I’m at the end of my pregnancy and Christmas is around the corner. Double hooray! As we get closer to my favorite holiday, my family keeps asking me “What do you want for Christmas?”
That’s tough to answer because I have 5 1/2 weeks left until the baby’s here, so I don’t want MORE maternity clothes, but I can’t ask for post-partum clothes because I have no idea what my size will be after delivery.
I’ve tried to think of some stuff that will tie in with the new baby and here’s what I’ve come up. Below are some unique gift ideas to give a new or expectant mom for Christmas.
Confession: It’s not on the list but would make a great gift… just this morning I purchased myself a pair of slippers online. I ask for a pair every year, and I really wanted these (they’re black with sequins and fur!)…so I told my husband we can wrap them and put them under the tree from Chloé. Not really the way Christmas should be done, but I’m desperate for a new pair!
For the Fashionista Mom
Teething Bling by Smart Mom Jewelry
Babies love to grab and chew and because of that most moms don’t wear jewelry when their kids are young. Teething Bling is trying to change that and has created a fashionable necklace that serves a dual purpose!
It’s made from the same material as most teething toys and it’s safe for curious babies to handle and chew. Teething Bling products are non-toxic, phthalate, BPA, PVC, latex and lead free and all pendants come with a breakaway clasp as an added safety measure.
Celebrity moms like Tori Spelling, Ali Landry, Angela Basset and Holly Robinson Peete are wearing it too! I have three and can’t wait to use them with my new baby boy. I think I might gift one to my mom too. This could make a for a fun gift for an aunt or caregiver too!

For the Expectant Mom
Towards the end of pregnancy it’s tough to find any comfortable position. You can’t sleep on your back or stomach, and even sleeping on your side can lead to leg cramps. I’ve noticed I’m even uncomfortable sitting at my work desk for long periods of time.
So, giving a massage as a gift to a loved one or friend is a fantastic idea as it will really help the mommy-to-be in such a physically stressful time.
Price: An hour-long session can cost anywhere from about $60 to $150, depending on where you live.
