Gifts for a New Mom

Nameplate Necklace via Luca Jewelry on Etsy

I’m kind of obsessed with Etsy.

I realized I have TWENTY-SIX pages of shops favourited!  (Check them all out here)

I also realized that I have so many pregnant friends it is getting out of hand.  A friend of mine had to actually create a spreadsheet to keep track of due dates and who had made it public!

A lot of these moms are on their second time around (or third!) and it’s tough to know what to get them.  You kind of feel like you don’t want to just add to their pile of ‘stuff’.  That’s why I think something a bit more unique works well.  That and baking of course (what breastfeeding mom is going to turn down a loaf cake!)

Here are a few of my unique picks for Mom.  You can also see more on my Pinterest board handily entitled Baby Gifts!

Chic Bebe

 Baby Massage Bath Oil from ELUCX (Made in Montreal!)

Perfect for massage time and probably something she doesn’t already own!  This company also has belly butter (which I personally love) and Baby Bum Butter!


Zip Tote from bookhouathome (Based in Toronto!)

Sick of that diaper bag you’ve been carrying around for years?  I like this little number…. just throw in some diapers, a change pad, a million other things and you’re good to go!


Scandinavian Ornament Organic Felt Booties by FeltStream

I love these cute little organic booties plus the little scandi touch is up my alley.


Flensted Mobiles – Flensted Balloon Mobile 5

I fell in love with Danish company Flensted while living in Denmark (funnily enough) and we have their elephant mobile in our bedroom.  Bastien loves looking at it and yelling “pha! pha!” (elephant elephant).  This balloon version is cute too!

Quilt Melissa Hevey

Homemade Triangle Baby Quilt by Melissa Hevey (Made in Montreal!)

I can’t believe I just discovered Melissa’s gorgeous quilts – especially as she is located right here in Montreal!  What a gorgeous keepsake to pass down through the generations.

Hearts and Arrows

Heart and Arrows Organic Bodysuits by eleventy-five 

This chic little body suits are creative and unisex (well – I’d stick a boy in a heart onesie!).  Each one is handprinted in Austin, Texas.

Three Initial

Three Initial Necklace by Potion No. 9 (Made in Montreal!)

Cute and classic.  Perfect for the mom of one or more.


Upcycled Wool Elephant from ouistitine (Made in Montreal!)

Cute, upcycled, one of a kind and local!


Funny Mug by Avonnie Studio

If this is not her first kid, she’ll look at this mug and smile.  Plus, it reminds me that everyone has these feelings!

organic bib

Organic Baby Bib by Down Home Amy

Isn’t this just adorable?  I love all of this shops neutral/natural designs.

Rough Diamond

Pink Rough Diamond Necklace by Maksym (Made in Montreal!)

This is just to remind mom how cool and hip she is even when she’s sleep deprived, covered in spit up, and her boobs are aching.

Phew!  Any thing I missed that you think deserves to be on the list?

Originally from the prairies and now in Montreal, I love exploring new places, eating great food and modern design. I'm mom of two wild things and paper and cake make me happy. Photographing your cutie family would make me very happy.
