One of my friends is due next week! I've got one baby outfit but want to create a hamper of nice bits for her, as I know most people will be buying gifts for baby.

What did you most appreciate as gifts postpartum?

My babies 9 weeks old and I had loads of lovely clothes and gifts bought but the things I appreciated most were the most practical things such as nappies and big boxes of baby wipes (iv not had to buy any yet so it’s saved me a lot of money). Milton sterilising wipes they steralise soothers for when little one chucks it across the room and then cries for it back straight away. An insert for a baby bath I think it was from Amazon - amazing because it helps prob baby up when I’m bathing him. Clevamama car seat sleeping bag thing keeps him so snug and I don’t have to worry about blankets falling off or covering his face whilst driving. Hope this helps.

I usually buy something for the mother herself. Some nice toiletries , a bottle of booze and a box of chocolates. There are lots of gift sets on sale at the moment.

Maybe some comfy loose PJ's and socks? Bath products, chocolates!

If mum plans to breastfeed some button front pjs are a nice idea

Posh chocolates and nice shower gel were my favourite things. I also think a Insulated cup, magazines, one handed healthy snacks are nice gifts for a new mum.
