Being a new mom is one of the most wonderful feelings around, but it’s also a stressful and tiring time! If it’s a first-born, there is a lot to learn, and much of that is very, very new. If the mother already has children she will at least know what to expect, but that doesn’t mean she will be prepared for everything. That’s why friends and family are super-important when it comes to helping new moms through what can bd a troublesome time.
You will also want to buy your friend or family member a gift – but what can you get that hasn’t been done before? Finding original gifts for new moms can be hard, so we’ve made it easy for you with some great ideas that we think you’ll like – so read on!
This sort if gift is a long way from being the most fun or enjoyable to buy, but you might find you get your friend something that they have possibly forgotten along the way. What about, for example, a nursing shawl? These are excellent for providing that bit of privacy when feeding baby in public, and can be very stylish, too. There are plenty of options, in various sizes and colours, and they are not expected. Or, perhaps you could buy a baby monitor? Every new mom worries all the time, and can’t be by baby’s side 24hrs of the day, so a monitor makes a great gift. There are many more practical ideas, so check them out.
This is a great idea and makes a superb gift; you can buy specially created gift baskets for new moms that come with a great selection of different items in a stylish package. These are high quality, very neat and surprisingly affordable baskets that have been carefully put together by people who know just what will be appreciated – they don’t just do them for new moms, but for all sorts of occasions – and they are really very impressive. Have a look at the range on offer, there’s something for everyone in there.
A great idea for new moms who are still in the hospital is to buy them a selection of healthy food. They will be pretty limited with the hospital menu, so it’s certainly worth looking at, and you can put together a great selection very cheaply. It really will be appreciated, as being a new mom is definitely hungry work!
For a really nice gift that will be appreciated by all involved, why not buy your friend a photo session with mum, baby and all the family? It will create a set of memories that will last forever, and will not necessarily be something that they have thought of in this fraught, busy and exciting time.
