Try to remove some of the burden rather than giving her another task. Here are some new mom gift ideas that she will actually appreciate.

All of these gifts come with the caveat that you must take care of the logistics. If you give her a robot vacuum, get it set up and going for her. If you want to give an “experience”, it better come with babysitting.

  • Skip the Dishes or other meal-delivery service gift card
  • Lawn cutting service
  • Massage gift certificate (plus babysitting by you)
  • Tacos (honestly, as long as they’re warm and ready to eat)
  • Shearling slippers
  • Robot vaccum
  • Yeti mug (a big one with a lid)
  • Freezer full of meals
  • Babysitting at a specific date and time of her choosing
  • Frozen muffins
  • House cleaning (and babysitting)
  • Mani pedi (and babysitting)
