5 Thoughtful Gifts For A New Mom (This Mother’s Day)

Mother’s Day is almost here but never fear, there’s still time for you to grab the perfect gift! This year, make sure you up your game when picking out something special for mom. Mothers work hard all year round. I’ve even read that being a mom is like having 2 1/2 full time jobs! Not many jobs require a 14+ hour working day, and most moms do this 7 days a week with little reprieve. Today, I’ve partnered with Bedsure and BBPark to share 5 thoughtful Mothers Day gifts for a new mom. (But don’t worry, these would also make great gifts for experienced moms as well!)

Thoughtful Mother’s Day Gifts For A New Mom

Being a new mom is tough. Unfortunately, babies don’t come with instruction manuals and no two children are alike. So help a new mom out this Mother’s Day with one of these thoughtful gifts!

Master Bedroom - Bedsure 100% Bamboo Sheet Set

1) New Bedding

Sleep can be hard to come by when there’s a new child in the home. Help mom get a little better rest with Bedsure’s 100% Bamboo Sheets Set. Cool and breathable, these natural thermoregulating bamboo sheets wick away moisture to keep you cool and dry throughout the night. (Which means they are extra great at helping people with night sweats.)

She’ll love how the fitted sheet features a 16″ deep pocket and gripping all-around elastic band that can hold the sheet in place and help deliver a perfect restful sleep. This silky texture bamboo sheet set will add a luxurious feel to your home.

Bedsure Cooling Blanket

If mom’s a hot sleeper or dealing with hot flashes/night sweats from the hormonal changes of having a baby but still wants to cover up, make sure to also grab her this Cooling Blanket. This special summer blanket helps fight the upcoming humid, hot weather (or night sweats). It’s a cooling blanket that works to keep you cool and comfortable without perspiration, which means you will fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.

It’s also a great blanket for snuggling up to enjoy a good book with!

2) Mom’s Night Out/Off

I love being a mom. However, when my kiddos were young, a trip to the grocery store alone felt like a vacation! Having a few hours to myself to take a bubble bath, read, or just veg out in front of the television would have been an amazing gift. Maybe she just needs a nap! So give the new mom in your life a break by offering to take the kiddos to your place or hang out with them at theirs if mom prefers. Just allowing her the freedom of an hour or two off will be refreshing for her!

3) 100% Mulberry Silk Pillowcase + Sleep Mask

When giving mom that night off, pair it with a sleek Mulberry Silk Pillowcase and Sleep Mask so she can get some rest! The Bedsure 100% silk pillowcase set helps retain moisture for your delicate facial skin to ensure a smooth and silky feel; allowing mom to wake up looking rested and beautiful!

5) Meals – Freezer or Fresh!

Cheesy Mexican Taco Casserole Recipe w/Large Shell Pasta

Cooking becomes a daily chore that, for many mothers, becomes hard. After caring for kids and cleaning all day, the hardest part becomes trying to decide what to make for supper. Give mom a week off by making her 5-7 freezer meals that she can pull out on a hard day or when she’s just feeling overwhelmed or tired. Freezer meals are perfect because she can save them for when needed most but a fresh meal is also very much appreciated. Check out all our recipes for some yummy options!
