You might think it should be a present in itself that the gift of a baby is enough for expectant mums-to-be, however having to endure the stresses and strains of carrying a baby for nine months can take its toll on any woman, so it might be nice for the mother in waiting to receive gifts to allow her mind to think of other things when her feet have swelled up and she can’t sleep on her stomach.
What Kinds of Gifts Could You Give Mothers in Waiting?
You could give flowers to bring a smile to her face, or some chocolates (to make her even bigger…?!) or you could give wine gifts. Now, we don’t actually mean physical wine gifts, such as bottles of personalised wine, engraved wine or wine gift sets, because drinking the contents of these will obviously affect the baby. In fact, according to research undertaken by the University of Bristol and the University of Oxford, even drinking one glass of wine per week can risk lowering your child’s intelligence, so it’s better to abstain from alcohol during the nine months that a mother carries her child.
Wine Gifts That Require The Baby’s Arrival
If you would like to give a bottle of wine, why not give one that she is not tempted to drink before the baby is born? For example, a bottle of engraved fine wine, such as engraved Barolo that says something like: to be opened to celebrate the bump’s arrival on planet earth or something similar. If the mum-to-be isn’t much of a fine wine drinker, but prefers everyday drinking wines, such as Pinot Grigio, Merlot or Chardonnay, then you could do the same thing in terms of the style of message, if you design your own wine label and choose the wine to attach your personalised wine label design onto.
There are also a number of personalised congratulations wine labels that you can choose from, to add your: The Baby’s Here, Now You Can Drink! message onto. All of these types of wine gift ideas will help her to look forward (even more) to the time when her baby is due.
On the other hand, some of you might be looking for gifts for mums-to-be, but feel that it is better to stay away from physical liquid wine gifts all together. If that is the case, then consider wine related gifts, such as wine holders, or wine accessories instead. There are some fantastic wine shoe holders in a number of styles to select from too including a leopard print shoe wine holder, a silver and black shoe wine holder and a red and black shoe wine holder, perfect for most high heeled shoe tastes.
