Top 5 Holiday Gifts for Moms-to-Be

Gift for Mom

Skip the gender-neutral generic baby gear and honor a new mama or mama-to-be with a gift that’s practical, versatile, stylish—or all three.

1) Postpartum Mama Care

Being pregnant is one thing. Giving birth is another. And recovering from it all yet another altogether. The women behind Earth Mama Angel Baby have designed a postpartum care package to sooth a new mother’s aching parts and sagging spirits. The four-product set includes Mama Bottom Balm and Bottom Spray—both made with organic herbs to help healing—and Uplifting Happy Mama Spray and Organic Monthly Comfort Tea to assist in regulating hormones. Packaged in a resusable tote, this is a gift every new mama can use. At Earth Mama Baby Angel, $47.82.

2) Diaper Bag that Doesn’t Look Like a Diaper Bag

Yes, moving around with babe requires transporting lots of stuff—diapers, wipes, bottles, burp cloths, toys, extra clothes—but you can do so in style. Designers like Timi & Leslie (starting at $69.99) and Oi Oi (starting at $140) have created bags that are a mama win-win: fashion savvy and and parenting practical.

3) Convertible Coverup

The DriaCover is a stylish poncho, a nursing cover-up, a stroller shade and an anywhere/anytime baby blanket. There’s nothing like versatility when you’re juggling new motherhood with . . . the rest of life. At DriaCover.com, $79.95.

4) Revamped Rattle

Outfit junior with a rattle mama will enjoy shaking as well. Heirloom rattles ($16.50) from Windfall Boutique are made from natural wood and safe adhesives. For a more modern look, check out Giggle’s Nambe rattle ($30) made with stainless steel.
