If you’re reading this chances are you haven’t finished your shopping yet and you need some ideas for a first time mom that you know. I have a couple of ideas for the perfect mother’s day gift for new mom’s.
Mother’s day is just around the corner, and it’s bringing a lot of excitement. You look at mother’s day differently once your a mother yourself.
It’s like Christmas for mom’s haha!
New mom’s want to feel valued and special, it’s a time to reflect and feel thankful.
To know what to get a new mom you have to think like a new mom. Chances are new mommy is tired, and running a hamster wheel!
New mom’s minds are on when will I get some decent sleep, getting through the busy day, and pushing self last.
So how do we fix this problem? Keep reading for the perfect gift idea for the new mom in your life.

1. Spa day and a sitter
Since the new mom always put self last, the ideal gift is something that’s strictly for mom. It doesn’t have to be a spa day but anything that has to do with new mom taking time for herself.
Of course mom first thought might be
“When will I have time to go? Who will watch the baby?”
By offering to also babysit while new mom use your gift mom gets to rest, which is one of our key points, take time to do something for self, and get a break from the mom life.
It also shows that you are thoughtful and thought about how new mom could use the break.
Or, you could skip the spa day and leave new mom’s time open. Offer a get out of jail free card so that mom can relax.
Maybe there’s something she’s really been wanting to do, you can provide the opportunity for her to do it.
Baby sitters are expensive and sometimes hard to find, mom will thank you for giving her something she values more than anything, time.
3. Gift card for Target
I don’t think anyone needs a reminder but babies are expensive!
You’ll often find yourself spending a lot of money on baby and pushing yourself back, or spending less money on yourself because of baby.
Either way a gift card to a place like Target can be the perfect gift.
It gives mom flexibility to either spend it on herself, or on baby and still have the cash she would have spent in her pocket. Ca-ching!
4. Cook dinner
Mom’s are busy, busy, busy! Offering to cook dinner leaves one less thing on mom’s ever growing to do list and shows that she is appreciated.

Sometimes things can get a little hectic and you’ll end up with a stressed out and not so happy mama. That’s why I think aromatherapy would be a great gift for any mom, not just a new one.
A deep breath and an oil known for relaxation or happiness can be exactly what mom needs to turn her day around.
Not to mention oils smell ah-maze- ing!!! Lavander oil will also be useful for putting baby to sleep!
There are so many different oils that affects you in different ways, I reccomend the set below, that will start mama off with 10 different oils!
