12 Valentine’s Day Gifts for Expecting Moms

Shopping for an expectant mom for Valentine’s Day calls for a little extra thoughtfulness. No matter which trimester she’s experiencing, carrying a baby for nine months is no cake walk! Flowers and chocolate may have done the trick before but you’ll have to up your game this year. Surviving through morning sickness, back pain, swollen feet and a laundry list of other super-fun pregnancy symptoms means your VIP (very important pregnant) lady deserves something extra on Valentine’s Day. When it comes down to it, a Valentine’s Day gift for expecting moms means the most when it comes from the heart. Here are 12 Valentine’s Day gifts for expecting moms that are sure to earn you extra bonus points.  


Pregnancy Pillow

Getting a good night’s sleep becomes impossible during pregnancy because you can’t find a comfortable position. Give her the gift of true rest with a pregnancy pillow, designed to fit around her shape and keep her belly supported.



Prenatal Massage

When you’re pregnant, pampering takes on a whole new meaning of comfort. And a prenatal massage is the best kind of relaxation she deserves. It may even improve the outcome of labor for her. Look for spas that have massage therapists trained in prenatal massage, or give her the option of choosing herself. Spa Finder works with hundreds of spas and facilities across the country.

Dare we say that the mama-to-be in your life wants to feel comfortable AND sexy when it comes to sleepwear or lingerie? These Majamas are suitable for maternity and nursing while still looking flirty and feminine.



Hatch Mama Pocket Spa Trio

Give her the gift of portable pampering with this set of three essential oil-based rollerballs designed to perk up energy, relieve nausea and calm nerves. They contain only a 1% essential oil concentration so they are safe for pregnancy.



Breakfast in Bed

A day spent full of quality time and relaxing is the best type of Valentine’s Day gift for expecting moms. Start your day together by making her breakfast in bed, complete with all of her favorite foods. She gets foods she’s craving and the chance to put her feet up and do nothing. It’s a win-win for you both!


Maternity Robe

There’s nothing better than soft, comfortable clothing that doesn’t feel restrictive during pregnancy. It’s easy for expecting mamas to feel frumpy, so remind her how beautiful she is with a delicate robe or nightgown. She can wear the robe all through labor and delivery, and keep it as a favorite staple to wear long after the pregnancy is over.
