I guess it’s just the season of life that I’m in, but right now I have multiple close friends who are expecting a baby soon! One of my closest friends is actually being induced THIS Saturday! EEEKKK!!! The number of baby showers I’ve been to of late is staggering, and I’ve got invites right in front of me for even more. While checking a momma-to-be’s registry is always a good idea, sometimes I like to come up with a few of my own gift ideas. (One of my favorite “personalized” things to do these days is create wallpaper or stickers for her with one of her photos!) But I feel like I’ve been running out of original inspiration lately!
So when Anna from AnnaVasily.com.au asked me if she could share some ideas with me (and all of you) I thought it was just perfect timing! Take a few minutes ands her suggestions below!10 + Practical and Stylish Gift Ideas For the New Mother's Home! #giftsformom Click To Tweet
How exciting it is to expect a new member in your family! However, no one is more thrilled than the future mom. She has the greatest joy of keeping the baby close to her heart and the greatest responsibility to protect both the child and herself. Show her how meaningful she is with a thoughtful present. Here are some ideas for both decorative and baby related items that will make her feel special and appreciated when she’s at home.
Get inspired by the following ideas!
Family photo frame
Since the family is growing, she`ll need to create more space for placing new memories at home. A frame for multiple photos is a perfect way to prepare for the new family experiences.
Price range: $4 – $10
Combine a simple gesture of kindness with something fancy and stylish. Like a dessert in a beautiful designer cup. The cup is art by itself, but it just goes better with something sweet.
Price range: $150 – $259
A nice warm nap is a dream gift (literally)! And who needs to rest more than a future mother? Give her a snuggly blanket, secure her silence and let the sweet dreams in!
Price range: $100 – $200
Skin Care products
During pregnancy the skin stretches and needs more hydration than ever. Skin oils and lotions prevent stretch marks and keep your loved woman’s skin soft and healthy.
Price range: $55 – $60
Bundle of treats
You can‘t decide between chocolate, candies and nuts? The answer is pretty simple. Just give her everything and we promise she won’t complain at all.
Price range: $40 – $80
A perfect gift for a lady with a sense of humor. Hasn’t she told her relatives she is expecting a baby? Well, this T-shirt speaks for itself. Besides, every woman has been in the “I have nothing to wear” situation. A t-shirt is always useful.
Price range: $10 – $30
Oh, and here’s a funny husband t-shirt, as well, if you fancy a matching set!
Something little, pretty and meaningful to remind her you think of her and her child. Like this double heart pendant, representing her and the baby.
Price range: $50 – $100
Bedtime Story Books
We are all just grown children. And who doesn’t love a bedtime story? Babies sure do – even the still-not-born ones. One thing is for sure – fairy tales should never be forgotten.
Price range: $10 – $50
Sophie, the giraffe
Sophie is probably the most popular giraffe in the world. It is a great gift for both boys and girls, and therefore for moms who are expecting them.
Price range: $10 – $20
CD’s with classical music
Studies show classical music has an amazing influence on baby’s development. Whether the so-called “Mozart effect” is a true or not, Mozart’s music is still genius. It is one of those things you just can’t go wrong with.
Price range: $10 – $20
Bubbling bath salts, essential oils, scented candles, soft towels and light music… After one of those sessions she is going to feel freshened and relaxed. You could find home spa sets in every pharmacy or beauty shop. By the way Mozart goes fine with those too.
Price range: $20 – $40
Therapeutic air diffuser
Freshens and aromatizes the air at home with essential oils. Could be used for meditation and relaxation.
Price range: $40 – $50
Essential item from every mother’s arsenal. Even if she doesn’t need it right now, she will be thankful for it in just few months.
Price range: $75 – $90
Baby’s room decoration
Help her decorate the baby’s room with toys and accessories or combine them both with a cute stuffed pillow for example.
Price range: $20 – $40
A picnic could be a romantic experience for two, but also a great outside activity for the whole family after the baby is born. Even in the city park.
Price range: $30 – $50
