With the holiday season quickly approaching, we know how stressful it can be to find unique and creative gifts for the special women in your life. Pregnancy and Motherhood is, as we all know, very hard work and 2020 has been an especially tough year in so many ways. To cheer her up with something that she’ll actually want, we asked our Mamas and Mamas-to-be what they’ve included on their wish list. Whether you’re shopping for your daughter, friend, sister, wife or Mother, you can be sure to get inspired by our community-approved selection below. These are some of our all-time favorite picks that are thoughtful yet budget-friendly to fit all types of gifting.
Affordable Gifts that won’t disappoint ($50 and under)
A subscription to Qeepsake, the modern baby book, will use text-messages to create and store memories about her pregnancy and child. Each year she’ll receive a beautiful keepsake book with those precious memories preserved digitally for life.
An electric baby nail trimmer will make the nerve-wracking task of cutting baby nails a breeze! This trimmer is gentle enough to use while they’re asleep and includes various speeds and replacement heads.
Handmade prayer flags makes for a unique gift that will provide blessings for a pregnancy, delivery or the birth of a new child. We love this set of pregnancy prayer flags, inspired by the Tibetan tradition, that shows 7 unique and vibrant acrylic paintings that are printed on organic cotton using permanent non-toxic ink.
Mid-Range Gifts (under $150)
The Eberjey Gisele pajamas is an iconic bestseller that has a tailored fit and is made out of super-soft modal jersey. It is both comfortable and stylish and will hold up great even after hundreds of washes and wears.
Treat her to a massage in the comfort zone of her own home. Having a prenatal or postpartum massage is a wonderful support physically and mentally during pregnancy, labor and the postpartum period. It will soothe aches and pains and ease pregnancy and postpartum recovery. Zeel massages are widely available across the US and provides massages on-demand available right at her doorstep.
Luxury Gifts (no expenses spared)
A pregnancy or maternity photo session makes for a wonderful gift and will capture some of the most unforgettable moments of her life. Added points for including a make-up artist and stylist to make her feel extra pampered and beautiful. For inspiration look to NYC based photographer Daisy Rey that is a master at capturing elegant and timeless portraits that will be cherished forever.
For the spare-no-expense, all-time luxury gift we’ve included a classic diamond tennis bracelet that will have her smiling long into the New Year. Enhance her style with a timeless and elegant accessory as special as she is.
