The Best Christmas Gift Ideas For New Mums
Christmas is such a special time of year, especially for new mums. I gave birth to my son a week and a half before Christmas, and there is nothing quite like celebrating the holiday season with your newborn in your arms. A beautiful, healthy baby is definitely the best Christmas gift that any new mum can ask for, but it’s definitely worth showing her a bit of extra love with these thoughtful gift ideas!
The last thing on any new mum’s mind is cooking. One of the best things you can do for her is to make sure she doesn’t have to worry about what to make for dinner on a given night. Preparing a lovely, home cooked meal is the most thoughtful thing you can do. There are also other options, like meal subscriptions, you could gift her. COOK offers great frozen ready meals, including a New Parents Meal Bundle (which, I can confirm, is amazing having used the service ourselves when we had our son).
You honestly cannot go wrong with a gorgeous floral bouquet. Bloom and Wild, or example, has a huge selection of arrangements to choose from, including letterbox arrangements that can be popped right through the door (so no risk of waking baby by ringing the doorbell!).
There is nothing that a new mum would cherish more than this gorgeous artwork of her little one in 1:1 scale. There are a few different artwork variations to choose from and it can be personalised with baby’s name, date and time of birth, and measurements. It is an absolutely stunning, personalised piece of artwork that is sure to make her smile (or cry – good tears, though!).
I don’t know anyone that would say no to having tons of nappies and wipes on hand. They’re probably the most gifted items at baby showers, and rightfully so, because you go through so many of them in those first few months. Joone’s nappy subscription is a great way to make sure there are always nappies on hand! These nappies are soft, super absorbent, and healthy. The cute patterns are an added bonus, too – just check out their new Christmas prints!
Muslin cloths and swaddles are incredibly handy to have around. They can be used for so many different things – cleaning spit up, snotty noses, and using at bath time, to name a few. You can get them in gorgeous patterns as well!
Those newborn days can be very heavy; between the constant feeding, night waking, and just general tiredness from adjusting to life with a newborn, it can be hard to relax. This gift hamper comes with a variety of things to help new mums relax and enjoy a moment of peace (no matter how brief it may be).
This bundle is a great stocking stuffer for new mums. The oil and cream can be used in pregnancy onwards, and are both organic and breastfeeding friendly. The perfect additions for a new mum self-care routine!
Wraps are a great way for new mums to cuddle up with their newborns (and bonus: have free hands!). These wraps are easy to put on, and have four-way stretch to ensure comfort and support for mummy and baby.
It can be difficult to find the right clothing after having a baby, especially if nursing. A quality, comfortable top with easy access poppers is a must for new mums. Even better if it comes with a matching shirt for their new bestie!
I hope this has given you a bit of inspiration for your Christmas shopping!
