What about $50 gift hamper of Body Shop or Lush products. Tie it up with some big balloons to make it look special! Massages are tricky because it has to be a pregnancy massage (unless she uses it after baby). Regular massage isn’t safe for pregnant women.

Or some Peter Alexander pj’s. You have that in Canada? Nothing nicer than some fancy pants pyjamas!! They gift wrap nicely too

You’re in the province I think.  What about Rocky Mountain Soap Company?

I would put together a little basket of pampering items for Mom. At my baby shower, one of my co-workers gave me a big, comfy blanket that I use on my sofa to this day. Another co-worker gave me a gift certificate to a local spa/salon, and it was much appreciated to be able to go get something done for me, when all I was focusing on was baby.

Maybe get her some yummy chocolates, Earth Mama Angel Baby products for her (they have awesome nipple cream, post partum soaks, teas, lotions), and products like that?

What about a Burts Bees gift set for mamas – I know they have some great stuff.  You could also go to Davids Tea and buy her a nice collection of teas, calming and realaxing 🙂

I’d personally avoid Lush – I have multiple reasons but mostly because their fragrances are SO strong a lot of people find them over powering.

How about a “bubble bath in a basket” or “spa in a basket” sort of thing so she can relax and pamper herself when she wants/needs to?  Or a piece of art from the baby’s heartbeat (you might need to get it from her SO if you don’t want her to find out what you are getting her) https://www.etsy.com/shop/ArtsyVoiceprint?section_id=13783269

A pedicure? As someone who is swollen and 37 weeks pregnant, having someone give you a foot and calf massage, and fix the toes you haven’t reached in months is pretty fantastic!

The tea can be hit or miss, some of them you can’t drink pregnant so she’ll have to hold onto it. Bath’s are the same, you can take a lukewarm bath but not a hot one so they aren’t as fun.

My go-to shower present for Mom’s-to-be is a “Cranky baby basket” I put together with items from Shoppers. It usually includes:

Gripe water, temperature stickers you stick on a kids forehead, baby tylenol and aspirin (’cause they’ll always need it at 3am when the store is closed. lol), and some other misc items in a small caddy/basket

Mom’s always love the tylenol and aspirin because they never think to have those on hand. Not that you’re hoping their baby gets sick, but they all end up with a temperature and colic/gas eventually …
