I think it's a great idea. I pay for my own cleaner these days, I couldn't live without her. If I had to revise my budget, she would be the absolute last thing to go.

It really depends on the person, some people would love it, some would hate it. I'm in the camp that wouldn't like that as a gift. Not because I would be offended, but because I wouldn't want a stranger in my house (especially with a newborn - I could barely get out of my pj's and still had boobs hanging out everywhere when I was feeding when DS was a month or so old), and like a pp I would feel compelled to clean before the cleaner came, which would give me the irrits!
If you can, try to find a way to guage if that is something she would like, if so then it's a great idea!

Is this a good Christmas gift for a new mum?
Omg can you be my SIL I would love a cleaner or some meals. But some people are funny about stuff like that. I would just ask how they are coping with the housework and then offer- if you have kids you could do the " I know how hard it is to find time to do the floors/bathrooms with a newborn- would you like some help with those heavy cleaning jobs"

Re: Is this a good Christmas gift for a new mum?
I might just play it safe and get her a perfume gift pack. It might not be as personal as a cleaner for a few hours, but on the up side it's not as personal as a cleaner for a few hours
Now, what to get him...
