Everyone is usually excited that a new baby is on the way. Sometimes in that excitement, the expecting mom is forgotten. Remember, she should feel special too. Pregnancy is at times stressful and can come with its highs and lows. Why not make an expectant mom feel great by treating her to something nice like a spa day? I’ve curated a list of The Best Gifts to Buy an Expecting Mom.
Pregnancy pillows are a lifesaver during pregnancy, especially towards the end when mom’s belly is getting bigger and it’s harder to find a comfortable sleeping position. Trust me, I know. I cannot go to bed without my Boppy.

We know how messy giving birth can get, but after delivery, new moms will want to change into something different, comfortable and cute. Buying an expectant mom a new maternity or nursing gown for her hospital stay is a great gift, especially if it is a matching mommy and me set. Mommy and me sets are super cute for photo ops.
These are great for late-night feedings. Nursing pajamas allow new moms to stay comfortable and feed easily while in the hospital and once home, even in their most sleep-deprived state.
A pair of cozy socks are perfect for walking around at home or in the hospital. Plus, there are so many with cute messages on the sole, which add some fun to pregnancy, labor and delivery moments.
Keeping hydrated during pregnancy is crazy important. It can be the fine line between having contractions due to dehydration and not. And if the mom-to-be is going to breastfeed, the thirst will truly be real. Therefore, the need for a good water bottle is there. Pregnant women should drink at least half their body weight in fluids. Water is best, but if you know she’s not a water drinker, add a few packets of electrolyte powder with the water bottle.

Yes, we all have smartphones with cameras; however, they do not print photos instantly! Any expectant mom would love to receive an instant camera like the Kodak Mini Shot that allows mom to take a photo and print instantly. This would go perfectly with the mommy and met outfits for mom to snap photos of her and the new baby, make a collage and/or share with friends and family.
Prenatal Massage or Spa Day
An expectant mom will love a prenatal massage or spa day. Her body is going through so many changes, and having a growing belly can wreak havoc on her body. Plus, there will soon be a time when a relaxing day at the spa or time alone will be far and few in between. Groupon usually has great deals on massages.
Diaper Bag or Overnight Bag
Diaper bags have come a long way. Now, they don’t even look like diaper bags and are multi-functional. Expectant moms can use the diaper bag as their hospital bag. Packing away the things needed for not only her hospital stay but items to bring home her new bundle of joy.
