Great news, you still have exactly 7 days before it is too late to get the new mom in your life a gift she will not only appreciate, but also really use.
As a new first time mom myself, I may know some things about what it's like to be a Millennial mom in 2018.
Here is a list of 5 things that the new Mama in your life will find useful, appreciate and will actually use:
(Bonus: 7 days is plenty of time to purchase these and get them ready to gift her on Mother's Day 2018, which is on May 13th.)
1. Amazon Prime Membership:
Having a newborn in the house makes once easy tasks seem like a whole event for new moms. It takes a whole lot more effort these days to hop in the shower, throw on some sweats, hop in the car and run to Target or the grocery store.
All those steps mentioned above have now been increased exponentially.
That being said, an Amazon Prime membership can feel like a godsend for a new mom. The new Mama in your life can not only order baby essentials and items she didn't even know she needed (like a million more bibs for a drooling, teething baby), but she can also order things for herself like toilitries, household items and even clothing and shoes.
Do her a favor and get her and Amazon Prime membership for Mother's Day.

2. Mommy Night Out
Depending how old your new mom's baby is, she may finally be ready to leave her baby for a few hours and enjoy some down time.
If she is breastfeeding Mama, make sure you buy her some breastmilk alcohol test strips to test her breastmilk after a night out so she doesn't feel anxious or guilty about having a few drinks while she's out.
If you really want to go the extra mile, offer to babysit yourself and tell her to go have a night out with her friends or arrange a babysitter ahead of time for her.
3. Food Delivery Gift Card
As I mentioned earlier, "simple" tasks require a tremendous amount of effort these days for new Mama's, not to mention trying to find the energy with the lack of sleep she constantly fights.
Whether she's a stay-at-home Mama or a working Mama, some days, the new Mama in your life may not be able to find the energy to cook up a meal for herself or the family.
Luckily, there are plenty of food delivery services around that will delivery food straight from one of her favorite restaurants to her door. She can order straight from her phone too.
Here are some options that may be available in your area:
4. Shipt Gift Card
Did I mention how much of a hassle it is for new Moms to get normal, every day tasks done? Oh okay, just making sure.
Well, here's another gift idea that will take one more thing on her to-do list easier.
Shipt offer same-day grocery delivery services. Right now, they're offering half off their annual membership. It is now $49 for the YEAR.

This is also a great gift idea for a Grandma in your life.

She would probably never buy herself this, but she would probably love to see the results and explore here cultural background based on her genetic makeup.
One of the better known DNA ancestry tests 23andMe is offering 20% off for Mother's Day.
Some of these companies even offer deals for purchasing more than one test so she can do her own test and her baby's.
