The Best Gifts for Her First Mother’s Day
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 on-the-go 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) an infuser water bottle in a pretty pattern is both useful and utter eye candy. 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 products specifically designed to help her look more awake than her 2 hours of sleep would allow, so check out Rise + Glow. And, to help her capture all those memories and firsts without the interruption of taking out her phone, she’ll love the mini camera that also allows for easy sharing to social media or simply sending to family.
