Best gifts for new mamas + babies—that they'll actually love

When someone you love welcomes a new baby into the world, you want to do all that you can to support them and show them how loved they are. But finding the perfect gift to give to a new mama isn't always easy. What's going to be useful, but special? Something she really needs but also something she may not ever think to ask for?

Each mama is different, but we guarantee she'll love having these gifts on hand in the weeks and months postpartum.

Here are our favorite items to give:

5. Streaming subscriptions

Those first few weeks (and months) of having a new baby means lots of quiet time spent nursing, feeding or rocking baby to sleep. If you know she's a sucker for binging shows, a Netflix or Hulu subscription are amazing gifts. She can watch her favorite shows during those late night feeds without worrying about the cost.

For the new baby: Books

While baby can't read just yet, it's never too early to help create their library. If you're unsure which books to give, these are great ones to start out with. Plus, you can add a new one to their collection each year on their birthday.
