Oh, I had so many people that I love in my mind when putting together this post. Not only is my sister seven months pregnant, but an overflowing handful of my girlfriends are expecting babies in 2018. I love it!
I’ve already written a couple of gift guides this month for women (moms specifically as well as sisters), so those items might work for expecting moms as well, but I wanted today’s guide to really have that expecting mama and her needs in mind. What will make her feel better physically? What will help her around the house? What will feel like a little treat, just for her? Here are a few ideas for spoiling the expecting mom in your life, because she deserves it. 🙂
Gift Ideas for Expecting Moms
iRobot Braava Robot Mop ($249.99), because she can set it, forget it, put her feet up with the baby, and then get up a little while later to freshly mopped floors. Amen.
Labor and Delivery Socks ($12.95), because she has a sense of humor and these will make her labor and delivery team roar with laughter when pushing time finally comes. (I would know; My girlfriend made me socks like these for Hadley’s birth, and the nurses and doctor that walked in about fell over laughing. We needed some comedic relief in the midst of a long labor!)
Side Tie Maternity Top ($35.98), because this maternity top looks so pretty and flattering on a baby bump.
Honeydew Intimates Jersey Robe ($38), because she’ll be living in a jersey robe like this throughout her pregnancy, as well as in the hospital, and once she’s home with her new babe. Slip it on over some maternity leggings and a nursing tank and you’ll have my wardrobe that I wore for three straight months after Sadie was born. 😉
iRobot Roomba 650 Robot Vacuum ($299.99), because it’s a robot vacuum (enough said).
Nursing Scarf ($25), because how neat that she can throw this on as a scarf all year round and then adjust it a bit to turn it into a make-shift nursing cover?
Living proof Dry Shampoo ($12+), because this dry shampoo is second to none. It’s truly the very best out there! She’ll love this in the hospital as well as during the weeks before and after she has her baby and isn’t much up for washing her hair as frequently as she used to.
Baby Briefcase document organizer ($29.95), because new parents receive so many documents, keepsakes, and more during their time in the hospital, so this little briefcase will be so incredibly handy for keeping everything nice and secure.
Mom & Dad Coffee Mug set ($21.95), because cheers to a brand new adventure together.
Stemless Wine Glass & Coffee Mug Set ($23.99), because #truth. She’ll laugh at this and love you (so much!) for it all at the same time.
Sweating for Two T-Shirt ($15.99), because this would be so adorable to wear while showing off your new bump.
Don’t forget that every weekday until November 22nd there will be a new gift guide on this site! You can see the full guide and links to each day’s posts here.
Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother is today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to two little girls (ages 4 and 2) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
