A mom's first Mother's Day is a special event, and it should be celebrated as such. If you need ideas for how to pamper her on Mother's Day, look no further than this article. The first Mother's Day was celebrated on May 9, 1914, and nowadays, Mother's Day is celebrated across the world with different customs and traditions. In the United States, mothers are typically celebrated with cards, flowers, special meals, and gifts. Because no two mothers are identical, it's important that you find a gift for this mother's unique tastes and desires.
For her first Mother's Day, the celebration should begin early, as soon as she wakes up. Of course, if she prefers time to herself in the morning as a part of her waking up ritual, it's best to wait until that "alone time" is over!
Flowers are a mainstay of Mother's Days, and for good reason: as a general rule, moms love flowers. And because this is her first Mother's Day, a bouquet of flowers will be novel and much appreciated. Start the day by presenting her with a bouquet of her favorite flowers arranged in an elegant vase.
Have the bouquet arranged and ready when she wakes up. If you're making her breakfast, present the flowers with the pancakes to put a smile on her face. You should remove the bouquet from any packaging and arrange it nicely in a vase. The point of the day is to pamper her, not to give her chores such as cutting flower stems. If you're not very creative with flower decorating, you can purchase a ready-made arrangement from a variety of local or online flower companies.
Being a mother is stressful, especially when it's her first child. Even if she's never had a massage, your first-time mother will surely appreciate one from a deluxe spa. Whether it's for one hour or it's a full-service massage, ensure that she gets the full benefit by watching her child so that she can relax knowing that her child is in safe hands.
If you can afford it, you can add on to the spa experience with a facial, a manicure, a pedicure, or any other services the spa offers. Let her have the opportunity to be pampered by professionals and feel like a queen for a day. Even if she doesn't go for the massage on Mother's Day, presenting her with the gift certificate that day will elate her.
Some mothers appreciate gifts that are more practical than pretty. If that's the case with the first-time mother in your life, look no further than the electronics aisle. Look to devices that she'll use on a regular basis. For example, if she's a shutterbug but is taking pictures with a four megapixel point-and-shoot, find a professional-style camera that she can use to photograph the moments in her child's developing life. (If she doesn't have a camera at all but would use one for casually photographing, a point-and-shoot will work perfectly.)
Tablet PCs, eReaders, GPS devices, MP3 players or iPods: she'll appreciate any electronic that she's likely to use on a regular basis. But if she's not particularly tech savvy, offer to supply her with any tech support that she may need with the device.
