There comes a time when you start to notice that all of your friends and co-workers are … changing.
Suddenly it seems that everywhere you look are there swollen bellies, raging hormones, and glowing women eating pickles and ice-cream. That’s right: a Baby Boom! When that happens, expect to be inundated with invitations to baby showers, and start planning now to find that perfect gift.
Before you continue reading about the Things to Get a New Mother there is a special announcement we would like to share with you. Catalogs.com has negotiated special medicare rates for our vibrant community of seniors. If you are over the age of 60, you can head over to our Seniors Health Section which is full of information about medicare. All you need is your zip code and a few minutes of your time to potentially save 100s of dollars on your medicare bills.
As We Change
As any new mother can attest, it takes a while to get back in “swim-suit shape.” To ease the transition from the dreaded maternity left-overs and the still-too-tight pre-baby clothes, As We Change offers clothing for the changes that a woman’s body goes through during the course of her life. As an added bonus, this might also be considered a gift for the new dad—because anything that helps a new mom feel better about herself is a good thing.
Have a Baby then Save the World!
When you have a baby, suddenly global warming, recycling, and your carbon footprint mean so much more. So the new mom will appreciate the organic baby toys and environmentally responsible choices available. Raising an eco-friendly tot has never been so fashionable!
New Born Boudoir
Every mother wants to provide a warm, cozy bedroom for her precious bundle of joy. The coziest bedding, functional and beautiful furniture, as well as safety gear for the little one, can all be found at baby gear stores.
Queen for a Day
After nine months of nurturing a new life, and countless hours bringing her long-awaiting child into the world, the new mother deserves a little something just for her. With a little only demanding to beefed, burped, swaddled, and rocked, it is easy for a new mom to neglect herself, but a gift from mySpaShop.com is just the thing to remind her to take time for herself.
Big Budget Baby Items
Let’s face it, having a baby can get expensive! There are so many big-budget items that are necessary, that it can get overwhelming. A gift of one of the more pricey baby items can help a new family with budgeting for baby. A car seat, a playpen, or a baby swing can help to ease the sticker shock that comes with the new addition to a family.
Vintage Nursery for a Modern Mom
Everything old is new again, and modern moms are discovering the beauty of a vintage nursery. Whether she prefers French country or shabby chic, you can find a breathtaking selection of gift ideas for a vintage nursery. Helping a new mom to create a dream nursery for her bundle of joy is one of the best gifts you can give.
Saver of Memories
No one knows how quickly time passes better than a mother. One moment you are holding your new baby, then you blink and they are walking. When you blink again, they are in college. Another blink and they are having children of their own. There is no way to slow the passage of time, but you can capture a moment here and there and preserve them. A bronzing company allows you to bronze a pair of tiny baby shoes so, years from now, the new mother can look at the reminder of how tiny her son or daughter really was.
Worth a Thousand Words
New parents are notorious takers of photos. Bare walls are soon transformed with pictures of their new baby. But let’s be honest … there are only so many walls. At some point, they will run out of wall space and will need another place to safely store the images of their bundle of joy. A photo frame, scrapbook, or archival quality storage box from Exposures is the perfect solution to the photo overload.
Popular Savings Offers
But no matter which gift idea you ultimately choose to give, make sure to also offer to watch the new baby for just a little bit while the new mother takes a quick nap … the gift of sleep is always welcome!
