The Milestone Edit: 30 Thoughtful Gift Ideas For New Moms

Picking out a thoughtful and useful gift for a new mom is easier said than done. 
Celebrating a new arrival is the perfect moment to gift something memorable to a mom (and the baby too!). We did the hard work for you by rounding up some of our favorite gifts for new moms that are foolproof picks for the milestone occasion. And, we asked Team SN's newest mom (Meghan!) to share her tried-and-true suggestions as well. Read on for every idea!

Gift Something Thoughtful to Mom and Baby

Treating both mom and baby with the same gift is a natural starting point when shopping for a new parent. Whether it's adorable matching sweaters (these Ralph Lauren flag ones are utterly swoon-worthy!) or a luxe Hermès blanket and feeding pillow, a gift that benefits mom and baby is never a bad idea. 

Splurge on a Luxe Push Present for Mom

Push presents are a relatively new trend that we love here at SN. Splurge on a beautiful, customized necklace with her new baby's name in diamonds, like this one by Sue Gragg, or gift a classic Van Cleef & Arpels bracelet that she'll cherish forever. For a fashionable pick, you can't go wrong with a colorful Carolina Bucci bracelet.

Give a First Time Mom Something Special

Welcoming your first child is a major milestone–which means it's perfectly appropriate to give a first-time mom something special. The wonderful world of baby gear is new for the first time mom, so gifting supremely useful products like a Babybjörn baby bouncer or a DockATot lounger is always a good idea. If you're looking for a splurge, give the gift of Chanel: the designer's shopping tote doubles as a diaper bag. For the skincare-minded mama, Hatch's beauty essentials kit will give her everything she needs for her daily routine.
