Have friends or relatives who are currently pregnant? Here's a gift guide for both expectant mums and their newborns

Welcome your friends' and relatives' newborns with these delightful gift sets. These include plush toys, cute outfits and super soft blankets and swaddles. Pamper your mum friends with luxurious skincare, as well as a delightful afternoon tea.

 

 

Gift Hampers for Newborns

For newborns, a perfect gift set is this one from Raph & Remy that includes a teether, swaddles, blankets and changing mat clutch. .

 

Raph & Remy 7EssentialsSomethings Gift Set

First on the list is the Raph & Remy 7EssentialSomethings Gift Set ($390), all in neutral grey and white for both boys and girls. In this set is a teether, a Pond Pal mascot, bamboo swaddles, two blankets, a changing mat clutch, baby towel and mitt, a canvas tote bag and a gift card. First, the teether features high-quality, 100 per cent food grade, BPA-free silicone beads and untreated premium natural beechwood. This hard wood is durable, sustainable and also naturally antibacterial. Suitable for babies three months and up, they can gnaw away at both the beads and the beechwood rings.

Next, the Changing Mat Clutch unfolds into a travel changing mat that measures 50 by 70cm. Made of 100 per cent polyester and PVC on the outside and inside respectively, this clutch also has a PVC leather strap and attach-anywhere handle. This useful clutch also holds wipes and multiple diapers and fits in diaper bags or handbags. It’s easy to clean - just use a soft damp cloth and blot to remove water.

This gift set ($59.90) comprises a swaddle and luxurious sleep mask so newborns and their mums can get more sleep. The award-winning swaddle, made from a single layer of high-quality, specially woven cotton. It helps with temperature regulation, and allows babies to sleep in a natural position.

Ripe Avocado Jellycat Gift Set

The ideal gift for a baby shower, hospital visit or to welcome the baby home, the Ripe Avocado JellyCat Gift Set ($99) features a pair of Amuseable Avocado Muslins, a Jitter and a plush. The cotton muslins help with nursing, burping and super-quick cleanups, while the Jitter is soft in green stretchy fur, and jingles as you go.

OETEO Three-Piece Bundle Set

Using 100 per cent fine cotton, these fabrics are also OEKO-TEX® certified, meaning that the material is tested against harmful substances. Choose from one of four designs, such as the Starry Gaze Easyeo rompers ($48.90) in green and pink, which feature a three-time stretch elasticated waistband. Easily dress them by wearing through the tummy opening, followed by slotting in their legs. Otherwise, you can dress them through the stretchable lap shoulder collar. Other designs include the Starry Milky Way and Colourful Origami ($39.90) rompers. The sizes range from newborn to 18 months.

 

 

Baby Skincare

While the Baby Starter Kit is great for newborns, it can also be used for all family members, regardless of age.

Mums can try out various skincare products for their babies without having to buy the full-size products with these starter kits from leading brands

 

GAIA Baby Starter Kit

For example, the GAIA Baby Starter Kit ($31) features a baby bath and body wash, shampoo, moisturiser, sleeptime bath and massage oil. The shampoo, for instance, is pH neutral and mild, gentle on babies’ scalps, skin and eyes. With moisturising properties, the baby’s scalp never becomes dry or flaky. Moreover, this can be used for all family members, including newborns, babies and toddlers.

Meanwhile, the baby bath and body wash uses coconut-derived cleansing agents, with certified organic sweet orange pure essential oil and other softening organic oils to keep babies’ skin super soft. Additionally, the baby moisturiser works well for dry, flaky skin, and with a little water, can be used to massage babies. Other uses include a nappy change lotion, and a belly moisturiser during pregnancy.

Naif Baby Starter Kit

Another good option is the Naif Baby Starter Kit ($129), packed in a kraft paper gift box. Containing all the products for mums to use right after the birth of their babies, this includes the full-size Diaper Cream, Nurturing Cream, Milky Bath Oil, Soothing Baby Oil, Cleansing Wash Gel and Body Lotion. In particular, the diaper cream has Vitamin E and chamomile to help hydrate sensitive skin, while zinc oxide provides a soothing effect. Likewise the body lotion also uses natural cottonseed, sweet almond, avocado and macadamia oils, and chamomile to provide moisture for your baby’s skin.

Pigeon Newborn Pure Travel Set

Alternatively, try the Pigeon Newborn Travel Set ($12.90), that includes the Purifying Body Wash, Nourishing Shampoo, and the Moisturising Lotion. All these contain Natulayer that mimics the vernix, the baby’s natural coat of protection at birth, to both moisturise and protect the newborn’s delicate skin. Additionally, all are gentle enough to cleanse the little ones’ scalp and body, without any irritation.

Skin Inc Skincare

Give mums the gift of dewy, rejuvenated skin with Skin Inc’s Sparkle In a Flash Bundle ($408). Comprising the Pure Revival Peel, Vitamin B3+, Pure Deepsea Hydrating Mask and the Optimizer Voyage Trilight, for a facial in just 10 minutes. First, the Pure Revival Peel gently clears dead surface skin, while helping to prep the skin to effectively absorb the skincare product’s nutrients and helping to revitalise the skin. Next, the Vitamin B3+ serum helps reduce dark spots, evens out the skin tone and strengthens the skin’s barrier. It provides long-lasting hydration and can be used on the face and the eye area. For best results, blend with up to two other Skin Inc customisable serums.

Also included in the Sparkle in a Flash bundle is the sleep-in transparent gel mask, which hydrates, clarifies and brightens skin and mums can use this every night. This mask contains nutrient-rich Okinawa deep sea water, hyaluronic acid and soya bean extracts. While all of the above are safe for pregnancy, the Optimizer Voyage Trilight is best reserved for after pregnancy (for all the late nights with the baby). Tackle multiple concerns in just 10 minutes with the power of coloured LED Chromotherapy and Sonic Technology. Use this with water-based products like Skin Inc serums and the hydrating mask.
