It doesn’t need to be Mother’s Day to buy mums a present, but if she’s a first-time mum then she definitely deserves a special Mother’s Day celebration… So for such an occasion, we’ve gathered a few fantastic ideas of our best 1st Mother’s Day gifts to turn this maternal milestone into a truly memorable day. From thoughtful personalised gifts to supportive memento’s to help her through her journey as a first time mum, see our best ideas below.
A Keyring with Her & Her New Baby
If she loses her keys often, or even if she doesn’t, why not get her a customised keyring with a beautifully cute photo of her and her newborn baby. A perfect memento that she can carry around with her, and only £3.99!
Token Cards for Her Wellbeing and Self-Empowerment
Research shows that anywhere between 50 percent and 75 percent of new mums experience some sort of negative feelings after giving birth.
Postpartum depression can appear up to a year after the baby is born, so don’t dismiss the possibility if you’re six months in and just start to feel the mental pains of it all. A nice little gift idea could be our self-empowering warrior cards and affirmation cards to help them find some inner confidence.
World Best Mum Mugs
Make her feel confident every day about the incredible job she is doing and cheer her up with a world’s best mum mug. You can add her name or photo so she has her very own personalised best mum mug.
A Cute Photo Cushion
Select her cutest photo and have it printed on one of our Mother’s Day cushion designs. It could be a photo of your wife holding the baby for the first time, or when they exchanged their first smile, or a funny memory to make her laugh! Perfect for her bed, the sofa or the nursery.
An Experience Gift to Treat Herself
Offer her a pampering day, an enjoyable afternoon tea, or a weekend away to have some time for herself, reconnect with her body, recharge her batteries, or take time to do the things that she used to do before the baby. It’s important to hand the baby over to a parent or a friend sometimes and take a little time to connect with “pre-baby you”.
Cath Kidston Happy Journals
Because a lot of things do change for new mothers, and some of the simplest differences are also the most intimate ones. Why not get her a thoughtful little book of health and happiness, or a positivity journal for her to express herself and keep track of what she’s experiencing as a new mum, and focus on the happy moments?
Use Her Favourite Photos to Make a Canvas
For all the adorable photos you’ve taken since having a newborn, make her a statement piece of art to hang in the baby’s nursery, or the hallway.
You can make a photo collage, choose black and white photos, or use our online editor to add contrast or colour to make it a unique art piece that will match with your home’s style.
Browse our range of canvas prints templates, and simply personalise it with a lovely message, date, or quote to add the finishing touches.
Make a Sweet Coaster Set
Did you take a brilliant photo of your partner or daughter the other day – one she is yet to discover? Make the most of it and turn it into a coaster by uploading the photo and playing around with our filters to add your own creative touch. Perfect to surprise her at breakfast and put a smile on her face for her very first Mother’s Day. You can also create a funny set of six and upload all the different funny smiling faces of your baby.
Tasty and Quirky Chocolates
Who doesn’t like chocolates? Send her a quirky looking chocolate set to wish her a happy first Mother’s Day with our Choc on Choc spoof chocolates. Discover our range to find ideas such as a chocolate Best Mum hamper, our Oscar statue, afternoon tea, pizza, or prosecco and strawberries.
