You’ve had that invite to a Baby Shower and can’t decide what gift to buy or maybe you’ve had a whip round for your colleague who’s just about to leave work on maternity leave and you have no clue as to what to get her! There are so many things to consider and baby clothing may look cute but mums always end up with way too much that might not be to their taste or the right size for little one.
When it comes to buying gifts it all seems to be about the baby with the mummy-to-be often getting overlooked. With everything that a pregnant woman goes through during her nine months, never mind the birth wouldn’t it be nice to treat that gorgeous Mama to something that’s perfect for that moment in her life; something to show that you’re thinking about her and showing her that you care.
Top three gift ideas for New Mums:
- Pregnancy Massage
Buy her a voucher for a pregnancy massage – a lovely relaxing treat that could help relieve any aches or pains.
It is a physical impossibility for a pregnancy Mama to paint her own toenails so a voucher for a luxury pedicure might go down a treat.
- Mama’s Moments Maternity Kit
This is our own award-winning gift-set that we’ve developed to support a Mama throughout the various stages of pregnancy, birth and life as a new mum. We use naturally derived aromatherapy and herbal based ingredients to support the various issues that women can face during the journey from bump to baby. The gift set can be used during pregnancy by preparing for birth with “Down Below – Perineal Massage Oil” whilst “Cool it Mama – Cooling Body Spritz” will revitalise body and mind throughout pregnancy and labour. Once “Mama-hood” has arrived “Pure Bliss” compress solution will soothe tender, swollen intimate areas after birth whilst “Bosom Buddies” support those looking to breastfeed. The gift-set is available from Boots, Holland & Barrett and Look Fantastic as well as Amazon.
So let’s treat that new Mama to show her how great she’s doing - Happy Shopping!
