28 Gift Ideas That First-Time Moms Will Seriously Appreciate
From the new sleep schedule—or lack thereof, in many cases—to diaper duty, first-time moms have a lot on their plates. Even though every mother will navigate this rewarding but unfamiliar territory differently, we think it's pretty safe to say that they'd all appreciate a thoughtful gesture on their first Mother's Day. To some, the ideal day may look like a lineup of family activities that everyone will enjoy, or it could mean some alone time to unwind. Perhaps she'd even just fancy a nap.
To help you plan ahead this year for all the mamas in your life, seasoned pros and newcomers alike, we decided to come up with a gift guide based on a variety of interests and lifestyles. And if you're a mom yourself, go ahead and treat yourself to the gifts that are calling your name; we can all agree that you deserve it. Ready to start filling up those shopping carts? Scroll through the 28 options below to find the most suitable gifts for mom.
