Mummy Monday | Mum-to-Be Gift Guide

Mum-to-Be Gift Guide

Hey there shopaholics!

Recently one of my closest friends, Michelle, announced she was pregnant with twins. As she'll be way to busy to enjoy any 'me time' for a while after the birth, I decided to pick up a few little presents for her to use while she still has the chance. And as always, I thought I'd share some of my gift ideas with you guys.
1. Boo Boo Luxury Mummy Spa Gift Set
As someone who enjoys taking a nice long, hot bath or shower, I would have totally appreciated this gorgeous Luxury Mummy Spa Gift Set while I was pregnant with Oscar! It contains a trio of truly lovely products which are safe to use when pregnant. Bliss!

2. Cussons Mum & Me Smooth & Glow Pregnancy Shampoo & Conditioner
During both my pregnancies my hair really suffered. It just looked dull and lifeless and was falling out at the slightest touch. Cussons have a range of 'bump' products for mums-to-be and I think the moisturising shampoo and conditioners would make a great gift for a pregnant friend in need of some hair TLC!

3. Baroo Nursing Pillow
When pregnant it can be really difficult to get comfy when sat in a car or armchair. This nursing pillow from Baroo would be great to support mum-to-be's neck and shoulders, and once baby arrives, it can be used as a feeding cushion and for tummy time. A truly multi-functional product!

4. Baby Powder Yankee Candle
This candle smells just like Johnson's baby powder! I love the scent and burnt this quite a lot when I was pregnant with Oscar last year. I'm pretty sure most mums-to-be would love to receive one of these as a gift!

5. Yummy Mummy Notebook & Pen
Once baby has arrived, mummy will forget just about everything, so a 'Yummy Mummy' notebook and pen is perfect for her to start writing lists of things she needs now, and will most definitely come in handy after!

6. Seascape Soothe Sleep Oil
If your pregnant friend is having trouble sleeping, then the Soothe Sleep Oil from Seascape is the gift for her! I love that this comes in a rollerball form for easy use, and is fragranced with pregnancy-safe essential oils.

7. Lily Charmed Lucky Star Necklace
If you're looking for something a little prettier to give to the mum-to-be, then a necklace from Lily Charmed could just be what you're looking for! They have some absolutely stunning designs. I personally love this 'lucky star' necklace, but there are literally loads of others to choose from.

Do you have any other suggestions for mum-to-be gifts?
If so I'd love to hear from you!

    1. Thanks Amanda :) It is really hard to buy for a mum-to-be, I agree! I think as well that people always focus on the baby, so I wanted to do the opposite and treat mum :) xx

  9. I love that these gifts are for the new mom not the new baby. Every new mom needs some pampering and time for herself. Come to think of it eery old mom need that too!
