10 Best Gifts for Expecting Moms in 2022
With Mother’s Day 2022 (May 8) quickly approaching, it’s time to start thinking about what to give the moms in your life – expectant moms, included!
Many mamas-to-be are graciously showered with gifts for the baby, but they deserve some love too! We’ve put together ten of the best gifts for expecting moms that will make her feel comfortable, relaxed and, most importantly, loved.
So, let’s get to it…
A Sonogram Picture Frame
You know that ultrasound photo that she proudly displays on the fridge beneath a magnet? It deserves to be framed! Afterall, it is her baby’s first photo! Engraved with the quote “Love at First Sight,” you can personalize this sonogram picture frame with the baby’s name and expected arrival date.
A Hospital Bag
As an expecting mother, you tend to get so busy preparing for the baby’s arrival that you forget to prepare for yourself. That’s why this monogrammed weekender bag, ahem hospital bag, would make the perfect gift. Help her pack it up with the things she’ll need for her hospital stay, such as a comfy robe, slippers, cell phone charger, snacks, deodorant, lotion, lip balm and other must-have items.
A Baby Journal
Give her the gift of a timeless keepsake. This personalized baby journal provides mom with a place to write down all the things she wants her baby to know. Just imagine how cool it will be for her future child to read stories about their earliest moments.
Let’s be real, pregnancy is no picnic. Between the restless nights and swollen feet, moms-to-be are uncomfortable and exhausted. A soft robe is one way to provide her with a touch of comfort. Plus, once the baby is born, she’ll find it handy to throw on in between feedings. We recommend this incredibly soft fleece robe by UGG or this lightweight robe by Athleta.
Remember those swollen feet we mentioned earlier… it’s one of the most common and frustrating parts of pregnancy! With her socks and shoes not fitting quite right, she will surely appreciate a nice pair of slippers. We love these indoor/outdoor suede leather slippers by Birkenstock.
We all know that importance of hydration, but getting enough H2O is especially important to expectant mothers. This skinny stainless tumbler is both cute and functional! Plus, the personalization will make her feel extra special.
A Body Pillow
Despite being utterly exhausted, sleeping can be very difficult for pregnant women. But, there’s something that can help… a pregnancy body pillow! Designed to provide comfort and help relieve common pregnancy symptoms such as heartburn, a pregnancy body pillow is the gift she never knew she needed. Not sure which to buy?

Make her baths even more relaxing with pregnancy bath salts. This Belly & Body Bath Soak by Hatch Collection combines ingredients like organic coconut milk and Himalayan sea salt to create a relaxing experience that will also relieve sore and swollen muscles and moisturize skin.
Leggings are a pregnant girl’s best friend! And, that’s probably not going to change once she’s a mom. Keep her comfortable and stylish with a pair of maternity leggings. We love the Spacedye Love the Bump Leggings by Beyond Yoga. They have an over-the-belly waistband that can be folded down – giving her support during every phase of her prenatal and postnatal journey.
Help the mama-to-be look and feel her best! Self-care products, such as body lotion, hand soap and shampoo are practical gifts that she will surely appreciate. The Honest Mama Bump Care Kit by The Honest Company features a variety of products, including stretch mark preventing body butter and cooling jelly, designed exclusively for expectant moms.
