Rihanna's Awesome Gift to Adele Inspires Thoughtful 'New Mom' Gift Ideas

rihanna Rihanna did something damn cool recently. And it didn't involve throwing a drink in Chris Brown's face. The pop star gave Adele's brand new baby some really adorable gifts, and then gave something to Adele. You know, the woman who just carried around a baby for nine months and then pushed it out of her vagina. Seems like a time for a gift if there ever was one. And we're not talking push presents of Rachel Zoe-proportions here, we're just talking a little something to let mama know you're thinking of her.

Here's what Rihanna got her songstress pal -- and other great gift ideas for new moms.

Lingerie! What RiRi bought DelDel. Supposedly, Rihanna sent some sexy lingerie to the new mom, along with a card that read: "You gotta stay sexy, yummy mummy. Enjoy yourself. Congrats." Cute! And a great idea.

A robe or comfy PJs. New moms spend a lot of time in "comfy clothes." AKA sweatpants and yoga pants. Giving a pal a soft robe or a pair of hole-less sweats will undoubtedly be very appreciated.

Lotion. A bit odd? Perhaps. But nothing feels as good as a hot shower does for a new mother. She'll be grateful to slather on something sweet-smelling and fun afterwards. (I vote Coconut Skin Trip!)

A good book. Will she have time to read it? Eh, eventually. You know what? A stack of magazines is probably better.

Slippers -- or flip flops if it's warm out. Again, new motherhood isn't exactly the time for getting dolled up, so the comfier -- and easier to get on -- the better.

Did you get any thoughtful new mom gifts?

    Sunglasses are a fun idea too, especially if it's spring or summer! Something to help a new mom feel glamorous, without time or commitment (or makeup!)

    The best gift to give a new mom is FOOD! Fill her fridge and freezer with wonderful meals and snacks and some treats to pull out as well. The last thing she has the time and energy to do is be cooking and baking!

    The gift of time and compassion is one of the best ever! Three of my closest friends came over when I went into labor the last time and cleaned my home top to bottom. They filled the freezer with meals that were ready for the crockpot or oven. I felt so very blessed and loved :)
