Valentine's Gift Ideas for New Moms

Wednesday, February 4, 2015

Valentine's Day is right around the corner. A day practically devoted to candy and flowers (oh, and love)...what woman doesn't love this holiday?!  I say woman because let's face it, it's a girly holiday.  I have never met a man who gets excited about Valentine's Day.  

As a mom with a baby celebrating their first Valentine's Day, I'm even more excited to shower my family with love this holiday and I think a lot of other moms can relate! Here are a few of my favorite gift ideas for moms...maybe one or two hubbies out there will take a look at this list and get some ideas! 

Stella and Dot Necklace: My sister-in-law gave me this beautiful necklace with Henley's initial and birthstone when she was born and it is my favorite thing to wear.  Stella and Dot has many different charms you can engrave or customize for necklaces or bracelets and they make great gifts! 

Teething Jewelry: Babies chew on everything.  These teething necklaces and bracelets come in handy while out and about, and are a thoughtful and trendy gift for a new mom! I bought one of mine from an Etsy shop named Little Miss Fairytale, and my favorites are bracelet and necklace set by Itzy Ritzy.

Personalized travel mug: COFFEE, a mommy must have!  This gift is especially great for moms who go back to work...they can enjoy their caffeine while looking at their little ones all day!  It's also great for moms who are breastfeeding because it leaves you parched!  I have water bottles everywhere and always have a travel mug with me in the car and on walks.  I made one for Brent for Father's Day this past year, and it turned out great!  I bought a personalizable Starbucks mug and printed an 8x10" photo collage (from Walmart) of Henley to insert in it...took all of five minutes to put together and it's one of his favorite gifts ever! I know I would love one, too.  If you don't have the time to put one together yourself, you can also make and order one on Shutterfly

Book for Mommy and Baby to read together: I never used to cry, but I do now.  At everything.  Thanks hormones!  There are a few books that I read to Henley that I love and leave me teary-eyed.  A sentimental gift like these books are great: Wherever You Are: My Love Will Find You by Nancy Tillman, God Gave Us You by Lisa T. Bergren, and of course Love You Forever by Robert Munsch. 

Personalized Pillow: I love pillows.  My husband thinks I'm crazy and we have too many pillows everywhere, but I know I'm not alone.  I've been eyeing these from Shutterfly and I'm sure other ladies out there are too. 

Massage/Pedicure/Spa Day: Whatever type of pampering your mom or wife likes best, gift it to her! I like going to get a pedicure every once in a while, and love when my hubby watches Henley so I can have a little break to get one! 

Date Night: It isn't often that moms (especially stay-at-home moms) get out of the house with their kiddos in tow, so a date night out is a great gift!  Arrange for a sitter and take your wife out for dinner and a movie.  If your baby is still nursing before bed, like ours, you could always go out a little later for a drink and dessert, something we do every once in a while.  My own mom gave my husband and I movie tickets last week and sat with Henley so we could see our first movie since before she was born and it was wonderful!!!
