3. A Fierce Diaper Bag
Any new mom is going to find themselves a little disorganized at times, especially when it comes to outing with their new baby. They at times will find themselves in a panic, rummaging through toys, pacifiers, open snack containers, bottles, lotions and more while they are on the go. Our idea for Mother’s Day is to make it up to them in a gift that will make them still look stylish even while doing so! Enter the fierce diaper bag: One that has all the same conveniences of a diaper bag but hits a home run in the fashionable mom department! We chose Vera Bradley Make A Change Baby Bag for two reasons: 1.The many different stylish patterns and designs (yes, aside from florals, a bag in chic black is included!) and 2. The bags have a sleek fold-out changing pad feature…awesomely convenient!
We also love the price – signature diaper bags for under SRP $100 – we likey!
Both of these books are perfect for new moms! They offer truthful and comical insight into pregnancy and a new mommy’s first year with her new baby by laugh enthusiast Jenny McCarthy. We have heard wonderful reviews about how these books are guaranteed laughs while at the same time are truly a good read. Belly Laughs is still a good book for new moms who aren’t pregnant anymore because it will be enjoyable for a new mom to remember all those funny pregnancy moments that she finally got over with and doesn’t have to go through again- until of course she wants to! And Baby Laughs is a good choice for insight on all the wonderful and hilarious things to come for new moms. You can find both books at for under $11 each at BarnesAndNoble.com.
MommyJewelry.com offers wonderful jewelry pieces that can be customized with names, dates, images and monograms onto gold, sterling silver jewelry and more.

You can offer a ring, a necklace or even begin a charm bracelet as Mommy Jewelry offers charms. She will be happy to show off her something classy, stylish and still sentimental. Order online, prices begin around $20 and up.
New mom’s know that one of the pitfalls of post preggers is hair horror – it is thin, breaking and at times, it is even bald patching.

We all know that new moms are highly sleep deprived, and this can wreak havoc on their skin, especially their eyes and face. As we lose sleep, we begin to form circles under our eyes, facial skin dulls out and we look sunken, which is not a good look for anyone! With so much to deal with and no time for themselves, a new mom would certainly love and appreciate a product that will take care of their eyes and skin for them. Enter the Forever Youth Liberator Face + Eye Serum Set™ by Yves Saint Laurent Beaute. It will revitalize her skin for a more radiant look and youthful look and rid her eyes of those dark circles, while making you the best gift giver ever! You can purchase for SRP $180 for the set.
