Practical yet so very cute looking, Nappy Cakes are literally full of disposable nappies. They are bound together to form the shape of a cake, and they normally have a soft toy for decoration.There are several different suppliers in Sydney, with the following being 2 of our favourites:
This business provides Mummas with a little help when they need it most. A package can consist of a spare set of hands to help a Mum get through her "to do" list, a few laundry runs, a weeks worth of nightly meals and more. Check out their website for a full list of what they do:
Imagine receiving flowers every single week! The team behind the delightful Petite Posy Shoppe will do just that for the new Mumma. You can choose to have a delivery sent once a week, once a fortnight or once a month.
This uber cool northern beaches based jewellery company, makes beautiful stamped necklaces and bangles, perfect for the new Mum. You can have the bubs name stamped on a piece of jewellery and then if more bubs come along, additional rings can be added to the necklace. Or you can give another bangle, stamped with the new baby's name.
This is perfect for the new Mum who may not have much family support around her. Buy a voucher for a 1 off session or even more, so that Mumma can have some me time or even can catch up on some much needed sleep! There are heaps of different babysitting/nanny services in Sydney. Examples are:
Kid Magazine is an online magazine run by one very stylish, yet down to earth Sydney Mumma. The subscription is very reasonable (around $20). The magazine covers articles on all things to do with being a Mum. So it's perfect for new Mums - they can feed their bubba, and read the magazine at the same time on their phone, tablet or laptop.
As we all know, our bodies go through enormous strain during prenancy and birth. So a gentle massage, by a caring professional can do wonders to help the body (and soul) recover.Try these Sydney based therapists:
It's very difficult to have the energy to keep your house clean when you have a new bub, so a voucher for a few weeks (or even months) from a local cleaning business is a brilliant idea, and one that will no doubt be gratefully received!
Forget the manicure, it's almost impossible to have nice looking fingernails when you changing nappies and washing out bottles all day long! So buy a voucher for a pedicure for the new Mum, as she can always take the bub along if she has to, and wear them in a baby carrier.
