Mother’s Day Gift Ideas For New Moms

Mother’s Day is a special day for us to celebrate the amazing moms and mother figures in our lives. For new moms, it’s the first time they have the opportunity to be on the other side of the holiday, which makes it a more special occasion.

If you have a new mom in your life, consider picking up a piece of keepsake jewelry to commemorate her first Mother’s Day. Here are a few ideas for inspiration!


Birthstones are a great way to help mom always remember her first Mother’s Day. Jewelry with birthstones range in everything from rings, to bracelets, to earrings, and beyond. There’s something to make every mom happy.


A locket is a fantastic way to capture the memory of mom’s first Mother’s Day.

You can opt for a locket with a single picture and add a special inscription on the other side, or you could place photos of both sides of the locket. If youchoose the right length necklace, mom will be able to layer this piece into her everyday wardrobe accessories.


A once-in-a-lifetime gift for mom is a pendant with your child’s thumbprint.

A thumbprint pendant is a beautiful way to keep the memory of a first Mother’s Day close to her heart. Infants like to keep their fists closed, so this can be a bit of a challenge. Toeprints may be an easier alternative in this case.


You don’t need to reinvent the wheel when it comes to a special gift for mom. Keep your present to the newly minted momma simple with personalized jewelry.

Use your child’s initials or name and turn it into a pendant on a necklace or engrave it onto a ring. Consider engraving a special message to the new mom or add your child’s birthday.


A charm bracelet is the gift that grows with you.

As you create more memories with your family, more charms can be added to mom’s bracelet. You can add initials, zodiac symbols, or any other meaningful charms to make this piece of Mother’s Day jewelry extra special. Pandora charm bracelets are especially popular, and you can always find new charms to add as her family grows.


Nothing is a more obvious symbol of love than a heart.

Heart jewelry can be combined with birthstones, used as pendants, for charms or engravings on necklaces, or can be the main piece of a locket. In short, you can double up on the meaning of your gift with a heart-shaped piece of jewelry.


Mom is going to be watching over the new little one for many years to come.Treat her to a wristwatch so she doesn’t miss a moment of the special times to come.

A Citizen watch is a timeless, well-crafted wristwatch that will last her a lifetime. Consider personalizing the back of the watch with an engraving to make it extra special.
