The Christmas lists of expectant mothers might be a bit longer than usual, and probably different than her past Christmas lists. To help you with your shopping, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best ideas for the soon-to-be mums in your life.
Time to get cosy
The Winter season is the perfect time to feel cosy. Pregnancy can be uncomfortable at certain stages so it’s a great time to splash out on anything that will make her feel more comfortable. Pyjamas are the perfect gift, ones with an elasticated waist and a jersey material even more so, ensuring that they can be worn throughout the pregnancy. Throws, slippers and candles are also ideal gifts to feel cosy and comfortable during pregnancy.
Time to relax
Pregnancy can be hard at any stage, so it’s important for mums-to-be to relax. Simple items to help, such as a heated eye mask can really do the trick - even if used for five minutes. It will be able to help them sleep better, something which is vital during pregnancy. A luxurious hand cream, or shower mousse are little items which will help them to feel relaxed throughout the day.
Time to unwind
Christmas can be stressful for everyone, particularly when approaching the festive season whilst pregnant. It’s important for mums to take time for themselves, before and after the baby arrives. A massage is a failsafe present, and with many different options available, you could choose to spoil her with a solo massage, a couples massage or even a mother and baby massage class.
Time to be prepared
Christmas is a perfect time to get those essentials to help in every way possible for mums-to-be, and a certified mum favourite is a portable baby rocker. Attaching to the buggy, it mimics rocking of the pram which often soothes the baby, giving mums more time to do what they need to do.
