Mom’s First Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Do you have a new mom in your life? We’ve got the quintessential Mother’s Day gift guide for new moms


Buying a gift for a brand new mom can be tricky. For the last 9+ months it’s been all about the little baby to be, so now it’s time to turn focus on mom. But, it can be hard to separate mom from newborn. Here is our list of the best Mother’s Day gifts for a new mom that celebrate mom and leave room for a few baby thoughts.

Gorgeous Post-Baby Intimate Wear

While being sexy might not be #1 on the priority list post-baby, luxury intimate apparel brand Mayana Genevière makes it so easy. Mayana Genevière is home to the innovative Aluxtra clasp-free nursing technology, creating beautiful (and, yes, sexy) bras and undergarments that are perfect for the changing needs of a woman’s body post birth. We’re loving every piece from the Empress Collection.

Years’ Worth Of Memories

If the new mom in your life is a bit of a journal-er, this is the perfect gift for them. Journal 10 is a 10 year journal that gives you just a few lines to fill in for each day. Put down just enough to trigger the memories that matter. Imagine a record of the first ten years of motherhood, the first ten years of your child’s life: a priceless gift really. Available at Journal 10 ($50).  

A New Scent

It’s been suggested that women should choose a new scent for their wedding day so that they always associate that day with a specific smell. So why not do the same thing to remember those first few years of motherhood? And if spring isn’t the perfect time to switch up your fragrance game, when is? See By Chloé Eau Fraîche is perfect with its airy fragrance that brings to mind freshly blooming flowers. Available at Sephora ($70-$105).

Chic Diaper Bag That Could Pass As A Purse

So this one is bordering on being for the baby, BUT this the beautiful Duet Diaper Bag from Skip Hop ($130) is so gorgeous no one would even think for a second that it was a diaper bag. The Duet is actually two bags in one—a sleek tote and a removable organizer that can be worn as a cross body. This bag will take you from the playground to date night, from errands to play dates and back again!

Friendly Reminders

With the addition of a baby, mom’s schedule gets even busier. A beautiful place to store notes and reminders is a great way to keep mom on time! We love Hallmark’s Desktop Pin Board in white, perfect for any home office or desktop. Available in store at Hallmark ($25).

The Two Things Every Mom Needs

Coffee and a scapegoat! Because every new mom is going to need a break. This mug is a doozy (14 oz.) and, while the little one might be too young to “go ask your father” it’s never too early to start teaching them, right? Available at Indigo ($9). 

Wonderful Wall Art

Why not celebrate mom with a hand made papercut? This delicately beautiful option from Etsy seller Ant Design Gifts is a wonderful choice. We love the intricate pattern as well as the peekaboo heart that allows the walls colour to shine through. Available online at Etsy ($126).

A Wardrobe Refresh

After baby arrives there is nothing better than doing a bit of shopping to get that wardrobe up-to-date. While fashionable and trendy pieces may seem important, comfort is going to be the name of the game. That’s why these Denim Joggers from Gap are perfect—comfortable and fashion forward the elasticized waist will be your bff while the jogger part will keep you on trend. Available at Gap ($70).
