1. Amazon.com eGift Cards

Amazoncom eGift Cards

Current Rating: 4.7

Under normal circumstances, a gift card is pretty impersonal. But the best part of an Amazon gift card is that it now offers Amazon Fresh, which will bring groceries directly to new mama’s door. Saving her the pain of grocery shopping with a baby is always a good gift – it may also be a gift for baby too!. And if she hasn’t already paid for an Amazon Prime membership, you could take care of that for her, too.

Key Features:

  • Allows your recipient to pick what she wants
  • Use for Amazon Fresh grocery delivery
  • Customized to however much you want to spend

Cost: Your choice

2. Ambiance Women’s Juniors Soft Jogger Pants

Ambiance Womens Juniors Soft Jogger Pants

Current Rating: 4.2

Ok, we admit it, lounge pants for new moms may be a bit of a stereotype. But if you give these to a new mama, at least you can have a giggle over it together…and she can laugh all the way to the coffee shop or grocery store, because you know she’s going to wear them there. And to the doctor’s office. And to bed. And to the post office. But probably not jogging. Hey, it’s a stereotype for a reason.

Key Features:

  • 10 color choices
  • 57% cotton, 38% polyester, 5% spandex
  • Machine wash cold

Cost: Est. $25

3. Everyone Hand Sanitizer Gel – (8 Oz) – Coconut & Lemon

Everyone Hand Sanitizer Gel

Current Rating: 4.8

If you give a gift based on what a person uses, then this is a perfect gift for a new mom. And it has the added bonus of being a fancy version of the hand sanitizer she’s been pushing on everyone near her little one. Besides, if she’s using it half as much as she’s asking others to use it, she could use the essential oils for healthy and rejuvenated hands.

Key Features:

  • Contains vegetable glycerin and jojoba seed oil
  • Kills 99% of bacteria when applied to hands
  • Nutrient-rich formula to sanitize and moisturize hands

Cost: Est. $11

4. Baby Handprint Kit by Little Hippo! SPECIAL NO MOLD VERSION! Baby Picture Frame

Baby Handprint Kit by Little Hippo SPECIAL NO MOLD VERSION Baby Picture Frame

Current Rating: 4.2

This is a good gift for a new mom because no matter how “on top of it all” she is, there’s always something that gets put off when you get busy, and the foot and hand prints always seem to be one of those things. The sooner they’re captured though, the better because those sweet little fingers and toes only get bigger. You only get one chance to capture them small!

Key Features:

  • 4 frame color choices
  • Anti-mold paint and 100% sealed wood frame
  • Lifetime warranty

Cost: Est. $22

5. Baebody Eye Gel for Dark Circles, Puffiness, Wrinkles and Bags

Baebody Eye Gel for Dark Circles Puffiness Wrinkles and Bags

Current Rating: 4.1

This one may be a gift best given by a fellow mother because this one is admitting the cold hard truth of motherhood: it means no sleep. And getting no sleep isn’t especially great for the complexion. The dark circles; the bags under the eyes. They’re just part of having a new baby. So this is a big part of the “in case of emergency” kit. In this case, “emergency” refers to anything that makes her leave the house in something other than those lounge pants.

Key Features:

  • Contains hyaluronic Acid, vitamin E, Matrixyl 3000, and plant stem cells to protect, strengthen, and firm skin
  • No filler, harmful fragrances, dyes or parabens; cruelty free
  • Money-back guarantee

Cost: Est. $25

6. BEBE by Me ‘Cosmopolitan’ Hard + Soft + Cushy Beads All-in-1 Teething Necklace

BEBE by Me Cosmopolitan Hard Soft Cushy Beads All-in-1 Teething Necklace

Current Rating: 4.7

Teething is a thing of nightmares for both mommy and baby. Baby will drool all over everything and cry at the drop of a hat. This necklace is a great little distraction that gives an exhausted mom a little bit of femininity as well. And while it won’t always work to fix the tears of the little one, she’ll feel like a super mom when it does.

