Mother’s Day is the perfect day to show your appreciation for any mom you know, not just your own. And for new moms, this could be an overwhelming day. It’s something new and exciting, and with the right gifts for first time moms, you could make a new mom’s Mother’s day perfect!
You can give or do things to help a brand-new mom out. It can be as simple as letting her take a nap while you watch the baby. Trust me, there’s a great chance that a nap is at the top of her wish list.
Great Gifts For First-Time Moms
Let’s face it, all new moms are exhausted. Motherhood can be daunting for a first-time mom.
There are all sorts of fears and insecurities that bubble to the top of your mind when faced with such a huge responsibility.
Being a new mom can be scary. You are hit with the fact that you are responsible for a whole other person who literally relies on you to keep it alive. I remember poking my newborn several times a day to make sure he was still breathing! (Okay, I did the same thing with my daughter when she came along.)
I regret not filling out my son’s baby book! This gift would have been perfect for me. If my sister EVER has a baby I plan to snag a few pics from her social media (and take a bunch myself) and save her time while giving her a keepsake. This photo book would be perfect to fill with pictures of mom and baby!
All a new mom may need is a little rest, so don’t underestimate the importance of a good sleep mask. This contoured sleeping mask has amazing reviews and will help her catch some shut eye at any time of the day.
Speaking of exhausted moms…have you seen this adorable coffee measuring spoon? I’m not a new mom and I WANT this. (My oldest is 11.) Actually, she could use it for tea, sugar, rice cereal (when the baby is old enough) or all sorts of other items. I add milled flax seed to my smoothies. This would be perfect for that.
Useful – yet pretty- gifts for a new mom
Eleven years ago (then a year later), I was recovering from a c-section while feeling like an inept parent. That project in high school when we carried around plastic baby dolls and pretended to parent may have resulted in an easy A but definitely did not prepare me for motherhood or surgery recovery.
This post C-Section recovery basket is filled with practical and often forgotten items that make her recovery easier.
If she is breastfeeding, this simple yet elegant nursing bracelet would make a great gift. It’s both functional and pretty.
When I was a new mom, I remember drinking lots and lots of Mother’s Milk Tea! My every waking thought was on my milk supply. After my babies weaned, the tea was replaced with my favorite coffee (Tully’s French Roast). This mug will definitely get used and it’s funny!
This baby washcloth bouquet is gorgeous and gender neutral. I might be biased because this was the same color scheme I chose for both of my kids. It would be a great baby shower gift or a new mom gift!
These heart shaped candles are perfect reminders for her to take some time for herself and they smell divine.
This new mom keychain, engraved with baby’s birth stats is a little more traditional but will also help you remember the answers to common new mom questions! (Mom Brain is real, folks.)
