No one deserves a pampering session quite like a new mum does, with self-care and personal TLC oftentimes falling on the back burner after birthday a little bub. If you're looking for the perfect gift for a new mum, we've got you covered. Read on for our list of the best pampering and practical gifts for new mums.

More of our Favourite Gift Ideas for New Mums
When it comes to finding the perfect gift for a new mum, we love to blend practicality with pampering- think gifts that the new mum might need, but might just default to purchasing at the supermarket in a moment of desperation, then look for a luxe, natural alternative!
New mums will love the NESSA Nipple SOS, which is a vegan, lanolin-free and seriously luxurious alternative to traditional nipple balms. This postpartum skin saviour is rich in beautiful tropical fruit oils, cocoa butter, mango butter, coconut oil and caster oil to help rejuvenate irritated, cracked and sensitive skin. Another favourite amongst the Nourished Life community is the Weleda Nipple Care Cream, which contains Aloe Vera, Marshmallow, Marigold, Calendula, Lavender, Echinacea, St Johns Wort and other soothing herbs in a base of Sweet Almond, Sesame and Olive Oil emulsion, along with extracts of Horsetail and Nettle, which are traditionally used to tone and condition the nipple.
Badger make some of our very favourite all-natural balms, with our favourite for new mums being the brand's Nursing Balm. Safe for mum and bub, this balm is rich in organic ingredients like Beeswax and Coconut oil, is travel friendly, and is both hypoallergenic and pediatrician tested.
A gift that both mum and bub will love is the Thankyou Mums & Bubs Massage Oil. Perfect for pregnant bellies, itchy skin, baby's delicate skin and really any area of the body that needs a little TLC, this luxe blend of Olive, Abyssian, Coconut, Avocado and Rosehip Oils plus Vitamin E will encourage mum to take a little bit of (seriously well deserved) time out. New mums will also appreciate the NESSA Scar Saviour, a vitamin infused silky balm that can be massaged into stretch marks, new or old scars, burns, irritated, inflamed skin and even after a C-section once the stitches have been removed.
A beautiful, organic tea always makes for a perfect gift for a new mum. Breastfeeding can be difficult, so gifting the new mum in your life a natural tea that supports the lactation process while calming the mind will no doubt be greatly appreciated. Our favourites are the Pukka Motherkind Baby Organic Tea, containing Shatavari, Fennel and Turmeric, all of which are traditionally used to help new mums who are breastfeeding, the Holle Bio Organic Nursing Tea, which includes Fennel, Caraway, Lemon Balm and Aniseed to help support lactation and calm indigestion and relieve bloating and flatulence, and the Weleda Nursing Tea, made with 100% organic herbs including Anise, Fennel, Caraway, Fenugreek and Lemon Verbena leaves- calming ingredients, perfect for tired mums.
