If a friend or relative has just had a baby, you are probably in the middle of choosing them the perfect gift. The chances are that they have already got everything that they need for the baby from their baby shower. So you might be a little stuck when it comes to choosing them a gift.
I’ll admit that coming up with a gift idea for a new mummy isn’t always easy, especially when you don’t know what they have already got. However, if you opt for a gift that is a little different from the norm, you can pretty much guarantee that no one else will have got them it.
To help you come up with the perfect gift idea for the new mum, here are a few ideas that are a little different. Fingers crossed that an idea below takes your fancy!
Delicious homemade meals
I can remember those early few weeks of motherhood being an absolute nightmare. Obviously, having a new baby was the best gift I could ever have received. But when it came to getting on with simple things, like cooking a meal, I just didn’t have the time or energy. Taking care of a new baby is hard, and even harder when you have other small children to care for as well.
Any new mum will be grateful for a couple of batches of delicious homemade meals - trust me on this. When you are trying to shed that baby weight but are stuck in a cycle of eating ready meals and takeaways, it can really start to get you down. Having a friend drop off some delicious homemade food, is, at this point, one of the most amazing presents you can receive as a new mum.
Cute decor for the nursery
Your friend might have a gorgeous nursery, but it may be lacking that sparkle. As a busy new mum, your friend won’t have the time to add those little touches that will make the nursery extra special, but you can.
Pillows with quotes on, beautiful baby blankets, stylish prints for the walls, are all ideal gifts for a nursery. If you don’t know what the colour scheme of the nursery is, make sure only to opt for decor that is neutral.
Lots of new mums are into organic baby products, including soft furnishings, so it might be a good idea to go organic with your present. You can learn more at makaboo.com about organic gifts, such as gorgeous pillows and blankets.
Your friend is probably incredibly busy as a new mum, and wouldn’t have the time or organise a baby photography session. Babies grow so quickly, which is why a baby photography session is an amazing gift that all new mums will love.
To make things easier for the new mum, opt for a photography session that can be done at her home. This will make things a lot less stressful, as the new mummy won’t have to travel with her little one.y
