I’d get her a really nice but not sexy bathrobe…something she can wear now and after the baby is born…she’ll appreciate it!  Get something really soft!

I presume you have her sizes? Cute bra and panty set… maybe not a thong, but like a sexy brief or bikini. Make sure the size you have is her current one. I’m pregnant right now and trying to fit into my bras still is very annoying. This way she can feel sexy and show off her beautiful belly.

Not to sound bad but I think that’s really weird and awkward to have a personal shower and expect people to buy you lingerie type gifts when you’re knocked up…

*end random thought*

On the other hand, I would get a cute PJ set, a flirty top and boyshorts type deal or a robe.

i agree with LLauRRa…. i would feel weird about buying lingerie for a pregnant woman… is this shower combined with the baby shower at all? because i could see that being both comical and awkward.

Do you know this girl very well? I think the robe idea was very smart, i would love a big soft warm robe right now! and if you dont know her very well i would almost say, give her some bath stuff or a foot massager… i know i loved smelly stuff when i was pregnant and i think i would feel weird if my FBIL’s wife gave me lingerie ATM..

I think a personal shower for a pregnant bride is weird, too. Anyway, I would focus on making sure the very short time she and her new husband will be a family of two, not three, is relaxing and special. Maybe a romantic evening kit that isn’t scandalous – candles, bubble bath, massage oils, a bottle of sparking cider. Or go outside the box and give her a gift certificate for a massage! Something to make her really enjoy her time as a bride and newlywed before she has to jump into being a mom.

I would also probably opt for some sort of relaxation gift (massage, candles, bubble bath, etc).

Since mommyhood is right around the corner, she’ll probably appreciate something to help her unwind at the end of the day instead of a skimpy thong that sparkles & shines lol 🙂

What about a mommy-to-be massage? I got a massage gift cert for my 7 month pregnant sister in law ans she still loves them. She just lays on her side =].

I think sexy stuff is a little weird for a pregnant woman, but that’s just me and my husband personally is not into it, but I know lots of men love to sex up their pregnant wife =].

Maybe a sweet nightgown? I love the bath robe idea. You could monogram her name on it too!

There’s this great thing at Sephora if you have one nearby.  It’s a body wash/lotion set called “the wedding party.”  So still kind of a pampering/personal gift (without being overtly sexy) and it has to do with weddings!

 I’d go with nice PJ’s/robe set. I remember being prenant and worrying about something pretty to wear in the hospital after the baby was born. Another idea is a nice jogging suit in a bigger size then the normally wears. They stretch for prenant women and they can wear them when they get home without having to wear maternity clothes (that’s so depressing)

Hey, i’ve had coworkers (not here, at other places like the restaurant i used to wait tables in) that would drool over the pregnant women. It was like this weird fetish! One thing when it’s your wife, another thing when it’s the 15 year old having dinner with her parents. Let’s not go there again.

And last I checked, when men want sex, they want sex, and belly be damned!

By The Way, did the invitation for the shower say “personal shower” or was there specifically a theme, like lingerie or something?

I think someone else said this (didn’t read everyone’s reasponses) but a nice silk robe might be good. Another thing might be some massage oils or bath salts… things she can enjoy on her own OR with her happy new hubby 🙂

Ha, I just noticed this thread was started 3 weeks ago. Guess my suggestions are a little overdue! What did you end up going with?

I know gift cards are so not personal, but a gift card to Vickies is always good in a pinch!
