First Mother’s Day Gifts for New Moms
What to Get for a First Mother’s Day Gift
Between baby showers and all the gifts people bring after the birth, Mom may have gotten everything she registered for. But it can’t hurt to check and see if there is one more thing that she didn’t get yet. See if she still needs a baby carrier, some feeding supplies, or even baby-proofing products. It may be tricky for her to find time to get all the baby stuff she needs while caring for her little one, so you’ll be helping her out with this gift.
Picture Frames & Photo Albums
Her first year as a new mom will go by so quickly, and she may need some help slowing down to remember it all. Look for baby books and journals where she can record thoughts, memories, and milestones. Baby keepsakes, like birth certificate holders or footprint kits, will make it easy to record memories of her time as a new mom.
Spa Gift Basket
She’s spending a lot of time taking care of another person, so Mom could use some time to take care of herself. Get her a spa gift basket and add a gift certificate to a local spa for a massage, facial, or pedicure. Then, make sure she has a babysitter lined up so she can use it, even if that means volunteering yourself. If you’re on a budget and you’re good at polishing nails, offer to come to her house and give her a manicure during one of Baby’s naps.
One thing that can be said about new moms everywhere is that they have their hands full. Between holding and caring for a baby and juggling other daily responsibilities, she can use all the help she can get. A smart assistant is a useful tool that will respond to voice commands to answer questions, help keep her organized, play music, and even make hands-free phone calls. This new tech is constantly getting more intelligent and capable, with free software updates adding new features regularly. Any new mom will appreciate this smart device that brings big convenience in a small package.
Clothes & Accessories
If Mother’s Day falls soon after the birth, there’s a good chance the new mom is struggling to find something to wear. During that time where her pre-baby clothes are still too small but her maternity clothes are too big, a few accessories can make it easier to repeat the outfits that do fit. Find her a cotton scarf or wrap in a bright, colorful print that will flatter her face — even if she didn’t get a full night of sleep. It’s best if it’s machine washable, too.
A beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers is always a welcome gift, especially on Mother’s Day. If you know her favorite flowers and they are in season, be sure to get those. Otherwise, a cheerful bunch of tulips or Gerbera daisies would be a lovely seasonal option that is sure to brighten her day and decor. Flowers may not feel as creative as other options, but there’s a reason this classic gift is a tried-and-true Mother’s Day favorite.
