Has one of your friends or loved ones had a baby for the first time or after a long gap? Get them something for Christmas that they will be able to use or a present that new parents actually want to receive during this special time.
Technology and fashion changes every day and there are always new and exciting gifts for newborn parents.
If the dad, mom or couple is coming to your house for Christmas you could go ahead and get a gift for them to use and have it set up and ready to go!
If your loved one is far away, send them a thoughtful gift or a subscription service that they will appreciate.
Below are some of the handier and more practical gifts that I have come across.
Perfect Gifts For New Mothers
Whether your loved one is a single mom or in a couple, childbirth and/or transitioning to a newborn addition can be stressful, not to mention taxing on the body.
I recommend a bit of practical and a bit of pampering for the new mother, especially at Christmas time.
These are some of my top picks of things I wish I had received after having a baby. I hope you find some creative ideas in this gift guide.
When shopping for Christmas gifts for new mamas consider a subscription box. Cratejoy offers many subscriptions tailored to individual needs including a new mom/postpartum box that contains nursing safe self care products for new mothers during their 4th trimester.
Often it happens that a soon to be mom thinks of everyone except herself, she is the last thing on the list and for a long time she will be putting the baby ahead of herself. Short of a spa day, this is a special way she can get a little bit of self-care in.
This gift box is actually three different gifts, one box three months in a row. This subscription is a nice one-time payment for basically months of care packages for your new mama.
2) Breast Pump Bag Diaper Bag
If the new mama you are Christmas shopping for is on the go or going back to work soon, then this stylish Breast Pump Diaper Bag would be very helpful.
This highly-rated bag claims to fit most of the popular brands of breast pumps which would have been super helpful back when I was toting around at least two different bags to hold the diapers, pumps, and cooling sections.
This practical gift can be carried or attached to many different types of strollers or luggage.
Sometimes, taking my breast pump with me was the only way a trip to the grocery store was happening that week.
3) New Mama Gift Box
This Etsy seller has provided a New Mama Gift Box with some adorable new mama swag.
The beautiful box contains a mama mug, bracelet, pen and candle to love on the new mama from near or far.
Every new mama needs diapers! One excellent Christmas gift idea is to start an Amazon subscription for your friend or loved one and cover their diapers for a while.
Find out what kind your loved one needs and set it up to deliver directly to your friend.
I did not believe in bottle warmers until I got one as a gift the second time around being a mother.
Bottle warmers really are super helpful and a welcome gift to a newborn mommy. This is a gift that the mama may want, but not want to buy herself.
6) iRobot Roomba 694 Robot Vacuum-Wi-Fi Connectivity
I do not have a newborn baby, but I will accept any iRobot Roomba for a Christmas gift! As a newborn mom, you don’t always have time or the mental capacity to shower let alone vacuum.
This particular Roomba comes with WiFi connectivity and the mama can set it up to vacuum around her schedule remotely.
This thoughtful gift is such a help to a new mother, and she will love and use it! The ease of use of this little robot miracle is amazing.
It’s the perfect present for the new parents that is a bit obsessive over the floor beings kept spotless.
Hopefully the extra time will be spent getting enough sleep to feel rested.
Gift Ideas For Dads Of Newborns
Now the newborn papas did not have to go through the physical struggles involved with growing and birthing a baby, but they still are tired and sometimes confused as to what to do now that the newborn has arrived!
My husband as a new father just wanted to be able to be helpful in some way.
Get him a Christmas gift that will get him involved and feeling equally needed!
I asked my husband “what gift do you wish you had received when we had a child?” he said “an instruction book for after the baby arrives.”
There seems to be a lot of pregnancy and birth information and classes. Not so much when you need to know how to change a diaper and swaddle a baby and soothe them.
This baby book can answer some of those questions!
8) Ergobaby Omni 360 All-Position Baby Carrier
One really nice Christmas gift for men is the Ergobaby Omni Baby Carrier.
Ergobaby carriers last through many stages of a baby’s life from infant through toddler. We have carried preschoolers in these things!
You can put the baby on your belly or side or back based on the baby’s age.
This one comes in a gender-neutral color. It’s a great gift for a family that is active and ready to keep moving even with a little one!
My husband thought this diaper bag looked amazing because it was a gender-neutral backpack that came with its own pull out changing station!
If the dad of a newborn is out in public when the baby needs changed, there are very few men’s restrooms that are ready for that process and if the restroom does have a changing table, it is highly unlikely that you would want to put your child on that changing table. (Very dirty!)
Another great Christmas gift that is practical and appreciated.
10) Baby Trend Lil Snooze Deluxe 2 Nursery Center
If you are hosting Christmas this year, might I suggest purchasing the father (and their partner) a Nursery Center.
This thoughtful gift is a full-size infant bassinet in a smaller sized pack and play.
I personally used one of these for months with my youngest because it worked so well in my own home and when we traveled.
(I put this gift in the father’s section because I always have my husband do the packing up and unpacking of the pack and plays!)

Gifts For Parents Of Newborns…. Once Again
Parents of newborns need our support even if they have done it before.
Perhaps one of your friends is having their second, third or fourth child in quick succession. Or perhaps the parents have a large gap and are starting the newborn baby process all over again.
Technology and gear have changed in recent times!
Here are some gifts to get them and their house ready for the new addition.
11) Baby Shusher
The Baby Shusher is a white noise machine that can travel with you.
This is an excellent gift to help the parents-once-more prepare welcoming a new baby into what may be a noisy house.
For the happy new parents again, I would suggest this cheeky care package that comes with a card that reads “Congratulations… You’ll never sleep again!”
This gift box contains essential oils to help the parents relax and coffee and chocolate to perk them back up again!
13) Gift of Amazon Prime Membership
Maybe the new again parents are some of the last Americans not to join Amazon Prime. Buy them a membership for their Christmas gift!
This will help the new parents purchase, with great speed, all the things they forgot they needed!
The new parents can entertain themselves and/or their other children with Amazon Prime shows during the times when attention is needed on the new addition. You can choose to gift three months or an entire year.
A new mom and new again parents are going to need some help getting dinner on the table with what may be a wide range of dinner needs.
If they have a high schooler and a newborn baby, one is going to need a hearty meal and one needs breast milk or formula.
Consider a Christmas gift that helps the couple cut the food prep time down.
15) Nespresso VertuoPlus Coffee and Espresso Machine
One epic Christmas gift for parents of a newborn is a Nespresso machine!
They will love it! They will appreciate it!! And it comes with a milk frother! But seriously, what parents with a newborn don’t need some coffee?
The couple with a newborn, the new mothers and new dads need our love and support especially when the stress of newborns is compounded with stress of the holidays.
Show them some love and try to make their new life phase transition a little easier.
Hopefully, this list has inspired you for your Christmas shopping list.
