Finding the perfect gift for anyone can be a challenge – especially for a new mum. Her needs and wants have undoubtedly changed since the birth of her little one, and understanding what she will appreciate the most when it comes to gifts can be difficult.
If you’ve been scratching your head and drawing blanks, we have some great gift ideas that every new mama is sure to love. Our first and favorite are cool and comfortable nursing tops, dresses, and bottoms.
Fashionable and Flattering Nursing Clothes
Breastfeeding attire has traditionally been drab and shapeless. We at Peachymama have made it our mission to change this by offering an extensive all-seasons line of breastfeeding clothes that are trendy, and that will complement mama’s hot “mum” curves.
We absolutely love our new “Burgundy Wrap Nursing Dress”. This elegant dress featuring a soft drape can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion. Like all of our Peachymama nursing clothing, it allows you to easily and discreetly feed your bub, so you never need to feel awkward or self-conscious about nourishing your little one.
Peachymama also offers an extensive line of everyday nursing clothes that can be worn well after the baby stops breastfeeding. From basic tanks and tees to c-section friendly pants of varying cuts and lengths, we have something for every mum.
A Family Photo Session
A common complaint among mothers is that they simply don’t get to be in enough photos with their family. Arranging for and funding a family photo session with a professional photographer is a gift she will surely love and treasure for the rest of her life.
Want to help her make it even more memorable? Add a digital photo frame that she can keep at home or take to the workplace, or have a photo book with her favorite pictures made for her.
A Trip to the Spa
Self-care is incredibly important for mums, especially those with an infant at home. Purchase the mum in your life a spa gift card, or better yet, take her along with you! You can both enjoy a mani, a pedi, and a massage while chatting about what’s new and happening in your lives. The new mama in your life will appreciate the adult talk-time!
A Deep Cleaning of her Home
Whether done by you or a professional cleaning company, cleaning the home is something that new mothers just don’t have enough time for. Between the baby’s needs, and chronic fatigue, the idea of wiping down the counter or picking up a broom shouldn’t even have to be on her mind.
By scheduling one or more cleaning sessions, you’re giving the new mum in your life an excuse to rest, relax, and enjoy herself. Now she can truly “sleep when the baby sleeps” without having to worry about washing, folding, or vacuuming.
One or More Gift Cards
Gift cards are so useful to a new mama as they give her an excuse to treat herself rather than spend everything – time, energy, and money – on her newest addition. Gift cards to restaurants that deliver are a great idea (saving her the stress of having to plan and cook meals), and vouchers to a nearby movie theater give the mum in your life the chance to get out and catch the latest flick on the big screen.
Don’t forget that one of the best and easiest gifts you can give any new mum is your time. Whether it’s sitting and catching up with her in her home, heading out to the coffee shop to chat, or watching the baby so she can take a much-appreciated nap or shower, sometimes the best gift you can give is yourself.
