10 Gifts any Mom-to-be Would Love: #shopsmall edition

Shopping for a pregnant Mom-to-be can be hard! You don’t just want to get them something “usual”, they’re PREGNANT, they deserve something more unique!

I love shopping small businesses and supporting local and handmade whenever possible. So today I’m sharing with you some of my favorite #shopsmall gift ideas for the pregnant mama in your life.


10 Gifts any Mom-to-be would Love: #shopsmall edition - Pinterest


Celebrate the Mom-to-be and her new role as “Mama” with a beautiful piece of jewelry you know she’ll treasure forever. I LOVE these baby boy/girl lockets or a simple charm necklace.

Give Mom something more useful, yet unique…how about a luxury birthing gown? What new mom wouldn’t want her very own gown instead of those ugly hospital gowns?

Maternity clothes! Mom deserves a nice new outfit, as she’s probably tired of the few she has in her size now. You can get her a funny tee shirt or something beautiful.

Getting ready for baby can be stressful! Take the stress out of finding the right diaper for baby with a Diaper Sampler Package. Mom will appreciate that she can try a variety of diaper brands in ONE box.

These ‘sleep pods’ are a hot baby item right now (it’s organic, too!), and I found one from a small shop! I love supporting small businesses over giant corporations any day.


 Organic co-sleeper


Subscription boxes are all the rage now. This one has curated baby items (clothes, toys and accessories) by age! All Moms love dressing their babies up in fancy new clothes…make it easy for her!


 Smock Box newborn boxes


Finding a baby book that is easy to use, functional and pretty isn’t an easy task. But this Coco Coos Modern Baby Book may have done it!

Moms that have been pregnant know that compression socks can be a lifesaver. Why can’t they be fun, too? Give your pregnant friend the gift of less swelling in her poor feet with a pair of these stylish Lily Trotters compression socks.

There’s nothing more Christmas-y than a Christmas ornament for the tree. You can celebrate her pregnancy with a personalized Christmas ornament! This will be something to look back on fondly through the years.

Our Mom-friends in our Instagram community were adamant that the best gift they received when they were pregnant was the gift of a prenatal (or postnatal) massage. What sore, aching mom-to-be wouldn’t love some pampering? Find a local spa near her that offers prenatal massages and get her a gift certificate. This is one gift that definitely wouldn’t go unused!
