It slides perfectly under any baby belly for added support during sleep, and can also be used for lumbar support or even knee support when sitting or kneeling.

9. Footwear

Toms

Mom’s feet are going to get uber tired, uber fast. The website Mom Loves Best recommends Toms as the best shoes for swollen feet during pregnancy. And how cute is this polka dot pattern? There’s nothing that says a gift of comfy shoes can’t also be a stylish choice!

Sketchers Boots

Skechers Performance Women's Go Walk Move Snow...

  • Outsole with traction lugs
  • Resalyte midsole cushioning

Sometimes an expectant mom just has to walk in the snow, however cold and uncomfortable it may be. These Sketchers are made of synthetic leather and have a rubber sole, meaning slips are a thing of the past. Give her these uber comfy boots and her tootsies will be safe and warm throughout the icy season.

These slip-ons are both stylish and warm with their faux-fur trim and lining, and mom will love that they’re slip-ons!

Diaper Bags

Graco Smart Organizer

Although we recommend asking mom before buying her a diaper back (it’s a very personal purchase to make!), The Bump says that this Graco bag is one of the best backpack bags out there. It’s a great alternative to more expensive backpack bags and still has tons of room for all she’ll need to carry: bottles, diapers, wipes, clothes, snacks, toys, books… you get the idea.

Maybe mom doesn’t want a huge diaper bag. Maybe she just needs a smaller bag that offers a few essentials. Voila! Skip Hop has just what she desires! This has a front pocket for keys and other small items, a mesh pocket for larger things like diapers and creams, and a zip-off changing pad for baby’s stinky emergencies.

 

With options like these, you can’t help but buy some awesome gifts for expectant moms! We know that she’ll appreciate the thought just as much as the item itself, but it sure can’t hurt if the item is fabulous. Making her feel good is a great way to make yourself feel good too, right? Right!
