The Best Baby Shower Gifts for Mom

A Gorgeous Mama Mug

Why does this coffee mug feel like my friend?

There’s no doubt that mamahood is a (more than?) full-time job that revolves around prioritizing, and caring for, our families.

Maybe that’s why it sure feels special when there’s something that’s for us.

Just for us.

Even if all it is is a simple coffee mug.

Make that comforting cup of coffee special for mama each morning with this beautiful handmade mug.

Yep, this baby will actually absorb less of mom’s face lotion than a traditional cotton pillowcase as well as cause less hair tangling!

Now that’s the kind of beauty sleep I’m talking about…

I have never been more thirsty in my life than the few weeks immediately after having Hudson.

This cool waterbottle will do just the trick.

A Postpartum Doula or Night Nurse

Remember priority #1?

Yep, sleep.

This is the *ultimate* baby shower gift for mom, not baby!

Though I’ve never seen any of my girlfriends actually receive this as a gift at their baby shower, I asked a long list of mommy friends what they thought the best baby shower gift for mom was, they all said someone to come over and watch baby so they can have a second to breathe!

So –

if you’re looking for a practical *unique* baby shower gift, this is it.

Did you know? Postpartum doulas will actually come to your home during the day and care for baby. If baby’s peacefully napping? Postpartum doulas will do things around the home like meal prep, laundry and tidying up.

Night nurses, on the other hand, come over at night, while mom’s asleep, and stay up with babe, feeding, rocking and putting them down to sleep.

Check for local providers in your area and ask about purchasing a gift certificate.


A Cute & Comfy Sweatshirt

I mean.

Is this not the cutest sweatshirt you’ve ever seen?

I am truly in love with it.

A Cricut Machine

A Cricut machine is pretty much an essential for moms – so what better rite of passage for the expecting mama than to own her very own Cricut!

Basically a modern-day label maker on steroids, this home-based die-cutting machine will be used by that new mom for *years* to come.

From DIY’ing her own baby clothes labels, to stickers for organizing toys, and even making cute gift tags and invitations for daycare teachers – there is no shortage of ways for a new mom to use a Cricut.

Not as cute as the mama waterbottle, but maybe a bit more functional.

This really big tumbler is just the right size to keep mama hydrated and the straw is perfect for new moms because they can still sip away one-handed (which is pretty much the only state she’ll be in for the first few months!).

The insulation keeps drinks cool and it’s available in a number of other cute, neutral pastel colors, too.
