Prettiest Gifts For New Moms

A tiny ring to represent a tiny, treasured baby.

Sometimes it’s hard to find a gift that really is meaningful, especially when you really want it to be. I’ve been looking for something special (not cheesy) for a dear friend of mine, and remembered a shop out of Brooklyn that carries beautiful, understated and out-of-the-ordinary items from a handful of different artisans.

Their gift guide for new moms made my heart pitter-pat, which is usually a good sign. Covering the very nice (spendy), and also the very thoughtful, here are ten unusually pretty gifts for moms from Catbird, and they really are for the moms to enjoy … for the most part.

    He's only $14 and you can't help but like him. Just don't be surprised if he gets swiped by an adoring two-year-old.
