03 Dec Christmas Gift Ideas For New Parents
What’s the best way to shower the new parents in your life with love this festive season? It can be tricky to think of Christmas gift ideas for new parents. Should the present be for baby alone? Or should you choose something that will nurture and spoil the parents, too?
We’ve compiled a list of Christmas gift ideas for new parents that are thoughtful as well as practical. They’re the perfect way to let your loved ones know that you’re thinking of them at this special and often overwhelming time.
Luxury Baby Skin Care Gift Box
Babies are born with sensitive skin – and a nourishing skin care routine can help keep this delicate skin soft and soothed. Spoil the new parents and precious bubba with a premium baby skin care. The Lavender & Chamomile Premium Gift Box is filled with everything the new family could need for bath time care – and a snuggly organic cotton wrap for sleep time, too. Not only is it a very practical gift, it’s also a beautiful sensory pleasure to use 100% natural skin care made with the finest natural ingredients that Mother Earth has to offer. Divine!
Gifts for Breastfeeding Mums
A gift that helps keep a busy breastfeeding mum hydrated is always a winner! Put together your own hamper with a selection of breastfeeding-friendly items. The Tour Brew Flask can hold either tea or water, allowing mums to safely transport their drink of choice. Other items to consider adding to your hamper include lactation biscuits (try Pinky’s Boobie Bikkies), reusable fabric breast pads, and a breastfeeding pillow to keep mum and bub comfortable.
A Nourishing Meal Delivery
Give the gift of a week off cooking! Every new parent knows that feeding the baby can occupy every waking moment. However, it’s so important that new parents eat healthy, nourishing meals to keep up their energy during those early days.
A meal delivery service like Gourmet Dinner Service can be gifted to the new parents for a week or as long as you like. Chef prepared and only requiring reheating, it’s such a wonderful way to ensure tired new parents are eating well each night.
Postnatal Massage At Home
A pregnant body goes through many incredible changes. And after the baby is born, parents often find it difficult to take a moment to rest and heal. For this reason, truly relaxing Christmas gift ideas for new parents are a perfect choice!
For mums looking for that luxe in-salon treatment, we recommend Body Freedom Urban Spa & Clinic. Their treatments for new mums and couples are simply divine!
A Family Portrait Session
Newborn babies don’t stay that way for long so give the gift that will capture all that tiny squishy magic for a lifetime. Family photography sessions can often be done at home, with professional newborn family photographers supplying their own props and lighting.
A session including a digital copy of the edited photos can cost upwards of $1000. Why not share the cost with other family and friends to purchase this special gift for the new parents? Don’t gift another baby sleepsuit or soft toy! Invest in a gift that will be adored for generations to come.
Search for newborn photographers in your area to view their previous work and enquire about photo packages and pricing.
