Buying a special gift for a soon-to-be mom is not as hard as it sounds. The baby will be getting lots of presents at showers and from family members, but what about mom? There are several gift ideas to show mom how special you think she is.
Meals for Mom
Being pregnant can often leave mom with swollen legs and feet. Why not surprise her with a meal of her favourite foods and save her from having to cook? Find out what her favourite foods are and prepare them for her. This can be a one-time treat or something you do once a week for her to give her a break. It's a gift that will be appreciated and remembered--especially if you're a good cook.
Gift baskets are great for expectant moms. Load up a basket with spa items such as bath oils, body creams and skin care products. Throw in a couple of candles and maybe a soothing, relaxing CD, and she'll have all she needs to relax and enjoy. You could even make up a basket of fruit and healthy snacks. She can keep it within easy reach for when she wants a snack. Fruit, fig bars and sugar-free cookies are just a few ideas for healthy treats that are not loaded with sugar.
Babies are so much fun and grow so fast; give mom a digital camera to capture all those special moments. Not only will it save time and money on trips to get film developed, but she will also be able to share photos with family and friends online.
