Whether a mum-to-be you know is having her first baby or her second, it’s always nice to treat expectant women with something special.
Pregnancy heralds many changes in a woman. If there’s a mum-to-be in your life this Christmas, giving her a thoughtful gift is a wonderful way to acknowledge just how special she is!
There are many Christmas presents for a to-be mum and it’s just a matter of finding one that’s right for her. Take your pick from these cute, affordable yet very personalised Christmas gifts for mums-to-be.
Best Christmas Gifts for Pregnant Women
A Fantastic Dress
A growing belly and swollen feet can really bring one down. A great gift idea is getting a mum-to-be something she looks fantastic in. You could buy her a maxi dress in a soft, flowing fabric in a dazzling colour along with a matching cropped jacket. You could swap the jacket for a matching cardigan too.
Something Comfy for Night Time
Getting enough rest is vital for an expectant woman. What better way to ensure she sleeps well than luxuriously soft sleepwear? Since it’s the cold season, you could add a pair of thick warm socks to make each night much more comfortable and enjoyable.
Crave Satisfying Treats
Another pregnancy gift idea for Christmas is to hook her up with gift certificates to her favourite restaurants or coffee houses. She can use them with a loved one. You can also take her out to lunch or dinner. Just be aware of what she shouldn’t eat and what turns her off.
Time-off at a Spa
The idea of spending a few precious hours at a spa always sounds fabulous, but most women don’t have the time or the money. Booking a mum-to-be into a spa even for just an hour will give her a chance to relax and feel amazing.
It may seem like a clichéd present but for a mum-to-be, a lovely picture frame will serve as the ideal place to show off her baby. Even in this digital age, picture frames still hold sway! Go for a single frame or one in a collage design.
Personal Care Hamper
Even if she does sport a gorgeous glow, you can gift a pregnancy-safe hamper that she can put to good use. Buy a kit that already has everything or put together one with essentials like reflexology socks, a head massager, massage oil and body butter. Once the products have been used, the hamper basket can be used as a handy storage box!
Sleeping gets less comfortable as an expectant mom moves ahead with her pregnancy. Gifting a sleep-aid pillow for that ‘cuddle me comfort’ is a wonderful idea. It’ll help support her back and her baby bump.
A prenatal massage is another Christmas gift for a soon to be mom. She’ll enjoy the relief from aches and pains caused by pregnancy. Lower stress levels and better blood circulation are a couple of other benefits. Make sure you take her to a qualified professional as a prenatal massage must be performed correctly.
The holiday season is a time to pamper those you love. Whether it’s a family member or a friend who’s pregnant, these gift ideas will please all kinds of expectant mums!
