Holiday Gift Round-Up for Your Very Favorite Pregnant People

While everyone loves shopping for a new baby – those teensy shoes! – you may feel a little mystified about how to gift all the pregnant people in your life. Here at Beli, we chat with a ton of moms-to-be every single day, and we asked a bunch of them what they’d love most this holiday season. So without further ado, we present our holiday gift round-up for your very favorite pregnant people. Trust us, she’ll love it.

Hatch Belly Oil 

hatch-body-oil

Hatch is one of those Cool Pregnant Women brands, and their signature Belly Oil is, in a word, divine. We’ll be real – whether or not you get stretch marks during pregnancy mostly comes down to maternal factors, pregnancy factors, and good ol’ genetics. But there is some evidence that specific oils, including Argan, sweet almond, and rosehip, can all improve skin elasticity, which may help prevent stretch marks.Belly Oil is, in a word, divine.

But there is some evidence that specific oils, including Argan, sweet almond, and rosehip, can all improve skin elasticity, which may help prevent stretch marks.

But honestly, whether it works for stretch marks or not, the Belly Oil from Hatch is a fabulous gift idea. The quick-dry oil is infused with all the right botanicals to hydrate and nourish dry, itchy skin and it smells absolutely incredibly. Plus, the chic packaging means all you need is a ribbon.

Prenatal Spa Gifts

Two words – prenatal massage. Her aching back, stiff calves, and sore feet will love you forever and forever. A gift card for a prenatal massage at a local spa will vary in price, but expect to drop somewhere between $85 and $150. If that’s too spendy, opt for a pedicure instead. She’ll get the pretty toes and a soothing foot massage.

Pajamas & Slippershatch-24-7-jumpsuit

Hatch made our list again with The 24/7 Feeding Jumpsuit. Technically, yes, it’s for the postpartum stage, but it’s so generously cut that she can easily wear it during the most cumbersome parts of pregnancy. And with the pretty pointelle pattern and front patch pockets, she’ll never want to take it off.

Luckily, it’s one of those pieces that goes anywhere – from the bed (literally) to the hospital and everywhere in between. Plus, it comes in three great colors, so there’s an option for everyone.

Pair it with a pair of cozy slippers – we love the Wool Dwellers from Allbirds, which are easy to slip on when you can’t even see your feet anymore, made with upcycled scraps, and have that oh-so-important grippy bottom to keep mama-to-be stable.

Boppy Total Body Pillow

Yes, they’re unwieldy and not the prettiest addition to a perfectly made-up bed, but body pillows are a lifesaver during pregnancy.

There are a ton of them out there, but we're partial to this one from Boppy. It'll support her from head to toe. Plus, it’s soft enough to fold into any position, making it versatile all day long and after baby comes, and the removable cover is machine washable.

Lily Jade Diaper Bag

A really great diaper bag is a fabulous gift idea that will absolutely be used and thoroughly enjoyed. And Lily Jade does it right.

lily-jade-diaper-bay
The Tote in Old English Leather, but honestly, you can’t go wrong with any of these diaper bags. They’re made with full grain or vegan leather in a range of stylish colors, with all sorts of conversion options and handy pockets for serious organization. It’s leaps and bounds ahead of standard (read: awful) diaper bags that are function first and style nowhere to be found. She’ll use this long after that baby grows up, trust us.

Beli Prenatal Vitamins

For the newly pregnant, the way pregnant, or the hoping-to-become pregnant, a subscription to Beli prenatal vitamins is an incredibly thoughtful and generous gift idea. They’re formulated for all stages of pregnancy, from preconception to postpartum. That’s key, because specialized nutrition is essential during the preconception period and no less important after baby makes his or her grand debut. 

beli-prenatal-vitamins
Beli for Women is one of just a few prenatal vitamins on the market meeting current recommendations for specific nutrients, so it’s very likely an upgrade. And since it’s perfectly safe – and even encouraged! – to switch prenatal vitamins, treat her to a no-nausea, science-backed blend that will support her and baby for the whole wild ride.

Additional Resources
