10 GIFTS FOR A MAMA-TO-BE

Sunday, February 5, 2017









Maybe it's because I'm pregnant, but everywhere I look I'm seeing pregnant mamas and newborns! I love it. I have several friends on Instagram that are due within just a month or two of me and I love following all their sweet bump pictures. I can't wait for my feed to fill up with (even more) adorable babies! Here are some fun gift ideas to spoil the bumpie in your life that go beyond the baby store gift card. =)

// 10 GIFTS FOR A MAMA-TO-BE //

PRENATAL MASSAGE
I was so spoiled to have received multiple prenatal massages during my last pregnancy! I absolutely love them and feel like they are such a fun splurge for a mother whose body is going through some serious changes in a short amount of time. If you're local to Charlotte Urbana Wellness Spa offers a great prenatal massage.

TEA
I follow Mama Body Tea on Instagram and love the idea behind their organic herbal teas for pregnancy, breastfeeding and motherhood. They have some really pretty gift packages to choose from, too!

BATH BOMBS
My friend recently gifted me a whole box of bath bombs and I am completely giddy over them! Taking a long hot soak after Olive goes to bed has become a weekly tradition during this pregnancy and I love throwing in a fizzy bath bomb packed with all kinds of goodies to make my skin soft and glowy. I've been drooling over Free People's bath salts and soaks, too - any of them would make a pretty gift!

MEMORY BOOK
I've talked about my love of Lucy Darling's baby memory books on the blog before - they are such a sweet, pretty way to remember the milestones. I recently came across Mushy Book's memory book which is so beautiful and clean looking. And for the mama that does a little more writing check out Promptly Journals!

BUMP BOX
My sister just told me about this idea! Subscription boxes are huge right now so it's no surprise that there are a bunch to choose from when signing up your pregnant friend. Check out Bump Boxes and Mama Bird Box. Both look like so much fun! I think I need to mention this idea to Isaac...

ENGRAVED NECKLACE
I love the hand stamped necklaces from Leila Jewelry. If your friend has already had her baby you could have a necklace personalized with the baby's name, initial or date of birth. Or go with something simple and classy like this Mama bar or disc pendant

PHOTO SESSION
I love looking back at my maternity photos! Gifting a photo session (maternity OR newborn) is a great way to help your mama friend remember (and embrace!) this special / crazy / eventful / exciting time in her life. Who wouldn't want sweet newborn photos like these to look back on?!

LOUNGE WEAR
My mom got me a set of pajamas right before I had Olive and I remember thinking it was such a sweet and practical gift. I was so happy to have something pretty and comfortable to wear for those first couple weeks of recovery. Della B. makes some beautiful and thoughtfully made hospital gowns for delivery and recovery.

GLASS BOTTLE
A prettier way to stay hydrated than lugging around a week-old bottle of Deer Park. I like glass bottles and BKR makes some really pretty ones with silicone sleeves.

SUBSCRIPTION TO A MEAL SERVICE
Fresh, easy-to-prepare meals delivered to your doorstep are all the rage right now and so perfect for a family with a newborn. Hello FreshBlue ApronGreen Chef and Freshly are all great choices. If your friend has food sensitivities a cleaning service would be a great alternative!
