Unique Gifts to Surprise and Delight New Moms

Posted by Sarah Ruiz

If you have a new mom in your life, you want to get her a great gift — a unique and fun surprise that a mama bear will love instead of just another diaper bag. After all, the best gifts for first-time moms are practical as well as pretty. You’ll want something that makes her feel supported and special while waiting for her little one to arrive or while enjoying time together with her new baby. Ideally, you’ll want to give the new mother something that supports her throughout her pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum stages.

Whether you’ll be giving your new-mom gift at a baby shower or delivering it directly to the new parents, you’ll want to make sure it’s the perfect gift and that it truly delights the recipient. That’s why maternity and pregnancy subscription boxes make fantastic and unique gifts for new moms. These boxes can help a soon-to-be mom pamper herself, even when she’s up in the middle of the night caring for her baby. Because a new gift box is conveniently delivered each month, they remind new moms to take care of themselves, especially during the hectic time of their child’s first year. Plus, they make fantastic Mother’s Day gifts, too.

No matter what the new mama in your life loves, you can easily find a subscription box that will give her some much-needed and much-appreciated surprises each month. Read on to discover great gift ideas for new moms that are filled with keepsakes, self-care supplies, onesies she and baby will love, and much more.

Unique Gifts for New Moms: Get Pampered With Maternity & Pregnancy Subscription Boxes

Wouldn’t you love to surprise your favorite new mommy with a thoughtfully curated gift that treats her to supplies she needs as well as surprises she’ll love? Better yet, what if you want to safely give support to her throughout her pregnancy and afterward?

These thoughtful gifts are conveniently delivered, so the mom-to-be can enjoy her subscription box from the comfort of home — a bonus if she’s staying socially isolated during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Unique Gifts for New Moms: Shower Her with the Best Baby Shower Gifts

Baby showers are a wonderful way to celebrate a new mommy while giving her the items from her baby registry. However, if the items from your favorite new mama’s registry have already been ordered and you want to wow her with an amazing and unique baby shower gift, surprise her with a subscription box. Like those great baby shower gift baskets filled with breastfeeding supplies, diaper bags, and cute baby clothes, a new mom subscription box delivers baby and maternity supplies that are both fun and functional.

Another reason that a maternity and pregnancy subscription box makes the perfect baby shower gift: Unlike some baby shower gifts, the new parents don’t have to pick the gift box up from a store, put it together themselves, or find room for it in their already-crowded nursery. New baby supplies can take up a lot of room and can feel a little overwhelming for some new parents, while subscription boxes arrive once a month and the expectant mom and dad don’t need to find a place for them immediately after the shower.

Unique Gifts for New Moms: Sweet Self-Care for Two

Self-care is always important, but it can be especially important during the pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum stages for a new mother. You care about the mother-to-be in your life and want to make sure she’s taking care of herself as well as her little one and practicing whatever form of self-care works best for her.

A self-care subscription box is a thoughtful way to help a new mama make sure that she takes care of herself during this joyful but also stressful phase of life. These monthly boxes can help her relax, reflect, and rejuvenate, giving her the space to enjoy self-care tools she likes while also exploring new ones. Because the self-care box is delivered once a month, the new mama can use it to support her self-care practice regularly while looking forward with delight to the next month’s goodies. By giving her a subscription box, you can help her feel comforted and supported, even if you’re sending it from far away.

Unique Gifts for New Moms: Making Postpartum Easier

While the arrival of a little one can be filled with excitement and love, it can also bring unanticipated new challenges, such as postpartum depression. The postpartum stage of your friend or loved one’s pregnancy may be easier than she thought, but it could also be more difficult than she anticipated.

Cratejoy is honored to offer gift subscription boxes that specifically support new mothers during the challenges of the postpartum stage. For example, the Cater to Mom subscription box was created by a military veteran mom who experienced postpartum depression herself. She launched the monthly box to provide tools, resources, and education to support other moms experiencing the same condition.
