Mother’s Day is an exciting holiday for expecting mothers, and there are a few sweet items you can buy for them to help celebrate.

Their little bundle of joy may not be arriving just yet, but that doesn’t mean pregnant mommas-to-be can’t enjoy Mother’s Day. If you want to show her that you’re thinking of her, getting her a small gift is a great way to do exactly that.

A great gift for an expecting mom is something that will help them get through those first few weeks and months when the baby is here, but it’s also nice to get them something that is more for them than the baby. Either way, they’ll be touched by your thoughtfulness.

Boxfox New Mom Set

This sweet New Mom gift box is a perfect option for an expecting mother as it’s both useful and fun. It comes with three items she’ll definitely appreciate. One is Pipette Belly Oil, which feels nice on a baby bump (and even after baby arrives).

There’s also the Fortune Telling Book For Moms-To-Be, which is a fun book that can help clue moms into secrets about their baby. Lastly, there’s a Chaparral Studio “Mama” keychain, which she’ll use for years.

Lovevery Play Kit Subscription

The Lovevery Play Kit Subscription is for a baby, but if you think about it, it also benefits mom as well (if the baby is busy playing, mom gets some time to herself!). This is a really great subscription service for parents: Play kits are delivered every few months and are tailored to baby’s age.

Each play kit comes packed with toys and items that are meant to stimulate baby intellectually and encourage independent and creative play. Instead of getting toys that make lots of noise or music, you’ll get wooden toys that help baby learn. Everything is really well thought out and the little ones love the toys.

It comes with belly butter, body lotion, and body wash, which are clean and non-toxic. They’re made without sulfates, parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, petrolatum, and synthetic fragrances, so they’re ideal for sensitive skin.

Moms deserve all the love, and this clean, nontoxic bath and body gift set delivers. With safe, science-backed ingredients specially chosen for expecting and postpartum mamas’ skin, these items form the perfect restorative ritual. This 4 piece set includes 8 fluid ounces of Relaxing...

If you’re just looking to get them something really small and inexpensive, then this Earth Mama Organic Peaceful Mama Tea is a thoughtful gift. A caffeine-free herbal tea, this is a mix of citrus and chamomile.

It’s meant to be calming and relaxing and to promote sleep, which pregnant women could definitely use more of. This will also be nice when the baby is here and they really need some relaxation help.

The Wonder Weeks

The Wonder Weeks

The right parenting book can be extremely helpful, both while preparing for your baby to come and while they’re here. As a parent myself, I can say that The Wonder Weeks was an absolute godsend.

The book goes into detail about what goes on when baby is going through a developmental leap, which happens every few weeks or months. During that time, baby can be extra fussy, cranky, hungry, and can have trouble sleeping. The book helps you understand exactly what’s going on and why they’re acting the way they are, and it’s both helpful and very interesting to know what your baby is learning and how they’re developing.

Noodle & Boo Starter Kit

Noodle & Boo

This Noodle & Boo Starter Kit is an excellent baby skincare set that a new mom will love to use with her little one. It comes with body wash, extra-gentle shampoo, and lotion, and everything is dermatologist and pediatrician approved.

These products have the most perfect new baby smell, and they’re very moisturizing and great for sensitive skin. I use these for my toddler, and they make her skin super soft and last for a while.

Freshly Picked Classic Park Belt Bag

Freshly Picked

This Freshly Picked Classic Park Belt Bag is both stylish and functional. It’s big enough to fit all of the essentials, but small enough to stay lightweight and simple. And because it’s worn around the waist, it’s really convenient and leaves your hands free.

This is great for anyone, but especially for new moms who are spending time running after their little ones. It’s a good companion with a diaper bag, which can be bulky and heavy, and isn’t as versatile.

Bearsland Maternity Sweater

Comfortable clothes are an absolute must for pregnant women and new moms alike. This Bearsland Maternity Sweater is comfortable and roomy enough to be worn during pregnancy, and then can easily be worn afterwards as well.

It’s also a nursing sweater: There are concealed zip cut-outs on either side that make it easy to breastfeed without lifting up the entire sweatshirt. It’s fleecy and soft, and it’s a really versatile style.

Pearhead Rustic First Year Picture Frame

This sweet Pearhead Rustic First Year Picture Frame is perfect for the new mom who is ready to show off their baby. There are 12 small frames here, one for a photo from each month of the first year of baby’s life. In a rustic wood frame, this is a versatile piece that would look nice hanging in any home.