Key Features:

  • Hard, soft, and cushy beads for multiple chewing textures
  • Made of the safest, food-grade silicone
  • Stimulates sensory, motor skill, and visual development

Cost: Est. $15

7. Brain Games Lower Your Brain Age in Minutes a Day (Brain Games (Numbered))

Brain Games Lower Your Brain Age in Minutes a Day Brain Games Numbered

Current Rating: 4.4

You’ve probably heard the term “pregnancy brain” used referring to moments of forgetfulness. What they don’t tell you is that the only cure for it is sleep, so new moms will likely keep that “pregnancy brain” for years. This gift is a great way to keep mom’s brain sharp. And the next time she actually puts her milk back in the refrigerator instead of the pantry, she’ll thank you.

Key Features:

  • Variety of puzzles including crosswords, memory, sequencing, anagrams, and more
  • Over 200 puzzles
  • Puzzles increase in difficulty as the book progresses

Cost: Est. $10

8. Womens Indoor Warm Fleece Slippers

Womens Indoor Warm Fleece Slippers Ladies Girls Cute Cartoon Winter Soft Cozy Booties

Current Rating: 4.2

She’s up and down so may times a night, her feet can’t seem to keep a happy balance. When she’s in bed they’re hot, so she can’t wear socks. Then while walking across the house to the nursery, they’re freezing cold. If she puts these slippers somewhere she’ll notice them as she stumbles around in the middle of the night, they will be sure to help her with this problem. Besides, she’s not always going to get dressed after she’s been up all night; these comfy slippers will be used a lot this winter.

Key Features:

  • 19 style choices
  • Fleece slipper with rubber sole
  • Hand-washable

Cost: Est. $22

9. Cafe Escapes Cafe Mocha Keurig Single-Serve K-Cup Pods

Cafe Escapes Cafe Mocha Keurig Single-Serve K-Cup Pods 24 Count

Current Rating: 4.5

Mama needs sleep, but that’s not going to happen. So the next best thing is caffeine. She may have abstained from it her entire pregnancy but after giving birth, she could time it just right so that it doesn’t affect her nursing. And if she can work it out, it will change her world. Even is she’s not a coffee fan yet, this may just be what changes her mind. A cafe mocha is just like a hot chocolate with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Key Features:

  • Must have a Keurig coffee maker
  • Blend of coffee and cocoa
  • Contains milk and coconut oil; gluten-free

Cost: Est. $23

10. Cushy form Sciatic Nerve Pain Relief Knee Pillow by Cushy Form

Cushy form Sciatic Nerve Pain Relief Knee Pillow by Cushy Form

Current Rating: 4.2

She may have had a pregnancy pillow that took up the entire bed, but chances are that once the belly shrunk down, so did hubby’s patience with sleeping on a sliver of bed. But she’s still recovering from a pretty traumatic event, and a pillow to help her with her leg, back, and hip pain is much needed. This gift can be the gift that gets hubby off the couch and the loving couple back in the same bed. (And that means dad will be in the room with the monitor and maybe he can take a midnight feeding once in a while, too!)

Key Features:

  • Provides proper spine alignment for side sleepers
  • Includes pillow, storage bag, and travel bag
  • 100% money-back guarantee

Cost: Est. $25

11. Deep Breaths: The New Mom’s Handbook to Your Baby’s First Year

Deep Breaths The New Mom’s Handbook to Your Babys First Year

Current Rating: 4.1

There really should be an instruction book to being a new parent. This isn’t exactly an all-encompassing book for that huge adjustment, but it does touch on a lot of those “What do I do know?” questions. And, as the cover says, the wisdom is imparted unto new mom with “a touch of style and class.”

