Gifts for pregnant women should not, under any circumstances, mimic the practical yet generally mundane baby gear that’s on the registry. Because let’s face it: If your kid is arriving soon, your stress is likely rising, but your wife’s is off the charts. It’s the third trimester, so she’s likely uncomfortable and anxious and hungry and sore. That means it’s a good time to offer something extra, something above and beyond, in the form of a resonant pregnancy gift. These are best gifts for your pregnant wife, or just gifts for expecting moms, that tell her you took that extra moment to really think about what matters to her.
