Between morning sickness and the ever-growing belly, pregnancy might not seem like the sexiest thing in the world. But with Valentine’s Day approaching, it’s time to up the romance and remind your partner exactly how alluring and beautiful she really is.
Here are 11 ideas that will floor your wife, and maybe even bring a happy tear to her eye.
1. PAMPER PACKAGE
Homemade gifts are the best. Create a pamper package that will help her relax after a long day. Include essential oils for pregnant women, foot soak salts, and handmade soap.
2. SPA DAY
Toward the last few weeks of pregnancy, nothing would feel better than a relaxing, tranquil massage. A spa day can be something as simple as scheduling a prenatal massage, or as complex as scheduling hair, makeup, and a mani-pedi.
Get a gift card to your wife’s favorite spa, and she can decide which services she wants for herself!
3. PREGNANCY PILLOW
Getting a restful night’s sleep is a challenge during pregnancy because finding a comfortable position is impossible. By gifting pregnancy pillow, you’re essentially giving the gift of a good night’s sleep, and there’s no better gift than that.
She may love it so much that she continues using it long after the baby is born!
4. CLEANING SERVICE
One thing should be made clear: this is not a judgment on her housekeeping skills, but just another way for you to pamper your partner. That growing baby bump is getting in the way of many things, and cleaning the bathroom floor is one of them. Schedule a weekly (or however many you can afford) visit by a maid service, and the place will be tidy for baby’s arrival.
Chocolate is not only good, but it’s good for woman. Especially during pregnancy. Chocolate has been proven to lower a woman’s risk of preeclampsia, so load up on the cocoa bars!
6. PRENATAL YOGA
This one comes with a big caveat- Don’t just buy your wife a gift certificate for prenatal yoga classes unless she has expressed interest. If she has, this is a great, thoughtful idea, especially if you go with her. This would be a great gift for any woman looking for a calming but healthy activity to do during pregnancy.
7. HIRE A BABYSITTER
If you have kids already, consider hiring a nanny or babysitter who can take over while your wife takes the afternoon off. You could also hire a babysitter so that you two can enjoy a nice time together!
8. BIRTHSTONE NECKLACE OR HARMONY BALL
9. COMFY SLIPPER
It’s all about pampering the woman in your life. If you know her shoe size, you can find a great pair of slippers. These are my personal favorites, but there are plenty of other varieties if your girl prefers memory foam or feathery insides.
10. PREGNANCY LINGRIE
As the pregnancy progresses, it’s easy to feel frumpy, overweight, and ugly, but that’s not how you see your beautiful pregnant wife! Remind your wife just how beautiful she is with a delicate nightgown for Valentine’s Day.
11. MATERNITY PHOTOS
Think outside the box and offer to take a few shots with your wife. Many photographers will also allow you to take shots with other children, turning the shoot into the perfect family portrait session.
