Having a baby might be one of the most incredible things you will ever do, but that doesn’t mean that the baby blues won’t raise their ugly head. Studies have shown that eight out of ten new moms report feeling changes to their moods and feel a little blue from time to time. Of course, with the combination of sleepless nights and having little time for ourselves, it’s no wonder that new moms get down.


As a mom, you understand just how stressful those first few weeks of motherhood can be. That’s why, if you’ve got a friend who’s just had a baby, it’s a great idea to find some little ways to cheer her up. Here are some cute, quirky ways that you can do that.

Send her a pamper hamper

If you’re not able to give her a gift in person, putting together a pamper hamper could be ideal. Get a basket and fill it with all of her favorite things, so that she can pamper herself a little. Things like some new pajamas, a pair of slippers, some scented candles, and a luxury bubble bath are all perfect. As well as beauty products and pajamas, consider adding some little treats. Perhaps you could get her some artisan tea to enjoy? Various sites sell artisan tea, including www.amazon.com/Organic-Blooming-Tea-Flowering-Calendula/dp/B017BYYG02. Or, maybe you could add a box of her favorite chocolates or truffles? Put together a hamper of all of her favorite things, and you’re sure to put a smile back on her face.

Get her a gift card for her favorite store
