Holiday 2014 Gift Guide: New Moms

The special gifts that new moms want, even if they haven't told you yet

Motherhood is a BIG transition for women, and if anyone is deserving of a special holiday gift, it’s them! It may be hard to decide what to get for a new mommy, but the last thing you want to do is pick out something that they won’t be able to use for themselves. Here are some great ideas for relaxing, entertaining and personalized gifts that new moms will love.

Eloise North Tahoe Sweater Robe, $188 US

A cozy robe is perfect for those cold winter mornings. New moms can wear this pretty sweaterknit around the house while spending time with baby, or throw it on when an unexpected guest arrives. With two side pockets and a tie closure, it’s a convenient piece of loungewear that can be worn throughout the chilly season.

Canon PowerShot ELPH 340 HS, $160

Babies grow up fast, and new moms are going to want to document the journey every step of the way. They will appreciate a new camera such as the Canon PowerShot ELPH 330 HS that takes vivid and detailed photographs, while being compact enough to throw in a purse during outings with the little one. It is easy enough to use for beginner photographers, but also has advanced modes and features should she choose to use them.

Turtle Love Co. Mother and Baby Elephant Necklace, $100

A symbolic piece of jewellery that celebrates a woman’s role as a mom will be cherished for years to come. We love this sweet necklace that depicts a baby elephant holding onto its mum’s tail, representing the bond between mother and child. Made from 100% recycled sterling silver, this special piece of jewellery is just as beautiful as it is resilient.

Spa Gift Certificate

Treat the new mom in your life to a much-needed (and desired) day at the spa with a gift card. Select a package that includes a variety of treatments, or choose a dollar amount so that she can have her pampering of choice. For the new moms who have been pressed for “me time” during those busy first few months with baby, this is a definite luxury that she will be happy to have.

Skip Hop Chelsea Downtown Chic Diaper Bag Satchel, $120

New moms don’t have to compromise their style with this beautiful satchel from Skip Hop featuring faux-leather detailing and gold metal zippers, and complete with twelve pockets, a changing mat and clip-on stroller straps. It’s sleek and stylish while still offering the functionality and space that a regular diaper bag would to store baby’s traveling necessities. Momma will able to use this bag way past the days of diaper changing and into the toddler years (and even for carrying her own belongings) and will be thankful for it!

Shhh… There's Wine In Here Coffee Mug, $18

Add some humour to a mom’s morning routine with this typographic ceramic mug. It’s a great gift for the coffee and wine lover, and pokes fun at a new mom’s hectic lifestyle. It’s dishwasher and microwave safe, so no additional care is required.

Fitbit Flex™ Wireless Activity + Sleep Wristband, $80

A fitness tracker like the Fitbit Flex™ can encourage new moms to be more active post-pregnancy. It tracks steps, distance and calories, and busy mamas won’t have to worry about putting it on and taking it off since it’s shower-proof. This tracker comes with a colourful wristband to match mom’s style, but there are others that clip on to clothing for those who prefer to use it solely for exercise.
