Let's be honest, being a new mother is no easy task. It's a 24 hours a day, 7 days a week gig that new mama's have got going on, and with all those sleepless nights, around-the-clock feedings, and making everything else work on top of that - moms really are the unsung superheros.
With Mother's Day just around the corner here in the UK - it's the perfect opportunity to spend time with family, relax, maybe snag some breakfast in bed, and hopefully (cue the hints and elbow nudges) receive a well-deserved and thoughtful gift. Since you're little one can't yet thank you for all the hard work you do - we've got a few ways to make sure you feel appreciated and adored.
In the spirit of gratitude and saying thanks to all of our UK mums this Mother's Day, we've comipled our 5 favorite gifts that any new mum deserves.
p.s. Fee free to pass this list along (hint, hint, nudge, nudge) or treat yourself this Mother's Day!
5 Gorgeous Gifts that New Mums Deserve
1. A Mother & Baby Handprint
Some of the best gifts are ones that money can't buy, and the Mother & Baby handprint is certainly one of them. This simple piece of art is very quick to make and can bring happy memories for years to come. Follow these full instructions on how to make the perfect handprints.
2. An Engraved Necklace
A necklace engraved with mum and baby's initials may be an old school idea but it's definitely a classic and sure to please. We love this simple selection from Notonthehighstreet.com - which is a great place to look around and find personalisable options perfect fit for the new mum in your life.
3. A Must-Have Massage
There is truly nothing better to help recharge a tired body and mind than a soothing massage. We think this Mother's Day is the perfect time to replenish your energy stores and restore your body's rhythm. Of course a day at the spa is luxurious, but for new mums with a busy schedule, check out Urban Massage - they'll send a qualified massage therapist right to her front door for a professional, and incredibly conveneint, in-home massage.

4. A Wardrobe Refresh
For mums ready to transition out of flowy and not-so-form-fitting maternity wear, a wardrobe refresh is the perfect gift. Encourage the mum in your life to treat herself to some new threads that will freshen up her closet by giving her a gift card to her favorite clothing store. For some failsafe options - go for ASOS or NET-A-PORTER so she can pick and choose from the brands she loves most.
5. An Indulgent Food Hamper
There were so many delicious goodies on that 'foods best avoided' list during pregnancy, and if you're breastfeeding you're likely following a similar healthy eating schedule - but that doesn't mean you can't indulge every now and then! What better way is there to spend your Mother's Day Sunday than with this delectable Brunch Basket from Fortnum & Mason. Tea, jams, chocolate truffles and a touch of champagne? Don't mind if we do.
