New moms get a bad rap—they’re constantly tired, easily irritated, and only interested in items that help her show off her newest pride and joy. Yes, the aforementioned characteristics are somewhat true, but, the reality is new moms deserve thoughtful gifts, too. So, whether she’s into beautiful gold necklaces, cool sneakers, or top-notch skincare, here are a few gifts to make her holiday a bit brighter.

This diaper bag is really designed to keep new moms organized, but this go-anywhere bag proves that moms can be stylish and chic. We especially love this tote because the back side has a zipper pocket that has an opening on the top and bottom, so it can be used as a sleeve to fit through luggage handles. Genius!

This is an absolute must for any new mom looking to be a bit more organized. Just ask Alexa to pull recipes, weather forecasts, calendars, to-do lists, and even her favorite playlists. She can even make video calls to anyone with Skype, the Alexa app, an Echo Spot, or Echo Show. Just be sure to thank us later when she’s instantly obsessed.

If this mom still isn't convinced that strollers shouldn’t cost more than $100, this high-end stroller will change her mind for all the right reasons.

Tired of seeing her in those run-down sneakers she’s had since 1999? Tell her she can still enjoy the classics, but with a major upgrade. This sneaker is best for athleisure and everyday wear, but the EVA midsole cushions and the durable rubber outsole lasts for the long run.

There’s nothing more important to a new mom than a multi-use beauty product. This classic oil not only improves the appearance of stretch marks and scars she inherited from the pregnancy, but it also prevents peeling, blistering and itchiness from sunburn and acts as a hair serum.
