4 Gifts For New Mummies And Mothers-To-Be This Mothers' Day
by Chiara Micallef
The first Mother's Day is a super important one – this special day for first-time mummies will set the bar for all Mother's Days to come. Whether it's for your sister, daughter, wife, girlfriend or friend – we're here to help you pick out a great gift for this wonderful mum.
From super useful presents like some much-needed relaxing getaway, here are four lovely gifts you can give to new mothers and mums to be this Mother's Day.
1. A Pamper Hamper
Who has ever said no to a hamper? Nobody, that's who.
From pampering at-home gift sets that include foot and hand masks, bath salts or even a box of the new mummy's favourite chocolates and beauty products – the choice is yours. But we do suggest adding a face mask, a foot pack, bath salts, herbal teas and eye patches – the perfect me-time staples for the ultimate pamper hamper.
2. A Relaxing Lunch Date
Whether you're planning on going out to a fancy restaurant or organising a pleasant lunch in your yard or terrace – eating, drinking and having a delightful time together is always a great way to help a new mum relax and let her hair down. Staying at home is a great way to be around the newborn – particularly if the new mum is not comfortable leaving her nest yet.
3. A Baby Sitting Day
Everyone deserves a break – especially new mums. Plan out – and spend the day – babysitting for a new mother while she takes her time to set her bearings straight. It could be anything from having a nice bath to spending the day out shopping for groceries or clothes without worrying about children.
4. A Yoga Class
Baby-Mum yoga classes are a great gift for new or active mums who like to work out but are worried about sacrificing their baby time. A baby and mum yoga session is a great way for new active mums to spend time with their babies while getting in a good workout.
