What do you give someone who has just received the most precious bundle ever? From personalised pressies for newborns to unique and useful items for mama, here are some awesome gift ideas that new mums will actually use and appreciate!

If you have a friend or a loved one who is expecting, it can be difficult to know what to give the new mama and baby, especially if they already have a lot of what they need. The key to excellent gift-giving is to find something that they haven’t already thought of, whether that’s something unique, a personalised gift, or just downright useful. It’s also a good idea to spoil the new mamas with something that’s just for her during this time of celebration – after all, she and bubs will be entwined for a while longer yet! We’ve rounded up some of the best gifts to give new mothers and babies that you can find or order right here in Hong Kong.

Gifts for new mums, Mummy Bee gift set

Postnatal Pampering Gifts For New Mums

Dealing with a newborn is hard and mums rarely get time to look after themselves. As their bodies adjust to not being pregnant anymore, there are periods of hair loss, chapped lips, hands (and nipples!) and dark circles that come with the lack of sleep. The postnatal aches and pains that also arise can leave mama feeling less than relaxed. Enter a gift that will help new mamas feel a little bit more like their old selves.

  • Haircare: Korean brand, Yeanimm Cosmetics, can help to at least keep up the appearance of luxurious pre-baby hair with its shading cushion. It covers greys and gives the appearance of fuller, thicker hair thanks to soybean and soybean milk protein fibres.
  • Luscious lotions and potions: Put together a Mummy Bee set from Not Another Bunch Of Flowers (pictured above) that includes lip balm, soap, hand cream and scented candles, all free from any nasties, with a personalised message.
  • R&R: Treat them to a postnatal massage, facial or a trip to the hair salon for some serious battery recharging.
  • Snuggle in style: A new pair of pyjamas or a night robe can make mama feel a little more glam. One Sassy Mama ordered this Gisele robe when she had her second baby and wore it well after the baby was no longer a newborn. Malabar Baby also has a great selection of robes and loungewearGifting these prior to the birth is a nice idea, so mama can wear them in the hospital as well rather than the not-so-fetching hospital gowns!

Wubbanub Lion gift for newborn in Hong Kong

Useful Baby Gifts: Loveys And Plush Toys

The baby in question is going to spend years with this one – hugging, holding and sucking on it. Make sure it’s made with the best and most natural material available. The Wubbanub Baby Pacifier is a soft and cuddly toy that the baby will love and the mum will love you for gifting it! Our favourite is the giraffe, but the tiger and hippo ones are equally cute.

Another great option is the Kaloo Les Amis Doudou Pacifier Holder. It’s perfect for bedtimes, stroller time, or quiet snuggle time.
