Christmas gifts for new mums

Both Katie and Georgie know what it is like to have a new little person enter your life close to Christmas. 4 years ago, Katie was frantically wrapping presents at 3am on Christmas morning during the only hour that Harriet slept that whole night, and Georgie remembers it taking her two weeks to put the Christmas tree up amongst nappies, feeds and general chaos when Harry was born. Therefore, we also know that having a few lovely presents to open which allow for some luxury to enter your new exciting if somewhat sleep deprived life does help make those 4am feeds maybe a tiny, weeny bit easier (well, maybe not, but presents are always a welcome distraction). Here are our choice of Christmas gifts for new mums…

Christmas gifts for new mums

1. Animal and striped print scarf by Zara £25.99 – a large scarf is great not only as a winter warmer but also as a cover-up when breastfeeding.

2. Black ballet pumps by Air & Grace £150.00 – as a new mum, you want comfortable, easy to put on shoes and whilst Uggs have their place, it does make you feel better if you feel as though you’ve made an effort. This is where Air & Grace comes in. We will be doing a post on them shortly as Georgie has the leopard print boots and has practically lived in them since she purchased them. They are so, so comfortable, you really have to try them!

3. “Take It Slow” pyjamas £95.00 and cashmere sleep socks £35.00 (not pictured) by Yawn – a button through pyjama top is perfect should you decide to breastfeed and having a good-looking pair of PJ’s in case guests should just pop by is a must. Add a bit of luxury with some cashmere bed socks and you can lounge about with you new arrival in style. (We also feel the title of this set of pyjamas is very apt for a new mum!).

4. Delicious Almond Collection by L’Occitane £49.00 – we featured the shower oil in our new mum essentials and we still maintain it is a fast way to cleanse as well as moisturise all in one go but it has a bit of a luxurious feel to an everyday task you try to fit in around naps.

5. Beatrice Tote by JEM + BEA £199.00 – a chic changing bag makes you feel a bit more like yourself. This soft leather tote is roomy enough to carry all the essentials whilst not looking like the sickly sweet changing bags which are often found on the market.

6. Written personalised bracelet by Laura Gravestock £100.00 – this piece with the new additions name is a lovely keepsake for a new mum…and stylish too!

7. Babyliss Big Hair 50mm Rotating Hot Air brush £34.99 – as new mums we remember ever wondering if we would be able to actually get dressed before midday ever again, let alone “do” our hair. This clever gadget is easy to use, can be used on almost dry hair (so it takes less time to dry) and makes hair look styled with minimal effort.

8. Hot water bottle by Yuyu £69.00 – you may wonder why on earth you would buy someone a long hot water bottle but these are great for the aches and pains often associated with childbirth (especially backache). It can also help when breastfeeding as it can help milk supply if breasts become lumpy and sore.

As new mums, what would have been your perfect Christmas presents (apart from a full nights’ sleep, your old body back to how it was in your twenties and an in-house hairdresser?).
