Meaningful Mother's Day gift ideas for a fab first-time mum

By Sophie Carter - 10th February 2023

Model Holding Personalised Double Heart Charm Necklace in Silver and Rose Gold

Becoming a mother is undoubtedly a momentous occasion. From the first experience of seeing that sweet, angelic face, to watching them grow day-by-day into a unique little person, a new mum never forgets just how magical motherhood is. 


Like all life's significant challenges, however, this wondrous journey can also be turbulent, and Mother's Day is the perfect time to remind first-time mothers just how spectacular they are. From meaningful mementoes to be treasured for time, to personal pick-me-ups she'll be oh-so grateful for, we've put together some failsafe options to gift the new mum a little dose of joy to that amazing mama celebrating her first Mother's Day.

Gorgeous jewellery gifts a new mum will adore

Jewellery often makes a great foolproof gift option, and gifting an item a new mummy can wear close to her heart is invaluable. Our Personalised Double Heart Charm Necklace is perfect for including her bundle of joy in her everyday style and thus commends her awesome achievement as a new mother. Choose to personalise any way you think she'll love by adding a name or names to each charm for a sweet accessory she can treasure.

Must-have homeware gifts first-time mums will thank you for

For much of the first year of motherhood, many new mothers will spend a lot of time at home with their baby, so homeware gifts for mum will always be welcomed. Candles make a fabulous gift for elevating her space and helping her to unwind. You can even personalise some of our candles to include her name or new title of 'mama' or 'mummy', to make this pretty piece even more unique to her. If she's a lover of flowers but doesn't have the time or energy to arrange fresh florals or keep a plant thriving, dried flowers are a fantastic fuss-free alternative to bring a touch of nature and a splash of colour to her home.

Thoughtful pamper presents to give a new mum a boost

Most new mamas will be exhausted, sleep-deprived, and crying out for a relaxing spa treatment. However, it can be a little tricky for a new mum to venture out to a spa, so why not bring the experience to her? A personal pamper kit like our Restful Night Gift Set is packed full of uplifting products to help calm her environment and prepare her for the rest of the journey ahead. The range includes a silky satin eye mask for a more peaceful slumber, as well as a pulse point roller ball perfume, a room spray, and Himalayan bath salts, all of which are infused with heavenly essential oils to create an oasis of calm in the comfort of her home.

Meaningful mementos for new mothers to treasure

The newborn days are famously fleeting and although the overall experience will be treasured forever, little milestones can easily be forgotten. Most new mothers like to document their baby's achievements, and our Personalised Script Name Fabric Notebook in Pink is the perfect way to do so. Personalise this gorgeous linen notebook to suit the recipient, by choosing the front cover wording. The inside pages are blank, allowing mum to fill them up with her own photographs, musings and memories, encapsulating those magical moments to look back on in years to come.

The perfect first-time mum gift can come in many different forms, depending on that mother's likes, wants, and - more crucially - needs! It's essential to tailor your gift to the recipient and ensure she feels nothing but joy the moment she rips off the paper. Sometimes little things can go a long way and simple pleasures such as a scrumptious bar of chocolate can be just the pick-me-up she needs. If you're struggling to choose between several super ideas, why not create a special 'new mum' hamper bursting with some of her favourite things?

However you choose to make her day, it's vital that she feels celebrated, appreciated, and - above all else - adored. She's already achieved so many incredible things, and she's just at the very beginning of her journey.
