How to Find The Perfect Gift For Mom

There are a lot of reasons—and occasions—to celebrate new moms and moms-to-be. Whether it's at a cake cutting for a gender reveal, a baby shower, or a welcome-home gathering, you can show her some love with a thoughtful gift for her and baby. If you're not sure where to start, here are some tried-and-true ideas.

Ready to Wear

You can't go wrong with clothing—it's a fun and fashionable gift for mom and baby, and is appropriate no matter the occasion.

  1. A pregnant mom can still be chic. Check out the maternity line Egg by Susan Lazar for stylish and comfortable pieces. If you're not sure what items she may need, the Bump Survival Kit is a can't-miss set with on-trend leggings and two tops. From there, she can layer with pieces that can transition from day to night, giving her wardrobe some much-desired versatility. Keep in mind that moms still turn to their maternity clothes after giving birth, so she'll appreciate effortless options that help her feel put together as she settles into life with the baby.
  2. Peek into her closet and get to know her favorite designers. And then see if you can coordinate with a new outfit for the baby. If she loves Kate Spade or Marc Jacobs—voila!—they have baby lines. Or does she prefer Stella McCartney’s funky look or Janie & Jack’s prep classics? No matter her tastes, there are baby clothes to suit it, giving her new mini-me a stylish start to life.
  3. Yes, all baby clothes are cute—but is there anything more adorable than a pair of tiny shoes? Shoes may not be at the top of the shopping list for moms focused on stocking up on diapers and onesies—which is why they make a perfect gift. Moms won't be able to resist seeing their baby's first shoes, and your choices are endless. Options range from spunky Mini Melissa to classic Elephantito to sweet Bloch. You can even get baby their first Dr. Martens. And if they're not quite ready for Hunter rain boots, the brand makes cozy boot socks to keep baby warm.
  4. A classic gift is the layette set. Make sure you select high-quality materials that will hold up to many washings and be comfortable against a newborn's skin. You can't beat KicKee Pants and Splendid when it comes to softness and ease of wear.

Treasured Keepsakes

Sweet mementos that help capture this special time are perfect presents. If you've already ordered and shipped a registry gift, but want to have something in hand for the shower, there are many thoughtful ideas that will tug at mom's heartstrings.

  1. Here's a guarantee: there will be a lot of pictures during baby's first year. Moms love capturing all of the firsts and then some. A beautiful frame will let mom beautifully display her favorite moments. And if she's a working mom, get her a second frame so that she can have a nice reminder of home while at the office.
  2. Moms won't forget a baby's first smile and first steps. But help them document those milestones with a baby book. Not only will those amazing moments be forever captured in photos and words, but it'll be a nice thing to share with the baby when they get older.
  3. After mom has counted her newborn's 10 little fingers and 10 little toes, you can help make sure she always remembers just how tiny they are. With this baby prints set by Pearhead, moms can make a no-mess impression and keep the print forever, making it a hanging decoration or putting it in a frame.

Practical Matters

Moms who are pregnant the second (or third or fourth) time around may already have some items, but there are still plenty of gift options.

  1. Given how much use a diaper bag gets, mom could always use a new one. And even better—you can get her a new style. Perhaps she'd like one that looks more like a purse, such as these by Little Unicorn or a beautiful leather option, like this Storksak bag.
  2. If she's planning to breastfeed, accessories will make her life easier, including nursing pads, lanolin cream, and a nursing pillow. A stylish nursing scarf is handy when she’s out and about with the kids.
  3. No mom would ever turn away everyday necessities, such as diapers, wipes, diaper ointment, and pacifiers. If you're feeling crafty, you could offer to make an adorable diaper cake for the shower. Guests will admire your artistic creation and mom gets to bring home things she can use.
  4. Think of some other things she might need for her growing family. If she has a stroller that already expands, look into accessories, such as an extra seat or ride-along board. A new car seat may also in order, and you can't get any more fashionable than the Maxi Cosi line designed by Rachel Zoe.
  5. Finally, don’t underestimate the thoughtfulness of a gift card. It lets mom choose the things she wants and needs. And perhaps best of all, a gift card won't take up any space in a crowded apartment.
