Gifts for moms that just gave birth:
Finding the perfect Christmas gift for a brand-new mom can be challenging. She's probably stocked full of baby clothes, diapers, and wipes from her baby shower, and her baby is too young to enjoy playing with toys, so it can be tricky to narrow down what exactly she'd appreciate.
Postpartum recovery essentials.
For a mom that's just given birth, postpartum healing is probably at the forefront of her mind. Why not spoil her with some helpful postpartum items? Any new mom will love a friend that cares about her health and well-being!
The KeaBabies Revive 3-In-1 Postpartum Recovery Support Belt comes in multiple colors and is ergonomically designed for optimal postpartum healing. The stomach belt prevents sagging and reduces swelling, the waist belt supports the lower back for breastfeeding, and the pelvic belt helps return the hips to their pre-pregnancy position. It is comfortable, breathable, and machine washable, and is available in many different colors and sizes.
The KeaBabies Soothe Nursing Pads are an amazing gift for breastfeeding moms. These reusable, natural nursing pads fit in the bra and help prevent leakage. They come in a gift set of 7 pairs, one for each day of the week! They are also machine washable and dryer friendly.
Self-care can easily go out the window when you're spending every minute of every day caring for the needs of a newborn baby. All moms deserve to be spoiled! She'll love a comfy robe, a new pair of slippers, a cute new stainless steel water bottle, a sweet picture frame (like the KeaBabies Heartfelt Picture Frame), or a tea or coffee set.
A unique gift for the baby.
Every new mom loves to spoil her baby, so gift her with something unique for her precious new addition. Get her a luxurious sleep sack, a stylish new outfit set, a pack of cute accessories, or a set of bottles or pacifiers. Homemade gifts are even more special - she'll never forget the sweet gesture of a hand-knit baby hat, a personalized baby blanket, or another type of homemade gift.
The KeaBabies Soothe Swaddle Wraps make the perfect gift for a newborn. These soft, breathable swaddles are made from organic cotton and come in a variety of patterns. It is super easy to swaddle a baby in these wraps, and they come in a sustainable gift box!
Gifts for moms who need pampering:
One of the best Christmas gifts for a mom is something that makes her feel pampered. Self-care is so hard to come by as a parent of young kids, but everyone deserves to be pampered!
Consider buying her a super plush robe or blanket. Wintertime can mean months of cold weather, so why not give her something she can wrap herself in while she enjoys a hot cup of coffee and her favorite tv shows?
Another gift she'll appreciate is a subscription box or service. If she loves to cook, consider gift her a subscription to monthly produce deliveries, meal kit services, or seasonal cooking classes. If she enjoys reading but can't find enough time to sit down and read a book, get her a subscription to her favorite magazine. There are so many subscription boxes to choose from, for everything from workout gear, to wine, to makeup, to clothes, to food, to coffee, to home decor. Any of these would make an excellent gift!
You can also create a customized DIY spa day basket and fill it with pampering must-haves like sugar scrubs, a face mask, nail polish, false eyelashes, tanning lotion, lip balm, a silk pillowcase, a hair mask, a scented candle, massage oil or essential oils, and soft, cozy slippers.
Gifts for a mom who loves to be on the go:
The KeaBabies Baby Wrap Carrier is the perfect Christmas gift for a mom who is always on the go. Great for both home use and outings, this soft, breathable baby wrap is perfect for long periods of babywearing. The wrap helps distribute a baby's weight so that there isn't any added pressure on a mother's back and shoulders. Her baby will stay cozy and peaceful as she nestles close to mom's body. The wrap helps keep the baby warm during cold winter months, but is lightweight enough be worn during the summer. The Baby Wrap Carrier comes in a gift box and contains a travel pouch as well.
Another great gift for moms on the go is the KeaBabies Baby Food Storage Glass Containers. These jars come in sets of 12 and are perfect for making, storing, and traveling with baby food. These jars can easily fit in a diaper bag and can be reheated in the microwave or in warm water. They are leakproof and fit well into any mom's diaper bag for on-the-go mealtimes.
For a mom who loves to be out and about, consider getting her a great lightweight umbrella stroller. These can easily fit in the trunk for quick errands, traveling, or short walks. If price isn't a factor, consider gifting her with a jogging stroller or a great stroller wagon.
Every mom needs a great purse or wallet to take along on outings. From belt bags to backpacks and everything in between, any mom would appreciate the gift of a new purse!
One of the best Christmas gifts for a mom on the go is a phone stand or charging port. She'll appreciate this gift that will help her keep her phone battery charged at all times while she's out and about. For a mom who's always out on some adventure, a portable charger or car phone stand can be a useful, special gift.
