Whether you're a new mom or you're shopping for someone else's first Mother's Day (opens in new tab), gifts for new moms can be challenging to select. Time with a newborn (opens in new tab) is so special, and those sweet (and sleepless) moments are unforgettable. Becoming a new mom is a huge learning curve, so she'll need to try out a lot of different things to see what works for mom and baby. From carriers, journals, sleep sacs, play gyms, personalized board books, and a high chair to a more sustainable diaper option, this list has a bit of everything. And every mom needs to take care of herself, so consider giving a new mom a gift for herself (opens in new tab) as well. Happy first Mother's Day!

Before I became a fashion editor I was a puppeteer, so yeah, I’m only qualified to work in a very few industries. I work in fashion but I don’t wear heels cause I’m already tall.
