Here’s a wrap-up of the best – and most useful – presents around.

The gorgeously packaged gift boxes come with gold tea scoops, tea filters and beautiful tea tins. Plus All boxes can be shipped straight to their door. Your toughest decision will be choosing the tea flavour!

The gold scoop though!

A Mother’s Group in a book 

Written by one of our favourite Instagram mums, Marcia Leon, her book shares expert and anecdotal advice and includes excerpts from other inspirational mamas, including Jaime King, Teresa Palmer, Megan Gale and Tammin Sursok, Not So Mumsy will help you navigate pregnancy, your first year and beyond with style, humour and confidence

The book’s tagline is “Yes you are a mum, but you’re still you!” and these words are what every mum and mum-to-be needs to hear.

The gift of sleep with a high-tech bassinet

Whether it’s days, weeks or months until your newborn arrives, we guarantee one thing that will be at the top of mama’s wish list and that is sleep! .

The SNOO is a high tech bassinet that automatically calms crying (often in less than a minute) and boosts sleep by one to two hours or more. Because it keeps babies sleeping safely on the back – preventing the risky rolling over associated with so many infant sleep deaths – SNOO is also the world’s safest baby bed.

Basically the bassinet is a 24/7 assistant to rock, shush and soothe bub while you fix a meal, take a shower, or get an extra bit of sleep. We dare you to name a mama you wouldn’t want this!

Comfy maternity clothing that is also breastfeeding friendly

Dressing an ever-expanding bump is fun until you run out of clothing options that fit. Stocking a new wardrobe is expensive and time consuming so a maternity wear item that doubles as a nursing piece will be warmly received.

The innovative Lily Terry-Lined Nursing Compression Cami from Mama Muse, features a fully supportive inner shelf bra, seamless terry fleece which absorbs moisture and conceals minor leakages, and stretch-mesh lining throughout the bodice offers light to medium compression to smooth the silhouette.

A cami that’s ideal for wearing with a bump and then with a bub.

A photo printer to capture and display your magic moments

If there is one certainty that comes with welcoming a newborn into the phone it’s that you will take A LOT of photos. Don’t let them sit on your camera roll when you can easily turn your favorite moments from your smartphone into gorgeous photo creations.

The HP Sprocket Studio printer, $199 is designed to use with Bluetooth and the HP Sprocket app. With the press of a button you can print photos direct from your camera roll or social media.

Can’t stop scrolling through those adorable baby photos? The solution is to print your pics off with this clever little device, the HP Sprocket Studio.

An inspirational book

Sometimes finding the right words or gift for mum that properly expresses your love and gratitude can be difficult. Thankfully, author Marianne Vicelich has done it for you, with her latest book, Mother

The beautiful book delves into what motherhood means, entwined with 100 quotes and affirmations that will pull at your heart strings, captivate you and make you laugh with memories, all at the same time.

 

Marianne was prompted to write this book due to the recent passing of both her muum and sister to cancer.

The classic fave: A box of chocolates

A mum of two young boys and a renowned Australian illustrator, Sarah Hankinson has designed a gorgeous limited edition choccie box.

“For as long as I can remember, sharing a pack of Cadbury Roses with my family was such a treat,” says Sarah.

“Rummaging through the box and choosing your favourite flavour – opening the shiny wrappers. It was a moment to cherish and bring everyone together. To this day, I still think the gift of a box of Roses is a special act of love.”

The limited-edition box of Cadbury Roses are available in leading supermarkets and department stores across Australia.

A fluffy, snuggly gown

A gorgeous robe is one item that will be on high-rotation for a new mum. Mamas will pop it in on at the hospital and will quickly get used to wearing it round-the-clock as they feed bub.

This animal print Best & Less Hooded Gown is adorable and best of all it’s emblazoned with the words, MUMMA on the back.

A wardrobe staple for a new mum? The trusty gown.

Feeding-friendly activewear

There are so many benefits to maintaining an exercise regime during pregnancy. Building up core strength gets your body ready for the exertions of childbirth, and improving suppleness helps alleviate the accompanying discomfort of backache, joint strain and pelvic loosening.

While there are so many reasons to move, sometimes the only thing we lack, besides motivation, is the right active wear.

Cadenshae’s Breastfeeding Bra provides the ultimate comfort to breastfeed with confidence, anywhere, anytime.

A nursing sports bra is a genius idea.

The ultimate lunch and snack bag

There are your normal kind of cooler bags and there are Fridge to Go cooler bags.

These clever cooler bags are easy to use, just remove the panel from the zipped pocket and place this (or the whole bag if you prefer) in the freezer overnight. Replace the panel when you want to use it, fill and go. Be sure to keep the bag zipped close when possible and the cooling inside will last up to 8 hours.

The Fridge To Go Medium Lunch Bag, $40.95 is perfect for carrying an array of snacks – very handy for mums!

A baby bib that is stylish and saves cleaning

When it’s time to introduce solids, mums will dream of a bib that catches spills and crumbs and makes clean-up easier. Introducing the Snuggle Bib from Snuggle Hunny Kids. These bibs are waterproof, so are simple to wipe down.

The frills help catch the spills. A bib designed to make mealtimes less messy.

A mug for mumma!

Life with a newborn is pretty special. One thing, that’s not so special is the sleepless nights and exhausting days.

You’ll no doubt need all the coffee and when bub’s snoozing, you drink it in style with this Marks and Spencer Fabulous Mum china mug, $13.

The gorgeous design features colourful painted flowers and foliage, with the slogan “Fabulous Mum”. This mug is both microwaveable and dishwasher-safe.

Coffee, tea… whatever your vice, this mug will be your saviour through those early days with a newborn.

Whether it’s a Mother’s Day gift or an early push present, we’re pretty confident most mamas would be over the moon with a piece from The Poet Fine Jewellery

Sarah Davies launched her jewellery business in late 2019, saying:

“I’m not the type of person you’ll find ‘dripping’ in jewellery, but I do have a curated collection of pieces which I absolutely adore and wear for years. Our pieces are intentionally minimal, designed for layering and made with premium quality materials so you can wear them and love them, every day for years to come.”

 

Each Poet jewellery piece is ethically made by hand using the best quality materials.
