4. Pregnancy or Newborn Portrait Session
A professional maternity or newborn photoshoot is something any new/expectant mom is sure to love. Present her with a gift-card to a local photographer to have these special photos captured.

5. Prenatal or Postnatal Massage
This is an excellent gift for an expectant or new mom to be pampered and unwind while also being different from other gifts she will receive.

6. Organic Grocery Delivery


One of the last things any new mom or dad wants to think about is grocery shopping. Give the new parents a membership to have their groceries delivered to them for the year (through online ordering) or order a box of their favorite organic goodies to be sent to them with Thrive Market! Not familiar with Thrive Market? See my review here.

7. Organic Layette

Hanna Andersson has beautiful and affordable organic layettes for newborn baby girl or boy. All items are made of 100% organic cotton and are certified by the Oeko-Tex Standard.

8. Mommy Chic Teething Jewelry

Chewbeads is a line of “mommy chic, baby safe” jewelry available in a variety of colors and styles. It is a great way for mom to still be able to accessorize and dress up outfits while doubling as a safe and  non-toxic teether for baby.

9. Organic Carrier
A carrier is one of the best gifts you can give a new mom. Babywearing is convenient for mom and also gives her and baby a special closeness. A couple of the most top rated organic baby carriers are the Ergobaby and the Moby Wrap.
