As you likely know I am a soon to be mom with Baby Logan expected in January. New mamas can be hard to buy for. Do you get them something they can use now, something they can use after delivery or something for the baby? They key is to find things that are multi-purpose and will last them throughout pregnancy, postpartum, and even beyond.
This post is written in collaboration with Bellies in Bloom, an awesome local maternity boutique. I’ve been slowly getting more and more things from them and if I don’t already own them, it’s safe to say that I and any new mama would love to get something from this list.
I also have a New Mama Giveaway running from yesterday until November 29th. Scroll down to the bottom to see how you might be able to win some new mama Christmas gifts.
I have received compensation for this post, but all opinions are my own. If you would like to learn more about how integrity is important to me and how I make money through the blog you can visit my Disclosure page.
#1 Au Fait Mama Nursing Scarf
This item is something the new mama on your list will be able to continue using long after they stop nursing. It’s a super soft scarf that easily converts into a nursing cover. It comes in 13 colours, is locally designed and made, and did I mention that it’s super soft! I also have one of Au Fait Mama’s maternity/nursing long sleeves and I’m so obsessed with the soft good quality fabric.

#2 Ugly Sweater Christmas Bibs
These bibs are less of a present for a new mama, and more for the family to enjoy the cuteness, but I just had to include them in this gift guide, they’re too adorable not too!

#3 Diaper Bag
Every new mom needs at least 1 good diaper bag and this one from Timi & Leslie is great for wearing with blacks and browns, comes with tons of pockets, stroller clips, change pad, and is basically all around gorgeous while still being durable. Can you tell it’s on my holiday wish list?

#4 Nursing Tank
This Ripe nursing tank is great through all stages of pregnancy and postpartum. In buying a tank top rather than a t-shirt or long sleeve it can be worn all year long with different layers. It’s great quality that can last your new mom through several pregnancies.

#5 Boob Nursing Top
Boob nursing tops are unique compared to other nursing items I’ve found because it offers more discreet coverage for nursing mamas compared to more exposed top down options. They also have some super cute sweaters and dresses with similar features that any new mom would love.

#6 Beluga Baby Wrap
This made in Canada baby wrap is made of sustainable eco-friendly fabric and is great for babywearing until the baby reaches 25 pounds. It comes in 3 different stripe variations, black, and my personal favourite, olive green. Bonus – baby wearing is also said to reduce crying by 40% and leaves mom’s hands-free. Sounds like a great stress reducing gift to me!

#7 Bola Musical Pregnancy Necklace
When the ladies at Bellies and Bloom first told me about this necklace I kept thinking about it and had to go back to buy it for myself which is one big reason why I think this is such a great gift for soon to be mamas. The idea behind it is that the baby hears the quiet chime of the necklace while they grow inside the belly. Then they find the sound comforting while mom wears it postpartum. How cute is that!?

#8 YYJ Toddler Sweater
Again, this isn’t exactly for the new mom, but these sweaters are too cute not to include in the list. Bellies in Bloom had them custom made for local shoppers.

#9 Matraea Teas
Matraea has an awesome assortment of teas with benefits to help mamas through each stage of pregnancy and after birth. In my 3rd trimester I’m loving the Baby Belly tea, and they also have the Every Mama tea for after birth, and many others. Honestly, the whole Matraea line is great for stocking stuffers including nipple balm, perineal soak, diaper cream and more!
