Need gift ideas for mom's first Mothers Day?
Time has gone by so quickly! I can't believe it's actually time for my first Mother's Day as a new mom! After months of endless feedings, diapers, and the highest of highest (and, let's be real, some of the lowest of lows), mom deserves some pampering. As I appreciate that new moms can be extremely difficult to buy gifts for, and I know it's easier said than done to find the perfect gift, I figured I'd share my suggestions for gift ideas for new moms.

A Few Things to Keep in Mind, When Shopping for a Mother's Day Gift:
Before we get started, after the success of this little warning section in Christmas Gift Ideas for Adult Children, I thought I'd offer a few high-level suggestions when you're shopping for Mother's Day gifts for a new mom, which can be, to put it mildly, a bit of a minefield, I'd imagine.
Don't make another chore for mom
Being a new mom is hard for many reasons. And one of the very well-documented reasons is carrying the weight of making one million decisions each and every, single day, not to mention keeping the entire family's ever-fluctuating schedule, mostly in your mind.
Figuring out what mom wants for Mother's Day shouldn't be something that *mom* has to add to her lengthy to-do list.
Sure! Ask mom what she wants. And if she says "I don't know," then you figure it out for her! Of course, you've already taken the dive by ending up on this blog - so I have faith in you.
Get her a gift that's actual for *her*
Gifts for baby are great. Baby clothes are great. Commemorative gifts are great. But mom needs a gift, too. Mom needs a gift that is *just for mom."
End of story.
First Mothers Day Gift Ideas
After months of weird, ultra-stretchy maternity pajamas, followed by even more months of spit-up-covered pajamas (well, spit-up-covered everything), I made a special splurge and bought myself some LAKE pajamas, after seeing them promoted online for months. I was definitely not disappointed. I'm the proud owner of 3 pairs, and I'm sure I won't be going back to my old sorority tshirts anytime soon.
Stemless Wine Glasses
No glass of wine ever tasted so good as the first glass of champagne when we got home from the hospital! And no wine glass ever crashed to the floor and broke as quickly...Admit defeat, and celebrate mom's return to wine with some nice, stemless wine glasses for after baby goes to bed.
Get a large enough gift card. Check her calendar. Schedule it. Book a sitter. That last bit is key.
Dyson Hair Dryer
Mom needs to save all the time she can. Especially in these early days, squeezing in any form of basic hygiene can be difficult, though of course it is the key to starting to feel "normal" again! Saving time getting dressed is one of the easiest (and most thoughtful!) ways to help out a new mom. My husband actually bought me this amazing Dyson hair dryer during the pandemic and I've become a believer. Not only does it dry my hair in 1/4 of the time, it also makes my hair shinier and more manageable. Can't ask for more than that.
Mommy & Me Hill House Dresses
The season's trendiest dress has a baby version for mom's mini me! With a forgiving bodice and voluminous skirt, Hill House's "nap dresses" are on-trend, comfortable, and forgiving for a new mama's new figure.
Molton Brown Lotion
All that hand washing is taking its toll. Give her Molton Brown.
Luxury Bubble Bath
In the unlikely event that mama has enough time for a bubble bath, you'd might as well make it worth her while!
Thanks for stopping by!
I hope I gave you some great gift ideas for a new mom's first Mother's Day! Have a wonderful time celebrating on her first Mother's Day!! Don't you dare let her change a diaper.
