Mother’s Day is right around the corner, being a special day to honour all mothers and motherhood. If you’re looking to treat your spouse, sister or friend who is a mother for the first time and make her feel special, why not skip the flowers and surprise her with one of these unique gift ideas instead? 

A hair and makeup appointment:

Because a new mum may barely have time to herself, treat her to an in-home hair and makeup session. That way, she can get a professional makeover without leaving the house.

Breastfeeding is not an easy task for any new mum. So, buy your new mum a breastfeeding pillow to help her do the job smoothly. 

Footbath spa

Home spa-inspired footbath:

After having carried around extra weight for nine months, any new mum would love to be pampered with a home footbath to revive her tired feet. 

Scrapbook

Scrapbook:

This can help new mums to record memories of their baby’s life using clip art, photographs and other mementos. Include some baby-themed embellishments to enhance the pages of the book.

Video camera:

Though it’s a little bit expensive, a video camera can help a new mum to document every minute of her new life with her baby. 

 

Beauty basket:

A new mum often doesn’t have the time to take care of herself properly. A basket filled with moisturisers, hair elastics, shower gels and pretty lipsticks will help her not to forget about herself.

Hand sanitisers

Hand sanitisers:

Instead of leaving the room to wash her hands, a new mum can just put a hand sanitiser in every room the baby’s diaper might be changed in. 

Dry shampoo

Dry shampoo can be a lifesaver for a new mum to get refreshed in her limited amount of free time. 

Nursing tops

Stylish, loose-fitting tops are the best gift for new mums planning to nurse, providing ease for the task of breastfeeding.

This will let new mums get some hands-free time. They are built to keep babies snug and help parents get a few things done without constantly having to hold their babies.

A silk sleep set:

A new mum may not get many opportunities to sleep during the first few months. Giving her a luxurious silk pillowcase and an eye mask will make it easier for her to fall asleep while being better for the hair and skin while she rests up.
