First Mother’s Day Gifts Under $10

Lip Balm

You can’t go wrong with lip balm, especially not this one! This lip balm is one of the more moisturizing ones out there.

“Obsessed with this lip balm. This is the second one I’m buying as I actually finished the first one! It’s soft and long lasting. I went from using an EOS balm 300 times a day to using this one 1-3 times a day. Love it.” – Christine, Amazon Review

Facial Sponge

This facial sponge gives dull skin a healthy glow. If the mother in your life needs a little pampering, this is an easy way to make that happen.

Dry Skin Body Brush

Some like this dry skin body brush because it stimulates circulation and the lymphatic system, and some like it because it gets rid of cellulite. But most like it because it makes the skin smooth and healthy!

Belly Butter

For mamas that are celebrating their first mother’s day with a baby belly, Burt’s Bees Mama Bee Belly Butter is the bees knees (have I gone too far? 😉 ).

TIP:  Make a nightly ritual of moisturizing mama’s stretching skin – it feels amazing, helps with itchy skin, but also is some nice baby/belly bonding time.

Luxury Bath Salts

I never met a mama that refused a relaxing soak in the tub. Take your bath time game up a notch with these detoxifying bath salts. Each bag contains sea salt, lavender and rosemary essential oils, kelp powder, green tea powder, vitamin E and aloe. Yes, please!

OPI Nail Lacquer

Does the mother in your life enjoy a fresh manicure? OPI makes some of the best nail polishes that can be found at most nail salons. Pick her favorite color, or choose the one below (it’s called bubble bath). You can’t go wrong here!

First Mother’s Day Gifts Under $20

Batiste Dry Shampoo

Every mother needs Batiste Dry Shampoo. Needs. If you’re like me and try to go as many days as possible between hair washings, because motherhood, dry shampoo will give you at least another day, if not two. If you’re hoping to give off the impression that you’ve got it all together, dry shampoo must be a part of your arsenal. 😉

Maternity Robe

Is the mother in your life a bathrobe sort of gal? If so, don’t let pregnancy cramp her style. This maternity robe is super comfy and just what she needs. It can also be used all throughout postpartum, and is especially helpful for breastfeeding.

Pregnant Belly Oil

Motherlove, one of my favorite mama-baby companies, makes a delicious belly oil for pregnant ladies. It prevents stretch marks! It also smells like lavender. It’s a win-win.

Butterfly Bush

This butterfly bush is the gift that keeps on giving. It’s a flowering plant that also attracts butterflies and hummingbirds! But even better,  every year on mother’s day you’ll get to see it, notice how it has grown, and remember that first mother’s day. How sweet is that?

First Mother’s Day Gifts Under $30

Ursa Major Essential Face Wipes

Is your lady always on the go? Of course she is… she’s a mother. Your busy lady will love these individually wrapped bamboo face wipes. They’re made with 30 naturally-derived ingredients, so she can feel good about using them on her face. Throw a couple of these in the diaper bag and she’s good to go!

Spa Slippers

These spa slippers would be a perfect addition to a mother’s day gift basket with the chocolate below, the bath salts above, and the lip balm at the top, don’t you think?

Lots of Chocolate

Chocolate is amazing. A package of six chocolate bars of various varieties is out of this world. At the end of the day, especially an exhausting day of being a mother, a bite of chocolate hits the spot just so.

DOSS Wireless Portable Speaker

For me, music is such a big part of my life. A portable speaker like this one, makes it easy for quality sound to be where it needs to be – wherever I am.

Side Note: I bet this would come in handy with playing white noise for a sleeping baby whenever and wherever you needed it.

Wooden Folding Book Light

This folding book light is perfect for a new mom. Sure, you could use it to read, however, it’s also the perfect light for middle of the night diaper changes and feedings. Check it out!

First Mother’s Day Gifts Under $40

Nursing Cover

This stylish nursing cover by Covered Goods looks like a fashionable accessory, but 1) is also a nursing cover that 2) can be used as a carseat cover but also 3) is a shopping cart cover. New moms love these!

Overnight Bag

In my humble opinion, I think it would be really amazing to receive this overnight bag stuffed with everything else on this list. Don’t you think? But how cute is this bag though?!

Birthstone Necklace

For moms that have one to three kiddos (7 birthstones may be a bit much… just sayin’), this birthstone necklace would be one of the sweetest first mother’s day gifts she’ll receive! It’s a keepsake!
