What do you gift a new mum? On one hand, you want to give her something practical, functional and that’s going to help her adjust to her new role as mum. On the other hand, you want to give her something that encourages her to treat herself – whether that’s indulging in a pamper session or some retail therapy. Which option do you go for? Let mum decide with a One4all Gift Card. She can spoil herself to some new beauty and skincare products or cosy pyjamas that promote rest, relaxation and self-care. Or, if she prefers, she can spend it on baby and mum essentials like a carrier, monitor and other life-simplifying gadgets.
New mums often find themselves sleeping in weird positions as they cuddle and nap with their baby, so their neck and shoulders need some TLC and a neck massager is the perfect gadget to give it to them.

Good quality leggings
New mums want clothes that are supportive, comfortable and non-restrictive, allowing mums to do their everyday tasks at ease. A pair of good quality leggings is a must.

New mums will spend a lot of time on their feet, running around after their toddlers. A pair of supportive shoes that are comfortable, waterproof and super-easy to clean will be her footwear hero.

Daily skincare and makeup take a backseat in the world of a new mum but a few drops of a serum will keep her skin healthy and glowing.

For days when mum does have time to put on some makeup, it’s best she reaches for something that delivers maximum coverage while also being rich in essential minerals and SPF.

A large tote bag
Taking a trip with a baby means bringing a lot of bits and bobs – even if it’s just to the supermarket. Diapers, bottles, change of clothes, cloths and more. Mums will want the right bag to carry all these essentials and bonus points for one that is super functional but looks stylish.
