I believe ALL moms deserve something special and deserve to feel special, especially on Mother’s Day.

A new mom has just gone through the terrain of pregnancy, went through labor and delivery, and is now in the postpartum stage of motherhood.
Because of all of this, a new mom deserves the best! Usually, gifts for new moms focus on her self-care, leisure, things to pamper her, and things that will better her life.

As a recent new mom, I know first-hand what a new mom would absolutely love!
14 Mother’s Day Gift for New Mom Ideas
It’s important to remember that special gifts do NOT mean expensive gifts. A special gift is something that is given from the heart, with much thought and care. It can the tiniest homemade gift, or something special that she has been wanting. A special gift is thoughtful and filled with love!
1. Mom Mug
One of the first awesome Mother’s Day gifts for new moms would be a cool mom mug! They make really awesome and fun mom mugs. Some of them say “New Mom” or “Mom Fuel” or “Mom Established” and the year that she became a mommy.
2. Mom T-shirt
There’s nothing better as a new mom than to sport a mom t-shirt! It’s you’re officially a part of the motherhood tribe! A great Mother’s Day Gift for a new mom is a t-shirt that says something cool about being a mom.
Another great Mother’s Day gift for a new mom is some comfortable pajamas. New moms experience a lot of changes postpartum, so comfy pajamas and slippers can go a long way! If she is breastfeeding, you can get her nursing pajamas or something that is comfortable to wear but also accessible for her to be able to nurse.
A pair of comfortable slippers is also a great addition to the gift!
The fourth idea for Mother’s Day gifts for a new mom is a nice, comfortable robe.
A house robe, whether it be nice and fluffy or thin and soft, can be used every day! She can throw it over pajamas or just wear it around the house while she’s getting stuff done.
5. Mini Purse
Moms have SO MANY things to carry when she goes out. Switching from a purse to a diaper bag can be a huge step for a new mom. Having a mini purse helps moms know that she has all of her important items without having to carry a big purse AND a diaper bag.
I decided to switch my regular over the shoulder purse for a mini bookbag purse, that way I can carry the diaper bag on my arm, my baby in the other arm, and push the stroller with my free hands. It’s been a great mom life hack!
6. Comfortable pillow
The next Mother’s Day gift for new mom idea is a brand new, comfortable pillow. Starting to see the “comfy” trend??
New moms have a lot of aches and pains that she’s never experienced before, so getting a good night’s sleep is imperative! New moms tend to not get as much sleep so when she does sleep, she needs it to be completely restful and comfortable.
This is my favorite pillow! I got it 2 weeks after I had my daughter and it changed my sleep life.
7. Comfortable blanket
A perfect gift pair to a comfortable pillow is a comfortable blanket. A nice, soft, plush blanket is a great addition to the pillow gift!
Another great Mother’s Day gift for a new mom is a massage! Who doesn’t love a relaxing massage?? New moms are constantly busy and thinking of their baby instead of themselves so giving a gift of relaxation and comfort is a great option!
This also gets her out of the house for some much-needed self care so it’s a win/win!
Staying with the same “relaxation” theme, a manicure and pedicure are another brilliant gifts for new moms! New moms don’t want to spend money on themselves, don’t focus on themselves, and definitely, don’t care about their nails every second of the day. Between doing dishes, laundry, changing diapers, and cooking- nice nails may be the last thing on her to-do list. A manicure and pedicure can be a nice gift to help her get out of the house and relax a bit.
10. DIY Home Spa
You don’t have to give a costly massage or manicure/pedicure- instead, you can give her the gift of a DIY home spa bath. A new mom would love a relaxing bath with candles and a comforting aroma.
You can get her a bath bomb and some candles or a full DIY spa kit! The options are limitless.
11. Coffee maker
The eleventh awesome Mother’s day gift for a new mom idea is a new coffee maker. Most families don’t spend too much money on household appliances when they have a new baby because finances are stretch thin. A new coffee maker can be the saving grace for a new mom!
12. Mom Planner
Being a new mom is difficult. You have to plan your to-do list and activities all while tracking your baby’s naps and feedings. It can be A LOT! But having a mom planner can help any new mom organize, track, and plan their day and their baby’s day!
