Offer to Do Some Housework
If you have some spare time, why not offer to help out and do some housework? Taking care of a newborn is a tremendous task. Most new moms spend most of their time taking care of their baby and don’t get much sleep. Having a friend or a relative come over to do the dishes, vacuuming, washing, ironing or whatever can be a big help.
Food Delivery or Take-out Gift Certificate
It’s not easy for new moms to get out of the house and enjoy a meal at their favorite restaurant. So, if you want to give a new mom a break, you could offer her some gift certificates for food delivery or take-out. She’ll certainly appreciate a nice restaurant meal without having to do the groceries or cook.
Just because new moms don’t often get out of the house doesn’t mean they don’t need any clothes. New clothes that make them feel good about themselves are an excellent gift idea. Choose loungewear outfits that are stylish enough to receive guests at home, but comfortable enough to lay down with their baby for breastfeeding.
Postpartum Care Kit
Here’s another gift idea that’s perfect for new moms. You can choose a cute basket and fill it up with postpartum products like witch hazel pads, nipple cream, body lotion, a luxurious hand cream and under-eye gel pads. To complete your gift, you can even offer to take care of the baby while the new mom enjoys a nice hot bath and pampers herself with her new care products.
Most new moms can find it challenging to take care of their new baby and do house chores at the same time. New moms also need every minute they can get to rest up. A robotic vacuum is a gift that can really make their lives easier and allow them to enjoy a nap while the baby is asleep. All they need to do is press the on button and let the robotic vacuum take care of the rest.
Sterilizer and Dryer
The arrival of a new baby means more things to be washed and sterilized such as bottles, pacifiers, plates and utensils. Instead of washing everything by hand, a sterilizer and dryer can lessen the new mom’s workload and allow her to have more time for her and her new baby. This gift idea is a real time saver and will give new moms peace of mind in knowing that their baby’s items are perfectly sterilized and clean.
Diaper and Wipe Subscription Service
Diapers and wipes are always much needed items by new moms. There are a lot of companies that will deliver diapers and wipes directly to your door at the frequency that you want, so a subscription would make the perfect gift. This will avoid new moms from having to rush to crowded supermarkets during the day or even in the middle of the night since they can easily plan their diaper supply until the next shipment.
A trip to the spa
After several weeks of being a new mom, some may have forgotten what it’s like to enjoy some time for themselves. Yet, all new moms will love spending an afternoon at the spa to pamper themselves. You can offer to babysit or arrange for a babysitter while the new mom relaxes and recharges her batteries for an afternoon or even a whole day at the spa.
