Alternative Gifts for Expecting Mothers

When a new baby is on its way mothers are often inundated with thoughtful gifts for the little one, but what about mum? The magnificent woman who is putting all of her energy into bringing new life into the world.

Baby showers are notoriously gift heavy for the baby, but expecting mothers need just as much love and attention as the imminent newborn.

If you’re looking to buy a truly thoughtful gift that will make the expectant mother’s day, we’ve listed some alternative gift ideas that will make the new mum feel special.


Pregnancy Photoshoot

Gift vouchers for a pregnancy photo shoot can be a wonderful way to mark the incredible experience of pregnancy.

Celebrating the miracle of her body and giving her something to treasure forever is a wonderful way to show the expecting mum what an experience it is, and how much her body has transformed to create this new life.

Many celebrities have marked their pregnancies with a portrait. From Demi Moore’s classic black and white shot to Beyonce’s flower crown Instagram post. Make the expectant mother feel like a goddess.


Mum-to-Be Spa Day

Carrying around a tiny human is hard work, so why not spoil your friend or relative with a mum-to-be spa day.

While the usual pampering can be quite limited due to the precautions that new mothers have to take, many luxury spas now create pregnancy packages to support mothers in relaxing and easing those aches and pains.

Besides, an experience of getting away from it all for a day can help the expecting mum come away feeling rejuvenated.

From a foot massage and a mani-pedi to floating in a warm pool surrounded by incense. Help the mum-to-be escape for a while and enjoy some peaceful time to herself before the newborn arrives.


Pregnancy Yoga

If your friend or relative has just found out she’s expecting purchasing sessions of pregnancy yoga can be a practical gift that can support her throughout the pregnancy.

As pregnancy yoga is often a little more expensive than traditional yoga classes, this gift could be a real treat to the expecting mother and can help keep her health and wellbeing in top condition during the pregnancy.

Pregnancy yoga comes with many benefits, from easing aches and pains, as well as improving breathing and stamina during the birth itself.


Post Baby Makeover

While many people buy expecting mothers beauty or skincare products before the birth of the baby, getting a pamper session post-baby could support mum in getting back to feeling herself after the birth.

Whether you purchase vouchers from a local spa or salon, or take her for a girls day out, giving the new mum something to look forward to after she’s been through the trials of labour and weeks of sleepless nights could make her feel more human.
