2. The Honest Co. Baby Arrival Gift Set

She can even use the healing balm, body lotion, and shampoo on herself! And best of all? The gift set comes wrapped in a beautiful, reusable wooden box made from sustainable wood — making it perfect for storing diapers, photos, toys, and more.

3. A Subscription Service

What’s better than getting a gift? Getting a gift every month! The possibilities are endless, but here are a few suggestions:

Plated Meal Delivery (for the mom who keeps forgetting to feed herself)
Time and home-cooked meals are two things new moms need the most. Even if you’re not exactly at home in the kitchen, you can have all the fixins’ for a gourmet meal delivered right to your friend’s door.

Beauty Box (for the mom who needs a beauty pick-me-up)
Instead of focusing on “bouncing back,” help her see how beautiful she really is — with a few goodies to make her smile. A one-time beauty box or monthly subscription that’s filled with everything from lotions to nail polish to mascara will pamper her the way she deserves.

Get it from Glossybox.com for $25

Amazon Prime Membership (for the mom who needs an escape)
Whether she’s streaming movies and music on her phone or overnighting baby outfits, an Amazon Prime subscription can provide entertainment and save the day, all in one easy package. Choose the Amazon Mom option, and she can also get 20% off of diapers. Who would have thought there was a time in life when a little appreciation over poop could be so exciting?

A Better Cup of Coffee (for the mom who just can’t stay awake)
Upgrade her morning coffee with the latest trend for adding energy in a healthy way. This kit gets her started with coffee beans, a special blend of palm and coconut oil, and grass-fed butter.

 4. Engraved Necklace

Obviously, her kids are never far from her mind, but help her keep them close to her heart as well in style. I love how clean and simple this design is.

5. A Comfy Sweater

As any new mom knows, when it comes to post-baby fashion, comfort is all that matters. So why not give her a sweater that can pull double-duty from morning to night? This Everlane sweater is 15% cashmere (read: super soft), a “relaxed fit” (read: very forgiving), and comes in navy, black, light grey, and taupe.

Get it from Everlane.com for $60

6. Antimicrobial Phone Case

Oh my gosh, these phone and tablet cases are my germaphobic mother’s dream come true. They have anti-microbial technology that cleans your phone and tablets with just one swipe. And a clean phone is important because we all know that all too soon there will be a baby putting it in its mouth.

Get it from NueVue for $35+

7. Essential Oil Starter Kit

Essential oils are everywhere right now and can be a great addition to keeping the whole family healthy in a natural way. But it can be completely overwhelming to get started. Help mom out with an essential oil starter kit, complete with a booklet for beginners.
