7 of the Best Mother's Day Gifts for Mums-to-be

For expecting mums, Mother's Day can be an exciting time to celebrate their first as a mum-to-be. When it comes to gift shopping, the key is to make sure you don't slip into the trap of buying something for the baby that isn't really a gift for mum.

Pregnancy is hard, and expecting mums deserve to be treated on Mother's Day with something that gives them a bit of pampering or encourages them to take some 'me time'. Here, we run through seven of the most thoughtful gifts to celebrate the mum-to-be in your life Mother's Day!

'Mum To Be' Bracelet

When you think of personalised jewellery for Mother's Day, your mind probably jumps to a basic chain necklace with a name spelt out in cursive, or even the word 'mum'. These 'mum to be' bracelets, by Joma Jewellery, have offered up a new way to buy a bracelet or jewellery piece with a personalised touch while still looking timeless and classic.

Instead of a name or initial on the jewellery itself, Joma's elegant and minimalist pieces come in a huge range of tailored designs catering to every occasion and celebration, and the 'mum to be' bracelet is perfect for a partner or loved one who's pregnant for this Mother's Day. Each jewellery piece comes on a super cute card with a unique message explaining the meaning behind the gift.

LED Face Mask

There's no denying that pregnancy can completely mess up your skin! From acne and hyperpigmentation to the dreaded itchy PUPP rash that a lot of expecting mums get, it can definitely be difficult to keep on top of the changes in your skin.

This LED face mask can help to conquer all sorts of skin issues, and it's a perfect Mother's Day gift for your pregnant partner or friend. The wavelengths used by the mask stimulate collagen production and cell renewal for visibly healthier and fresher skin. Plus, it's a perfect time for a mum-to-be to set aside 10 minutes every day to really sit back and relax for some self care time while the mask works its magic.

The Yorkshire Beeswax Candle Company

When running through what's safe and what's not for pregnant people, candles are often forgotten about. Candles made with lead wicks, paraffin wax, and synthetic fragrances can be harmful while pregnant.

Because of this, it's always best to opt for natural candles without the added chemicals. This natural beeswax candle gift set from The Yorkshire Beeswax Candle Company is a clean option, and you can see exactly how their candles are made on the website. This bundle is a perfect Mother's Day gift option, with a mix of candles, lip balms, and wax melts from their range.

Mini Heated Massage Gun

Pregnancy can be tough on a woman's body, and if your partner has ever been pregnant before you're probably more than used to spending your evenings rubbing her feet and helping to massage her aches and pains. Pregnant women often experience increased muscle tension in lots of places, but especially in the back, neck, and shoulders, which can lead to pain and discomfort.

One way to cheer up an achy mum-to-be this Mother's Day is to gift her with her very own handheld massage gun to help relieve all that tension she's got, and hopefully help with any swelling she might be experiencing.

This handheld massage gun has a whopping five different attachments, four settings, and added heat to stimulate blood flow deep within the affected muscle tissue. It's on the pricier side compared to some of our other gifts, but she'll certainly thank you for this one!

Quirky Expectant Mum Chocolate Gift Set

What could be a better Mother's Day gift for a mum-to-be than chocolate? This super cute chocolate gift set for expecting mums comes with three different artisan chocolate bars in a huge range of yummy milk and dark flavours.

Each has a fun pregnancy related quote for the mum-to-be, which is sure to make her smile. This one's a perfect affordable, and thoughtful gift for a friend or loved one who's expecting this Mother's Day.

Maternity Personal Shopping/Bra Fitting Services

Let's face it, maternity clothes and bra shopping can be painful for mums-to-be. Their bodies are changing, old favourite clothes no longer fit, and it can be a lot to deal with mentally on top of everything else to think about during pregnancy.

Why not give the expecting mum in your life one less thing to worry about, and treat her to a VIP shopping experience with a mother and baby specialist? This is the perfect chance for her to get some special treatment, and the personal shopping experience she needs to find a capsule wardrobe to last throughout pregnancy and beyond.

Slim Instant Mobile Photo Printer

What's one thing that new and expecting mums love? Photos! This is a huge transitional part of anyone's life, and all new mums want the memories to look back on in years to come.

Still, with so much going on towards the end of pregnancy and into the newborn stage, who's got the time to get out of the house to go and get photos developed? That's where this gift comes in-with an instant mobile phone printer, you'll never need to go and get photos developed again!

With this handheld photo printer, expecting and new mums can take the bump and baby photos straight from their camera roll into the photo albums. The printer connects to your phone via Bluetooth, making it super easy to use, and prints your photos off there and then onto high-quality photo paper.

If you're making use of this gift for Mother's Day, make sure to buy some compatible photo paper with it, so the expecting mum in your life can get started snapping her bump pics from day one!
