It can be hard thinking of gifts for new mums that won’t cost the earth, literally so here’s a few suggestions to get you started:
1. Make your own baby blanket
You could completely personalize your gift and give something you have made yourself to be kept and treasured for many years to come. If you’re new to knitting or crochet a baby blanket is a simple pattern to start with and will result in a beautiful gift straight from the heart which is sure to be appreciated.

2. Pamper gift set
It’s always nice to be pampered, particularly when you’ve just had a baby and may not be feeling like you have much time to yourself anymore. This gift set is eco-friendly and includes lush vegan products such as Himalayan pink bath salts infused with rose petals and lavender oil and even a bar of chocolate, bliss.
3. Pre-loved baby clothes
Babies and children grow so quickly in their first few years that many of the clothes they receive are never worn or barely worn. Visit a reputable pre-loved clothing site such as www.sharetheloveni.com for a fantastic range of clothing for ages newborn to 5 years old and get a beautiful bundle of baby clothes for a fraction of the price of buying new.
4. Bake some treats
New babies can be exhausting, who wouldn’t welcome a sweet, sugary treat to boost energy levels and keep them powering through the non-stop feeds and nappy changes? Dust off the apron and whip up a batch of gooey brownies or light cupcakes to bring a smile to any new mum’s face.
5. Your time
The first few weeks and months can be pretty tiring for new mums, it can be hard to get anything done while looking after a newborn and lacking in sleep. Offer an hour or two of your time to let weary parents take a much-needed nap, nip out to the shops or even get a bit of pampering to make them feel like themselves again.
