Dry Farm Wines Subscription

The Bouqs Company Flowers

Rather than waste money on flowers sold at retail locations, consider The Bouqs Company. Flowers are cut to order and delivered straight to customers from farms, which means they can last a whopping two to three weeks.


A Shopping Spree, Alone

Exhausted new moms rarely have time to themselves and if she’s shopping with kids, her time spent looking is often short-lived. Arrange for her to have a day completely to herself with no time limit on when she needs to return home. She can spend the day buying things she may not normally have time to look at and splurge on items just for herself.

Name Bar Necklace

A sentimental and personalized gift that is well thought out is a home run when it comes to a great Valentine’s Day gift for new moms. You can’t go wrong with jewelry and adding her baby’s name and birthstone to something pretty is a thoughtful way to mark her first Valentine’s Day as a new mom.

A Maid Service

An exhausted mom knows that a clean and organized house brings peace and relaxation, but it’s hard to find the time when your energy is drained. Hiring a housekeeper to do some deep cleaning is a great Valentine’s Day gift because it ends up being a huge weight lifted off her shoulders. It’s one less thing she has to juggle in a day that is typically jam-packed.
