Top First Mother’s Day Gifts

With our 10 to 12 Mama Cashmere Poncho, she’ll feel amazing and her baby will melt in her arms as they lounge peacefully on a cloud of luxurious, machine-washable cashmere. Our cashmere poncho can be easily slipped over the baby’s head, comes in a keepsake box to preserve all of baby's special milestones, and functions as a soft baby blanket too, making the perfect first Mother's Day gift.
The new momma in your life has just carried another human being inside her body for the past nine months. Not only has she gone through the pain of pregnancy, but she’s experienced weight gain, flux of hormones, stretch marks and little sleep in the process, which can be a huge confidence shaker. What she probably wants is something to help her feel beautiful again. What better first Mother’s Day gift than skincare?
Natural Oils: Beauty experts swear that oils are the best for skin hydration and renewal. Coconut oil and argan oil help to replenish the skin with nutrients and repair damage from sun, dehydration and exhaustion.
Anti-Aging Products: Finally we have been let into a little French skincare secret; start using anti-aging products before you see the signs of aging to preserve your healthy glow! The added benefit of a spa-like routine at home is a cherry on top. Ingredients like peptides, antioxidants and Retinol are some of the stars to look for when scouting the right products. Revision Skincare is one brand that is proven to be known and trusted for its quality, so you can be sure it is worth the investment. The Mom in your life will be thrilled as soon as she experiences the difference of its products. Our suggestion for an extra-special, pampering gift is Revision's One of a Kind gift set. Included in the set is the silky-soft Intellishade Matte tinted moisturizer that will make putting on daily SPF feel like a luxury, and blends into most skin tones with anti-aging benefits.
Face Masks: Face masks are always a great Mother's day present because not only do they replenish the skin, they provide the perfect excuse for your new mom to just take twenty minutes to sit back and relax after a long day.
In the first year or so after giving birth, comfort is a huge priority for new moms when it comes to clothes. She’s not going to want to wear jeans around the house when she’s feeding or holding the baby -- Leggings are THE go-to lounge wear. She also might be trying to shave off the last few pregnancy pounds and get back on track with her workout schedule. Leggings are one of the most practical first mother’s day gifts that you’ll be sure will be put to good use.
If you’re looking for something more meaningful or thoughtful, personalized jewelry is always a good idea. Getting her a custom engraved ring or necklace as a first mother’s day present is great because it’s something that will last, and something that really memorializes this big day. Etsy is a great resource for handmade personalized jewelry.
Tote bags are both practical and cute and can make the best bonus Mother’s Day presents. First time moms will realize that with the new baby, they suddenly have so many things to carry around, be it bottles, handkerchiefs, or diapers. Getting her a light, roomy, machine-washable tote bag with a cute design is a perfect first mother’s day gift.
New moms know that there’s nothing more convenient and comfortable than being able to journal or work while sitting in bed. Imagine being able to write a card or type an email while patting your newborn to sleep next to you! Rest assured, there’s no better Mother’s Day present than a nice, comfy lap desk.
