Best New Mom and Baby Gift Ideas

Relax Dad, I have some ideas for new mom and baby gifts that are far more unique than your standard basket of flowers placed at your beloved’s bedside after delivery. In fact, if you are smart enough to show up with both a pretty floral arrangement and one of the following gifts taken from our list of suggestions of time-tested gifts for a new mom you're practically guaranteed a nomination for daddy of the year!

New dads may not understand the importance or significance of such keepsakes and certainly some of them may seem rather expensive initially. But once you think about it, precious metals, diamonds, pearls and gemstones are worth every penny because they are classic gifts that keep on giving.


  1. A necklace with a locket where she can put baby’s first picture or a lock of hair
  2. A mom bracelet with a baby shoe charm or charms with special meaning to your family
  3. A MOM ring
  4. Personalized mom and baby jewelry


  1. Matching mother and baby pearl bracelets
  2. A pair of pink pearl earrings to celebrate the birth of a baby girl
  3. An add a pearl necklace for mother and baby
  4. Pearl mother and baby rings


  1. Baby birthstone charms for mothers charm bracelet
  2. A MOM ring set with her baby’s birthstone and a tiny birthstone baby ring
  3. A birthstone necklace for mom and baby

Warning: These are excellent suggestions for gifts from friends, but mom might prefer something a little more personal from dad.

  1. US Savings Bonds
  2. A gift card a store that sells baby items and one from the local spa for mom
  3. A pretty nursing gown
  4. Homemade knitted or crocheted items
  5. Cash

Every time the mother of your baby boy or girl wears the heirloom quality jewelry that you brought her in celebration of the birth of your child she will remember that special moment in the love that she saw in your eyes for many, many years. And then when your baby is a grown man or woman whatever you choose as an appropriate new mom and baby gift will be passed on and will serve as a reminder of how happy the two of you were at this special moment in time. And whatever gift that you choose to buy, remember to present it with a hug.
