Chocolate is an obvious choice and no self respecting mum-to-be will turn her nose up at this one! Might I suggest something decadent, creamy and highly calorific? Maybe even personalised. Many high street retailers offer an array of luscious delights from huge bars to lavish boxes of exquisite fancies.
Maternity slogan tops, if you know her well, show her you care by coming up with a unique phrase or private joke…one of my favourites is “Does my Bump look big in this?” Mine certainly did!
Aromatherapy Pregnancy skincare gift set. Treat her to a selection of the gorgeous pampering products on offer, from a stretch mark elixir to fragrant pregnancy bath foam infused with essences of geranium to encourage relaxation.
Belly Casting Kits, a modern twist on the portrait, a keepsake to keep forever. Many mums put them on the wall to greet their guests! Or frighten them, depending on their nervous disposition!
A Special cuddly toy…did you know that if a mum-to-be sleeps close to a particular soft toy then her scent remains on the toy and is the perfect comforter for new bub? Try it.
Cosy Maternity Waterfall Cardigan to keep out Christmas chills. Perhaps a unique designer maternity top to turn heads. Either is ideal in a bright cheerful colour to brighten up a dull day…a funky alternative is a maternity poncho, arms free and stylish!
A funky and useful maternity baby change bag. Something a little edgy like an alternative maternity bag that doubles as a handbag for a style conscious mum-to-be .
Did you know…?
