If your wife is currently pregnant, than 2017 marks her first Mother's Day as a mom. And chances are, she's feeling a mix of emotions. Because as exciting as it is to expand your family, dealing with constant physical and emotional changes isn't fun. Chances are she could use some extra love and pampering. Thankfully, there are so many ideas for Mother's Day gifts for your pregnant wife you really can't go wrong.
Just because the baby isn't here yet, doesn't mean your wife isn't a bonafide mom. She's already had to make mom-level sacrifices like dealing with lack of sleep, morning sickness, bloating, and a plethora of other not-so-fun pregnancy symptoms. Not to mention, growing eyeballs and brains takes a lot of work. Now is the time to go out of your way to make sure your wife feels like she's appreciated. Time is limited once a child comes into the picture and who knows if you'll have the energy to think of special gifts after several sleepless nights with a baby.
To take the pressure off of finding something for her this year, use this guide as inspiration. Here are 11 Mother's Day gift ideas for the pregnant woman in your life.
1. A Massager
It's no secret that pregnant women get aches. They're carrying around extra weight, their muscles are stretching, and everything is just a bit more uncomfortable. Make her massage dreams come true by buying her a personal massager, like the Santamedical Mini Penguin Massager sold on Amazon. You could also buy a gift card to a local spa.
2. Ginger Tea
Morning sickness, all day nausea, and indigestion plagues many pregnant mamas. According to Web Md, ginger root may alleviate nausea although how it happens is still a mystery. If your wife is having nausea or digestive issues buying her some nice ginger tea is a really thoughtful way of showing her that you care about how yucky she feels. Decaf Ginger Numi Tea is great because there's no caffeine and it also has lemongrass for a sweet flavor.
3. Mint Foot Cream
4. Non-Toxic Nail Polish
5. A Mother's Day Card From The Baby
6. Fun Threads
7. Pregnancy Pillow
8. Gift Card For A Blow Out
Did I mention pregnancy is exhausting? Why not give your wife's tired arms a break from having to do her hair? A blow out is great because stylists will give her a relaxing head massage while shampooing her hair. Then they'll blow dry her hair and style it any way she wants. You may also want to throw in some extra money so she can snag some dry shampoo. It will come in handy when the baby is born.
10. Her Favorite Foods
Whatever your wife is craving — salty or sweet — just go get it. And get lots of it. You can also opt to make it, but only do this if you're good at making her favorite food.
11. A Diaper Bag That's A Bit Of A Splurge
A diaper bag is something your wife will be carrying around every day for at least one year. Treat her and buy her one that she'd probably never buy herself. This Marc Jacobs 'biker' baby bag is spacious, has a fold up changing pad, and an extra long strap (and it's super chic).
