Some Much Needed Quiet Time!
Sometimes the best gift is the simplest: give mom a much needed break by hiring a sitter for the day or offering to watch baby for her. Being a new mom is some seriously hard work and as much as she loves baby, mom needs to have a little time for herself, too. After all: happy moms mean happy babies!

If mom has spent her nights walking back and forth in the nursery trying to get baby to sleep, show her tootsies some love by getting her a pampered pedicure at her favorite salon. And you can even give other tired, achy parts of her body a rest too when combining a pedicure with a reflexology massage on her feet, too!
Now that mom has a little one to carry around, a pair of wireless, Bluetooth headphones makes a great gift for active moms on the go. Whether she wears them while out on a run or even while she’s nursing, untangle her listening habits by cutting the cord! Pair these headphones with a subscription to an audiobook service like Audible.com for very special Mothers Day gift indeed!
Comfy Pajama Set
If your new mom and little one are still only a few months old, it can mean long nights with baby. Treat her right by gifting her a super soft comfy pajama set, something that’s great for lounging around the house.

Now that baby’s here, mom might not have the time to devote to hair and makeup that she once had. There’s no reason a new mom can’t feel pretty and a chic headband like this one from Hoopla Hoopla allows her to quickly throw this on with little muss or fuss in the mornings while still looking gorgeous.

Mom's Personal Tablet
A new mom might not have time to sit down and enjoy a couple of hours just surfing the web at her desktop or even laptop computer. Perfect for moms on the go, a tablet computer lets her take her books, web, videos and music wherever she goes! And with their increasingly slim design, most tablets can fit right into mom’s diaper bag or purse, barely taking up any additional space!
