Perhaps you have been invited to a baby shower, or maybe your expecting friend has a birthday approaching and you are unsure what to get her. There are so many things to consider when buying a gift for an expecting mama, such as whether she is able to use her favourite bath and body products whilst pregnant (some products are unsuitable for use during pregnancy) which can make gift-searching a minefield!
When it comes to buying gifts sometimes the mummy-to-be gets overlooked. With everything that a pregnant woman goes through during her nine months, never mind the birth, wouldn’t it be nice to treat that gorgeous Mama to something that’s perfect for that moment in her life; something to show that you’re thinking about her and showing her that you care.
We have done the research for you and pulled together our top five gifts for an expecting mama. Take a look and let us know which one is your favourite!
During pregnancy feet suffer from aches and pains, and usually a pregnant mama is unable to reach her toes! Treat her to a relaxing pedicure.
2. A pregnancy subscription box
A pregnancy subscription box (such as this one from Baboo Box) is the perfect gift for a mama-to-be and contains a mixture of pamper and essential products.
3. Pregnancy Massage
Treat your friend to a professional pregnancy massage at a professional salon or spa. They will be fully trained to undertake pregnancy massage, as well as use products and massage movements that are safe for pregnant mamas. This will ease any pregnancy aches and pains as well as feeling like the ultimate treat.
Jewellery makes such a special, heartfelt gift. There are also many jewellers who offer charms in the shape of babies feet and hands which would make a wonderful gift for any mama-to-be.
