Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and while there are plenty of meaningful gifts available, buying for a new mom can be a challenge. See, new moms receive plenty of baby bottles, onesies, and bibs at their shower, but other than more sleep, what else do they really need? Probably something to help her relax, feel a little cozier, prettier or maybe even something to just let her know that she’s appreciated.
When shopping for first Mother’s Day gifts, there are two routes to take: pretty or practical. A few items on this list of first Mother’s Day gifts fall into both categories (manicures are totally practical, right?). Mothering is no easy task, so let the new mom in your life know how much you (both) love and appreciate her with one of these first Mother’s Day gifts for new moms. (And Mama, if you’re the one reading this, I wholeheartedly endorse leaving this page up on the computer you share with your partner—here’s hoping they’ll take the hint!)
