Mothers Day 2015 – gifts for new mums



Congratulations new mummies, the day you have been waiting for is just around the corner. To make sure it lives up to all your expectations and more, we have a fantastic gift guide that your significant other just might need to see. Scroll down to see what takes your fancy then share it with your partner.

We can all appreciate practicality on this side of motherhood and Mammahood has created a range of comfortable and flattering breastfeeding singlets (above) that new mums will really appreciate. The seamless tops double as compression garments to help your postpartum recovery and provide support for the back and core.


Nappy bags are a new mum essential, but they can sometimes be too big for quick trips to the park or the shop. That’s when you need the Elari Nappy Wallet. Only a quarter of the size of a regular nappy bag, it can fit all the nappy changing essentials and is perfect for throwing under the pram or for when you’re toting baby in a sling or carrier.

Ergobaby 4 position 360 bundle of joy

Speaking of carriers, the Ergobaby Four Position 360 carrier is something every new mum should have, especially when paired with a newborn insert so that you can use it right from those very early days. Whether to keep an unsettled baby close around the house, or for sweet snuggles on the go, the carrier makes a rather useful Mother’s Day gift.


It may not feel like it now, but in a few years it will be difficult to remember all the intimate details of those early days and weeks with a new baby. A gift like this Time Capsule from Sweet Creations is a great way to make sure you capture the memories and special keepsakes for years to come.


Speaking of capturing special moments, is your phone getting a workout trying to take the perfect photo of the new love of your life? Mum The Photographer can help you hone your photography skills so you never miss an opportunity and always find just the right angle for a keeper.

Bambino Bling unique gift guide

Teething jewellery isn’t a new concept anymore but every year the options get that much more exciting. Bambino Bling creates silicone jewellery for mums in gorgeous bright colours and styles that can actually go in the dishwasher to be cleaned!

Aden and Anais skincare

It may be a little hard to find time out for a trip to the day spa in these early stages of motherhood, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be pampered at home. Aden and Anais’ range of skincare products are gentle enough for baby but sophisticated enough for you. It is all natural, smells divine and won’t irritate baby’s sensitive skin when you lather up.


When you are the one up for hours every night, it is only fair that you are comfortable and supported in the process. Plead your case for a Hobbe rocking chair, they are simply stunning to look at and even better to sit in.


If you are feeling a little bit lost when it comes to fashion for this new season of life, it may be worth your while to consult a professional. The Wardrobe Edit is a personal style session that will set new mums up to look fabulous and feel confident even when working a maternity bra with a few extra lumps and bumps.


Hot accessories are key to feeling dressed up and put together even when you’re sleep deprived and overwhelmed. This ombre animal scarf is right on trend this season and perfect for hiding leaky breastmilk stains, baby vomit and you can even use it to shield baby when feeding in public if you like. Find it at Witchery for $49.95.

Klean Kanteen_1

As you are probably beginning to realise, a hot cup of tea or coffee is quickly becoming a thing of your past. It doesn’t have to be with a Klean Kanteen Wide Mouth Insulated Travel Mug. This smart mug will keep your brew hot for up to six hours. And the cafe-style sip lid means no fretting about accidentally spilling a hot drink on baby. Shop Naturally stocks these clever travel mugs for $39.95.

Now here’s an indulgent treat to round out our top picks for new mums; a cheese and wine hamper. Designed especially with a new mum in mind, The Nursery is a selection of all the finest soft cheeses and wine that you couldn’t enjoy whilst pregnant. Select a hamper from Farmgate Cheese for $165.

Kate Thompson

Kate Thompson

Just back from maternity leave, Kate Thompson is resigned to a house overrun by boys (3 kids, dog and husband). Existing in a phase she affectionately coins ‘monotonous chaos’, this stay-at-home-mum revels in moonlighting as a writer and feeling like a grown up every once in a while. A background in teaching and psychology, she entered parenthood confident she was up for the challenge, but now eats humble pie on a daily basis.
