A handy (and definitive) list of gifts for the brand-new mam in your group

Forget baby gifts; this is all for the new mama.

MOST OF US have picked out a baby gift or two in our time.

However, the older you get and the more little people that are introduced to your friend group, you realise that while baby gifts are all well and good, there’s something even more special about new-mam gifts.

Christ knows they’ve been through the mill over the last nine months, so take inspiration from some of the loveliest gifts we’ve come across.

Here are our top picks.

1. Organic Letterbox Spa Giftset (€20.88 + PP)

Handmade, indulgent and a perfect way to celebrate your friend’s amazing new role.

Each letterbox spa giftset – so called because the package fits through your standard letterbox – contains a solid moisturising lotion bar, mineral bath salt infusion, hand made soap, hand poured scented candle and a bath madeleine.

Giftwrapping and a personal message is available.

2. Mum and Baby Personalised Robes (€52.50 +PP)

Yes, this is as ridiculously charming as it looks.

After choosing the colour and size of the two robes, you can opt to personalise them by having initials added to the mama version and a full name placed on the baby version.

3. Memories for my…  book (€13.92 +PP)

Choose the son or daughter version of this gift, and let Carriegraphy do the rest.

The item is handmade, hardbacked, wirebound and contains 40 blank black pages for your friend’s memories.

4. Mum Life: A Snarky Adult Colouring Book  (£5.99 +PP)

The title says it all, really.

Oh, and the pages include ‘Congratulations on Your New Vajayjay’, ‘Tub Poop Happens’ and ‘Coffee Versus Sleep’.

5. Milestone moment wine labels (€14.06 +PP)

OK, so alcohol isn’t generally the first thing you gift a new mam, but it’s not like it’s not going to be appreciated at some stage in the future.

FYI: these labels can be personalised as well!

6. Mama Bear Jumper (€23.20 + PP)
