Mother’s Day is quickly approaching. If you have a lady in your life that is pregnant for the first time or expecting baby number two or three during Mother’s Day, you might want to get her a thing or two that she will love and that is also perfect for this time in her life. Yes, even first time expecting mamas can celebrate Mother’s Day! A woman becomes a mother the moment she finds out she’s pregnant–that’s what I believe. You are taking care of yourself and growing this tiny baby so you should be celebrated! So honor your special lady with one (or a few) of these Mother’s Day gifts on her day.
1. Belabumbum’s Maternity Robe | $70
Having a good robe is exactly what a new mama needs. She will be living in this after she has her baby. I love that this robe is feminine, dark (to hide baby stains), and sexy. The perfect thing to throw on and still look put together. It’s great to lounge in before and after baby.
2. Pajama Set
I love a good matching pajama set. It’s like a stylish outfit for the tired mama. 😉 These sets are great options that she will enjoy since she will be wearing pajamas quite a bit after she has baby.
3. Mom (Pink) Bath Bomb | $7.95
What mom doesn’t want some R&R in her life? Bath bombs are the best and this bath bomb releases pink swirls of Sicilian lemon and sweet orange with refreshingly floral hints of rose. Yes please! This will give her the much needed soak in the tub with some extra love.
4. Sleep Mask | $45
Sleep is a hot commodity when you are pregnant. Waking up every couple of hours to go to the bathroom or switch to a more comfortable position can cause some major sleep insomnia. One of these luxurious sleep masks will help her doze right back to sleep.
5. Day Spa Bundle | $50
Going to the spa–and pretty much any spa treatment–is what every pregnant mama wants. So much is moving and changing in her body that it can cause some major discomforts. So a little TLC will really help her feel better and feel loved. This day spa bundle is sure to do the trick!
6. Mama Bee Belly Butter | $13
As I said, her body is changing. Taking good care of her skin as her body grows with baby is very important. This extra rich belly butter specially blended to nourish and moisturize skin during your nine month stretch is a great choice. This natural, fragrance-free formula contains a combination of Cocoa, Shea, and Jojoba Butters that will keep her belly feeling soft and smooth before and after her new arrival. No phthalates, parabens, petrolatum, or SLS.
7. Protect Her Lips & Skin | $19
Just like you are nourishing her skin with the belly butter, this Everywear Lotion & Lip shield is exactly what she needs to protect herself from the sun. Getting Vitamin D is important during her pregnancy but we also don’t want her to burn!
8. Bais Black Candle | $90
I love a good candle and diptyque is the best. This delicious scent will brighten up her day every day she lights it. It will also remind her of her special Mother’s Day.
9. Celfie Vase | $9.99
For the lady that loves flowers or has a green thumb, this is for her. It would be so sweet if you got this feminine vase with some soil and seeds inside and it will grow into something beautiful just like she is growing that beautiful baby.
10. A Good Book
These are some books that are great reads and are perfect coffee table books. They will inspire her, comfort her and help her take care of herself as she approaches her big day to meeting baby.
11. A Planner | $16.99
Life is getting busier as she is prepping for her new arrival. Staying organized will help her log and remember these special days and it will help her stay sane. This cute week-by-week agenda is a great option.
12. A Playful Dress
Our May Mommy Chick, Whitney, designs these “playful dresses for playful moms”. The fabric is so soft, stretchy and comfortable. I know she will choose this as her quick and easy go-to in her closet. I certainly will. She will love feeling feminine through all stages of motherhood in this dress. It stretches perfectly for when she has a bump and beyond.
13. New Purse
A new bag is always a good gift idea. I chose options for a cross body bag, clutch and tote bag. Honestly, these are great gifts whether she is pregnant or not. 😉
What girl doesn’t love jewelry as a gift? Show her how much you love her and appreciate her growing this baby by getting her something extra special. This bangle says it all and this initial pendant necklace will make her swoon. For the initial–if she already knows what the baby’s name is going to be–get her the initial of baby’s name. She will love them both!
15. Non-Alcoholic Champagne | $15.99
This is a holiday that should be celebrated! And since she can’t have the real thing, this fabulous non-alcoholic champagne by Ready to Pop will make her giddy. So pop open that bubbly and says cheers!
16. Ice Cream Delivered | $49.99
There are a lot of things that she can’t enjoy when she’s pregnant, but ice cream–thank God–is not one of them. This premium collection from eCreamery comes in four delicious flavors. It will be delivered straight to her door for her to enjoy. Now that is true love in a cup.
17. A Great Card
Happy Mother’s Day | $4.50
Blooming Mother’s Day | $4.50
Rosy Mother’s Day | $4.50
Bouquet Mother’s Day | $4.50
Of course every Mother’s Day gift is not complete without a good card. I’m a huge fan of Rifle Paper & Co. cards and I thought these options would be perfect for her.
Those are my suggestions for Mother’s Day gifts for the pregnant mama. Normally I would include a massage or facial, but I wanted to give you some different options. What are some other things that you would love for Mother’s Day? Please share in the comments below!
