It seems like as soon as you announce that you’re pregnant everything becomes about the baby.
Hello people! Someone has to carry this child for nine whole months, and she’d like a little attention too!
Christmas is a great time to show the expectant mama in your life that you’re thinking about her and not just the thing she’s growing inside of her.
This list will keep you off the naughty list and on the good side of the very hormonal woman you’re searching for gift ideas for.
1. Prenatal Massage/Chiropractic Adjustment
With all of the aches and pains that come along with pregnancy, a good old relaxing prenatal massage will get you all of the brownie points. As an added bonus, a chiropractic adjustment can sometimes help get baby in position for labor and delivery which is a major plus.
2. Pregnancy Pillow
One of the worst things about pregnancy in the later weeks is trying to get comfortable sleeping with a huge belly. Also, sleeping on your back or stomach is pretty much out of the question. The key to amazing side sleep is one of these bad boys. With both having some support between your legs and under your belly, you’ll have some of the best sleep of your life.
Boppy | $39.99
3. Maternity Pants
My maternity joggers and leggings are literally the only thing I wear as I get further along in my pregnancy. The Kindred Bravely joggers are literally the most comfy thing I’ve ever owned and I have multiple pairs. Definitely a must buy!
Kindred Bravely | $29.99
4. Push Socks
I genuinely think hospitals clean their floors with crisco grease. There is no reason why they should be that slippery and obviously shoes are a no go. Socks with a good rubbery grip are amazing for labor and extra points for cute messages on the bottom like this.
Kindred Bravely | $9.95
5. Bio-Oil/Belly Butter
Stretch marks are pretty much genetic, but there’s no harm in attempting to prevent them in whatever ways you can. My go to product is Bio-Oil and I haven’t had a single stretch mark in three pregnancies (so far). There’s a million options on the market though to find the perfect one for any mama.
Bio-Oil | $14.47
6. Birth Ball
Birth Balls are a Godsend closer towards the end of your pregnancy and during labor. I’m sure we’re all aware of how gravity works and getting baby to get into position is a lot easier when it’s working with you and not against you. That’s where these bad boys come into play.
The Birth Ball | $44.99
7. Maternity Photoshoot
As long as it seems when you’re going through it, pregnancy doesn’t last forever. One of the most important things that I always forget about is having memories to look back on. I literally have zero pictures of me pregnant with my middle child (of course smh). It’s definitely something I regret all of the time. Take it from me, even if it’s something small, let her have the chance to feel gorgeous like the queen she is and have the memories. She’ll love you forever!
8. Silicone Wedding Band
Another weird things about pregnancy is that sometimes you swell up in random places…like your fingers. Towards the end of my pregnancies I usually can’t wear my wedding rings, but I still wanna represent! These silicone rings are the best, and you can choose from so many different colors and designs. Major plus, they don’t cut off your freaking circulation.
Enso Rings | $8.24
Pregnant or not, this is an awesome gift. Pregnancy does warrant a little extra attention to the doggies though! that swelling I was just talking about? Definitely hits your feet and ankles pretty hard. Help her take a load off with a super relaxing pedicure.
10. Diaper Bag
I hate to break it to the guys, but yes, she does actually NEED a new bag this time. In my experience non-diaper bags don’t have nearly enough space or organization to cut it with all of the stuff you need for a new baby.
Petunia Pickle Bottom | $182.37
At the end of the day, Christmas Day isn’t about the gifts. However, if you want to have a nice Christmas night or just put a smile on a pregnant ladies face then these are some awesome options. Let me know in the comments any creative gifts you’re getting for the pregnant mamas in your lives!
