The Best Gifts for Moms

Parenting is a selfless job, and mothers deserve to be celebrated each and every day. And while you don’t need a special day to show appreciation, Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity (in whatever way you want to spend Mother’s Day). When shopping for gifts for new moms, keep their rest and recovery in mind. Think of things that might help her feel like herself during the first foggy months of postpartum. For the seasoned moms, mothers-in-law and grandmothers in your life, self-care essentials and sentimental gifts are always a good idea.

With all of this in mind, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite thoughtful gifts for every kind of mother.
