New mothers may find it difficult to get to the shops because of the stresses and sleepless nights of the first days with their newborn baby. If you are planning to buy a gift for a new mother, there are some items that your new mother can simply not do without.

There is a long list of regular and luxury baby gifts you can buy, from the fun to the practical. But you’d want to get a hold of those that will serve its purpose well for a long time, for the mother and the child. With that said, here is a list of some of the best presents that you can give a new mother and her baby.

  • Baby Strollers and Buggies

Mums can find it difficult to get out of the house with a newborn baby, especially at first where constant feeds and nappy changes may have them feeling tired and wanting to remain inside. However, to encourage your friend or family member to remember to step outside, you should consider looking into browsing everyday strollers which will enable them to take their baby with them wherever they choose to go. With the Discovery Stroller, you also get a cup holder, buggy organiser and storage bag included, ensuring that the new mum can carry whatever she needs with her.

  • Massage subscription

Many guests and visitors to the house may choose to give the new mother gifts for the baby, but have you considered giving her the gift of self-care and relaxation? The journey of giving birth and transitioning into motherhood can be incredibly stressful and challenging. Often, new mothers find it difficult to make time for themselves amid their new responsibilities as caregivers. In such situations, gifting them a spa day where they can enjoy a soothing massage to relieve muscle tension can be a considerate and heartfelt gesture. You can start by conducting a quick online search, such as “Massage Near Me,” and read customer reviews to find the most suitable option for the new mom.

  • Play Mat

Whilst many people opt for the classic soft toy, you should consider investing in a play mat. Not only can they keep the child entertained for hours on end, but they also give the mother a chance to relax in the knowledge that their child is playing in a safe environment. There are many different types of play mat, and you should look at the best type for the baby as they grow and learn.

  • Handprint Set

Babies grow fast, and many new mothers will want to keep the memories of the first precious months in any way that they can. By giving the gift of a hand-printing set, you will be able to ensure that the memories of the newborn baby are kept forever. These sets include clay or paint and allow you to capture the handprint of the newborn in the form of a personalised print. Additionally, there are casts that portray a mother and baby holding hands (click here to know more about hand casting). They are usually made of bronze, glass, or sterling silver and serve as a lifelong memory for new mothers.

  • Recipe Books

Not only is it important that the baby should have a nutritious diet, but it is incredibly important that new mothers have a nutritious diet to help them to recover and return to full health, especially as your vitamin and mineral levels can become diminished in pregnancy. Specialist new mother recipe books can provide your new mother with simple and delicious recipes to cook at home, no matter how tired they are.
