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:

Fre Wines

Good news, mama: You can still raise a glass this rosé season—even if you're pregnant or nursing. It's all thanks to alcohol-removed options from Fre Wines. Fre's line of alcohol-removed wines is perfect for kicking back on girls night or celebrating the big moments (like that positive pregnancy test, perhaps?), and it can be a huge help to mamas who want to still feel a part of the fun even when they're pregnant or nursing. Besides Rosé, Fre Wines are available in Red Blend, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, White Zinfandel, Chardonnay, Moscato, and Sparkling Brut.

Pro tip: We also love these wines as a way to keep pregnancy on the DL when you're not quite ready to tell friends and family yet. Take15% off (plus $10 flat rate shipping) on 12+ bottles with code FRE through 6/1/19.

[Although Fre removes most of the alcohol during their spinning cone process, a small fraction of a percentage of alcohol remains—less than one-half of one percent (<0.5 %). That's roughly equivalent to the alcohol content of orange juice left unrefrigerated overnight. If you have any health concerns regarding alcohol intake, we recommend you consult your physician before consuming Fre.]

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.
