Meaningful Mother’s Day gifts and New Mum gifts
Mother’s Day is thought to originate from the ancient Greek and Roman ages and is now celebrated all over the world. We usually think of this day as a day to celebrate and show our care to our own moms. But what about new mums? New mum gifts are also very important, especially coming from friends and family. Perhaps this is the boost a new mum needs on this whole new world that she has to explore.
In the age of women’s empowerment, Mother’s Day is an opportunity to not only celebrate mothers, new mums and mother-to-be, but also qualities of self-empowerment, nurture, femininity and goddess power. ilapothecary is created by women for women and we’ve put together a selection of last minute gift ideas for every kind of mother – even those who say they don’t need a thing.
Our new Beat the Blues Pulse Point is like giving your mother a perfume with a purpose. Infused with Tuberose, Geranium, Clary Sage and Petitgrain, it will help remedy mothers who are feeling overwhelmed and need a confidence booster.
FOR THE STRESSED-OUT MOTHER
A thoughtful gift when the mother in your life is going through a stressful time, experiencing fatigue or simply needs self-nurture. Infused with Maca and rose, our Feminine Body Oil feels luxurious soft on the skin. Always remember that new mums might often be stressed as well. This is one of those new mum gifts that can help her cope with the stresses of raising a newborn baby.

FOR THE MOTHER ON THE GO – YOUR HAND BAG ESSENTIAL

FOR THE MOTHER TO BE AND NEW MUM GIFTS
During pregnancy all our senses are heightened- smell, hearing, taste as well as touch. Many ilapothecary products and treatments are very suited to nourishing a mum during this incredible time of nurturing new life.
Preserving the skin is crucial as many ingredients found in skincare simply aren’t safe during this phase of our lives especially when it comes to aromas circulating through our home and workplace.
The good news is that ilapothecary body products are created with beautifully soft balms, butters and nourishing oils including Argan oil, Murumuru and Shea Butters to name a few. On this note, the ilapothecary Calm Butterfly’s Soothing Balm is ideal and the SOS Body Balm for the later trimesters.
Some more good news is that all ilapothecary facial products are also safe during maternity. Our skin becomes more sensitive during this time – especially the skin on the face. We recommend our Silk range and our Reset Vitamin A Serum oil which is rich in vitamins yet hydrating with Moringa, Himalayan Apricot oil and Seabuckthorrn .
Ilapothecary offers more inspiring body and home products that are safe during pregnancy:
Cleanse Your Aura Hand Wash, Keep Calm Hand and Body Lotion, Face The Day Exfoliating Body Wash, SOS Pearl Drops, Smelling of Roses Hand cream, Speak your truth Aroma roller, Light your Fire Candle, Create Space Diffuser oil
The ilapothecary pregnancy treatment is also an ideal mother-to-be Mother’s Day Gift (after the first trimester).
Ultimately, pregnancy is a precious time of grace, so creating gentle and joyful environments are important with soft natural aroma’s and healing music. New mums can also benefit from all these and get a strong head start in raising a new life.
AN EVERY DAY ESSENTIAL
Enriched with organic Argan oil, shea and cocoa butter, our Smelling of Roses Hand Cream is a safe bet for every mother. This everyday ultra-nourishing hand cream is beautifully scented with Damascena Rose and Rose Geranium.
