Gift Ideas for a Friend Who has Just had a Baby

Bringing a new baby into the world can be a beautiful experience. As a friend of a new mother, you may witness this exciting and life-defining moment and be moved. You may also see the new stresses that your friend is under as she adapts to motherhood. These pressures are very real.

To properly celebrate your friend and her new bub, and to show your support during what is a stressful (even though amazing) time, you may wish to buy your friend a gift as a token of friendship and support. The question is, what to get? What does a new mother want and need?

In this article from The Sweet Box, we’ll explore a few gift ideas for new mothers.

Baby clothes

You can’t go wrong with baby clothes. Body suits or onesies are a favoured item of clothing for babies, because they’re one piece and your friend’s baby can’t wriggle out of them! As your friend’s baby grows, the size will constantly change, so your friend will appreciate having a new set of clothes on hand, which will save her from making a trip to the shops. Also, as we all know, babies can be messy eaters and it’s not uncommon for them to be sick. Having more clothes to choose from means that your friend will be able to dress the baby, even when there’s a pile of clothes already in the wash.

Baby socks

The thought of a baby having cold tootsies is unbearable! We’d all rather rest easy in the knowledge that your friend’s baby has toasty feet. Something about tiny socks on a young baby’s wriggling feet is too cute to resist, and it’ll sure be a pleasure for your friend to put these new, clean socks onto her young one.

Something for mum

With all the attention suddenly on the baby, it can be easy for the new mum to forget to take care of herself. As her friend, you can play an important role in reminding her that she is still important and that her comfort matters. In fact, if she is happy, it will be easier for her to be the committed, loving mother she wants to be! A truly dependable item for mum is baby-themed baby shower cookies. You can find these on stores like The Sweet Box, in shapes like prams, bombonieres, onesies and even personalised cookies with the baby’s name. Items like body lotion, body wash, and other toiletries can also be suitable.

By combining multiple gifts into one, you can really spoil your friend. And why not? She truly deserves it, and it is a special moment that occurs once and once only for many mothers. By making the most of this small window with a well presented gift hampers Sydney, we can deepen friendships and help our friends to savour and grow into their new role as a mother.
