When it comes to new mums, often the baby's father will buy his partner a gift on behalf of their young baby/toddler(s) and will need some inspiration.
Whether the pressie buyer is on a budget looking for a bargain Christmas gift, or at the other end of the scale treating the lovely mummy to a luxury present, or somewhere in between: look no further.
As tired new mummies ourselves, here are some Mummy gifts that we would be very happy to receive on Xmas Day 2014!! We are in serious need of pampering

£19.95 from John Lewis www.johnlewis.com
If a Mum has a toddler or young child, then a Gro-clock is a great Mother’s xmas present, because it means she may actually get a lie in! The idea is that kids stay in bed until they see the sun on the clock face. This clock uses fun images of the stars and sun to communicate when to go back to sleep and when it's time to get up. The perfect antidote for tired mummies trying to get a toddler into a routine.
See my daughter below playing with hers and loving it, as well as the special story book that comes with it.

Neals Yard Rose and Pomegranate Bath Oil
£14.75 for 100ml from www.nealsyardremedies.com
Perfect for tired mums, this new product from Neals Yard is sweetly scented, luxurious oil blend is carefully combined to restore a peaceful balance to mind and body. This is a replenishing and balancing formula. It contains damask rose, patchouli leaf, cedarwood and bergamot pure aromatherapy essences with a skin-softening, omega-rich base of organic pomegranate and apricot oils.
Lightly scented, with a softening calming rose scent yet a slightly fruity uplifting hit to it, this is just perfect for a tired mummy who wants to treat herself to one of the few daily luxuries she has time for: a hot silky bath. The oil is softening so you hardly need to moisturise afterwards: a time-saving bonus for mummies!
It is also certified organic, cruelty-free and suitable for vegans like me (CB). Yay! Neals Yard are a great ethical brand who believe that health and beauty should be more natural and less synthetic, and better for our planet.
