The BEST Gift Basket For New Moms

Pampering After Childbirth
Last week, I asked moms via Facebook for help in putting together the PERFECT gift basket for a new mom.

You see, my sister was about to be blown away with motherhood, and I wanted her to know I was thinking of her, too.
Gift for New Mom
A few weeks ago, I ordered her a comfy sweatshirt and yoga pants from Old Navy [because what screams "Welcome to Motherhood" more than comfy clothes, eh?!].

Side note: Old Navy has a killer section of active wear for tall, lanky gals like us!


I also snagged a gift card for her favorite morning pit stop: Dunkin' Donuts.

(It's easier to stay hydrated when you have something cute like this to drink out of, right?)
For Woman After Childbirth
I picked up some antibacterial to discretely toss to any guests who want to snuggle the new bundle without washing their hands.

Plus, it's the "Stress Relief" aromatherapy scent from Bath & Body Works...a win-win!


Of course, this new mom basket wouldn't be complete without some breath mints, granola bars, an eye mask, hair clips and this bottle [obbbbbbbviously not for baby]:
Lots of mommas recommended food, so I loaded my sis and her new family of THREE up with Freezer Friendly Beef Burritos and Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins, plus scheduled some grub from Omaha Steaks to be delivered in a couple weeks.

Other awesome gifts to consider including for a new momma:
-Nursing shirt
-Tucks pads
-A new robe (like this one)
-Slippers
-Gift certificates for pampering
-Netflix subscription
-Beauty products
-Fresh fruit
-Hair products (like this awesome dry shampoo!)
