So, if you want to pamper the mum in waiting, check out these gorgeous gift ideas…
Soothing hand cream
Between putting nursery furniture together, washing the baby’s clothing and cleaning the house in preparation, it’s likely mum’s hands will go through a lot – even before the little one arrives. To ensure that she’s looking after herself, you could treat her to a soothing hand cream. These lotions can help restore moisture and soften hard, dry skin, leaving fingers and palms feeling supple and smooth. It’ll no doubt come in handy once baby arrives too.
Cooling foot lotion
Carrying a growing baby around all day can be extremely tiring, and many mums suffer with sore, achy feet as a result. To help take the pressure off, a cooling foot lotion could make the ideal present. These products often include a whole range of soothing properties that work to relieve swollen, throbbing feet, such as tea tree and other essential oils. Some even contain antibacterial and antiseptic properties to help keep feet feeling fresh and clean.
Nourishing body balm
To help mum feel and look her best, a nourishing body balm could be the perfect gift. Keep an eye out for balms containing natural ingredients, such as shea butter. This is a gentle but effective moisturiser that is absorbed easily, leaving the skin feeling soft and supple. You may also want to look for balms containing avocado oil. Aside from it’s skin softening properties, this rich oil is renowned for its ability to reduce the appearance of scars.
Refreshing skin spritz
So that mum can keep her cool in the time running up to the arrival of her little one, why not treat her to a refreshing skin spritz? Designed to be sprayed across the face, neck and arms, this liquid offers an instantly soothing and calming sensation – a must for when the mum-to-be might be feeling a little flustered. These sprays can be found in a variety of fresh fragrances too, including lavender and peppermint.
Once the baby arrives, there’s no doubt mum will be extremely busy. So why not give her an excuse to pamper herself before the little one arrives with these gorgeous gift ideas?
