Gift Ideas for Mums-to-Be
Heading to a baby shower can be overwhelming, for me at least. I enter the baby store and there are so many things and options, I just don't know what to get! I look at the baby stroller and think, well she probably already has that. Mums to be are quite busy, I doubt they have time to form a baby shower registry list. Another thing I think of is that we always tend to get something for the unborn child, but what about the mother to be? Doesn't she need a little bit of pampering too? Here are a few ideas to get a mum-to-be.
1. Mum and Child Jewelry
This is an awesome gift, especially if the mum is having a daughter. Get them both a personalized jewelry set. A bracelet for the mum to wear and a smaller version of it for the daughter as well. It's a very thoughtful gift and can be passed down through generations.
2. Trendy Diaper Bag
When you are a mum, sporting your designer statement bag isn't an option anymore. However, just because she's a mum it doesn't mean she has to put her style to rest. So how about you get your friend a statement diaper bag? Check out this diaper bag from Juicy Couture.
3. A Spa Certificate
Once the baby comes, 'Me Time' is going to be very rare, at least for a while. So why not book in some spa time for your pregnant mum-to-be and let HER enjoy the peace and tranquility before things become busy for her?
4. Cute Pajama Set
Just because she's pregnant, it doesn't mean she has to stop wearing sexy or cute pajamas. Maternity clothes have become extremely funky lately, so why not get your friend a silk pajama set or cute maternity nighties!
5. Toiletries Set
If you are going to purchase a set of baby bath products, be sure to go for a toiletries set for the mum too. Something that includes soothing oils, bubble bath salts and creams for stretch marks. A mum will also need to take extra care of herself after she gives birth.
