How to Make a New Mom Care Package
So your bestie (or sister-in-law or neighbor or cousin) just had a baby, and you want to do something to show them a little love during this exciting - and often exhausting - time in their life. Going over to visit is always nice, but if you're far away, not feeling well, or you just don't want to overwhelm the family, a care package is a perfect way to help a new mom remember she's not in this alone! Here are a few great items to make a new mom care package and give your favorite new mama a moment for herself.
10 Items for a New Mom Care Package
Anything comfy-cozy for lounging around the houseA pair of fuzzy socks, soft slippers, a feeding-friendly sweatshirt, or a pretty nursing bra are all essentials for long days with a newborn.
A big insulated travel cupFor staying hydrated or just trying to keep that cup of coffee hot without the 5 trips to the microwave to reheat it. Or get high tech with this mug that reheats coffee on its own - no microwave required!
A few little luxuriesThis is the perfect time to treat her to a couple of those little luxurious items that she probably doesn't treat herself to often. A pretty candle with an uplifting scent, a nice bar of chocolate, supersoft pajamas, a face mask, anything to help remind her to take a moment for herself during this busy time.
Gift cards for takeout, meal kits, or grocery delivery
For when time and energy to cook are running low, but she still needs nourishment to heal.
Homemade healthy treatsYou can't go wrong with a little home baked love, and with limited time to spend on making meals, something to give her some extra energy will be much appreciated. Try a jar of homemade granola, a container of breakfast cookies, or even lactation cookies if she's nursing!
To squeeze in another few days between hair washings.
Nice Face or Eye Cream
So she can keep her skin soothed and at least pretend she's getting enough sleep.
Spa Gift Card
She may not be able to get a few hours away just yet, but a massage, facial, or mani-pedi might be just what she needs with the demanding schedule of a newborn.
An Accessory For HerA simple pendant necklace with the new baby's initials is pretty enough for everyday wear, but makes a meaningful gift for mama.
An Accessory For the Babe
A cute teething accessory, pacifier clip, or hair bow is a sweet way to show love for the new babe.
