12 Realistic Gift Ideas for A New Mom

In true mom-fashion, here is a Christmas shopping list about a week before Christmas. What can I say, I’m a last-minute-mom. If you are too, check out these great gifts you can get for the mom in your life (or yourself, because you’ve mom’d all year).

Diaper genies, bottles, pampers, nursing bras and cute bibs…are all things you won’t find on this list. Wine glasses, tell-it-like-it-is books and hilarious gifts for an exhausted mom…that’s what you’ll find here.

Merry Christmas, mama.Β 


When that #MOMLIFE got you feeling too adult, grab a snarky coloring book and become a kid again.Β 



Pour yourself a glass of sass with this Mommin’ Ain’t Easy wine glass. If you’re a mom, you deserve wine. True story.





What the fork should you make for dinner tonight? Seriously, I ask myself this very question every damn day. Just make it easier on a gal, with this easy cookbook for the busy AF mom.



Okay, let me tell you something. It’s totally and completely 100% fine to think your kid is acting like an asshole without immediately saying “but I love them” after. Of course you love them. But that doesn’t mean they are easy. Get real with this down-to-earth book about toddlers.



If this just isn’t 1000% accurate…you’re lying. πŸ˜‰



You would be surprised at how easy it is to calm down when you smell something other than milk and sh*t. πŸ˜‰ Check out essential oils, they seriously have prevented many mom-meltdowns for me.

I don’t even know what that was, but I’m fairly sure I don’t want it on me for the rest of the day. Sanitize it up, mama.

In case your visitors need to know what kind of home you’re running – let’s be brutally honest, shall we? #onlineshoppingaddiction πŸ˜‰


Because the fourth trimester is a thing, and you deserve a bump box.Β Bump Boxes 4th Trimester New Mom Gift Box



Becuase there is A LOT of sh*t that no one tells you about becoming a mom. We want you to be as informed as possible πŸ˜‰


You can tell them how much you love them, what milestone they reached today and how you hope they are reading this while they are up at 4am with their baby because payback is the best. πŸ˜‰


This idea is for the sentimental mom. Breastfeeding is f*cking difficult and equally incredible, if you’re able to experience it, you may want a little something to remember it by saving some of your breastmilk in a piece of beautiful jewelry.
