Shopping for a pregnant woman can be tough. If you’ve never been pregnant, it’s hard to wrap your head around all the restrictions placed on the average pregnant woman.
Some gifts you would think would be great for a woman who’s expecting may actually be unsafe or impractical. If there’s a special mom-to-be on your shopping list this holiday season, save the baby gifts for next year, and treat her to something that’s all about her.
Whether she’s in her first trimester or the final countdown, she’s sure to appreciate a bit of extra pampering.
1. Mambino Organics Bun in the Oven Skincare Set
Made without parabens or sulfates, this nourishing and moisturizing skin care line will give her one less thing to worry about.
Product Review: This was a great set and everything lasted a long time, so I did not need to buy several different kinds. They all smell amazing and I felt like I was getting pampered. By Amazon Customer
2. Leachro Pregnancy Pillow
Help your favorite preggo get some blissful sleep… at least until she has to run to the bathroom again.
Product Review: Overall a great product, has helped me sleep better. I’m 36 weeks and can’t sleep without it now. I was using a big pile of pillows before, and this stays behind my back a lot more effectively. When I first started using it the part that goes under my head was too thick and gave me neck pain, but after a week or so it smooshed down to a more comfortable height. By Amazon Customer
3. Wusic Womb Music Heartbeat Baby Monitor
This gadget is so freaking cool. It allows mama to check on her baby’s heartbeat without visiting the doctor, which is key in the early stages of pregnancy when baby isn’t moving around yet. There’s even a cable splitter so daddy can tune into the magical sound of heartbeats at the same time.
Product Review: It says to test on your own heartbeat first and go from there. That worked immediately. So I put coconut oil on my belly and went in for the heartbeat and heard that right away too! Two jacks for a pair of earbuds for both husband and myself. Super awesome, compact and portable. Great peace of mind and easily something you can become addicted to doing. Don’t obsess! It’s awesome.

5. Preggatinis Drink Mix Book
Just because she can’t have alcohol doesn’t mean she can’t kick back with a delicious mock-tail.
Product Review: I bought for my sister when she was pregnant with her first child. She loved this book and used it to make her nightly “Preggatinis” and still uses it. Even my brother-in-law has a few favorite recipes. By Amazon Customer

Does the mom-to-be depend on you to keep her laughing through the thick of it? This pregnancy activity book is not only hilarious; it will also stand out in a pile of onesies gifted at your friend’s baby shower.
Product Review: This is a must for any pregnant woman. This is the best book. it makes you laugh and smile and keeps you entertained. Seriously, this book is amazing. It gets you. It’s like your best friend who knows exactly what youre going through and every page, you just want to shout out, “I know right!” and the games are fun and keep your mind busy! By Amazon Customer

Product Review: My wife loved this and it got me brownie points for a week! The preggie pops worked very well! Even the elastic belt, she uses it more than the ones she bought. Highly recommend! By Amazon Customer
8. MadeMother Pregnancy Compression Socks
During your friend’s pregnancy, blood will be flowing at a higher volume, which can cause discomfort (especially during long car rides). These compression socks reduce swelling when your buddy’s belly gets balloon-sized.
Product Review: I am a big fan of these. I am 8 months pregnant and a little bit uncomfortable these days, However, these socks really helped the swelling in my lower legs and feet. I really appreciated that, and they are quite comfortable. I would certainly buy these again if they were just a tad bit cheaper. By Amazon Customer
9. Fertile Mind Belly Belt Combo Kit
She has already sacrificed margaritas and soft cheeses (how tragic!), but with this belly belt, she won’t have to give up her favorite jeans just yet.
Product Review: I bought this product when I was around 26 weeks pregnant and could no longer button my jeans. I couldn’t find any maternity jeans I was happy with, so I had to look for alternatives. I’m now 38 weeks and still using it! I expect to be able to use it right up until the end. While I see that this would be great for someone who wears dress pants with the option of the 2 slide-type bands, I haven’t used those at all. I found the pieces of fabric to cover your underwear pretty useless as well. By Amazon Customer

10. Kiwi Maternity Pre-Packed Maternity Hospital Bag
The only things you’ll need to add to this hospital-ready bag that’s full of post-delivery essentials are cozy pajamas and an outfit for the baby.
Product Review: I bought this bag for my wife and she loved it! It has EVERYTHING you need from toothbrush, contact cases, snacks, eye mask, socks, stress ball and it even includes Thank You cards and nursing pads which she didn’t even think about bringing. It saved me and my wife so much time/stress thinking of everything we would need to pack for the delivery. She also loves the color and the quality of the bag. It’s definitely something you can use again later. This would also make the perfect gift to give to an expectant mom. Totally love this purchase and would recommend it! By Amazon Customer

