The holiday season is a time to pamper those that you love. But why not give some extra special pampering to those women that are expecting a little bundle of joy.
Pregnancy can be tough on a woman’s body, especially during the holidays when she can be the busiest trying to prepare for friends and family. There are so many great gifts for pregnant women, but there are some extra special gifts that will help her relax and release some of the stresses in her life.
At eight months pregnant, there are several gifts I’d love to receive that will help pamper me and get me throughout the rest of my pregnancy.
Queen Bee Mom and Baby Gift Set 1 of 7
Sleep can be tough both when you are pregnant and have a new baby at home. Give her something comfortable to rest in with this adorable gift set that includes a matching nighty for baby. She can wear the soft nightgown during pregnancy and it makes a great set for nursing once the baby arrives.
At Home Gift Set 2 of 7
This set might look like it's for the baby, but with this line of natural and organic aromatherapeutic skin care products, the expectant mama will love it too! The set includes head and body wash, body milk, massage and body oil, lip and cheeks moisturizer and protector, and diaper cream. It comes in the cutest package. She will love being able to use products that are safe for her and her baby.
Knocked Up Nails 3 of 7
Let her treat her nails to something that is safe for pregnancy. Knocked Up Nails has created a line of nail polish that is free of toluene, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, dibutyl phthalate or camphor. Whether she loves giving herself a manicure and pedicure or wants to take a trip to the spa to have her nails done, she will love not having to worry about adding any possible harm to her and the baby.
New Mama Gift Set 4 of 7
This gift set will not only pamper the expectant mom, but it will also be a great gift that will last into motherhood. One of my favorite things about this set is that it brings together five small businesses with great products for new and expectant moms. This gift set includes nursing pads, nipple butter, belly cream, a great pair of soft underwear, and cookies that help with your milk supply. She will love getting pampered with gifts she can use now and when the baby arrives.
Bamboo Daydream Blanket 5 of 7
Many times throughout pregnancy, all she wants to do is cuddle up on the couch for a nice nap or to watch a great movie. Give her something soft and luxurious to wrap up in so that she can rest comfortably. This Daydream blanket from aden + anais is made of bamboo fiber muslin is one of the softest blankets she will ever touch. Give her luxury and rest with this great blanket.
OMega Feel Good Mini Set 6 of 7
I've used several of Mama Mio's products throughout my pregnancy and beyond and there hasn't been anything from their product line that I don't fall in love with. This set is complete with five of their best selling products that she will appreciate during and after pregnancy.
Mama-To-Be Tea Sampler 7 of 7
If she's looking for a natural way to remedy some of the pregnancy discomforts, this tea sampler is perfect her. There is nothing more relaxing than a nice cup of hot tea, especially during these cold winter months. This tea sampler will help with nausea, heartburn, anxiety and labor. All of the teas are organic, kosher and safe for the mama-to-be.
