It’s exciting being a new mom. Being a new mom on Valentine’s Day is even more exciting. Valentine’s Day is not a simple celebration of couplehood, it’s a celebration of love. What love could be greater than a mother’s? This Valentine’s Day let your friend, partner, relative or colleague who has become a mom feel exceptionally appreciated with a unique gift. A new mom would need a Valentine’s Day gift better than a box of cheap chocolates. Here are several great ideas to start with:
Bouquet of flowers
It’s simple, but sends a strong message of love and appreciation. Even the most cynical of mothers will not be able to resist the charms of a lovely bouquet of flowers received unexpectedly. Make her day a lot brighter with a colorful bouquet of roses, tulips or carnations. You can go over the top and send a bouquet with baby gift sets.
Now that she has a baby, your giftee probably doesn’t have any time to treat herself to any delicious homemade snacks. Between diaper changes, breastfeeding schedules and getting much needed sleep, who will have time to bake cookies anyway? So this is a great chance to let her enjoy something made at home from scratch, like a delicious batch of homemade brownies. She will absolutely appreciate a gesture like that.
Accessories for the bundle of joy
New moms always put their little bundles of joy before them. So why not get something for the baby, which is just like getting something for her. She won’t appreciate a gift for her center of the universe any less. Your giftee will probably have cargo loads full of diapers and baby clothes. Instead of getting the same usual gifts, try something different with a baby accessory. Consider getting a cute little mini-tie or a headband for a baby. The days, such accessories come in amazing designs emphasizing both safety and fashion.
Everyone knows that the greatest peril of new motherhood is the lack of sleep. So this Valentine’s Day, maybe all she really need is a good eight hours of uninterrupted sleep.
While you may not be able to gift sleep, you can gift something that will make sleeping easier, such as a comfy and stylish sleeping mask.
A romantic dinner in the living room
New moms almost never get any time to go out, much less for romantic dinners. The baby always comes first. However, for this Valentine’s Day, instead of taking the new mom out for a fancy romantic dinner, you can try bringing the fancy dinner to her. The candles and the first-rate cuisine can be arranged at the giftee’s own home, so she doesn’t have to leave the baby behind and keep worrying about the bundle of joy throughout the courses. Alternatively, arrange the dinner at a friend’s home, to where she can easily bring the baby and be at ease. This will be a much needed break for both mom and baby.
The above are only few suggestions. Feel free to add to or alter the suggestion as you wish, so the new mom you are gifting to will never forget this Valentine’s Day.
