Little Goat Sun Baby Carrier Cover

This is a great gift for any mom who loves being outdoors. When babywearing (wearing your baby in a carrier or wrap), keeping them out of the sun can become an issue. A majority fabric is not sun/UV protected and heavy blankets or covers get just too hot. Little Goat Sun Baby Carrier Covers is a lightweight, UPF-50 rated cover that snaps onto your baby carrier (or stroller) to give your baby complete sun protection while staying cool. I love mine! This would be an amazing gift for any mom who loves hiking, running or anything outdoors!

Breast Milk Jewelry By Moms Own Milk

If you haven’t heard of breast milk jewelry, this is an amazing way to preserve this very special, yet short time in a mother and baby’s relationship! Basically, you send a small milk sample off to be made into a piece of jewelry. There are many options and designs to choose from (some companies will even make custom design pieces). You can get rings, pendants, bracelets, etc! This would be an extremely thoughtful and personal gift for any new mom (or seasoned mom!). 

You can order your own Breast Milk Jewelry over on Moms Own Milk, here (they ship worldwide!)!

Essential Oil Diffuser Dark Wood

Essential Oils are amazing to have and not to mention can leave your house smelling amazing. Having a quality diffuser is a must. The Zen Breeze is a high-quality diffuser that comes with lots of options. You can turn the lights on and off separate from the diffuser and choose from 14 different LED light colors. It is cool-mist so is not hot to the touch. It can run continuously or on a timer. This would be a great gift idea and would be amazing paired with some high-quality oils.

    My wife and I have 4 children and I always have trouble finding something for mothers day for our children to give her.
    You have some awesome ideas for gifts here that I know she would love, I especially love the cookbook, that really made me laugh and I know my wife would find it hilarious.
    I might even get one for my mother for mothers day.
    Cheers for the ideas and I have bookmarked this page for future reference.

    • Heather Grace says:

      I think your wife and I would get along great… haha The cookbook is a favorite of mine! I think I love it even more that your mom would love it! She sounds like a lot of fun. I am glad you found some possibilities for gifts and thank you for stopping by!

  2. Alice says:

    These gift ideas for first time moms are really cool! One of our best friends will be celebrating her first mother’s day this year, that’s next month, and we’re planning a surprise party for her.

    We were able to organize everything secretly, from the venue to the foods that will be served. We just can’t decide what gifts to give her.

    So thank you for these wonderful gift ideas. I like the ultimate spa basket with chamomile and lavender oils but the mommy make up out the door collection is also nice. Hmmm … what do you think?

    • Heather Grace says:

      How fun! That is so sweet of you to arrange such a special surprised for your friend! I love both the spa basket and the mommy makeup collection. If I had to choose, I might go with the makeup only because I think in the long run it is something I can use longer and would make my life so much easier. I always neglect my makeup and hair during the week since I’m so busy, so having all those products condensed into just a few would be a huge help! I hope you have an amazing celebration with your friend and thank you so much for stopping by!
