The Best Pregnancy Gifts - Gifts for a Mom-to-Be

Pregnancy is an exciting and even sacred time in a woman’s life. But planning and preparing for a little bundle to arrive can also be a very busy and even stressful time. Pregnancy gifts aren’t expected, but when an expectant mama does receive a gift, it’s a nice reminder to slow down and savor each moment. It’s a reminder that she—just like her baby—is special and loved.

Pregnancy Gift Baskets

If you want to go all-out on a pregnancy gift for an expectant mom, there are plenty of pre-assembled pregnancy gift baskets and sets to choose from (like the Belly Bandit labor and delivery kit above). Or, if you have a little extra time and want to give an extra-thoughtful pregnancy gift, consider making your own pregnancy gift basket. Here are some ideas:

Third trimester gift basket

That final stretch is a long one. Give mama-to-be a pregnancy gift basket that will help keep her comfortable while she waits for baby to arrive. Things like belly butter, red raspberry leaf tea, pregnancy affirmation cards, and a fun activity like this pregnancy coloring book are all great ideas.

Delivery care kit

Sure, she’ll remember to bring comfortable pajamas and a going home outfit for baby, but a first-time mom would definitely appreciate an entire basket of pregnancy gifts full of things she might not think to have on hand during labor and delivery. Some great ideas include: organic lip balm, non-slip socks, essential oils, and sitz bath spray.

4th Trimester gift basket

Once baby arrives, mama’s world is going to be turned upside down. One of the best pregnancy gifts is a gift basket filled with some self-care items for those trying couple of weeks. Think: sitz bath spray, the Fridet MomWasher (nobody said this was a glamorous pregnancy gift basket!), AfterEase herbal tincture, Mother’s Milk tea, and Nipplease silver cups.

Pregnancy Gifts Don’t Have to Cost Anything

Don’t underestimate the gift of time—especially for a new mother. Because she has very little of it, one of the most precious things in a new mom’s life is time. Instead of give material pregnancy gifts, consider giving something less tangible—your love and assistance. Here are some ideas for pregnancy gifts of time:

  • Meals: Make a nourishing meal and drop it off. Rather than ask her what she wants, just leave one of these nourishing meals on the doorstep.
  • Cleaning: Offer to come over and do a load of laundry, take out the trash, or tidy up her kitchen.
  • Childcare: Though mama probably won’t be ready to hand off her newborn just yet, she may really welcome an extra hand with any older children, whether that means dropping them off at school or taking them out for the afternoon.
  • Pet care: If the family has a pet, mama would probably really appreciate having someone to help walk the dog or change the litter box.
