If the mother-to-be already is a subscriber to Netflix, consider giving an Criterion Channel subscription, which streams hundreds of acclaimed titles from around the world and from the past century. Or if she’s less impressed by the variety of choices and wants to be able to enjoy a favorite show, an Amazon gift card can allow her to rent exactly what she’s looking for in the Prime Video collection. Gift card from Kindred Bravely (varies) The cost of nursing clothes is high, and very seldom does moms receive the exact product she’s looking for in the size she requires. Make it easy for you to give your mom a gift card to Kindred Bravely, the online nursing and maternity store that is highly recommended by Wirecutter staff mothers. KB offers a great range of clothing and accessories that include cozy pajama sets as well as practical and chic T-shirt outfits, and some of the top nursing bras out there. The Kindred Bravely French Terry Racerback is one of our top picks. Yeti Lowlands Blanket ($200 at the at the time of its publication) One of our most loved picnic blankets from testing the premium Yeti Lowlands blanket ideal for park dates and backyard hangouts with new babies. It is as soft as a comforter, and can also stand up to food spills or bodily leaks due to its waterproof underside and spill-resistant top. When it eventually does get dirty, the blanket can be thrown into the washer and dryer (this blanket is also the sole one we’ve tested that can withstand both). It folds down into a portable carrying case (9 by 9 inches by 5 inches) to make it easy to transport with a stroller or in a car. Roomba i3 from iRobot ($250 at the date of publication) When you think about the duties of new parents taking care of their floors is probably not highest on their list of priorities. Take the job off their shoulders by providing our top-pick robot vacuum, the Roomba i3 EVO from iRobot, which will handle all the chores for them. It’s intelligent enough to sweep the entire surface of a house in a generally well-organized pattern, with no the missing spots. It’s also extremely durable, should it fall down a flight of steps. It was also better at picking up pet hair than other models we looked at and this is an advantage for mother-to-be who has puppies at home! Athleta Salutation Jogger (about $90 at the date of publication) In those times after having a baby when the new mom needs to dress in clothes, but requires comfort, athleisure is here to save the day. A pair of elastic but fashionable pants will make her feel just a little more put together. The Athleta Salutation Jogger is just that. With a large waistband, stretch fabric through the legs, and numerous color options, it suits all kinds of bodies and styles. Michel Cluizel gourmet chocolate truffles ($40 at the at the time of publication) This isn’t original however it’s a classic: Great chocolates will delight nearly any person. Also, Parisian chocolatier Michel Cluizel makes some of the most delicious chocolate truffles we’ve ever tried.
