Whenever anyone I know needs to buy a new mom a gift – without fail – they come to me. 3 pregnancies in the past 4 years will do that to you. With so many people I know having babies, I figured it would be the perfect time to put together this little Gift Guide: For The New Mom. These gifts aren’t just for the holidays… really whenever someone you know has a new baby… this is where you’ll want to start!
Shop Emily’s Gift Guide: For The New Mom:
1.) Candles: Whenever I was first at home with the babies – I was obsessed with lighting candles in the room – right now this Sugared Birch candle is my absolute favorite – and that is why it is number one on my Gift Guide: For The New Mom !
2.) Luxurious Lotion: When your skin is getting back into shape, it is so nice to have a luxurious body lotion to slather on after a bath!
3.) The Butter Bra: This bra is exactly what it says – THE softest, best, nursing friendly bra – that isn’t a nursing bra.
4.) High Waist Leggings: These were and still are my favorite leggings to wear – postpartum. They hold you in and suck in your post-baby belly. I wear mine all the time so they had to make my Gift Guide: For The New Mom.
5.) HydroFlask: It is so important to stay hydrated in those early breastfeeding days and this waterbottle with the straw lid absolutely did the trick!
6.) Dry Shampoo: Washing my hair was pretty much the last thing on my To Do list in those early weeks. Having some GOOD extra dry shampoo on hand is SO amaizng!
7.) La Mer Lip Balm: THE most hydrating lip balm out there… it is SO luxurious… and it tastes amazing! The Gift Guide: For The New Mom just would not be complete without it!
8.) All Natural Skincare: This is my FAVORITE skincare line. The best part is that it is ALL NATURAL and you can safely use it while nursing your babe!
9.) Pillow Spray: This pillow spray smells divine, relaxes you, and helps you sleep more deeply. All amazing things for a new mom!
