9 Great Gifts That Every New Mom Will Love

Put the focus back on mom this holiday by treating her (or yourself) to a thoughtful gift

Being a new mom is exhausting, and aside from wanting to take a long soak in the tub and have an uninterrupted sleep, what else can you offer her this holiday season? We’ve got a few ideas that will be much appreciated!

Hello Fresh meal delivery service is a life-saver for busy moms who still want to prepare a homemade, nutritious and tasty meal for the family. This subscription-based service offers different recipes each week that the user can pre-select. Then the fresh ingredients are delivered to your door including the recipe. Everything is ready to cook, saving valuable time and money. Plans include quick and simple recipes that can be prepared in under 30 minutes. There are also kid-friendly options. Gift cards are available for meal delivery for one week. We’ve tested out the service and recipes and love it for its delicious meals and portions. (Gift card for 3 meals for 4 people is $129.99). 

Kobo Aura One was made for us invincible moms who love to read. This particular eReader scores high on our list for its practicality. The latest edition is lightweight and offers an incredible battery for more reading hours. New moms will love the ComfortLight feature that protects eyes, especially good for bedtime reading (or middle of the night feedings) when you don’t want bright lights to interfere with baby. The natural light automatically follows the sun’s natural progression, or you can override that feature and set what’s comfortable for you. Plus this model is waterproof so when you take that soak in the tub…you won’t worry about taking it with you. Books can also be downloaded through the local library with the built-in OverDrive, so you have the option to borrow as well as buy. (MRSP: $249.99, other models available).

A TV subscription is an ideal gift for any new mom who is up at all crazy hours of the day and night nursing or tending to a baby that won’t go back to sleep. Truth be told, we get to catch up on some of the hottest shows that keep us sane at the next mommy-and-baby class (so we have something else to talk about other than spit up and poop stains). The beauty of Netflix is that you can watch shows and movies whenever you want and pause whenever you want. While you’re at it, check out comedian Ali Wong’s Baby Cobra. (Subscription gift cards available: $9.99 per month for standard service.) If they already have Netflix, why not get them Chromecast? Simply plug into your TV and access content from YouTube, Netflix or the Google Play store ($45 from Walmart).

FLO contact-free smart thermometer gives moms peace of mind when they need to take temperatures. This handy device helps take accurate readings in a split second without disturbing baby, which is especially handy now that cold and flu season is active. All you need to do is hold it within one inch and the gadget quickly lets you know the temperature. It’s paired with your smart device to keep track of temperature fluctuations and several members of your family. But it does more than help monitor fevers; it also works to check bath water or milk temperatures too. We’ve been pretty impressed with this handy device that can be taken anywhere ($49.99 USD).

Uniqlo's clothing line offers functional and durable clothes that don’t break the bank. This Japan-based label is known for offering clothing that suits everybody. The first thing that new moms discover they need is new clothing during this adjustment time. We love the ultra light down jacket that is ideal for quick errands and getting in and out of the car with baby fast. It’s warm without the bulk and the price point is so amazing, you may want more than one. ($59.90 USD). 


Olang Boots aren’t just any winter boots. They come with added grip options that are ideal for tackling icy surfaces. Simply adjust the bottom turn-key grips for when you need them. Given the way winter is going already, all new moms will want to stay sure-footed while out getting fresh air. Haven’t heard of them? This 25-year-old company offers styles that are lightweight, comfortable and warm. 

Tonic Blooms offers delivery of fresh flowers within a day or hours. Who doesn’t want a little joyful delivery of seasonal blooms that are perfect for the dinner table? Most of us would admit that flowers aren’t a priority these days with a new baby in the mix, but sometimes they do us a world of good. Some holiday arrangements come with our favourite Squish candy! 

L’Occitane Organic and Fair Trade Pure Shea Butter is 100% natural origin, organic, and extracted from wild kernels of Shea tree fruits. This enriching beauty balm helps protect, soften and regenerate dry skin as well as sensitive skin. It also supports sustainable and fair trade  efforts with cooperatives of women in Burkina Faso and adheres to Ecocert standards (150 ml $46). 


TOMS For One Another Transport Tote Bag is a stylish alternative for lugging your baby stuff around, whether it be on day outings or on vacation. Plus you know that with every TOMS product purchased you’re helping a person in need. The tote bags help provide a safe birth for a mother and baby in need under the company’s One for One program. Other colours available.($55 TOMS)
