When do you give a pregnancy gift?
It is traditional to give a pregnancy gift to a mum-to-be towards the latter stages of the pregnancy. Usually in the third trimester is a good idea, which in pregnancy terms is the safer time period of a pregnancy. Many people are now giving a pregnancy gift at the baby shower (which is become ever more popular in the UK). Another up and coming trend here in the UK is to reward the new mother with a 'Push Present' once the baby has arrived.
What can you give as a pregnancy gift?
Items that make great pregnancy gifts are ones which treat the mum-to-be with a touch of luxury. Being pregnant is a toll on the body, so anything that is nourishing is always a great idea. Think luxury aromatherapy candles, chocolates and skincare products and you can't go wrong. Alcohol as a pregnancy present is a big 'no no' as it should not be consumed during pregnancy, maybe save it as a little push gift for after the baby arrives!
What is the best pregnancy gift?
The best gift to give for a pregnancy would either be something that is pampering for the mum or another thoughtful idea would be a keepsake of a very special time during her life.
Who gives a pregnancy present?
Pregnancy presents are usually given to the mum-to-be by close family and friends. Friends often give their gift during the baby shower party. Work colleagues will often club together within the company they work for to send their new mum-to-be a present through the post.
