 The Best Gifts for Pregnant Women

We firmly believe that there’s no one who deserves more pampering and TLC than a momma-to-be. For nine months (well, actually more like 10), their bodies go through the ultimate act of endurance and perform the most incredible physical feat there is—creating new life. Not to mention the emotional and mental load they have to bear, balancing feelings of excitement, joy, anxiety, fear … sometimes all in the span of a few minutes. Point being, pregnant women are superheroes, and yes, they should be showered with praise and attention—and gifts.

No matter whether you’re shopping for a friend who just announced her pregnancy, going off-registry for a baby shower, or want to pick up something special for your pregnant partner, there’s no shortage of gifts out there that are perfect for the expecting mom. A few top tips to keep in mind: Self-care items that will make her feel cozy and pampered, think a luxe belly butter or cozy robe, are always a good move. Practical presents are good, too—a cute pair of slip-on shoes, leggings she can wear during and after pregnancy, you get the picture. You can even pick up something for her little babe that is sure to make her postpartum period a little bit easier, like a luxe swaddle or organic formula. No matter which direction you go, she’s sure to appreciate the extra thought and attention, whether the gift is for a special occasion or a “just because I think you’re incredible” gesture. And if you’re pregnant and reading this, remember that you certainly deserve to treat yourself.



A cozy robe is essential, both for lounging during pregnancy and to throw on post-partum. This is arguably one of the coziest ones there is, made of Turkish cotton for a towel-like texture that we love for being extra soft and plush. Bonus points for the fact that it has convenient pockets, and comes in a wide range of sizes.

Mutha Up All Night Eye Cream

Pregnancy insomnia is a very real thing; happily, this eye cream will make you look well-rested, even when you’re not.

When we tested it, we couldn’t believe how impressively bright and hydrated it left our under eye area. Plus, as with all of the products in this line, it’s totally pregnancy safe.

The Honest Company Organic Body Oil

Keeping your growing bump well-hydrated throughout your pregnancy is one of the best things you can do to ward off stretch marks, and this oil does exactly that.

Not to mention that it’s also safe to use on baby once he or she arrives. When we tested it, we loved how smooth and supple it left our skin, without any greasy residue.
