This blog has been a sponsored collaboration with Nurofen for Children but all thoughts and opinions are our own.
Being the first of my friends to have babies, I have become the go-to gal when asking for gifts ideas for baby showers and baby birthdays amongst my friends. Some might say as I’m the Yoda of gifts for new mums. With two little ones of my own I have a mighty good list of practical and purposeful items every mama is going to need.
So, I thought I would share my wisdom with you all and put together a little guide of gift ideas for new mamas that I promise they are going to thank you for!! And even better they are all under $150!!
An online shopping order
It doesn’t matter how much preparation you do before the baby comes. You will be held up in that house like it’s World War III outside and the thought of making that epic trek to the supermarket for all those forgotten critical supplies will seem so daunting. Save a mama’s bacon by gifting her an online shopping order that’s delivered to her house!
A voucher for a cleaner
When you have a baby, the last thing on your mind is cleaning the house. But with the barrage of visitors you can feel overwhelming pressure to trying and keep it all up, all while try and keep this tiny new human and yourself alive. A voucher for a cleaner is a much welcome (and practical) gift.
White cloth nappies
Sounds weird I know, but the 20 pack of terry towel nappies is going to be your new best friend. If someone hasn’t told you yet babies spew – a lot!! And you want to have these bad boys stashed all over your house for all impeding projectile vomits.
Trust me your mama friend will thank you for this simple but practical gift!
A Temperature Monitor
It is almost a guarantee that the first time your bubba gets sick it will be in the middle of the night when you are least prepared. Giving a parent the opportunity to feel in control of their child’s temperature is possibly the best gift you can give them. The Nurofen for Children FeverSmart Temperature Monitor is an easy to use device that goes under your baby’s arm and gives you real time updates of their temperature when they have a fever. A super thoughtful and practical gift for any mum.

A new set of Pyjamas
As any new mum would know you spend a lot of time up in the middle of the night feeding. Hey sometimes you don’t even make it out of your pj’s the entire day! Your pj’s and dressing gown will become your new best friend, so you might as well have a nice comfy set. And while a lot of people will be buying cute outfits and toys for the baby, you will absolutely make a mammas day with this one!
A Netflix subscription
Because the only thing on offer on free-to-air tv for those multiple middle of the night feeds is carving knife and ab buster commercials. I’d much rather be watching Orange is the New Black.
Trust me this one will get you epic brownie points!
