Creating a perfect homemade present for a new mommy may be tricky. Most people decide to make a present for a baby, however, let’s try to make mommy happy and give her something she would enjoy. If you are looking for such a gift, to put a smile on her face, and hopefully give her something useful, you are on the right page.

Keep reading and you will discover five top DIY gift ideas for new moms.

1. Jewelry Organizer

With a new family member in the house, every mother needs to get organized, especially with her jewelry. Some rings or hairpins are so small that they are at high risk of being easily swallowed by a newborn. Since it is very dangerous and can lead to serious health problems, mom’s jewelry should not be in an easily accessible place. A cute and efficient organizer can help her with that.

How to make:

You will need two planks of wood, paint as well as hooks and hinges.

Paint the wooden planks with the color of your choice, preferably the one the new mommy likes. Attach them with hinges and add hooks to them for necklaces, rings, earrings, and so on. If you are good at painting, draw something elegant on your organizer to make it more festive.

2. Photo Collage

New mommies usually take millions of pictures of their newborns in the pursuit of capturing their first smile, first crawl, and their new outfit. How about making baby photo collages with the cutest and funniest pictures instead of simply storing images on the phone or computer? Next to being a great gift idea, it is also an ideal way to preserve these precious memories of the baby’s first months on this planet. A great tip is instead of messing up the entire apartment with glue and glitter in the pursuit of making a photo collage manually, use a collage-making program.

How to make:

You will need roughly ten photos and a photo collage making software.

First of all, think of a theme for your future work first – the baby’s first months of life or the first reunion of the extended family. Browse through predesigned templates and choose the most adorable one for the baby. Right after, add photos and spice it up with some inspirational quotes. If you want to include some crafting, check out the collection of cute clipart. Want a colorful and fun frame? Go through an extensive gallery and pick the one you like the most. Finally, print it out and put it in a lovely frame.

3. Floral Letter

It is a very cute and inspiring idea to decorate the new mommy’s apartment. A floral monogram is a way to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere effortlessly and quickly.

How to make:

You will need a wooden letter – M for Mary or G for George, etc., some flowers, glue, a nail, and a string.

Glue the flowers to the letter. Try to have a selection of different flowers to make your work more colorful and exciting. Then glue the string to the opposite side of the letter and attach the nail to the wall. Now hang your flower arrangement on the nail and you’re done!

4. Baby Sling

Instead of purchasing an expensive baby carrier, you can make an adorable and super helpful baby sling at home. A new mommy needs to do grocery shopping and run other errands, sometimes she simply wants to spend some time outdoors and take a walk in the park.

And dragging a heavy and inflexible carrier is challenging and not always necessary. A baby sling will allow her to be more mobile and movable.

How to make:

You will need a piece of fabric, a needle and thread, and scissors.

Lay out the fabric on the floor and cut it in half to get two long pieces. Then iron them, pin and hem the edges. You can add some cute decorations like ribbons or drawings.

5. Recipe Box

Every new mommy is concerned about baby nutrition. And when the baby gets older, she or he needs to be fed a balanced healthy diet. You can help her to create a nutritious menu and give her an original healthy recipe box.

How to make:

You will need a box – a shoebox, wooden box, or any other (practically any box you can find will suffice), and recipe cards.

Get a middle-sized box and decorate it with stickers, drawings, and family pictures. Prepare a set of great recipes you can find and think of, write them down on the cards and place them inside the box.

Hopefully, you have found an idea that you like and now you are ready to start getting crafty.
