Unique Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for New Moms

Unique Mother's Day Gifts Continued...

Mommy Time

While a new mother’s top priority will be to her baby’s health and well being, we cannot forget that moms need to take care of themselves too! If a full day at the Spa seems like a far off bucket-list item, create short simple breaks for her! Make her an appointment to her favorite local nail salon, send her to the mall (sans baby), or enlist your in-laws for a quick lunch date.

Try a New Hobby

Before she was pregnant, there were probably several fun, active hobbies that had to be given up! Treat her with a gift certificate to learn Yoga, take guitar lessons or that wine tasting event she missed. Or just think of an interesting place to visit and get this new mom out of the house! This Mother’s Day gift will be a well deserved and needed break from the everyday tasks of child rearing!

Customized Coffee Mug

Is your new mama an avid coffee drinker? Now that she is cleared to have that cup of Joe more often, get her a mug with baby’s picture on it! Target, Snapfish and Walgreens all offer adorable and affordable personalized photo ideas!

Kid’s Handprint and Footprint Art

Homemade or store bought, all moms love to have cherished little keepsakes of their children’s hand and footprints! Here are over 10 great ideas for Handprint Art or check out these canvases from!


Instant Photo Printer

New moms are bound to take thousands of photos from the first glimpse of the baby bump and beyond! Treat her with an instant photo printer like this one from Polaroid that allows you to print directly from your mobile phone or tablet. Get it now at!

Personalized Jewelry

You know the new mama best. Get her a new birthstone necklace, ring or bracelet, whichever piece of jewelry she needs or prefers the most. There are so many options to choose from, so if you run into trouble making the choice, try having her pick it out herself! Pull up several websites to order online (just make sure to plan well in advanced before Mother’s Day arrives to ensure shipping) or schedule a day to visit her favorite jewelry store!
