Gifts for New Parents that are Actually Useful
Cozy Pajamas: It’s the perfect time of year for couch cuddling as a new family! A set of cozy pajamas for mom, dad AND the kiddos will be the perfect gifts for new parents to stay comfortable this season. Plus, these Posh Peanut women’s pajamas are designed with breastfeeding in mind, making them the perfect new mom gift! Get the whole family a matching set to cover all the bases.
New Mom “Care Package:” Something thoughtful like a “New Mom Care Package” will be a sweet gift for a new mom in your life. Including products like cozy socks, aromatherapy oil, bath bombs and an eye pillow, you can encourage new moms to take some time to relax. Buy one pre-made or source your own supplies to make care package gifts for new parents.
Meals: Every new parenting team needs to eat – something that becomes surprisingly difficult with a newborn at home. Bring your friends or family a home-cooked meal this holiday season to make their life just a little easier. If that’s not your thing, try gifting new parents a weekly food service to make meal prep a breeze or coordinate with a local catering company to drop off pre-cooked meals.
Comfy Robe: When in doubt, something soft is the best gift for new moms. A comfortable robe is sure to make her mornings better, and Posh Peanut robes are designed with a high tying belt for pregnant women and are just as perfect for postpartum comfort. They’re designed with breastfeeding and small kiddos in mind with lightweight material and, of course, pockets.

Cleaning Service: Who really has time to clean with a new baby to look after? If you’re looking for a way to really WOW new parents with a holiday gift, try gifting them a few cleaning sessions. They’ll be so appreciative to have a cleaner home without them having to do it themselves. You can even do it yourself or partner with a friend to tackle the mess without spending any money!
Babysitting: Perhaps one of the best gifts for new parents is your time. Offering to babysit is sure to make their year and give them and their partner some time alone. Whether it’s to go on a date, run some errands or even take a nap, babysitting is a great gift for any parent.
Date Night: Coordinate with a few other people to gather gift cards and babysitting services to send new parents on a date night this season! It’s likely that new parents are struggling to find quality time together. Something like movie tickets, a gift card for dinner or even a spa certificate will help them feel like a couple again – not just someone’s parents.
Photo Book: Every new parent with a camera phone is sure to have a million pictures of their new baby. Collect photos to create a photo book to help them cherish the memories of their little peanut.
These are just a few examples of gifts for new parents that we hope will make their holiday extra special this year!
