Pregnancy is a major milestone in a person’s life. The transition from when a maiden becomes a mother. It’s a time for celebration and support! Often we think to get the expecting mother a gift for the baby, which is so nice. She will most certainly need and appreciate it!

We’ve done the research for you and have found the best gifts to give a pregnant mom that we know she will appreciate and enjoy. Here’s to giving a helpful, fun, silly or sentimental gift to congratulate the new mother-to-be!

The Best Gifts to Give a Pregnant Mom

Maternity Robe

Pregnancy is hard work and can be exhausting. Pregnancy fatigue is real. This is why naps and lounging are very normal, especially during the first trimester. Have her stay comfortable all 9 months long and even after baby arrives with a soft and cozy robe.

Skin Care Kit

Women’s skin can really change during pregnancy. It’s not always glowing, her belly will be growing, and her skin can become parched and get acne.  Give her a refreshing skincare gift that is safe for her to use during pregnancy. These options are specifically made to soothe the discomfort of stressed, strained and stretched skin. This is a perfect way for mama to continue taking care of herself while she is growing her baby.

Pregnancy Journal

This is the only time she will ever have this experience with this baby. Have her remember all of the little and big moments with her own pregnancy journal. It’s something that she (and her future child) will cherish forever. This is one of my favorite gifts to give a pregnant mom.

Maternity Pillow

One of the best gifts to give a pregnant mom is the gift of sleep! Sleep can get difficult with a growing bump. She will either need ten different pillows all around her to get comfortable or a good maternity pillow for her body and/or bump. These two are great options.

Non-Toxic Nail Polish

Pregnancy is a time when women are extra careful about the chemicals they are around and what they put on their bodies. Normal nail polish is full of harsh chemicals. Give her some safe, non-toxic nail polish for her to enjoy a nice mani/pedi without the worries of being exposed to toxins.

Water Bottle

Staying hydrated is one of the most important things during pregnancy. It’s recommended that expecting mothers drink eight to ten 8-ounce glasses of water a day and some even say a gallon a day! Having a nice water bottle that she can have nearby and refill is a wonderful gift to remind her to keep sipping.

Jewelry

What woman doesn’t love jewelry? And these pieces are perfect for the mother-to-be. One has a beautiful message, another is perfect for the mother who is carrying her rainbow baby, and the third is a Bola necklace. A Bola necklace, also known as “The Angel Caller” or “Harmony Ball,” is an ancestral jewelry that can be found in many cultures across the world. A gentle shake of this pendant releases a soft chime sound that brings inner calm and harmony, and is believed to call the wearer’s Guardian Angel. Truly best gifts to give a pregnant mom.

Compression Socks

It’s not the most glamorous thing, but compression socks can be so helpful! Wearing compression stockings promotes good blood circulation and alleviates discomfort in the legs. They provide relief for the veins and reduce edema and swelling while also reducing the risk of varicose veins.

Extra Funny

And now for some very silly but somewhat helpful gifts. 😉

First, a summoning bell–for her to ring when she needs assistance. (Or a bowl of ice cream.) Next, a grabber–because there will be a time when she is too pregnant to reach for things . . . especially when they fall on the floor. And finally, barf bags–for the mama who has terrible morning sickness and wants to be prepared while on-the-go.
