When it comes to giving gifts to your child’s birth mother, simple and from the heart always works best. You don’t need to spend a lot to show that you remember her. Gifts could be given at the hospital, on her birthday, or for Birth Mother’s Day (the day before Mother’s Day). is always adding new items. Here are five ideas to help you show her she’s loved.

1. This ring:

It features the phrase, “Adoption is another word for love.” This is a nice, positive message for birth mom to look down and be reminded of. Because of the width of the ring, I feel like it could be unisex and therefore a possible gift for birth dad too, if he is involved.

2. This beautiful adoption triad necklace:

Three hearts represent the birth family, adoptive family, and child. Even if she doesn’t wear it out every day, she can still hang it on a mirror in her room or keep it as a keepsake. Adoptive mom or a female adoptee will love this too.

3. This book which provides comfort and tells 23 birth mother’s stories:

Being a birth mother can feel very isolating due to lack of public awareness and understanding. Knowing there are other women like her can be enormously helpful for your child’s birth mom. The woman who compiled this book is a birth mother herself. It would also be sweet to write a personalized note in the front inside cover from you or your child.

4. This simple journal:

This journal features the adoption symbol on the cover. Journaling can be therapeutic for anyone and would especially be useful to birth moms who are going through a difficult time in their lives. Insert a photo of your child on the first page as a little surprise.

5. This ornament:

Send her this Christmas tree ornament, maybe with a card from your child or a photo. It’s a nice reminder that she is loved during the holiday season. Holidays can be especially emotional for people, since it’s a time centered around family. This small gesture shows her she is considered family.
