As my daughter nears her days to have her first child (my first grandchild), I think back to how excited she was for her baby shower. Now, soon we’ll have a 2nd baby shower for my side of the family. However, all this celebration has been for him. What about her? What about her trials she’s been through and the time left to come. I mean, darn the terrible twos, what about the terrible years leading up to that?
With that said, be courteous to all the new mom’s on the block and show them they are loved with one of these nine hot gift ideas just for her!
An Amazing Pre-Made Sugar Scrub
There are tons of articles that exist on how to make a natural sugar scrub. Let’s be real though! New moms barely have time to put their hair back in a bun to wash their faces less known make a sugar scrub! Here is a simple and affordable method around that. Treat her to a pre-made sugar scrub such as this Sassy Lemon Essential Oil Sugar Scrub.
A Gift Card to Her Favorite Coffee House
Often times we may tell mom to get out of the house for an hour or so. But where on Earth should she go or do? While on maternity leave from work, it’s not like she’s still a balla! How about treating her to a gift card to her favorite coffee house such as Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts! Talk about a life saver on those long nights woke!
A Beauty Day Out of the House
Getting out of the house, again, is great. But where should she go or do? If dad gives her a day to herself, it’s time to get pampered up! A great beauty day out of the house is just what she needs. Groupon has great treats you can afford for her such as the Beauty mani’s, pedicures, massages, or full spa day packages.
Fun, Soothing Milk Bath
Even a 20-minute escape to the tub can be the tension release your new mom needs. Why not help her enjoy every minute of it and be taken away with a fun, soothing milk bath. This Hot Cocoa Milk Bath, for instance, is made with natural coconut milk and has a warm scent of steamy hot chocolate and marshmallows!