Key Features:

  • Written by Michelle Pearson, of YouTube parenting vlog fame
  • 213 pages
  • Intended for “Millennial moms”

Cost: Est. $12

12. Digibuddha – First Christmas as a Mother Ornament

Digibuddha - First Christmas as a Mother Ornament New Mother Ornament Porcelain New Mom of a Baby Girl Ceramic Ornament

Current Rating: 5.0

This specific ornament doesn’t have any ratings on Amazon just yet, but it’s sure to have rave reviews after this holiday season. The “Baby’s First Christmas” ornaments and other gifts are all too common, but what about mom? This is the first holiday season she’s forever changed who she is and an ornament to commemorate that will show her that you know this is a big deal for her, too.

Key Features:

  • Handmade ornament
  • Porcelain ornament with red ribbon and gift box
  • 3″ ornament with sealing gloss finish

Cost: Est. $20

This is a great gift for a “granola” mom who’s just recently delivered her new little love. This is a set of products for the new mommy that are all organic and utilize natural herbs.

14. Ekouaer Women’s Sleepwear Short Sleeve Pajama Set with Pj Shorts

Ekouaer Womens Sleepwear Short Sleeve Pajama Set with Pj Shorts

Current Rating: 4.5

Not only is this a comfortable PJ set, it also buttons in the front which will come in very handy for late-night feedings. And it’s short sleeved with shorts, which is great for any residual hot flashes that come after birth and with the hormones she still produces while nursing. If it’s a bit cool while nursing, these pajamas may keep her just awake enough to be able to nurse and put baby back to bed rather than falling asleep in that nursery glider. Besides, there are few things in life better than crawling under a big fluffy blanket on a cool night, and this shorts set will make sure she gets that pleasure all through the holiday season.

Key Features:

  • 95% viscose, 5% spandex
  • Elastic waist shorts
  • Wash gentle cycle

Cost: Est. $33

15. FUN2BEMUM Warm Polar Fleece, Hoodie/Pullover for Two

FUN2BEMUM Warm Polar Fleece Hoodie Pullover for two

Current Rating: 3.9

If a new mom is going somewhere, there’s a good chance she’ll be taking her baby. While wearing the baby is usually the easiest way to carry him or her for extended periods of time, doing so in the cold is significantly more difficult. There isn’t anything in her wardrobe or the baby’s that will make this easier than this pullover jacket that allows her to put it on over the baby wear and give both baby and mom each hoods for extra protection from the cold.

Key Features:

  • Made of polar fleece
  • Hood for both mom and baby
  • 2 pockets for mom

Cost: Est. $60

16. GentlePack – Perineal Ice & Heat Packs c/w Reusable Sleeves for Postpartum & Hemorrhoid Pain Relief

GentlePack - Perineal Ice & Heat Packs Reusable Sleeves for Postpartum Pain Relief

Current Rating: 4.3

This gift is undoubtedly for the very new mother, but it may be used for longer than you might imagine. This is great for easing the physical pain of birth, and those side effects don’t just go away over night. In fact, while the hospital often gives these to moms, they do not give her as much as she needs. And you topping her off to make sure she has them through all her postpartum pain will be undoubtedly appreciated.

Key Features:

  • Use 3 gentle packs hot or cold
  • 3 fabric covers are machine washable and reusable
  • Carrying case included

Cost: Est. $36

17. Go the F**k to Sleep by Adam Mansbach

Go the Fk to Sleep

Current Rating: 4.7

You know your friend better than we do. Obviously, don’t give this to a mom who’s appalled by profanity. But if you know a new mom who finds the humor in an occasional cursing, this may be the perfect lighthearted gift for her. Children have a billion reasons to avoid sleep. And while her baby may not be able to vocalize them like the kids in this book just yet, we’re pretty sure the sentiment will be understood just fine.

