So…Mother’s Day is coming up! Looking for Mother’s Day gifts for expectant mothers? Seeing as I’m around preggie mommies a lot, I thought I’d put together a gift guide of what to get your pregnant friend/wife/sister/cousin/baby momma this upcoming holiday!
Mother’s Day gifts for expectant mothers can be tricky. There’s a whole lot of stuff out there for MOMS but maybe not as many specifically for the MOMS TO BE.
Luckily, most pregnant women like gifts. And even if it’s something small, it’s really the thought that counts! Even if it’s just a card, that really says a lot!

18 mother’s day gifts for expectant mothers!
I got pregnant in May of 2016, so I actually didn’t get to experience a “pregnant” Mother’s Day. So sad! My son was born in February, so I celebrated my first Mother’s Day when he was three months old.
In fact, I’ll start off this list of what my husband gave me on my first Mother’s Day:
So sweet! I totally love it, and I wear it almost every day! I couldn’t find the exact link, but this is the highest quality, highest reviewed initial necklace I could find:
Alright, here’s the rest of the list!
I had one of these books during my pregnancy and I HIGHLY recommend it! So fun to be able to write in every week what’s going on in your life, and I’ve looked back at it multiple times over the past year.
3. Bath bombs
What pregnant lady doesn’t like soaking in the bath? I’ve found these to be the most cost-effective, and highest quality bath bombs out there, and these are specially made for pregnant mamas! Your choice 🙂
Too many mamas skip out on childbirth education for a number of reasons. They don’t think it’s worthwhile, it’s too expensive, or they don’t have room in their busy schedules.
Insert the online birth class! Give the gift of a birth class that they can take anywhere at any time. They will be SO grateful later. I know it will give them a better birth experience, and you can be the one to gift it to them 🙂
You can pick one that emphasizes natural birth but also teaches about medical pain relief, or one specific to mamas that want an epidural. When you go to check out there’s an option to give it as a gift.
6. Preggie pops
9. A bump box
Have you guys seen these? They are all the rage! A Bump Box is an adorable gift for your favorite pregnant lady! I’ve already mentioned a few items that they include, but they are so darn cute and compact.
If you’re interested in creating your own monthly maternity box as a gift, check out this article where I explain how I did it for one of my friends!
10. Belly Buds
For the musical mama. Play your baby some jams!
I didn’t do one of these during my pregnancy, but I think they are super cool! Fair warning, they are SUPER messy, but this one actually comes with a floor cover!
Attention all pregnant ladies: you need this if you want to keep your current pants on longer!
Most pregnant ladies love them some leggings. Leggings > Pants any day. And these ones by Motherhood maternity are THE best. Hands down. The pregnant mama in your life will be running back for a few more pairs after she tries these on.
14. Belly butter
This is my absolute FAVORITE stretch mark cream! Burt’s Bees has a really great line of pregnancy skin care products, and their belly butter was by far my favorite.
The scent is also not too in-your-face unlike some lotions with cocoa butter. Motherlove also has a nice scent, and Mother’s Special Blend is really great too if you like something a bit more oil based.
If you’re interested in learning about more options, here’s a complete guide to pregnancy stretch mark creams and prevention!
15. Pregnancy Pillow
A pregnancy pillow is one of those gifts that’s practical but also pampers the first time mama to be! I honestly don’t know how I would have gotten any sleep without one.
Pregnancy insomnia + all the discomfort that comes along with growing a tiny human can make sleep feel impossible. These pillow seriously helps alot!
For any mom with a sense of humor, seriously, just go read the comments on Amazon!
This book is great for any pregnant lady trying to go the au natural route! I read it during my pregnancy, and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it.
18. And finally, undies
These awesome “Under Bump” undies can be worn throughout pregnancy and during postpartum as well. They have a low waist cross design, and they fit nicely underneath your bump without causing any pressure.
Maybe it’s just me, but I’m at a point in my life where I get excited about getting some new underwear.
