Gift Guide for the Mom-to-Be
It’s November which means some people have already started making their Christmas lists and planning out their gifts. I thought it’d be fun to create a series of gift guides to help others out as they plan for the upcoming holiday season. Check back every Friday for a new one! We’re kicking off the lists with items you can get a mom-to-be in your life.
Do you have a mom-to-be to buy for this year? Are you wondering what you should get her? Well, I’ll give you one hint – not baby stuff. She’ll be getting plenty of that at her baby shower. Instead, opt for a gift that will give her the chance to practice a little self care before and after the baby is born. I’ve listed a few items that you could buy for her, but I don’t personally know the momma to be that you’re buying for – don’t forget to take her personality and style into account when you’re picking out a gift! A personal gift is always better than a generic one.
Chances are the momma to be has been having a little trouble sleeping. Get her something small that will help her sleep better at all times of the day.
