Of course, the most useful and best gift to receive as a new mom is food. This Taco Box is just beyond cool! It would definitely stand out from all the other casseroles and lasagnas. It's thoughtful and crazy creative! You can make one yourself and customize it for the receiving family.
The other gift I just came upon is from a company called Citrus Lane. For $25 a month you get a box with really great products that are age appropriate for your baby. The companies they source are all the types of products I'd buy: organic, design savvy, super cute and educational. I just bought a six months subscription. A box of goodies in the mail can really make your day. It's the kind of thing that can help you forget your sweet baby puking her brains out in the middle of a museum gallery, which of course got you both kindly ushered out. This would be a cool gift to receive!
