Pamper her on the transition from bump to birth with our guide to the practical (yet luxurious) gifts that new mums will love to receive.
The perfect gifts for expectant mums fall somewhere between the luxurious and the practical. As crucial as nappies, changing mats, and car seats may be, there’s something to be said for indulgent gifts, too – perfect to give her a little respite in the long, tiring months before (and just after!) the birth. For baby, only the best will do, so treat them to our blissfully soft sleepsuits, outfits, and gorgeously strokable toys to make those precious early months truly special.
Just for her
Comfort is key when choosing gifts for expectant mums, so look for touchable, indulgent fabrics, such as cashmere, faux-fur and velour. If you’re unsure of sizing, opt for accessories – snuggly soft faux-fur slippers are a luxury excuse to rest weary feet, while our beautiful dip-dye cashmere scarf will always fit perfectly.
For a thoughtful gift she’d never purchase herself, try a support pillow. Pregnancy can bring a host of sleeping issues, from overheating to restless legs, but a few perfectly placed pillows can make all the difference. Our Luxury Down Support Pillow boasts supportive feather chambers and soft-down clusters – ideal for back sleepers, if a bump makes it tricky for them to sleep on their side.
Baby gifts she’ll treasure
Designed to be treasured for years to come, our gorgeous baby gifts are the perfect blend of luxury and practicality. Whether you walk into a The Little White Company store or browse online, you’ll be utterly spoilt for choice. With a soothing (and unisex) colour palette, our newborn gift sets are the perfect choice for ready-made luxury, while our super-soft muslin cloths and hooded towels can’t be beaten when it comes to easy-care essentials.
For a truly heirloom-worthy gift, you can’t go wrong with literature. The tales of Peter Rabbit have captured the imaginations of generations of children; presented in a beautifully illustrated gift box, this complete set of books makes a timelessly charming addition to any nursery bookcase.
