There's a strong possibility that no one needs self-care gifts quite as much as new moms do. A period of overwhelming joy, the blessing of a new baby also comes with an instant change to the routine, sleep deprivation, physical recuperation and plenty of mental and spiritual adjustment. Everything needs to shift around a little bit to welcome in this new bundle of joy.

To make the transition easier, we’ve put together a fantastic gift guide with plenty of monthly subscription boxes that make both practical and thoughtful gifts to help get her through baby's first year of life.
With a curated monthly subscription box that arrives right on the front doorstep, there’s no asking required. It offers her a gentle reminder that mom needs as much TLC as baby does. Read on for some of our best self-care gifts for new moms that are available here on the Cratejoy marketplace.
