With Mother’s Day around the bend (bump?), we didn’t want to forget all of our expectant mamas this week. Check out some great gift ideas for all of you mamas-to-be and head to the bottom of the post to enter to win everything you see here!
The Big Fat Activity Book For Pregnant People, by Jordan Reid and Erin Williams: We’re long-time fans of Ms. Jordan Reid, so when we heard she was writing an activity book for pregnant mamas with her business partner, the brilliant Erin Williams, we knew we had to not only get our hands on the book, but share it with all of you. The Big Fat Activity Book is the must-have book for pregnant millennial moms. It’s a fantastic mix of hilarious puzzles, coloring book pages, and snarky word searches, but also chock full of poignant, moving, and sweet essays. You’re going to laugh, you’re going to cry, and you’ll probably pee a little, but we highly recommend gifting The Big Fat Activity Book to any pregnant mamas you know.

skinnytees: If you’re looking for clothing which will easily transition from maternity-wear to everyday wardrobe staples, look no further than skinnytees. Their butter soft shirts are one-size-fits-all (even pregnant mamas!) and are so super stretchy that they will fit your pregnant body, post-partum body and beyond. Their tank tops are perfect for summertime and layering all year round, and their t-shirts and long-sleeved shirts feel like a soft second skin on your new mama body. Plus, they’re ideal for breastfeeding since they can be pulled every which way and not change shape. skinnytees has partnered with Upward Bound House, whose mission is to eliminate homelessness among families with children in Los Angeles by providing housing, support, and advocacy; this Mother’s Day, skinnytees is giving away one skinnytee to a mother in need for every one item purchased from their website until May 9th. They will be hand delivering the skinnytees to the mamas in need for Mother’s Day. [Head to the bottom of the post to win $50 to skinnytees!]

This would make such a wonderful Mother’s Day gift for a pregnant mama; have everyone at the baby shower sign the bump! It is 100% baby safe and such a sweet memento of a special time in your life. It may seem as though you’ll be pregnant forever, but trust us, you won’t be, so check out this belly casting kit and cast some memories.

Parasol Diapers: One of the most desired baby gifts, which we never give, is always diapers! It’s not really fun to give diapers as a gift, we get it. However, when you’re giving an expectant mom Parasol Diapers, you’re not giving diapers, you’re gifting artwork. The artwork will eventually be shown on your baby’s bottom, but nevertheless, they are gorgeous diapers. These ultra-soft diapers can be ordered in a subscription (now there’s a gift!) so you never have to think twice about heading out for diapers. Parasol Diapers are fragrance free, chlorine free, lotion free, latex free, and hypoallergenic. Furthermore, with the Nordic Swan Eco-label, it certifies that Parasol diapers have fulfilled the most stringent environmental, climate and health criteria available in the industry.

NappieSack: As a pregnant mama, you’re not quite sure what essentials you’re going to need (or not need) when you leave the house with the baby. Luckily, there’s NappieSack! NappieSack is an organizational insert which efficiently transforms any regular handbag into an organized diaper bag. It has 15 pockets, so it holds everything for baby and more. Plus, it’s lightweight and chic, so you could easily use it on its own, too. It’s a great gift for any mom because it lasts long after baby needs diapers; organize your own life with the NappieSack and you’ll never lose your keys again!

Cristina V. Jewelry, Silver Chain Layer Bracelet: It’s not a Mother’s Day gift guide if it doesn’t include some jewelry, and we’re big fans of Cristina V. Cristina, a new mama herself, creates jewelry from the heart; she hand picks every bead, stone, clasp and wire, and creates modern jewelry which is destined to become heirloom pieces. The Silver Chain Layer Bracelet is her most popular one; each bracelet is made up of 2 inches of faceted stones, surrounded on either side by a new signature chain. Bracelets are a wonderful gift for a mom-to-be because she doesn’t have to remove them due to swelling! [Head to the bottom of the post to enter to win a set of 3 chain layer bracelets!]

They are created from food-based ingredients- baking soda, citric acid, oils, herbs, flowers, salts, and pure, therapeutic grade essential oils, which means they are safe for everyone.
