13 Unique Gifts for New Moms

Team NeuroGum -
Newborns need a lot of stuff, which makes it easy to forget about mom. In this exciting new chapter, a first time mom can feel stuck on what feels like a never-ending emotional roller coaster. If you’re looking to help her relax, adjust to sleepless nights and around-the-clock feedings, and make her feel absolutely loved and supported, below are some unique gifts for new moms. 

New Mom Gifts for Nourishment

1. Instant Pot

  • The Instant Pot is one of the most beloved kitchen appliances. While it functions as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker and steamer, it can also whip up baby food and even sterilize bottles. Its versatility and efficiency make it a great go-to gift idea for new moms.
  • Easy Instant Pot Recipes:
        • Pot Roast
        • Mac and Cheese
        • Pulled Pork Tacos
        • Tomato Soup

        • Baked Potatoes
        • Spaghetti Squash 


      2. Home-Cooked Meal 

        The first few weeks after having a baby is a whirlwind of highs and lows. The last thing a new parent wants or needs to worry about is dinner. Having a home-cooked meal delivered to her house is a lifeline, especially on those harder days. Meals are simple yet meaningful first-time mom gifts.   

        Meals for New Moms:


      • Chicken and Green Bean Casserole
      • Chicken Noodle Soup

        3. Meal Delivery Subscription

            • Nothing beats a home-cooked meal, but the new, sleep-deprived mom may not have the time in the early stages to look for healthy recipes, do the grocery shopping to pick up all the ingredients, and spend long hours in the kitchen. Meal delivery services take the pressure off putting healthy food on the table. They send you a simple recipe with all of the ingredients, and you simply throw everything together.

        4. NeuroGum 

          • With a new baby who wakes up every two hours all night long (or more), the mom will need all the help she can get in order to function during the day. While coffee is effective at increasing energy levels, consuming too much can have the reverse effect, and end up keeping her awake during times when she could be getting rest.

          • Neuro gum and mints are unique gifts for new moms that offer a great alternative to coffee. Neuro’s products contain a proprietary nootropic caffeine + L theanine blend with B6 and B12 vitamins. With just 40mg of caffeine per piece, it provides just the right amount of energy needed to push through the day.

        5. Fleece Slippers 

        • Broken nights are a common feature of parenthood. Make getting up in the night a little less onerous by gifting a pair of cute fleece slippers that are as practical as they are fun. She’ll appreciate having something to kick her feet up in while nursing or rocking the baby back to sleep! 

        6. Gift Card for a Massage

          • New moms are constantly being pulled in a million directions. Between breastfeeding, changing diapers, keeping the house in order and figuring out what to eat for dinner, it can take an emotional toll on her body. With so much going on, the last thing she is probably concerned about is self care.

          • Some moms feel guilty setting up a spa service for themselves, so give her a guilt-free experience she’ll love with a gift certificate for a massage. If you want to go the extra mile, make your new mom gift even more special by offering to come over to babysit!

          7. Luxurious Bathrobe 

            • With no regular routine in those first few weeks, new moms sometimes just want to feel comfortable. There will be various times when even putting on clothes seems like the most exhausting task on the planet. Get her a nice comfortable and luxurious robe that she will look forward to throwing on everyday.

            8. New Mom Care Packages

              • New mom care packages are the perfect tokens of support - after all, she won’t have much spare time to go out and pick up items on her own, and she’ll be so wrapped up in caring for her little one, she may forget to care for herself.
