Because life with a baby ain't easy.
But here's the thing: Her world orbits around that precious newborn baby, and as generous as a spa gift card may be, chances are she's not quite ready to leave her child in the hands of someone else for the day. Look for unique gifts for new moms that help make her new job title easier. And if you really want to get something trendy for a new mom, there's tons of cool choices that aren't for the baby—a relaxing diffuser, a comforting weighted blanket, skin-saving serums, comfy pajama short sets, or even a pretty personalized necklace (a great choice from a husband—hint, hint!).
Bottom line: When it comes to useful and unique gift ideas for a new mom's (or a mom-to-be's!) first Mother's Day, stick to gadgets and little luxuries she can indulge in after birth right from the comfort of her own home.
