Top 5 Mother’s Day Gifts for the New Mom

From the second a woman becomes a mother, her life changes in a million ways, with new responsibilities and constraints on her time from the very start. And while we may thank the new moms in our lives for all the wonderful things they do, Mother’s Day provides us a prime opportunity to truly show them how much they mean to us and give back to them in a meaningful way. If you’re still looking for a gift for the new mom in your life, look no further; these perfect presents are sure to wow her this year!

BreathableBaby Deluxe Breathable Mesh Crib Liner: Any new mother knows the fear of waking up to find that their baby has gotten their arm or leg caught between the slats in their crib. The good news? With this BreathableBaby Deluxe Mesh Crib Liner, you can instantly mitigate that issue in a way that’s safe for your little one. This breathable liner is soft enough to be gentle on your baby’s skin if they press themselves against the side of the crib in their sleep, but its unique breathable fabric means that it’s perfectly safe to use as a means of protecting their little limbs. Better yet, since it’s padding-free and made of a breathable polyester mesh that’s 25 more permeable to air than an average padded crib bumper, your baby can easily breathe even if they find themselves with their face against it.

GG Supreme diaper bag: New moms know that leaving the house pre- and post-baby are entirely different animals. While she used to head out with little more than a wallet and lipstick on hand, after having a baby, she needs a bag that can carry everything for a day out with her little one, from diapers to outfit changes to baby’s favorite books. Fortunately, this adorably, yet undeniably luxe GG Supreme diaper bag has room for all the essentials and even comes with its own changing pad. And unlike many other diaper bags, which come in tired pink or blue and with less-than-fashionable patterns, this one is chic enough to go straight from the playground to a night on the town.

Shiseido Future Solution LX Treasured Travel Set: Being a new mom often leaves women with precious little time for self-care, meaning that finding time for a swipe of mascara feels akin to taking a day at the spa. The good news? Even the busiest new moms will have time to pamper themselves with this travel kit from Shiseido, which comes with a cleansing foam, balancing softener, SPF, and regenerating cream. The good news for exhausted new moms is that these products are loaded with a combination of Skingenecell 1P and Enmei extract, dubbed SkingenecellEnmei, which has been shown to reduce visible signs of aging and perk up even the most tired-looking skin. Even better, this kit’s petite size means the new mom in your life can simply toss it in her bag and go without toting a ton of bulky bottles.

GracePersonalized Actual Kid’s Drawing Necklace: There are few things more adorable than getting a piece of art from your child. Fortunately, the mom in your life doesn’t have to carry a portfolio of her little one’s masterpieces to enjoy them day in and day out. This Mother’s Day, give your favorite mom this adorable necklace, which captures their child’s hand-drawn art in sterling silver, 18 karat gold filling, or rose gold filling. Whether your kid captures a family portrait or their art is slightly more abstract, any mom would be proud to wear this stunning piece around their neck.

A weekend away: If there’s one thing new moms rarely get, it’s time to themselves. Give the mom in your life the rest and relaxation she deserves this Mother’s Day by treating her to a weekend away on a trip to New York. Get her passes to MoMA, where she can check out current exhibits from artists like Stephen Shore, Adrian Piper, and Agnes Gund, after which she can take her time to enjoy all the artistic architecture nearby, like the adjacent luxury tower, 53W53, in which MoMA will also occupy gallery space. Treat her to dinner reservations at a great restaurant, like Per Se or Daniel, book her a spa treatment the Guerlain Spa at the Plaza, and round her evening out with tickets for her and a friend to a show at Webster Hall. Treat her to a stay at one of the city’s best hotels, booking a suite at The Standard if she likes a quirky vibe, or a room at The Plaza if a little luxury is right up her alley. She’ll return not only rejuvenated, but undeniably grateful for the experience.

  1. I love the idea for a necklace made from a kid’s drawing. Since my grandchildren are pretty talented in their crayon depictions, that would really be a fun “Grammie” gift, too!

    • Carmen Edelson

      Yes, exactly! It’s so unique and sentimental.

  2. Beth

    These are all great gift ideas! I think the mesh is probably a lifesaver, so that would be my favorite. But, the diaper bag looks so great! When my kids were little, it was impossible to find a diaper bag that didn’t look like a diaper bag. This one is really stylish!

    • Carmen Edelson

      I know – finally a stylish diaper bag!

  3. This is my daughter in law’s first Mother’s Day! I’m giving her 2 babysitting sessions and flowers!

    • Carmen Edelson

      Both of those are really thoughtful gifts!

  4. I’m getting my Mum the crib liner, she will love it!

    • Carmen Edelson

      So glad to hear that, Alan!

  5. Olivia

    Yes, “me time” is sooooo important!

    • Carmen Edelson

      Absolutely, Olivia! So necessary.

  6. The getaway is the only thing that sounds appealing to me on this list hahaha the first two wouldn’t even be for me. They’re for my daughter. I’ll be spending Mother’s Day alone on a beach somewhere. I’m quite excited for it lol

    • Carmen Edelson

      That sounds like bliss!! Enjoy the beach 🙂

  7. These are all great gift ideas, especially the weekend away with a spa treatment, tickets to the museum and a luxury hotel!

    • Carmen Edelson

      I know – I want all three! 😉

  8. I have a couple of friends that are new moms and I envision all of these would be helpful. What a great list!

    • Carmen Edelson
