What are good Christmas presents for new Mums?

Whether you’re looking for gifts for expectant mums or gifts for first time mums, think about gifts that might make her life easier.

When I’m thinking of what to buy new mums I know, I go back to the early months of being a new mum myself.

I consider the gifts that didn’t really work or help me – and those products I couldn’t do without.

5 Amazing Christmas Gift Ideas for Mum

1. A Beautiful Newborn Baby Carrier

A fab idea for parents to be gifts is something that has worked well for you, when you were a new parent.

We adored our BabyBjorn Baby Carrier and they recently brought out the Baby Carrier Mini.

Baby carriers are lovely gift ideas for new mums and dads because they can make their life so much easier and give them even more opportunities to be close to their bub.

BabyBjorn Baby Carrier Mini Greige Mesh - Love from Mim

The gorgeous Mini Carrier is super easy to get on and off by yourself and is perfect for teeny newborn babies.

It also has the advantage of being able to open up the whole front section to lift out your baby. This makes transferring a baby from carrier to cot so much easier.

BabyBjorn Baby Carrier Mini Greige Mesh

This carrier is for a baby’s first months with a minimum weight of baby of 3.2kgs and a maximum of 11kgs.

It’s also ideal for when wearing a baby for short periods of time – like going for a walk.

The BabyBjorn range has awesome baby gifts for first time parents such as carriers, travel cots, high chairs and more.

You can buy a BabyBjorn Baby Carrier Mini online here or:

I’ve always been fond of personalised gifts for mum and dad for any occasion. For mums, these can be a lovely way of commemorating the birth of their new bub, a milestone and sometimes even their name or birth date.

I recently discovered Smallprint and fell in love with their gorgeous range of personalised gifts for new parents or with children of all ages!

They include necklaces, bracelets, keyrings, cufflinks and more.

If you’re looking for unique or unusual gifts for new mums, I’ve picked out a couple of ideas that I love.

Smallprint Fingerprint Pendants

This Smallprint Fingerprint™ necklace has pendants on a sterling silver ball chain. What the child touches actually becomes the jewellery piece.

Imagine capturing the fingerprints of your children and wearing it around your neck, close to your heart. I think it’s a beautiful idea and would have loved something like this.

I think keepsake gifts are some of the best gifts for new mothers as they hold such special memories forever.

You can find out more about how to order this necklace here.

Another gorgeous gift idea from the Smallprint range is this Love Keyring, featuring double footprints!

Smallprint Double Footprints Love Keyring

I just love this idea and as well as a gift for a new parent, it would make the perfect gift for grandparents too.

When you order, Smallprint can send the new parent their mess-free Magic Inkless Print Kit so prints can be taken at home. The keyring is then engraved with the name and age of the baby.

In this post, I’m giving away one of these beautiful love Keyrings, plus ink kit worth $255. You can find out more about this keyring here.

3. Flo Baby Health Goodies

The best gifts for new mums and dads can be ones to keep their bub happy and healthy.

I discovered the Flo range when my youngest child was a baby and love how these preservative-free products are natural and gentle for the whole family.

I remember my babies getting their first colds and sniffles and you feel so helpless is trying to make them feel better.

Flo has us covered!

Flo Family Health Products

The Flo Baby Nasal Spray is a saline spray with advanced technology that helps to clear a baby‘s congested nose quickly and gently.

It’s easy to use in newborns and older babies because it can be sprayed at any angle – which helps if your little one is a wriggler!

Flo Baby Saline Spray

Always read the label. Use as directed. Consult your Healthcare Practitioner if symptoms persist.

Flo Baby Saline Nasal Spray - Love from Mim

Flo Baby Salines are available from pharmacies nationally as a spray or dropper. We’ve used them for years, as well as the sprays for Kids and Adults.

Find out more about Flo Baby Saline Spray here.

I recommend Flo products to all my mum friends – they’re my secret weapon all year round.

I’m giving away a gorgeous prize pack from Flo including a gorgeous soft elephant!

4. Modibodi Maternity Underwear and Post Partum Underwear

I love the idea of creating a new mum hamper with all of the things I would have wanted if I’d known about them!

I WISH I had know about Modibodi leak proof underwear when I was pregnant and after the birth of my babies. They literally have every kind of potential pant-leakage situation covered. Post partum bleeding, periods, sweat, incontinence, discharge – everything!

These are the kind of things that new mums can feel anxious about and I love that the Modibodi range helps out.

