10 Special First Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

gift ideas for first mother's day

A new mom’s first Mother’s Day is a milestone event that allows you to celebrate an incredible woman and her new bundle of joy. If you’re looking for first Mother’s Day gift ideas from husbands or friends, there are plenty of opportunities to find presents she’ll treasure. You might choose flowers, a practical gift, a self-care splurge, or some cute mama clothes and accessories. 

Whatever you pick, find a way to make her feel special with a meaningful gift that celebrates her hard work of bringing a new life into the world. Here are a few excellent options for the new mother in your life.

1. Flowers

Mother’s Day flowers provide a great gift on their own or as part of a larger present. When buying flowers for Mother’s Day, consider the new mom’s favorite flowers and add some seasonal blooms for a delightful bouquet. Also, pay attention to elements like the color scheme and the vase to make a stylish and unique statement. 

2. Baby Album

As a new or expecting mother, the woman in your life probably feels pretty sentimental. You can give her a gift that lets her commemorate her baby with a photo album or journal. 

Consider purchasing a family photo session for quality photos to put in the album. You could also buy a photo printer that allows her to print pictures directly from her phone. 

3. A Day Out

A new mother’s life can be hectic and exhausting. Give her time to herself with the gift of a day without the little one. You might offer a shopping day, a picnic in the park, a facial, or a visit to the salon. On the day out, let her sleep in and make her breakfast so that she feels refreshed and energized for her special day. 

4. Personalized Jewelry

Jewelry gives the new mom a wearable reminder of her child, so she always has a piece of her baby with her wherever she goes. You have many options for Mother’s Day jewelry, including a birth flower necklace, a birthstone ring, or an initial necklace. Find a piece matching her style that she’ll treasure forever.

5. Baby Products

While she may already have some baby products, Mother’s Day allows you to go beyond the essentials. Consider items like a diaper caddy for the nursery to hold diapers, wipes, burp cloths, diaper cream, and a brush. 

A breastfeeding mother might appreciate products like a breastmilk cooler bottle for simple transport when she’s on the go. Another option is to buy breast therapy packs, which provide hot or cold pain relief to soothe sore breasts. 

6. Pajamas

Whether she’s feeding the baby in the middle of the night or relaxing with her child the following morning, new pajamas make a new mom feel comfortable and beautiful. Buy her a new pajama set or a robe she can grab when she gets chilly. Along with pajamas, you might gift slippers to cushion her achy feet and a satin pillowcase so that she can get some restful sleep while protecting her postpartum hair. 

7. Care and Pampering Products

Caring for an infant might leave a new mother with little time for herself. Give her the care she deserves with products like:

  • Shower steamers
  • Lip balm
  • Lotion
  • Body cream
  • Face oil
  • Perfume
  • Epsom salts
  • Spa bath pillow
  • Bathtub tray
  • Dry shampoo
  • Heated neck and shoulder wrap
  • Essential oil diffuser

Make the gift even sweeter by watching her new baby so that she has the time for an at-home spa day. Beyond these products, you could add hair accessories like a claw clip or a new hairdryer brush for easy styling. 

8. Food

Gift the new mother her favorite snacks, delicious pastries, chocolate, or other treats. That way, she can eat some tasty foods while she enjoys a relaxing Mother’s Day. You can also plan a special brunch that shows her how much love and support surrounds her.

9. Tote Bag and Pouches

The new mom needs to carry a lot of stuff. She’ll want diapers, plastic bags, a onesie, wipes, diaper cream, and hand sanitizer for the infant, plus the things she carries for herself. Make carrying everything easier with a mama tote bag. Add some organization with small zippered pouches that let her store the items separately. 

10. Coffee and Tea Accessories

As the new mom cares for her infant, she might need a caffeine boost to keep her awake. Besides buying her tea and coffee, get her new accessories like an electric kettle or an espresso machine. Add a mom travel tumbler so that she can carry her drinks with her.
