Lil Gift Guide: The Pregnant Friend

For our first gift-guide post, we are thrilled that the person we are giving to is the mother-to-be. Having been one, it was hard to narrow down just a few items that I liked when I was pregnant. Here are three presents that any pregnant lady would love (and need).

Under $50
My hot mama friends and I love Belly Mama Belly Oil (4 fl. oz. for $24). There are tons of belly rubs to choose from, but this one is great for stretch marks and dry skin — all the things a mom-to-be wants to avoid!

To check out the rest of my gift guide,

$50 to $100
When she's in the hospital with swollen ankles and sore parts, the last thing she will feel is cute. Dear Johnnies ($65 – $70) makes adorable pajamas and robes for women who have just had their babies. Their motto is "special gowns for special deliveries." These punch-colored gowns and polka-dotted robes will give the new mom just the pep she needs for all of those hospital paparazzi moments!

Over $100
As a woman's belly grows so does her sleep discomfort. You can help remedy the restless nights by getting your friend a body pillow that will mold to her form. The Tempur-Pedic Body Pillow ($150) may set you back just a tad but your friend will be eternally grateful.

My only advice is to be sure the mom-to-be actually wants holiday gifts that center on her pregnancy and baby more than on her. Some women feel rather dehumanized while pregnant and would prefer something that singles them out as an individual, not a baby-maker. That's why I take issue with the blanket statement of "ANY pregnant woman" loving the gifts.

When I was pregnant, I wish someone had given me a pre-natal massage, a pedicure (since I couldn't see my toes) and one of these:
