What gifts are best for new moms?

It feels a little weird to me that my oldest daughter has friends who are pregnant and/or getting married. I think single, 20-year-old young women should be focused one education and career, but we all know that sometimes life goes in a different direction. Those young moms need just as much help, encouragement and love as any other new mommy.

image One of my daughter’s friends, who is also 20, will be having a baby really soon and we have been trying to figure out what to do for her. I was trying to do a pay-it-forward type thing with a $50 gift card that I have for a pay-it-forward challenge. I wanted a local store to maybe match the gift card amount by presenting her with personalized baby gift baskets and then we would give her the gift card to purchase the other things that she needs.

As you know, with four children of varying ages it’s often difficult to get things accomplished in a timely manner. Getting the young lady a gift basket will allow for a variety of items that every new mother needs.

What’s your favorite gift to give to a new mom?
