10 of the Best Gifts for New Mums in 2023

(Written by the amazing One Fine Baby Team)

We get it… buying teeny-tiny 0000 denim overalls and snuggly bunny onesies is oh-so cute, but what about the special mum-to-be in your life? Doesn’t she deserve a beautiful gift, too?

Whether it’s a baby shower or the first visit in hospital, babies receive their fair share of gifts. And to be honest, newborns need a lot of stuff.

But, don’t forget about Mumma Bear too. From self-care luxe items to the practical things that make life easier, buying a gift for a new mum – that she will actually use – helps her feel loved and supported, even from afar.

To help share the love, we’ve wrapped up 10 of the best gifts for new mums.

So what are the main things to consider when choosing a gift for new mums?

1.  Franjos Kitchen x Bumpnbub Motherhood Hydration Powder, $55.95

Motherhood is thirsty work, which is why new mums and mum’s-to-be need a healthy dose of electrolytes to hydrate their hardworking body.

What makes Franjos Kitchen x Bumpnbub Motherhood Hydration Powder different?

Developed by experts including a naturopath and a midwife,  Franjos Kitchen x Bumpnbub Motherhood Hydration Powder is a 100% natural, low-calorie way to hydrate without caffeine or artificial flavours. It’s also gluten free, plant-based and Australian made. 

Available in two delicious flavours (Mixed Berry and Blood Orange), this hydration powder is packed with plant-based ingredients, such as coconut water powder, for the ultimate absorption. Basically, it’s an easy and refreshing way to boost your water intake. And, because it’s naturally sweet with delicious fruit, it’s easy to drink and tastes great!

Why gift  Franjos x Bumpnbub Kitchen Motherhood Hydration Powder?

A lot of mums struggle to drink water during pregnancy due to nausea and all-day sickness. It can also be difficult to get enough fluids during labour, and hydration is incredibly important for breastfeeding, the postpartum period and kid wrangling, making Franjos Kitchen x Bumpnbub Motherhood Hydration Powder the perfect gift for mums at all stages of their motherhood journey. 

Plus, keeping hydrated helps you feel more energetic with better brain function, better digestion and plumper skin. Isn’t that what we all want?!

We also love:

BodyICE Woman Woman Postpartum Ice Packs, because they are designed to help mothers ease their discomfort from childbirth and throughout breastfeeding. The range includes breast ice packs which are great for soothing breast engorgement, mastitis and pain and inflammation after breast surgery.
