When a mother is expecting, usually it is mostly about the baby. You have showers to celebrate this little life. We shower the mom with love & gifts for her new little one. I think most of the time though, we forget to pamper the mother as well. While expecting mothers are more than thankful for gifts for their baby, they (as mommas) should be pampered as well. I mean, pregnancy isn’t easy (and sometimes not very flattering either), so I think mommas should be treated as well.

When it comes to giving moms gifts – you want it to be unique. Something that they will like, they will use & they will enjoy. That is why I think it is important to find unique gifts for moms. Let’s pamper those mommas! Whether they just found out they are pregnant, are halfway through their pregnancy or have been a momma bear for years now – give a unique gift that will make her feel loved.

Unique Gifts for Moms – Expectant Mothers


One of the best gifts I think you can give an expectant mother is one that keeps on giving. Pregnancy is hard. Some months are harder than others, and of course the end result is something you look forward to, but sometimes you need a little something each month to keep you going. A pregnancy subscription gift is perfect for this, it gives the mom something to look forward to each month. Who doesn’t like to get packages?! You can pick different subscriptions with this, so the mom could get a box every month or every trimester (along with other options). But these boxes contain products that will pamper the soon to be momma!

Another great gift to pamper moms are GLOW products. They are designed for pregnant woman & are organic products which I love! Pregnancy is really hard on the body. So many women don’t feel comfortable in their own skin when they are pregnant. These products are awesome and will help pamper that momma!

Another gift you could consider for expectant mothers is a pregnancy journal. Especially if she plans to have more kids. Pregnancy can be such a special time & can differ so much between pregnancies. This way, moms can remember their pregnancies and keep track along all of their different pregnancy journeys.

Unique Gifts for Moms – New Mothers

An AWESOME gift that you can give to new moms is the gift of meals. You can do this if they have a baby shower or even just after they have the baby. The last thing a new mother wants to do after giving birth is prepare meals. Not only did they just give birth, but they are recovering from that AS WELL AS caring for a newborn. The simple gift of a meal can take away a lot of stress for a new mother. Not only that, it helps them eat well since they don’t have to do all the work of preparing and cooking a meal. Especially if they are nursing, it is important that they eat well so their bodies can keep producing. Benefits the baby as well 🙂

Another great gift is flowers. I know this might not seem unique but I recommend giving flowers for a few reasons. First, every woman likes flowers. You can never go wrong with them. Second, there is just something about flowers. You have them at funerals to celebrate life, so for me it’s special to have them at the birth. And lastly, because you can save them. I talked about in my nursery decorations post about creating a shadow box for the nursery. A part of this can be the flowers that they had when their baby was born. I still have the flowers (dried flowers now) that were given to me when my son was born. It just brings back good memories. I remember looking at those flowers when I was in the hospital with him.

Unique Gifts for Moms – Seasoned Mommas 🙂

One of the most important things in a mom’s life is her kids. She spends 9 months growing and caring for them (not to mention all of the changes to her own body) and then does everything she can to provide & care for them. It’s the hardest job, but also the most rewarding job. Kids are a mothers pride and joy. So, anything you give her around being a mom she will LOVE.

One gift moms love is jewelry. The best of both worlds come in when you can get personalized jewelry with your kids names or birthstones. Etsy has been the best place to find these gifts. If not jewelry, you can find other personalized gifts.

  1. Yes to all of this! As a Momma to a three year old and a 10 month old gifts for Mom are just as important as gifts for baby. If I have friends that want gift ideas for a baby shower I always give ideas for Mom gifts. Meals or gift cards for takeout meals are always on the top of the list.

  2. HI! I love your article! My kids are now 8 and 9, but I remember the infancy days fondly (with a little bit of exhaustion mixed in!). I would have loved for someone to send me meals back then! I’ll keep these items in mind the next time a baby comes into my life! Thanks!

  3. Hi Abby,
