Awesome Gifts for Pregnant Women

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

awesome gifts for pregnant womenIf a woman on your Christmas list is pregnant this year, you may find yourself having a difficult time shopping for her. Typical gifts often are not ideal for a pregnant woman. Our clothing size is ever changing and will continue to change post-baby. So steer clear of clothes or items to remind her she is getting bigger with every Christmas cookie she eats.

To help you find the perfect gift for the expectant mama on your shopping list, I have found several great items that I want to share with you. Here are some awesome gifts for pregnant women!

I love these compression socks from Vim and Vigr. There are so many fun patterns to choose from. Wearing compression socks during pregnancy can help prevent swelling, help support good blood flow, and prevent annoying leg cramps. These socks are also just perfect for after baby is born. I know with my previous pregnancies the swelling came on much worst after the baby was born. And who doesn’t want to wear pretty socks while hanging out at home or in the hospital snuggling your new bundle of joy!

This product has a light scent as to not over power those sensitive noses pregnant women tend to suffer from. Pair this foot soak with Anna Naturals Shrink My Feet Massage Oil for essential oil relief for tired and swollen feet. I love that both of these products are all natural–just as the name suggests.

Another great gift idea for any pregnant mama is a great water bottle. During pregnancy women need to drink lots of water. Nursing mothers also need to drink tons and tons of water. It is difficult for new moms to remember to drink water as we are busy tending to our newborn’s needs. A solid, spill proof water bottle can be a huge help in making sure you take in enough fluids. I like Pura Sport bottles. They are made of stainless steel and free of BPA/BPS. We have enough to worry about with a new baby, we don’t need to worry about toxins leaching into our water. I personally love the fact that these are dishwasher safe. awesome gifts for pregnant women

Sunday Funday Giveaway | Piggy Paint

Sunday, September 25th, 2011

Last week I did a blog post about Mothers’ Blessingway Ceremonies where I shared some ideas on how to celebrate a mother-to-be.  Another element you could incorporate into a Blessingway is pampering activities for the expecting mom. This could include an herbal footbath, a massage, hair braiding, or nail-polishing.  Any activity that makes a mother feel beautiful, special, loved, and adorned is a great pampering activity to include. And let’s face it, what mother couldn’t use a little pampering in her life? So with that thought in mind today’s give-away is for a Piggy Paint Nail Polish Gift Set. You can enjoy a little pampering by painting your finger and/or toenails in one of the fun Piggy Paint colors.  The best part is there are no toxic chemicals! Piggy Paint is free of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, Bisphenol A, ethyl acetate and acetone.

You are an amazingly strong, beautiful, and vibrant woman…be sure to make time to honor and rejuvenate your feminine spirit. What will you do to pamper yourself today?  We would love to hear your ideas!
