Shopping for presents is always a challenge, but it's even trickier when you're looking for gifts for new moms. On one hand, you want to get her something practical and functional to help her with the adjustment to parenthood. On the other hand, you want to encourage an overtired new mom to kick back, relax, and take time to rejuvenate.

It's usually best to steer clear of most baby-centered gifts: New parents probably have enough onesies, burp cloths, and bottles from their baby shower to last them a long time. But something like a monthly subscription for audiobooks will help her maintain her pre-parenthood interests, even if she doesn't have time to sit down with a physical book for a few hours.

Consider giving new moms presents that promote rest, relaxation, and self-care (like a cozy robe or a much-needed spa gift card). Another foolproof idea is a personalized gift—like a framed print or photo book—so she can cherish those first memories of motherhood for years to come.

Get inspired and shop some of our favorite gift ideas for new moms below.
