Perfect Thoughtful Gifts For A New Mom

Perfect Thoughtful Gifts For A New Mom

Becoming a new parent is a lifestyle change, and that little bundle of joy will really keep you busy. In fact, a survey of 2,000 American moms found that, on average, they spent 97 hours a week parenting—that is the equivalent of 2.5 full time jobs. If you have a friend who has recently become a mom, give them a gift that can help make their life easier, and remind them that they are appreciated.

A babysitting voucher

A survey by Onepoll found that 53% of new moms didn't get a chance to go out with their partner on date nights. Being able to have quality time together is important for a relationship. It's the simple things like having a chat, going out for a meal, or a trip to see a movie that are much appreciated. If you have a friend who's a new mom, it's a great idea to give her a "babysitting voucher," offering to look after her baby for a few hours while she spends some quality time with Dad. The gift of time is always very much appreciated by new parents.

A beauty subscription box

According to a 2019 survey by Motherly, 67% of new moms feel defined by their parenthood. This figure rises to 82% in stay-at-home moms. Although motherhood is a new role, it is not your entire identity. You're not a completely different person just because you now have a baby; it is just that you have different priorities and responsibilities. The thoughtful gift of a beauty subscription box can help remind a new mom that they are not just a parent, but also have their own identity. It's a small way of making someone feel special and appreciated every month.

Some home cooked meals

When you are a new mom, it is not always easy to get time to yourself, or with your partner. In fact 44% of stay-at-home moms spend more than 3 hours every day doing household chores. Between these and looking after your baby, some valuable "me-time" can often be put on the back burner. If you have a friend who has recently become a parent, give them some delicious home cooked meals that they can freeze and simply reheat. This will free up a little time for them to relax, read a book, watch some TV and spend time on hobbies.

A little gift for a new mom can help make life easier and make them feel appreciated. It is a simple reminder that they are a special person.
