An act of service could be something as simple as a hand massage with coconut oil, a cute hassle free Color Street manicure or a gift that makes her life much easier.

This bracelet below is fantastic for breastfeeding mothers so they always remember which side baby fed on last.
Does mama have a funny bone? Help her destress with a little giggle here and there. There are tons of funny socks you can choose from on amazing like the ones below.
