Being a new mom isn’t just the most important job in the world, it’s one of the most rewarding too. One of the greatest things about becoming a mom is the way that friends rally round and show us just how much we mean to them, so of course it’s important that we do exactly the same to our friends who are also experiencing the joys of becoming a mom. A baby shower is a great way to do this, and here are three ideal gifts you can give to a new mom at the shower or after they return home with their baby.
1. Organic Gift Set
As a new mom, you’ll know that there are certain essential items that you just can’t have too much of, and a gift set is a great way to provide supplies of many of these vital items. They typically contain beautiful romper suits, a swaddling cloth, a hat and a bib and they’re guaranteed to keep baby warm, contended and looking oh so cute. When they’re organic, you can be safe in the knowledge that you’re doing your bit to help the planet too, which will be great news for our children’s generation. It’s a perfect baby shower gift UK and beyond, and there are lots of gorgeous styles and varieties to choose from.
We naturally think of buying a present for the newborn baby, and the gift sets above are an unbeatable purchase for that purpose, but don’t forget that mom could do with a little pampering too. The journey through pregnancy and then childbirth is an incredible, joyous, life affirming one but, let’s face it, it can also be draining physically and emotionally. Help your friend celebrate and get the fizz back in their life by buying them a fine bottle of champagne. It’s the world’s most famous and exclusive wine, and it can only be grown in a carefully specified area of France. The result is that it tastes great and it makes drinking it seem very special, so what better treat for a new mom? If you’re lucky, she might even let you have a glass of it.
Gifts are valuable for two reasons: they strengthen relationships, and can mark special occasions. But one of the best gifts a new mom can receive doesn’t cost a penny and is incredibly valuable: time. Moms are run off their feet, and the natural worries that come with motherhood can leave us feeling even more tired, so any help from a friend is always appreciated. When you give a new mom a card, write in it a pledge that you’ll be there whenever needed, from babysitting to simply sharing quality time with her.
With gifts for a new mom, it really is the thought that counts, and baby gift sets, champagne, and a personalized message saying that you’re there for them are all perfect presents which are sure to be appreciated. Being a new mom is an amazing experience, but it’s even better when you realize that you’ve got your best friends forever by your side.
