Finding gifts for new moms can be tricky because you want to make her life easier rather than add to the chaos (and clutter). So when in doubt, what’s your best bet? Keep it practical, and think about presents that’ll make the transition into parenthood just a little bit simpler. This can be anything from a night light for late feedings to products for Mom’s self-care, to smart tech designed to simplify daily tasks. And by all means, a meal delivery or Amazon gift card will always, always be appreciated. After all, if there’s one person that’s deserving of a little something special, it’s any woman — be it your BFF, sister, coworker, or neighbor — who just birthed a child.

With an upended life and routine, now’s not the time to get a designer blouse or fancy jewelry as a new mother gift (although, she might love a birthstone necklace a little later down the road). What she needs most right now are things to make her life more streamlined — things that’ll help her leave the house faster, let her sleep more soundly (even if it’s just for a couple of hours), and allow her a few moments of calm in the midst of the whirlwind of motherhood. Below, we’ve narrowed down the best gift ideas for new moms, because we know what she *really* wants.
