We like to honor moms every day, but in the day-to-day, it can be hard to find the time to show the Mamas in our lives just how much we appreciate them. That's why we love celebrating Mother's Day - even if it strikes the fear in the hearts of clueless dads, sons and brothers. If you're still scratching your head for the best gifts for expecting moms or the new Mama in your life - we’ve got your back. With a mix of pregnancy gift sets for expecting mothers and new mom gift ideas, it’ll be hard to pick just one.
Pregnancy isn’t always easy - show the mom-to-be you understand by gifting her this #BumpinAintEasy mug. A perfect gift for pregnant moms, this mug is sure to be her new fav. She might love it so much, she may even use it after she’s bump-free. Just be sure she’s not trying to tell you something… (like baby #2, perhaps?).
No new mom gift guide would be complete without a pregnancy gift set. Give the Mama-to-be a Spoiled Mama pregnancy gift box this Mother’s Day. With our bestsellers like Tummy Butter for stretch marks and Bump Gloss pregnancy stretch mark oil, she’ll look and feel great during every trimester. Our Stretch Mark Prevention Trio comes with Tummy Butter, Bump Gloss stretch mark oil, and Indulge sugar stretch mark scrub, is the ultimate gift for an expecting Mama. Or, gift our Bump Bag Bliss pregnancy gift set - featuring our pregnancy skincare bestsellers along with exfoliating gloves and the cutest cosmetic bag. You can thank us later.
No mom-to-be checklist would be complete without a diaper bag. How else is she going to carry her Nipstick Nipple Cream? One of the best gifts for pregnant moms is a sleek diaper bag - like this one from Skip Hop. With enough pockets to carry all the new mom and breastfeeding essentials, this lightweight diaper bag even comes with a fold-up, cushioned changing pad - just in case you forget it, because, #mombrain.
Maternity Photo Shoot
Even the most camera-shy pregnant Mama will appreciate a chance to show off that #babybump. One of the best gifts for expecting mothers is a maternity photo shoot. You don’t have to go all out - an in-home photoshoot can still make her feel like a million bucks. Plus, she’ll be able to look back on the time she was rockin’ that flawless baby bump.
Plan a Babymoon
Planning for a baby is stressful - prepping the nursery, getting all the baby necessities, and generally preparing for a huge life change. A great Mother’s Day gift for a pregnant wife is a babymoon. It’s kind of like a honeymoon, but for pre-baby. It doesn’t have to be extravagant, it can simply be a staycation at a nearby hotel or just a spa day. A relaxed mom-to-be is a happy mom-to-be.
Give Mama a way to show off her new mom status with this Mama Bird t-shirt or tank. Since she hasn’t been able to wear normal clothes in forever, she’ll more than appreciate this. The tee’s are printed on cream or white shirts and the tank is in black so they’ll fit every Mama’s style. And, it’s even a great gift for pregnant moms because, who doesn’t love getting new clothes?
A great pregnancy gift for first-time moms is this NuRoo nursing scarf. This more-than-meets-eye scarf is perfect for the new Mama who wants to be stylish while breastfeeding. It transforms into a seriously cute nursing poncho in just a few snaps! Win-win.
If there’s one thing a new mom wants - no needs - it’s wine. So why not make her wine night that much better with these New Mom Wine Labels. With a label to celebrate every milestone - from the “First Mommy Meltdown” to “Baby Slept Through The Night”, this new mom gift idea will make her happy hour that much more satisfying.
Though we certainly wish we can show new moms and moms-to-be just how much we love and appreciate them daily, Mother’s Day is a great way to show her a little something extra. So use this guide for some of the best maternity gifts for an expecting mom or new Mama and you’re sure to be crowned husband/brother/son/daughter of the year.
