Ways to Treat New Mums

Ways to Treat New Mums

Know a new mumma that needs to be treated?
Imogen Jeffries

Your sister or best friend has just brought a little piece of joy into this world and you're looking for a meaningful gift to give to her and the newborn

As it goes, the new Mum has probably prepped and organised for the new addition to the family, and with the help of family members and good friends, has everything she already needs to make the first year comfortable and memorable.

If you're feeling lost with what to buy the special new Mum and the family, you can choose from one of our gentle, low-key experiences that she can do with the baby, husband and friends.

But to add a little bit of flavour to the gift, we've rounded up some our favourite local boutique products in cities across Australia, so that you can add something ideal for the baby while you whisk your BFF and new Mum away for an enjoyable, much-deserved experience.

1.High Tea Cruise | Brisbane

The Brisbane River High Tea Cruise is a 2-hour journey with live entertainment along the river in an iconic timber paddle wheeler. The ladies can enjoy the simple and chic tradition of high tea - which includes mini cupcakes, fresh strawberry tartlets, scones, petit fours, caramel slices and triple chocolate brownie slices. The tea and champagne will both be flowing.

The perfect gift for a sophisticated new mum. She can bring along the latest addition to the family and enjoy some time socialising with friends, too.

For the baby...

Give the new mum something just as classic - a mobile. In the evening, the new Mum can put her baby to sleep under the beautifully crafted light mobile fixtures from Bokkie Kids located in the Kenmore Village shopping centre just outside of Brisbane. Pick a light mobile made up of fairies, elephants, spacemen, butterflies, and cars.

3.Illawarra Fly Treetop Walk | Sydney

If the new mum is interested in getting some exercise, fresh air, all the while spending time with the baby, she can do that with the gentle walking experience on the Illawarra Fly Treetop Walk.

It's the perfect day out for the children to experience the glory of some of the most untouched areas of the country.
