Pregnancy Gift Guide

Let’s face it: Pregnancy is full of ups and downs (or at least it was for me). You are thrilled at the miracle of the baby growing inside you, but perhaps also stressed about the many ways your body is changing.

It seems like for every happy flutter of movement, you notice a new stretch mark. Every time you make it through another week of pregnancy, you’re putting away clothes that no longer fit. And for every thoughtful gift you’re given for the baby, maybe a little tiny bit of you wishes for a gift for yourself. After all, you are growing a human person inside of your body, and doesn’t that deserve a little love, too?

I think so, and that’s why I put together this pregnancy gift guide. Don’t wait for the baby shower to shower your friend, family member, or other special mamma-to-be with a small gift just to show you’re thinking about her. From a pillow that will help her sleep better to belly butter for softer skin and everything in between, consider giving a gift that will make her one happy woman.
