From fresh flowers to clothes and toys, there’s no shortage of presents to choose from to celebrate the arrival of a new baby. But what if you’re after something a little different that stands out from the crowd and really puts a smile on the parents’ faces? Keep reading for five gift ideas that are guaranteed to impress.
1. Welcome hamper
Why narrow down your present options when you can offer up a selection of goodies to baby and mum with a welcome hamper? These collections can contain an array of gifts, including toys, clothes, bath time accessories and skincare products. For an extra special touch, they can also be personalised. For example, if you shop online at Babyblooms, you can select hampers, boxes and baskets with elements including personalised snuggle wraps and soft toys.
2. Baby clothes bouquet
Fresh flowers are a popular present choice for new parents, but if you’re after something a little more practical, why not choose a baby clothes bouquet instead? Featuring carefully arranged silk blooms interspersed with baby clothes, they offer the perfect balance of beauty and functionality. Once the clothes have been removed, the bouquet remains as a lasting display.
3. Mum and baby jewellery
If you’re looking for a more unusual offering, perhaps mum and baby jewellery would hit the mark. You can take your pick from an impressive selection of specially designed necklaces and bracelets that celebrate the new arrival and that mum can treasure for a lifetime. One great option is a breastfeeding bracelet that can easily be swapped from one wrist to the other in order to record the last side of feeding. Designed to be easy to remove and fasten with one hand, they’re ideal for new mums.
4. Nappy cake
New parents can never have too many nappies, so an expertly crafted nappy cake is bound to be a welcome gift. Designed to look like real cakes, these creations are often given during baby showers, but they’re also a great choice when the little person arrives. As well as nappies, these cakes can contain everything from bibs and muslin squares to bodysuits and socks.
5. Pampering skincare products
Understandably, babies tend to take the focus when they come into the world – but after the physical and emotional effort of pregnancy and labour, mums deserve to be spoiled too. To pamper your friend, relative or colleague, why not give her some luxurious skincare products? From rejuvenating facial moisturisers, to refreshing skin spritzes, to relaxing bath soaks, there are plenty of fabulous gifts to choose from that will help mum to unwind and ensure she feels appreciated.
The great thing is, many of these presents can be ordered quickly and easily online, often with next day delivery options. So, you won’t have to wait long to offer your congratulations to the proud parents.
