When new babies come into the family or our circle of friends, we shower the adorable little one with the cutest baby presents. But sometimes, we forget about the newly minted mom and dad, who are probably the happiest but also the weariest from spending sleepless nights doting on their bundle of joy.
In this blog, we share a list of the sweetest and most thoughtful gifts for newborn parents that are both pretty and practical. Let’s delve right in!
A Gift Basket for the New Mom
New moms deserve all the love, praise, appreciation, and more. Imagine going through nine months of a rollercoaster of emotions and rapid changes in the body and your whole life in general, and the culminating activity — the beautiful but undoubtedly painful process of childbirth. They’re queens and survivors rolled into one.
Shower them with affection with a gorgeous gift box with everything they need for the journey ahead. Of course, it could be anything but here are some suggestions for the best new mom gifts.
- Nipple cream – she’ll really need this a day or two out of the hospital!
- A delectable box of delicious lactation cookies to fill up her milk supply
- Premium chocolates for happy hormones
- Aromatherapy candles - Lavender and chamomile can soothe her and bub to sleep
- Beauty and bath goodies to encourage her to squeeze in a little self-care/self-love routine because she needs it too!

Here at Orchid Republic, we can customize your gift baskets depending on the occasion and your personal preference. Just let us know what you want, and we’ll take care of it for you.
The first three to six months are going to be brutal. The baby will be feeding ‘round the clock, have erratic sleeping patterns, and then regressing because of teething and other factors just when you thought you’re getting the hang of it. So give newborn parents a boost with something to look forward to in the morning (or at night when they’re on night patrol). If you’re feeling generous, you can give them a fancy espresso machine, or if you’re on a budget, a French press plus a bag of your favorite coffee beans will do!
Home Cooked Meals or a Food Delivery From Their Favorite Place
When they come home from the hospital, the new mom will be on the mend, recovering, while the spouse will have their hands full, taking care of the newborn and other children and also doing their job. Make the transition as hassle-free as possible by giving them a helping hand. One way to do it is to prepare a delicious one-pot meal or send them a food delivery from their favorite restaurant. It’s one of the best gifts for new parents that will surely be appreciated.
Having a baby is not a one-day fireworks moment. It’s months of heartwarming milestones and humbling experiences as you adjust to a new role and make space for someone special in your life. Study shows that receiving floral arrangements can:
- Instantly uplift the recipients' mood
- Reduce symptoms of loneliness and depression
- Encourage feelings of happiness, contentment, and gratitude
A flower subscription is a gift that keeps on giving. It’s also a perfect way to show emotional support without being intrusive to their lives.
