One thing the new mom who’s celebrating her first Mother’s Day could definitely use: A break, because chances are she’s feeling grateful but also tired and more than a little bit harried. Beyond that, to make sure her special day feels extra special, a gift that shows just how much you appreciate her would go a long way. Below, we rounded up a slew of gift ideas that are sure to delight any new mom, from indulgent cashmere sweaters to comfy shoes to a bath soak that’ll give her some time to herself. While all of the things on this list are available on Amazon, we’ve found a few of them elsewhere, too, for those who like to shop around. (And if you’re shopping for more than one mother, we’ve got tons more gift ideas here.)
