If this is her first Mother's Day, she's probably short on sleep and hasn't had time to paint her nails since that pre-baby mani/pedi. Mom's first Mother's Day is all about helping her unwind, relax, rejuvenate, and soak up every moment with that precious babe. Our gifts run the gamut from the practical to the indulgent. An iced coffee maker is going to be her right-hand companion as the weather warms up. To keep her hydrated (a constant battle when chasing after a spirited, newly crawling 10-month-old) a motivational water bottle will be both useful and inspiring. Help her unwind at the end of a long day with a 3-in-1 shampoo, bath, and shower gel—it will save her time allowing for an extra minute or two for soaking. There's no doubt she'll be thanking you for these thoughtful and useful gifts that any new mom will appreciate.
