As a mum-to-be at Christmas time, gift ideas for yourself can be far from your mind. The easy option like your favourite bottle of Gin or an old faithful pair of jeans are all off the Santa list this year. That doesn’t mean you can’t be treated to some lovely gifts from family and friends. If you are struggling for suggestions or if your wife, sister or friend is pregnant this Christmas, here is our Mum-To-Be Christmas Wish List.
Something which mums-to-be don’t often treat themselves to, but having comfy nightwear during pregnancy can really help with the ongoing sleep battle. It certainly became my pregnancy must have item! This range of maternity sleepwear from Mamas and Papas is really soft, practical yet stylish and can be mixed and matched to best suit your style.
It’s surprising how many cosmetics are needed for even the shortest of hospital stays. This Orla Kiely wash bag from John Lewis is not only perfect for your hospital stay when the time comes to meet baby, but can be used time and time again for those nights away and family holidays.
Pregnancy Skin Pampering Gift Set
Not all cosmetic products are safe to use while pregnant, but you shouldn’t feel like you can’t enjoy a little me time or treat your skin to some well-deserved pampering. The ‘Your Pregnancy Essentials Kit’ gift set from Mama Mio would make the perfect pampering item for your Christmas Wish List.
An item that you maybe don’t normally wear but trust me, once baby is born you will be thankful for that ‘hug’ feeling a lovely warm dressing gown will give you. This dressing gown from Mamamoosh is ideal not just for during the rest of your pregnancy and hospital stay but for those middle of the night feeds and lazy morning cuddles with baby. Most important is that it is machine washable for all those baby related accidents 🙂
If you want to avoid receiving the more practical gift ideas, you can’t go wrong with a lovely piece of jewellery. This necklace from Swarovski could be worn as a special everyday piece of jewellery or for those rare but special nights out once baby arrives.
