Picking the perfect present or gift for a pregnant woman is surprisingly easy if you know how a pregnant woman thinks. Right now one of the primary things on her mind is comfort, comfort, comfort. Anything to help her relax, look or feel better, or in any way pamper herself is going to be a great win. Her thoughts are also probably largely consumed by the life that's growing in her belly and gifts that pertain to both her and her baby can be very thoughtful gifts. Don't mistake this to mean diaper pails or changing tables. The gift still needs be about her too. Examples would include a journal for her to write her thoughts to her baby or a nice designer diaper bag that she will carry more than her purse once the baby comes.The wants and desires for a woman while pregnant are different than other years and here are some gift ideas that are sure to please a pregnant wife or woman in other pregnant woman in your life.
Aromatherapy Essential Oils & Diffuser
Aromatherapy oils and gifts are great for pregnant women because they have healing and soothing properties. They can help pregnant women with the following common conditions associated with pregnancy: Cystitis, hemorrhoids, thrush, depression, swollen ankles, varicose veins, fluid retention, relaxation and much more. They are commonly used in the delivery room as well. This is a great gift idea for a pregnant wife.
Aromatherapy oils need to be diluted with water and a good blend for a diffuser is 10 drops oil to 2 Tablespoons of water. For an aromatherapy pregnancy bath add 6-10 drops of oil to the tub and mix.

The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy
This book is a great accompaniment to an aromatherapy gift for a pregnancy woman. It gives the healing properties of different herbs and offers over 600 recipes to make your own essential oils. It's important for a pregnant woman to have a guide about the different herbs because while most herbs will offer healing properties, some should be avoided during pregnancy.

Massaging Foot Bath-Great Gift Idea for a Pregnant Woman
Pregnancy can do a number on feet. Not only will a pregnant women's feet ache but they can even grow a shoe size! Unfortunately the size will not go down after birth... The one positive however is a massaging foot bath will ease discomfort and will feel so good. It's something that will be enjoyed long after she's no longer pregnant.

Pregnancy Body Pillow
If she doesn't already have one a full body pillow is a must for any pregnant woman. It will help her be so much more comfortable and get more and better sleep. Let her get it while she can. I personally find that the pregnancy pillows that encircle the body are the most comfortable. They're also nice because you don't have to worry about rolling over onto the wrong side at night. However these tend to be the most expensive. If those are out of the budget then any pregnancy pillow will be a great help. Do try to determine if she prefers feather, memory foam or a regular synthetic fiber to try to buy the best pillow for her.

Prenatal Massage Gift Certificate or At Home Massage Tools
Pregnant women are typically in pain. Their back, feet and more can ache on a daily basis. Sciatica pain is a frequent complaint. Prenatal massage can help alleviate this pain and provide comfort and relaxation. A gift certificate for prenatal massage is a wonderful present idea for a pregnant woman as well as any at home massage tools and products.
Designer Diaper Bags
Any pregnant woman would love a diaper bag by her favorite designer. She'll end up carrying it around more than her purse but can help her to still feel like her own person with her own style.
E-Reader or Tablet-Great Gift for a Pregnant Woman
A tablet or e-reader is a perfect gift idea for a woman who's expecting. As she becomes further in her pregnancy it can become harder to do things she normally loves. She may be tired and needing more down time. It can be good entertainment at the hospital or while in waiting rooms at doctor's appointments. Once she has the baby if she breastfeeds she'll have hours a day where she's sitting or lying in bed with not a lot to do. A tablet or e-reader can give her various sources of entertainment at her figure tips during these times. The lighted screen makes it easier to use than just a regular book and she can have the added benefit of going on the internet, playing games, watching movies and more.
Pregnantal Yoga on DVD
If she already enjoys yoga then she'll definitely love being able to continue her yoga practice while pregnant. However even if she's never tried yoga she would benefit and enjoy prenatal yoga. It will help her de-stress and ease any discomfort such as back pain she may be experiencing. It's also a gentle and safe way to get in some exercise, tone and increase muscle and flexibility.
