How is your Christmas shopping going so far? Perhaps you've been struggling to figure out exactly what gift will really wow mum-to-be this year... don't worry, we've got your back. To help inspire you, we’ve put together a list of 12 awesome Christmas gift ideas that are guaranteed to make your Soon Mum super happy on Christmas morning!
1. Babymoon Package Similar to the Honeymoon that comes after the wedding, the ‘babymoon’ comes before the baby, and is an increasingly popular trend giving you a chance to refresh, reflect and rejoice over exciting new changes to come. Byron at Byron offers a wonderfully relaxing 3 night Babymoon Package … or check out our previous blog on the Top 5 Babymoon Locations for further inspiration!
2. Elizabeth Maxi Maternity Dress This vibrant maxi has been quite rightly described as "the perfect Christmas Day dress" - with its festive colours/design and free-flowing wrap front tie closure. But what expecting Mums love the most about this comfortable and stylish seasonal classic is that it looks and fits beautifully both throughout pregnancy and beyond childbirth.
3. Tankini Swimsuit
Of course, it wouldn’t be an Australian Christmas without the summer essentials… and this Tankini Swimsuit ticks all the boxes for expecting Mums looking to enjoy the water over Christmas break. Style, comfort and functionality make a winning combination for a much-appreciated gift… read more about our Tankini Swimsuit here!
4. All Natural Skin Care There are a number of natural skin care products that are purposefully designed to compliment the natural glow of expecting mums, with no harmful chemicals or additives. Mum-To-Be currently have an excellent range of cosmetic special offers for Christmas, and Bump Box put together convenient cosmetic gift packs for pregnant ladies that include a little bit of everything they’ll need.
5. Bettina Feeding Top
Whilst on the topic of value and practicality, our Bettina Feeding Top is another excellent Christmas gift idea that is made to be worn both during pregnancy and beyond. Unwrapping something that looks as good as this AND has such functional feeding options is bound to excite any expecting Mother!
6. Pregnancy Massage An effective treatment for reducing stress, discomfort and muscle tension - Mums-to-be will be eternally grateful to the one who leaves this therapeutic gift under the tree. Pregnancy massage specialists are common right around the country, with Nurtured Birth operating just down the road from our Melbourne Soon Store! They even offer a mobile massage service if you can't make it to their Windsor therapy rooms.
7. Denim Essentials Every expecting-Mum needs a quality pair of maternity custom tailored jeans, period. It’s something you simply can’t go without. The Blaze Denim is our best-selling maternity denim, offering an unbeatable combo of comfort and style in an everyday denim. As Bec Judd discovered for herself, these maternity jeans are seriously practical throughout pregnancy and beyond, stating “I may just live in these forever- so comfy”.
8. Soon Gift Voucher If you like the look and sound of our clothing products, but aren’t confident picking items for your pregnant loved-one, we have the perfect solution! Shopping for clothes can be a personal experience at the best of times… throw in the challenges of a changing body… and a gift voucher so that expecting-Mums can come in and try the clothes on for themselves in our comforting boutique store may be the perfect gift this Christmas.
9. The Bednest
Thinking ahead with your present? The Bednest is an innovative new product from Danish By Design that allows Mum and Bub to co-sleep safely and comfortably… making it a really valuable and meaningful gift for any expecting or new mum.
