If the expectant mother in your life is still in her first trimester or experiencing morning sickness, Preggie Pops Drops are a must-have. They are all natural, organic and proven to help with nausea. These drops are individually wrapped so that are portable so an expectant mom can take them in her pocket, diaper bag, or purse.!
These drops are drug-free and contain vitamin B6 which doctors recommend for morning sickness. Many people also find them helpful for dry mouth from labor.
This keepsake frame is awesome for displaying that first ultrasound photo. Expectant moms would love to get the photos off the fridge and displayed properly.
The gender-neutral, simple white frame comes with silver lettering to make it appropriate for the nursery or the living room. The frame measures 7” by 6.5” and fits a 4” x 3” photo.
This 2-pack of contains large lemon verbena-scented candles. Pregnancy and postpartum are stretching times and sometimes just taking the time to light a nice candle is enough to snap me out of a funk.
These candles are made from renewable ingredients like soy and vegetable wax and the lead free candle wick burns for 35 hours. The candles come in a recyclable glass jar and makes these attractive and functional.
New mamas are tired mamas. Very few moms will have time for traditional first-year baby books so these calendars are helpful. We used this exact one for our son and I’ll probably use it for this next baby too.
It’s easy to use the included stickers to mark milestones like rolling over. New moms can hang it in a high traffic spot and jot memories on the calendar as they occur. Each month also has a spot for a photo. I just chose a favorite photo on my Photos app each month and then printed them all off after my child’s first birthday.
Wedge pillows are so helpful for belly and back support for expectant moms. I also found it helpful to sleep with my wedge pillow between my knees during my last pregnancy. Some moms find it handy for lower back support while sitting during pregnancy or to elevate feet in the evenings to relieve edema.
This pillow also comes with a travel case which is incredibly helpful for trips and anytime an expectant mom is on-the-go.
This cute leopard print travel mug comes with a straw and cleaning brush. It’s stainless steel and double-walled so hot drinks stay hot and cold drinks stay cold. The slider lid and vacuum seal reduce spills and trust me, expectant moms are prone to spilling.
This tumbler holds 30 ounces so it’s great for any pregnant mama who wants to drink more water and likes it to stay ice cold all day. Large cups can be handy because sometimes it’s easiest to have one big cup and only need to refill it a few times a day.
The double-wall also keeps hot liquids warm all day long which is perfect after baby is born, too.
This super simple, horizontal bar necklace is a great gift for an expectant mama. The bar is 1.2 inches by 0.1 inch and has a 17 inch chain with a lobster clasp.
These come in silver, gold and rose gold and it can be worn alone or paired with other necklaces.
These double wall clear plastic tumblers include colored acrylic lids and straws.
Pregnant people are encouraged to drink a ton of water to beat edema and constipation (sad but true!); each tumbler holds 16 ounces. I like to fill up all my cups in the morning because it makes it easier to drink enough during the day – so this set is perfect for an expectant mother trying to stay on top of her water intake.
This set also includes a free straw cleaning brush to keep make sure the the straws are extra clean for a new mama.
This gift set is the complete solution to pregnancy stretch marks. It helps improve the appearance of stretch marks during pregnancy and postpartum. Several reviews said it also helped with c-section scars, too. If the expectant mother in your life is serious about her skin care, this is the gift for her.
It includes Stretch Mark Massage Lotion, Massage Cream, Tummy Butter Balm and Skin Therapy Oil. It’s made with cocoa butter, vitamin E, collagen, elastin, and Co-E.
This robe is soft, stretchy, warm and comfy. The adjustable waist is perfect for both pregnancy and for postpartum. The ties are attached to the robe which helps them stay put on laundry day.
In the hospital or birth center, it will be more flattering than a hospital gown for photos and visitors. The cheerful colors and floral prints are flattering and everyone knows expectant and postpartum women appreciate that.
This pregnancy gift basket includes three pregnancy and postpartum skin care products: Leg & Foot Cream, Belly Butter, and the Original Beeswax Lip Balm. Pregnancy and postpartum can really dry out a mom’s skin and stretch marks are a real challenge.
This set helps pamper a mom-to-be or a new mom in an attractive basket.
