Celebrating Mother’s Day goes without saying for expecting mothers. Even if the baby isn’t due to arrive just yet, you can still make Mother’s Day special for Moms-to-Be. Finding the perfect gift can be a little tricky for expecting mothers because it’s tempting to purchase a gift for the baby. As much as baby gifts are appreciated year-round, try to make this day about her.
If your pregnant partner is having a baby for the first time, here are several gift ideas that are sure to brighten her day.
1. A card
Moms-to-be just want to feel acknowledged. A personalized card is a simple way to make her feel special on Mother’s Day. Don’t settle for any kind of card though. Papyrus has hundreds of unique Mother’s Day cards to choose from, including cards for moms-to-be.
2. Gift card
In addition to a card, you should also include a gift card to one of her favorite places to eat, shop or pamper herself. If you’re feeling extra generous, get her a Visa gift card so she can spend it where she pleases.
The easiest way into a woman’s heart is jewelry. Watches, earrings, and statement necklaces are staple accessories in every woman’s jewelry stash. If you know she wears multiple pieces of jewelry on a regular basis, costume jewelry is a good route to go. However, if she tends to wear more demure pieces, consider purchasing a little something from a jeweler.
4. Spa Day
From back aches to skin care woes, pregnancy takes a toll on a woman’s body. To mitigate these issues, surprise her with a full spa day that includes a prenatal massage, facial treatment or both. Locate spas in your area that specialize in servicing pregnant women. Also, be sure to book your appointment in advance.
5. Total body pillow

Your partner (and her back) will thank you a million times for this gift! Total body pillows provide comfort and support to the back and tummy, resulting in a more restful sleep. You can find these pillows at several retailers including Target, Walmart and Bed Bath and Beyond, to name a few.
6. Pregnancy Belly Casting Kit
You only get one First Mom-to-be Mother’s Day. To commemorate this momentous occasion, purchase a belly casting kit. The belly cast can be saved as a keepsake for years to come. After decorating the cast with paint, write a special message on the inside of the cast for your little one from you and your partner.
7. Special gift from the baby

If you really want to bring tears to her eyes, give her a gift on behalf of the baby. A gift from the baby will feel much more heartfelt because of the connection that is drawn. Custom jewelry is a good option for this type of gift. Not sure where to look? Etsy has a wide selection of custom jewelry designers, as well as other custom designers, for you to choose from.
8. Make the day about her
Most expecting mothers don’t really ask for much on Mother’s Day. They just want a bit of recognition! Make the day about her by giving your partner the day off around the house. Whatever mom wants is what mom gets. You may feel a little tired after running around the whole day, but nothing can replace the joy your partner will feel knowing that you made this day simply perfect for her.