The range includes breathable, functional and pretty pants to suit every shape with patented Modifier Technology™ – a super slim (only 3mm) stain resistant lining for periods and bladder leaks, and Modifier Air Technology™ which is your go-to to keep your dry and cool with it’s a moisture-wicking, odour-fighting powers for getting sweaty.

Women wearing Modibodi Underwear

As well as undies, Modibodi has recently introduced a maternity range with nursing singlets (perfect for breastfeeding mums!) and maternity briefs.

Gift baskets for new parents can include all of the unusual or quirky products that made your life as a new mum easier. Or they can be new mum pampering gifts, such as the next one!

Buy the Modibodi range here.

5. Palm Beach Collection Candles

When I want to relax quickly, one of the easiest things to do it light a beautifully scented candle.

I adore the Palm Beach Collection range and have tried many. One of my all-time faves is the Watermelon one – yum!

This Christmas, they’ve released the Palm Beach Christmas Advent Calendar.

Palm Beach Collection Christmas Advent Calendar

It contains 12 x 50g soy candles including two new Christmas fragrances: Winter Pine and Summer Bellini.

Candles are my thing – I burn them most evenings to relax and I just don’t think you can have too many of them!

They make good presents for mums who don’t have much time to treat themselves – so perfect new mum present ideas.

You can find out more here and I’m giving a calendar away below!

Have my top picks for special gifts for mum this Christmas helped you choose?

There are so many traditional gift ideas for expecting mothers but sometimes, I worry that I’m buying something that she might already have or that someone else is getting her too.

You can over think these things though. Any new mum gift ideas you get would be so well received because isn’t celebrating motherhood and new babies just a lovely thing to do?

Buying Christmas gifts for new parents will depend on how old the baby is – or if the baby has even made their appearance. So I’ve tried to include mum to be gift ideas and some ideas for you to create a new mum gift hamper.

That way you can choose some of these ideas for what suits your friend, and add some more of your own.

Do you have any good ideas for mum to be presents?

    Don’t. … Now don’t get me wrong, they are the best things that will ever happen to you, but unless you have a supportive husband then make sure you stop at two…

    / 6:56 pm

    Follow your gut! Don’t follow those “textbooks”, don’t follow other’s experiences to the T, follow what you feel and what you know and use the guidance as that.. guidance only.

  3. Emily
    / 2:55 pm

  8. Sally
    / 10:48 pm

    I may have a better idea how to answer this in two weeks when my little one arrives but I guess for now it is “no plan is a good plan”.

  9. Maggie Karner
    / 10:33 pm

    Mums know best so always listen to your mother.

  10. Veta Lazaridis
    / 9:07 pm

    Enjoy me time before children, once your a mother it’s less time for yourself. More responsibility, a different time to share with your precious child.

  11. Jen
    / 7:46 pm

    Don’t be afraid to ask for help; it’s the hardest things you’ll ever do but it’s so worth it!

  12. Nicolle
    / 11:38 am

    Don’t let the expectations rule how I try to do things allow myself the chance to live it through before giving up.

  13. Cail
    / 12:19 pm

    I’d tell my 30yr old self to not worry, not to stress, not to become consumed in your emotions, that you will eventually conceive and whilst it may not be from
    natural conception, it will be the most amazing gift from God.

  14. Courtney Corrie
    / 11:29 am

    Your children enable you to relive your childhood (good and bad) and accept help from parents as they’ve already done what you’re about to.

  18. Renee Stewart
    / 6:21 pm

    You can do this your strong to get through anything you put your mind to. Plus you’ll gain the sleep back

  19. Ali
    / 5:34 pm

    I would say “you will never feel love like the love you feel for your baby”. Its amazing and the best kind :)

  20. / 5:31 pm

    I would tell myself to trust my instincts as a mother and to smile and nod politely when being given parenting advice :)

  21. Alicia Sims
    / 2:15 pm

    There’ll always be someone to disagree
    Or offer some “advice” (“for free!”)
    Pick your battles and smile politely,
    Remember to let it go… and BREATHE

  22. Kelly
    / 10:30 am

    Dont forget that in order to look after baby, you must look after yourself!

  23. Gillian

  26. Rhiannon Jakobasch
    / 12:05 pm

    To relax and enjoy it more. Don’t beat myself up about my body or the housework – to just be present with the kids and enjoy cuddles and laughter. The time goes way too fast.

