincare brand for children is long-lasting, locking in moisture for deep dehydration. Melabébé delivers that relief in plant-based formulas intentionally made for melanin-rich kids that are safe enough for the entire family for the head, shoulders, knees, and toes (just like the song goes!). Understanding their specific needs and skin characteristics makes all the difference in helping provide appropriate, gentle care.
Founded by Kelli, a mom of color, she formulated clean, moisture-rich skincare initially to help nurture her baby’s sensitive skin. She found it was also perfect for all skin types and shades. It turns out that what’s good for the baby is just as good for mom and dad, too! The vegan brand’s all-natural ingredients nurture, heal, and protect. Your new mom friend would love a gift box for her and baby!
If you have a little more money, a Kindle is a perfect gift for any new mom. Sitting and feeding a baby can be tedious, and the lightweight Kindle is a great way to keep mom entertained easily! I love my Kindle and encourage everyone to get one!
You can download books easily from Amazon or even check them out of the library for free whenever you want. A Kindle is almost a necessity for any bibliophile. The Kindle Paperwhite is easy on the eyes (much better than reading on a phone or a tablet) and easily adjustable font size for easy reading.
All these make amazing gifts for any occasion for all the moms in your life. Whether they have a new baby, you are heading to a baby shower, a holiday is coming up, or just because you feel like showing your love, your friends will enjoy every single item on this list!
