The first few months of motherhood are a blur. Between healing from delivery, and figuring out how to hold, feed, and take care of a tiny human, it can be overwhelming to say the least. With Mother's Day right around the corner, you're probably racking your brain thinking of things new moms really want for Mother's Day, instead of the tried-and-true (and kind of boring) standard gift ideas. It's a pretty safe assumption that the new mom in your life doesn't want another Hallmark card, or another bouquet of flowers, or a combination of both. No, she probably wants something that shows you acknowledge and appreciate her new role.
As a new(ish) mom myself, I can testify to the impact of a thoughtful, selfless gift tailored perfectly to the needs of a tired mom. Motherhood is an exhausting role to adjust to, and even though her baby is still tiny, a mom's first Mother's Day is one she will always remember.
So instead of opting for a card and flowers (or some other over-used token of appreciation), why not give the new mom in your life something that will bring a sense of normalcy, rest, or luxury back into her life?
