When I became a mom for the first time, nothing delighted me more than gazing at the precious I had helped create. And while I reveled in my role as a new mom, that doesn't mean I stopped being me. That's an important thing to remember when you're shopping for a new mom. The new mom in your life will, of course, be appreciative of all the adorable goodies you pick out for her baby, but I bet she will be even more touched if you include a little something that's just for her.
Whether you need some last minute holiday gift ideas or you'll simply be shopping for a new mom in the near future, I've rounded up some of my favorite gifts for new moms...both for baby and mama herself! And they all have one common thread...a fabulous bag. Diaper bags don't have to look like diaper bags these days. Many of them are so chic, they can be carried long after diapers are a thing of the past. I went with black because it's just so darn versatile.
For the fashionista mom...You can't go wrong with the luxe, oh so chic, Charlotte + Asher bag. Even the most stylish mom will love this bag...And she'll also love this perfectly edgy baby outfit from Kardashian Kids and Posh Mommy bar necklace featuring her little one's initials. See? Something for baby and something for mama.
For the traditionalist mom...A classics lover will appreciate this tailored Spartina 449 bag. While it's not a diaper bag, it's perfect for short trips and will definitely fit a few diapers and travel wipes. I think it would be so sweet to pair this bag with a set of aden+anais X Petunia Pickle Bottom swaddle blankets. These two iconic baby brands have come together to create the most beautiful prints!
For the mom on the go...Us busy moms are often on the go all day long and having a large and in charge bag that can fit everything we need for us to get through the day with baby is clutch. The Petunia Pickle Bottom Downtown Tote fits the bill. And along that some convenience vein, Just Born's Wear a Blanket and Deluxe Swaddle will help mom get baby to sleep after a jam packed day. And we can't forget something pretty...Even the busiest mom catches a glance of herself in the mirror every now and again and any mom would love to see herself wearing Kay Jeweler's Miracle Links Necklace!
And if she's a babywearing fan, it's highly likely she's going to want more than one. A must try is the ACK WRAP. The soft, stretchy fabric makes baby feel safe and cozy, while also keeping mama comfortable. Even in the winter, those carriers can get HOT! And can we talk about the adorable print? It's totally gift worthy! Of course, I'm a sucker for a nice nautical stripe, but I digress...
