Holiday gift guide for new parents


Feeling overwhelmed goes hand in hand with parenthood (all new parents can attest to that!). Every adorable giggle and every gentle coo also comes with spit-ups, dirty diapers, and late- night feedings. 

The holidays therefore, are a great time to give new parents gifts that are both meaningful and useful for them or their little one. But, with so many gifts out there, picking the right one can be a challenge. 

So, we took the liberty of putting together a holiday gift guide of the top trending gifts for new parents for you to choose from. We’ve got gift cards, tummy oil, comfy footwear, and more, so without further ado, let’s dive in.

1. Hatch belly oil

Pregnancy comes with its quirks – nausea, cravings, swollen feet, and … stretch marks. Not to worry though, moms-to-be have been raving about Hatch Belly Oil which was formulated with mamas in mind. It’s a botanical oil that dries quickly, isn’t greasy, and actually reduces the appearance of stretch marks.

2. Instacart Gift Card

Food can be a toughie for parents with little ones. With a baby that is always hungry, it can be hard to make time to feed yourselves. If you’re wondering what to get new parents, consider an Instacart gift card. It may not cut out the cooking, but it will free up time that would otherwise be spent on shopping.

3. The Tushbaby hip carrier

As we all know, babies like to be held and carried, sometimes all day long! But, it’s a killer on your back. Cue one of the best gifts for new parents – the Tushbaby. It’s worn like a belt so the baby can rest on it to evenly distribute their weight. The Tushbaby carrier also has pockets for pacifiers, bottles, burp clothes, wipes, you name it.

Disclaimer: The Tusbaby is recommended as breastfeeding support for babies 0 – 6 months old and as a baby seat once they can hold their heads up.

4. Keurig coffee machine

Contrary to popular belief, nursing moms can drink coffee provided they limit their caffeine intake to two to three cups a day. So, of course, we’re recommending a coffee machine as a holiday gift. It’s something that both parents will make good use of. The Keurig is compact, space-saving, and comes in a bunch of cute colors, models, and price options.

5. Comfy slippers

Nothing beats a comfy pair of slippers in wintertime when you’re shuffling back and forth to the nursery at odd hours. Uggs are all the rave these days, and there are a couple of pairs parents would love. We recommend the Ugg Scuff for men and the Ugg Scuffette for women. These slippers are easy to slip on and cozy.

6. Ember mug

Here’s another tech-savvy gift new parents will appreciate. A coffee mug that stays hot for as long as needed. The Ember mug can be temperature-controlled via an app and automatically shuts off when the beverage is finished (no fire hazards here!).

7. Coterie diapers

New parents can never have enough diapers, but if those diapers are fragrance-free, hypoallergenic, and free of latex, rubber, phthalates, VOCs, parabens, bleach, dyes, and lotion, then there’s nothing like it. Consider purchasing the new parents in your life a month’s supply of Coterie diapers.

8. The Honest Company Diaper Bag

While we’re on the subject of diapers, this stylish, gender-neutral diaper bag would make an excellent gift. It’s made of 100% vegan leather and has no toxic PVC or foams. The backpack has a in-built insulated compartment for bottles and snacks, five internal pockets to help parents stay organized, and comes with a changing mat.

9. Roomba

If your budget is a little bit bigger, the iRobot Roomba vacuum would be a useful gift for new parents. This smart vacuum works on carpet and hardwood floors, it is self-charging, compatible with Alexa and can be scheduled to clean whenever necessary. Now wouldn’t that be a new parent’s dream come true?

10. Zyllion Shiatsu back and neck massager

Late-night feedings can quite literally put a crick in someone’s neck. That’s why we’re capping things off with the Zyllion back and neck massager. New parents will absolutely love this gift. This deep tissue, heat therapy massager will loosen up the sorest muscles. With this device, mom and dad could enjoy a professional massage any time!
