Pregnancy Gift Ideas

Celebrating the exciting journey of pregnancy, one that is filled with unique experiences, memorable milestones, and profound changes, creates lasting memories that will be cherished for a lifetime. What better way to honour and support the expectant mothers in your life than with a tailored gift, addressing their unique needs during each trimester? As we move through the stages of pregnancy, we'll explore how aromatherapy can take centre stage in your self-care routine, offering a soothing and nurturing touch along the way.

If you are inspired by this pregnancy gift guide, why not have fun building your own Pregnancy Gift Bundle, using our Build Your Own Bundle feature. We will carefully gift wrap, handwrite your personalised gift message and ship directly to the mum-to-be. 

The First Trimester: Navigating the Early Stages

The first trimester can be a challenging time for many mums-to-be. Nausea, fatigue, and an array of emotions often accompany this period. Your gift bundle should be designed to offer energy, comfort, and support, making use of the powerful effects of aromatherapy to enhance the experience. Energising and uplifting scents, such as ginger, lemon, and peppermint, can help alleviate symptoms like nausea and fatigue.

Here are some energising gifts you could includes in your first trimester gift bundle: 

  • Ginger Tea: A zesty ginger tea blend can help alleviate nausea and soothe an upset stomach. We recommended Morning Kick by Bird & Blend. This delicious tea is Amazonian charged yerba mate leaf with lemon & ginger, to put a zesty zing in your day. It’s also a great alternative to coffee. 
  • Peppermint & Spearmint Lip BalmJust as a drop of peppermint oil placed under the nose is said to help soothe feelings of nausea
  • Energising Facial Steam: Salt + Steam’s Rough Night Facial Steam is our go-to here. A refreshing uplifting boost of Peppermint and Lemon.
  • A Silk Sleep Mask: Perfect for naps during the day and supporting deeper sleep at night. Check out our beautiful handmade Liberty London silk sleep masks. 
  • Bath Salts: For a soothing and relaxing soak, providing a moment of tranquillity amidst the early pregnancy challenges. 

This is the perfect time to send one of our Letterbox Bundles of self-care essentials. Take a browse through our Energy and Sleep Letterbox Gifts. 

The Second Trimester: Embracing the Glow

The second trimester often brings a burst of energy and a radiant glow. Your gift box for this stage should focus on celebrating this beautiful time. Floral aromatherapy, such a rose, geranium and jasmine are great to include in your self-care routine at this stage. 

These scents are associated with pleasant and positive emotions. The second trimester is often considered the "honeymoon phase" of pregnancy, where many women experience increased energy and an overall sense of well-being. Floral aromatherapy can complement this mood and add to the celebratory atmosphere of this phase.

Here are some gifts you could includes in your second trimester gift bundle: 

  • Natural Skincare Products: Pamper her with gentle, pregnancy-safe skincare products, we absolutely love Salt + Steam and Nathalie Bond 100% natural skin care products. Choose from facial steams, lip balms, oils and body scrubs
  • A Daisy Candle Hand-poured natural, vegan soy wax & dyes and lightly scented with geranium & bergamot essential oils. 
  • Body Oil: Helping to prevent stretch marks and soothe sensitive skin 
  • Flower Child Facial Steam: A beautiful uplifting blend of Rose Orange & Flower Petal
  • Tranquil Room Spray: A delicious blend of Rose & Patchouli
  • Fruity, Sweet Tea Blends: Strawberry Lemonade and Blueberry & Peach Tea are fun gifts to add to your second trimester gift bundle 

We highly recommend the Bloom collection by Nathalie Bond to symbolise this exciting time in the pregnancy journey. We recommened exploring our Glow Bundle collection. 

The Third Trimester: Preparing for Arrival

As the due date approaches, the third trimester is all about preparation and anticipation. A gift box during this stage should focus on comfort, nesting, and readiness. To enhance the experience, consider including calming and grounding aromatherapy scents such as lavender and chamomile. These scents can promote relaxation and help channel energy inwards, allowing the expectant mother to find moments of calm amidst the excitement and anticipation of childbirth. 

Here are some calming gifts you could includes in you third trimester gift bundle: 

  • Linen or Organic Cotton Oversized Hair Scrunchie: Providing comfort and convenience while being gentle on the hair and scalp.
  • Rest Essential Oil Blend: A calming and soothing essential oil blend to promote relaxation and better sleep.
  • Calming, Grounding Room Spray: Creating a tranquil atmosphere in the hospital room or at home for improved rest and relaxation.
  • Calming Herbal Tea: A calming herbal tea to help her unwind and get a good night's sleep during this stage of pregnancy. We love Dozy Girl by Bird & Blend. 
  • Beauty Sleep Facial Steam - A calming blend of Lavender, Rose & Clary Sage, perfect to pamper yourself with in the evening before bed. 

These items are well-suited for the third trimester, offering comfort and relaxation as she prepares for childbirth and the arrival of the baby. Explore our calming sleep gift bundles for more inspiration.
