20 Gifts New Moms Actually Want (But Won’t Ask For)

Hey, you! Yes, you. Are you a mom? I thought so. I could smell the scent of your second pot of coffee brewing and yesterday’s body spray. (hi, Febreze!)

Wait, you don’t use Febreze to cover the smell of puke you wiped off your mom pants the day before?

Ohhh, crap! That’s me!! Call off the dogs!

Well, if you’re a Mama, and still reading this, hand over your cell phone (or laptop if you’re old school like me) to your husband, boyfriend, sister, co-worker, or baby daddy for that matter! Yes, RIGHT NOW. I’m going to get you hooked up, girl! Don’t worry, you can thank me later.


Hi, there! I’m Brandi and I know what your girl wants and needs. No, it ain’t like that! I am her virtual bestie that cares about her happiness, sanity, and well-being.  Your girl busts her tail every day raising little hellions into young well-mannered citizens of society. She deserves some love, attention, and recognition for her hard work.

Do you know how many times a day she sweeps crackers off the floor without losing her marbles? Do you realize she has 2,569 answers to the question: “But, why?” Have you noticed that she manages to keep a smile on her face despite running on Puff snacks and 3-4 hours of sleep at night?

You better pop out that Visa and show your homegirl, lover, friend, the best Mama in the world,” what she means to you!

Here are 20 gifts modern moms actually want, but won’t ask for. Do your girl a favor, don’t make her ask.
