As this week has been one of celebrations for us, from my son's seventh birthday on Sunday to my thirtieth yesterday, I invited my lovey blogger friends to write about celebrations of their own.
Today Kate from Family Fever writes about perfect gifts for pregnant mums...
If you have a pregnant friend, you may well have been invited to a baby shower, or be planning to buy a gift to celebrate the fantastic news. Sometimes I like to buy a present just for the expectant mum, as they are usually inundated with new baby gifts, and a little treat just for you when you are pregnant can be such a wonderful thing!
Maternity clothes – this can be one of those things pregnant mums put off buying – they think they will only get a few months wear out of them, it can seem like a big expense when there are lots of baby things to buy. Why not treat your expectant friend to a maternity wear treat – I love Tiffany Rose, Isabella Oliver and Next for gorgeous, feel good clothes.
Pampering products – knowing which products to use during pregnancy can be a difficult on, so why not choose a set designed for mums to be? I love the beginning….range from Maclaren. There is something for everyone and every budget with treats such as massage oils, bath milks and leg lotions.
Bola necklace – this is a bit of a treat for mum and baby. A bola is a Mexican pendant which creates a soft chime as you walk around. This sound is believed to soothe and calm babies both in the womb and after birth – and they look ever so pretty too!
Scarf – if you don’t want to go for maternity clothes, what about a pretty scarf? Can make any outfit feel fresh and new, and if you choose one from a range such as Loveyush, they can also double up as a breastfeeding cover up once baby arrives.
Vouchers – if you are really stuck for a pressie idea, I find that vouchers always go down well. Try and choose something tailored to the expectant mum – for example a book token for a bookworm, or an iTunes gift card for a music fan. Failing that, book them a gorgeous spa day for after labour day – certainly something to look forward to during yet another night feed!
What would you have loved to receive when you were pregnant?
