Some of our most significant celebrations are when we find out a close friend, spouse, or family member is expecting especially if it’s been a long journey to parenthood for them. So of course we want to shower them with the best gifts and sweetest stocking stuffers for an expectant mother we can find.

If you’re hunting for stocking stuffers for new parents and ideas for moms I’ve got you covered with something for everyone. And if you need too, use these gift ideas for birthdays and Mother’s Day too!

Stocking Stuffers For Expectant Mother

Rock The Bump Body Butter- A good stocking stuffer for pregnant women is body butter to help hydrate and nourish mama’s growing belly. It’s made with shea butter, vitamin E, and avocado oil and moisturizes for 24 hours.

It is made without petrolatum, or parabens, and is fragrance-free.

Mama Glow On Body Oil- Help the soon-to-be mom feel pampered with Glow on body oil for a nice after-shower glow.

  • Unscented and organic.
  • Made with avocado, coconut, and jojoba seed oil.

Kindle- A device to add to your hospital bag! If you prefer to read or listen to some audiobooks while waiting for your new bundle to arrive the Kindle is the perfect stocking stuffer for expectant mothers and parents.

This is considering mom is not in active labor and doesn’t have an epidural. Otherwise, both mom and dad have work to do! 🙂

Kindred Bravely Gift Card- A gift card is always an excellent stocking stuffer idea for expectant mothers and new moms alike. A digital gift card is also available.

You can purchase a gift card in the amounts of $25-$250.

Grow With Me Underwear- A simple idea to fold and place into the expectant mother’s stocking are these Grow With Me Maternity & Postpartum Briefs. They’re super stretchy to accommodate a growing belly and you can wear them postpartum.

They also come in thong and hipster style.

  • Comes in three colors.
  • Full coverage.
  • Lightweight.
  • Breathable.
  • Machine washable.

Swell Relief Duo- I haven’t met a pregnant woman yet that didn’t at least have a small amount of swelling during her pregnancy.  Compression socks are great to help decrease swelling.

The Hatch duo comes with compression socks and soothing cream.  Made with aloe, chamomile, ginger, and a few other ingredients.

Sleep Mask- It can get difficult as the pregnancy goes further along to get a good night’s sleep. Help the mother-to-be get a decent night’s sleep with a sleep mask and later she can use it while in the hospital.

100% silk.

Vanilla Vibes Perfume- One of my favorite perfumes is Juliette Has A Gun with its vanilla tones and light scent it’s ideal for a pregnant mama who wants to smell and look good without it being too overwhelming.

If you’re looking for something for your spouse 0.25 ounces is the perfect size for a stocking stuffer for your pregnant wife.

The Doula Deck- The Doula Deck is something I wish I could have given EVERY SINGLE patient I have taken care of over the last 15 years as a labor nurse.  

These are beautiful affirmations for moms to have the courage and power to listen to her body, guidance for the new mom, and reminders on how to look for strength.

A set of 78 cards.

Heartbeat Necklace- A beautiful sentimental first-trimester stocking stuffer idea is a heartbeat necklace. Ask the expecting mom for a copy of the first ultrasound image with the sound waves of the heartbeat.

Have a meaningful necklace made she will never want to take off and will thank you for years to come!

Milk & Honey Bath Soak- Soak the discomforts of pregnancy away!  

Simply add a quarter cup to warm running bath water and enjoy! It’s made with lavender and eucalyptus oil.

Billie Razor- At some point, shaving becomes a challenge, am I right? It’s difficult to see and bend over! As our belly grows, we spend time trying to figure out how to tie our shoes and how we’re going to shave.

The razor comes with a magnetic holder that you can place in the shower so it’s there when you need it.

They encased the Billie razor with charcoal shave soap to make for a smooth glide and I promise the cream is even better. This is seriously the best razor I’ve ever used.

Razor Kit:

  • Handle.
  • Magic holder.

Compression Socks- For the long days at work, travel, or at home with your feet up compression socks are great to keep the blood flowing. A set of 3 pairs.

Baby Embroidered Sweater- The cutest little baby sweater you ever did see! A thoughtful gift for an expecting mother and a new mom.

An oversized chunky sweater for both babies and toddlers. Choose a color, and size, and add your baby’s name to it.

Socks- “Sorry I Just Can’t Today, I Am Growing A Tiny Human” socks. When mama flashes these pink socks that means give her a break. LOL. Stocking stuffers for an expectant mother that will tell you exactly how she’s feeling.

Pregnancy Prayer Journal- A journal to take you through each week of pregnancy, a space to write your feelings and thoughts, and a scripture from the bible.

The journal comes in ivory, navy, and gray.
