Gift Ideas for New Mums
A few of my friends have had babies recently and some are due in the next few months, so it got me thinking about some gift ideas for new mums that we might get for them when the baby arrives.
I was given so many lovely gifts for me and the babies and here are some of the things I loved the most.
My gift ideas for new mums are:
1. Nappy Changing Essentials!
We were sent a huge basket of new baby goodies from an aunt including some baby wipes and nappy rash cream or powder from Curash! The wipes are thick and absorbent, soap free, alcohol free and hypoallergenic and we’ve used them on both babies.
I love the Curash range as it’s gentle on my baby’s skin and even use their baby shampoo myself!
2. Teething Necklace
Whilst you cannot predict when it will start, teething is inevitable for all babies. I love the range of teething necklaces from Fox & Finn. They’re so pretty and stylish compared to others I’ve seen that look like cheap, brightly coloured toys.
These beautiful necklaces are soft, chewable and 100% non-toxic – perfect for baby and mum!
Fox & Finn sent me this beautiful Avery necklace in ‘Mint Gelato’ and I love wearing it. Mint is my favourite colour so it goes with a lot of my outfits! Mini loves gnawing on it too.
3. Grobag Baby Sleep Bags
Both my babies have loved sleeping in these beautiful baby sleep bags. They are available for babies from Newborn size upwards and in different togs so there’s a Grobag for all year round!
Here’s my baby son cuddled up in the Grobag Seaside Sleep Bag in size 6-18 months.
4. Skincare for Mum and Baby
I love skincare gifts and I’m also a big fan of products that are gentle enough for all of my family can use. I love the GAIA Skin Naturals range.
I love this GAIA Natural Baby Mini Traveller kit which contains 50ml sizes of their Bath & Body Wash, Baby Shampoo Baby Moisturiser and and we always take it with us when we travel or stay somewhere over night.
These organic and natural products are great for all the family and smell lovely too! Pregnancy can sometimes take it’s toll on skin so using gentle, natural products is a good idea.
GAIA also have a lovely Baby Starter Kit which contains these bottle plus a Soothing Lotion and Massage Oil! You can find it here.
5. Everything they’ve been missing!
Think sushi from their favourite restaurant or a bottle of champagne! 9 months is a long time to go without some of your favourite food and drink and, although I didn’t go wild, it was lovely to have a little drink and raise a toast to my new babies!
Or how about when you’re invited to visit the new baby, take around some prepared freezer meals to help the new little family out? Or you could offer to come around and help with cleaning or washing or even taking the baby for a walk to give the new parents a little bit of sleep – they’ll love you for that!
What was the best gift you were given as a new parent?
Disclosure: we were sent some lovely products from Curash, GAIA and Grobag in exchange for our honest review although we had been using products from the ranges for years and love them!
