Pregnancy is nothing short of a whirlwind, and it can be easy to forget about your own needs during your first nine months of really caring for someone else- the beautiful bub growing inside of you! Is there an expectant mother in your life?
Now is the time to remind her that her own needs matter too. When you're shopping for pregnancy gifts (for first-time mums or otherwise!) it's important to choose products that are guaranteed to be both safe and useful during and after pregnancy.
To make shopping for mums-to-be that bit easier, we've collated a list of the very best pregnancy gifts- all of which are safe, natural, and encourage a bit of self-care. Explore our pregnancy gift boxes, specially curated for the ultimate pampering session, and more of our favourite pregnancy-safe products below.
Our Favourite Pregnancy Self Care Gift Sets
A gift set is always a welcome early pregnancy gift, as the recipient will find herself with a number of carefully selected gifts that she can incorporate into a self-care ritual or use individually! We love the Nourished Life Pregnancy Care Package, which contains three Nourished Life bestsellers that we know mums-to-be will love- the Pukka Tea - Motherkind Pregnancy, a tea rich in sustainably sourced, supportive herbs traditionally used during pregnancy, the Weleda Stretch Mark Massage Oil, which can be used every day from early pregnancy, and an Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses® Soothing Body Lotion to help boost cell regeneration and improve the skin barrier function to restore a soft, smooth and healthy-looking glow.
If you're looking for a seriously indulgent self-care gift for a first time mum, we recommend the Nourished Life Pregnancy Self Care Essentials Pack, which includes the aforementioned Pukka Tea - Motherkind Pregnancy plus a Crop Natural Hydrating Aloe Vera Mask, a two-pack of KOOSHOO Organic Scrunchies, a bottle of Earth Mumma Organic Mumma To Be Belly Oil, the iconic Weleda Skin Food Light and Dr Bronner's Pure-Castile Liquid Soap in soothing lavender.
More of the Best Natural Pregnancy Gifts
We firmly believe that the best pregnancy gifts are those that strike a balance between practicality and pampering- and are, of course, safe and natural! Mums to be will love Willow By The Sea, a New South Wales based husband and wife team creating 100% Certified Organic baby and pregnancy products using the highest quality botanicals, oils, and waxes. For mums to be, we recommend the Willow By The Sea Belly Oil, a nourishing blend of omega-rich organic oils that penetrates into the deeper layers of skin to help relieve itching, combat stretch marks, and calm inflammation during pregnancy, and the Willow By The Sea Belly Butter, a concentrated formula designed to lock in moisture and support the elasticity of the skin as at stretches during pregnancy. A long-time favourite amongst the Nourished Life community is the Weleda Stretch Mark Massage Oil, which has been dermatologically tested and specifically developed to help protect against the formation of stretch marks on the stomach, bottom, thighs and breasts through regular massage. Another luxe, a natural gift that mums-to-be will love is the Madara Infusion Vert Body Antioxidant Firming Oil. This aromatic vitamin-infused body oil firms, tones and improves the skin's elasticity through a natural, vegan blend of rejuvenating lemon balm and uplifting thyme.
Pai's The Gemini Stretch Mark Dual-System is a truly luxe pregnancy gift and was originally formulated for Natalie Portman! Rather than a one-step oil, this system begins with a hydrating cream applied in the morning to drive moisture into the skin, while an evening application of a replenishing oil works to nourish the skin and keep it supple and healthy.
A pregnancy skincare routine shouldn't begin and end with moisturiser - cleansing the skin is just as important! Gift the expectant mother in your life with Skin Juice Mummy's Tummy Organic Body Wash, which is rich in essential fatty acids to promote skin elasticity and moisture absorption, cleansing the skin without stripping it of its natural oils.