  27. Shari Holtham
    / 7:50 am

    That noone can prepare you for how hard it will truly be. But also noone can prepare you for the unconditional, mind blowing love you will experience too.

  28. Kim Wiese
    / 11:52 pm

    I would say, None of us really know what we are doing. Just enjoy as much as you can. Surround yourself with other helpful support. Cry. Laugh. Live. Love.

  29. / 7:39 pm

    I would say to myself ” Dont be afraid to fall inlove and be hurt because a perfect man will come in your life who will love you so dearly and will give you family, a son named Ethan and a place called home. :)

  30. sarah
    / 6:47 pm

    I would tell myself times will be tough the hardest I’ve ever experienced but I will get through this and I will have amazing son.

  31. Deborah
    / 4:40 pm

    For every 10 moments that make you cry for help there will be 1 that will make you cry with joy and forget the rest.

  32. Taegen Le Brocq
    / 4:11 pm

    I would go back to say that not letting mess or clutter be your breaking point. Breathe and accept kids are messy.

  33. Elise Ellabban
    / 12:59 pm

    Your prize pack is delightful! I love the detail and thought you’ve put into it!

    I’d go back and tell teenage me that I can do this. That I will raise an amazing human being, and that It’s OK to filter through all the contradicting advice and find the stuff that “fits”. That there is more than one right way to parent, making a decision will be the right one because I made it.

  34. Jess
    / 11:21 am

    I would say …. it’s ok not to be ok. There are times when you need to let yourself be down.

  35. tracy wedding
    / 6:41 am

    dont sweat the small stuff pick your battles

  36. Sarah T
    / 12:40 am

    I would tell myself that you may think you don’t have enough hours in the day now, but just wait!

  37. Rebekah
    / 9:51 pm

    Sleep-in now! I just had my first opportunity for a sleep-in in 11.5 months as my son stayed with his Nonna. I was so looking forward to it but my body woke me at the normal 5.30am wake-up time and that was it! At least I could drink my coffee in sweet silence ?

  38. Sarah Pieresko
    / 7:02 pm

    Our first is baking in the oven. From all the comments above I’ve realised that nothing will compare to the love we will have for our little Bub. The next 20 weeks we plan on sleeping in, dating, preparing, getting organised and ready for the arrival.

  39. Roxanne McNaught
    / 6:32 pm

    They grow up so quicky! Enjoy every cuddle, kiss and snuggle in bed – you never when it will be the last one.

    Hold baby close to your heart as much as you like;
    take as many photos & videos as your heart delights;
    everyone will have a say in how you should bring up bubba;
    be confident in your parenting, you got this Mumma xx

  43. Emily
    / 7:55 am

    Shush! You are not tired! You may think you are but just wait until you have kids! But they are worth every second!

  44. Merc
    / 6:23 am

    As a mumma of a 6 day old, I would tell my pre baby self, don’t sweat the small stuff, make sure you tell and show your loved ones how valuable they are no matter how much laundry needs to be done and look forward to meeting your little one who fills your heart with love and joy.

  45. / 11:47 pm

    Looking back, there’s a few things I’d go back and tell myself.

    1. Keep your camera ready and take more photos, and then write on the back of them.
    2. Keep a daily journal. It doesn’t have to be elaborate, but record things that happened. When you look back, even the mundane things will give you a smile.

    These might seem not that important now, but trust me, when you’re kids are grown, you’ll wish you could capture those moments all over again and these ‘things to do’ brings it all back.

  46. Louise
    / 11:45 pm

    ‘She will always, eventually get to sleep’.

  47. Amy
    / 10:39 pm

    The housework can wait, they grow tooo fast!! Also to enjoy the sleep ins while you can ?

  48. Jodie
    / 9:45 pm

    I’d tell myself that when my bub grows up he won’t remember if the floor is vacuumed or yhe dishes are clean, he’ll remember my love.

  49. Jennifer Harrison
    / 9:25 pm

    Work can wait – babies are only babies for what seems minute s.

  50. Floss
    / 8:02 pm

    Don’t stress, enjoy the journey, you will learn on the job! And always allow an extra half hour to be on time!

  51. Danni
    / 7:47 pm

    As an expecting ftm.
    If i could go back pre preggo belly and tell my self

  60. Ashleigh Scott
    / 8:03 pm

    Having babies won’t be what it seems, it’ll be more than you’ve ever dreamed. Give them love & care like a seed, they’ll grow like little weeds!

