The best gifts for pregnant women no doubt vary. Each expectant mother's journey is unique, though many common joys and nuisances are shared. For me, pampering services like prenatal massages and facials rank the highest, as do sentimental jewelry gifts to honor my precious babies.
With the body changing to support the womb, any mama-to-be will be navigating physical, emotional, and mental changes that begin her profound shift into motherhood. Whether your giftee is a first-time mom or she's done this before (which makes another pregnancy all the more trying, as I'm now learning in my second trimester with a toddler on my hands), pamper your pregnant pal with gifts that will bring a sparkle to her trimesters and ease the discomfort of a growing belly.
Hydration, sleep, and skin changes are frequent concerns, so I picked a few practical presents, like beauty and wellness products, along with chic maternity clothes, from dresses to leggings and supportive activewear, that'll keep her stylish and comfortable.
If you'd rather spoil her with something simply beautiful, like a cozy pair of clogs or a beautiful cotton pajama set that'll keep her feeling like herself, I have gift ideas for that, too. From smaller items and newborn essentials you can bundle into an elegant gift basket, to jewelry she'll treasure forever (my necklaces, bracelets, and ring stacks are filled with meaningful odes to my daughters), future moms will not be disappointed. Ahead, 25 gift ideas for the pregnant woman in your life.
Pima Maternity Long-Long Set
Lake's best-selling Pima cotton pajamas are cult-loved, and this new-season beige stripe style is the ultimate gift for expecting mothers who favor neutrals. More than soft to the touch and comforting, the snap buttons make nursing or pumping a breeze once her newborn arrives.
Custom Name Necklace
One of the most thoughtful jewelry gifts for a new mom? A nameplate necklace with her bundle of joy's name—she'll treasure it forever.
Air Angel Gel Moisturizer
Pregnancy often wreaks havoc on the skin. In my case, my dermis is parched beyond belief, leaving me desperate for new elixirs. Enter: Dieux's new Air Angel Gel Moisturizer—an excellent gift for any expecting mom seeking extra hydration.
Zeitgeist Tweed Baby Carrier
Artipoppe's baby carriers are peak luxury for new moms (and one of the easiest to get on and off, in my opinion). Any pregnant woman will love one of the label's stunning designs for keeping her precious bundle close, like this cold-weather-ready tweed houndstooth version made of cashmere, organic cotton, and mulberry silk.
Care for Pregnancy: 3rd Trimester & Labor
Prepare the expecting mama in your life for the incredible physical changes she'll experience in the third trimester as well as labor with Bodily's new research-backed gift set. It includes an organic oil-based belly balm (that also makes for a great massage oil for labor and nipple balm when breastfeeding), a luxe eye mask, and top doula-recommended tips and tools for labor and delivery.
The Nest Robe
A luxuriously soft robe is a maternity wardrobe staple. This knee-length silhouette is designed to be worn during all stages of pregnancy and postpartum, featuring a self-tie and drop-in front pockets.
Belly Oil Duo
A growing belly means tight skin and the potential for stretch marks. This elegant set is created specifically for pre and postpartum skin, featuring two special blends of botanical oils to deeply nourish.
The Vegan Stretch Leather Legging
Leggings are a maternity mainstay. But for the pregnant woman ready to switch things up from her cozier home versions for an outing, go for this luxe vegan leather over-the-bump style in a beautifully rich chocolate brown hue.
Plush Bath Sheet
Likely an overlooked but simple gift to make daily rituals, like showering, more luxe (and much easier) with a growing belly: an extra-large towel. Trust me, it's one of my number-one tips! Onsen's plush bath sheet has become my personal favorite, made in Turkey of the softest Aegean cotton.
Personally, there is no greater pregnancy gift than that of a prenatal massage. You can't go wrong with a Marriott Bonvoy gift card when treating any mother-to-be to her dream service, as she's sure to find a peaceful and luxurious spa at local hotels in her area, from The Ritz-Carlton and St. Regis to the Edition, W, and Moxy.
Custom Fingerprint Coin
Azlee's diamond-adorned custom coin charm is a unique and splurge-worthy yet incredibly sentimental gift for new mothers, though you'll have to wait until the baby comes to give it to her. Don't worry; it'll be worth the delay and, indeed, become a family heirloom that's forever treasured.
