After weeks of recovering, late-night feedings and getting to know her baby, it's time for the new mom to return to work. Giving her a gift to let her know you're thinking of her may make the transition just a bit smoother. Typically, a gift for the new working mom should focus on her and making the task of combining these two roles just a little easier.
Digital Photo Frame
A digital photo frame filled with images of her new baby won't replace having her baby around, but it may help cushion the separation anxiety certain to overtake her at times. Choose a digital photo frame with plenty of space and fill it with images of the new baby. Make the frame extra special by including some photos of her baby that she's never seen before.
Nanny Cam (Camera)
Perhaps one of the scariest aspects of making the jump from new stay-at-home mom to working mom is the act of leaving your baby in the hands of another. A nanny cam will give her the peace of mind that she would not otherwise have by allowing her to see her baby and his caregiver via live camera feed. Nanny cams come in various shapes and sizes from those that look like air purifiers to cameras hidden within working lamps.
With the sleepless nights involved in taking care of a new baby, one of the most daunting aspects of going back to work is the lack of relaxation new moms have received over the previous weeks. A spa day will allow her to relax and take time for herself before taking the plunge back into work. Give her a gift card that will allow for a massage, facial, manicure and pedicure.
Maid or Laundry Service
When taking care of a new baby, typical household duties such as dusting, laundry and other everyday household activities are sometimes neglected. When she begins work once again, these activities will become even more difficult to complete. Help her out by giving her a gift card for a maid or laundry service for the first week she's back on the job.
When meal preparations fall on a working new mom, her world can turn into one oversized and stressful task list. Prepare a week's worth of freezer meals for her first week back at work. Choose meals that she can easily pop in the microwave or warm in the oven before serving. This will take the stress out of providing meals for her family so she doesn't have to worry about meal prep along with all the other stress plaguing her.
