First Mother’s Day Figurines

A sentimental Willow Tree figurine is a wonderful way to preserve the special memories of this special holiday!
You can buy a different figurine to represent each of your children (assuming that you have more later), and your children will love seeing the figurine that represents them.
Each sculpture stands around 8″ tall, and is sturdy enough to be moved around by little hands.
Don’t be surprised if you in turn receive one also – there’s a new daddy figurine as well!
They’re a wonderful present that she will always treasure – and, if she enjoys the figurines – there are many others to choose from for other meaningful holidays.
It’s hard to believe that one day those tiny hands will be grown up!
Use one of these fabulous handprint kits to help you remember how so very small those hands were.
The easy-to-use kit doesn’t require any mixing or baking – and won’t leave baby’s hands and feet all sticky! Simply knead the air-drying clay, flatten it, and press your baby’s hand or foot into the clay to get a perfect impression.
If possible, try to get the prints when the baby is feeding or sleeping so that there’s less wiggling.

First Mother’s Day Gifts from Husband
As a new dad, one of the things you probably discovered this year is that you’re in charge of procuring all the Mother’s Day gifts for your wife. No matter how brilliant your baby is, he or she probably isn’t up to making or picking out gifts this year.
So obviously all the gifts from baby are really from you (and of course, Mom knows that). But if you’d like to go that extra step on this special day, you could also give her a gift especially from you.
You may want to go with a romantic gift that lets your wife know how much you love her.
Or you could go with a gift that honors both your relationship as a couple and as a family, like this beautiful Milestone Dates pillow above that can be personalized with all the important dates in your family.
Personalized Phone Case
For a gift she is sure to use and appreciate every day, give the new mommy you love a customized phone case featuring her favorite photos.
Find trendy designs for iPhone and Samsung Galaxy phones at Zazzle – they have over 200 highly-rated designs that you can personalize with photos and messages.
As she communicates with others throughout the day, she can stay connected to those closest to her heart with a quick look at her phone.
First Mother’s Day Keepsake Gifts
Mom will want to remember her special day forever, and a keepsake gift will always be a reminder of this wonderful day.

First Mother’s Day Flowers
Skip the High-Priced Florists
In just a couple of years, the baby will be old enough to pick some flowers or dandelions and create a beautiful bouquet just for Mommy.
This year, though, it’s up to Dad to provide the flowers. Don’t pay a fortune to get a bouquet delivered from a floral service!
Most bouquets come in forgettable, drab vases. Start a beloved tradition by ordering a personalized vase that in itself will be a present that she will always treasure!
Add her favorite bud (rose, daisy, daffodil) from your garden or your local grocery store and you’ve created a lasting present that will be cherished for years.
Perfect size to fit on her breakfast tray!

First Mother’s Day Gifts for Your Daughter
Most daughters become closer to their own moms once they have their first baby. (Which is great, because as a mom, how often did you think, “Just wait until you have kids” when your daughter was growing up)?
If you’d like to recognize your daughter’s 1st Mother’s Day, consider a gift that reflects that unique bond that’s only shared between the two of you.
The beautiful heart-shaped keepsake above is a sweet keepsake that your daughter will always cherish.
Relaxing First Mother’s Day Gifts
Although I’m sure mommy has loved her first few months of parenthood, chances are it’s been a bit stressful. Along with all the proud, fun, amazing moments of motherhood come the sleepless nights, the worries, and the frantic calls to the doctor.
Why not give the gift of relaxation with a spa gift basket?
Any stressed-out mommy will surely delight in being pampered with a relaxing bath filled with all the delightful goodies from the basket.
Just remember – someone (you!) needs to watch the baby so that Mommy actually has a chance to relax!
Stackable Name or Birthstone Rings
Stackable rings are one of the hottest trends in women’s jewelry this year!
The trendy rings can either by worn by themselves, or the new mom can create her own unique look by mixing and matching them with other rings.
They are the perfect choice for the woman who’s planning more children, as the rings are thin enough to stack multiple rings. So simply order another ring when the family is blessed with another child.

Fun Family Activities for the First Mother’s Day
One of the things you’ll need to discuss with the new mom is how she wants to spend this special holiday.
If you have family that lives nearby, then you’ll probably want to organize a get-together with the rest of the crew.
Some women consider this event a time for pampering and relaxing. If that’s the case, she might enjoy a massage, a trip to the spa, a manicure/pedicure, or a girls-only outing of some sorts.
Other moms would prefer to spend the holiday with their family. To them, it’s not Mother’s Day without the whole family involved!
Here are a few of my favorite suggestions for special family outings:
- Picnic – My whole family has always enjoyed picnics. You can go to a favorite park or to the beach or lake. It’s a great way to spend time together.You can pick up sub sandwiches to go, or pick up a feast at your favorite deli. And don’t think that picnics are only for lunch or dinner – my kids absolutely loved breakfast picnics! It’s a delightful way to enjoy the great outdoors before it gets too hot outside.
- Swimming – If it’s warm enough for the pool, beach or lake, swimming is a fun family activity. Be sure to give Mom extra time for reading while lying in the sun!
- Gardening – Today is a wonderful time to add a few bushes or plants to the garden. Or visit your local botanical gardens – a great place for a picnic!
- Baseball Game – Go check out your favorite team. Be sure to bring along the peanuts and Cracker Jack!
- Zoo – An outing that the whole family will enjoy. And since it’s spring, there might even be baby animals to Oooh and Ahhhh over.
- Hike – Take a scenic walk along a favorite path, or try some place new.
