Mother's Day is always a special occasion, but it's an extra special one for the new moms who're celebrating their first few months being responsible for a baby. And anyone with a new baby knows that caring for one isn't exactly a walk in the park. Between the countless diaper changes, less sleep than they thought was humanly possible, and all the chores that existed even before a child was in the picture, they've got more on their plate than ever before.

And, they get through all of that with a level of love they might not have known existed before. You get it. The new mom in your life definitely deserves the perfect Mother's Day gift. Even if this isn't her first rodeo, she'll appreciate a present that honors her *renewed* mom status.

If they haven't already thrown around a few hints—like mentioning how much she wants a new mommy bag to throw diapers in—then know that every mom could use sometime to inspire a little self-care, like these fuzzy heated slippers or a cozy blanket.

And hey, I get it. You're busy, too! But, there's no need to browse for hours. See below for the 44 best Mother's Day gift ideas for new moms (and feel free to treat yourself, too).
