Organic Gift Ideas For A Pregnant FriendCaroline Fenton
So your friend is about to pop, or maybe she’s just found out and let you in on her little secret!! You can’t wait to play “Auntie” and spoil this little one stupid! After all, that’s what Aunties are for, right?! Here’s some organic gift ideas for a pregnant friend.
You have a google, stalk some Australian Insta stores and get a little overwhelmed… this new baby land really is quite crazy! What is safe? And what is ok for these precious newbies?? You down the phone and realise you really haven’t the faintest idea what to actually buy this little jellybean!
But you do know that you want to congratulate your bestie and spoil her too. After all, she’s going to be a mama (and an amazing one at that!)!! You’ll miss the days of cocktails after work on a Thursday, but are so looking forward to trading them for pram walks and babycino dates!
You start the search for something for her… something organic, and natural as possible. You don’t want any nasties or chemicals making their way to this growing little babe. It’s gotta be non-toxic all the way…
ORGANIC GIFT IDEAS FOR A PREGNANT FRIEND
A belly butter is a wonderfully nourishing and thoughtful gift. This one from Badger Balm is 100% certified organic, using cocoa butter and coconut oil to nourish those tummies. It helps to relieve tight and itchy skin as it makes space to grow that tiny human. The super moisturising properties of calendula is perfect for dry skin, and is anti-inflammatory too, eliminates bacteria, and helps the skin heal.
With aches and pains, as well as a growing belly, your friend may well be having trouble falling asleep (and staying comfy!). This Sleep Balm can help with that… it uses organic essential oils including lavender and bergamot. These oils help calm the mind and soothe you into a relaxed state to help sleep come naturally.
ORGANIC GIFT IDEAS FOR A PREGNANT FRIEND: ALL ABOUT THE BOOBS
For when new mama starts breastfeeding (and potentially pumping too!) they will thank you for a super nourishing balm to soothe and save their sore nipples! We rate this one from the gorgeous Tiny Tonics, handmade here in Australia from all natural ingredients.
Moisturising oils (including apricot and avocado) are infused with anti-inflammatory and antiseptic herbs (chamomile and calendula). These are combined with antioxidant rich plant butters and protective beeswax. Best of all, it is perfectly safe for newborn babes so there is no need to wash off before feeding. Happy days!!
Pair the nipple balm with some super absorbent and comforting bamboo nursing pads… these are great for the environment (bye bye nasty disposables!) and perfect for sensitive nipples too. Handmade in Australia, they are made with love and top quality fabrics (with a range of adorable designs!). Plus, they ensure you avoid those embarrassing public leaky boob moments. No new mum wants that added worry!!
ORGANIC GIFT IDEAS FOR A PREGNANT FRIEND: SCRUB A DUB DUB
Whether mama to be loves a shower or a long relaxing soak, there are some lovely all natural options to pamper her changing bod. We can’t decide which we love more… the lemon & rose, or the bump & grind coffee scrub?! Both are DIVINE!!
Super invigorating caffeine hit to promote blood flow and invigorate, or deliciously aromatic and cleansing lemon and rose. Either way, your mama friend will be in shower heaven!!
Pick a couple of these, take mum to be out for a (decaf) capp, and a generous slice of cake… swoon over some nursery pics, take a stroll round some cute boutiques… and she will love you forever!!