Product Review: Used it for a cruise after I developed severe allergies to my go-to motion sickness tablet. This worked brilliantly. I was on four cruises in a week and felt great. The one time that I decided I would take a break from it – I immediately got a headache so I quickly put it back on again. By Amazon Customer
12. Dearfoam Slippers
Wrap her swollen feet in these slippers made of durable, high-density foam. These babies are the ultimate combo of comfort and style.
Product Review: Took three tries to find a slipper the right size, with sufficient sole depth to be comfortable and protective. These slippers fill the bill perfectly. Size is perfect. I really like them and would buy again if needed, however given the sturdiness of the shoe and the excellent manufacturing, I doubt I’ll need to. Too bad! By Amazon Customer
13. Crib Dribbler
There’s not actually a giant hamster feeder inside it’s just a comical box that you can fill with real baby gifts. Order one here for
Product Review: The dribbler actually holds quite a bit and it takes my wife a long time to pump enough breastmilk to fill it, so we usually just mix baby energy drink in to get it all the way filled. It lasts for hours though, so it’s an absolute life saver when something happens that we can’t take the little one to daycare. By Amazon Customer
14. An Adult Coloring Book
Some of the coloring pages in this book include: Congratulations on Your New Vajayjay, Potty Like a Rock Star and Wine Rhymes with Friday. You’re welcome.
Product Review: Beautiful pictures for the most part. I can wait to get started coloring them. One thing I did notice was the forward to the book – the grammar was “cute” and it did relieve my stress knowing that there are others that struggle with grammar and punctuation. By Amazon Customer
15. Go the F%#K to Sleep Book
Product Review: This is the BEST BABY SHOWER GIFT EVER- If the parents-to-be have a good personality! That and a DNA test and your the hit of the baby shower! I laughed throughout this whole book, it was hysterical!! I honestly think it’s worth the money, one may beg to differ but my whole family got a kick out of it. It’s a cute book with lots of laughs. By Amazon Customer
16. Feed Me and Tell Me I’m Pretty Onesie
I’m pretty sure you will want a matching one.
Product Review: This was a GREAT purchase! The print on the shirt was clear and easy to see like the picture. I am glad I ordered a size up from what my daughter is wearing currently, and would have gone up 2 sizes, they do run a little small. Overall, LOVE the shirt, and get lots of compliments!
17. Dirty Diaper Survival Kit
Product Review: I made a gift bag for my brother-in-law, cause his baby and wife were getting tons of things. It was a great surprise added to his bag. He laughed really hard and I think he’ll be using it next month when his baby comes home. By Amazon Customer

18. Bacon Teethers
Since the baby won’t be able to experience the magical taste of bacon just quite yet, get them the next best thing.
Product Review: So so cute and her absolute favorite! This tether has seen some real action and has held up and is still going strong. It is a perfect shape for little hands to hold and the texture is great to soothe gums or just chew on for fun. We have 2 and I recommend them a lot! By Amazon Customer
19. BabyStache Kissable Pacifier
20. Kissing Lips Pacifier
Product Review: I ordered this for my niece and it is absolutely adorable! It looks exactly like the picture. I wouldn’t recommend this as a soothing pacifier because the lips are oversized and a bit heavy. My niece is 4 months and when she was on her stomach or laying on her side the pacifier would fall out of her mouth because it’s a bit on the larger side (as expected). But it was most definitely a great picture op.

21. Porn for New Moms
Product Review: It was THE hit at the baby shower!! For reasons I don’t understand (maybe because I’m a guy), women really get a kick out of this one. I also purchased Porn for New Brides and found the same reaction. Maybe it’s because these books show us men as women would really like us to be, rather than the animals that we usually are: to wit, “Let’s not have sex tonight, sweetie, and I’ll just give you a foot rub.” Really!! Great fun. By Amazon Customer
22. Pregnancy Belly Painting Kit
Product Review: It was very safe and easy to use. My husband had fun drawing on my belly and I felt beautiful to see my baby through these belly pictures. Definitely worth celebrating the belly time. Recommend it for showers or general photographic memories. By Amazon Customer
23. Banner Shaped Sticky Notes
24. Woman’s Razor Extension Shaver Handle Woman’s Pregnant Shaver

26. Women’s Under Bump Maternity Panties Healthy Underwear
Product Review: These panties are wonderful. I’m 23 weeks along, and my thongs and regular panties just aren’t cutting it anymore. I have tried buying so many different underwears, and these are the only ones that have fit comfortably. They go up high enough on your back and hips to hold them in place and rest below your baby bump. They are far more flattering than any full coverage panties I have seen. I’d highly recommend. I am 136lbs, 5’5, at 23 weeks, and bought the extra large, based on other comments. I would not recommend this underwear for plus sized women, as they are Chinese sized. However, for a normal pregnancy, they are great! By Amazon Customer
27. Belly Bottle Pregnancy Gifts Water Bottle Intake Tracker with Weekly Stickers Calendar
Product Review: Love this bottle! I have gotten so many comments on this. The water tracker is very helpful (I have low fluid volume and need to drink a LOT to keep my BP up). The stickers hold up to the water bottle sweating and to many washes (by hand). Just make sure the bottle is dry/room temperature and clean when you apply your new sticker. I am on week 28 and they have held up wonderfully. By Amazon Customer
