It’s the season for Holiday Gift Guides and I am having way too much fun searching online for the best gift ideas for everyone. This year, I have been looking for baby, toddlers, women, men and now more specifically, the new mom in your life. I just had a baby 4 weeks ago (how has it already ben 4 weeks?) and I have so many friends and cousins who just had babies or are currently pregnant, so I have new moms on the brain.
Gift Ideas for the New Mom:
Coffee and mug
Diapers and Wipes
Massage or Spa Package
Gift Basket filled with Essentials
VTech VM341-216 Bear 2 Camera Full Color Video Monitor
How to Make a DIY Hospital Door Hanger:
What you need:
Stamp pad or paint
Ribbon or Twine
How to Make it:
- I lucked out and found a wooden letter that was already painted white which is what I was planning to use as the background color anyway.
- I dipped my oversized stamps in an ink pad (I used espresso) and pressed the stamp down firmly to the letter.
- I pushed down everywhere really hard to make sure I got plenty of ink on the letter.
- I then took my paint pen and wrote Weston’s birth date, weight, length and time on the letter.
- I attached twine to the back of the letter with wood glue so that I could hang it if I want to, although right now, it is sitting on his shelf.
To make the perfect gift for a new mom, make a sign that she can fill in later! I love gift baskets, so I put one together to see how it would look and I love it! Including essentials like diapers, wipes, coffee (all the coffee) and the new VTech Bear Video Monitor made a great gift basket! I would cry happy tears if I received this as a gift from someone. I love the way the letter turned out and we have really enjoyed using the VTech Bear Video Monitor! I love the bear camera because it can be easily disguised on a shelf and fits in the nursery really well! This monitor came with a second camera so that I can see the babies from multiple angles. It is so convenient!
The VTech Bear Video Monitors are available exclusively at Babies”R”Us in-stores and online! Both cameras have automatic night vision and full-color video that displays on a large 4.3-inch color LCD screen so you don’t miss a thing! The VTech Bear Video Monitor features a two-way, talk-back intercom as well as built-in lullabies and other soothing sounds so that you can comfort your baby without having to go in the nursery every 5 seconds. This is especially nice for us because our kids will be sharing a room soon. The VM341-216 comes with two cameras, but you can add up to two more if you need to! We will be adding one more to keep an eye on all three kids as well as having one in our room to spy on Weston when he is napping during the day. It has digital transmission so the video is private and secure. VTech offers feature-rich and modern baby monitors that are stylish and offer parents peace of mind because they can have their eyes and ears on baby at all times. Most of the monitors come standard with up to 1,000 feet of range. Every parent is different, so VTech provides a wide selection of baby monitors that allows you to choose the best one for your family and style.

Gift baskets make great gifts. You can really personalize them. I think the ideal new mom basket has something for the baby, something for dad, and of course a couple of things for mom.
