First Mother’s Day Necklaces
Repeat after me: jewelry is always appropriate for any occasion!
Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, or a little celebration because you didn’t burn the muffins this morning, jewelry is a wonderful gift!
For someone’s first Mother’s Day as a mom, I would go with a trendy name charm necklace like the one pictured on the right. They’re all the rage among stylish moms these days
My top choice for fast-shipping new mom necklaces is Eve’s Addiction. They have an amazing selection of necklaces that are sure to delight any new mom.
Their selection includes both sterling silver and gold pendants in a variety of prices. You can add birthstones to many of the pendants, or order without if you prefer a simpler look.
You can also order additional charms for many of the pendants – just in case there’s a second baby in the new mom’s future!
First Mother’s Day Figurines
Start a Family Tradition or Give Just One
A sentimental figurine is a wonderful way to preserve the special memories of this special holiday!
Willow Tree has created a moving line of sculptures from willow tree branches that depict the emotions of so many special aspects of family life. They’re a wonderful expression of the love and affection between family members.
They offer figurines to represent many of life’s milestone events, such as pregnancy, marriage, and parenting.
You can buy a different figurine to represent each of your children (assuming that you have more later), and your children will love seeing the figurine that represents them.
Each sculpture stands around 8″ tall, and is sturdy enough to be moved around by little hands.
Don’t be surprised if you in turn receive one also – there’s a new daddy figurine as well!
They’re a wonderful present that she will always treasure – and, if she enjoys the figurines – there are many others to choose from for other meaningful holidays!
It’s hard to believe that one day those tiny hands will be grown up!
Use one of these fabulous handprint kits to help you remember how so very small those hands were!
The picture frame comes in your choice of 3 colors – white, natural, or espresso.
The easy-to-use kit doesn’t require any mixing or baking – and won’t leave baby’s hands and feet all sticky! Simply knead the air-drying clay, flatten it, and press your baby’s hand or foot into the clay to get a perfect impression.
If possible, try to get the prints when the baby is feeding or sleeping so that there’s less wiggling.
What to Do With All Those Adorable Baby Pictures – Part 1
Noticing a trend here? Photo gifts are super-popular! On a new mom’s 1st Mother’s Day, you can’t go wrong with a gift that spotlights her baby’s darling face.
You probably have loads of baby pictures on your laptop, so why not take a few minutes and create a gorgeous gift that features some of your favorites?
Choose a gift that highlights just one photo, such as the lucite photo block on the right, or a collage that shows off multiple pictures.
First Mother’s Day Mugs
After long hours and sleepless nights, it takes a lot of caffeine to keep the new Mom going!
Greet Mommy on her first Mother’s Day with a cup of her favorite beverage served in a special mug, like the one on the left.
Cheerful mug can be personalized with a sweet message, and features a charming set of baby footprints (or you can order a mug with 2 sets of footprints in case you’re lucky enough to have twins!)
The perfect little addition to her breakfast in bed tray!
Funny 1st Mother’s Day Gifts
Let’s face it – you really need a sense of humor to get through pregnancy and that first year of parenthood! Make the new mom smile with a humorous gift.
The wine-loving new mom will be the envy of all the other moms when she shows up at the pool or park with her own funny sippy cup (pictured on the right).
It includes a lid and a straw so that she doesn’t spill any of her precious drink while chasing after the baby!
I Love You to the Moon and Back Gifts
The sweet “I love you to the moon and back” saying is the perfect expression of a mother’s love for her child, or a husband’s love for his wife.
This darling necklace (which is available in sterling silver, gold or rose gold) is a wonderful first Mother’s Day gift from either Dad or the baby (or both)!
Personalize the back of the heart charm with the baby’s name or other loving message.
First Mother’s Day Gifts from Husband
As a new dad, one of the things you probably discovered this year is that you’re in charge of procuring all the Mother’s Day gifts for your wife. No matter how brilliant your baby is, he or she probably isn’t up to making or picking out gifts this year.
So obviously all the gifts from baby are really from you (and of course, Mom knows that). But if you’d like to go that extra step on this special day, you could also give her a gift especially from you.
You may want to go with a romantic gift that lets your wife know how much you love her.
Or you could go with a gift that honors both your relationship as a couple and as a family, like this beautiful Milestone Dates pillow on the right that can be personalized with all the important dates in your family.

First Mother’s Day Flowers
Skip the High-Priced Florists
In just a couple of years, the baby will be old enough to pick some flowers or dandelions and create a beautiful bouquet just for Mommy.
This year, though, it’s up to Dad to provide the flowers. Don’t pay a fortune to get a bouquet delivered from a floral service!
