BellaSugar's Gift Guide: The Mommy-To-Be

BellaSugar's Gift Guide: The Mommy-To-Be

Welcome to the first post of my 2007 Holiday Gift Guide! Every weekday, I'll share a new set of ideas for gifts for your mom, dad, sib, boss, pals, special guy in your life and just about anyone else gift-worthy this season.

To kick off the guide, and to support our dear friend LilSugar, let's celebrate the mommies-to-be. Here are three great ideas for pregnant women who are carrying around those little ones. Since two of my best friends are about to become mommies, this was a lot of fun to put together!

My favorite item of the group is this Wonder-Full Balm from Mama Mio ($25). It's great for itchy and flaky belly skin, and it works quickly to relieve dryness and discomfort. If that's not something you think she'd like, there's also this Mustela Stretch Marks Double Action Cream ($34.49), which will help strengthen skin's elasticity around the belly, breasts abdomen, hips, and thighs to help reduce stretch marks during pregnancy.

Lastly, I love this Henna Vegetable Hair Dye ($1.99) for ladies who prefer to err on the side of caution and steer clear of chemical substances during their first trimester. While hair dying chemicals aren't highly toxic, vegetable dyes are all-natural, safe alternatives. Put it in a basket with some hair accessories, and you've got a great gift.

Got a few great ideas of your own? If so, I encourage you to please share them in a comment below!

I use Henna on my hair and it works fantastically! Everyone raves about my "natural" red highlights. I love the idea of giving it to chemically-concerned pregnant women, but EVERYONE should use it. It's wonderful!

This is PERFECT. One of my best friends is going to have a baby around late January, and I wanted to get her something she could actually use during her mom-capades. Thank you!

This is totally off topic and certainly not meant to be an attack on Bella, but on society as a whole -- why does everyone always refer to pregnant women as "mommies"? I, personally, find it to be condescending when coming from another grown adult. Just because you are pregnant means you now need to be surrounded by babytalk? When I have children, I'll make it very clear that I am pregnant or about to become a mother, but it's not appropriate for other peers to give me the title of Mommy.
