Mama jacket

Welcome to the club, we’ve got jackets. Give her a not-so-subtle way of telling everyone her good news with this goes-with-everything denim jacket. It’s ultra-comfy and we added just a touch of stretch so she’ll be layering this on the daily throughout her trimesters and beyond.

the nest robe

No-brainer present? This robe. We gift it to anyone and everyone (yes, even Grandma) when the holidays roll around. The fit is customizable so you can rock it with or without a bump and the fabric is, in a word, dreamy. Sleeping while pregnant can be a serious struggle. Give your girl a running start with this cozy-yet-somehow-still-chic robe that can pull double-duty when she's up all night nursing.

Once those first thirteen weeks are up, or whenever she chooses, your mama is going to be SO ready to share her tiny little secret with everyone. This means it’s time to start showering her with textual proof of the miracle she’s growing and the newest name she’s going to be touting. Mama sweatshirt, mama underthings, mama on errything.

For the shout-it-from-the-rooftops mom

mama sweatshirt

It’s never too soon to start reppin’ that new name. Give her a token of her new role that she can wear on the daily. A comfy crew neck never goes out of style, and thanks to its oversize fit, she can wear this cozy cutie all throughout pregnancy and way beyond. Grab one for babe, too!

mama lounge set

She’d never dream about wearing a bra to bed pre-pregnancy, but the times they are a-changin’. This lounge-worthy favorite gives her growing breasts the support they need for a restful night’s sleep. Pair with the Mama Boyshort for a gift set she may not even want to cover up — for the record, we’re totally in favor of lounging in just bras + undies while she’s cooking a little one.

mama beanie

Speaking of gifts she can use right now... the holidays are officially beanie season. This chunky cable knit beanie complete with a pom pom detail will keep her head nice 'n toasty. But the real star of the show? That subtle "MAMA" repping her new title up front. Of course we made one for her little too since we can't resist a matching moment. #twinning.

If your girl wasn't sustainably-minded before, chances are bringing a tiny new life into the world will change this. Let her rest easy with these thoughtful (and chic!) eco-conscious styles that are gorgeously giftable.

For the earth-conscious mom

The Flutter Dress

Maternity is known to be temporary — aka wasteful — but we're working to tackle this problem right at the design phase. Our RTWX dresses are bump AND babe friendly, meaning she'll love rockin' them before, during, and after pregnancy. The Flutter Dress is a seasonal stunner that sneaks in nursing fuction with the button detailing up front. If you have her size, just hit buy. We don't know of any mom who wouldn't love this.

Environmentally safe water repellant. Oh yea, we could go on (but don't worry, we won't). Hit the link below if you wanna learn more.

The unwind Jumpsuit

When it comes to sustainable sleepwear, you've got options in the gifting department. Featuring eco-friendly and naturally breathable modal fabric (made from the pulp of beech trees using less water and waste!), this jumpsuit gets our vote for the most versatile gift. When we say versatile, we mean your girl will be happy as a clam wearing it to bed or out in public — pair with an open button up and no one will bat a lash.

sleepy lotion

If you happen to sleep next to one, you know… 78% of pregnant women suffer from insomnia. Handcrafted by an expecting mama who could relate, this non-toxic lotion has helped 1,000s of moms fall and stay asleep. Powered by a pure magnesium blend, there’s even a version tailored for babies and toddlers, 3 months and up! You know what they say... the best gifts are the ones you get for yourself, too.

the takeaway

Remember this equation: cute + personal = the best gifts for pregnant women. Even though Mom's lil’ plus one may mean some big changes for her, chances are she’s still the same person who enjoys the same things. So if she’s a fashionista mama, wellness junkie, or your favorite gal to movie marathon with, get her a gift that’s unique to her. The thoughtfulness is sure to melt her heart (and the pregnancy hormones help, too!).

When in doubt, look for grow-with-you fits she can wear for months and months (e.g., pregnancy and postpartum-friendly). As for skincare and wellness, you can’t go wrong with keeping things simple (think clean ingredients that are pregnancy-safe). Throw a bunch of items together in a cute ‘lil basket and you’ve got the gift of pampering she’ll surely appreciate.
