We get it, you’re cramming because you didn’t know what else your BFF momma might still need. She’s a brand new mom and you want to give her something that is going to be useful and meaningful for her as she starts this journey. Or you may be a mom yourself, wanting to give yourself something to look forward to this holiday season.
Well, here’s the good news: while there are so many pregnancy and breastfeeding stuff out there to choose from, we are here to help you narrow down the list and give you not only useful but meaningful and practical items that mommas will surely love!
Yes, the regular leggings just won’t cut it. The fit, the support, and especially the soft, elastic band to cover the bump are what other mommas swear by maternity leggings.
Our favorite pick: 🌟The Black Out Moto Leggings from Preggo Leggings🌟This pair is just as versatile as it is stylish. Wear it during the day when you have to run errands and dress it up for the next date night👌
Bonus pick: 🌟Snapback Postpartum Leggings from Preggo Leggings🌟High waist, compression leggings but specifically designed for new moms to keep us comfy while giving our booty a nice lift😉
We’re not kidding, mommas NEED this. Especially during the later stages of pregnancy when finding the right resting or sleeping position is getting extremely difficult and daily side belly and back pains become almost inevitable.
Our favorite pick: 🌟Bellifly Pregnancy & Breastfeeding Pillow from Close To Mom🌟While there may be so many good options out there for maternity pillow, what separates this from the pack is its size. It’s so compact and yet it does its job wonderfully well. You can also use it once the baby arrives as support during breastfeeding/bottle-feeding! If you want to see other mommas demo how they use the item, you can check their Instagram page here.
Maternity and Nursing Bra
Contrary to what some people may think, getting yourself the right maternity undergarments is not a luxury, it’s a necessity. We can’t stress enough how our regular, pre-pregnancy clothes just won’t give us the kind of support our body needs. A good maternity bra should be able to support your growing breast size while providing you with a stable back support and easy to wear/remove function for when you have to breastfeed
Why we can 100% recommend our own collection from You! Lingerie: Soft, comfy material, 4-6rows of hook back closure for stable back support, and very stylish.
Our favorite pick: 🌟The Gia Maternity and Nursing Bra + Panty Set🌟
Bonus pick: 🌟Lennox Nursing and Pumping Bra🌟The perfect gift for mommas who use breast pumps
Going out of the house to get a massage is already a gigantic task to do when you’re a mom. We just don’t have the time and the energy to dress up and drive, so we need to get ourselves the best thing ever: a foot massager!
Our favorite pick: 🌟Miko Shiatsu Foot Massager🌟You can get it here.
Following the relaxation topic from item#4, another momma must-have are relaxation kits! It is in this kind of gift where you can add your own personal touch to it. From essential oils to bath bombs and to egg cream masks, every momma fantasizes about sneaking in a few minutes of a home spa.
Our favorite pick: 🌟Beets & Apples Relaxation Spa Kits🌟They have so many kits to choose from, most of which covers the basics: scented candle, bath bombs or soap, lip balm, etc. Get it here.
Cute Momma Statement Tops
For the proud momma / momma-to-be.
Our favorite pick: 🌟#MomLife Personalized Sweatshirt from Preggo Leggings🌟Customize the sweatshirt design by adding the year you first became a mom🥰
Mini Photo Printer
Yes, we have our phones and we can take cute pictures and post it on social media but there’s just an old school charm about printing the photos and saving them in an album that doesn’t go away. This is a nice, thoughtful gift for every momma who wants to capture every moment with the bubba.
Our favorite pick: 🌟IVY Mint Green Mini Photo Printer from Canon 🌟Easy printing steps from your phone and straight to the device👌
For the determining the best starting point for your bra size, please visit our How to Measure Your Bra Size page.
Wearing your bra, take a snug measurement around your ribcage, directly under your bust and keep level all around. If you get an odd number, round up to the next even number. This is your band size.
Take a loose measurement over the fullest part of your bust, keeping the tape level around your body. If needed, round up to the nearest inch.
Subtract your band size from your bust size, and use the difference to find your cup size on the chart below.
