Whether she’s in the midst of sleepless nights with a newborn or she’s just starting to feel those first kicks, her first Mother’s Day as a mom is a milestone that she will remember and cherish for a lifetime. While she might say that you should only focus on buying for the baby (or baby-to-be), in this instance, you should politely ignore her request and treat her to a thoughtful first Mother’s Day gift.

If you’re stuck on what gift to give, try paying attention to comments she’s made in passing. Maybe she hasn’t found time to sit down and read since the baby arrived and could benefit from an audiobook subscription? Or perhaps she’s been looking for a way to mark this special time with a personalized photo book but hasn’t had the time to start?

Whether you go the traditional route and opt for flowers, jewelry, and photo gifts, or the practical route with tech gadgets and subscription services, your main focus should be on making her feel special and pampered. Despite all that’s going on right now, this first Mother’s Day is a time to treasure and celebrate.
