Gift Guide: For the New Moms

Hello, it's me (again). Can you believe how many times I've blogged this week? (Me neither.) I know I said I was going to blog about gift guides all week but there was a voice in my head telling me it may not happen, don't get too crazy, you are being wild. But here I am, 4 days in and I've published more than 4 guides! 

I kind of want to apologize for how baby- and mom-focused the guides are but I kind of don't. It's what I know best right now and I like to play up my strengths when I can. So this is what you get. 

Today, I'm delivering a gift guide for the new moms. These women are very different from the moms-to-be - when you deliver a baby, it feels like you literally enter a new world. It's a beautiful, bright world but scary and overwhelming and it can take a hell of a long time to feel like you really have found your place in it. 

So, I've created a gift guide with this in mind (and with what I'd want in mind). Before you have at it, allow me a quick disclaimer: while these are all material goods, some of the kindest, most thoughtful and valuable gifts you can give a new mom is your time, attention and love.

Please enjoy! And tell me in the comments: what gift guide would you like to see next? Grandparents? Guys? Friends? Teachers?
