1. Editor’s Choice: Mom’s One Line a Day: A Five-Year Memory Book
A new mom might be too busy caring for her baby to think about documenting in the present what will certainly be a precious memory in the future. No new mom could have the time and energy to constantly write a full-blown diary entry of her baby’s growth each and every day. As such, Mom’s One Line a Day is a wonderful journal book idea that lets the mother document each day with her baby for the next five years by writing a simple quote, thought or short passage. Daily reflection is also a healthy exercise. Brevity is indeed the soul of wit.
2. Yogi Honey Lavender Stress Relief Tea
A new mom is bound to spend the next months of her life with gruelling, sleepless nights caring for her demanding, constantly wailing baby. Let your friend or family know that she can minimize her stress by replacing coffee with fragrant, relaxing tea.

The mixture of these with honey, spearmint and vanilla bring about a flavorful combination that is not too sweet but still enticing to the taste buds. This all-natural, GMO free tea will surely help a new mom finish her baby duties in a better mood.
3. Aurorae Classic Yoga Mat
A new mom may be too busy to go out of her house and move around now that she has an infant to take care of. So what to do when the doctor advises that she should start doing simple stretches and workouts to help her postpartum body recover and bring herself back into shape? A non-slip good quality yoga mat like the Aurorae Classic can help her accomplish these light workouts in between looking after the baby at the comfort of her own home. With its specially designed thickness that will protect a new mom’s still sensitive body, exercising will be as comfortable and safe as it can get. Aurorae Classic Yoga Mat which comes in a wide variety of colors also boasts of its durability and odor-free material.
4. Smart Symphonies: Classical Music to Help Stimulate Your Baby’s Brain Development
Between buying a baby’s toys and clothes to feeding and changing diapers, it’s most likely that a new mom overlooks the other small things that her infant may need. Give her a good classical music CD that she could play in the baby’s room.
Multiple studies have shown that exposing a child to classical music in his/her early years can stimulate the brain and promote mental development. The Smart Symphonies CD features 16 tracks of classical music composed by various world-renowned classical musicians like Mozart, Beethoven and Vivaldi. Classical music can also make good lullabies to finally put a new mom and her child to sleep.
5. Tiny Love Super Deluxe Lights and Music Gymini Activity Gym
A baby can never have too many toys. If you want to be remembered years later as the best uncle or aunt who gives the coolest toys, then you might want to start now. The Tiny Love Activity Gym is a wonderful place for a baby’s first playtime and learning. The machine-washable mat has cute colourful animal drawings and can be folded flat for travel.
The Activity Gym with its padded two padded arches has an assortment of adorable stuff toys, music box of tunes, a mirror and even playthings that light up. It is a barrage of sensory stimuli for the newborn baby, a fun way for them to start getting to know the world. They may not exactly be for the mommy, but isn’t a child’s joy a mother’s ultimate happiness?
