Personalization helps meet every need

Includes items she'll actually need

Options to fit any budget

Quick, easy, and convenient gifting

When I gave birth to my son, I felt so isolated and alone caring for my new incision and baby. It was overwhelming. While no one sent me a new mom gift box, I know that it was something I would've so appreciated. 

These isolating days were when Hello Postpartum was born. Today, we offer custom and pre-made new mom gift boxes to support any mom at any stage of her recovery journey

We believe that when loved ones send a gift box filled with recovery essentials, they're sending the message that postpartum recovery matters and deserves support.

Reason #1: Personalization meets every need

Every new mom has her unique needs and preferences (like whether she had a vaginal or C-section birth or is breast or formula feeding.)

By choosing a custom gift box, you’re not just giving a gift; you’re giving a thoughtful, personalized experience. It shows you’ve put thought into her needs and preferences, making the gift all the more special. 

Plus, the ability to mix and match items ensures that every box is as unique as the mom receiving it.

Our Postpartum Box Builder is filled with items to support her recovery and encourage self-care, no matter what that looks like for her. 

Reason #2: Includes practical items she'll actually use

New parents face many challenges, from sleepless nights to never-ending diaper changes. Custom gift boxes can be a lifesaver here. They’re not just pretty; they pack a practical punch. 

I remember I received four or five newborn blankets when my daughter was born. Sure, having some on hand is helpful, but I really would've appreciated something for my recovery.

Imagine opening a box to find everything from soothing creams for chafed nipples to herbal soaking blends. And when the baby is feeding at 3 AM, having feeding supplies on-hand is critical. 

The beauty of custom gift boxes is they can be tailored to tackle the specific hurdles of new parenthood head-on. Build a new mom gift box now.

Reason #3: Validates the postpartum experience

Custom gift boxes for new moms do more than just hold items; they communicate to the recipient that their postpartum experience matters. 

We shared a post on our Instagram a while back that stated, "Just because society doesn't make a big deal about postpartum doesn't mean it isn't a big deal." And that's the truth.

Each item in the box is picked with love, showing the giver has put real thought into making the new mom feel special and understood. Imagine opening a box tailored just for you, with items reflecting your personal journey into motherhood. 

It’s not just about the products but the message they convey—you’re not alone, and your feelings and experiences are valid and celebrated. This emotional connection builds a strong bond between the giver and the recipient, making these custom gift boxes priceless in terms of emotional value. 

They remind new moms that their well-being matters and that they’re being thought of during one of the most transformative phases of their lives.

Reason #4: Range of Options to Fit Any Budget

When it comes to choosing a gift for new moms, custom gift boxes stand out because they can fit any budget, big or small. You don’t need to break the bank to show you care.

Whether you have $20 or $200, there’s a custom gift box out there for you. Start with a basic box and add items like a nipple cream and an encouraging sticker. 

For a bigger budget, think about including premium items like organic baby skincare products or a cozy robe for mom. 

What’s great is you can mix and match products to create something unique without spending a fortune. This flexibility means you can give a thoughtful, personalized gift that respects your wallet.

Reason #5: Quick, easy, and convenient gifting

Custom gift boxes for new moms take the hassle out of picking the perfect present. No more wandering around stores or scrolling through endless online options. 

With a custom gift box, you can choose items you know the new mom will love or go for a specially curated selection that’s been thoughtfully put together to meet her needs. It’s simple. 

You pick it, someone packs it (and we add your handwritten note, too!), and it’s ready to go. Plus, it gets delivered right to their doorstep. 

This convenience means you can focus more on supporting the new mom in your life rather than stressing over gift selection. It's an easy choice, right?

How to choose the right custom gift box

When picking the right custom gift box for a new mom, think simple but thoughtful. Start with considering her unique needs. 

Is she a first-time mom needing everything under the sun? Or maybe she’s seasoned but would appreciate the convenience of not shopping for essentials. 

Here are some points to consider: 

1. Consider her lifestyle. Is she always on the go, or does she cherish those quiet moments at home? Tailor the box contents accordingly. 

2. Think practical and pampering. Include items she needs plus a few for pure relaxation – lotions, bath salts, or an aromatic candle. 

3. Don’t forget the baby. Throw in a cute wooden toy or soft lovey. It shows you’re thinking of her new journey as a new family. 

4. Quality over quantity. Choose fewer but higher quality items that she’ll actually use or enjoy rather than stuffing the box full of filler.

5. Personalize it. A hand-written note or something personalized for her or the baby adds that special touch, making it truly memorable. 

Remember, it’s the thoughtfulness that counts and what makes a custom gift box so perfect for new moms.

Need help getting started? Here's what we'd add

Putting together a custom gift box for a new mom is all about thoughtfulness and practicality. Here’s how to make it special. 

First, toss in some socks. New moms are on their feet a lot. Something cozy for the toes can be a real treat (and our socks have grippers on them, perfect for recovery!).

Next, consider adding a postpartum journal. With all the new experiences, having a place to jot down thoughts, feelings, and postpartum challenges can be invaluable. 

Don’t forget skincare products. Post-pregnancy skin needs extra TLC, so gentle, natural products are a winner. 

How about a mug? It’s simple but effective. A mug with a comforting message or a cute design can be a daily reminder that she’s doing a great job. 

Lastly, snacks. Healthy, quick snacks she can eat with one hand while nursing or managing the baby is perfect. 

These ideas cater to the needs and bring a personal touch, showing the new mom she’s supported and thought of.
