It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And there’s no better way to pamper the mums-to-be in your life than with a heartfelt Christmas present to show your love. Sure, you can get them a run-of-the-mill gift, but pregnancy-related gifts that will be useful in their motherhood journey will be all the more special.
No need to rack your brains for Christmas gift ideas for pregnant mums in Singapore. From practical gifts to items for some well-deserved self-care, here’s our curated list of the best Christmas presents that expecting mummies will adore!
1. Diaper Bag
Without a doubt, diaper bags are a must-have for parents of newborns. We recommend choosing a diaper bag that is lightweight and roomy enough to carry all the essentials such as diapers, wipes, bottles and more that mums will need while on the go.
Diaper bags can come in many forms, from backpacks and tote bags to more compact hands-free waist bags. It’s best to get one that is stylish — that way, she can continue using it long after baby’s diaper-wearing years!
2. Pregnancy Journal
Welcoming a new baby into the family is an exciting time, filled with plenty of emotions and new experiences. A pregnancy journal can encourage mum to take a moment out of her busy day to rest and reflect.
It’s great for keeping track of major milestones and documenting her feelings and thoughts throughout the pregnancy and postpartum period. Like our diaries from childhood, it can also help her manage and express her emotions, or serve as a beautiful keepsake to look back on in the future.
3. Pregnancy and Lactation Bakes & Treats
Mum-to-be is eating for two, so it’s more important than ever that she nourishes her body with nutritious foods! Consider gifting her delicious baked goods specially created to help lactating mothers boost their milk production.
At Marian's Lactation Boost, our range of pregnancy teas and brownies; as well as lactation-boosting cookies, muffins, and vegan cupcakes are lovingly made with superfood ingredients designed to give mummies a headstart in building their breastmilk supply. They are excellent as a wholesome breakfast or energising snack — truly a gift that keeps on giving!
4. Stretch Mark Cream
Pregnant mamas deserve to be pampered, and giving them a hydrating stretch mark cream for Christmas can do just that. Often referred to as belly or tummy butter, these moisturisers combat the itchy, dry skin or stretch marks that many mothers experience during pregnancy. They also improve skin elasticity and offer relief to stretched skin.
5. Aromatherapy Gift Set
Essential oils have long been used to create a relaxing home environment. They can be very therapeutic for expecting mums, helping her unwind, improve sleep, and relieve discomfort or pent-up stress. Be sure to select essential oils that are safe for use during pregnancy, such as lavender, rose, peppermint, chamomile, and geranium.
6. Pregnancy Tea
A warming cup of lactation tea not only comforts the soul and refreshes the mind but does wonders for building milk supply and producing thicker hindmilk. Our Trimester 3 Mango Rooibos Tea helps strengthen the body and prepare expecting mums for birth.
For an all-in-one perfect Christmas gift, check out our New Born Gift Set, which comes with two lactation teas, a box of breastmilk storage bags, a wet bag and a greeting card. Alternatively, if they are not a fan of tea, you can also consider gifting them with a set of cold-pressed lactation juice.
Whether it’s for your partner, friend, family member, or even yourself, these gift ideas are sure to bring a smile to any pregnant mums’ face this festive season. Visit Marian’s Lactation Boost for your Christmas gift shopping today!
