Pregnancy-safe pamper body set

Let’s kick start this gift list for pregnant women with an editor-approved option. “After doing my research and reading many five star reviews, I presented the Bloomin Lovely gift set to my best friend when she was eight months pregnant with her second child,” says Martina Garvey, e-commerce editor at The Bump. Designed to pamper expectant moms from head to toe, this skincare set includes a nourishing breast cream, a rich tummy butter, a soothing shower milk and a cooling leg lotion. While everything went down a storm, the final product mentioned above was a particular favorite. “My bestie dealt with swollen ankles throughout her pregnancy, but Mama Mio’s Lucky Legs Cooling Gel offered her some true relief,” Garvey said. Powered by natural, plant-based actives and housed in sustainable packaging, this is a go-to gift for any pregnant friend.

How We Chose the Best Gifts for Pregnant Women

We get it—choosing the perfect gift for a pregnant friend or loved one isn’t easy. To streamline your decision-making process, our goal is to do the bulk of the research for you, so you don’t have to spend hours scrolling through online retailers.

To decide which products are the best options on the market, we leverage our familiarity with leading brands to make sure items are from reliable manufacturers. We read user reviews to get the low-down on how these products work for real people, and typically don’t consider anything with less than an average four-star rating. And since many of us are also parents, we rely on our writers’ and editors’ experience using these products in their own lives.
