Pregnancy Holiday Gift Guide
This is the softest, coziest sweater I’ve ever worn. It’s already a bit oversized, and the side slits allow for extra growth. If you get this sweater for a mom-to-be one size up from her normal size, she’ll be able to wear it throughout her pregnancy!

Expecting mamas need (and deserve) comfort, and that’s exactly what this slipper provides. The faux fur lining and EVA foam insole make these a dream to walk on. And the rubber sole means that she can wear these anywhere, not just in the house.
Pregnancy often means low energy, and the mama-to-be in your life may be struggling with not being able to partake in her usual winter activities. Enter the puzzle! This classic winter activity requires minimal energy and is easy to set aside whenever a nap is needed. Once she’s cozied up with a puzzle, a holiday movie, and a warm drink, skiing and snowshoeing won’t even cross the mind of your friend!

Sore feet are pretty much synonymous with pregnancy. If you know an expecting mother with painful, swollen feet, this foot spa is a must-give. She can fill it up with warm water and find relief for her tootsies, whether she’s on the couch or working from home.

Nothing feels more luxurious than a satiny robe. Your pregnant mama friend can wear this one over her jammies this winter with plenty of room for her growing belly.

This gift will be a lifesaver, both before and after baby. The Nest allows a tired mama-to-be to play music, start a timer, ask a question, and more without having to get up to look for her phone or remote. And after her baby comes, all she has to say is, “Hey, Google. Turn on white noise,” to help them stay asleep during the many stroller naps they will inevitably take.

Plus, Allbirds has chosen materials and production processes that generate less carbon, so you can feel good about this gift for multiple reasons!
