Earth Mama Angel Baby – a Little Something for Mama-to-be — This 5-piece gift set includes ginger and lime castile soap with matching aromatherapy spray, both of which battle the unsettling nausea that tends to accompany pregnancy in the morning. Your beloved mom-to-be will also enjoy a luxurious body butter to use in combination with an all-natural oil, which works to soothe irritated and itchy skin from the formation of stretch marks.
Lastly, the hardworking woman can put on a pair of her favorite pajamas and slippers and enjoy a cup of Earth Mama Angel Baby’s Organic Morning Wellness Tea. This neat package comes in a cute purse and the ingredients are all-natural and safe to use during pregnancy.

Even without having to carry around the extra weight of a baby, we tend to suffer from normal aches, pains, stiffness, headaches, and backaches. However, when you’re walking for two—or even three—the daily pain you became accustomed to dealing with increases tenfold. A great way to alleviate the pain is a prenatal massage. One of the many benefits of a prenatal massage is the reduced stress on weight-bearing joints, which boosts blood and lymph circulation. This relaxes the nervous system, resulting in better sleep.

Chances are you’re shopping for someone who is always on the go. Therefore, that girl’s poor feet could use a little R&R. Comfortable, cushioned, and fur-lined slippers like these UGGS provide the perfect amount of support and warmth for swollen feet. They’re a match made in heaven for expecting moms. Your inner fashionista of your mother-to-be will appreciate the luxurious design too.
- Lounge Around in Comfort and Style

Whether it’s a birthday gift, anniversary gift, Christmas gift, or even a baby shower gift, a set of maternity lounge wear will never go out of style. They’re soft, warm, and can be worn around the house, to the grocery store or an OB/GYN appointment. If you’re unsure of what maternity styles she may like, you can’t go wrong with yoga pants and a hoodie. Chances are she’s been meaning to get another pair anyway.

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Why not surprise them with a beautiful piece of jewelry? A little blue box is sure to put a smile on her face. If you’re on a budget, opt for a statement necklace with matching earrings. When shopping for women, you can never go wrong with accessories.

It’s a magical moment for an expecting mother to see her baby in a sonogram for the first time, a moment that shouldn’t be tucked into a wallet or a dusty photo album. Instead, use the sonogram and turn it into an unforgettable gift with a frame. It’s just one of the many memories you’ll share together as a family.
