Perfect Gifts for Pregnant Mums

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...

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?
