I’ve recently attended several baby showers and pregnancy is on my mind! I’ve previously written about pain free pregnancy gift ideas and after attending so many baby showers for expectant moms, and now I wanted to share more great gifts ideas I’ve discovered.
In today’s post we are looking at some of the things pregnant women might enjoy as a gift. We all know pregnancy is an emotional and physical experience full of changes so many of these gift ideas are tailored to help a women through the tough days.
Pregnancy Belly Butter
Many women are worried about the weight gain and belly stretch marks that often come with pregnancy. The idea of forever gaining stretch marks can be less than desirable for many mamas to be. Give the gift of belly butter to help prevent stretch marks and keep mama’s skin soft and happy during pregnancy and beyond. These delightful butters are made with cocoa, shea and jojoba butters and feel luxurious on the skin – it’s both practical and luxurious!

Having lots of comfortable and supportive pillows is a must during pregnancy. Pregnancy pillows are a great gift to give pregnant women since they enable better sleep and more comfort in a variety of positions. Pillows specifically designed for maternity can be a thoughtful and welcomed gift.

Essential Oils for Pregnancy
Pregnancy can bring many uncomfortable feelings and complaints. Things like back pain, headaches, swollen ankles, and morning sickness are very common complaints during pregnancy. Luckily aromatherapy and the use of essential oils can help eliminate many of these problems! If you’re into essential oils giving a starter pack or a specific essential oil to relieve problems is a great gift idea.