Simply submit a photo of the baby's fingerprint with your purchase, and the team will connect directly to ensure a flawless customization process.
Boston Genuine Shearling Clog
Comfy shoes are paramount for pregnant feet. It doesn't get chicer in chilly weather than these all-over shearling clogs with a large gold-tone buckle.
The Sarah Dress
During pregnancy, it's a serious struggle for me to put together an outfit that's stylish, makes me feel confident, and is perfectly comfortable. This Bumpsuit dress is one of the few pieces that check all the boxes—it's easy to throw on, feels just special enough for a dinner out thanks to the one-shoulder, and is incredibly soft and stretchy without feeling too thin.
64 oz. Quencher H2.0 FlowState Tumbler
Hydration is so important for mama and baby. This new, limited-edition Stanley tumbler, which holds a chug-worthy 64 ounces, feels like a fanciful way to keep the water flowing all day.
Pampering gifts are among the best for pregnant women, especially those that help to nurture her skin (which is undoubtedly going through it). So, why not treat her to a relaxing facial at one of Heyday's many locations around the U.S.?
Long Sleeve Fuzzy Romper
7AM Enfant is a favorite among parents for stylish and well-made diaper bags, stroller accessories, and much more. This season, the label has debuted its new Comfywear collection featuring ultra-cozy pieces crafted from 100% recycled materials—perfect for the expecting mom fixated on adorably wee newborn clothes.
Amethyst Bubble Huggie Earrings
Birthstone baubles are incredibly sentimental for any mom. Go the sleek and modern route to honor a newborn with Ashley Zhang's latest bubble collection, available in any stone and various designs, including bracelets, rings, and necklaces.
CloudSoft Adjustable Maternity Pillow
Between aching hips, a sore back, and a growing belly, any mom-to-be could use the extra support of a pregnancy pillow for a good night's sleep, naps, or lounging on the couch. This ergonomic design features a memory foam and microfiber fill, a silky bamboo cover, and a removable arm to support whatever position you like, which is key, as I've found several pregnancy pillows to be quite cumbersome and difficult to move when changing positions. You can even separate it entirely and use it as a travel-friendly body pillow.
The Popcorn Baby Blanket
AU Baby's clean, sustainable baby collection is filled with gorgeous gift options for modern parents. Go the classic route with a baby blanket, like this timeless design knit from wonderfully soft, 100% plant-dyed yarn featuring a deeply textured, lofted popcorn stitch for the ultimate cozy comfort.
City Wide Leg Pant
Perhaps the mom-to-be in your life isn't a leggings gal. Enter: these elegantly ribbed wide-leg pants she can dress up for work or down while nesting at home.
Zodiac 18-Karat Gold Bracelet
Another way to honor new life? With a zodiac accessory, like this delicate chain-link band strung with a polished charm depicting the baby-to-be's sign.
Cozy Knit Genuine Shearling Slipper
My Ugg slippers are life, pregnant or not. This knitted pair is the perfect pick-me-up to feel a little more stylish when my feet feel extra fatigued with the weight of a growing belly.
Help alleviate labor and delivery stress by gifting an expecting mama with this sleek and spacious hospital bag. This new-season color will surely sell out like many of the brand's other cult items, including two diaper bags I use regularly and constantly get compliments on.
Signature Hemmed Sheet Set
People warn about the sleepless nights with a newborn, but catching zzz's while pregnant can be equally as turbulent (in my case, very!). Buttery soft sheets have gone a long way for my improving sleep while carrying my second child (I also splurged on an entirely new king bed, comforter, and duvet set—but that’s neither here nor there), and Boll & Branch's signature set is my absolute favorite—oh, and how good is this new cream color?
Coral Reef Bib and Burp Cloth Set
Newborn life is filled with unexpected spit-ups and beyond. Prepare any soon-to-be mother with a darling burp cloth and bib set. It doesn't get cuter than this whimsical coral reef motif, constructed with a buttery soft cotton terry layer on the back, which is absorbent yet elegant.
