Mother's Day Gifts: Special Edition for the Expecting Mama

As soon as we finished a year of weddings, the next thing we know it's babies, babies, babies! I have four sweet friends all expecting little ones this fall and what a start to it all it has been! Recently attending my college roommate's gender reveal party, I returned home wanting to send her something special with Mother's Day around the corner and now that she knows she is seeing PINK.

Check out these gift ideas to love on an expecting mama to celebrate their exciting news!

You can go to Kendra Scott, in-store or online, to design jewelry at the Color Bar with four shades of pink to choose from and more than twenty jewelry piece options depending on your price range. Here are a few examples of designs to get your mind flowing: top left, Genny pendant necklace in Rose for $45; top right, Jayna bracelet in Coral $80; bottom left, Dayla earrings in Coral $65; bottom right, Rena earrings in Rose $85. They can wear this special jewelry to showers, baby events and more! The mama could even pass it down to that little girl someday as something special she wore during that time.

OPI Soft Shades Nail Polish - It's a Girl! NL-H39

You could send her a gift certificate to have a little maternity pampering with a nail appointment or simply gift this OPI color, It's a Girl, for $8.

Baby Headband, Girl Headband, Peach Coral Lace Headband, Baby girl Headband, newborn headband, vintage headband toddler fabric headband

 And what baby girl doesn't need enough bows! As seen on Etsy for $8.

Again, some of my Kendra Scott jewelry favorites. Choose from the hues ranging from cobalt to baby blue, or head to their Color Bar to create your own piece within your budget. Special tip, if you shop on a Wednesday night, their Ladies Night, there is a 15% discount off either a certain style in any color or off your entire purchase. From left to right we have: top left, Tavi stud earring for $50; top right, Carissa pendant in light blue for $45; bottom right, Genny pendant in Iolite for $45; bottom right is the Elle earring in turquoise for $52.

For little boy mommies, here are two colors they may love, Essie Baby's Breath for $8 or
Baby Blue from Sephora by OPI for $9.50


And a baby with a mustache is always funny, found here for $10

But what about those that don't know yet OR want to find out to find out when the little one arrives? Some special gift ideas for the surprise-loving mama include... 
You could give mother of pearl jewelry, like these Kendra Scott Elle earrings for $52.

My good friend has created a side business for paintings called MereWil Designs. I had her take this phrase and paint it for me on a pale yellow background for an expecting mom who does not know the gender. Click on her link to check out her store and contact her for your own custom 10x10 canvas for just $25! Or, for a quick fix, you can print it and frame it yourself.

Regardless of boy or girl, this is funny and fitting at the same time. Find it here for $8.
