My motherhood section is probably the most diverse + something I really want to sink my teeth into. But I want to start with something light to show, that I will be writing about heavy, often polarising topics such as breastfeeding + co-sleeping and lighter topics like gift-giving + pregnancy symptoms.
So today I wanted to share some gift ideas for the modern mama.
The key is these 3 simple points: keep it personal, thoughtful but neutral. For example, I think vouchers are fantastic, however rather than a Myer voucher, maybe a Yummy Mummy Day Spa voucher.
•Think of your Mama, is she having a boy or a girl, does she already have children, what is her style (likes designer, carefree, neutral or bright pieces), does she love massages or would she love a date night with her partner - what does she talk about? Let your Mama know you know her and have taken the time to get her something she would like.
•If you know baby's name, initials or surname get something personal made. Instagram is flooded with beautiful personalised products, from dummy chains to leggings to blankets. Surname is always a good option because it is gender neutral and can be be handed down to other siblings, plus you can organise before baby arrives.
•Unless your Mama has specified something she particular wants for her nursery or house or to wear I would stay clear from these products, as they are usually expensive + she will feel she may have to display it. Unless you are confidant knowing her style or colours, go for things that are neutral (whites, greys, black, beiges) and things that she can decide when to use them (blankets, towels, dummy chains).
What we love•
Note for Mama's - I am all for the gift registry. I love to give someone something they want or need. Whether it is a baby shower or even when baby comes or even birthdays, I think we should break down the barriers + make registries ok. It isn't about how much you spend, it is about giving something thoughtful + personal (a registry gives you insight into that).
