The Best Gifts to Send Someone Who Just Had a Baby – The Cutest Newborn Baby Gifts
One of my best friends (and bridesmaid in my wedding in Maui) just had her first baby and I am SO excited. But, living on the other side of the country I found myself scouring the internet searching for the best gifts to send a new mother and trying to find the best baby gifts that would make her smile in those precious first few months of no sleep and so much love.
I wanted to share some of the personalized, adorable new mom gifts I found because I figured if I were searching for the best gifts for newborns and their mamas, you all might be too! Especially now that I’ve had my own baby, there were some incredible gifts we received that truly stood out from the rest, so I wanted to share those here!
Here are the best baby gifts to send someone who just had a baby!
A gift basket
A personalized baby blanket
Heirloom “Goodnight Moon’ Book with Monogram Embossing
We received this in the mail from a friend when we had our baby boy and are obsessed – this present is such a good idea! It’s a larger version of the classic Goodnight Moon book, and you can emboss it with the baby’s name. This book has become our nighttime routine and is Harrison’s favorite!!! So this is a super special gift to us, and I know it would be for any new parent!
Monogrammed baby backpack
These adorable seersucker or vinyl backpacks are a great price point and are sooo cute.
A personalized baby book!
Monogrammed Hooded Towel Bath Set
You need these hooded towels for bathtime! How cute are these ones that you can get monogrammed? The material is so luxe and soft and I love the blue gingham! (they have pink too for girls!) A friend got them for us and I’m obsessed!
A monogrammed baby brush keepsake set
An adorable swim set for the baby
While everyone will be gifting them something for right NOW, you’ll stand out by giving them this adorable vacation infant swimwear set so they can look forward to their first vacation with their little babe.
Available in infant sizes (and they have matching mommy and me swimwear too!)
Shop these swim trunks
Jellycat Stuffed Animals
I had never heard of this brand of super-soft adorable stuffed animals, but we’ve been gifted a few since becoming new parents and Harrison loves all of them!! The coolest thing is that there are card books that go with each stuffed animal, so you can read to your baby about the animal that they love!
We have this one in our nursery and he laughs every time he plays with the tentacles!
Gingham bib, burping cloth and diaper cover gift set
Custom Baby Name Necklace
Chances are, she’s been getting a ton of gifts for the baby lately, but getting her something like this is a nice way to remind her that you’re thinking about HER, too.This 14K Yellow Gold necklace from Baby Gold is absolutely stunning, and such a sweet gift for a new mom!
A personalized bib & burp pad
How cute is this!??! I’m obsessed. And you KNOW a bib and burp pad will go to use for a new mom and baby.
Dad diaper backpack
Who said moms get all the gifts? get something for dad, too, with this Dad diaper backpack!
A plush stuffed animal and blanket combo
Love this little lion for a baby gift – and how cute is it that it matches the baby blanket?!
A plush rocker
How freaking cute are these? Send it directly to the couple and include a gift note!
Honest Co. Welcoming Baby Set
Honest Co. is every new mom’s dream brand – it’s all about clean, honest baby products that are completely CLEAN. If I were welcoming a new baby, this would be what I wish someone would send me!
The Ultimate Newborn Kit – Honest & Co
Mama’s Nourishing Self-Care Set
Mom’s One Line A Day Memory Book
A Diaper Cake
How cute is this cake of 70 diapers from The Honest Company!?
An infant dress
If the baby’s a girl, how cute is this little Lilly dress!?
Matching mommy & me lemon dresses, or just get the baby one!
A chic diaper bag
This convertible diaper bag or this black everything bag is a MUST for any new mom.
Personalized plush elephant blanket
Baby Bjorn Bouncer
This is probably our most used gift! Our baby boy loves being put in it and it makes it easy to set him in it while I get ready in the morning, or have him watch while I cook dinner, etc.
Spinner toys from Amazon
These are SO handy and keep babies super entertained. They make for a great gift because they will be USED a ton! They have suction cups so you can stick them on a window, or on the back of a book!
A stroller toy
Another thing we use a TON in our house!
Other nice things to send a new mom or new dad to make their lives easier or just remind them you’re thinking of them in this new chapter!
It’s likely been awhile since mama has enjoyed her favorite bottles of wine – I think this would make for the most thoughtful postpartum gift!
I use Wine.com and you get $20 off your $100+ order with the code FIRST20
Send steaks or a fancy dinner
Whether you order it on Postmates, or you send something your loved one can cook up like steaks (that’s what my mom did for us via Omaha Steaks for our would-be wedding weekend and it was SO sweet), sending a nice meal is a super sweet gift!
I love using this company – they’re always so beautiful!
Personalized spa set
this personalized spa set from Etsy makes the perfect thoughtful gift!
