Dear Mama: 5 Gift Ideas for the New Mom this Mothers Day

Mothers day - 5 Great Gifts for a New Mom

City Mama tank topĀ 
Who doesn’t love graphic t-shirts and tanks? Today, shirts with words, images, and sayings are a dime a dozen. And yet, I can still never find the ones that perfectly suit me. So, I started making my own! I’ve already gifted several of these to all my besties who are new moms, from the city dwellers, to the expats now living in suburbatory. I love this City Mama one. And right now, everything is ON Sale! $26, at

Tree Hugger Moccasins Limited Edition Moccasins
I have been completely obsessed with Freshly Picked, ever since I saw them on Shark Tank. Susan, the founder, majorly impressed the sharks with her story of cutting sheets of leather into baby shoes, and now, the company is growing by leaps and bounds. I’ve purchased these as baby shower gifts several times over already, and even contemplated buying some for me. I do not have a child, nor am I pregnant, but we buy clothes to wear later, so why not baby clothes for the baby we’ll have later? šŸ™‚ $60, at Freshlypicked.comĀ 

Movable Teddy Bear charm/ NecklaceĀ 
What could be sweeter for a new mom besides her little bundle of joy? How about a bundle of jewelry. The Beecharmernyc jewelry line has a collection just for mom, and new moms! Consisting of sweet charms, like boy or girl birth certificates, baby strollers, and the teddy bear (featured here), all charms can also be customized on a necklace, or stacked charm bracelet. Not only does it add a custom touch for her, but a personal one perfect for the holiday. Teddy bear, $45. See more of the baby collection here.

Birchbox Gift
I recently just held a giveaway for a special Mothers Day Birchbox, but if you missed that, the Limited edition Lovely Day Birchbox is still available, and it’s just perfect to pamper mom this Mothers Day. $62, here.

The Honest Company
Jessica Alba may not ever win an Academy Award for her acting, or movie choices, but she has risen to the top of the celebrity entrepreneurial game. After perhaps realizing her calling was not as an actress, but as a mom, Alba reinvented herself with the Honest Company. And though she may not be too exciting to watch on screen, it’s her reinvention as a global brand that has been exciting to watch develop. I can’t think of a better gift for a new mommy than a first time subscription to Honest Co.
