2 mom and baby gifts

Ever since seeing the Dress the Rainbow project, I’m all about COLOR! As in, major heart eyes over here. I’ve done a few colorful series on the blog in the past, and I’m thinking of bringing them back. Until then, I’ve come up with a rainbow of new mom and baby gift ideas! One or two of these ideas below would be perfect for a baby gift, and mom would appreciate it too! Whether it’s a new blanket, new Little Remedies® products from Target, or a freezer meal and a new magazine, you’re sure to warm the heart of that overly exhausted new mom. 🙂

New Mom & Baby Gift Ideas:

  • New book or magazine for mom for when Instagram gets boring and she needs something to read during middle of the night feedings!
  • Lots of paper products. Who wants to wash dishes when you could be snuggling a newborn?! A gift card or freezer meal would be a welcomed gift, too!
  • Thank You notes. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to stock up on cards at the dollar spot at Target.
  • Baby Moccasins. Enough said. 🙂
  • Swaddle Blanket. (Our favorite pom pom one here!)


  • New outfit or top for baby. We go through multiple outfits a day, so a new one is always welcomed. #blowouts
  • Headbands for girls (or bowties for boys.) You can never have too many accessories, right? 🙂
  • Touch and feel board book. These are great for when baby grows a bit or as a gift for the older sibling!
  • Wipes! Those first few months years, wipes go fast! Another good gift? Diapers! Always.
  • Small bottle of hand sanitizer


  • Little Remedies® products – like Advanced Colic Relief Drops or Gas Relief Drops. Little Remedies® is known for being a safe choice for little families, and having these on hand will eliminate a late night trip to Target! (coupon below!*)
  • Cute water bottle. Those hospital cups are great but they don’t fit in your car cup holder on the go. Find something on a smaller scale that’s easier to tote around!
  • A congratulations card (and add a little extra gift card to Target!)
  • Baby doll rattle or toy
  • Not pictured: a comfy robe for mama, a baby book or journal, and/or lots of nursing snacks! A caffeinated beverage may be welcomed, too 😉

*All your favorite Little Remedies® products can be found at Target. The new Advanced Colic Relief Drops are available in the Baby Aisle and you can currently take advantage of  the Target Cartwheel offer – get 20% if you use the app! Starting 9/27, if you purchase two Little Remedies® products found in the Digestive Aisle (Gripe Water or Gas Drops), you can get a $5 Target Gift Card. Both offers end on 10/17.

What’s the best gift you’ve ever received as a new mom? I think I’d take some paper products and a good ol’ freezer meal. No cooking and no dishes? Yes, please! Or anything from Target, because you all know how much I love Target! (insert a million trillion heart eyes)

    I seriously love these gift ideas! As an exhausted Mom with a new baby at home, I whole heartily agree with your gift ideas! Especially a meal delivered and the Little Remedies Advanced colic Relief Drops! #client

    Shopping by color is my favorite! You are making me want another baby already haha. We love the "That's not my" books, even my toddler. I just started selling them with Usborne if anyone is interested!

    Awesome! I like your rainbow gift idea. A baby dress or outfit is a cute gift too. They have thin and sensitive skin so it's better to have a soft and comfy cloth for them like cotton or cashmere .

    Love the colors! You always use the CUTEST fonts. Mind sharing which ones these are?
