gift ideas for new moms

What would new moms appreciate?
– a headband to cover up the hair loss
a pretty robe to make her feel like she got dressed
– snacks and more snacks
a card letting her know why she’s awesome
– a water bottle that is more attractive than the hospital cup
a journal to catalog the delirious joy
– cash for a Netflix subscription

Bonus ideas!
– a cute nightlight for the late feedings
– ear plugs for when the husband takes over
– a favorite book or magazine for when instagram gets old

    I had that exact trail mix in the hospital after I had my son, & went through the bag within his first week. It was the perfect thing to grab when I needed calories FAST but didn’t have time to actually eat anything.
