The 7 Perfect Gifts for Pregnancy in 2021by Elizabeth MacDonald
Growing a baby in 2021 is not exactly rainbows and unicorns. There seems to be added stressors every week. Mix those with limited socializing, anxiety and uncertainty, and you have a recipe for loneliness and postpartum depression. We need to be supporting pregnant women in any way we can right now (and always).
Whether a pregnant friend or family member is having an untraditional shower this year or not, she deserves to be sprinkled with blessings from those who love her. Little gestures go a long way. Of course, if she will have you, consider just hugging her or sitting with her for awhile over a cup of tea, meeting for a walk, or enjoying a meal together. Either way, consider gifting her one of 2021’s top pregnancy presents!
The 7 Perfect Gifts for Pregnancy in 2021
A Heartbeat Doppler and a My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear
Most women are not frequenting their doctors’ as often due to COVID-19, and are being told to hang at home and come in only when needed. This leaves new mothers anxious over hearing their baby’s heartbeat. That sweet sound is beyond comforting and deserves to be heard again and again. Gifting a mother a doppler and a soft, huggable, recording Heartbeat Animal will allow her to do just that!
Sometimes you just need to wrap yourself up to feel loved and supported. What better to do so with than a handmade, gorgeous quilt?
This gift is made even more special when you take the time to request all close friends and family members create drawings or take pictures using specific colors (Possibly the colors used in the baby’s nursery). You will need to collect these images and submit them online to Bags Of Love (or a similar company). From there, you wait for the magic to be delivered!
(“Personalized picture quilts are handmade to order, by our expert seamstresses. We use a specialist printing process that fuses the ink to the satin fibers, so your designs won't scratch off or peel away and they resist fading. The print is striking, with an almost HD finish. We print your designs onto a piece of Duchess satin fabric and print another piece with your chosen backing color. Thick, sumptuous padding is inserted before the two pieces are hand sewn together with mitered corners (to create the border), so your photo quilt is a real example of artisan craftsmanship.”)
Meal Delivery (Or Subscription)
Most women don’t feel like cooking much throughout pregnancy. Even if that’s not the case, enjoying food she didn’t have to think about shopping for is always a win. You can gift a single meal from her favorite restaurant or a few meals delivered by delicious cooking subscriptions.
At-Home Massage or Pedicure
If sitting in a nail salon isn’t on the agenda for 2021, that doesn’t mean she can’t enjoy a good pampering. There are multiple mobile salons and masseuses that will travel to homes while providing clean and safe pampering tools! Book her an afternoon of relaxation.
Diffuser and Oils
Essential oils not only smell great, but they have therapeutic properties. Order her a beautiful diffuser and a sample set of oils for her to try.
Spoil her with an entire box of goodies! You can even opt to gift the first box and she can continue the subscription if she loves it.
Personalized Water Cup
Water is essential to a healthy pregnancy and successfully keeping a milk supply afterward. Help make her water drinking a fun and happy experience. Find a large tumbler and have it personalized.
No matter how you shower her, know that your love will be received and cherished!
