by Ruby Barry |

Sometimes, mothers who have a newborn are forgotten on Mother's Day because their child isn't old enough to buy them a gift. Whilst the days of their child bringing them home a macaroni pasta "Happy Mother's Day" card are a little way away, it doesn't mean new mums shouldn't be celebrated on this important day.

If your partner/friend/co-worker has just given birth, why not surprise them with a Mother's Day gift for new mums? They are sure to remember the gesture for years to come, whether the present is practical, or just a nice treat for a probably very tired mummy.

Struggling to think of ideas? It's tough to think of a good present for a new mum because there's so much to choose from. That's why we've compiled this list of the best gifts to get new mums on Mother's Day 2022, by talking to new mums themselves and getting their opinions.

What else can I do to help a new mum?

As well as a physical gift, this Mother's Day, why not also help a new mum out with your physical presence to lend a hand? Chatting with new mum Elisha Somal, part of the UK's Mama Club (a TikTok account for non-judgemental mums to gather for jokes, advice and a sense of community), she emphasised that "the best thing is to help, to be honest. For example, if you're able to come around and change the beds or do the washing up, or even hold the baby while I shower". Offering favours like this to a new mum is something she'll remember forever, and be eternally grateful for.
