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.
For my ideas for great gifts for new parents here, I’ve tried to include some mum to be gifts and gifts for expecting parents. Even though the baby is not here yet, it’s still a lovely time to celebrate their impending arrival.
Here are my top picks for the best presents for new mums this Christmas. Plus, you have the chance to win all of these beautiful gift ideas for new parents yourself!

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

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?

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