for the mom who just found out
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
Whether it's Mother's Day, her birthday, or just an ordinary Wednesday, your girl deserves something nice. But not so nice that it will stay pristinely hanging in her closet bc it's "just too special." Gift her something gorgeous that she'll actually wear. We have a few ideas...
For the luxe-yet-practical mom
Let’s face it, women are busy. Whether your life is all about work, full-time momming, or a hodgepodge of ever-changing tasks and schedules, using your body as a human oven is kind of a lot to add to any mama’s plate. Trust us, she deserves some self-care more than anyone else.
for the mom in need of spa day
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.
