There's a good chance that you know someone who has had a baby this year — and as of right now, they're probably stressing about the holiday season. As they've probably forgotten what it's like to enjoy something solely for themselves based on their new addition, there are a few good useful gifts for new moms that'll add a little bit of extra cheer into their life. Seriously — being a mom is hard work, and she's probably dealing with the added stress of whose side of the family will get the joyous honor of being the one that gets to celebrate "Baby's First Christmas."
New moms have been prepped to shelf things aside for awhile and be selfless. Not only is the stereotype about lack of sleep quite on point, but it's more than likely that her big chance to leave the house was likely to the grocery store, or to run another errand. That's why a holiday present for a new mom should either be something fun, or something she'd appreciate. Since babies grow every day, keepsakes and mementos she can look back on will always be winners. Just try to avoid things like gift cards to Babies 'R Us — yes, she'll use it (probably within the week) but it's not a gift that celebrates the fact that she's an individual who did such a monumental thing. Seriously — she brought a tiny person to the world.
