25 Special Gifts For Pregnant Women
1) Pregnancy Pillow
Being pregnant is not always easy or comfortable! Give the gift of comfort with a pregnancy pillow so she can sleep soundly all night (other than the midnight bathroom trip, of course).
2) Yoga Ball
A big yoga ball can come in quite handy for stretching or exercising with a big belly. But did you know that yoga balls can also double as birthing balls? It’s true!
By gifting a yoga ball, you’re giving a present that will be useful during pregnancy, birth, and also for postpartum workouts!
3) Hospital-Bag Goodies
Speaking of giving something that a mom might use on delivery day, why not give her some goodies that she can put in her hospital bag?
Things like travel-sized toiletries, grip socks or flip flops, and special snacks will do the trick.
4) Newborn Arrival Gift Set
There’s nothing wrong with giving a mom-to-be a little something for her little one! When you give Mustela’s Newborn Arrival Gift Set, she’ll get even more excited about welcoming her new baby into the world.
This set contains 5 essential skincare products that are hypoallergenic, paraben-free, and specifically designed for a newborn's delicate skin:
- Foam Shampoo for Newborns
- Gentle Cleansing Gel
- No-Rinse Cleansing Water
- Hydra Bébé Body Lotion
- Diaper Rash Cream 123
5) Sonogram Art
Turn the baby’s sonogram into keepsake art! From a print in a simple frame to an intricate piece of artwork based on the sonogram, anything with her baby’s first picture is sure to be a hit.
6) Sonogram Christmas Ornament
Another way to turn the sonogram into a special gift is to make it into a Christmas ornament! You can find plenty of online stores that do just that.
7) Pregnancy Journal
If she likes journaling or writing down special memories, a pregnancy journal is the perfect gift!
With pregnancy-specific prompts and questions, it will help the mom-to-be reflect on, write down, and remember important moments and feelings of her pregnancy.
Maybe the expecting mom loves lists, planning, and organizing!
If so, consider giving her a planner so she can remember all of her doctor appointments (pregnancy brain, anyone?) and stay on track with the projects she wants to do each trimester.
9) Maternity Skincare Set
Help the special mom-to-be pamper and care for herself with Mustela’s Maternity Skincare Set!
This set offers two powerhouse products that safely support and care for the changing skin of expecting mothers: Stretch Marks Cream Fragrance Free and Nursing Comfort Balm.
Both are fragrance-free, made with naturally derived ingredients, dermatologist-tested, and safe for mom and baby.
10) Spa Gift Card
What pregnant woman doesn’t love a pregnancy massage or a pedicure for those hard-to-reach toes? Another way to pamper the mom-to-be is by simply giving her a gift card to a spa.
To really up your gift game, also organize childcare for her older children and go to the spa together for a girls’ date!
11) Summer Essentials
If she’ll be pregnant during the dog days of summer, make the beach trips and pool days pregnancy-friendly with a gift set of sunbathing necessities.
Consider including a cute plastic cup for poolside hydration, a comfy beach chair for her aching legs, a raft with a hole for her tummy, and safe SPF 50 Mineral Sunscreen Lotion to protect her skin.
12) Pregnancy-Cravings Gift Basket
If you’re into collecting goodies and creating gift baskets, give her a basket full of her favorite snacks. If you can supply her with some of the foods she’s been craving, even better!
Take the gift up a notch by putting the snacks in a cute bag, box, or basket that she can reuse.
13) Subscription Box
While we’re on the topic of gift baskets and such, remember you don’t have to make your own for it to be a stellar gift! Subscription boxes are the gift that keeps on giving.
There are lots of subscription boxes made just for pregnant women. Plus, some are specific to each month or trimester of her pregnancy.
14) Baby Bathtime Gifts
Help the mom-to-be get ready for bathtime with her little one with a bath-themed gift.
Include a baby bathtub, hooded towel, bath toys, and newborn-friendly bath products like Mustela’s Bathtime Essentials Set, which includes a cleansing gel, bubble bath, micellar water, and baby lotion.
Each product is formulated with Avocado Perseose, a patented, natural ingredient specifically formulated to help protect and hydrate her tiny one’s delicate skin.
15) Relaxing Bath Set
Speaking of bath time, treat the mom-to-be to a bath gift as well so she can soothe her aching muscles! Bath salts, bubble bath, a bath bomb, and a candle are all great ideas.
16) Personalized Mug
A woman can never have too many mugs, right? Plus, a personalized mug for the expecting mom will make her feel special as she sips her favorite drinks.
Complete the gift with herbal teas for her to drink now and her favorite coffee for after her baby arrives and she needs that extra morning perk!
17) House-Cleaning Services
Give a gift card for house-cleaning services and you’ll give the tired, pregnant friend in your life a chance to kick back, relax, and let someone else do the housework for once!
18) Photo Accessories
One essential part of pregnancy is taking the weekly bump photo. You can contribute to the fun by giving photo accessories, like a letter board, so she can easily show off how many weeks along she is.
19) Pregnancy Cookbook
Eating a healthy diet is an important part of pregnancy. For the pregnant woman who loves to tinker in the kitchen, ignite her cooking creativity with a pregnancy cookbook!
20) Mocktail Recipe Book
The mom-to-be can’t have alcohol while she’s pregnant, but that doesn’t mean she can’t enjoy a fun mocktail! Gift a mocktail recipe book along with some of the necessary ingredients and a pretty martini glass.
Since we’re talking about books, the possibilities are endless when it comes to books that an expecting mother will appreciate!
Baby books, kid books, light reads, pregnancy books, parenting books…the list could go on, but you get the idea!
22) Robe Or Pajamas
Comfort is key during pregnancy! Outfit the pregnant mom with pajamas that will accommodate her growing tummy or a cozy robe to wear around the house.
23) Shoes Or Slippers
Comfortable footwear that fits swollen feet is essential! Birkenstock sandals or a pair of slip-on walking shoes make good, practical gifts for pregnant women.
Or, keep her comfy at home with a pair of cozy slippers or house shoes.
24) Stretch Marks Serum
With a growing belly and changing breasts, stretch marks often crop up. Having said that, another thoughtful gift for pregnant women is Mustela’s Stretch Marks Serum.
This concentrated hydrating serum moisturizes to help minimize the appearance of recently formed stretch marks while also giving skin a plump look and feel.
Our serum’s fragrance-free formula is made with 96% ingredients of natural origin, such as Avocado Oil, which is rich in essential fatty acids and boasts nourishing properties to help restore the skin’s barrier, and plant-based glycerin to moisturize and protect her skin.
Other nourishing ingredients include Maracuja Oil and Hyaluronic Acid. Maracuja Oil is a patented ingredient extracted from passion fruit, known for its repairing and soothing effects on the skin, and Hyaluronic Acid helps keep skin moisturized.
A little something pretty never hurts! You can find a wide variety of jewelry that boasts her new title of “mommy” or incorporates her baby’s name.
