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 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!