Key Features:

  • Comedic mock bedtime story for mom
  • Audiobook available – narrated by Samuel L. Jackson
  • 32 pages of inner parent monologue

Cost: Est. $12

18. Greenco Bamboo Foldable Breakfast Table

Greenco Bamboo Foldable Breakfast Table Laptop Desk Bed Table Serving Tray

Current Rating: 4.3

This isn’t what it looks like. Well, it can be a breakfast-in-bed tray, and if she can manage that from time to time, that’s amazing for her. But this tray made our list because while recovering from childbirth and raising a newborn, there’s a lot of sitting on the couch or in bed. And if she just wants her laptop to stop over heating her lap and her coffee to stop spilling every time she moves, this is a gift she’s sure to appreciate.

Key Features:

  • Durable bamboo construction
  • Folding legs and handles for easy transport
  • Hand wash

Cost: Est. $20

19. Hallmark Keepsake 2017 Little Somebunny New Parents Dated Christmas Ornament

Hallmark Keepsake 2017 Little Somebunny New Parents Dated Christmas Ornament

Current Rating: 4.3

This is a sweet little stocking stuffer not just for new moms, but new parents. And while it may be labeled as a Christmas ornament, it doesn’t actually mention the holiday, so this will work for any occasion – even just the new year. What it does say is “New little somebunny … Great big love – 2017.”

Key Features:

  • Plastic construction
  • 2.66″ tall
  • Dated 2017

Cost: Est. $6.50

20. House Cleaning

House Cleaning

Current Rating: 4.4

This may be a bit too invasive for certain personality types, especially if that person is still relatively new as a mother – she may still be trying to juggle it all. But if a new mom has had a few months of newborn craziness or is returning to work, this is a perfect gift. Everyone will tell new moms to sleep when the baby sleeps, but the dishes don’t do themselves and neither does the laundry. We don’t want to oversell this gift, but this could be a life-changing gift for a mom spread too thin this holiday season.

Key Features:

  • Chose from local professionals
  • Upfront prices and tasks
  • Happiness guaranteed

Cost: Est. $105

21. How Not to Hate Your Husband After Kids

How Not to Hate Your Husband After Kids

Current Rating: 4.7

If you try to explain to someone without kids how you may come to hate your husband after you have a newborn, they may think you’re crazy. You can’t explain to a person what sleep deprivation or what seeing your spouse sleeping soundly while you’re getting up (for the fifth time) will do to your marriage. They have to experience it firsthand to truly know the effects. A new mom will very likely benefit from a “how to” book for not hating her spouse.

Key Features:

  • 288 pages
  • Includes parenting flashcards for her new vocabulary; example: Nokay = No, no, no, okay
  • Realistic and humorous take on marriage as new parents

Cost: Est. $10

If a new mom is still making dinner for her family, she should be praised (heck, she should be praised even if she’s not). This miracle kitchen gadget is wonderful for her because it will make preparing a healthy meal for her family so easy that she may actually be able to do it without adding any stress into her life. And less stress for a new mom can have far-reaching effects on every aspect of her life.

  • Prepares dishes up to 70% faster
  • 7-in-1: Pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, saute, yogurt maker, and warmer

Cost: Est. $100

Ive Waited 9 Months For This Wine Glass Ive Waited Nine Months For This Wine Glass Wine Glass New Mom Wine Glass Mom Wine Glass

Current Rating: 5.0

New mom may not be a wine drinker (yet). But if she is, there’s a good chance she’s really missed a good glass of wine with her friends while pregnant. The next time you get together with her this holiday season, give her this gift to let her know you understand her struggle.

Key Features:

  • Handmade
  • Several color and glitter choices
  • Hand-wash only

If a new mom wants to write her baby letters that her future adult children can look back on but just doesn’t know where to start, this is a great gift.

These are wonderful for a little laugh and even better to let the new mommy know she’s not alone. Each of these 4 milestones for mommy are significant life firsts, and commemorating them is a way of inducting her into motherhood. First date night, first girls’ night out, baby on the move, and our favorite: first public temper tantrum – these are all events that deserve a good bottle of wine.

Key Features:

First, it will get mama’s brain juices flowing and allow her to exercise the muscle she probably doesn’t feel she uses as much day-to-day anymore.

