Mother’s Day is the perfect time to treat the new moms in your life to something special. Whether you gift her something she can use for a little me-time or a special piece of jewelry that she’ll cherish for years to come, these first Mother’s Day gifts from local women-owned businesses will show her just how appreciated she is.
Sometimes the last thing on a new mom’s mind is cooking, so why not gift her a delicious meal from Send a Friend Lasagna? Lasagna flavors include cheese and sauce, vegetable, or gorgonzola to name a few, and gluten-free options can be made upon request.
Send a Friend Lasagna, $27 and up at sendafriendlasagna.com.
The few minutes that a new mom can spend soaking in a bathtub are precious, so to make her tub time even more special, gift her this orange and chamomile bath tea from Lisa Abner’s CentriTerra Natural Bath & Body Products. To use, just place the tea bag in a warm bath during filling and squeeze the bag periodically to release the blend of sea salts, orange, and green tea into the water. Best of all: There’s no messy clean-up.
