With the holidays in full swing, let’s put new momspostpartum moms — on your radar for this year’s gift-giving.

After you’ve just had a baby, everything can be such a blur. You can barely remember to take a shower or get any sleep because you’re so focused on your newborn. And we sometimes forget that new moms need our support just as much as new babies do.

Here are three helpful (and luxurious) gifts that show you care about taking care of mom, too. Because honestly, sometimes she won’t ask for the help and support she really needs.

Bodily Care for Birth Box, $105

The Care for Birth box from Bodily is the ultimate care package for new parents, from birth recovery to breastfeeding.

In this box, you have everything from mesh undies to postpartum guide books. There’s also an inflatable cushion, cozy grippy socks and a peri wash bottle, all focused on healing and comfort.

There are two versions of the birth box, one for vaginal births and one for C-sections. The Care for Birth box is $105, while the C-Kit, which includes items for incision care, is $90.

Proof Postpartum Leak-Proof Underwear, $39 and up

When new moms finish their supply of mesh undies, or if they want to skip them altogether, Proof has got them covered “for the leaks no one warned you about.”

Proof postpartum leak-proof underwear offers a super-absorbent core and moisture-wicking lining, keeping new moms fresh, dry and comfortable as their body is adjusting to postpartum. They’re also stretchy, reusable and machine washable.

Not only that, but they’re pretty. They come in bikini and hipster designs, with the bikini retailing for $39 and holding up to four regular tampons. The hipster design retails for $43 and holds up to five regular tampons. Look, nobody likes talking about the normal bleeding that comes after giving birth. Hand these to a new mom, and she will thank you.

Malaya Organics Body Oil, $45 and up

To keep new moms’ skin feeling nourished, try Malaya Organics moisturizing body oil in citrus and bloom. Not only will this body oil soften dry skin, but it will also help keep skin supple, improving elasticity, which new moms need on places like their post-pregnancy belly.

The oil is also rich in antioxidants and includes argan and rosehip oils, helping to reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks. Moms will definitely appreciate the simple after-shower indulgence. The ingredients are a blend of 100% pure and organic essential oils cultivated from organic farming. The 2 fluid ounce size retails for $45, while the 4 fluid ounce size is $78.

New moms will definitely thank you for any and all of these!
