New moms are really tricky to gift for their first Mother’s Day. Sentimental is always good – see 8 personalized Mother’s Day gift ideas here – but sometimes practical is the way to go. Here are 18 things any mom would love to get for Mother’s Day, but I created this list with new mommas in mind. It’s a mix of practical stuff she’ll want to wear, easy ways to pamper herself, and a few things to remind her that she’s still herself aside from being a mom. Bonus – they all ship with Amazon Prime, so they’re on your doorstep in 2 days!
Best Mother’s Day Gifts for a First Mother’s Day
Initial Necklace – this one is rose gold and so cute for baby’s initial (see more CUTE initial necklaces) // Glass Water Bottle – my favorite way to get a little more hydration is this glass water bottle wrapped in silicon for protection – no plastic chemicals. I love that you only need one finger to flip it open. // Amazon Echo Dot – my absolute favorite helper around the house. Plays music (hi, soothing playlist!) and the Echos can even act as a microphone to other rooms, so you can use it to tell your husband to bring you some water if he’s in another room with an Echo. Also good for calling your phone when you can’t find it 😉 // Pearl Earrings – these are way cute and under $10. Treat yo’self! // Rose Gold Backpack Diaper Bag – only $40 and REALLY cute! Would be great for new moms and moms who have to carry ALLTHETHINGS for their preschoolers, too // Grey Tee – these are a holy grail tee! They’re stretchy and drapey and have an expensive look.
GOOD Black Leggings – even if you don’t believe leggings are pants, if you’re a mom, you need these leggings. They have the highest waist and hold EVERYTHING in. Worth it! // Hand Lettering Kit – new moms don’t have a ton of time for hobbies or crafts, but it is always nice to take a break to do something for yourself. Learning hand lettering is on my list as a fun creative outlet! Only $17 // Ceramic Diffuser – this is so pretty and I love having a diffuser next to our bed. I am NOT loyal to any brand of essential oils and you can even grab some on Amazon – not sure about their purity/efficacy but they work to scent a space 😉 Lavender helps to calm and promote good sleep, clutch for new moms // Striped Cardigan with Finger Holes – this is SO cute and perfect for the postpartum stages
Girl, Wash Your Face – I’m really excited to read this book! Has really good reviews about how to stop believing lies you tell yourself that are holding you back. // Ray-Ban Erika Sunglasses – these are classic and great to cover up under-eye circles 🙂 // Satin Floral Robe – $12 and an easy way to feel pretty & put together, even when you’re leaking milk 😉 // Rose Quartz Facial Roller – this little device is supposed to alleviate tired, puffy skin. Perfect for all moms! // Aloe Plant – literally the only kind of plant I can keep alive. Only have to water it about once a week and so good to have around to use on sunburns or whatever.
Marble Makeup Bag – perfect for holding all the concealer for new mommas 😉 and under $15! // UGG Slippers – these are not cheap but they are worth every penny! A great slipper for wearing around the house – or out of the house // Ruffled PJ Set – I’m obsessed with these – buying them for myself. Under $30 and such great reviews!
