Whether a baby arrives in the winter, spring, fall, or summer, moms are guaranteed to face a whirlwind of emotions and change. From missing out on much-needed sleep to grappling with breastfeeding or bottle-feeding duties, striking the right balance of child care with a partner, taking older kids into consideration, and simply letting time pass to feel healed-up physically, everyone knows that women with a newborn at home have a lot on their plates. 

To be real: No matter when they've given birth, moms who have recently brought a newborn home deserve extra support, love, and maybe also a comfy robe and bath salts.

But welcoming a little one around the holiday season can feel like a whole different ballgame. Sure, there may be built-in celebrations during which the in-laws or friends can swing by to meet the new addition. But festivities and expectations around them may only serve to amplify an already overwhelming moment. After all, even if a sister-in-law is prepping Thanksgiving dinner or there are no big plans on the calendar for New Year's Eve, there's an unspoken pressure to be social -- even if a new mom just wants to be curled up and comfy, bonding with her LO at home. 

For that reason, it makes sense to seek out thoughtful, multipurpose gifts that are especially geared toward celebrating a new mom and life with an infant.

From self-care-promoting beauty and bath sets to organizational systems to simplify the process of preserving memories galore, as well as a bevy of other beautiful options, here are 20 gifts that are perfect for the gift recipient who is going through the holiday season with a newborn.
