The Best First Mother's Day Gift Ideas

So I know some don't believe they should get their wife a gift because they aren't their mom (and vice versa on Father's Day), but for those who do want to get their wife a gift, here are some great ideas for the first time mom!

1) First Mother's Day Onesie & Shirt

This adorable first Mother's Day set can be found on Amazon
Etsy also has a ton of cute onesie and shirt options as well for mom and baby's first mother's day!

2) Picture Frame

You can get this cute frame on Amazon.
Etsy also has a ton of cute frame options. Here are are a couple of my favorites:

You could also treat her to a Mother's Day or Mommy and Me photo session so you can add a photo to the frame, making it extra special.

3) Bath Bombs

You can find this set on Amazon.

What new mom (or any mom for that matter) couldn't use a relaxing bath?

4) Fuzzy Socks or Slippers

Find these cute fuzzy socks on Amazon.

First-time moms often have to get up in the middle night as babies rarely sleep through the night, so having a pair of warm fuzzy socks or slippers helps keep those feet warm during that late night feedings.

Find these cute fuzzy socks on Amazon.
Target also has a great selection of slippers for women!

5) Robe

This would be a good option to pair with #4! Again, first-time moms often have to get up in the middle of the night, so a robe is a great way to stay warm. They are also great for breastfeeding!

Target has a great selection of robes for women!

6) Chocolate & Wine (Or whatever her vice is!)

Give her the gift of her favorite treat, whether that be a box of chocolates, bottle of wine, or something else! Moms often get caught up in caring for everyone but themselves, so this is a great way to remind her to treat herself too.

Plus, it's not recommended to have wine when you are pregnant so this may be her first time drinking in a long time!

7) Dinner

Hire a sitter and take her out to dinner! If she's not ready to leave the baby just yet, get take out or cook her a nice meal (if you cook, make sure you clean up too!). She'll appreciate not having to make food for others and herself for once. 

8)  Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Collection

This is my favorite body wash and lotion, especially the Eucalyptus + Spearmint (stress relief). The scents are so relaxing, perfect for any mom. Taking care of a baby is stressful, so this is a great way to help her relax and a reminder to take some time for herself.

9)  Mug & Coffe (or Tea)

Find this cute mug on Amazon.
Having a baby means lots of sleepless night, so give her the gift of her favorite coffee (or maybe something new!) and a cute mug to help get through that first year! 

Etsy has tons of cute mugs for moms!

For the mom that loves tea, I highly recommend Good Earth and you can get  25% all Good Earth Tea with code: MOON25. Check out their Mother's Day bundles here.

10) Keychain

You can find this cute Mama Bear keychain on Amazon.
Etsy also has a ton of cute options. Here are a couple of my favorites:
