Gifts for Every Kind of Mom!

  1. Diapers- You can NEVER have enough diapers 

2. Wipes/Travel Wipe Case

3. Gift Cards- Food places, Babies R Us, Target, Walmart, etc.

4. Medicine Kit For new moms especially. There’s nothing worse than taking a late night trip to the store because the baby’s sick. This kit has everything you’ll need!

5. Diaper Rash Cream- I’ve tried many kinds, so far my favorite is the Aquaphor Ointment, not the cream! The ointment.

6. Small Hangers

7. Closet Organizers- I’ve seen some cute dividers, and I’ve seen some pretty nice entire sets for a good price

8. Baby Books- My favorite is Oh The Places You’ll Go, By Dr. Suess, Mom & Dad can read it to baby as they grow up, and give it as a send off gift for graduation, or a birthday, with a sweet message inside. 

9. Baby clothes- Baby clothes can be expensive, so when a mom has to buy a lot of them it starts to add up, thats why baby clothes are such a nice gift to receive

10. Sleepers/Gowns these come in so handy for the first month, they are a must

11. Swaddles- The Woombie has a lot of great reviews, although I prefer this style, it’s cheaper too

37. Sassy Seat/Portable High Chair- Out of all that I’ve looked into, this one is by far my favorite. It’s affordable, you can hook it to the table or the countertop, or you can place in it a chair as to turn it into a high chair, and it comes with an attachable tray! 

38. Bibby Mat- Even with a regular bib, children always get food in their lap, that’s why this Bibby Mat is such a great invention
