BEST GIFTS FOR NEW MOMS
When I became a mom, things changed. Wide eyes of excitement, beaming smiles, and squeals of delight would erupt when I walked into a room. Adorers would make a beeline for me, arms open wide, fawning forward to embrace...my precious baby. I had become celebrity-adjacent, playing the role of lovable best friend, while my sweet boy basked in the spotlight. First time moms are often overlooked as everyone showers the newborn with attention and gifts. Yes, yes, the beautiful baby is the greatest gift of all – and I wouldn’t change it for the world. But the woman keeping that baby alive (and fed at every hour of the day and night) deserves a special treat this Mother’s Day. That’s why I’ve gathered six thoughtful gift ideas to pamper the new mom in your life.
A LITTLE BOX OF CALM
When sleep is a vague memory, this specially curated selection of pampering essentials becomes the ultimate gift of relaxation.

Sometimes putting on pants, making sure her shoes match, packing up the baby, and heading to Starbucks is just too much first thing in the morning. Let her be her own barista. Get mom a cappuccino machine so she can take a gulp of something hot and frothy (also fully caffeinated), as she closes her eyes for just a minute, and pretends she’s in her favorite bistro.SHOP NOW
