Ever felt a little stuck with what to gift a new mum? Feel like she probably has everything she needs already? Fear not, here are five thought-full but inexpensive gifts to brighten a new mums day.
1 – Entertainment recommendations
Write out a list of film, TV or audiobook recommendations you think she might enjoy while feeding / tending to baby. A new Netflix series might be just the thing to get her through long cluster feeding sessions!
2 – Give her a midnight giggle
Use markers/ sharpies to decorate nappies with jokes or silly pictures to make her smile during midnight changes!
3 – Share the load
Offer to help share the load of new baby ‘admin’. Why not offer to help with organising new baby gifts or writing thank you cards? Alternatively, save her having to think about dinner by dropping off a little food care package.
4 – Start a memory book
Start a scrapbook for her to add little memories or milestones to as baby grows. You don’t need to be crafty – simply start her off with some page headings or use Pinterest for inspiration!
5 – Gift her your time
Pop round to chat and listen. Pop the kettle on, grab some biscuits and give her an opportunity to share how she is really doing.