  61. Sally Baker
    / 5:41 pm

    Live a little first. Take that holiday, tick off a few things on that bucket list. Kids are timely and time travels fast!

    Listen to your heart, it has all of the answers. And sleep as much as you can now- you may never get to again!

  66. Dani
    / 1:18 pm

    The washing, cooking and cleaning can wait. Baby will only be little for a while enjoy the cuddles

  67. Karina Lee
    / 1:14 pm

    Appreciate the simple things in life as a person with no kids – things like peeing in peace, drinking HOT coffee, eating whatever you want and not having to share it (spag bol again, can’t I order spicy thai instead?) and not having to listen to the Wiggles on repeat!

  68. Starr
    / 1:12 pm

    I haven’t become a mum yet, but I will be trying to live by that no-one is perfect and we can only be the best mums we can be.

  69. Samara McRae
    / 12:51 pm

    Make sure you have a really strong foundation and relationship with your hubby/partner beforehand as even the strongest partnerships will be tested. Also learn to take deep breaths and have a lot of patience

  70. Stephanie Allen
    / 12:49 pm

    I would say –
    Dont sweat the small stuff, spoil them rotten, because its not spoiling at all and enjoy the play time and cuddles.

  71. Karen Edwards
    / 12:48 pm

    Enjoy every minute!! before you know it your first born is off to high school and your last baby is one

  73. Bonnie Smith
    / 7:44 am

    Enjoy being pregnant. It’s comparitivelt easy, and you will miss you bump once it’s gone! However having this baby will be the scariest most incredibly magical thing you will ever do, and you will experience live like nothing you’ve ever experienced before!

  74. joanne Carter
    / 11:33 pm

    Enjoy the little things, time flies too fast. You’ve got this, you’re babe needs you in the moment, be with them.

  77. Nerissa
    / 4:05 pm

    You think you’re tired? You have no idea what tired is!

  78. Alice Ingram

    Your new job is to care for your new baby, don’t stress about the state of the house. Never fear asking for help

  79. Corina
    / 11:58 am

    I would tell my self….

  80. Liz
    / 10:39 am

  81. Sarah Phillips
    / 11:21 pm

    I wouldn’t tell myself anything as nothing can truly prepare you and every journey is different. Bub will teach you everything, lol.

  82. Anna
    / 11:04 pm

    Savour every moment! “This too shall pass”- all too quickly!

  83. Cassandra
    / 9:03 pm

  84. Aleisha
    / 4:04 pm

    Not all of the advice you’ve been given works for every baby! Use your own instincts to figure out what works for you and the baby.

  85. Michelle Winderlich
    / 3:58 pm

    Learn to appreciate the small happy moments, not all moments have to be huge to be appreciated.

  87. Becky player
    / 2:58 pm

    every baby/ child is different. One persons way of doing things may not necessarily work for you or your baby.

  88. Nyssa
    / 12:31 pm

    You won’t turn into your own mum, it doesn’t have to be inevitable, don’t stress.

    What no one else told me: you *will* cope and you will love being a Mum!

    Being a MOTHER is a work in process, but the most rewarding. Embrace it and enjoy every memory and moment.

    Don’t be so petty! Once you’re a mother, all the little things you used to worry about mean nothing anymore!

  99. Bec Jane
    / 11:22 pm

    Nothing can prepare yourself becoming a MOTHER is truly the best feeling so take it all in your stride and enjoy it.

  100. Nikki

    That I am good enough to be a fabulous mumma and that my bubby would ground me, teach me and totally and utterly complete me.

    Learn to do everything with 1 hand and twice as quickly before Bub comes along for practice.

    I would tell myself to get ready for an intense, beautiful love I have never felt before and finish renovating the bathroom before bubs arrives!

    No amount of planning, reading or researching will prepare you so be willing to just take it as it comes.

    Understand that your home will be a mess, most, if not all of the time, and that’s completely ok. Take care of you and your new family.

    Read the books and do your google searches, but in the end, do what feel right for you and your bub.

    Dont take naps and free time forgranted. Although you lose those things you gain so much when bub arrives.

    I would say “You will lose your sleep, sanity, hair and control.. But, you will find the purest love that is beyond all”

      I would say “cuddle and kiss them whilst i can.” Time is fleeting and our lil people look up to us love and care beyond the mess,the stress and the rest.

      Once you have children your body no longer belongs to you and remember that times will be tough, but the rewards are definitely worth it!