  • 20.2MP digital camera and 720p video recording

This 8-pack of headbands ensures she has her hair out of baby’s reach and not in her face.

This book is written by the same people who wrote the incredibly popular What to Expect When You’re Expecting and is the quintessential how-to on the first year of a new baby. It will give a new mom ideas and tips on things she may not realize now but will become no-brainers after a while. For example: putting a baby on a routine will help them do virtually everything better. But without any experience in babies, how could she know that?

Key Features:

  • Available in Kindle or paperback
  • Provides information new mom may be hesitant to ask

Cost: Est. $11

Nursing Breastfeeding Cover Scarf - Baby Car Seat Canopy Shopping Cart Stroller Carseat Covers for Girls and Boys - Best Multi-Use Infinity Stretchy Shawl

Current Rating: 4.3

What we love about this is how casual it seems. Want to cover up to nurse baby? It can do that. Want to cover the car seat from the wind? Sure! It can even act as a shopping cart or high chair cover to keep baby from sitting in unknown stranger germs. And when it’s not doing any of these things, it’s a great scarf for a mom to use and keep with her so she’s always prepared, whether she’s a new mother to her first child or an experienced mom of several toddlers or school-age kiddos.

Parent Hacks 134 Genius Shortcuts for Life with Kids

Current Rating: 4.6

New moms don’t know what they’re doing. There’s no shame in it; they just haven’t done it.

Welcome to the Club 100 Parenting Milestones You Never Saw Coming

Current Rating: 4.7

It’s so important that a new mom keeps her sense of humor. That’s the best way to get through the first year while struggling to figure out parenting.

36. Special K Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter Meal Bar, 12 Count 1.59 ounce bars

Special K Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter Meal Bar 12 Count 159 ounce bars

Current Rating: 4.2

Instead of stuffing a stocking with candy, fill it with a bit more realistic and nutritious goodies. Because she’s probably not eating great right now anyway, and if she can work a bit of protein and fiber into her diet, it may change her life for the better. And the chocolate peanut buttery goodness will be too tempting to resist.

Key Features:

  • Chocolate coating similar to a chocolate candy bar
  • 5 g fiber and 12 g protein per bar
  • Chocolate peanut butter flavor

Cost: Est. $11

Whether she’s going back to work or driving to appointments, she’ll need this all the more after having a baby.

38. The Pregnancy and Postpartum Anxiety Workbook: Practical Skills to Help You Overcome Anxiety, Worry, Panic Attacks, Obsessions, and Compulsions

The Pregnancy and Postpartum Anxiety Workbook Practical Skills to Help You Overcome Anxiety Worry Panic Attacks Obsessions and Compulsions

Current Rating: 4.1

Postpartum anxiety and postpartum depression aren’t spoken about enough. There is still a stigma that prevents moms from stepping forward to get help. If you’re just beginning to worry about your friend, or even if you just want to provide an outlet just in case, this is a great tool for a new mom to start to cope with her postpartum anxieties. Our favorite part of this book is that the first exercise in the first chapter is to talk to her doctor. Because she shouldn’t have to suffer in silence.

Key Features:

  • Allows for self assessment
  • Tools for modifying anxiety and maintaining these positive changes
  • Covers the basics of understanding postpartum anxiety

Cost: Est. $18

39. The Sh!t No One Tells You: A Guide to Surviving Your Baby’s First Year

The Sht No One Tells You A Guide to Surviving Your Babys First Year

Current Rating: 4.2

At first glance, this may seem to be just another “How to: Baby’s first year” book. But the title should be a clue that there’s something more. Because “Sh!t no one tells you” will actually tell a new mom all the things no one else is telling her – but you think she may need to hear. Like, for example, censor your birth story. Because no one wants to hear gross details. This is a much more blunt and honest approach to that first year, so it’s up to you to decide if it’s right for your new mom friend.

