New mums deserve to feel special and pampered – after all they’ve carried a new life for close to ten months and have given birth to a tiny little miracle. Those first few weeks after labour – or a caesarean section in some cases – can be pretty tiring and overwhelming, so if you’re looking to make an incredible woman smile, here are 10 amazing gifts to consider.
- Diamond accessories
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, so why not treat the lady in your life to something sparkly? This could be a beautiful diamond necklace from the likes of 77diamonds.com or a pair of diamond earrings – you could even get both and really brighten her day.
- A diamond engagement ring
While we’re on the subject of diamonds, is a proposal imminent? Perhaps your little bundle of joy has given you the nudge you needed to pop the question? it certainly was for my then boyfriend who was obsessive at popping the question through my pregnancy!
- A pamper hamper
There’s no doubt about it, being a new mum is tiring but a pamper hamper will help put a spring back in your loved one’s step. It’s up to you what you include but throw in some hair conditioner, bubble bath, luxury face cream, foot cooling spray and other beauty products and you’ll be onto a winner – just make sure she gets time to use them.
- A spa day
If you’re looking to enjoy baby-free time as a couple then a spa day could be ideal. It’s the perfect way to relax and unwind and with many great deals available online you should be able to find a beautiful venue for a fantastic price.
- Professional massage
Carrying a baby around all day can result in a wealth of ailments including back and neck pain, so a professional massage is what many new mums need. A 45-minute back rub or a full-body massage is sure to go down a treat and will make a fab mummy very happy indeed.
- Movie subscription
Mums might not have much spare time on their hands, but when the baby goes to bed (eventually), they might want to watch a good movie or two – and that’s where a subscription to a reliable streaming service will come in handy.
- Photo memories
If you’ve been quietly snapping loads of brilliant memories, why not turn them into a keepsake she will love, be it a sentimental photobook or a personalised mug? Reputable sites offer a wide selection of photo printing services, so take your pick and make her day.
- Personalised baby book
Looking for a gift that will stand out from the crowd? Then a personalised storybook is the way forward. These can be created online and are the perfect way to welcome a new addition while making an emotional new mum cry – in a good way, of course.
- A blender
‘I can’t give a blender to someone as a present’, you might say. Well, think again. I was utterly thrilled with mine when it arrived at the beginning of the weaning stage! If someone was to buy me a new one this time I might literally love them forever.
- A pretty backpack
There’s a high chance that the new mum you are looking to surprise already has a baby changing bag to match her pushchair. That’s fine, but in the not too distant future she’s going to have a toddler on her hands and a backpack then becomes way more practical. We’re not talking one of those big and bulky sports bags you can take to the gym; more the pretty, feminine ones that are light and girly at the same time.
New mums (or that might just be me) are hormonal, so be sure to get them something good as a present, or reap the consequences. Just kidding, they’re likely to appreciate what you buy but the above ten ideas are bound to go down well.
