Help make your new mum's first Mother's Day really special.
There are many firsts for a new mum but not many are focused on her. But Mother's Day is a first that's all about her and celebrating her achievements as a new mum. A woman's first Mother's Day is one of the most special days for any new mother.
You can help to make it even more special for her by getting her a well-thought out gift. As new mums are busy and tired, they will love any one of these relaxing, luxe and pampering gifts.
Top tips for picking a Mother's Day gift
When you become a mum, your whole lifestyle changes. For the first few years there is a whole lot less sleep, comfort and me-time. And although she's happy to sacrifice all that for her kids, that doesn't mean she wouldn't love a bit more time to herself. So, here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a Mother's Day gift.
She doesn't get time to pamper herself: Mum's rarely get time to pamper themselves like they used to, so a gift that will give her the ability to wind down and relax will be a real winner. Things like manicure, facial or massage vouchers are a great idea.
Things she likes but wouldn't buy for herself: Now that your lady has a new perspective on life, there are few things she will no longer justify buying for herself. Luxury beauty products, expensive homewares, designer shoes or sparkly jewellery are all things that she'll love but will no longer buy just because. If you want to really treat her, this is the way to go.
The gift of time: Mums are always lacking in time. If you're still not sure what to get, offering to look after the baby on a Saturday night so she can go out with her girlfriends is one of the best gifts she'll get.
