08 Dec Our Top 5 Christmas Gifts for New Mums
Celebrating the very first Christmas with a new baby is such a special time but when it comes to gifts, the focus tends to be on the tiny person who really doesn’t need anything! This Christmas, don’t forget your mama friends! Here are our top picks for Christmas gifts for new mums.
1. A bottle of French champagne
FACT: new mums get thirsty, too! And if they’ve been breastfeeding, you can bet they’re just a little tired of drinking water. Gifting your friend a bottle of champagne is the perfect chance to raise a toast to all her hard work – which means you get a glass, too! Alternatively, it’s a lovely treat to put away for another time – perhaps to celebrate the end of her breastfeeding journey or another significant milestone.
2. A massage or facial – with the offer to babysit!
Birth and adjusting to motherhood is so taxing on the body and most new mums rarely allow time just for themselves. A gift voucher to a beauty spa is the perfect way to help your new mama friend put herself first and truly relax. Even an hour away is blissful when you’re spending days (and nights!) caring for a precious little one. Of course, you’ll need to arrange the logistics of mama being separated from baby which can be tricky. Enlist the help of the new mama’s partner or offer babysitting services yourself. You get to spoil your friend and soak in some delicious baby snuggles. We love the gorgeous, relaxing & sustainable Sista Bliss located on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula in Victoria.
3. A meal delivery service
Good food is essential to fuel a new mama but the process of choosing what to cook each night can be exhausting. A delicious meal subscription service will help take the pressure off – even if it’s just a week’s worth of meals. Take a look at My Goodness Organics and Marley Spoon for inspiration.
4. A magazine subscription
Babies are certainly the cutest and most wonderful addition to life but the truth is, they can turn your brain to mush! This makes reading a novel almost impossible in the first year after baby arrives. A subscription to a fashion, home or parenting mag is perfect for bite-sized chunks of reading and gazing at pretty pictures.
5. Bubba Organics Lavender and Chamomile Premium Gift Box
Need one Christmas present to suit mum and bub? Our premium gift box contains 6 products to spoil them both. The organic baby wash doubles as a much-needed handwash for mum, and applying our Baby Moisture Lotion with its soothing Lavender and Camomile blend is the perfect pre-bed routine for a tired mama and bubba.
