Christmas gifts for expecting mums27/11/2015
Christmas can be a tough time for your piggy bank. It feels like there are almost too many people on your “nice” list to buy gifts for. But there are some people in your life who, whether you’ve drawn their name from a hat or not, deserve a special effort: expecting mothers.
Like Christmas, pregnancy can be a most glorious and wonderful time. But like Christmas, it can also be tiring, stressful and occasionally sickening. And that’s before the bundle of joy arrives! So while she still has some time to pamper herself, give her one of these gifts this Christmas.
Sharing is caring
To keep your friend both relaxed and in the Christmassy mood, give her this Christmas Spiced Candle.
This is actually a present for all, as its warm scent will nicely fill up the entire house.
So technically, she’s sharing without you having to ask.
Not sure if I can say the same about this Donegal Tweed Wool Blanket in Midnight Navy though.
You might have to ask her very nicely to get your feet in under the side of that!
Givin’ it socks
Mommas-to-be should be spending as much time as they can lounging around the house wearing their cozies.
Some pregnant women find their feet swelling during pregnancy, so socks are definitely a better idea than shoes right now. At least that’s the excuse you can use when you tell her why you didn’t buy her a pair of Manolos.
Get ahead on next year’s diary
To help her keep track of appointments, trimesters and important dates, give your friend this gorgeous Kate Spade New York Large Agenda in Mint.
These bad boys are top of every girl’s wish list this year, pregnant or not, so we wouldn’t blame you if you were to get one for yourself too!
Keeping a diary is a simple yet highly effective way for a mother-to-be to chronicle her experience and feelings during such a unique time.
Speaking of healthy food and drink, it doesn’t get any better than detoxifying herbal tea in a beautiful vintage-inspired Wedgwood Cuckoo Teacup & Saucer.
This is a lovely and simple gift that will remind your friend to take a few minutes for herself every day.
So much in a my name
This next gift is perfect for expecting mothers. It’s also something that’s been handcrafted in Dublin’s arty Portobello area. These super cute 20 carat gold initial necklaces from Chupi are perfect for a mother who has already chosen the name for her baby or if she already has children whose initials she wants to honour.
If you won’t be seeing her at Christmas, it also makes an ideal post-baby gift when the baby has been named. The “Whisper my Name” or “Say my Name” necklaces are available in both gold and silver.
Bun in the oven
Another Irish creator we all know and love has recently come to the rescue of mums and dads everywhere. Arguably Ireland’s loveliest chef, Neven has released Neven Maguire’s Complete Baby and Toddler Cookbook. This book is jam-packed with nutritious, easy to follow recipes for your young that will save you the money and hassle of trying to find suitable processed food.
