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.

We asked new moms on staff what they'd love to receive and relied on our own experience when choosing the best Mother's Day gifts for new moms. Below, we share some affordable finds all under $100 that show appreciation and love for the new moms in your life.

Mila's Keeper

On-the-go moms will love Mila's Keeper breast milk cooler, which brings luxury and ease to an otherwise inconvenient task for traveling moms. The tumbler can hold up to 12 oz of breast milk, and the cooler can be used to store milk bags, a pump bottle or Mila's Keeper glass storage bottle for up to 20 hours of cold milk wherever you go. The best part — it can double as a reusable water bottle once your baby's all grown up.

Copper Pearl

Mom deserves a comforting hug every day, and these robes from Copper Pearl deliver just that. Made from soft polyester and rayon fabrics with lightweight three-quarter sleeves and an adjustable waistline, this plush robe is every mom's dream. There are even coordinating mommy and me swaddle blankets, knotted hats, pajamas and so much more in over 30 colors!

$14.99 $11.99

A unique take on initial necklaces, this gold-plated coin pendant design will elevate any outfit, even sweats and a tee. Plus, a paperclip layering necklace is also included to give Mom an on-trend look.


Sweatshirts come with the territory of mom life, so why not gift her a cozy crewneck that lets everyone know how cool she really is? Choose from six bases with fun multicolored lettering to elevate mom's everyday look and confirm her initiation into the 'Cool Moms Club.'


As a mom, time is precious. This lovely cornflower blue 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.

$89 $62.79

Let her get the sleep she needs and protect postpartum hair from damage by gifting her a silk pillowcase. This luxurious silk sham is soft against skin and helps reduce creases, tugs and split ends. In turn? She'll always wake up on the right side of the bed.


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.


Nursing-friendly lounge- and sleepwear are essential for new moms. Gift her this lovely set of warm-weather-ready modal PJs that she'll feel put together in. There's no shame in the all-day pajama game when you're taking care of a newborn!

$69.95 (Set of 12)
Williams Sonoma

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.

$21.40 (Set of 15)

Make even a five-minute shower feel like a mini spa escape with this set of 15 fresh eucalyptus shower steamers. Infused with natural eucalyptus, mint and menthol, this is the ultimate at-home spa experience for a new mom in need of some stress relief.


These waterproof Birkenstocks are must-have shoes for new and veteran moms alike. She can wear them around the house, to the pool and the park and simply wipe them clean when they need a bit of shining up.


Trust me, new moms do not have time to care for high-maintenance plants, but we do love having greenery around. Help a mom out by gifting her a faux plant that looks like the real deal (but won't die).

$69.99 $62.99

Make it easier for a new mom to clear out her camera roll with a wireless printer. She can add these to a baby book (the photo paper has a peel-off sticky back), hang them on the fridge or frame them.


Lifting, holding and nursing a baby leaves a new mom's neck and shoulders feeling tense and tired. This weighted neck wrap can be heated or cooled for instant relief and relaxation.

$12.99 (Set of 4)

Claw clips are moms' go-to hair accessories for feeling cute and put-together even with days-old hair. Not to mention the practicality of keeping hair out of her face!

From $60

Cheers, Mama! Treat her to a well-deserved glass of her favorite varietal by sending her a gift card for a couple of bottles of wine.


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 like using one in the nursery to cover up, ahem, diaper smells.

From $39.95

This classic, durable tote is wonderful for family outings, work commuting or really anything else Mom has on the agenda. I recommend personalizing it with her monogram or something a bit cheekier like "COOL MOM".

Crown Affair

Yes, it's dry shampoo. Yes, it's splurgy, 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.

From $82

If she misses the gym or needs a moment to re-center, this lightweight yoga mat provides the perfect spot for stretching tight muscles, fitting in a quick flow or as a supportive base for strength exercises. (Pair it with an at-home fitness class subscription for the ultimate gift!)

From $25

Indulge her with a fresh new fragrance for spring and summer with uplifting notes of fig, bergamot, jasmine and coconut. Included in the set is a full-size version of the Sun Fruit spray as well as a smaller, travel-friendly size for her purse.
