With the birth of a child, many women’s’ lives take on a whole new dimension. In addition to caring for a new baby, many women return to the work force and the other stresses of daily life still exist. With the birth of a child, the family may be showered with gifts for the new baby and while each and every gift is loved and treasured, a new mom also needs to feel loved and treasured. What better way to show her that she is still important, loved and cherished than to select her a new mother gift.
Each new mother is different, but what they all have in common is a lack of sleep, lack of time, a desire to bond with their new baby and the need to be seen as themselves and not just someone’s mother.
While it is fun to shop for baby clothes and toys, a very special present for a new mom is something that will pamper her, offer her a luxurious experience and bring a sense of calm and relaxation. It could be a simple basket filled with chocolate, coffee, teas and other yummy and dreamy snacks. The perfect afternoon pick me up or after dinner treat. A selection of scented candles, to boost her mood or offer her a chance to wind down at the end of the day. A selection of bath and body products, so that she can indulge in a relaxing soak in a tub full of bubbles, might be just the thing.
While any or all of these gifts are pure indulgence, what is even more important, is offering to help her carve out a bit of time to actually enjoy them. The perfect addition would be a coupon she could redeem for some babysitting, an offer to hold the baby, while she takes a relaxing bath and a nap one afternoon. A gift certificate for a cleaning service, which allow her some free time – during the baby’s naptime, a time she might have normally devoted to cleaning can now be freed up so that she can indulge at bit.
Regardless of the exact gift, the heartfelt gesture and the offer of some time to indulge herself, will make any new mom feel truly loved and appreciated.
