Mother's Day Gift Guide

Make her first Mother's Day special by getting her a gift to commemorate the birth of her child or a pampering present to help her relax and unwind. Check out some of our favorite Mother's Day gift ideas for new moms.

Personalized jewelry

Mother's Day gift - Personalized jewelry

If you’re looking for a personalized piece with one-of-a-kind style, look no further. This jewelry is unique to the wearer because each date is literally set in stone. It's the ideal way to commemorate a new baby's birthdate. The Key To My Heart Plated Calendar Key (Not Just Any Old Day, $80) makes a terrific Mother's Day gift for any new mom.

First year photo frame

Give the new mom a way to commemorate her baby's first year. The Silver Leaf First Year Frame (Pottery Barn Kids, $62) features a mat with 12 openings — one for each month — plus a larger opening for the main photo. Made of wood with a silver-leaf overlay, this frame would make the perfect gift for any new mom. For an additional $7, this gift can be personalized.

A day of pampering

Mother's day gift - Spa day

Every new mom deserves a day of pampering at the spa, but she's unlikely to do it for herself. Give her a SpaFinder gift certificate to encourage her to go get a massage, facial or other beauty treatments. You can purchase gift certificates (SpaFinder, $25 and up) online and they can be used for any variety of treatments at over 7,000 different spas around the world.

Comfy slippers

Mother's Day gift - Personalized slippers

Every new mom will love a new pair of cozy slippers. These classic flap slippers (Personalization Mall, $23) are personalized with any letter of the alphabet in rhinestones. They are super soft and heavily padded with a sturdy, non-slip sole. These slippers are perfect for the new mom or any mom that needs to give her feet a little break

Delivery day bag

Don't forget about the mommy-to-be this Mother's Day. The Mommy/Delivery BFFLBag (Bffl Co, $120) is chock-full of everything she needs for delivery day including their specially designed axillapilla pillow, a collapsible water bottle, perineal ice packs, nursing pads, a wound/incision care pack, toiletries, KIND healthy snack bars and much more.

Trendy diaper bag

Mother's Day gift - Diaper bag

Just because she's a mom now doesn't mean she needs to lose her fashion sense. Give her a gorgeous Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bag. We love their Touring Tote (Nordstrom, $149) with its chic design. This bag doesn't just look good, it's also practical. It features plenty of pockets and compartments, plus a removable changing mat, stroller clips, wipe case and more.

These are all great. My sister's first Mother's Day as a mom is this year and I want to do somethings oecial for her. Thinking a trendy diaper bag might be a good idea. She's been pretty frugal since the baby arrived and hasn't bought a new one.
