5 Unique Baby Shower Gifts for Moms to Be
My third (and final) baby shower last year was pretty epic. I was surrounded by my friends and family and we had an amazing time. I got so many gifts for baby that day and even some gifts for ME which I thought was SO nice because we are always so focused on the upcoming baby and not the mamas. I am sharing with you today some unique baby shower gifts for moms because let’s face it–they deserve some extra love too!
The baby shower invitation has arrived, and the first thing that hits you is excitement followed closely by mild panic. What in the world are you going to give the mom to be? Not all baby shower goers want to opt for traditional gifts like diapers, onesies, or bibs. If you’re one of those, consider alternative baby shower gifts for moms to be that stand out and don’t disappoint.
Pink Stork Flakes Pregnancy Bath Salt
Few moms to be will say no to the temptation of a warm bath, especially as their heavy belly makes showering a particularly unwieldy activity. Give your expectant mom the gift of a nice long soak in these relaxing bath salts. They can even double as a foot soak for aching, swollen feet.
Especially in the last trimester when mom isn’t feeling her best, Bump Boxes make an amazing baby shower gift. Packed with products from different brands, the Third Trimester Bump Box is a perfect baby shower gift to help mom feel taken care of from head to toe. Bump Boxes are also a great way for mom to try a variety of products and decide what she may want to buy again regularly.
The Shit! No One Tells You
The Sh!t No One Tells You is a tongue-in-cheek book brilliantly written for pregnant and new moms. It’s a complete guide to baby’s first year with a heaping dose of humor to go alongside real-world advice from helpful moms and dads who’ve totally been there.
For many pregnant moms, having to reduce or eliminate their coffee intake is a huge sacrifice. Mommee Coffee is an ideal baby shower gift for moms to be that really love their coffee. Mommee Coffee has half the caffeine of regular coffee, is low acid for sensitive stomachs (think morning sickness and heartburn), and is organic and fair trade.
Earth Mama Belly Butter
While science has unfortunately proven that genetics more than anything else determines whether a woman will get stretch marks or not, a good belly butter like this one from Earth Mama can dramatically reduce their appearance. More than that, stretch marks or not, every pregnant belly gets itchy as the skin stretches in the second and third trimester. This baby shower gift for moms to be will be a welcome relief to any mom hoping for a more comfortable, beautiful belly.
