5 Thoughtful Mother’s Day Gifts for New Moms

Mother’s Day is around the corner and we’ve compiled a gift guide to get you started. These 5 gift ideas offer something for every new mom who is celebrating for the first time.

1. A Mug for her Morning Cup of Joe

With a new baby in the house, “rise and shine” takes on a whole new meaning. Help her start each day with a mug that’s both fab and functional! Take this gift to the next level and pair it with a bag of local coffee beans or even homemade tea bags.

2. A Mommy and Me Photo Shoot

Schedule a special photo shoot to commemorate her first Mother’s Day and pick the perfect outfits for the occasion. We love the idea of a sophisticated tulle skirt for mom to complement a tutu on a baby girl!

Get the Look! An all-in-one outfit makes it easy to get baby ready and a layette with an attached tutu means that the shirt won’t slide up in pictures.

For Mom, choose a midi skirt for a more sophisticated and totally on-trend look.

3. A Happy Mommy Box

Help her celebrate motherhood with a box full of motivational goodies and some pretty accessories, too.

4. A Day of Pampering

Send her to the spa or to the salon for some R&R. Even a gift card to her favorite store and a few hours to shop alone will be much appreciated.

5. A Personalized Plant

Give her flowers that will last long after Mother’s Day. A potted plant in a DIY planter will remind her of her first-ever Mother’s Day as a mom each time she waters it.

6. A Purse-Sized Photo Book

Has the new mama in your life documented every moment of baby’s first year on Instagram? If you’re really sneaky, or happen to know her password, you can surprise her with a Chatbook! These affordable little books are printed versions of your Instagram feed. With a six dollar price tag, you might even decide to print a series and order copies for grandma, too.

7. A Trendy Tote

The “Everything Tote” is big enough to carry all of the mom essentials. She can skip the diaper bag and carry this fun tote for an afternoon outing.

Fan Friday: First Day of Spring

It’s the first day of Spring! Welcome the season by spending some time in the sunshine with your little one. Bees are buzzing and flowers are blooming as this season of growth begins. Whether planting or playing, it’s the perfect time of year for enjoying the sights, sounds, and scents in the garden. LeAnna Azzolini‘s photo of sweet little Layne in one of our Bunch O’Bloomers flower diaper covers captures the season perfectly. Go ahead, you can pick these flowers!