Key Features:

  • Written by a mom and information pulls from a team of moms real-life experiences
  • Available as MP3 CD, Kindle, paperback, and audiobook
  • Hilarious realism in a how-to book

Cost: Est. $13

THENA Natural wellness Best Organic Sitz Bath Soak For Natural Postpartum Care Recovery & Hemorrhoids Relief

Current Rating: 4.5

It probably takes a bit longer to heal than a new mom may have originally planned. And while she’s going through this recovery, she will greatly appreciate anything to make it easier on her. We highly recommend pairing this gift with a genuine offer to watch baby while she takes a bath, locked in with a glass of wine and candles.

Threadrock Full and Low Battery Infant Bodysuit & Womens V-Neck T-Shirt Set

Current Rating: 4.2

The less energy mom has, the more energy the baby has. So much so that it seems as if the baby is stealing mama’s energy like a tiny siphon. This set of shirts will feel so appropriate as a new mom dresses her baby after a rough night’s sleep. And as she struggles to figure out how snaps work, she’ll be glad you gave her this set to show her you feel her pain.

Key Features:

  • 5 color choices
  • 60% cotton, 40% polyester
  • V-neck T-shirt and 3-snap onesie

Cost: Est. $20

42. TiRain – 3 in 1 Postpartum Support – Recovery Belly/waist/pelvis Belt Shapewear

TiRain - 3 in 1 Postpartum Support - Recovery Bellywaistpelvis Belt Shapewear

Current Rating: 3.9

This may seem insensitive to get a person, especially as they’re just starting to shed baby weight. But this belt isn’t on our list for its shapewear ability. It’s here because if mama gets a c-section, her stomach is going to hurt for months. Giving her a way to support her stomach for sneezes and coughs is a touchy matter, so you’ll have to have just the right relationship to do this without offending her. But if you think you can, it’s going to dramatically decrease her day to day pain.

Key Features:

  • 3-in-1 – belly belt, pelvic belt, and waist belt
  • Breathable and comfortable material
  • 2 sizes fit most

Cost: Est. $20

43. Topsleepy Luxurious All Size Bedding Goose Down Filling Comforter, White (King Size)

Topsleepy Luxurious All Size Bedding Goose Down Filling Comforter White King Size

Current Rating: 4.0

Every woman deserves an especially comfortable bed to climb into at night. That goes double for a new mom who’s physically recovering from a traumatic life event and still getting up with a baby 2, 3, 4 times a night. This extra fluffy comforter may make it harder for her to get out of bed each night, but it will also likely make it easier for her to fall asleep after repeated interruptions, which is what a new mom really needs.

Key Features:

  • Machine washable
  • 300 thread count cotton cover
  • Hypoallergenic goose down filling

Cost: Est. $70

43. Traditional Medicinals Organic Mother’s Milk Tea

Traditional Medicinals Organic Mother’s Milk Tea 16 Tea Bags Pack of 6

Current Rating: 4.1

This is a good way for mama to increase her milk production without having to take a bunch of extra supplements. It’s ideal for a woman who likes tea and a black licorice flavor, but if these are not your gal pal’s cup of tea, you should probably look elsewhere for a gift. She will need to drink multiple cups a day for the best results, and the taste is rather distinct. But for those who enjoy a hot cup of tea and are fans of black licorice, this is a fabulous gift.

Key Features:

  • For best results drink 3-5 cups daily
  • Non-GMO, Kosher, certified organic
  • 96 tea bags included

Cost: Est. $23

45. Unisom Sleep Tablets

Unisom Sleep Tablets 80 Count

Current Rating: 4.5

This is a good little stocking stuffer that you can buy as a joke or as a serious gift. Either way, new mamma can use it. It’s safe to take while pregnant and nursing (but she may want to run it by her healthcare provider), and it’s not going to knock her out into such a deep sleep that she won’t wake up for baby. What it will do is get her to sleep faster, meaning if she gets up 5 times a night she won’t be up 30 minutes after the baby’s asleep trying to get back to sleep herself each time. It’s not habit-forming but she should use it sparingly if she’s still nursing because some people have noticed a decrease in their milk production after taking it too long.

