Moms are fierce. They are women who are a nonstop stream of love and deserve accolade after accolade. Especially if a baby just entered their worlds. New moms are welcomed to a wonderful but exhausting world of dirty diapers, baby giggles, and 3 a.m. wake up calls. With Mother's Day approaching on May 12, you'll want to make sure your BFF or sister or cousin who became a new mom gets hooked up with the best of new mom Mother's Day 2019 gifts.
When it comes to gift-giving, flowers are thoughtful. But for a new mom, you have to think about what they're not getting now that they have a new job title. Sleep? Those six to eight hours are compromised. Maybe a new pillow, one specifically like a cloud, would be better than a dozen tulips.
The very first Mother's Day should be a memorable one. A time to celebrate and pretty much high key ~pamper~ the new mom who is devoted to all things baby needs, but may not take a lot of time for herself. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Memory Foam Pillow
When a new mom can get some rest, you better believe it should be on a pillow that cradles her so she can get the most of the minutes she has to sleep.
Verve Coffee Roasters Subscription
For one bag a month for three months straight, you'll pay a one time price of $48 to have a bag of coffee delivered to the new mom each month for three months.

While that new mom you know is running around with her hands full of actual poo, she can have some assistance with turning the lights on and off. So nice to have a third set of hands, or, you know, artificial intelligence.
