Step away from the baby shoes!

Dia Hollenbeck Minkow of New York based baby concierge service buddha & bodhi recommends practical presents for mums to be.

The Baby Bjorn – my daughters now play with it and carry their baby dolls in it – it’s the gift that keeps on giving.
Bouncer-Soft-BrownChestnut_tiny
The Baby Bjorn organic bouncer was an awesome “babysitter” when the girls were babies, I could cook etc. whilst they were entertaining themselves and “self bouncing” vs the battery operated ones out there.

Palmer’s cocoa butter for me and for the girls, we all still use the cocoa stick for boo boos to moisturizing.

muslinblankets
Aden + Anais organic muslin blankets that I would use for swaddling, over the shoulder for breastfeeding and to cover the stroller (they are super light weight) to block out the sun.

Mustela-Product-Collage
Mustela products during and after baths & sunblock – the smell wonderfully captures the new baby smell, which can’t be beat!

Amber teething necklaces, my girls love and still wear to this day.

Lavender eye pillow for me, I found it calming when I needed or could take a nap.

Barefoot Dreams – I hear from so many mothers that having a luxurious bathrobe and their own cuddly blanket is pure indulgence. The products at Barefoot Dreams fits this gift for mums to be perfectly.

 

Then, I must say the all -time best gifts for new mums don’t have a direct website, from much feedback they are as follows:
  • 1)  Someone, (a family member, friend, someone else’s babysitter) that will give mum some “me” time to actually get some proper rest.
  • 2)  A spa treatment – pedicure, facial etc. preferably at home.
  • 3)  An at-home massage, an at-home massage, an at-home massage.
  • 4)  Food delivery (there are many services) however, homemade & no fuss meals for mom delivered is a huge bonus.
  • 5)  The encouragement from loved ones to let her know they are there at the flip of a switch both emotionally & physically.
