CLEANING SERVICE VISIT
If you don’t think house cleaning is romantic then you’ve never had to clean a toilet – or a bathtub while pregnant – this is love in its purest form. Homejoy and Molly Maid are a great place to start.
Ah, the glorious rub down when everything aches is somethin’ damn special. Look for places that have a “Mother’s Massage”, “Prenatal Package”, etc. because if the spa you’re dealing with isn’t familiar with pregnancy massage they might be a twitchy about rubbing down a pregnant lady. Check out ratings on Yelp or just do a Google search for spas in your area to see what gets great feedback – accidentally sending your pregnant partner to a rub-and-tug isn’t very romantic. Try one from you local posh hotel or a beautiful spa.
Same idea as the prenatal massage – it’s wonderful to feel pampered when you sometime feel like a land manatee. These nail polishes from Butter are gorgeous, free of crap and would go nicely with a gift card.
I really love the sleepwear from Majamas because they are suitable for both maternity and nursing yet look pretty and feminine. Nothing lifts your spirits like clean, nice pajamas – I don’t know, maybe that’s me.
Just because your lady is pregnant doesn’t mean she can’t be rocking some awesome lingerie. Personally, I would go the gift card route on this one. Boobs and bodies change a lot before, during and after pregnancy (you may have noticed) so a measurement is a good idea. I would recommend Nordstroms and Cake Maternity as your two best bets to find something to suit her needs.
EARTH MAMA ANGEL
These guys make lovely stuff for moms and babies. It’s made of worry-free, plant based ingredients. I like the Pregnancy Essentials Bundle but they have wonderful teas, lotions and lip balms too.
ADEN + ANAIS SWADDLERS
I know this isn’t exactly a sexy gift, but aden + anais swaddlers are the shit and moms LOVE them. Plus, they just came out with this “Heartbreaker” pattern so it’s a nice tie in.
I found this one on Etsy. Maybe paired with a great dinner or movie night.
