A woman goes through many physical and emotional changes during pregnancy. 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 personalised Christmas gifts for a pregnant wife, friend, relative, etc.
10 Best Christmas Gifts for Pregnant Women
Looking for the perfect Christmas gift for moms-to-be? Look no further, as these 10 gift ideas are sure to have you sorted.
1. A Maxi Dress
A pregnant woman’s body goes through many changes, such as a growing belly and swollen feet. A great gift idea is getting a mum-to-be something she looks and feels fantastic in. You could buy her a maxi dress in a soft, flowing fabric, along with a matching cropped jacket. You could swap the jacket for a matching cardigan, too.
2. Something Comfy for the 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. This is one of the best gifts for a pregnant friend or wife.
3. Satisfying Treats
Another pregnancy gift idea for Christmas is to hook the mom-to-be 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 or doesn’t enjoy.
4. 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 a luxurious spa appointment, even for just an hour, will give her a chance to relax and feel amazing.
5. Picture Frame
It may seem like a clichéd present, but for a mum-to-be, a lovely picture frame will serve as the ideal place to store pictures of the family. Even in this digital age, picture frames still hold sway! Go for a single frame or one in a collage design.
6. Personal Care Hamper
Even though she does sport a gorgeous glow, you can gift a pregnancy-safe hamper that the mom-to-be 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!
7. Sleep-aid Pillow
Sleeping gets less comfortable as an expectant mom moves ahead with her pregnancy. Gifting her a sleep-aid pillow or pregnancy pillow for that ‘cuddle me comfort’ is a wonderful idea. It’ll help support her back and her baby bump. This is a thoughtful gift for expecting mothers.
8. Prenatal Massage
A prenatal massage is another great Christmas gift for a 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 of a prenatal massage. Make sure you take her to a qualified professional, as a prenatal massage must be performed correctly.
9. Diffuser Package With Essential Oils
Though this one may seem generic as well, a diffuser package, complete with tea-lights and calming essential oils is a great Christmas gift for to-be moms. Many women feel nauseous during pregnancy, either due to hormones or certain smells. Scents like orange and lavender are soft and calming and can help relieve nausea. Not to mention, they help women relax.
10. Pregnancy Journal
Many women like to pen down their thoughts and feelings during their pregnancy, to look back on a few years later. A pregnancy journal is a concise way for to-be-moms to write down everything they wish to, and also gives them ideas and spaces to write certain bits of information they wouldn’t have thought of writing otherwise.
The holiday season is a time to pamper those you love. Whether it’s a family member or a friend who’s pregnant, these pregnancy Christmas gift ideas will please all kinds of expectant mums. Have a great time gifting your loved ones this Christmas!
