When selecting a birthday gift for a young mother, choose something she will truly appreciate. Most moms consider their children their greatest gift, so a keepsake item that reflects her children is always a good option. Other gifts for young moms include those that award her some free time, or indulgent services or gifts that remind her that while she is a wonderful mom, she is still a unique individual apart from motherhood.
Give the young mom a keepsake item that will forever remind her of her early years of motherhood. A blanket embroidered with her child's name or a scrapbook of photos and mementos of early motherhood make lovely birthday gifts. Other gifts she can treasure and display: a locket with photos of her kids inside, or charm bracelet with charms representing her children.
Give the young mother a gift card that will allow her to treat herself. Pamper her with a gift card to a spa where she can get a massage, facial, manicure or haircut. A gift card to a fashion retailer also makes a nice birthday gift as she can use it purchase a trendy top or pretty accessory. These birthday gifts are a nice way to award mom with a special indulgence.
Take her to a movie, out to dinner, to a concert, or even to see a band in a local coffee bar. Young moms deserve a chance to spend a night reminiscent of her pre-maternity days. Whether a date night with her husband, or a fun night with the girls, a night on the town may be just what the birthday girl needs to feel her youthful age and recharge her energy.
One thing every young mom could use is some time off from the duties of motherhood. It is hard, however, to find someone trustworthy enough and willing to take on the job. Babysitters can be costly as well. Offer her the gift of your time with her kids while she takes a little break to get some rest, read, head to the gym or soak up some sun. Some mothers would even appreciate just enough time to head to the grocery store and shop without kids in tow. However she spends it, the gift of your babysitting time will be well received and put to good use.
Think about hobbies she enjoyed prior to becoming a mom. Chances are she hasn't had much time to enjoy this pastime. Rekindle her love of photography with a new digital camera. Give the avid reader the latest best-selling novel, or give a new cake mold to the mom who loves baking. A gift that reflects her personality is a nice reminder that she is special and unique.
