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 upcoming 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 gifts to send someone who just had a baby in 2020, you all might be too! Especially since many of the new quarantine moms didn’t get a traditional baby shower, or possibly didn’t even do a virtual baby shower, now is definitely the time to spoil them with ALL the gifts and goodies for their new family!!

Here are the best baby gifts to send someone who just had a baby!

A gift basket

A personalized baby blanket

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. 

A stroller caddy!

How handy and chic is this???

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!

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! 

Send flowers

I love using this company – they’re always so beautiful!
