Is that new mom in your life a bookworm? A fashionista? A music lover? A socialite?

Hey, y'all! My name is Midwife Kira (aka: CajunStork). As a midwife, I work with new moms in my birth center in the heart of Louisiana. It seems like each year new trendy mom & baby items enter the market and, as a midwife, I often get to witness how mamas may use or like these products. This first-hand experience has helped me compile this short list of some of the best items trending currently FOR HER that she will surely love this season!

Thoughtful or Practical Gifts:
No matter which stage of being a new mom she is in, a thoughtful or practical gift can help her to stay comfortable and can make each new phase of mothering just a little easier on her.
If she is anything like me, though, she may also appreciate a few practical gifts with a hilarious flare!
Gifts for Experiences:
For the first few months after the baby arrives, her entire world will feel as though it only revolves around the baby. Help that special new mom reconnect with her hubbie, her friends and herself by gifting her an EXPERIENCE she deserves. Be sure to shop local for some of these great ideas!

Baby-free Staycation Book a 1-2 night stay in a cute and cozy Airbnb! Call the grandparents to babysit so that special new mom can feel relaxed. Then, sneak away for a short staycation together! You can save on wasting time by finding a room within an hour of your house. Brings PJs, order out and enjoy some R&R. She will surely love the thoughtfulness of this gift, but don't be surprised if she spends most of the trip catching up on sleep :)

Gifts for Bookworms:
Start a new tradition!
I must admit that over the years I have personally become the owner of not just 1 or 2, but 11 Christmas elves. Yes...11!
My oldest son fell in love with the magic of Elf on the Shelf at a young age. Over the years, his elf has gained friends, an extended family ... and recently, a hilarious nemesis. Much to my surprise, the tradition has brought a surprising amount of joy to my home each season and is one that even as my children get older and no longer believe (heck, even when they run off to college!) I plan to continue!
Consider starting a new tradition in your home by gifting that special new mom her own Christmas Elf!
