THE ULTIMATE CARE PACKAGE FOR A KNACKERED NEW MUM
Remember when you were recovering at home post-labour and you received a load of flowers. They were nice but it meant you had to get out of bed to find a vase (which is kind of hard when you can’t really walk/sit/have a newborn attached to your nipple 24/7) and you never even got to enjoy them because you spent the first three days in bed. Now, imagine that a giftbox packed with yummy raspberry flapjacks, chocolate truffles, green tea, a COOK food voucher (so you didn’t have to think about stepping foot into kitchen) and a MILK Beauty voucher (promising you some ‘me-time’ at the end of the tunnel) arrived on your doorstep. Thoughtful gift company ‘Don’t Buy Her Flowers’ (run by all round mega-mama Steph, one of the nicest people in Instagram land) has launched the ultimate TLC package. Team up with your best friends and treat the new mama in your life.
Prices start from £17.50 (Time Out Package above is £91)
THE SIMPLE YET THOUGHTFUL GIFT
If you are looking for a smaller gift, or just a little something to brighten up a new mamas day then check out these candles from Candelle & Co. They do bespoke candles so you can customise them how you wish. All the candles are handmade and printed by a super mama in Scotland. They are made from pure soy wax and because they are oil based fragrances with non chemically treated wooden wicks, they’re much safer to burn around the home than the usual paraffin wax candle with chemically treated wicks are. Our favourite is ‘F*cking Fabulous’ and we guarantee that’s exactly how you will make a new mama feel with one of these.
Prices start from £25.
THE LITTLE TREAT TO MAKE A KNACKERED NEW MUM SMILE
You don’t always need to splash the cash. If you’re low on funds or are simply popping in and don’t want to go empty handed, a little sticker is a guaranteed winner. And the best bit is that they’re £4!! Sam has them stuck all over her belongings.
Prices start from £4
THE GIFT THAT’S A LITTLE BIT MORE SPECIAL New mums will love anything personalised with their babies initials. These signet rings are a perfect gift for the fashion conscious. They come in silver and gold and you can add up to 3 letters. Join up with your girlfriends and get your new mama friend a gift they can keep forever.
Prices start from £125
