They say it's the thought that counts when it comes to giving gifts, but let's be honest: It helps if the person you're giving a gift to actually wants said gift. This is particularly true for new moms on Mother's Day — because even if she's spending all her time focusing on a certain (tiny) someone else right now, there are still things she needs for herself (and she's probably too tired to ask). So what some acceptable gifts for new moms?
Flowers are lovely, sure, and brunch is a classic, but flowers aren't going to make her feel any less exhausted or overwhelmed, and brunch with a baby can end up making her feel more exhausted and overwhelmed, honestly. And while dropping by for a visit might sound like a nice thing to do, having people show up to her (probably messy) house to hold her baby with their (probably germy) hands might be more stressful for a new mom than anything else.
Sometimes, the best present for a new mom isn't something you can wrap in a box. New moms need help a lot more than they need birthstone jewelry (not that a little bling is a bad thing). There are so many ways to show your love and support this Mother's Day, and some don't even cost a dime!
It can be tough to know exactly what a new mom needs. Maybe what she wants more than anything in the world is a nap. Maybe she's dying to just go sit in a Starbucks by herself with her own thoughts for once. Maybe she's a working mom who just wants some one-on-one time with her baby where she doesn't have to worry about anything else. That's why sometimes the best gift is just the offer of a few hours to do whatever she wants (while you pick up the slack).
