Gift Guide: Her First Mother’s Day

Just like baby’s first steps, that first mother’s day is a milestone. It is a day mom will probably remember for years to come. And babies, er…Dads? It’s right around the corner. Make her feel special. Let her know you’re grateful for all that she does, i.e. getting up with the baby in the middle of the night while you cover your head with a pillow. Extravagant gifts aren’t necessary. When it comes to moms, it really is the thought that counts. We’ve compiled a list of ideas to get you started. Of course, she’ll probably appreciate sleeping in and some breakfast in bed, too.
