I have two thoughts when someone texts me the wonderful news that they’re having a baby. The first one is always, “AHHH I’m so excited and happy for them”! Of course, I’m not a monster. My second is, “Oh, what the hell am I going to get them?” It’s not that I don’t relish the opportunity to show my friends support, but let’s be honest, this is a loaded gift.

You want to get something that says, “I know what every new mum needs — but also, I’m a friend that buys your kids the cool stuff.”

So a few months ago I got that text that most Adeladies my age have now received, ”We’d like to welcome to the world XYZ, she was xx kg, mum and bub doing well, (insert a joke related to the dad).”

I couldn’t wait to get to the hospital to meet little XYZ, but as usual I had left things to the last minute and was going to meet her empty handed.

This is when my beautiful friend and Adelady Tory and her friend Milena (we’ll call her an honorary Adelaidian) solved my problem. They’ve started a little gem called Cloud Nine. It’s the perfect present idea for new mums. And especially good for lazy and forgetful women like myself.



Cloud Nine subscription box is amazing! It works like a subscription to a magazine or wine club, each month for up to 6 months, you receive a box full of amazing products.

If you’re going in with friends you can also opt for a bigger option – a once-off gift! Because this subscription box has been designed by mums it’s full of unique lux brands with products that only a mum knows you need.

You can even make it gender specific and it’s all online so you just sit back and get the accolades.

So I did this for my girlfriend and I’m pretty sure, I’ve now moved up in her top friends list.

If you have a friend who’s having a baby, check it out for yourself,
