Sharing my gift guide for your wife / partner / daughter / friend / loved one who just carried and delivered a human life into this world!  My New Mom Push Presents and Holiday Gift Guide includes gift ideas for various price ranges to make sure your new mama feels the love this holiday season – she deserves it!

 

To Commemorate:

A piece of jewelry is something that she can keep forever and perhaps wear daily to keep her tiny loved one close to her heart.  My favorite jewelry pieces for the new mom include styles with the birthstone of her new baby or the little one’s initials (you can also include the birthstone/initials for her additional children or partner).

 

Gold Bar Necklace:

This style comes solid but you can take it to a professional monogrammer and have the initials etched in.

Similar Option:

 

Personalized Initial Necklace:

 

Delicate Birthstone Ring:

 

 

To Document:

Your favorite new mama will want to document this exciting time in her life.  Capture the moments with a new DSLR camera, a journal, phone, computer, photo prints and frames, or you could even set up a special photo session with a local photographer.

To Sweat it Out:

Some new moms really look forward to sweating out their stresses after childbirth.  Personally, one of my favorite motivators to start a sweat is some fresh gear.  For apparel, my favorite athletic apparel shops are GapFit and Lululemon.  For the running mom, a fresh pair of running shoes is a great motivator or a running stroller is mutually beneficial to her and her new little one.  You could also purchase training sessions with a trainer at her local gym.

Athletic Apparel:

 

Running Shoes:

These are my go-to running shoes.  But keep in mind each runner is different, so you may have to do some stealthy research to figure out her favorite running shoe.

 

Running Stroller:

 

Training Sessions with Local Trainer:

Most gyms have trainers on staff for hire, if she is already a member of a gym.  Otherwise, you can do some research to find a local trainer for home visits.

 

To Style:

If your new mom is anything like me, she’s been living in sweats and stretchy pants not only in her postpartum days but also for many months of her pregnancy prior.  Help her feel stylish again with a wardrobe update from her favorite brand or store.  If you’re not sure of her style or size (it may have recently changed), gift cards are a great option – and it gives her a good excuse for online shopping!  (Tip: You can look for stores (like asos.com, Seraphine, Hatch Collection, or A Pea In The Pod) that carry stylish nursing tops if she is a breastfeeding mama.)

 

Wardrobe Refresh:

 

 

To Refresh:

Of course every mama could use some pampering!  You could gift her a special spa service (think manicure/pedicure, facial, or massage) at a local nail salon/spa/resort.  Or gift her something a little luxurious to enjoy at home.  You could also donate your time to help her by watching her little one, cooking or bringing her dinner, or helping her clean or run errands.

A Future Vacation:

Perhaps it’s a bit too soon to travel with a little one now, but you can always plan for the future!  Personally, I love looking forward to a future vacation (it gives me something to day dream about).  A few of my favorite websites to checkout hotels and rentals on are hotels.com, Airbnb.com, and VRBO.com.

And don’t forget a cool carry on travel bag!:

 

 

I hope this list helps pamper your favorite mama!  Follow me on Instagram @metzlarocca.
