6 Perfect Mother’s Day Gifts For First-Time Moms

For any new mom, their first Mother’s Day is a unique and special occasion. Give them a gift that honors that occasion and allows them to celebrate their new role and this exciting chapter of their lives. 


You can’t go wrong with a memorable gift that honors mom’s pregnancy or her first few months with her new bundle of joy. Make her a homemade scrapbook or - if you’re not feeling quite so crafty - check out baby’s first year memory book. This great fill-in-the-blank book offers:

  • 2 pre-baby pages for photos, an ultrasound, and a note for baby-to-be.
  • 3 pages for when baby arrives, including a spot for footprints and a page to place their birth announcement and your hospital bracelets.
  • 2 “your world” pages for photos of the home and special details, including how much things cost when baby was born.
  • 12 pages of month documenting.
  • And more!

Letters to My Baby

Alternatively, buy her something that she can give to her child for future birthdays and special occasions. With Letters to My Baby, she’ll get 12 fold-and-mail letters for baby. Each one comes with a prompt for moms, and they can be postdated and sealed to be gifted later on. Some examples of prompts include:

  • “One really special thing about you is…”
  • “On the day you were born....”
  • And “I laugh when you…”

This is a great way for her to focus in on specific traits or special details that she loves about her bundle of joy.

Meal Delivery Service

Sometimes, the best gift for new moms is a night of no cooking or minimal meal prep. Get her a meal delivery service to take off some of the load while still giving her and her family healthy, delicious options. Some great, budget-friendly choices include:

  • Gobble
  • Blue Apron
  • HelloFresh

Spa Kit

She’ll always appreciate a night of rest and relaxation, especially during the first months of motherhood. Get her a spa kit like the calming waters relaxation set that will allow to relax, unwind, and enjoy some time to herself.

Diaper Bag

Sometimes, mommy duty can feel chaotic and overwhelming, particularly for a first-time mom. Take out some of the chaos and help her embrace her femininity and her sense of style with a chic and useful diaper bag. We recommend something like the City Carryall in Colorblock - it’ll help her carry all her baby necessities without feeling schlumpy.

Her first Mother’s Day is also a great opportunity to give her something classic and timeless that she’ll really love. On that note, you can’t go wrong with a beautiful diamond pendant or a classic pair of white gold hoops. Alternatively, get her a custom fingerprint jewelry or birthstone.
