- Due to the lack of free time, sleep, and requirements of baby proofing, moms with young kids often can't enjoy gifts traditionally associated with Mother's Day like candles and flowers.
- As a husband to a mom, I've learned that gifts that can help a mom navigate busy days with ease and comfort can bring more pleasure than gifts that call for a break in the routine.
- And since young kids tend to be ever present, items that are safe to have around the house make great gifts too because they don't add to what a parent already worries about.
So what to give a mom caring for young kids this Mother's Day? In short, anything that will make her life easier. Anything that provides added comfort, efficiency, or removes a challenge presented by childcare will be a welcome gift. And if you can gift an evening of babysitting and an appointment for a massage, she'll definitely appreciate that too.This list was actually inspired by gifts I've given my wife in the past six years (we have a five- and one- year-old) that were actual hits. While I've used these ideas for a couple of Mother's Days as well as birthdays, holidays, and so on, every one of them was a hit precisely because it made her life as a parent that much easier and more enjoyable - and because all of them are kid-safe, too.
Also, it goes without saying that chocolate is a requisite for all occasions - or no occasion at all.Read on to find the best Mother's Day gifts for moms with young kids: Subscribe to our newsletter.
