Visiting New Parents: What to Bring When You Don’t Know What to Bring!

There seems to be a general rule when visiting the houses of your friends and family for the first time after they’ve brought their newborn home: don’t come empty-handed. Fundamentally, we agree with this rule! However, we know first hand how much pressure it can be to pick something that will be truly beneficial for the child, and (if you’re really looking to kick goals), the parent(s)! 

Well, is now the time we reveal why it is that we call ourselves Good Day People?

We’ve done the hard work for you in terms of curating a selection of goods that will be pleasing for both Mum and bub. Sorry Dads, we haven't given you much of a look in here, but fret not! We’ve got plenty of hampers that will suit you down to the ground anyway!

After a new Mum hamper though? Come right this way - we’ll take you through a few that will make you a popular guest in the home of these new parents!

Delivered Diana has got all of the essentials for the new mumma! Here’s what we mean: a bottle of rosé or non-alcoholic wine, Mayde tea: Restore, a travel Candle, Addition Studio Australian Native Bath Scrub, Bahen & Co Raspberry & Rose Chocolate, and Willow By the Sea Belly Oil. Everything they need, nothing they don’t!

Receiving a gift like Birthing Bernie, they’re going to want to keep popping out babies! This new Mum hamper includes an Altina alcohol-free cocktail, Willow By The Sea Bottom Balm, Snuggle Hunny Kids Organic Muslin Wrap, Snuggle Hunny Kids Dribble Bib, One Chew Three Cactus Silicone Teether, Mayde Tea: Restore, Made To Milk Lactation Cookies, and a Maison Blanche Candle. 

Pregnant Polly is the perfect hamper to expect when you’re expecting! She’s filled with great gifts for Mum and bub that include Mayde Tea: Restore, Made To Milk Lactation Cookie Mix, Willow By The Sea Bottom Balm, Snuggle Hunny Kids Organic Muslin Wrap, Snuggle Hunny Kids Dribble Bib, and a One Chew Three Cactus Silicone Teether. 

And, because we promised we had hampers fitting for new Dads too, here is a selection of hampers that celebrate his new role as well!

Is there a more suave way to raise a glass to parenthood than with a glass of whisky? The answer is no…because there is a right and wrong answer to the question! With a bottle of Nikka Whisky, a Makoto Jigger, Wondaree Macadamias and Bahen & Co House Blend Chocolate, Whisky Wayne is a no brainer for new Dads.

Humorous Henry is an obnoxiously indulgent way to celebrate anyone’s introduction to parenthood. And you know what? We’re here for it. If you’re about to lose seven eighths of your sleep every night to a wailing, hungry little bundle, you deserve to enjoy the crap out of the one 20 minute window you get everyday that is entirely yours. So, should we show you the goods? Rhetorical question, obviously. Humorous Henry contains a bottle of gin or a non-alcoholic spirit, two StrangeLove Tonics, a Travel Candle, Bramble & Hedge Sticky Date Caramel Nougat, and a Makoto Jigger. 

So sure, you could turn up with enough spaghetti bolognase to feed a small army (maybe actually do that, we hear home-cooked meals go down a treat for new parents), but nothing screams CONGRATULATIONS and HOPE YOU DIDN’T ENJOY SLEEP THAT MUCH quite like a Good Day People hamper! It’s the perfect compilation of indulgences for any new parent who is about to discover the sensation of being run over by a truck…for 20 years.

To all new parents: mazel tov - we hear it’s a real treat!
