The Gifted Mother: Seasoned Mommy-to-Be

A mom who's expecting her second (third, fourth, etc.) bundle of joy has more experience than those pregnant with their first. Forget books on what she should expect and potions on keeping stretch marks at bay; she's already been there, done that. Sure she'd love a few extra hours in the day to catch up on her sleep or a moment's peace, but here are some gifts that will keep her plugging along during pregnancy.

  • Great Expectations takes the seasoned mom through 24 true stories of labor and delivery. Since she's already experienced the joy of childbirth, she'll appreciate reading other tales from the hospital bed.
  • The 3G iPhone is modern-day mom's brag book. The seasoned mommy-to-be will love being able to share pictures of her little ones, in preschool and in utero, with the touch of a screen.
  • She's already got a closet full of maternity clothes from her previous pregnancy, but she still likes to keep her look current. A fabulous pair of flat boots such as the Paige Boots from Frye will rev up her existing wardrobe.
