Best Mother’s Day Gifts for an Expectant Mom
Last updated April 2019
With Mother’s Day fast approaching, I thought I would put together some great gift ideas for a pregnant woman. If you’re the “gift getter” you can just forward this along with a little “hint hint” in the subject line. If nothing else, it will remind everyone that mother’s day is coming round the mountain.

Traditionally, harmony balls have been used in Bali and Mexico. Pregnant women wear it on a long necklace during their pregnancy so the gentle chime soothes the baby in the womb as the mother moves. After the baby is born, mom wears it on a shorter necklace, that it can be played with by the baby while nursing. It had believed to be extra soothed by the sound because he/she associated it during the time in the womb. You can find this one on Etsy and an assortment of different styles here.
If she’s concerned about some of the harsh chemicals that can go into regular polish – these high pigment nail lacquers are “8 Free” – no Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Dbp, Toluene, Camphor, Ethyl Tosylamide, Xylene, Or Tphp, in any of their formulas.
