All new moms deserve special attention – after all, they’ve just taken on one of life’s greatest challenges. Lori Richmond, Editor of TheBump.com, shares some great gift ideas that are tailored to the new mom’s personality.
Style savvy moms love receiving new jewelry. Pieces from PANDORA allow a new mom to express her personal style while celebrating all of life’s exciting milestones such as when a child is born. One idea is to start a new family tradition with a charm bracelet dedicated to the newest addition in the family. Great options include the baby carriage charm, the teddy bear charm with either a pink or blue bow or the “Piece of My Heart” dangle charms.
PANDORA also offers birthday bloom charms and stackable rings, one for each month’s birthstone. Another way to wear charms is on PANDORA earring barrels that hold any pave or openwork charm. All of these pieces are very affordable and start at $45.00.
The Keurig K-Cup Platinum Brewing System is the perfect gift for the new mom who wants to enjoy a few minutes of solace in her busy day.
The Keurig K-Cup Platinum Brewing System brings together the essential elements for brewing a single, perfect cup of coffee, tea or other specialty beverage in less than one minute, affording mom some extra time in her break. The Keurig K-Cup Platinum Brewing System features a backlit LCD display that allows mom to program water temperature, set the digital clock, auto on/off and her favorite cup size – she can simply set it and forget it.
New moms can choose from over 250 varieties of Keurig Brewed K-Cup packs with zero waste or mess. Varieties include Green Mountain Nantucket Blend Coffee, Café Escapes Chai Latte and Snapple Iced Teas. The Keurig K-Cup Platinum Brewing System features a 72-ounce water reservoir ( for multiple brews without having to refill ), and five different brew sizes for only $179.99.
Creative moms with a sentimental streak will appreciate a high-quality video slideshow that recalls this special time in their new lives with baby. It’s very easy to create at animoto.com and because it looks so polished, makes a great “last-minute” gift.
Simply upload photos and video clips of the new family together. Add words and captions to help tell your story. Choose from a variety of video styles, as well as songs for the soundtrack. You can upgrade to HD to put on DVD as a keepsake, or post to Facebook and email to friends and family. Pricing is free for 30 second videos. For longer videos, opt for Animoto Plus at $30 a year.
