With the arrival of a little one, Valentine’s Day may look slightly different this year than it has done in years past. But just because you’ve welcomed a new addition to your family doesn’t mean you have to abandon all of your plans for a romantic day or evening! Check out our top 6 Valentine’s Day presents perfect for new mums.
1. Wine tasting
Chances are you and your partner haven’t had a chance to spend time alone in quite some time. Instead of scheduling in a standard date night at a place you always go, why not mix things up and book a wine tasting? While it’s wonderful to be together and talk about your little one all night, scheduling a wine tasting is a great way for you and your partner to connect about something other than your baby. You may even learn a thing or two!
While all new parents know that the majority of conversations revolve around how much you love your child (who can blame you!), it can sometimes be nice to do something new that celebrates just the two of you. This is a great way to connect and bond after the arrival of a baby and helps you find something new to talk about that isn’t centred around sleep schedules and weaning. Even better, there are lots of wine tours and tastings that take place during the day so you don’t have to worry about sourcing an overnight babysitter!
2. Couple’s massage
As new parents, your sleep schedule may be less than ideal. Between caring for a little one and juggling life’s many other commitments, both of your bodies could probably use some TLC - and what better way to bond together than with a side-by-side couple’s massage?
Gifting a new mum a couple’s massage is a great way to spend time together without overwhelming her with something she just doesn’t feel up to. You both get to relax and unwind in each other’s presence without being pressured to make conversation. Sometimes, simply being with your partner is more than enough.
3. First edition of her all-time favourite book
If your partner loves to read, why not get creative and gift her the first edition of her favourite book? First-edition books are not only thoughtful but make for unique and fun gifts that show your loved one just how well you know her. This is a creative gift that will melt any book lover’s heart!
4. Matching mum’s sets
Your partner is probably getting familiar with her new body after giving birth. Instead of buying her something uncomfortable that she won’t feel confident in, why not give her the gift of a matching mum’s pyjama set? They’re comfortable, adorable and make for the sweetest of pictures!
Available in a wide variety of colours and prints, our bamboo pyjama sets aren’t just fun - they’re comfortable too! With buttery soft fabric, these cosy pyjamas are the perfect gift for helping both mum and baby have a good night’s sleep.
5. Dinner at home
While it can be fun to get out and about on Valentine’s Day, sometimes parting with your little one just isn’t an option. So why not make a romantic dinner at home? Set the scene with candles, music and anything else that helps transform this everyday dinner into something special. Encourage her to dress up like she normally would for an evening out and make her one of her favourite meals.
6. That thing she’s been lusting after
If you can’t figure out what to get your partner for Valentine’s Day, think back to things they’ve spoken about. Maybe the new mum in your life has been lusting after a killer pair of boots or a new lens for her camera. Chances are she’s mentioned something she really wants but refuses to purchase herself. Show her you’ve been listening and surprise her with that one item she’s been dreaming about.
