Not Your Average Pregnancy Gift Guide

It feels like we’ve blinked and it’s already Christmas again. And this time, you or someone you care about is pregnant. If you’re checking out this blogpost, then chances are, you’re looking for some gift inspiration.

But what do you get a pregnant individual who is most likely already going to be having a baby shower?

Our answer:

Nothing for the baby.

I know, bold move. But stay with me here.

Obviously, we suggest getting the mother-to-be whatever she asks for. If she wants a box of diapers or a car seat, then do it. But if baby’s needs are likely to be met and no requests have been made, then chances are that mom is already beginning to learn what it is to put herself on the back burner.

It’s to be expected, right?

Not on our watch!

So put on your cape and pull open your Amazon app. Here are the top 10 Amazon gifts (under $20) that we recommend:

  1. San Francisco Salt Company gift bag

$12.99

Lavender-because you know sleep is hard to come by during pregnancy.

And milk-because that skin isn’t going to pamper itself.

2. “Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies About Who You Are so You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be” by Rachel Hollis

$11.49

$11.49

It’s no secret that moms tend to put themselves last. In this inspiring book that helps you kick a little self-butt, women are encouraged to accept and care for the women they ARE, not the woman they think they should be.

3. MAMI WATA Fruit Infuser Water Bottle

$19.99

4. Maternity Nursing Hoodie

$21.99

Is there anything as comfy as a hooded sweatshirt in the wintertime? I love that this one can be enjoyed throughout the entire pregnancy and postpartum! My daddy would’ve called that an “investment”. You’re welcome.

5. Hey Mama Mug

When practicality meets style! This mug sends a greeting to your favorite mama with every sip she takes. The bright colors ensure she won’t miss it in her sleepless fog.

6. Gemtye Hair Tie Bracelets

Is your pregnant loved one ready for the postpartum hair chop? It’s a rite of passage. But if they feel compelled to skip it, treat them to these fancy things. These accessories function as both hair ties and bracelets.

7. Mirrored Rose Gold Wayfarer Sunglasses

9. Beaded Tassel Earrings

$9.99

If you don’t have kids, I’m going to let you in on a sad reality. Your mama-to-be’s dangly earring days are numbered. Pretty soon she’ll be holding an adorable baby that will quickly realize that mommy’s ears are adorned with the most fascinating playthings. Help Mama live it up while she can and gift her this season’s trendiest earrings. She’s still wild at heart.

10. She Believed She Could, So She Did Necklace

$12.99

Last but not least, inspirational jewelry. Giving birth is no small feat. And it’s not like the journey ends there. Then you have to actually raise the baby! Mantras like “She believed she could, so she did” are often utilized in preparation for childbirth. Jewelry is particularly helpful because of its mobility.


And remember, if you’re ever in search of in-person support for your gestating loved ones, Utah Doulas and Company offers gift certificates. We’d love to help.
