How precious are these Christmas gift ideas for first time moms? They’re such a great way to honor that brand new mama in your life with a gift that she’ll absolutely treasure (or find totally helpful!). Let’s check them out!
When you’re considering Christmas gift ideas for first time moms, you can go in one of two directions: nostalgic or necessary. Think to yourself “do I want to give a gift that she’ll treasure twenty years from now, or do I want to give her something that she doesn’t even know she needs that she can use right now?” FYI, both answers are absolutely correct, it’s just a matter of what types of gifts you prefer to give. I received some gorgeous Christmas gifts after my son was born that I treasure so much even all of these years later. I also received some super handy presents that solved a problem for me in the “then and now” moments of his early months. Ready to check out our top ten favorite ideas?

If you’re still thinking back to that original question of what type of gift to give, here’s a tip: give one of each! My aunt always gave something that could be used now and something for later. You don’t have to spend a fortune. Pick one option to put the bulk of your gift giving budget for that person into, then use the rest for a little something extra. For example, if you opt to go with the “handy right now” humidifier, you can get mom some single bath bombs or even DIY bath salts.