Most bouquets come in forgettable, drab vases. Start a beloved tradition by ordering a personalized vase that in itself will be a present that she will always treasure!
She’ll love this striking bud vase pictured on the right.
Add her favorite bud (rose, daisy, daffodil) from your garden or your local grocery store and you’ve created lasting present that will be cherished for years.
Perfect size to fit on her breakfast tray!
Extra bonus: Each year you can just add a new bud to the vase – a tradition everyone in the family will grow to love!
First Mother’s Day Gifts for Your Daughter
Most daughters become closer to their own moms once they have their first baby. (Which is great, because as a mom, how often did you think, “Just wait until you have kids” when your daughter was growing up)?
If you’d like to recognize your daughter’s 1st Mother’s Day, consider a gift that reflects that unique bond that’s only shared between the two of you.
The beautiful heart-shaped keepsake on the right is a sweet keepsake that your daughter will always cherish.
First Mother’s Day Gift Baskets
First Mother’s Day Gift Baskets
Although I’m sure mommy has loved her first few months of parenthood, chances are it’s been a bit stressful. Along with all the proud, fun, amazing moments of motherhood come the sleepless nights, the worries, and the frantic calls to the doctor.
Why not give the gift of relaxation with a spa gift basket?
Spa baskets are always a delight to receive – you feel like you’ve just gotten a basket of treasures on your front door. Any stressed-out parent will surely delight in being pampered with a relaxing bath filled with all the delightful goodies from the basket.
Just remember – someone (you!) needs to watch the baby so that Mommy actually has a chance to relax!
What’s a holiday without chocolate? I find that chocolate makes everyday life better and it makes this celebration fabulous!
Surprise your wife with unique M&Ms mix created just for her – and for an unforgettable twist, add your baby’s photo to the M&Ms!
It’s a unique present that’s sure to delight any woman! The M&M site is incredibly easy to use. They have a fun selection of gifts, including candy dispensers, bowls, and teddy bear gifts.
You’ll then choose 3 or 4 of your favorite colors of M&Ms. You can upload a favorite picture to some of the candies, then add clip art or custom message to the rest. It’s incredibly easy; it takes about 3 or 4 minutes if you have your picture selected.
Stackable Name or Birthstone Rings
Stackable Name or Birthstone Rings
Stackable rings are one of the hottest trends in women’s jewelry this year!
The trendy rings can either by worn by themselves, or the new mom can create her own unique look by mixing and matching them with other rings.
They are the perfect choice for the woman who’s planning more children, as the rings are thin enough to stack multiple rings. So simply order another ring when the family is blessed with another child.
World's Best Mom Gifts
These gifts will let her know that you think she’s amazing! And trust me, you can never tell anyone that you love how wonderful they are too many times.
The initial year of motherhood is a year of ups and downs, highs and lows. Any parent wants to do a fabulous job raising their children, and most first-time parents have doubts along the way as to how they’re doing. (And trust me, the doubts only get bigger as the kids get older!)
The sweet keepsake on the right is a thoughtful keepsake that will remind her all year around of this wonderful occasion – and of your respect for and confidence in her mothering abilities!
Personalize the clear Lucite statue with any name. You also have 3 lines of text to add your own loving message.

Fun Family Activities for the First Mother's Day
One of the things you’ll need to discuss with the new mom is how she wants to spend this special holiday.
If you have family that lives nearby, then you’ll probably want to organize a get-together with the rest of the crew.
Some women consider this event a time for pampering and relaxing. If that’s the case, she might enjoy a massage, a trip to the spa, a manicure/pedicure, or a girls-only outing of some sorts.
Other moms would prefer to spend the holiday with their family. To them, it’s not Mother’s Day without the whole family involved!
Here are a few of my favorite suggestions for special family outings:
- Picnic – My whole family has always enjoyed picnics. You can go to a favorite park or to the beach or lake. It’s a great way to spend time together.
You can pick up sub sandwiches to go, or pick up a feast at your favorite deli. And don’t think that picnics are only for lunch or dinner – my kids absolutely loved breakfast picnics! It’s a delightful way to enjoy the great outdoors before it gets too hot outside.
- Swimming – If it’s warm enough for the pool, beach or lake, swimming is a fun family activity. Be sure to give Mom extra time for reading while lying in the sun!
- Gardening – Today is a wonderful time to add a few bushes or plants to the garden. Or visit your local botanical gardens – a great place for a picnic!
- Baseball Game – Go check out your favorite team. Be sure to bring along the peanuts and Cracker Jack!
- Zoo – An outing that the whole family will enjoy. And since it’s spring, there might even be baby animals to Oooh and Ahhhh over.
- Hike – Take a scenic walk along a favorite path, or try some place new.
