Thoughtful Gifts for New Babies and their Mums
We all want to celebrate the birth of a new life by giving a little something to mother and baby, following the birth, but there are so many gifts to choose from and it can be quite difficult to know which offerings will be treasured and which will be of little use.
It is important to buy gifts for baby that are practical and which will be used in the near future, because parents, although appreciated, will not want to be loaded up with gifts that they have no use for. It’s also important to think of mom when buying post-birth gifts. Sure, it’s only natural to be excited by baby, but you must remember that mom has just gone through a painful and life-changing experience and she deserves some love and appreciation too.
With that in mind, here are some examples of the most thoughtful gifts you can buy for new babies and their lovely mothers:
If there’s one thing you can say about newborn babies, it’s that they go through a lot of clothes. So, you really can’t go wrong with purchasing a hamper of high-quality baby clothes, like the Natures Purest newborn clothing range. Such a gift will be very well received by parents and will provide comfort and warm for baby. What’s not to like?
A Backlit E-Reader
New moms, and dads for that matter are going to spend a lot of time at home looking after the baby, not to mention the many sleepless nights they are going to have, so why not ensure that they have something relaxing to do when baby is sleeping?
An excellent backlit E-reader will give mom something to do as she watches over baby, and they are light enough that they can be held in one hand should the new arrival fall asleep in her arms, and reading her favorite novels will undoubtedly help mom stave off the dreaded baby brain.
A Pamper Package
It is unlikely that mom will want to leave baby alone for too long so soon after his or her birth, but that doesn’t mean she can’t enjoy spa-style pampering at home. Putting together a pamper package with high-end health and beauty products, a face mask, scented candles and whatever else you think she would like will show mom you are thinking about her at one of the most important times in her life.
If you want to really wow her with your kindness, why not pick up a few DVDs or find a new Netflix box set and have a girly night in with her?
A Baby Shusher
The first few months of life have to be stressful for a newborn baby. After all, they have left the safety and security of the womb for the big wide world, which can be pretty scary even when you’re an adult. Why not make the transition a little easier for them by purchasing a Baby Shusher – a device that mimics the sounds of the womb, helping baby to settle down.
Whatever gifts you choose for mom and baby, never forget that the best gift you can give them is the gift of time.
