There are actually lots of ways to make new and pregnant moms smile, most of them involving food, cleaning, and babysitting. But if you’re far away, here’s a great way to make her feel great: This wonderful new monthly gift box service catering just to new and pregnant moms.

Monthly delivery services are hot now, and Petite Box is taking on the new mom market with lovingly curated boxes of eco-friendly and useful gifts. The boxes feel truly posh and hold four to seven different items carefully chosen by experts to maximize the happiness of mom and baby for a particular stage of development, from 17 weeks pregnant to 12 months old.

Some of our favorite brands are included, like Dr. Hauschka, Haba toys,
, and MD Moms. The one we sampled included a beautiful lovey, some
MAM binkies, and great tips on life with a three-month old.

You can subscribe by the month for $25 (including shipping) or buy a three or six-month subscription for a slight discount. And from what we’ve seen, these are the sorts of gifts that will wow all the moms at the baby shower, right before they all chime in on how indispensable they are.
If you can’t be there in person to see her face and bring her cupcakes, this is one gift that will still guarantee a smile.~Delilah
