Mothers Day Gifts for First Time Moms

When I think back to when I was a first time mom and celebrating my very first Mothers Day, I have fond memories of what we did. We went on our first family vacation to Niagara Falls. My son was about 11 months old and pretty much slept in the stroller the entire time, but we still had a really nice time. Since that trip, I’ve always wanted to go back there, but this time, with both kids. I am sure my daughter would really like to see the falls. It can be stressful trying to figure out what to get first time moms for Mothers Day. I’ve put together this guide of gifts that I am pretty sure moms would love to receive from their kids.

Mother’s Day Gifts for First Time Moms

When I was pregnant with my son, I really wanted to personalized “mom necklace”. I got one shortly after my daughter was born and I wore that thing every day (until it broke and I lost it at a store). This particular necklace is simple and comes with different options that you can really personalize it. Me personally, I like the 18 ” ball chain. They also ship fast! Perfect Mothers Day gift!

If personalized mom jewelry is not her thing, that’s OK! Not everyone likes that kind of thing. Maybe this “Mom-isms” coloring book and markers are something that special mom would enjoy! Sure they say to sleep when the baby is sleeping, but why not color?!? If you pick up the coloring book, make sure you get the markers. They are the best!

OK so this next one…I know they say you should never get an appliance as a gift, but maybe they are like me. I love getting stuff like that and I am sure they would be excited to get this particular appliance! The Instant Pot will dramatically change their life. Even on their busiest mom days, they can have dinner on the table in such a short amount of time!

Already have the Instant Pot, no sweat! Maybe that special mom would like some fun things to do outside. I don’t know where you live, but here in Michigan we are just now starting to see a glimpse of spring! Maybe she’d like a new bike or a bike trailer to carry the baby! Those two things are something I always wished I had when my kids were younger. Fresh air is good for everyone!! Be sure to take a look at this bike trailer…it’s on sale right now!

I don’t know about you, but when I think about first time moms, I think back to being so exhausted and all those nights that I was up late, rocking my baby while he slept or ate or just wanted to be held. Usually I watched all of the infomercials. I can’t tell you how many times I thought I needed something (that I really didn’t need). What I really wish I had was a Kindle so I could read in dark while the baby did whatever it was the baby needed to do. If you do decide to pick up a Kindle, be sure to take a look at the Kindle Unlimited Membership Plans. Trust me. You will make her day! Be sure to check out my book blog, A Real Page Turner, for some book suggestions!

This next gift idea is sure to be a hit with first time moms. When you become a mom, things like taking showers become difficult to fit in. You’re either too tired and need to sleep when the baby is sleeping or the baby wants you to hold him all the time so showers typically happen when you have someone else home with you. When I wanted to shower, I would put my son in his bouncy seat and take a record breaking shower. Thankfully he loved that seat so much! Getting mom this next gift and telling her that you and the baby will occupy yourselves while she enjoys her down time, would be a dream come true! Throw in a candle, a bottle of wine and the Kindle above and she will be one happy mom!

No matter what you get mom for Mothers Day, she will like it. So long as you put some thought into it, she will be happy. At least I know I would be. Be sure to go all out and celebrate those first time moms this Mothers Day! Be sure to let me know what you got them! Happy Mothers Day!
