25 Thoughtful First Mother's Day Gifts Under $100
Celebrate a mom's first Mother's Day with these meaningful gift ideas.
A new mom's first Mother's Day is so sweet and special. This holiday provides the perfect opportunity for her to reflect on her motherhood journey, remembering the exhausting but oh-so-worth-it moments. Celebrate an amazing first-time mom this Mother's Day with either a sentimental gift she'll treasure for years or a handy helper to get her through the infant and toddler stages.
As a mom of two (soon to be three!), I've developed a pretty good idea of what I'd like to receive (hint, hint), and I wouldn't be mad to unwrap any of these gifts. Below, I share some affordable finds that show appreciation and love for the new moms in your life.
For a small but sweet surprise, personalize this gorgeous leather keychain with a meaningful photo. An emotional new mom will love the tiny reminder of her newest little bundle of joy while at work or running errands.
As a mom, time is precious. This lovely sage green electric kettle boils water in minutes for piping hot tea or pour-over coffee, and the base keeps water warm for an hour. Pro Tip: Add boiled water to instant oatmeal for a quick, hearty and healthy breakfast.
Becoming a mom means hot coffee is a thing of the past — unless you have an insulated mug like this one. The pretty floral design and glossy finish make this utilitarian stainless-steel cup feel as nice as her ceramic mugs, only much more practical.
Elevate the traditional breakfast-in-bed Mother's Day surprise by serving a sleepy-eyed new mom an assortment of authentic and elegant French pastries. This set of 12 comes frozen so you can bake the delicacies at home and serve them hot.
Since child safety is likely top of mind for her now, skip a candle in favor of this elegant reed diffuser. She can simply flip the reeds once the scent fades to rejuvenate her and freshen up any room with a light fragrance. I personally like using one in the nursery to cover up, ahem, diaper smells.
Yes, it's dry shampoo. Yes, it's splurgey, but believe me, dry shampoo is probably the most-used beauty product in any mom's cabinet and this brand really knows what they're doing when it comes to hair care – something that postpartum mamas battling hair loss will appreciate.
Your skin does wild things after birth. Spoil a deserving mom with this luxurious face oil that she can ritually massage into her skin for soothing, glowing results. I'm personally obsessed with this stuff. It feels like such a treat to lather up with this silky formula.
Indulge her with a fresh new fragrance for spring and summer with uplifting notes of fig, bergamot, jasmine and coconut. An affordable mini-size bottle is perfect for her to try out or splurge on the just over-budget full-size version for a real treat.
