New moms are used to marking milestones. From the first giggle to the first step, first-time moms are constantly celebrating their babies' achievements. If you know a new mom, make sure she doesn't forget another important inaugural event: her first Mother's Day.

In this selection of first Mother's Day gifts ideas, you'll find a perfect pairing of practical and sentimental products. Some—like the “survival kit” and quirky coffee cups—assist new moms as they navigate through their sleep-deprived schedules. Others—like the thumbprint pendant and family portrait—make the holiday as personal as possible. And some—including the treasure boxes and time capsules—make it easier for moms to immortalize their babies' most memorable moments.

In addition to the new mom in your life, make sure you also celebrate your own! Make your mom's day with a homemade creation or other creative gifts for Mother's Day.

These thoughtful first Mother's Day gift ideas are perfect for new moms.
