If your daughter has just given birth, you probably want to get her a gift to congratulate her on the birth, but might be a little stuck for ideas. If your daughter seems to already have everything that she needs for the baby, it’s normal to feel a little stuck for gift ideas.
However, there is no need to worry, as there are lots of gifts that you could give to the new mummy that she will absolutely love. You might be stuck for gift ideas, but there is no need to panic, as I am about to share with you lots of fantastic ideas that all new mums will love.
Homemade patchwork quilt for the baby’s crib
If you have the time to make your daughter something, a handmade patchwork quilt is an ideal gift. Although creating a patchwork quilt will probably take a few weeks, it will be worth the time and effort once it’s done. A patchwork quilt is a gift that can be kept forever, so it is ideal for any new mum, including your daughter.
To make it a little more personal, if you have any of your daughter’s old baby blankets, why not cut them up into squares and use them as part of the quilt? Adding a personal touch like that, will make your daughter love the quilt that you make, even more.
Baby toy from when she was a child for the new baby
If you still have some of your daughter’s old baby toys, doing up one of these and then giving it to her would be the perfect gift. Presents that have a meaning behind that are always much more appreciated than presents that have no significance.
So if you have something that was your daughter’s as a baby or toddler, it would make an ideal gift. Giving your daughter something that was hers for her baby - your grandchild, is such a beautiful idea.
There is nothing cuter than a personalised gift for a new mummy. Things like baby blankets and baby towels with the baby’s name and birth weight on make a fantastic gift for any new mum.
If you are a dab hand at sewing, you could always buy a baby blanket or towel and attempt to sew the baby’s name and weight onto it yourself.