Key Features:

  • 1 tablet 30 minutes before bed
  • Non habit-forming
  • Active ingredient: Doxylamine succinate

Cost: Est. $15

46. Batiste Dry Shampoo, Original Clean & Classic

Batiste Dry Shampoo, Original Clean & Classic

Current Rating: 4.2

It doesn’t take long for a new mom to realize that in her new life there is a daily choice she must make: should she shower or should she sleep? And in case you didn’t know, shower isn’t always going to win. For the days that she chooses a nap rather than a hot shower, this is perfect for her because it will keep her hair from becoming greasy and also keep it healthy enough to survive the neglect of a new mom.

Key Features:

  • Made in the UK
  • Absorbs oil and refreshes hair
  • Simply spray, massage, and brush

Cost: Est. $11

47. Roku Streaming Stick (3600R)

Roku Streaming Stick 3600R - HD Streaming Player with Quad-Core Processor

Current Rating: 4.2

While there’s only so much TV a new mom can watch during late-night feedings and recovery before she goes crazy, it’s still likely that she’ll end up watching a lot more television. She’ll start new shows, catch up on old shows, and even rewatch some childhood shows she loved. There are all kinds of ways to make sure she can do that with ease and several different apps she could download onto the Roku. She won’t need a new TV, and it’s likely she won’t need to buy a subscription to anything new; she probably already has them. The one thing that sets the Roku above its competitors is how long it’s been around – since 2008, which means the manufacturer has a lot of experience in the online streaming service. And more experience means a lot of the kinks have already been worked out.

Key Features:

  • Portable for different TVs in your home
  • Unbiased search allows you to search for cheapest way to watch or download shows, games, and apps
  • Streams over 3000 channels and upscales 720p to 1080p

Cost: Est. $43

48. NUK Mash and Serve Bowl for Making Homemade Baby Food

NUK Mash and Serve Bowl for Making Homemade Baby Food

Current Rating: 4.5

This is a great little stocking stuffer for a new mom, because it always seems moms decide to try new foods on a whim. And while the first foods should always be planned with regard to what’s safe for baby, introducing other foods should be simple. She shouldn’t need anymore than this to whip up a meal for baby; just put in whatever soft fruits or veggies she has, and suddenly baby’s menu expands.

Key Features:

  • 4-5 ounce capacity
  • Non-skid base to prevent slipping while mashing
  • Dishwasher- and microwave-safe

Cost: Est. $7

49. Burt’s Bees Mama Bee Gift Set with Tin

Burt's Bees Mama Bee Gift Set with Tin

Current Rating: 3.8

This is a gift best given if mama has given birth in the recent past. The belly butter cream is wonderful for getting rid of stretch marks that haven’t “set” yet. Or rather, the ones that haven’t turned gray. This can take up to a year, so there’s a good chance she’ll still benefit from it this holiday season.

Key Features:

  • No phthalates, parabens, petrolatum, or SLS
  • Contains cocoa, shea, and jojoba butters
  • Fragrance-free

Cost: Est. $25

50. Atari Flashback 8 Gold Console HDMI 120 Games 2 Wireless Controllers

Atari Flashback 8 Gold Console HDMI 120 Games 2 Wireless Controllers

Current Rating: 3.1

There’s only so much Netflix you can watch. A great way to pass the time a new mom spends sitting with her baby while he cluster feeds all day and night is to take up a hobby. And it’s never a bad idea to take up a hobby that lets her hit a pause button while also serving up a healthy dose of nostalgia.

Key Features:

  • Atari Flashback 8 Gold Deluxe version with modern technology
  • 120 games are included
  • Includes standard HDMI cable for install

Cost: Est. $68
