The Expecting Mother's Day Gift Guide

With Mother’s Day around the corner (and shipping speeds slower than ever) it’s time to start thinking about the moms in your life and ways to make them feel valued and loved. This year, especially after the year we’ve collectively trudged through, showing them that their daily efforts and sacrifices are seen is crucial.

We’ve collected a bunch of meaningful and restorative style gifts that are perfect for not only seasoned moms, but also for moms who are expecting because we know from experience that from the minute you get that positive test result you’re already setting aside your own life to care for another.

Feel free to share this list with your significant other as a subtle hint.

Badass Necklace from Hidden Heart Company

Nothing says ‘badass’ like an expecting mother. Carrying on with her life while growing a human! We’re loving the message in Morse Code, it’s like a secret mantra for the mama-to-be.

$31.50 - Available on Etsy.com

Pregnancy Print from Herb'n Sage

Nothing turns a house into a home like artwork. This beautiful print will look gorgeous on the walls and will be a loving reminder of her pregnancy journey. 

$5.50 - Available on Etsy.com

Kibou Fanny Pack


Fanny packs are back and we are here for it! We’re loving that these have a built-in waterproof pocket for wipes (or soiled clothes) and a detachable changing pad that unfolds from the back flap. 

$89 - Available on kiboubag.com

Sustainable Ma Wovens Yoga Mat

Local Portland Business, Female Founded

If her home gym could use a little makeover, look no further than the Ritual Rug. This thing is pretty enough to hang on your wall! Made with organic help and non-toxic foam, these yoga mats are comfortable, grippy, and oh-so-pretty. Namaste, mama!

$188 - Available on ma-wovens.com

Comfy Kicks from Allbirds

My bestie gave me a pair of these a couple years ago and they are still my go-to kicks for comfort. These shoes are super lightweight but still have a lot of cushion to keep those tired feet moving. 

$95 - Available on allbirds.com

Macrame Coasters from Twisting Tide Designs

Mama’s hydration game is going to be strong once baby comes. Water is a critical component of breastfeeding! Since she’ll be downing that H2O, these adorable boho macrame coasters will give her the perfect resting spot for drinks.

New Threads from Of An Origin


No one is ready to retire their wardrobe like a new mama. Spruce up her closet with some new, sustainable threads designed for new moms! This capsule collection of nursing-friendly pieces are definitely fashion forward and don’t scream ‘I need easy access to my milk makers’. Perfect for working mamas or mothers who are searching for style and functionality. 

Starting at $26 - Available on OfAnOrigin.com

Dainty Mama Necklace from Caitlyn Minimalist

I tend to shy away from ‘mama’ gear only because typically, I’m such a hot mess that it’s pretty obvious that I’m a mom, no need to plaster it on my body. But this necklace is so pretty and dainty, I love it! This would have me proudly rocking my mama gear.

$37 - Available on Etsy.com

Blendjet Portable Blender

Is there anything better than a fresh smoothie (or milkshake)? For a pregnant woman, definitely not. We love that this little blender is battery powered (charged with a USB) so she can easily take it on the go. Smoothies on demand, baby!

$99.95 (on sale for $49.95) - Available on Blendjet.com

Birth Journal


This sentimental gift will bring happy tears to any pregnant mama! This guided journal is full of inspiration and encouragement for documenting her birth story in her own words and handwriting. The gorgeous design paired with high quality assembly make this the perfect gift that is almost guaranteed to become her favorite heirloom. 

$40 - Available on thebirthjournal.com

Lavender Foot Soak

On this list of aches and pains I experienced during pregnancy, tired, aching feet would definitely be at the top. Carrying extra weight really does a number to those feet and this lavender foot soak provides relief for sore feet with epsom salts infused with essential oil and flowers from a lavender farm in Washington. 

$12 - Available on pelindabalavender.com

Rompers For Days 


This romper is quite possibly the most comfortable thing I’ve ever worn. The unique design accommodates pregnant bellies and easy breastfeeding access while keeping her style on point. Available in gorgeous colors, these rompers are definitely an upgrade to sweats.  

$75 - Available on momperromper.com

Bath Time

Nothing feels better than floating in water when you’re pregnant. Taking time to slow down and enjoy a quiet soak is a practice in self-care every mama needs. I’d love it if someone bought me this bamboo bathtub tray (hint hint) from Royal Craft Wood and this rainbow bath pillow as an endorsement of self-care. Complete the look with a microfiber hair towel. Mom is now officially a goddess. $47, $15 and $25, respectively.

Anything from Bump Boxes

Founded by Parents

If you’re still struggling with the perfect gift, you can’t go wrong with a Bump Box. Each box is tailored to a  trimester and they get it right every time, whether it’s the first, second, third or even fourth! It’s the gift that takes the guesswork out of wondering what your expecting girlfriend would want. Nailed it!
