15 perfect pampering presents for new mums

Shopping for a 'new mum' gift is undeniably harder than finding that perfect birthday or Christmas present – suddenly, a glittering eyeshadow palette or magnum of Prosecco doesn't feel quite appropriate.

In fact, new mum gifts are notoriously hard to nail, especially if you’re going for something a little more memorable than a bunch of flowers (although, a bunch of spring peonies is always welcome, too).

If you’re looking to mark a friend's first foray into parenthood this Mother’s Day (or any other time of year, in fact), you can’t go wrong with something in the pampering realm. After all, every spare minute a new mum can snatch is best spent soaking in a bath, armed with a candle and a face mask.

Here, discover our verdict on the very best new mum pampering gifts.
