Gift Ideas for the Expectant Mom

Thoughtful gift ideas to make the journey of expectant moms extra special

If you are you looking to spoil a new mom in your life? Well, you've come to the right place! At Nest & Sprout, we understand the joy and excitement that comes with welcoming a little one into the world. That's why we've put together this ultimate gift guide to help you find the perfect presents for the expecting mom.

Now - this is a list of physical gift ideas, and as a mom myself the best gift you can give a new mom is acts of service that help remove some of the responsibility from her plate. Bringing her a meal, providing gift cards for restaurants, house care, and child minding are really should be top gifting priorities. But we understand, not everyone wants to gift a service - sometimes you're into things.

So, without further ado, let's dive into our handpicked selection of gifts that will make any expecting mom's heart skip a beat - we've curated this list based on feedback from our customers. These are the gifts they remembered, they felt grateful for, and cherished in the months to come, or even decades later.

Comfort and Recovery Essentials

Welcome to the Comfort and Recovery Essentials section, where we believe in spoiling and supporting expecting moms with gifts that bring them comfort and aid in their postpartum journey. Some of these are practical, some are luxurious, and some are just to be spoiled.

We understand the ups and downs that come with pregnancy and childbirth, so we've carefully selected items that will make mom feel like she's wrapped in a warm hug.

Indulge in Comfort and Style: Sleepwear and Robes for the Expecting Mom

We often ask gift givers - what was the most memorable, or special gift, you received as a new mom. And for many they think of the softness of a new house robe, the comfort of a new pair of pyjamas or even a pair of warm house slippers.

These gifts are simple and yet thoughtful providing warmth and comfort during postpartum from someone special to you. As such, we've worked to expand our sleepwear collection to reflect this unique gift giving idea.

Its knee-length design, complete with a gorgeous printed tie, adds a touch of sophistication to any mom's wardrobe.
