Gifts to Pamper a New Mom

A good friend of mine is expecting her first baby soon. It got me thinking about what I could get her to pamper her and let her know that she is loved. Then I started thinking about all the things I wish I'd had right after my first baby was born.

Let's state the obvious ones right off the bat:
1. MEALS
2. Maid service

(AmIright?)



Other great ideas:

1. Dry Shampoo: Because the reality is that she's NOT going to get a shower every day. This was my lifesaver! (Okay, still is...)

2. Water Bottle: Especially if the new mom is breastfeeding. This would sure prettify chugging water in the middle of the night!

3. Tinted Lip Balm: Face it... it will be a while before that new mom is wearing makeup. This at least makes it look like she put in an effort.

4. Thank you cards: For all of those friends and family members who drop by with meals and little gifts. It's good to be prepared!

5. Yoga pants: You know, for when her pajama pants are in the wash.

6. Netflix/Hulu+ subscription: So she won't be bored out of her mind when she's feeding the baby at 1 AM (and at 3, and again at 5...)

7. Sleep Mask: For when she's trying to sleep when the baby sleeps at odd hours throughout the day.

8. Invigorating body scrub: Make her feel pretty AND clean!

What do you think? What would you have appreciated as a new mother?
