A woman's first Mother's Day is a pretty big deal. She's likely still adjusting to the title, and having an entire day dedicated to celebrating her transition into motherhood is important. Since a newborn isn't old enough to choose a gift for mom themselves, significant others or family members may have to do the dirty work of figuring out Mother's Day gifts for them to give. Luckily, anyone who is in the market for a few Mother's Day 2017 gift ideas from baby won't have to search too hard, because there is no shortage of unique gift ideas out there for the new mom in your life that are a little bit more unique than breakfast in bed. (Although she probably wouldn't complain if you threw in breakfast in bed as a second gift.)
Whether the mom in your life had her baby in the last week or last year, feeling appreciated is one of the best gifts you can give her. And, luckily, most moms aren't that hard to please when it comes to personalized gifts featuring their baby.
Some of these ideas are simple enough that you can make them yourself. The others are relatively affordable and can all be personalized to fit her and her baby — it will almost be like your little one pick it out themselves.
