Do you have any one in your life that spends more time looking at cute little baby booties than they do looking for items for themselves? New mothers and expecting mothers are a category of mothers that deserve some attention on Mother's Day. Even if they aren't technically a mother yet, they are about to embark on a lifelong commitment of love and care.
One of my rules for these special mothers is that you are giving a gift to the MOTHER, not the child. The child's birthday is another day, and they can be spoiled then. For Mother's Day it is definitely acceptable to give a multi-functional gift that both the mother and child will love, but it has to be for the mom. As cute as baby shoes are, you won't catch Mom going out to dinner in baby shoes! If you're looking to treat the expecting mother or new mother in your life here are some great ideas!
