Whether you’ve spent the year in lockdown, home-schooling kids or you’ve simply been living in the chaotic Mum world of post-pandemic 2021, you’re probably wondering where on earth the year has gone?! With less than 6 weeks until Christmas, we’re gathering up our favourite finds for the season to help keep last-minute gifting stress to a minimum!
Here are some of our most coveted items for Christmas – perfect to gift to any new-mum, mum-to-be or add to your very own wish-list (you’ve earned it)!
Read on for our top 10 most-loved gift ideas for this festive season…
1. The Nappy Society Ultimate Mum Bundle
If you’re looking for big-ticket gifts or wish list items, our very own Ultimate Mum Bundle tops the charts (we’re only a little bit biased!). Our newest and most popular bundle is also known as the “everything” bundle – it includes our signature Original Baby Bag Insert, Luxe Nylon Tote, Stroller Clips, Pram Caddy, Wet Wipes Pouch and Luxe Baby Change Mat. Basically, everything you need to get started (while staying stylish and organised) as a new Mum (you’ll also save over $70 as opposed to buying these pieces separately).
2. Cusshi Lounger
I bought this lounger/bed nest for my second baby Raffaella and honestly, don’t know how I managed without it with my first baby, Alessia!? When you find an item you can’t live without, it goes to the top of the must-have, Mamma recommendations list! There are many amazing bed nests on the market, but we love this one from Cusshi.
3. Malo Baby Nappy Rash Bundle Set
For luxurious, natural, Australian made baby skincare products, we can’t go past Malo Baby. Their latest bundle gift set includes 3 cult favourites – the Nappy Rash Spray, Nappy Crème and Wet/Dry Bag.
4. Liewood Augusta Hooded Towels & Wash Cloths
Perfect for wrapping up your baby straight after bath time, these beautiful Liewood Hooded Towels via The Memo will keep baby snug, warm and dry from head to toe. Made from the softest organic cotton and featuring cute animal faces and ears (choose from panda, rabbit or bear), these are essential and a super fun way to finish bath time (in case your baby wasn’t cute enough)! Equally adorable are the Liewood Animal Washcloths that double as hand puppets – now you can wash, entertain, and play all at once. Needless to say, we’re a little bit obsessed.
5. Personalised Knitted Blanket from Namely and Co
For a personalised, one-of-a-kind gift, you can’t go past Namely Co’s Baby & Child Name Blankets. Custom made with your baby/child's name in high quality yarns, these are the perfect gift to treasure for a lifetime. They’re super soft and snuggly – I couldn’t resist getting one for both of my baby girls.
6. Pram Caddy by TNS
If you’re looking for a practical gift that’s stylish, durable and uber useful, our Pram Caddy is wonderful option! Designed to be mamma’s little helper, our Pram Caddy provides a spacious, hands-free carryall for all the essentials you need right at your fingertips (literally). Crafted from coated cotton canvas; our Pram Caddy is durable, lightweight, and easy to clean! With plenty of space for both mamma and baby’s essentials, you’ll be wondering how you ever did mum-life without it.
7. Love Mae Baby Feeding Set
Love Mae’s Baby Feeding Set is the perfect gift for a new arrival, or beautiful baby feeding set for your little one. These sets have everything bub needs to start their food journey with solids including small bowl, cup, baby spoon and suction cap. These sets come beautifully boxed, perfect for gifting to friends or loved ones. We also love that they’re made from bamboo – natural, safe and durable!
8. Gorgeous outfits from Homegrown Kids
If you’re looking to add to the baby wardrobe or buy from a lovely, local company then Homegrown Kids is where you need to be shopping. Made from 100% beautiful Australian Cotton, these sets are soft, natural and oh so cute! If you’re after a practical pack for a mum-to-be, look no further than the Hospital Bag Gift Pack!
9. Glow Dreaming Bundle
Designed by leading sleep experts, Glow Dreaming claims to be the world’s most successful sleep aid! This little machine boasts a whopping 4-in-1 design including white noise, humidifier, LED light therapy and oil diffuser!
Before I had my second baby, I had heard so many mothers recommend Glow Dreaming and now I can see why; we love it!
10. Luxe Baby Change Mat by TNS
Our Luxe Baby Change Mat is one of the TNS products I never leave home without. We have one packed in the car for those just-in-case emergency changing situations as well as packed into our Baby Bag Inserts at all times. Not only is our Luxe Change Mat super practical, it looks just like a leather wallet or clutch, making it a subtle and chic accessory for any modern mum. It’s the perfect gift that your mum friends will be thanking you for.
