If you find yourself with an invitation to a baby shower, it’s not necessarily hard to think of a gift. Many moms have registries for the things they need. However, as a veteran mom myself, I have come to enjoy getting something off the list as well as something just for mom. She will love anything you give her for the new little one, but she’s a person, too, so I find it really fun to give her something that’s just for her. From massages to books to gift cards, here are some unique baby shower gifts for new moms.

10 Unique Baby Shower Gifts for New Moms

A stylish diaper bag

While a diaper bag is also for the baby, most new moms want something comfortable and relatively stylish. They also want something with lots of pockets so they can put their own stuff in the bag in addition to baby’s stuff.

Newborn photo session

Pitch in with a few other friends and pay for a newborn photography session.

Postpartum massage

Give her a gift card for a postpartum massage that she can get a few weeks after baby is born, or maybe even a few months when the sleep deprivation really starts to hit!

Meal delivery service

There are many different companies that do meal delivery, but one of the easiest to give as a gift is Blue Apron. There are different levels of plans with different frequencies depending on how much you are able to spend.

Comfortable pajamas

Some cozy pajamas are a great gift for a new mom no matter what kind of birth she’s had or how she’s feeding her baby. Let her feel like a real person after birth!

A heating pad

There are lots of aches and pains after birth, so a heating pad is a great gift. She can use it for future soreness as well!

Gift cards

Depending on what the new mom likes, you could give gift cards to anywhere—her favorite online retailer, restaurant, or clothing boutique. She’ll have something to look forward to after the birth that isn’t related to her new baby.

Self care toiletry items

Think of what you might enjoy when you’re tired and overwhelmed. You could give shower steamers, face masks, dry shampoo, or whatever else you think the new mom might like!


You could gift her a physical book, or if it might be easier while carrying for a newborn, an Audible subscription.

House cleaning services

You can pitch in with some friends and pay for a few sessions of someone cleaning the new mom’s house. If that’s not in budget, then you can offer to clean it yourself!
