Valentine's gifts for moms

New and expectant moms deserve a little extra love year-round, but especially on Valentine's Day. To help you shop for the mom in your life, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite Kindred Bravely items for new moms. Whether you’re shopping for your partner, daughter, or friend, we'd love to help you make her Valentine’s Day extra special with a thoughtful gift she’ll adore. 

For all those new moms out there, we hope you find a moment this Valentine’s Day to celebrate the love in your life and remember how much you deserve to be loved. We know you're always loving, encouraging, and caring for everyone, and it's so easy to forget yourself. This year be your own Valentine: find some time to practice self-care, indulge in something luxurious, and treat yourself to comfort and coziness.

As a bonus, since we love celebrating love, we’ve also included a few of our team’s favorite (quarantine-friendly) Valentine’s Day traditions.

This airy lounge dress is the ultimate two-in-one, doubling as a super-cute nightgown. It’ll quickly become a wardrobe staple whether she’s pregnant, postpartum, or beyond. Both adorable and practical, the Eleanora has a nursing panel to make it easy to feed her little one at home or on the go. The super-soft, premium bamboo fabric makes it comfortable enough to wear all day and night. And yes, it has pockets!

Lucille Maternity and Nursing Nightgown

The perfect gift for moms who want something flirty, sweet, and super comfy, the Lucille features a flattering empire waist, which allows room for her baby bump or postpartum belly. Clip-down cups and light support make it the ideal choice for nighttime feedings, and the beautiful lace racerback bodice keeps straps in place while she nurses. This romantic nightgown will accentuate any new mom’s natural beauty.

Emmaline Robe

The Simply Sublime Nursing Bra is an essential piece for any pregnant or nursing mom. The drop-down cups are smooth and seamless, while the stretchy fabric allows for fluctuations in cup size.

Simply Sublime® Lace Racerback Nursing Bra

Bring a little fun into her maternity or nursing wardrobe with this chic (dare we say sexy?) nursing bra. The pullover, racerback style and removable padding make it ideal for everyday wear, and the beautiful lace back detail makes the everyday feel like a special occasion. Pregnant moms will love the comfortable, wire-free design, and breastfeeding moms will appreciate the easy, clip-down nursing access.

Ultra Comfort Smooth Maternity Bikini

maternity underwear bikini style

With a modern design and comfortable under-the-bump cut that works equally well postpartum, the Ultra Comfort Smooth Maternity Bikini will be her new favorite underwear. Constructed for a “no-show” fit, these seamless panties are laser cut with bonded edges for the smoothest of silhouettes. The smooth, low-rise waist is velvety soft and designed to stay put -- no rolling, slipping, digging, or bunching!

Ultra Comfort Smooth High Rise Bikini

postpartum panties

Made of the same incredible fabric as the Maternity Bikini, these seamless postpartum panties have a sculpting high-rise waist. They feel like a second skin and disappear under clothing, giving her the coverage she wants without the VPLs (visible panty lines). Perfect for all her favorite leggings!

Pro tip! Both of our Ultra Comfort panties pair perfectly with our Ultra Comfort Smooth Maternity Lounge Bra.

KB Valentine’s Day Ideas

“My husband and I have a tradition of each picking a new recipe to make on Valentine’s Day, and then we cook together.”

“Once I got my hubby a gift from Man Crates, and it was a hit.”

“My husband and I are doing a cooking class (virtual this year). We started this a couple of years ago. We do the cooking class a week or so before, then make the dinner together for Valentine’s Day. What I’m getting him from my older son is a daddy playdate. I am setting them up with a full day of activities that will include breakfast, the park, and a dance party after a nap.”

“Starting February 1, for each of our kids, we put a heart with something we love about them on their door; we do that every day until Valentine’s Day. On Valentine’s Day, we love for them to wake up to something special... balloons or flowers and donuts. And usually chocolate. It always made me feel special as a kid when my dad would do that (and he would leave for work before we even woke up!), so we do the same.”

“We do a heart-themed dinner. I make whatever they’re into eating at the time. Dye the milk pink, cut the sandwich into a heart. Last year, I cut up string cheese into heart shapes. I sprinkled pink sprinkles over it, threw some appropriately colored/shaped fruit on the plate, etc.: easy, cheap, and reproducible in its own way every year. I also like to use Valentine’s Day-themed paper plates and napkins. And of course, we all wear pink/red during the day.”

No matter how you celebrate Valentine's Day, we hope you remember you're loved – this day and every day.
