Gift Ideas for New Moms

Finding the perfect gift ideas for new moms in your life can be extremely challenging! To make it easier, I've curated a list of special gifts for a new mom-to-be that she is going to love!

Gift ideas for new moms

Giving handmade is a great way to show someone you care, so I've curated a list of adorable presents for new moms! Let these ideas inspire you to find the perfect gift for that upcoming baby shower! 

Idea 1: Handmade Baby Blanket

Handknit baby blankets are an amazing gift idea for new moms! They will need so many baby blankets in the first few months, from beautiful ones to take gorgeous photos of their new addition to truly useful ones they can just throw in the washing machine.

My personal favorite baby blanket is the elephant baby blanket! This was a custom design for a mommy-to-be as she decorated her baby's nursery with elephants. It's also available as a custom design to fit any nursery, from sailboats to animals to musical notes! 

Idea 2: Handknit Christmas Stockings

Christmas is one of the most fun seasons to celebrate with your new baby, so help the new mom get ready with beautiful, handknit Christmas stockings.

These make great gifts because it is a tradition she will keep for years to come. Every time she celebrates Christmas, she will think of you and your wonderful gift to her family!

I even have a simple gift-giving option for my Christmas stockings that allows you to purchase the stockings without choosing the design. Simply purchase the giftable Christmas stockings, and they can choose their own stocking design and names and input their own shipping address. It's the easiest gift-giving process you can find!

Idea 3: Adorable stuffies for kids

You can also gift an adorable, handmade stuffed animal to use with their new baby! You can theme the stuffy for their nursery to add a handmade touch or maybe gift her an animal she adores (like a bee/yellow jacket to a Georgia Tech fan)!

There are so many amazing snuggly stuffies to choose from, so this gift idea for new moms is an easy score!

Idea 4: Luxurious scarf or hat

It's important to spoil a new mom with things for herself too, like a luxurious, handmade merino wool or cashmere scarf. This gift idea focuses on her beyond just her new role as a mom and will make her feel special and appreciated.

Idea 5: Comfy, soft shrug

Lastly, a soft, snuggly shrug is the perfect gift for a new mom because she will wear it all the time! She needs something to pull on before she goes on a walk with the stroller or to snuggle into when she's nursing on the couch. A shrug will quickly become one of her most-used presents!


New moms have so much placed on their shoulders, so it's important to find the perfect gift, especially if it's handmade! Hopefully, these gift ideas for new moms stir up your creativity!

Act fast though, handmade requires time, so buy your gifts now!
