Valentine's Day Gift Ideas For New Moms

Celebrate the unbreakable bond between mom and baby with these Valentine’s Day gifts that are perfect for new breastfeeding moms, and go beyond the typical box of chocolates or bouquet of flowers.

Finding the right Valentine’s Day gift for mom can be challenging. For new breastfeeding moms, why not get them a gift that helps them relax and escape from the everyday stresses for a little while? Gifts that help moms celebrate their new baby are also a perfect idea for Valentine’s Day. 

Whether you're a new mom looking to treat yourself or surprise a fellow breastfeeding mama, or you're a partner, family member, or friend looking for that perfect gift for the new mom in your life, these ideas are a great place to start.

Valentine’s Gifts for Breastfeeding Moms

Square Photo Book. We’re constantly capturing photos on our devices but rarely have something tangible to look at and hold. For the mom who loves to document her life, get a square photo book curated entirely from her Instagram feed. This unique Valentine’s gift will help her enjoy the people she loves most.

Oversized Water Bottle. Nothing says “love” like consideration for someone’s health, and hydration is extra important for a breastfeeding mom. Get her an oversized water bottle that she’ll never leave behind. Sites like Amazon and Etsy make it easy to customize a water bottle with an inspirational quote or family photo that is uniquely designed for the new mom in your life. 

No-Mess, All-Natural Face Mask. When you’re busy taking care of the most important thing in your life, self-care can fall by the wayside. For a quick and relaxing reboot, try getting the breastfeeding mom in your life a no-mess, all-natural face mask. 

All-Natural Bath Bombs. Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity for new moms to relax and unwind. Bath time isn’t just for baby! To get in a calm mindset, try an all-natural bath bomb with favorite colors or scents. You can easily find recipes online that use ingredients you already have at home.

Accessory Caddy. Being a new mom means spending a lot of time in a rocking chair with your baby in your arms. Get a chair caddy or organizer to help keep everything you need at an arm’s reach and avoid disturbing the sleeping angel. You can stuff all your necessities in the caddy – from your tablet and books to an emergency diaper, snacks, or even a water bottle.

Nursing Pillow. Another great gift you can get for a new mom is a nursing pillow that will provide comfort and support while breastfeeding or pumping. Nursing pillows are designed to help moms comfortably feed their newborn. These pillows perfectly conform to the body and provide moms with the relaxation they need, whether already nursing or due any day. 

Lactation Teas & Cookies. A unique and helpful gift for new breastfeeding moms is something to help them increase their milk production. Try your hand at baking lactation cookies like this oatmeal chocolate chip recipe, or get some relaxing lactation tea that might also help with milk supply and quality.

Subscription Box. The best gift you can give to a new mom is literally anything that will make her life a little easier. Give the gift that keeps giving – a monthly subscription box that will show up at her doorstep with little treats like lotions, cookies, teas, books, and other new products to try. You’ve officially won Valentine’s Day!
