A thoughtful list of gifts for pregnant women that she will love! Whether she is in her first trimester or almost ready to go into labor, these pregnancy gifts are perfect for Christmas, birthday, holiday or just because you want to treat her right during her pregnancy.
Gift Certificate for a Massage
As I began researching the best gifts for pregnant women, I was overcome by how lame some of the suggestions are. Pregnancy thong underwear? Who in their right mind is giving that to their pregnant friend? And there are a lot of ugly/funny pregnancy t-shirts out there (unlike this list of super cute ones I made!).
But if you want to hit a home run with a gift for your pregnant person, you cannot go wrong with a gift certificate for a massage. Best to go with a local independent massage therapist who specializes in prenatal massage. I think the best way to find a place is to google her city and state + prenatal massage. You’ll get a list of local to her places that do prenatal massage. PLUS that search result has starred reviews, too, that can help you to know which places are highly rated and well loved by their customers.
Fit2B is an excellent all-around fitness resource for women who want to work out at home. I have really enjoyed using Fit2B at my house throughout the years, and my kids love their kids’ classes. We stream it through our Roku right to our TV.

That first trimester (let’s be real, the second and third trimester, too) can be, well, trying. A gift of some new makeup or other fun products can provide a welcome distraction from the less than delightful parts of pregnancy! Consider sending a fun and ever-so-distracting Love Goodly organic beauty box to your favorite pregnant person.

Every woman needs a cute dress she can pop into. It makes dressing easy when everything else seems hard. And a dress that has room for a baby belly then later hides that postpartum pooch and has nursing access–well, it’s a dream come true. I love tank dresses year round and just add leggings and a cardigan in the colder months. This adorable dress that effortlessly slips from maternity into nursingwear is a gift she’ll love.
Next up is a book of creative non-alcoholic recipes, Drinking For Two. This book comes super highly rated on Amazon and is billed as the ideal gift for health conscious moms-to-be. It not only has great non-alcoholic drink recipes, it also has helpful nutrition advice from the authors who are nutritionists. As I wrote in my post on beverages for the first trimester, a good drink is a little oasis in a busy day. This book provides not just sugary mocktails, but super-inventive and interesting drinks that don’t have alcohol. Even the non-pregnant among us can enjoy these delicious recipes. Perfect for the adventurous foodie pregnant mama.
Still in the beverage vein, this present is more for the pregnant tea aficionados. This pregnancy tea sampler gift box has 9 different teas that cover all of pregnancy plus postpartum AND an infuser for the loose leaf tea. I would have loved this set when I was pregnant. Developed by an herbalist, this is perfect for the crunchy mama who appreciates the health value of specific herbs or just loves a good cup of tea.
If your pregnant person is into health, this book is THE current gold standard book on nutrition during pregnancy. Lily Nichols, the author, has looked at all the research and put together this substantial book that will guide nutritional choices during pregnancy in the best way possible. Healthy babies start with healthy pregnancies. This book will show her what to eat and what to avoid. Highly, highly recommended!
