12 gift ideas for young mothers!

12 idées de cadeaux à offrir pour une jeune maman !

Choosing a gift for a new mother can be complicated. It's not always easy to know what will really please her, or simply what she needs during the delicate post-partum period. Are you looking for the perfect gift for a young mother in your life? To help you find it, we invite you to discover our best gift ideas selected by mothers! There's no need to rush off to Amazon to buy a necklace or bracelet, just a unique gift that's just like mom!

Buying a gift first and foremost to please

The main purpose of a gift is to please the recipient. So before making your choice from our selection, we advise you to think about the personality and tastes of the young mother you wish to spoil. The mother won't necessarily like jewelry or tastings in Michelin-starred restaurants.

If she's a family member or close friend, the task will be easy. On the other hand, if you don't know her very well, you'll have to do a little investigating, or opt for a gift she's sure to love!

Idea #1: A wellness gift

After 9 months of pregnancy and childbirth, a young mother needs to take care of herself and her body. Giving her a wellness gift is therefore a sure bet! You can put together a pretty box of beauty products yourself, or opt for a ready-made box.

Face creams, body moisturizers, scented bath products... you'll be spoilt for choice! Of course, choose natural, organic and breastfeeding-compatible products if necessary.

Idea #2: A super massage to pamper yourself

There's nothing like a super massage at home or at a beauty salon to pamper a new mother. Between sleepless nights, post-partum fatigue andbreastfeeding, a young mother doesn't necessarily think about giving herself time to decompress.

By buying her a gift voucher for a massage, you'll give her the opportunity to be pampered for a few hours. You can also opt for a special session for new mothers, such as the rebozo massage, a genuine pampering ritual that also gently closes the pelvis.

Idea #3: A sports class to relax: yoga or Pilates

From 6 to 8 weeks after the birth of their baby, young mothers usually undergo perineal re-education sessions. If the mother you'd like to give a gift to is quite sporty, book her in for a yoga or Pilates class.

These two sports are particularly recommended after pregnancy. They will enable the young mother to relax while strengthening her perineum and all the muscles of her body.

Idea #4: A nursing bra

The person you want to please is breastfeeding her baby? Think about buying her a pretty nursing bra to make breast-feeding easier! This accessory will be useful on a daily basis, even if she already has one. In fact, as milk leakage remains frequent in the first few months, the young mother will be delighted to be able to change her bra more often.

Idea #5: An appointment at an institute or hairdresser's

Are you more tempted by a beauty gift? Opt for an appointment at a salon or hairdresser. After giving birth, young mothers sometimes suffer from skin problems and very often lose their hair. These inconveniences result from the sudden drop in hormone levels in the body. Their skin can become very dry, while their hair is dull and thinning.

A moisturizing and invigorating facial at an institute or a hairdressing appointment will therefore be much appreciated by a young mother. There's nothing like beautiful skin and a nice haircut to boost self-confidence!

Idea #6: Post-partum menstrual panties

You may not have thought of it, but a pair of post-partum menstrual panties can be a great gift idea for a young mother. This original gift is ideal for lochia (bleeding after childbirth) and the return from childbirth (first period after baby's birth).

A mother who has just given birth cannot immediately resort to menstrual cups or tampons. What's more, prolonged use of thick sanitary towels can end up causing irritation. To make her feel good about her body, you can offer her our Louison cyclist ultra-absorbent cyclist or our Armande shorty specially designed for heavy flows!

Idea #7: A baby sling

If the young mother doesn't already own one, a babysling is a must-have gift. This accessory allows you to create a special bond with your child while keeping your hands free. Baby can sleep peacefully, while mom can go about her business.

A sling is also very useful for nursing mothers. It will help cradle the baby during feeding. It will also help to stimulate the mother's lactation by allowing her to carry her little one for long periods against her chest.

Idea #8: A photo session for mother and baby

A professional photo session can be a lovely gift to offer after the birth of a child. A mommy-and-baby shoot, either at home or in a studio, will enable the young mother to preserve precious memories of the first moments spent with her little one.

Make sure, however, that the young parents haven't already booked a session with a photographer. If they have, you can always save this gift idea for mom's birthday, when baby's grown up.

Idea #9: A birth diary

You can also opt for a birth journal, perfect for young moms who love scrapbooking. You'll be able to write your baby's story from birth, as well as decorate it with pretty photos and other mementos (maternity bracelet, lock of hair, etc.). Later on, this notebook will be an opportunity to reminisce about wonderful moments, and can be given to the child when he or she grows up.

Idea #10: A personalized gift with photos of the new family

If you have a little time, a personalized gift with photos of the new family is a special touch for the young mother.

There are two possibilities:

  1. Make it yourself, by buying a notebook to decorate with the most beautiful photographs, for example;
  2. Create it online on a dedicated website offering a variety of media(photo book, personalized mug, wall calendar, photo canvas, etc.).

Idea #11: A humorous book on motherhood or parenthood

To put a smile back on the face of a young mother who's just given birth, consider a humorous book on motherhood or parenthood! Forget long books with endless chapters. A young mother has very little time for herself. So give her a book that she can flip through quickly and that will make her laugh!

We recommend 100 tips and tricks for surviving the arrival of your first child. Conseils de parents récidivistes (K. Colburn, R. Sorensen) and the excellent comic strip Ma vie de maman (N. Cranemou, Tartuff, St. Lapuss').

Idea #12: Offer a little of your time to a young mother

Finally, offering a little of your time to a young mother is a gift that's sure to please. Offer to look after her baby for a few hours, so she can rest or take a walk. Cook her tasty dishes using fresh (and organic, if possible!) produce, so she can enjoy healthy, balanced meals. You can also relieve her stress by cleaning and tidying up her home.

What to give a new mother?

When it comes to choosing a gift for a new mom, it's essential to focus on presents that match her needs and personality. Instead of splurging on conventional items like jewelry or tastings at Michelin-starred restaurants, it's best to opt for gifts that promote her well-being and comfort after childbirth. Natural beauty products, a voucher for a relaxing massage session or a yoga class are all options that will enable the young mother to pamper herself and recharge her batteries.

What gift for a woman after childbirth?

After giving birth, a woman needs to take care of herself and regain her physical and emotional balance. So an ideal gift for a woman after childbirth would be a box of organic beauty products, a comfortable nursing bra or post-partum menstrual panties. These practical gifts, adapted to her needs at the time, will help her get through this period with greater serenity and well-being.

Don't forget that the most precious gesture you can offer is often your presence and support. Offer to help with daily chores or to look after the baby for a few hours, so that the young mother can rest and relax. By offering a thoughtful, personalized gift rather than a necklace on Amazon, you're showing the new mom all your affection and support at this important stage of her life!
