A Gift Guide for New Moms + GIVEAWAY! (CLOSED)

With the holidays being right around the corner, now is the perfect time to be planning out your gift lists for all those special people in your circle! And I don’t know about you, but this usually gives me the pre-holiday jitters because let’s face it, gift giving during the holidays can be overwhelming sometimes! But you’re in luck! If you have a new mom you’re planning on shopping for this Christmas I have just the thing for you! Here is my gift guide for new moms…..AND……drum roll please……A GIVEAWAY!!!!

Here are some of my favorite items that I’ve found useful during my second round of motherhood and other items that I thought were just plain cute! Also, be sure to check out the giveaway info at the end!


B.F.F. Diaper Bag – Black Diamond- This bag truly is my “BFF”. I have this bag in “The Countess” print and let me just say that not only is it functional, it is absolutely gorgeous! It’s a diaper bag that I don’t mind to carry! It will keep you both organized and stylish while on the go with your little one!





Q & A a Day for Moms- I have the Q & A a Day 5 Year Journal which is great because for each day there is a prompt with a question that you answer with enough slots to last for 5 years. Q & A a Day for Moms is even better because it is specifically for busy moms like myself, who have every intention of keeping a well maintained and up to date baby book for their little one but can’t quite find the time to religiously keep up with it. With Q & A a Day you answer a question and you’re done! It only takes a few minutes which makes it wonderful! Piece of cake!




Mama Bear Necklace- This bronze Mama Bear necklace from Tag You’re It Jewelry is sure to please! It’s so adorable and perfect for the new mom in your life! What makes this necklace even more special is you can have it customized with her little one’s names on the back! Can we all just pause for a moment and say…….”AWWWW!”




Casetify Custom Phone Case- When it comes to a customized phone case, I love my Casetify New Standard Case…’s cute and functional and FUN!! For $40 you get a bumper along with an interchangeable back plate that is customizable! Once you have the bumper you can purchase additional back plates for $15 a piece! What’s even better is the shipping is FREE! Here’s a case that I made that shows pictures of my family. LOVE!




Mama Makeup Bag- Mama needs her make up bag! Best make it a cute make up bag like this one from Salty Martini on Etsy. This canvas make up bag comes in small, medium or large with a vintage style metal zipper. Can we say CUTE?!?





Sophie the Giraffe- This is a must have for every new mom! I love the vintage look of this teether and my little one loves the squeaky noise it makes! The dark and light contrasting colors are also great to engage your newborn! This is sure to be a hit for both mom and baby!




Mom Life Coloring Book- Because you need to laugh! Being a mom can be stressful and coloring is a great way to relieve some of that stress. Why not do it with a coloring book that will make you smile as well?

Baby’s Infinity Nursing Scarf- This infinity scarf is perfect because not only is it cute for mom, it doubles as a nursing cover making it functional as well! This scarf provides full coverage for mom while nursing but still allows mom to make eye contact with her baby. And did I mention that it’s cute? Because it truly is!



New Mom Safety Pin Necklace- This sterling silver necklace by Dogeared is the perfect way to celebrate the new mom in your life! What a perfect little necklace for any new mom! I might just add this to my wish list!





Momagenda Day Planner- Ok, I’ll admit it! I’m a planner junky. I love planners! Especially this day planner for moms! What a stylish way to stay organized, especially if you prefer to stay organized the old fashioned way, with pen and paper! With several different styles and sizes to choose from, you can’t go wrong!

I hope you’ve found this guide useful. If not, maybe it gave you some other ideas for gifts to give to that new mom in your life! As always, thanks for reading! And don’t forget to enter our giveaway! Please see below for more details!
