A Mother's Day Gift Idea for the New Mom.

Mother's Day is hard for me.

After losing my Mom less than two years ago, I don't like to plan too much for the day.

This year, we have cause for celebration, though, as we have two new babies in the family and new life is something to be very thankful for.

Two of my nieces, who just happen to be sisters, became first time Mother's over the year and they deserve some extra pampering as they celebrate their first Mother's Day.

I have made up some gift baskets for my nieces and filled them with some pampering products that I know they will love.

I always talk about beauty products, how we deserve to pamper ourselves and the importance of self-care, and there's no better time to gift a new Mom with just that so she can take some time and indulge in some self-care.

My pampering gift baskets include some of my favorite Dove beauty products plus a few of the new Baby Dove products so the new moms can try them on her favorite little bundles of joy. 

I picked up all of the Dove products at Rite Aid, where I have been shopping a lot for my beauty products lately. I was thrilled when I even saved a little money, too. 

Right now, Rite Aid is running some special offers on Dove Beauty and the new Baby Dove products.

When you buy any Dove or Baby Dove product, you will get a second at 50% off. This offer is valid 5/6-5/12 and 5/20-5/26. PLUS, until June 2nd, when you spend $12 on Dove or Baby Dove products, you will earn $4.00 Wellness+ Bonus Cash. 

My new Mom gift baskets were so easy to make.

I just took a little crate that I picked up at Rite Aid, too, and stuffed it with some tissue paper. I bought a frame for the all-important baby picture, a few candles, a Mother's Day card, some of the new Baby Dove products and a few of my favorite Dove products plus a bath pouf.

I simply arranged it all nicely in the crate.

How great was it that I found everything at Rite Aid? Super convenient. 

I know that my nieces will love the Dove bath and body products for every day and a little extra pampering.

I use the Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash in my shower and being a new Mom, I know how the hormonal issues and constant washing can leave skin really dry. This body wash will really be helpful. Plus, the fresh clean scent is perfect.

I also included the Dove Shower Foam on Caci's suggestion; that is her favorite product, so this gives my nieces a choice. 

I am addicted to the new Dove Exfoliating Body Polish, so I know that my nieces will enjoy this when they take the extra time in the shower to pamper themselves. The gentle exfoliating body polish leaves skin glowing.

For baby, the new Baby Dove products will surely be a treat.

Rite Aid carried both the Rich Moisture version that I included, plus a sensitive skin version. Being in New England where we deal with temperature changes daily, I chose the Rich Moisture version, because I know that a baby can have dry skin. I can't wait to hear how they like these.

I'm excited to give my nieces their pretty gift baskets and visit with the babies on Mother's Day. What do you have planned for Mother's Day?
