Mother’s Day is a special day to celebrate the wonderful women in our lives, especially those who are about to embark on the incredible journey of motherhood!! But with so many options available, it can be challenging to find just the right present for your favorite mom-to-be. That’s why I’ve put together this Mother’s Day gift guide to help you discover the perfect gifts for expecting moms… yes, what they REALLY want. Let’s get into it!

1. Pregnancy Pillow

A pregnancy pillow is a fantastic gift for expecting moms. As the pregnancy progresses, comfort during sleep can become elusive due to a growing belly and sleepless nights. A pregnancy pillow provides much-needed support for the back and belly, helping pregnant women sleep more comfortably and wake up feeling refreshed. I love this luxe pregnancy pillow from Yana Sleep!

2. Mom Self Care Gift Basket

A thoughtfully curated mom gift basket can be a special gift that includes a variety of items for self-care and relaxation. Fill it with a Stanley 40 oz. water tumbler, magnesium bath bombs, luxurious body butter, a calming home diffuser with essential oils, and other pampering products with non-toxic ingredients. This can give your favorite mom-to-be some time to relax and unwind after a long day!

3. Theragun Mini Massager

Any expecting mother would love a personal massager to release the inevitable muscle tension that comes with carrying a baby – or two! This Theragun mini massager is ultra portable so she can keep it in her tote and is proven to relieve aches and pains, decreasing muscle soreness and tension.

4. Pregnancy Journal

An expecting mother will appreciate a pregnancy journal to document her pregnancy journey. This special keepsake allows her to jot down thoughts, feelings, and milestones throughout her pregnancy. It’s a sentimental gift that she can cherish for years to come!

5. Gift Card to Her Favorite Restaurant (Delivered!)

A gift card to her favorite restaurant is a thoughtful way to treat the expecting mama to a delicious meal without the hassle of cooking. This can be especially appreciated during the later stages of pregnancy when she may not have the energy or desire to cook for herself! Gift her a DoorDash gift card so that she can order from any local restaurant she likes and have it delivered to her doorstep.

6. Diaper Bag or Backpack

A stylish and functional diaper bag is a great gift for any expecting mom. Look for one with plenty of compartments and ease of use for all of her baby’s essentials – I especially love the backpack styles like this diaper bag from Dagne Dover, keeping her hands free for nurturing baby.

7. Chic & Sentimental Photo Frame

A beautiful photo frame is a sentimental gift that can hold a cherished memory of her pregnancy journey or new baby. I especially love the classic and luxe feel of the Aerin lacquer photo frames or the Aerin shagreen photo frames – they’re both so stylish! Include a photo from a baby shower or celebration to make it even more special.

8. Comfortable Robe and Loungewear

A comfortable new robe is always a great gift for an expecting mom. Look for pieces that are soft, breathable, and stylish, perfect for her growing belly. I lived in my Barefoot Dreams CozyChic robe and can’t get enough of the softness of Lake Pajamas – their Lake Pajamas Pima Maternity Long-Long Pajama Set would make for a perfect gift! Also, the Skims Maternity Nursing Scoop Bralette is a comfortable yet stylish nursing bra option.

9. Coffee Mug

When I was pregnant I cherished my one cup of coffee a day, and once my babies were born coffee sustained me daily! A coffee mug with a cute design or message can be a small but meaningful gift for a new mama. Look for a customizable coffee mug like this one or that features a chic design like this!

10. Personalized Letter Charm Necklace

A personalized necklace with mama’s baby initial would make for a great Mother’s Day gift for any expecting mom! I love this bubble letter initial necklace from Ariel Gordon if you know the baby’s future name. If mom is keeping the baby’s name under wraps, this puffed heart charm necklace is just as special!

11. Bump Box Subscription

A Bump Box subscription delivers monthly boxes of curated products designed specifically for expecting moms. Each box includes a variety of items such as skincare, wellness, and lifestyle products. It’s a perfect Mother’s Day gift that keeps on giving!

12. Milestone Month-to-Month Card Decks

Milestone month-to-month card decks for a new baby are a great way for expecting moms to capture important moments in their new life. These can be used for adorable photos to share with family and friends! This is also an inexpensive but meaningful gift that moms-to-be would love to not have to purchase for themselves later on 🙂

13. Gift Certificate for a Massage

Pregnancy can take a toll on a pregnant person’s body, so a gift certificate for a prenatal massage can be a much-appreciated gift. This allows her to relax and unwind while receiving a massage tailored to her unique prenatal needs.

14. Espresso Machine

An espresso machine can be a lifesaver for an expecting mom who may experience sleepless nights and fatigue! We’ve loved our Nespresso Espresso Machine with Milk Frother – it makes your home brewed coffee feel way more luxurious!

15. Cozy Self-Care Items

Treat your favorite mom-to-be to self-care items such as depuffing face masks, a gua sha face sculpting tool, an ice roller for her face and chest, lightly scented candles, and a cozy blanket like this one from Barefoot Dreams. These gifts can help her take some time for herself and recharge during her pregnancy.

16. Diaper Tote Pouch

Moms always need pouches to hold diapers, wipes, toys, medicine, makeup, tech items… you name it! A cute medium sized pouch like this pouch one from Stoney Clover can be used during her pregnancy and well after.

No matter which of these gifts you choose, the best part about Mother’s Day is showing new moms that you care! The best gifts for a pregnant mama are thoughtful gifts because that first mother’s day is just so special! Show the expectant moms you know how much she means to you and celebrating her new journey. Your thoughtful gifts will make her feel loved and appreciated during this very special time! Happy Mother’s Day!
