You’re Pregnant?! 10 Things I’d Love To Buy You

By michellehorton |

What’s that? You say you’re pregnant?

Well congratulations, friend! How exciting! I’m already mentally compiling your baby registry in my head, and I have about four different baby shower themes I’ve been dying to use.

Too soon? Okay.

Well here are some things I’d love to buy you for these next nine months — that any decent friend would buy you, really. Assuming that I actually knew you, of course, and that I was this nice of a person. Neither of which are true:

10 Best Gifts for Pregnant Women

B.D.A. Pant, $69.95

You can't tell me you wouldn't strip off those stiff-looking jeans and climb into these luxuriously soft pants right now, given the chance. Made from silky-smooth bamboo fibre (that you'll never, ever want to take off), you'll wear these before, during, and after your pregnancy.

(Just to be clear: I'm buying myself these pants, and you can borrow them. You're welcome.)
Buy from Belly Bandit

If you’re a formerly pregnant friend of mine who didn’t receive much of anything from me, don’t take it personally.

I meant to buy you these things. Honest.

    When my wife was pregnant I got her a lemon smelling wickless candle warmer. She couldn’t eat and she was self conscious on clothing, but this candle warmer did the trick. She loved it.

    You know when it comes to gifts here’s the deal.

    After 17 years, I started running out of idea. I mean Christmas, Birthday, Anniversary, Valentines and Mothers day can start depleting the gift ideas. Remember being all creative and then you get to the point where you say “I’ve down that, I’ve bought that”. I ran out of ideas. My buddy told me about this one present for under $100 bucks she’d love it. It was a wickless candle warmer. They look pretty cool and went with the white kitchen cabinets.

    Then you can choose the wax that melts and smells awesome. My lady loves SIMPLY LEMON.
    Here’s where I bought it.

    Anyhow that’s what I did and she loves it. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.

    You are the greatest friend ever. Every gift here is perfect. Add a can of pickles and some chocolate bars and you’ve made the perfect pregnancy basket.
