A gift to a pregnant woman can be associated not only with pregnancy. Today, a pregnant woman lives a full life. Therefore, it is important to remember that pregnant women can and even need to give gifts for their birthday, for the new year, for March 8! And of course just like that!
If you can please a future mother with a gift, then you will not only cheer her up, but also make several people pleasant at once (mother, and therefore her baby). The choice of a gift is best approached practically — the way it is done in America. There, a pregnant woman makes a wish list, and incoming guests buy something from this list.
Keep in mind that all pregnant women are different — one will want something for herself, her beloved, and the other, on the contrary, will want something right for baby. When choosing a gift, you need to take into account many criteria — the hobbies and passions of the woman herself, prosperity in the family, and so on. There is also a list of dubious gifts — for example, trendy stilettos. After all, after giving birth, a young mother is unlikely to be able to use them.
Remembering the belief that things for the baby are not bought in advance, we will consider only those surprises that will be pleasant for the expectant mother.
Firstly, the most important thing is the health of the pregnant woman. And what is health without a healthy and full sleep? Therefore, the best gift for a pregnant woman would be pillow for pregnant and feeding. Choosing in as a gift for a pregnant woman, you save her health and the health of the unborn baby.
Secondly, a good gift for a pregnant girlfriend or wife is cosmetics, in particular, cream for stretch marks. It is useful to a woman in position already starting from the third month of pregnancy. Moreover, it needs a lot, and its cost is high. The second option could be books or a subscription to some courses. After all, a woman on maternity leave has a lot of free time — why not devote it to learning some new information?
Thirdly, household appliances will be an excellent gift for a pregnant woman, for example, for the new year. In a house with a baby, they will come in handy: a good washing vacuum cleaner, a blender, an air humidifier, a double boiler, a dishwasher and a washing machine, a juicer, a radio or video baby monitor, and electronic scales.
Fourth, knowing the hobbies of a pregnant woman, you can easily choose a suitable gift certificate for her. Such options are offered today by many stores — and household appliances, and cosmetics, and underwear, and goods for newborns. It is advisable to choose a certificate with a long expiration date — so that the expectant mother is not forced to make any purchases on it hastily. If the option with underwear is more suitable for you, then take into account the specifics of the woman’s position — pregnant women need elastic, pull-up and comfortable underwear. Such gifts are perfect for a pregnant woman’s birthday.
If a woman is active, then she will certainly be delighted with a subscription to yoga. By the way, such activities will only benefit the unborn baby. A ticket to a performance, cinema or exhibition can also be chosen as a gift. It is clear that passing performances must be extremely positive, so horror films are definitely taboo here.
After giving birth, the expectant mother will certainly need a beautiful and practical backpack for walking with her baby. Its dimensions should not be too large — it should have enough space for diapers, bottles, toys and a set of change of clothes. The backpack unloads the mother’s hands, making her movements with the child as comfortable as possible. There are plenty of options to choose from — from classic leather to ultra-sporty, as well as soft plush children’s options or, on the contrary, glamorous girlish ones.
If funds allow, you can give the expectant mother a vacation ticket. In this case, it is better to choose a boarding house or a sanatorium near your home. After all, doctors do not recommend pregnant women to make long flights or to change the climate zone drastically. Outdoor recreation is able to perfectly restore strength, get rid of the unpleasant sensations of toxicosis, take a break from domestic problems and the bustle of the city. When choosing a holiday home, be sure to ask about the availability of proper medical support there — after all, pregnancy, even on vacation, should be under control.
In the event that you value not the practicality of the gift, but the impressions it brings, give the expectant mother a photo session. Such a surprise will not leave anyone indifferent, because the photographs taken are a memory for many years. And high-quality photos are a guarantee of beautiful and lasting memories.
You can also choose (in the market or on the Internet) a high-quality and cool maternity t‑shirt with slogans. By the way, if for some reason the assortment does not suit you or if you want to be creative, then you will need a plain T‑shirt, on which experts will apply any pattern that you want.
An excellent option would be a special pillow for pregnant women. It contributes to the maximum comfort of a woman during sleep, and is also absolutely safe, because it is made of hypoallergenic materials. Such a gift will become a real manifestation of care on the part of a loved one, and it will allow the expectant mother to remember what deep sleep is.
