Full Body PillowCHECK PRICE ON AMAZONLet me introduce you to my best friend during my pregnancy--the ultimate body pillow! Apparently, over 850 people agree that this pillow is the best. It's HARD to sleep when pregnant. Your belly weighs your entire body down and it's hard to heave it over to turn over at night. It feels SO much better to have support under it.
Because pregnancy is hard on your hips, too, this is a pillow because you can use it between your legs for extra support. The cover is washable, too! This supportive pillow can help support nursing babies, later, too.

Conair Massaging Foot SpaCHECK PRICE ON AMAZONWhen you're pregnant, almost everything is achy and swollen. Pamper her feet (she's walking for two, after all) with this great foot bath. Shiatsu massaging balls, a waterfall for the top of your feet, and the machine even retains the heat.
This would be so relaxing after a long day--sometimes it's just not possible to get to the spa; bring one home to expectant moms, instead.

Clarisonic Mia Face BrushCHECK PRICE ON AMAZONThis may seem an odd gift to give, but anyone who has been pregnant before will understand! With hormones surging, your face can go bonkers with oiliness, breakouts and more. But, since you're pregnant, you don't want to use harsh chemicals on your skin (plus docs don't recommend them).
This brush is FAN.TAS.TIC! It removes dead skin cells and clean super deep to help get rid of dirt and grime. It's got over 400 raving reviews and is highly recommended for pregnant women (bonus: it's a great device post-pregnancy, too!).

While the Clarisonic is the Rolls-Royce of face brushes, here are a few more excellent options (and they are a bit easier on the pocketbook, too). Whereas the Clarisonic cleans by pulsing (similar to a Sonicare-type toothbrush), this options clean by spinning. The cleaning won't be quite as deep, but she will still see a major difference from regular soap and water.

Soft, Fluffy RobeCHECK PRICE ON AMAZONA comfortable bath robe (roomy, too!) is wonderful for pregnant women because it can be worn before, during and after pregnancy. This machine-washable robe will wick moisture from her body quickly, leaving her comfortable and dry.
This is great for wearing after a shower or around the house. Because it opens easily, it's also great if she decides to nurse after the baby arrives.

Stretchy 3/4 Sleeve TopCHECK PRICE ON AMAZONI lived in these shirts when I was pregnant. They are perfect by themselves and layer beautifully under cardigans. They retain their shape so even post-birth, they still look great (I wouldn't wear it MONTHS after, but you do still have a bit of a belly after baby is born).
