You have gotten an invite to your friend’s baby shower, but you have no idea what to get them! As a parent, the first year is sometimes a blur. Between not getting enough sleep and the demands of a newborn, there are so many useful products you can give to new parents that will make their lives so much better! Here are ten of the best products to give to new parents.


A new mom can never have too many diapers! Babys can go through so many diapers in a day, so having diapers on hand is always a plus! Set her up with a subscribe and save option on Amazon for Huggies diapers on demand. If the parent(s) to be are a fan of customized designs, order a box of their new Made by You diapers. SO cute y’all! Check out their site—> https://www.huggiesmadebyyou.com




Nursing Supplies

You can’t go wrong with nursing supplies for a new mom! Whether it’s a nursing shawl or new bottles, I know she’ll appreciate it!

Baby Wipes

You can buy a massive box of Huggies baby wipes at Costco with 200+ in the package! Newborn babies will need a lot of wipes! You can also do a subscribe and save option for these as well. No one wants to reach for a pack of wipes and realize they ran out in the middle of the night! 

Baby Clothes

Babies grow quickly, so they’ll be in one outfit and outgrow it within a month or two. When you give her new clothes for her baby, consider buying the next size up so her baby will have clothes to grow into.


Car Seat

A car seat is a must for all new parents! There are so many excellent car seat options out there, make sure to find one that is well rated! We’ve used a range of brands over the years and absolutely love the Diono. 



Whether you give them a meal-delivery kit or bring them dinner, new parents will be so grateful! A new baby can take up a lot of time, so having one less thing to worry about will mean the world to them! There’s so many out there now that there’s no shortage of choices. 


Strollers can be a little expensive, so if you are looking for a great gift to give new parents, a stroller is a must! I love a great stroller/car seat system, but even just the stroller itself is a great gift. 


Diaper Bag

Diaper bags have to go through a lot during the first few years of a new baby’s life. From holding diapers to new clothes, babies need a lot of supplies! Finding a sturdy diaper bag for your new mom is a great gift that she will cherish.

Breast Pump

Whether she is a working mom or just a mom on the go, there will be times when she might need to pump instead of breastfeeding. A breast pump is a must for new moms and a great gift idea. I was an exclusive pumper for Emms & had the Spectra S1. It was a lifesaver, especially when paired with Freemies! 


Baby Book

Baby books are an excellent way for your new mom to store her precious memories of the first year! A baby book will become something she’ll treasure for years to come! You can make your scrapbook to get her started, or buy one online!


No matter what baby your friend is having, a newborn is going to go through a lot of diapers, and they’re going to need a lot of help! Make sure to keep this list handy, and give that new mom in your life something helpful and thoughtful!
