Valentine's Gifts for New or Expecting Mamas

With Valentine's Day around the corner, my husband and I have been chatting about plans and the odd recommended gifts popping up as ads online. This year will be little different in our household, compared to years past, as we plan to welcome our first child in April.

For him, I have browsed adorable daddy-daughter themed items. For me, his reading suggested "maternity sweater" or massage. While a massage sounds amazing right now, I wanted to dive into some self-care items that a new or soon-to-be mom would appreciate on Valentine's Day. Also, quick partner tip, do not buy her maternity clothes unless specifically asked.

  1. For The Working Mama

Chic Silicone Teething Necklace | $8.99

Our teething necklaces are made with food grade silicone beads, organically polish wood beads (where applicable), strong comfy silk cord and completed with a breakaway clasp for those grabby hands that like to pull. These silicone necklaces won't break, but simply just snap off your neck if pulled too hard. PLUS, they are chic enough to wear with or without baby.

2. For The Holistic Mama

New Mama Gift Set (2oz) | $26.00

This is a wonderful and thoughtful gift for a mother to be or for mother and baby. Includes Belly Butter which is full anti-oxidant rich oils and butters that bring moisturizing nutrients to tight, itchy skin, reducing chances of unsightly stretch marks. BABY BALM brings healing and soothing to irritated, cracked, painfully dry skin and works amazingly for diaper rash! Perfect for mothers and individuals with super sensitive skin looking for non-toxic and natural means of healing problem skin.

3. For The Summer Mama and Baby

No Bite Me Bug Repellent Soap | $8.95

This soap WORKS. We live in a natural, coastal area where the mosquitos seem to be the size of dragon flies at least by the appearance of our mosquito bites. This soap has 18 essential oils sure to keep all those pesky bugs away for 3-4 hours after use, kid safe, and did we mention it will also reduce the itching and swelling of any bite! As always no chemicals or deet in our soap will keep your skin happy and with no bugs around you will stay happy. Use it in the morning before you garden, fish, golf, or just before morning playtime.

4. For The Expecting Mama

Anti-Aging Nighttime Repair Serum | $28.00
