1. Baby carrier
Babies love being close to their moms, and some may leave their moms no choice but to keep them close! And even after the holidays, Mom will need a way to hold her little one comfortably while she gets her work and chores around the house done.
Babywearing isn’t a new trend, but more options have entered the market over time. A common pain point of babywearing is the cumbersome process of taking the carrier on and off, since many carriers may require more than one set of hands to finagle. Some babies also like to have a little variety in how they’re worn— sometimes they prefer to face outward, and sometimes they like to face inward.
Give a new mom the gift of versatility, comfort, and convenience with Tushbaby: a hipseat baby carrier designed for babies 0-3 years old. What sets it apart is its streamlined yet multi-purpose design that both parents and babies will love. Simply strap the Tushbaby on high and tight above your waist and carry your baby in one of the four carry positions—Tushbaby evenly distributes baby’s weight across the wearer’s body and even offers built-in lumbar support. Better still, Tushbaby doubles as a breastfeeding pillow that Mom can use as early as infancy, making it the ultimate 2-in-1 gift—and saving her from an extra purchase.
Tushbaby’s design allows the wearer to support their baby with one arm while evenly distributing baby’s weight, relieving the common aches and pains parents often face when carrying their baby on their hip. The open-style seat makes it easy to pick your baby up and put them down as demanded, and with five pockets, there’s no shortage of storage for baby gear and Mom’s personal items.
For babies 12-45 pounds, Tushbaby can be paired with The Snug attachment for hands-free babywearing! Like the Tushbaby, The Snug is ultra mom-friendly— it’s designed exclusively for the Tushbaby carrier to be adjusted and put on alone, no helpers needed. Attach it to your Tushbaby and place your baby on the seat, wrap the straps over your shoulders to form an x across your back, then buckle the side straps to keep ’em close on the go—hands-free and worry-free. For toddlers and babies that love to be worn, The Snug offers a way to get the same back saving *relief* while keeping hands free for grocery shopping, chores around the house, or just keeping your little one extra close.
2. Stylish crossbody strap for your hip seat carrier or diaper bag
As a new mom, you need your hands free as often as possible. You also need your secret weapons — pacifiers, rattles, burp rags, and more — nearby at all times, especially when you’re on the go. The Snug attaches to your Tushbaby and allows you to go hands-free, and the Tushbaby has five storage pockets to help keep your essential items close.
When not babywearing, you can use the Tushbaby Crossbody Strap to comfortably carry your beloved hip seat carrier (and all your things) the same way you’d wear a crossbody bag. The Crossbody Strap can also attach to other bags with D-rings, making it versatile in how it helps you carry your essentials around.
Keep in mind that the Tushbaby Crossbody Strap cannot be used while babywearing, but rather, is a convenient way to tote your Tushbaby carrier around when it’s not in use.
When baby is ready to be picked up, go from toting your Tushbaby with the Crossbody Strap to babywearing with your Tushbaby in just a few minutes. Simply strap your Tushbaby on high and tight around your waist, and you’re ready to hold baby on the hip seat. You can even store the Crossbody Strap in one of the Tushbaby’s five storage pockets. When you gift Tushbaby + accessories, you’re giving Mom an entire system to make babywearing anywhere a breeze.
3. Luxurious candle to help mom relax
Mom may not get much time to relax, so it’s always nice to give her something she can use when she’s taking time for herself to unwind. With a new little one, Mom may buy less for herself and more for her baby— so sometimes, the simplest gifts can go a long way.
Consider a scented candle to help mom drift off into relaxation—you could pair it with a bath bomb or face mask, too. Turning a simple gift into a themed basket is a great way to add a personal touch without overspending, so tap into your creative side and do something special for that new mom! A luxurious candle is a budget-friendly gift that new moms love, whether gifted alone or with other items.
4. Meaningful piece of jewelry
New moms are going through many changes right after birth, so it can be tricky to gift them clothing, but jewelry can be a meaningful gift. Whether you choose a piece of jewelry that symbolizes their new baby or something that adds sparkle to their daily wardrobe, there are plenty of options out there. Many kinds of jewelry can also be customized to make it even more special. Consider gifting a heart-shaped locket to hold a photo of Mom’s newborn baby or an engraved ring with baby’s birthdate. A piece of jewelry with a birthstone can also be a special sentiment.
