Becoming a mother is like taking up residence in a new country — there are different customs to learn, unfamiliar skills to master, a whole new landscape to navigate. It’s an incredible adventure with dizzyingly high stakes, because you aren’t on your own — there is a small human being that is completely depends on you to figure it all out.

It’s a glorious and overwhelming transition that deserves love, support and celebration. This Mother’s Day, treat the newest mother in your life to something special (after you bring over dinner and offer to hold the baby, that is).

Capture the moment with a portrait she’ll treasure forever.

A necklace with baby’s name is a sure way to a mama’s heart.

Pamper her with luxury bath goods, including an oh-so-welcome invigorating scrub.

A small pouch to stash her stuff is perfect for busy days on the go.

Because those little toes get her every time.

Celebrate your new family with a set of custom paper dolls.

An oversized scarf in a pretty shade of blue brightens up a basic outfit (and can double as a nursing cover in a pinch).

Treat her to decadent dark chocolate truffles.

Pile on the love with a stunning stacking ring.

A modern interpretation of the classic family tree celebrates new generations.

Stash pacifiers in style with a smartly striped tote.

Give her a piece of art that will touch her heart.

A flattering maxi dress in a forgiving silhouette is something she can wear all summer.

Start a new tradition by investing in a vase you can fill with flowers each Mother’s Day.

Get that favorite photo off of the phone and into a frame she can display on her desk.

A silk scarf with a scattering of stars features a poem with this swoon-worthy line: “This same moon that looked down on my parents and your parents and all the parents that there ever were, looks down at us now still sharing it’s light.”

A sturdy canvas tote in vibrant blue can do double duty as a chic diaper bag.

Because words of encouragement are always welcome.
