Best Gifts For A Pregnant Mama!
Are you trying to find a great gift to buy your pregnant sister, cousin, daughter, niece, work colleague or even yourself?! Look no further, here are some awesome gift suggestions for a natural-minded pregnant-mama as I share some of the goodies that I've been loving this pregnancy
1. MAMA MIO STRETCH MARK PREVENTION KIT
The complete kit to get every pregnant mama set up with the ultimate stretch mark-defense system whilst growing through the trimesters. Affordable and effective, these products are organic, omega-rich, 100% safe for pregnancy & breastfeeding, and completely free from parabens, petrolatum, colourants, xenoestrogens, PEGs and phthalates.
The Mio Body Brush to rejuvenate old skin cells and improve cellulite.
The Mama Mio Pregnancy Boob Tube Bust Protection Cream reduces swelling and soothes itching nipples with antioxidant-rich CoQ10, Milk Thistle and Organic Rosehip Fruit Oil.
The Mama Mio Tummy Rub Oil helps bump stretch smoothly by nourishing skin with an organic blend of Argan, Coconut, Sweet Almond and Rosehip Fruit Oils.
The Mama Mio Goodbye Stretch Marks Stretch Mark Minimizer contains powerful peptides, fruit extracts and nourishing oils, helping to improve the look of stretch marks and skin pigmentation.
Mama Mio's Fragrance Free Tummy Rub Butter is my fave, as it provides maximum protection with omega-rich Organic Oils (including Coconut, Avocado and Sasha Inchi) and Vitamin E to moisturize, with zero fragrance, helping keep that nausea at bay for those with pregnancy scent-sensitivity like me!
Hook your preggers friend up by gifting her this selection of body-cream-armor to ward-off stretch marks and prevent itchy bump wars in the night!! (Use code FRIENDS for 20% off!)
Who said you have to bring your baby into the world wearing a frumpy, old hospital smock? Bring some 'Beverly Hills' to your friends' Birthing Day by gifting her with the luscious 'Dressed To Deliver Birthing Gown'. Not only does it look super stylish, comfy and is practical in all areas, functioning for doctors easy accessibility. But Dressed To Deliver is a philanthropic company that for every gown sold, gives back to The Safe Beginnings Project which donates a safe birth kit to an expecting Mom in a developing country to prevent infection during birth!
Oh, and with a Dressed to Deliver Gown, Mama's going to look so glam in those first photos! I'm going to be wearing my Dressed To Deliver Gown on my Labor Day!!
During the second trimester, the baby is able to hear what's going on outside the womb. This beautiful, handmade bola necklace from Pleine De Lune creates a soft little chime sound as it bounces on bump to comfort and soothe baby. Then, when baby is born the chain can be shortened to wear around the decollate area so baby recognizes the same soft, comforting sound when feeding or being soothed. I love wearing mine and knowing both baby and I are hearing the same gentle tinkle whilst walking around.
For the pregnant friend who likes to journal, this is the perfect gift and keepsake to record each and every part of the pregnancy journey in a beautifully presented journal. Each page is filled with pretty illustrations, questions, lists, thoughts, dreams and plenty of spaces to write or include photos as it guides step by step through each of the weeks and trimesters until baby comes! Then there's the follow up journal 'Bundle of Joy' by Studio Oh for the Baby's first years!
Wildfox fabrics are so soft and comfortable for those slouchy evenings on the couch where fatigue and nausea take hold. Their clothing not only feels great against sensitive pregnancy skin and makes snuggling up look sexy, but they will be good for the entire nine months if you go up a size or two! This one was a gift from my husband and I have been literally been living in it lately!
Equip your friend with a much appreciated pregnancy-care package from Mama Earth Organics and score major Happy-Mama-To-Be points! This is one of my absolute favorite Mama-To-Be brands as their products are USDA Certified Organic and formulated with safe, beneficial and natural ingredients for pregnant and breastfeeding Earth Mama's. Be sure into include this Red Raspberry Leaf Tea in your gift-package which will help tone the uterus with 100% Organic Raspberry Leaf herbs as your pregnant friend prepares for childbirth.
If you're planning to gift a love-bundle from Mama Earth, be sure to include this mini selection of All-Natural Deodorants from Earth Mama too! Made for extra-sensitive mama armpits, they are free of any artificial fragrances, aluminum free, and free from propylene glycol and paraben nasties. I have one in my yoga bag, day purse and work desk drawer as their easily portable sizes means they can be thrown in any handbag or purse and used as needed, making sure I smell great and protecting my lymphs nodes with all their all-natural calming ingredients and essential oils.
This four-pack contains the heavenly flavors of refreshing ginger-lime GingerAid Deodorant, tangerine-y Bright Citrus Deodorant, fresh, soothing Calming Lavender Deodorant and a naturally unscented for those mamas with sensitive noses.
Empower your friend all the energetic support she needs for labor from the crystal realm with this pack of the The You Power's Top 10 Crystals For Childbirth. This selection includes Carnelian, Lapis Lazuli, Malachite, Amethyst, Unakite amongst others, to help bring strength, grounding, release fears/blockages, ease pain or stress, and bring love, balance and protection for an empowering, smooth childbirth. I'm planning to pack my pouch of Childbirth Crystals in my hospital bag!! (Free Guided Meditation for Labor Included!)
This soft, stretchy, comfy yoga bra if the perfect gift for mama's who like to workout, like me! I got a slightly bigger size in the first trimester as my breasts started to swell and has lasted me whilst I've grown 3 cup sizes! It will also be great post-pregnancy as the little clasps make super easy and convenient to breast feed.
Bring some glam to maternity wear and get her some stylish tights that aren't tight around belly or baby! They are super comfy and look great with everything from floral dresses to workout shirts! They come in lots of different shades and deniers, my favorite are the 150D thick, black leggings.
Ahh!!! You have to get this for the new mama-to-be! I love the Good Hyouman fabrics as they are soft and durable, comfy, cosy whilst stylish and cool, but this t-shirt has the best slogan ever for a brand new mama that is proud to be "The Best Mom Ever." All products are manufactured in the United States of America and Good Hyouman gives back to the community.
