Simple Gift Ideas for a Second Time Mom

January 4, 2018

My good friend just had a baby....her fourth! And it got me thinking about what kind of things I like to receive after having a baby, especially if it's not my first. Usually a second-time (or third-time) mom has most of the baby items she needs, so I like to stick with something little and special for baby, plus a few things to bring a little joy to the new mama! I ALWAYS like to bring the family dinner too. When I had Belle my friends took care of us big time by making us meals and offering to take Hudson on play dates. It was beyond amazing and so so helpful. 

Here's what I like to bring in addition to a meal for the family:
Gerber bodysuits for baby.  You can never have enough of these! My friend has three boys and finally had a GIRL! We didn't know the gender ahead of time so it was a big surprise! Needless to say she needed a few girl things right away. I always like to include little headbands in my gifts too...because you know how much we love our bows! A fun handmade item is always good too! This pretty bib is from my IG shop @mabelandbixby. For the new mom, I love to gift my favorite candle, a Starbucks gift card (because moms need caffeine!), a new mug or water bottle, and my favorite journal, the Thought a Day. This journal is such a sweet gift for any mom! It's super  just write down a few thoughts from the day, every day for five years. Then each year you can go back and read what you wrote the previous year or two. I love comparing my notes and it's a fun way to document your life a little every single day. 

I love to include Gerber bodysuits as a new mom gift for the baby. I know they are cute and comfy because Belle wears them all the time! I can't get over her in this Gerber bodysuit! This girl gives me baby fever! 

I love how soft and sweet these bodysuits are on her.

The Gerber Brand Collection of baby essentials from Target is my favorite go-to for cute clothing for babies. Gerber always offers the very best in baby essentials, including a brand-new 100% cotton collection for Target that delivers on style, value, and quality to meet the needs of today’s modern moms and babies. 

Gerber's line of versatile everyday essentials makes the transition from sleep to play easy for any new mom and baby....which makes these the perfect gift! Each piece is designed with adorable and fun prints and patterns to be worn at night or are perfect for any outing, or just hanging out at home! 

Aren't they adorable? The new Gerber collection is available at Target stores and online now! You can shop my favorites from the collection here.
