Mother's Day is about all moms, obviously. But there's something special about Mother's Day for first-time moms. They're finally a member of the club, and they get a day all about them! But, as us old-timers know, motherhood isn't all sunshine and roses. Especially during those first few difficult months. If you've got a first-timer in your life, it's a good idea to make this Mother's Day all about her and her needs and comforts. She's going to get plenty of baby gifts when the little one arrives. So handle the self-care and convenience for her with one of these Mother's Day gifts for first-time moms.
These super soft and super comfy pajamas from Eberjey are great for lounging around the house while the new baby lays about like a potato blob. Bonus points for buttons that can unleash the milk machines.
I've tried them all, and this dry shampoo from Living Proof is one of the best. I can get four days out of it, easily.
Seriously, my hands looked like gnarled tree branches after my babies came home. Self-care is important, so think of her hands and make them pretty again with this kit from Burt's Bees.
A Kindle Paperwhite is the perfect gift for the first-time mom with a lot of extra time on her hands. Fill it with trashy romance novels and murder mysteries.
Now, the key here is to not tell her this is for stretchmarks. Because that's upsetting and rude. BUT, this multi-use skincare oil from Bio-Oil is good for all kinds of stuff. She'll eventually see that suggested use on the box.
The Nespresso VertuoPlus makes single-serving cups of coffee (with crema!) or espresso. She'll be holed up in her room with the baby, so put coffee at the touch of her fingertips.

It's kind of amazing the amount of baggage moms carry under their eyes. This eye gel with retinol can help her take a load off her face.
The two best things you can gift a first-time mom: a cleaning service, and a robot vacuum like the Roomba. Let her focus on the baby and not the disaster happening on the floors.
This Shiatsu back and neck massager has heat AND a deep tissue setting. Come to think of it, we all need one of these.
First-time moms will love this sweet little heart necklace with their new little one's initial on it.
This luxurious spa robe goes great over her fancy jammies, or just over her naked body right out of the shower before the baby hops on the boob again. This is also a must-have for postpartum moms!
There's enough room for her phone, laptop, coffee, remote, and even a snack or two on this cute bed tray.
She can these little Tile locators on her keys, phone, whatever. Once she realizes how foggy her brain is those first few months, she'll be so grateful.
The Ember mug is a temperature-controlled coffee mug that will keep her coffee or tea at the perfect temp, no matter how long it takes her to drink it.
The Hidrate Spark 2.0 Smart Water Bottle will glow when it's time to hydrate. One less thing for her to remember!
