Do you know any mums to be that are expecting in 2017? Before they know it, all the gifts they’ll be getting in the future will have the little ones in mind, so be sure to make this Christmas all about the mum-to-be.
To make your shopping a little easier this year, we here at VOYA put together a list of ideal Christmas Gifts for mums-to-be in 2016.
The Cuddler Snugmoc Suede Slippers
Help them put their feet up with these super comfy suede slippers. They have soft, pillow-padded and microfibre-lined material that hug the feet to retain heat. You can get these slippers made by fitflop online or in stores nationwide.
Nordic Dublin Check Throw
You can’t beat a good throw for the sofa, especially not one that’s been crafted in one of Ireland’s most famous woollen mills. This Nordic Dublin Check Throw is made of 100% Merino wool and come in shades of red, bone and white and is finished with a rolled fringe. It can be draped over one’s shoulders on a chilly winter night, or protect the sofa from the sunlight in the brighter months. Lookout for the Foxford Woolen Mills brand in stores across the country or checkout the website here.
J by Jasper Conran Brown Hooded Dressing Gown
If this is the mum-to-be’s last relaxing Christmas for a few years, then why not bring some comfort into her life this December? This hooded dressing gown by Jasper Conran provides the perfect cover for those post-Christmas lounging days that all blend into one. This is one of those gifts that you might want to keep for yourself.
Kipling Shoulder Bag
One Christmas gift that expecting mums can get great mileage from is a shoulder bag or leather tote bag. If it has a big enough central pocket, it can transition into a ‘hold everything’ baby bag when the time comes. This shoulder bag from Kipling would do the trick, but if you’re going ‘all out’ we doubt this Michael Kors Jet Set East West Tote would be turned away either.
Give the Gift of Tranquillity
Evoking the warm feeling of calm and serenity, VOYA’s Essentials for Relaxation is the gift of tranquillity for the skin. The perfect gift for lavender lovers. Inhale the sweet scent of lavender essential oil subtly infused into True Tranquil, 200ml relaxing body wash, as the senses are calmed and soothed and the body gently cleansed. Mindful Moments, 200ml relaxing body oil, coupled with its perfect partner True Tranquil, is enhanced with the finest evening primrose and Argan oils, promoting deep relaxation and a good night’s sleep. Both of these products are safe to use during pregnancy.
Did you know that one of the bestselling books this Christmas was written by chat show host Graham Norton? A man of many talents, Norton offers a tale of a rural town and the long-buried secrets of the remote community’s residents. It’s billed as a real page turner and a great story for escapism. It’s possible that this is the last book your mum-to-be might have a chance to read for a while, so make it a good one! Available here.
