If there's a new mom in your life, it's important to get a high-quality gift. Jewelry is often the go-to choice.
The birth of a child is a truly miraculous and important occasion for everyone in the family, but it’s an especially emotional time for the mother. If there’s a new baby on the way, you might be wondering what is the best gift for a new mom.
While baby clothes and toys are great for the baby shower, jewelry makes for a lovely heartfelt gift for an expectant mother at any time.
Jewelry for new mothers tends to be similar to Mother’s Day jewelry, but there are a few important differences. Mother’s Rings are a popular choice, which feature the name of the child or children and their birthstones. If this is their first child, you can get a ring with a single birthstone and name.
However, make sure you make this purchase only after these details are already certain. You don’t want to purchase fine jewelry and then find out the baby is due early and you chose the wrong birthstone! Generally, Mother’s Rings make a great gift after the baby is already born.
While heart-shaped and “love” themed jewelry is often common for Mother’s Day, it’s best to emphasize the baby when you’re shopping for an expectant mother. Pendants featuring baby-related shapes, like a pair of little feet or a baby carriage, can be a nice choice. Symbolic jewelry with animals can also make a cute gift. For instance, a bird’s nest with eggs, or small birds following after their mother can look great.
Baby Heartbeat and Hand Print Jewelry
You might be surprised to learn that you can actually make custom jewelry with the baby’s heartbeat or physical features like the hand print, footprint, or fingerprint. All you need is a graph of the heartbeat or a copy of their print, and a custom jeweler can transform the image into a beautiful pendant in silver, gold or platinum. Of course, this kind of gift might be less of a surprise, but it still makes a lovely and memorable piece of jewelry for the mom.
