But what about postpartum? When a mom gives birth, use one of these gift ideas from your ministry to bless her and her family. Family Ministry Ideas: 9 Perfect Postpartum Gifts for New Moms Oh-so-practical: Fill a basket with practical items, such as baby nail clippers, bulb syringe, thermometer, bibs, socks, wipes, diapers, pacifiers, burp cloths, and onesies. Fill the basket, wrap it in cellophane, and tie it with a ribbon. Just for Mom: Pamper Mom with peppermint foot-massage cream. If you really want to be like Jesus, give her a foot massage. Free babysitting: Give Mom and Dad a dozen coupons for free babysitting. Special delivery: Call ahead, then have pizza or Chinese food delivered to give Mom a break postpartum. Deal a meal: Have church members sign up to deliver meals for an entire month. Hotline: Give new moms the phone numbers of parents who’d be willing to answer any question at any time — even in the middle of the night. Nondegree program: Much like prenatal class, invite parents to a special four-week postpartum class to cover the basics of Christian parenting. Gift of life: Plant a tree or donate to a charity in the child’s name. Write it down: Give the new parents a special journal to write prayers and thoughts about their new child.
