Best gifts to go in a gift box for a new mum? Our Top 8 gifts are unboxed.

Unwashed hair, banana bread crumbs in the fold of her belly, a cold cup of tea, a bit of spew on her shoulder and heavy eyelids reminiscent of the good old clubbing days. These are the unwanted gifts a new mother receives from life after giving birth to her new baby.

There’s no denying the glam factor. We are yet to find a gift box that contains a quiet room, warm glow of sunshine peeking through the curtains, scones with jam and cream or abundant sleep, there are an abundance of special gifts to go in a giftbox for a new mum that comes close. We have listed our Top 8 best gifts below and our range of gift boxes for your favourite new mum.

Sometimes we can’t be there for the New Mum

These days you can find pamper gift hampers infused with luxe and useful goodies to make life easier and smell much nicer (10 nappy changes a day anyone?). Whilst rewarding and beautiful, the early weeks and months of parenting can also be challenging. Unfortunately, now more than ever friends and family simply can't always be there to lend a hand especially if they live far away or overseas. It’s no wonder we make a big effort to give her something super special to chase away those baby spews, ah sorry, blues, and let her know she is amazing, powerful, loved and deserving of indulgence.

Self care and postpartum recovery

When we speak to new mums they tell us how difficult it is to prioritise self-care in those early weeks and months. #nosleep #notime #noenergy.

Sending a gift box that is the perfect balance of pampering gifts and useful gifts goes a long way to make life a little easier. Sprinkle a little humour with our condom and Metamucil sachet - trust us, a new mum needs any excuse to LOL in those early days - and you have the perfect potion to make your fave mama feel special and cared for.

Over the years we have asked, tested and co-created with new mums our own gift hampers. We want to share the most popular best gifts for a new mother. Below is a list of our top 8 pampering and useful gift ideas.

Useful gifts for New Mums

These gifts are like the quiet achiever of the gift world. They’re not a huge fan of being photographed in their natural environment but they address the very basic earthly needs of new mums. We felt the absence of these products after our own births so they are now essentials in any gift box.

A new mum’s baby is an expert at sensing when the least convenient time is to want a feed - precisely when she is famished, thus enters the easy to reach and much packet of trail mix and protein bar. Visitors are coming, photos are taken and suddenly your new best friend is dry shampoo and breath mints. The stinging pain of the perineum is soothed by freezing a condom to make a padsicle to put in your big comfy undies. Don’t get us started on postpartum constipation…Here are our
