We love the moms in our lives, and they deserve nothing but the absolute best  – especially when they first bring their new baby into the world.

Moms can never receive enough love and support from their friends and family, and  thoughtful new mom gift boxes  are the perfect way to show them how much you care. Imagine how special new mamas would feel if you showed up to the baby shower with this beautiful gift?

A curated gift box is a fantastic way to express your appreciation  for the new mom in your life, so we’ve created a complete guide with all the information you need to create one. Let’s dive in and explore how to make the ultimate new mom gift basket!

What is a new mom gift box?

New mom gift boxes are a considerate and practical way to show a new mom that you care for and support them during this exciting, life-altering time. 

  • A new mom gift box is a curated collection of things specifically chosen to make a new mom’s life easier and more enjoyable. The items in the gift box can range from  necessities  like postpartum underwear and pads to  self-care items like relaxing teas and essential oils.

The great thing about new mom gift boxes is that  they can be personalized to fit the specific needs  and preferences of the new mom in your life, making it a significant and thoughtful gift, all while adding your personal touch. Overall, it’s undoubtedly an ideal way to show just how much you love the new mom in your life!

Why you should make a new mom gift box

Making new mom gift boxes is a fantastic way to show new moms that you care for and support them during this exciting time. While becoming a mom is indeed very exciting, it can also be overwhelming and leave little room for self-care amongst all the postpartum care.

These boxes are thoughtful gestures that acknowledge the hard work and sacrifices of being a new mom. A new mom gift box can include practical items that the new mom might need, but it can also include “luxury” items that promote self-care and relaxation, which is so important for moms who are often juggling so many different things at once every day.

By taking the time to create a personalized gift box, you’re not only showing how much you care, but you are also helping make her transition into motherhood a little bit smoother. 

A new mom gift box can include an assortment of items specifically made to help the new mom  feel loved, appreciated, encouraged, and supported. 

In addition to postpartum recovery essentials, items that can be included in a new mom gift box are  things to promote relaxation , such as non-toxic candles, herbal teas, a comfortable robe or pajamas, handcrafted bath salts, skincare products, and snacks.

You could also include essentials for the baby, such as burp cloths or wipes, or even a baby milestone book to help mom document and cherish her baby’s growth and development. 

A new mom gift box is a practical and thoughtful offering that any new mom will undoubtedly appreciate. It is a perfect way to show them that you care and are there for them during this time when so much is changing.

With a new mom gift box, you can help the new mom feel pampered , loved, and supported, which is exactly what she needs. It’s truly one of the most thoughtful gifts.

What to include in a new mom gift box

When creating new mom gift boxes, it’s essential to think about what the new mom might need or enjoy during the postpartum period. From practical items to self-care goodies, there are many things that new moms will appreciate.

Assembling a thoughtful gift box requires  careful consideration of the new mom’s needs, preferences, and lifestyle. 

Whether you opt for practical essentials or indulgent treats (or a mixture of both?!),  the goal is to provide the new mom with a thoughtful and personalized gift that will make her feel loved, supported, and appreciated.

Okay! Keep reading. We’ll give you step-by-step instructions on the best items to include in a new mom gift box.

Practical recovery essentials

The first thing you want to do when choosing what postpartum recovery items to include is to consider whether she had a  vaginal or cesarean birth , as the items you choose may differ some.

Also, whether the mom is  breastfeeding or not  will affect what you choose to put into the gift (lactation tea, nipple balm, etc.).

Self-care items

Moments of self-care can be hard to come by for any new mom, so anything encouraging is helpful. These items can help the new mom take a much-needed break , feel more like themselves, and recharge.

It’s really the better way to support any expecting mom throughout her journey to motherhood. And who doesn’t love care packages?

Practical Baby Registry Checklist for First-Time Moms


Various healthy snacks and treats can be a lifesaver  for a busy new mom who might not have the time or energy to prepare meals or go grocery shopping.

Pick out some things you know they love and  offer an assortment  to satisfy their cravings. You could consider adding fresh fruit, too. 

If she’s breastfeeding, consider adding some chocolate chip lactation cookies or a nutrient-rich muesli topper  to your snack round-up.

Comfortable clothing

A cozy robe, soft and stretchy pajamas, or a pair of plush slippers can make new moms feel comfortable and relaxed during those sleepless nights and long days of caring for a newborn. 

Overall, the key to creating a great new mom gift box is to personalize it  to make the mom in your life feel special. You can help the new mom feel pampered, loved, and appreciated by including a thoughtful selection of practical items and indulgent treats.
