Stuck trying to figure out what kind of gift to get one of your new mom friends? We’ve put together a super cute care package full of fun-sized goodies that will not only treat mom, but baby, too!
I know when I first had my little one, I felt guilty trying to make any time for myself. It was all about baby – feeding, diaper changings, soothing, and, well, more feeding! I was lucky if I got to take time for a shower. That’s why our gift basket idea is perfect – it not only includes a few things for the new baby, for the new mom – my favorite being the NIVEA® Foaming Silk Mousse Crème. Goodness knows what all the new mom hormones do to our skin, and the NIVEA® Foaming Silk Mousse Crème with the provitamin B5 enriched formula leaves my skin feeling silky soft, smooth and hydrated! It’s like being spoiled at the spa, if only for a few minutes while baby is sleeping 😉
So, what else should you include? Here are our top picks:
- Dark Chocolate! New moms need all the energy they can get, and dark chocolate is a delicious pick-me-up. Be sure to grab dark chocolate specifically as it helps boost moods by increasing serotonin levels in the brain.
- Baby Wipes. These are awesome and great for moms and babies! Use them for quick spills, cleaning hands and messy faces, and of course, those cute little baby bums!
- Nail kit/polish/pumice stone/razors. What new mom doesn’t want to be pampered? Sure, she might not have time to go to the salon, so why not bring the salon to her?
- Deep Cleansing Face Mask – Another great way to help mom feel like she’s getting the salon treatment (and doing her pores some good, too)!
- And, like we mentioned above, a can of NIVEA® Foaming Silk Mousse Crème. This is perfect for any care package, really. Available in white peach and orchid blossom scents, and gentle enough for everyday use with moisturizing ingredients (such as provitamin B5!), and the signature scent of the classic NIVEA® Crème.
You can find all of the items at your local Commissary or Exchange stores, and the best part is, you won’t break the bank putting the perfect gift together for the new mom in your life!
