Although new mum gifts focus more on the baby, it’s also thoughtful to consider new mums. According to Macrotrends, the UK’s birth rate currently stands at 11.433 live births per 1000 women. Although it is a slight decline from figures recorded in 2018, it’s still prudent to focus on the new mother. That said, here are three postpartum gifts to present to your friend who recently had a baby.
Fruit Smoothie Clay Mask Set By Exfloin
This fruit smoothie clay mask is perfect to help put some life back into your skin after you’ve had a baby.
Skin to Skin Tops by Seraphine
This British fashion line has become popular because of the Duchess of Cambridge’s patronage. All clothing from this brand focuses on pregnant and postpartum women. With over 70% of its clothes made from organic cotton and other sustainable materials, they eliminate irritation on the sensitive skin of new mums.
Meanwhile, the waistband of its jeans line is designed to fit on a still visible ‘after baby bump’ comfortably. Seraphine clothing is stretchy, making them convenient for nursing. They don’t use adhesive material that inhibits breast milk pumping sessions. They are easy to clean and keep their quality after a machine wash.
Beauty Set Kit
Many women will admit that the days and weeks following childbirth are a heightened period for self-critique. While others continue to battle the lingering effects of a pregnant look, others secretly desire to look their best. Fortunately, a beauty kit will help restore their glow. Most kits come with moisturisers and makeup products that give their looks an instant boost. You can take it a step further by personalising the kit. For example, getting a logo on gift sets is a quick but impressive way to differentiate the beauty kit from others on the market.
Birthstone Pendant Necklace
Personalised gift items like jewellery hold much meaning to a new mum; therefore, you can leverage a birthstone pendant necklace. Sometimes, it can become a family heirloom likely to be passed down for generations. However, when choosing a birthstone pendant, be sure that the stone is for the corresponding month to hold more significance for the wearer.
For example, Ruby is the birthstone for July and should not be confused with the Pink Tourmaline birthstone meant for October. Two birthstones – Opal and Pink Tourmaline – are also linked to the tenth month. Therefore, you can choose to give both to create a lasting impression. While at it, ensure that the necklace is nickel-free, especially because many people have allergies to this metal. To be on the safer side of caution, always choose hypoallergenic jewellery. It’s also prudent to present these precious gifts in a beautiful casing to further enhance their appeal.
While this is not an exhaustive list, it gives you an idea of what you can give a postpartum mum. Indeed, it is prudent to go the extra mile to make your gifts a significant aspect of the new mum’s life. Hopefully, you’ll consider these options as you prepare to visit your friend or family member who recently had a baby.
