We wanted to take a moment and throw some ideas out there for all of you new mamas. You know who you are: the ones who haven’t slept or showered, and barely had time to brush your teeth recently…we rounded up some gifts we think you will love this Mother’s Day – read on to learn all about these awesome mama must haves.
Karen Neuburger Dot Capri Pajama Set: We’re swooning over this two-piece pajama set from the lovely Karen Neuburger. The top is perfect for breastfeeding in the middle of the night (and all day, let’s be honest here), and the pants have a very stretchy waist, so you can wear them post-partum and beyond. The pink retro dot is really adorable and makes them perfect PJs to wear all day long. Also, they are cropped pants, which means you won’t be tripping over yourself to pick up a screaming baby. Safety and style first! (Head to the bottom of the post to win a pair of Dot Pajamas)
Babo Botanicals: The Gugu Guru team are huge fans of Babo Botanicals. Babo Botanicals are known for creating everything from sunscreen to shampoo to lip tint, all super safe for everyone, including kids, breastfeeding moms, and pregnant mamas. They believe “beauty starts on a farm and moves to the face. And hair. And skin. And lips. Natural solutions that make you feel good – on your body and in your spirit.” As we head into summer, we highly recommend stocking up on Babo Botanicals sunscreens – they make a wonderful addition to your Mother’s Day gift basket! They also have a Newborn Essentials kit, which is an essential baby shower gift.

Pearhead Baby Album: What better gift to get a new mama than a baby album for recording memories? In the age of digital photography, we often forget how pleasant it is to sit down and leaf through an album. The Pearhead baby books and albums leave lots of room for mama to jot down notes, insert photos, and share all her memories. Believe us, those early days of parenthood are forgotten fast, so record it all! These gorgeous albums and books make wonderful Mother’s Day gifts for any new mama.

NappieSack: What if there were a way to continue using all of your old handbags, even when you’re toting around a baby? There is with the NappieSack! NappieSack is an organizational insert which turns any handbag into a very efficient diaper bag. With over 15 pockets in the bag, there is enough room for diapers, wipes, toys, bottles, breast pump parts, and even your sunglasses, sunscreen, and a snack. If you’re heading out for summertime adventures with a baby, the NappieSack is perfect for traveling, as it holds all the essentials and you don’t need to lug around a heavy bag. NappieSack is a perfect present idea because it is a smart investment; after baby is all grown up, mama can use the bag to organize her gym gear, work essentials, pack for a trip, and more. If you head to the NappieSack website, you can even have it monogrammed just for mom. (Head to the bottom of the post to enter to win a NappieSack).
Tervis Wine Glasses: Ahh, the joy of having a glass of wine at the end of the day! Know what’s not joyous? Breaking a glass. Gugu Guru always loves products which mom and dad can enjoy and are also safe for baby-life. These Tervis wine glasses are plastic, and very durable. Even if you just fill the wine glass with SpinDrift, you’ll still feel fancy drinking out of these. (Head to the bottom of the post for a chance to win 2 Tervis plastic wine glasses).
skinnytees: After you have a baby, there’s this awkward time when you don’t fit into maternity clothing, but your old regular clothes feel so weird on your skin. Luckily, skinnytees is to the rescue! Their butter soft shirts are one-size-fits-all (hurrah!) and are so super stretchy that they will fit your post-partum body and beyond. Their tank tops are perfect for summertime and layering all year round, and their t-shirts and long-sleeved shirts feel like a soft second skin on your new mama body. Plus, they’re ideal for breastfeeding since they can be pulled every which way and not change shape. skinnytees has partnered with Upward Bound House, whose mission is to eliminate homelessness among families with children in Los Angeles by providing housing, support, and advocacy; this Mother’s Day, skinnytees is giving away one skinnytee to a mother in need for every one item purchased from their website until May 9th. They will be hand delivering the skinnytees to the mamas in need for Mother’s Day. (Head to the bottom of the post to win $50 to skinnytees)
