Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for New Moms

April 22, 2009

I’ve Spotted: Kelcey from Mama Bird Diaries! Kelcey is a Manhattan-mama and former journalist. This dedicated mom and her team of contributors at Mama Bird Diaries share stories and tips for moms everywhere.

So after yesterday’s sneak peak into a New Mom’s life, you’re wondering what to get her for Mother’s Day. My niece, Erin, mentions below what she would LOVE to receive this Mother’s Day.

Q: You’ve given many mothers’ day gifts over the years. Now that you are a mom what would you like to get as your first Mother’s Day gift?

A: A day off! Seriously though, I would love a spa day! I would also love to get some fragrant spring flowers to brighten my apartment since I spend so much time inside at home with the baby now.

You can always give your New Mom a gift certificate to their favorite spa, but if you want to do something extra special at home try creating a “Day of Relaxation” at home.

Serenity Room – transform your bathroom into Mom’s perfect spa treatment. Fill up the bath tub with warm water and sprinkle Mom’s favorite flower petals for a relaxing bath. Light candles, scatter them around the room, and leave Mom’s favorite book by the tub. Be sure to have her fluffy towels, slippers and robe ready when she’s done.

To add to her special day, be sure to have a beautiful floral arrangement waiting for her. As Erin mentioned, flowers will brighten her days as she’s at home with the baby. Flower arrangements such as, Pink and White Roses or the Sentimental Surprise from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM incorporate soft colors and are perfect for any New Mom.

Tomorrow I will share a fun DIY project!
