15 Unique Gifts for New Moms & More – Boxes by CrateJoy

Do you have a new or expecting mom that is hard to buy for?

How about a baby shower to attend, and you haven’t gotten a gift yet?

If you do, then you have come to the right place!

CrateJoy has created a line of one time purchase and subscription boxes that cater specifically to the pregnant mamas, new mamas, breastfeeding mamas, and beyond with their selection of new pregnancy gifts, self care gifts for new moms, breastfeeding boxes, and something special for those moms who are a little different or that have everything!

I received one of these boxes after I delivered my daughter and I have been hooked ever since. I have tried a number of them since then and subscribe to more than one.

With the holiday’s not far off right now you could get a head start on your Christmas shopping and not even have to leave the house and brave the busy mall. Literally, the best type of shopping is online shopping!

I have gone ahead and shared my favourite 15 CrateJoy boxes. They are available for multiple subscription options, and I know any mama that receives one of these boxes will be thrilled. They are all designed to pamper, please, and offer pick-me-ups during the tough months of pregnancy and the even tougher months of bringing home your baby and adjusting to life with a newborn. There really is something for everyone in this list!

Buying Guide

With fifteen boxes to choose from how do you know which one will be the perfect gift for that new mom?

I have a few tips to help you with your selection process:

–Is the woman you are buying for pregnant?

If yes, you are going to want to check out boxes 1 to 5. If not, keep reading.

–Is she a new mom? Is she breastfeeding or pumping?

If yes, check out boxes 6 to 10.

–Still don’t think you see anything perfect for her?

Check out these extra special boxes numbered 11 through 15 for those especially hard to buy for mamas.

  1. Hello, I have just read viewed your site and I think you are on to a winner with some of these ideas. I think that the products are very reasonably priced for a start and you cover so many ideas, that there is something there for even the most discerning of moms. Tell me do you know if there is anything in the organic range for a gift idea? Thanks, Kenny 

    1. Hi Kenny! 

      Now a lot of the boxes have only organic all natural products in them – The Crunchy Box is the ultimate organic, eco-friendly box. All of the products inside are as natural as can be!

  2. I have heard the name Crate Joy but I never knew what it was until now. The stork bag looks like a really cool gift for expecting moms. The mama bird box is a really sweet pick-me-up. Is this a subscription service? If so, how much is it monthly? I am definitely sharing this with all my friends. They’re great if your expecting,already a mom, or just want to send to a mom to give her a little gift. 

    1. Hi Evette, 

      They are subscription boxes – but also available for single month purchases. Each box has different choices for shipping. The cost of each is different, ranging from around $19.99 -$50.00 a month! 

  3. Hi Montana,

    Thanks so much for sharing this article, as I was looking on the internet for a gift to buy for a new mom, I came across your website and this article helped me a lot to find the right new mom to buy for my friend.

    I think if someone is looking to buy a new mom gift on the internet, they will love to read your article.

    This time my pick is The Cotton Booty, think my friend will love it! it’s so good to know this company makes worldwide box ships!

    what an amazing idea, it makes so simple to get a gift the person will love!

  4. I found this article to be very helpful. I have one sister that is pregnant and I would like to buy her a present that she will not forget. I would choose the blessings box but it ships only within united states. I think that I will choose number 2. Thanks for this interesting topic. It can be also a great gift for Valentine’s day.

  5. Hey Montana, excellent post. I love how you created a box for just about every type of mom and woman in general and centered it around moms. 

    Your post was innovative and very colorful, it would’ve been nice if some of that stuff was around when my wife was pregnant with my little boy but I’m going to save your post because there is some really good stuff on here for my wife as well as my sister who interested in having kids. 

    Great post, I love what you did with it and the direction, Good job!

  6. I think every new mom is hard to buy for! My sister in law is currently pregnant with her second and child and it was already difficult to buy a gift for her when she was pregnant with her first child. 

    I always want to give a gift that is both unique and useful, but I always have the hardest time coming up with ideas. I have never thought of a subscription box before, so thank you for enlightening me. I especially like the idea of the Bundlebee box (which I see was also your favorite) because it has items for both Mom and baby.

  7. Thank you for the information from Cratejoy. I will be checking them out further and may buy something for my wife. Wish I had this before when she was pregnant. Lots of great gift ideas which I am sure she would love. Please keep posts like this coming because gifts like these are what mothers want. 

    Can you please recommend one of your favorites for me to buy for my wife?

    Thanks and have a great day!

    Proud papa of two,

    Jody

  8. Hello Montana! I am quite angry about your article! WHERE IS THE FATHER’S GIFT? 

    Don’t worry I am just joking 🙂 

     I am also a father of two children just like you and I know it is very difficult to choose between the different products available in the market. As a father I wanted to buy some organic products for my wife and my 4 months old baby and I was completely lost and didn’t buy any. Lol 

    The first two boxes, The Blessings Box and The Ellie Mae Box are quite interesting but they don’t ship to France as you mentioned. 

    I have an opinion about subscription boxes that I would like to share with you and your audience. In my opinion, one month is too short and I don’t believe you’ll have the time to finish the first products you already received. Automatic buyer is not really suited for everyone, three months subscription is better I think. What is your point of view? 

    Thank you again and I am still waiting for my birth gift… haha

    1. haha! This is great – my spouse actually said the exact same thing while I was writing this! 

      IF you reaaally want to shop mens – here is the link! 

      Now, that really is an interesting way to put the shipping. I guess it would make sense that a month is not very long to get to try all of the products! Some women (like me) would probably power through those in no time though. There are a few boxes that ship once every three months to give you a little more time. They categorize the products included for the current time of year as well! 

  9. What a great round up – and just in time for the holiday season!
    Thank you, Montana, for including our Box (The Boobie Box™️). What a humbling surprise to see it on your list!
