Mama to Bee | October 1, 2018
Becoming a mother is one of the most rewarding experiences in the world. But, it can also be stressful as you seek to provide baby with everything he or she needs to grow and flourish. Baby showers are a tradition for many. They give friends and family the opportunity to help mom out with everything baby will need. Yet, it’s important to remember that the baby shower is also celebrating the new mom as well.
Gifting the mama-to-bee something thoughtful and only for her makes her feel special during this big milestone in her life.
We love to gift our mama bee products for the rest and relaxation she will need postpartum. The Mama and Me Spa Gift Set is the baby shower gift that takes care of Mama and baby! It’s filled with gender neutral baby essentials and self-care products for Mom. You’ll make her feel like the queen bee with this set. Set includes a luxuriously soft robe and washcloths for baby, along with some relaxing spa products for Mama.
Another unique gift that moms need, but might not think to ask for, is a quality nursing bra. . It will provide her with a comfortable fit that she can wear under her clothes at home, or under her work outfit. It’s ideal for any working mom or the mom who is always on the go. She’ll want to be comfortable when she returns home also. That’s why a set of luxurious pajamas or slippers are exactly what she needs. Especially if they’re easy to slip on at the end of a long day.
Give her a gift that will be long treasured. A gift certificate for a newborn photo session is perfect. It will allow her to always look back on the special first moments in her newborn’s life. There are also services that offer in-hospital sessions that capture the special moments. It will be meaningful for the hours after birth or for babies who may have an extended hospital stay.
Giving the gift of free time is something that will never go unappreciated. A few unique ideas that offer a helping hand are cleaning services, meal services, and child care. These will mean more to her than you could even imagine. You can step in and do this yourself, or you can hire a professional. Either way, it will not matter as either will be of great value to her. There is also the option of a postpartum doula who comes in and helps mama transition into life with a newborn. They can assist with whatever she may need whether that’s help around the house or a support system to rely on.
If you’re the creative gifting type, make her a post-labor survival basket. These fun DIY gift baskets give you the opportunity to personalize the gift from you to her. This could focus on getting her through the hospital stay or for the return home. Include items that you know she already loves and appreciates. They will remind her that she is still herself even as she adds on to her identity by becoming a mother.
