2014 Holiday Gift Guide: for your pregnant friends

(or yourself!)
Hi! How’s the day going? Hope you’re having a lovely Monday. This is the last 2014 gift guide: gifts for your expecting friends (or yourself if you have a little one on the way!). Before I had Liv, I was stumped as to what to gift my friends who were pregnant at the time. Now that the time has come and passed, I have some fun ideas for this holiday season as a way to make her feel loved and pampered before the new addition arrives.

 holiday gift guide for mamas

The Snoogle aka the mother of all pregnancy pillows.

A For Two Fitness top or hoodie

-A spa certificate. These are always a wonderful (and appreciated gift!), and there are a lot of prenatal-specific services she can choose from. A facial, mani/pedi, or prenatal massage are usually glorious. 

-A wrap. I really loved the Baby Ktan when Liv was a newborn, and then transitioned to the Babyhawk and the Ergo as she got bigger. 

-A comfy pair of pajamas or pretty robe. When you’re in the newborn days, it’s rare to get out of pajamas or the robe (unless you somehow manage to do it, I applaud you haha). I got this robe before Liv was born, and still use it. It has soft, luxurious fabric and is a great price for the quality. 

Tree branch or mom necklace. These dogeared necklaces are so beautiful!

Initial ring. I got this ring from Etsy, and it’s one of my favorite pieces of jewelry. I hope to be able to add the initial of our future kiddo (fingers crossed), and stack them together. 

-Movie tickets. These are a great gift before the baby is born! Going to the movies (whenever I wanted) was something that I didn’t really take advantage of pre-baby, but definitely missed during the newborn days. 

-Plan a fun friend date or early dinner night. Experiences always make wonderful gifts. Plan some fun girl time for just the two of you!

-An amazing DIY gift: homemade coupons for a shower and/or a nap after the baby is here. 😉

Any ideas to share? I would love to hear them!

    Okay. I LOVE my snoogle with my whole heart. MUST have for a prego. I would also agree with a date night, or just a night out with the ladies. OR I know it’s weird, but a Whole Foods gift card so she can binge on healthy delights.

      YES YES YES My only regret with my Snoogle is that I didn’t get it earlier in my first pregnancy. Since having my daughter, that has been my go-to gift for friends and family who are expecting.

        same! i’m like “you’re pregnant?! here’s a snoogle!”

    If I have another kid, I’d get one of these. Both for the end of pregnancy, labor and to wear after baby is born.


    (I’m not affiliated in any way, I just think they are cute!)

    Great gift guide! I’ve definitely given a few pedicure certificates to pregnant lady friends. Seems like they need the pampering. Hope you are having a nice Monday! 🙂

    You say fingers crossed, and remember the trouble you had….is this foreshadowing? 😉

    • Fitnessista on December 15, 2014 at 9:37 pm

      haha no! i just mean that when we do start trying, i hope it’s a little easier, or that it happens at all

    What a nice idea! Thanks for putting this together. Not having been pregnant myself this really helps with me with some future gift planning.

    Great list – i would have lived everything on it while I was pregnant. Actually I would still live those initial rings – such a cute idea

    I LOVE the Training For Two tanks! I am 27 weeks along and wish I could justify buying one for myself. They are totally adorable, but expensive.

    • Fitnessista on December 15, 2014 at 9:35 pm

      they’re definitely pricey. i ended up wearing my tank tops so much, though! (i even got a plain one i continued to wear post baby haha)
