Forget the teething necklaces, give mum a piece of jewellery she can and will treasure forever. A locket with a picture of her unborn child’s ultrasound, a signet right with the colour of the baby’s birth month or even a bangle with something sweet engraved would be a prized possession.

Throw Blanket

Mum will more than likely be exhausted and will spend many hours on the couch or rocking chair trying to get bub to sleep or breastfeeding. A soft throw blanket would make her uncomfortable time on these chairs that bit more relaxing.

Subscription Box

There are so many different kinds of subscription boxes available for women that there is bound to be one that she will love. There are options for beauty boxes, tea, relaxation and so many more. It is ultimately the gift that keeps on giving.

Soft and sensual yet comfortable pyjamas or a night gown would be welcomed. After months of wearing maternity clothes the mum to be will be yearning to wear something beautiful, flattering and comfy. This is great for not just late stage pregnancy but also once bub is born.


A diary or journal is not just a great way to document all those feelings and emotions, it gives mum a place to share her true feelings without judgement. Motherhood can be tough in the early days and this allows her to be able to look back in months or years to come and remember every small detail.

Mum Survival Kit

Stock up on the basics that this mumma will need. Fill a mason jar with hand sanitiser, Advil, coffee sachets, hair ties, face scrub and lip balm. These essential items are often things she will overlook and will be extremely grateful you had her back.

Pamper Voucher

This gift would be great for late stage pregnancy or even once the baby has been born. Giving this tired but beautiful woman the gift to feel pampered will not go unnoticed. It doesn’t matter if it is only a manicure, a massage or an express facial, it will give her that instant confidence boost.


The gift of food is underrated. You know your friend will be drained and the last thing she will want to do is cook, so make up some freezable meals that the family can just throw in the microwave or oven and enjoy without the stress of fitting cooking into their days as well. You don’t have to create anything fancy, meals like spaghetti bolognaise, lasagne and pies are ideal because they are easy and taste good.
