Mother's Day Gift Guide: 6 Treats for the First-Time Mom

Happy first Mother's Day! Spoil a new mom with a luxe treat she wouldn't think of buying for herself.


She’s a first-time mom dealing with the day-to-day on little sleep and a lot of love. Likes: that clean baby smell, long showers (remember those?) and coffee dates with friends. Dislikes: dark circles, judgy mom snark and day care wait lists. Since becoming a mother, the plight of moms and babies around the world is even closer to her heart. She remembers the days when cute boots were adult-size and spa treatments were part of a regular regime. She’s sentimental, Instagram-ing countless pics of her pride and joy, so on her first Mother’s Day treat her to something a little extra. Something she wouldn’t think of buying right now because all her time and energy is focused on one very important person.
