Your best friend is about to become a mom for the first time, and you want to get her something special to celebrate the event. Before you pick up and head to the mall, you might check out the world of online baby shower gifts. Not only will you find the traditional gifts for babies, but you'll also find unique gifts for new moms.

What Every New Mom Wants

There's a difference between what every new mom needs, and what every new mom wants. Sure, she wants the latest crib, strollers, and outfits for her baby, but what about comforting items for her? This is one of the most joyful times in a woman's life, but it's also one of the most stressful. I like to think the best gifts for new moms are ones that rejuvenate her physically and spiritually.

The physical stuff is easy. Start with the basics like scented candles, and bath salts. Put together a basket with pumice stone, peppermint foot lotion, and a roller, and you have a foot massage kit. You can even offer to babysit for a couple of hours while she takes a nap.

What gifts give new moms spiritual support? Presents that let her know you're thinking about her are the best. What about a set of matching mom and baby bracelets, or a new outfit for hanging around the house? What about a journal or photo album to record the changes in her life? When selecting gifts for new moms there's only one rule, give from the heart.
