Best Gifts for soon-to-be Moms
The Christmas lists of expectant mothers might be a bit longer than usual, and probably different than her past Christmas lists. To help you with your shopping, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best ideas for the soon-to-be moms in your life.
The pregnant woman in your life needs a robot vacuum. Actually, everybody needs a robot vacuum, but especially soon-to-be moms. But vacuuming can be strenuous on a pregnant woman depending on the thickness of the carpet and the quality of the vacuum. Bending over for long periods of time and pushing a heavy machine through thick carpet can be exhausting. While she’s likely suffering from sleep loss, weight changes, aches and pains, a shifting center of gravity, and preparing for the baby, a robot vacuum can help her with one less thing she needs to worry about.
Owlet Baby Monitor
If you could wave a magic wand and give her more sleep, she would probably take that, but give her the next best thing by giving her an Owlet Smart Sock. Help her rest easier by letting the Owlet Smart Sock keep an extra watch over baby during the night. With an Owlet Smart Sock, mom can simply reach over and check her app to see her baby’s live readings. It is also designed to notify you if those levels go out of the preset range. Oh yeah, mom wants this for Christmas this year.
It may seem too simple, it may seem too easy, but a mom can never have too many diapers. Even if she’s a cloth diaper-er, you can help her with this less-pretty part of parenthood. Getting her a variety of sizes would be super thoughtful, for it isn’t too uncommon that a middle-of-the-night blowout makes a parent realize that baby needs to move up a diaper size, but they can’t easily run to the store at 2AM. Trust me, they’ll be grateful.
Late-night feedings, early morning insomnia, or lazy-afternoon snuggles are all made better by a super comfy, soft, huge blanket. Chunky knit blankets are super trendy right now but also super soft, warm and cozy. You can’t go wrong with a plush microfleece blanket, either. Baby is going to get lots of baby blankets, but mom would be happy with a mommy blanket, too.
Restaurant gift cards
Gift cards may not seem like the most thoughtful gift, but to a pregnant woman, they are extremely thoughtful. Sometimes cooking is difficult. Various smells can trigger nausea, and when she’s already extremely busy, sometimes it just sounds good to eat some good food from a good restaurant. These will also come in handy when baby has arrived and she’s recovering.