While jewelry can be a meaningful gift, remember that babies love grabbing Mom’s shiny necklace and dangly earrings. For these moments, Mom may need a safe place to store her jewelry, especially if she and baby are out and about.
The Pod is a compact zipper pouch designed to clip onto your Tushbaby, your stroller, or even your favorite bag for quick access to petite essentials. Whether you need to store your baby’s beloved pacifier, your sentimental jewelry, credit cards, earbuds, or lip balm, The Pod ensures your items are safe and clean, and always in arm’s reach. Carry on, Mom—Tushbaby is here to make your life with a baby easier.
5. Comfy slippers
Moms spend a lot of time at home with their babies in their newborn days. A cozy pair of socks can help keep Mom warm and cozy, but they may not be enough support for her feet while walking around the house with her baby. A pair of cushy, soft, yet durable house slippers can offer Mom some much-needed support and comfort. Slippers can range in price, so you can make this gift idea as budget-friendly or as outlandish as you want.
And don’t forget, if Mom needs more support for her back, neck, and shoulders, gifting a Tushbaby along with the new slippers can give her the ultimate gift of pain-free babywearing! With Tushbaby’s built-in lumbar support, she’ll thank you from the bottom of her heart—and her back.
6. Nursing cover
Nursing covers are extremely valuable to moms who like their privacy, since nursing on the go is inevitable. So imagine this: Mom goes from babywearing to breastfeeding and back again, without ever needing to stop for a beat—all while being discreet under her nursing cover. With Tushbaby, it’s easy to transition baby from a seated position to a feeding position while using the Tushbaby for support. Whether feeding at home or on the go, Tushbaby offers a practical and supportive solution that serves as two products in one.
While using Tushbaby in the feeding position, you can use a nursing cover to get the privacy you need to feel comfortable. There are different styles of nursing covers to choose from—some wrap around mom and baby entirely, while others cover just the front—but no matter your choice, they can all be used with your Tushbaby while feeding.
7. Multifunction nursing pillow
Breastfeeding moms spend much of their time feeding their babies, so maintaining good breastfeeding posture while feeding is important. Since babies often need a lot of stuff, finding multifunctional products can help new moms get more value from what they have while reducing the number of items they need.
As we mentioned, the Tushbaby offers a feeding position for babies as early as infancy! If new moms plan to travel, run errands, or just spend the day at home, they can babywear, feed, and store their belongings all with the Tushbaby carrier. When you gift Tushbaby, you can give multiple items in one.
8. Robot vacuum to do the cleaning
Just like moms love babywearing hands-free, they love cleaning hands-free, too. A robot vacuum can make a great gift to help mom clean those floors. After all, her body is taking enough of a toll holding, feeding, changing, bathing, and doing everything involved with caring for a baby.
Let’s be real. Babies are a lot of work. Cleaning may be important, but by the time you get your baby down for sleep, you may be ready to hand off some chores to someone else so you can get some much-needed rest. Gift a robot vacuum to help Mom keep up with the household while caring for her baby.
9. Stylish diaper bag
Mom may have to give up some of the things she loves to keep up with caring for her baby, but a stylish tote is not one of those things. She’ll need a bag like Totebaby to carry everything she needs for an all-day excursion or outings with multiple stops. Totebaby is perfect for stashing movie snacks (or wine bottles), picnic blankets, yoga mats, or baby items, and even comes with removable baby tote features, like an organizer, fold-up changing pad, and divider pocket—perfectly designed to hold a Tushbaby.
From storing your stuff and your baby’s stuff to even doubling as a sustainable grocery bag, Totebaby is the ultimate bag of tricks every mom deserves. Choosing a diaper bag to gift can be overwhelming, especially if you’re not a mom yourself—but rest assured, Tushbaby can make gifting moms the best products that much easier. Trust us to deliver parent-first products designed to simplify life with a baby.
