Day 17 of #BLOGMAS :: Gift Guide [ Expecting Mom & Newborn ] / Mainly Marta :: A Motherhood + Lifestyle Blog



What started as a digital diary to document a newfound journey as a stay at home mom / wife has quickly evolved into my own little corner on the internet where I share all that life brings my way -- the good, the bad, and those "aha!" moments. All with a hint of sarcasm, a dash of truth and bold European wit. Thanks for following along!

Day 17 of #BLOGMAS :: Gift Guide [ Expecting Mom & Newborn ]

Today's post is about gifting expecting moms and their sweet little ones. I feel like pregnant moms have so much to do before baby arrives that it's nice to go ahead and ease the burden a bit by gifting them something that they might find useful once baby arrives.

  1. Dock-A-Tot :: a great little mattress for the little one. I've heard nothing but great things about this product from moms of newborns. I love that it has a cushion around the side -- moms can rest assured that their baby isn't going anywhere. They have a toddler version too! 
  2. Lily Jade Diaper Bag :: this diaper bag is a God send when you have a baby because it's so spacious. It's also super stylish which is an added bonus. Being a mom doesn't have to mean that you don't have style, right? 
  3. The Ollie Swaddle :: a swaddle that has velcro -- aka, genius. I wish that I had this with my first baby. It sounds like such a good and productive idea!
  4. Aden + Anais Swaddle Set :: these are normal swaddles, but they are so soft and luxurious. They also happen to have the most stunning patterns and prints on them.  
  5. Gift Cards :: are always a good idea. It's always nice to give gift cards from sweet little small shops because you're supporting a new mamma and another's small business. I chose to feature Binxy Baby because they sell baby hammocks. It's a space saver when you have a lot of groceries to buy and a sweet little one to take with you. 
  6. AHAVA Bath Salts / Soak :: because every expecting mom should take a warm relaxing bath when her whole body aches as she awaits for that precious bundle of joy to arrive. 
  7. ToteSavvy :: this is great for a mom that has a super spacious bag already and doesn't want to transfer to a diaper bag just yet. I love that you can just tuck it in your bag and has so many compartments, so you can stay organized. 
  8. Body Pillow :: such a practical gift because everyone knows an expecting mom's main dilemma in the third trimester is her lack of comfort when it comes to sleep. This gift will definitely ease that burden a bit. 
  9. Amareta Stretch Mark Prevention Belly Oil :: stretch marks are almost inevitable during pregnancy and this belly oil also helps with that pregnancy induced itchy skin. 
  10. Magic Baby Bullet :: this is a great gift for that mom who is all about making homemade baby food for her little one. This magic baby bullet comes with a few accessories that is sure to make the process of making baby food so much easier.
  11. Burt's Bees Bath Set :: washcloths, towels and soap is an awesome set to gift because it has all the essentials in one place!
  12. Jelly Cat Plush Bunny :: Jelly Cat toys are some of the softest and cutest stuffed animals on the market. The prefect gift for a sweet and cuddly newborn. 
  13. Mustela Newborn Arrival Kit :: I love this kit because it gives you the full size products for such an affordable price! Mustela soaps, lotions and cleansing products are organic products and they smell heavenly.
  14. Baby Health and Grooming Kit :: kits like this are great because they hold items that you don't think of getting until you really need them. It's nice to give mom something she'll use in times where things can get chaotic.
  15. Medela Pump In Style Advanced Breast Pump :: the perfect gift for the working mom, the on the go mom and the mom who needs a pump because she produces more milk than baby is currently eating. 
  16. Cashmere Robe :: this gift is kind of pricey I admit, but what mom wouldn't feel like a million dollars in this robe -- especially after she just birthed a precious little one and needs all the pampering she can get. 
  17. Sophie the Girafe Teether :: I haven't met one baby that hasn't loved Sophie the Girafe. It's the cutest teething toy and the perfect gift for a sweet little one.
  18. Baby Bottle Drying Rack :: bottles need to be washed and what better way than drying them than this cute grass mat?
  19. Pacifier Clips :: such a practical gift. Pacifier clips made of silicon are perfect because not only do they keep the pacifier from getting lost, they also become the perfect teething toy later on.
& that's a wrap! 19 gift ideas for mom and that cute little newborn she's snuggling in her arms.
