The first Mother’s Day is a very special time, and you’re probably looking for the perfect gift to show the new mum in your life just how much you cherish her.
Keep this Mother’s Day simple with a meaningful gift and a home-cooked dinner prepared by you. It’s tricky to leave the house with a new baby, so avoid big plans to avoid unnecessary stress! If the opportunity comes up, then you can always head out for a little last-minute family celebration.
Here are 6 of the best gift ideas for new mothers - there’s something to suit every budget and every mum!
Motherhood is achy! All of that feeding, rocking, and light sleep is enough to give anyone a pair of tight shoulders and a stiff back.
Gift the new mum in your life a full-body massage for Mother’s Day. She’ll feel like a new woman on returning home - helped not only by the massage but the fact that she got to leave the house for an hour! If you book the appointment yourself, make sure that you let mum know in advance so that she has the time to express milk or feed the baby if breastfeeding.
This personalised framehas the space for an image of mum and her newborn as well as a small spot to include a hand or footprint of the new baby.
A wonderful keepsake that any new mum would love - you can’t go wrong with this gift!
Etsy has a wonderful selection of bath gift-sets for new mums - if a woman ever needed a little pampering, it’s after the arrival of a baby! You could also make up a personalised bath gift-set that includes her favourite scents, products, and candle.
Remember to also offer an hour of your services so that she can take her bath in peace.
Night sky postersoffer a beautiful way to remember an important day - like the birth of a child! Simply enter the date, time, and location of the new baby’s birth and receive an image of what the sky overhead looked like at that exact time.
What a beautiful keepsake!
Sometimes the most meaningful gifts are the simplest ones. Offer to prepare a delicious dinner on Mother’s Day to treat the new mum in your life whilst giving her a break. You could create a menu and lay the table, or alternatively encourage her to climb into some pyjamas and feast in front of her favourite movie. I would personally go for the latter...
With a new baby around, making big plans can be stressful and likely to fail. Keep Mother’s Day simple for the new mum by having dinner in and planning a walk around a local park. Organising for a babysitter is probably the last thing she wants to do!
