Becoming a mom is one of the most beautiful, life-changing experiences. That goes without saying. It can also be pretty terrifying, nauseatingly tiring and means you’re guaranteed a lot less me-time once baba comes along. So when it comes to celebrating a first Mother’s Day, it’s important to welcome new members to the motherhood club in style. A truly thoughtful gift is a good place to start, we say. Here’s a few from us that promise to please and perhaps even bring a few of those happy tears.
The best gifts are ones you can hold onto forever, which makes a personalised photo book just the thing for new moms. Capture special moments from her journey into motherhood (the first scan picture, squishy newborn shots, baby shower or christening snaps) to create a pressie that’ll leave her bursting with pride and joy. They also make lovely baby books, if you leave white space for handwritten captions and little mementoes to be stuck inside, like hospital wrist bands, Polaroids and ‘Welcome to the world’ cards.
Everyone knows being a mum is a 24/7 job that requires impressive time-management skills in order to juggle all those nap times, feeds, baby yoga classes – the list goes on and on. Get the new mum in your life prepped and organised with a daily planner. Ours are made just the right size, so they can go wherever she goes and they’ll lend a hand in managing the day-to-day, which equals more precious moments of time for herself. Add her name or a fun, fitting title, like SuperMom, No. 1 Mom or Cuddle Queen, to the front for a personal touch.
Personalised stationery gifts: a good gift all year round, a great gift for recent mums. Choose between our boxed notecards, a notebook and planner duo or a notebook and notecard set, then personalise each design with her name. We can especially recommend the notecards for new mammas – ideal for thank you notes, party invitations or fancy reminders to herself (hey, why give them all way?) Pretty as well as practical, this lot promise to spruce up coffee tables, bedside chests and desks when not in use.
