As someone who is currently pregnant with my first child, I can only imagine how very special the first Mother’s Day is with your little one. I’ve already told my husband he better be planning something for me and our growing baby boy this Mother’s Day! To celebrate this new chapter, I’ve put together a wonderful list of first Mother’s Day gifts! Whether the new mom in your life is a beauty babe, travel addict, fashionista or loves her rest and relaxation, you will most definitely find something wonderful for her in this Mother’s Day gift guide for first-time moms.
First Mother’s Day Gifts
Urban Decay’s Beached Eyeshadow Palette
Pregnancy can really take a toll on your body and skin, so new moms are definitely ready to get their groove back. With summer coming soon, nothing says new mom fabulous like a sexy new eyeshadow palette from Urban Decay. I just started using the new Urban Decay Beached Eyeshadow Palette and I’m obsessed!!
Loaded with eight brand-new shades, from warm coppers to deep pops of turquoise, Urban Decay’s Beached Eyeshadow Palette invokes the one-of-a-kind, magical feeling of a hot summer night. Covered in palm trees inspired by the landscape of warm SoCal beaches, the limited-edition Beached Eyeshadow Palette warrants a permanent vacation. These shades scream summer and the long-lasting formulas won’t budge, even when you’re spending the season’s hottest days under the sun. Channel your inner golden goddess and keep the summer vibes going all year long. Made from UD’s mind-blowing formula that gives each shade its velvety texture, rich color and blendability, each shade holds tightly onto pigment and stays put. I also love that Urban Decay is 100% cruelty-free.

With so many life changes, the desire to be and stay organized in everyday life can be a big sense of comfort!

Finally, all of your makeup can be easily accessible and safely organized in a bag that is easy to clean. If you are traveling with baby, who knows what can happen when, so it is so helpful that the Kusshi Makeup Bag and Organizers are fully washable and so easy to maintain. Plus, I have to rave about the high-quality zippers that slide open and closed so easily and won’t get stuck. Be sure to take a look at all of Kusshi’s wonderfully innovative products for more gift inspiration!
MISS de GASPÉ Dry Masks
I was recently introduced to a new line of dry masks from MISS de GASPÉ that are truly ground-breaking! Curious about a dry mask? Dry means no water to act as a filler (aka infusing your skin with a 96% concentration of natural ingredients and a mind-blowing 83% concentration of active ingredients…seriously deep-penetration!) You can wear this dry masks while doing other things, unlike wet masks. So new moms can get totally awesome skin in no time while multitasking, which is so important!
Plus you can choose between three different types of MISS de GASPÉ Dry Masks depending on what your skin needs at that time. The Purify + Purge mask is for anti-pollution and detoxifying, Defy + Drench is anti-aging and hydrating, and Brighten + Beam is for brightening and revitalizing. The price point is $32, but you can get between 3 and 5 uses out of each mask. Shop these dry masks for your favorite new mom below:

Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) in-shower styler
It’s no secret I’m a big fan of Living Proof products, but their Perfect hair Day (PhD) in-shower styler is truly ideal for new moms! This innovative styler is applied in the shower and lightly rinsed, leaving behind only what you need to create beautiful air-dried styles. It features Living Proof’s Thickening Molecule (PBAE) and lightweight conditioners which deliver enhanced natural texture, body, softness and shine.
Let’s be real, new moms don’t have the luxury of taking hours out of their day to get a blowout at the salon. So Living Proof’s Perfect hair Day (PhD) in-shower styler is a total game changer. Ideally, it works best on straight to slightly wavy hair. I like to put my hair in braids or a bun after I get out of the shower and let it air dry for beautiful, natural-looking waves.
It is silicone-free and sulfate-free and safe for color and chemically treated hair. Here’s a bunch of my favorite Living Proof products that make great first Mother’s Day gifts!
