But it can also be an exhausting time, too. After plenty of sleepless nights, crying fits, and obscene blowouts, the new mom in your life deserves to be spoiled rotten. Before you head to the store or do some online shopping, consider what she would most appreciate: a day of much-needed alone time, a special day with the family, or a mix of both.
