New motherhood is quite a time for a lady. Often we arrive at a new mama’s home with gifts in hand for the baby, but we fail to acknowledge the rite of passage for the mother herself adequately. I put together a short list of thoughtful items that would rightfully make a new mother feel loved and comforted during those early moments of momming.
2.) Spoonful of Comfort. Elegantly packaged comfort soups, rolls and cookies along with a pretty keepsake label make this an ultimate new mama gift, especially from afar.
3.) Coffee and Wine. I mean, duh. The biggest cliches of mom life exist for a reason.
4.) This candle (in the Volcano scent) is beautiful and it’s probably not something she’d buy herself right now. The scent is one of my absolute favorites- a little bit minty and a little bit citrus. Total mood-elevator, which brings me to my next recommendation…
5. ) This diffuser (I own two), coupled with a few quality essential oils. This is the ultimate new mama gift, as diffusing essential oils is great for babies as well as for us. Along with improving our moods and making our homes smell nice, it’s a pretty piece that adds to the aesthetic of the home and can help aid in many issues such as sleeplessness and irritability, as well as many ailments for both babies and adults. I’m personally a DoTerra fan. If you’re looking to learn more about oils, you can contact my “dealer” Nicole at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PS- Peppermint and Wild Orange oils smell exactly like the Volcano candle mentioned above! I diffuse them together all the time.
What was the best gift you received as a new mother?
