V excited as I have a 5 month old. Sending congrats on being preggo gift. Am buying him the "Commando Dad" book as I know he'll love it and want to buy her something too but not something for the baby as I know that would have weirded me out so early....but all the useful things I can think if of - bio oil, bump band / possibly a little scary/unglam. Any good ideas?

I got bought a massive pregnancy pillow quite early on. Didn't really need it at that stage but it's sooooo nice to sleep in even early on :-) www.amazon.co.uk/PILLOW-PLEASURE-MATERNITY-SUPPORT-COTTON/dp/B004T31A8U

Or perhaps vouchers for maternity clothes? Pregnancy spa day?

Not support bump bands, but the ones you wear to eke out a few more weeks from your usual trousers?
Asda do some lovely alcohol-free bubbly (in a champagne style bottle) which you could send with some spa type pregnancy lotions and potions (Boots have nice stuff by Burts Bees etc') as a treat?

As above I would appreciate some nice smelliest etc smile I know it's not technically for her but you could always get her a restaurant voucher or voucher for afternoon tea etc if she's still eating fine. Or if you know her quiet week maybe do a hamper style with her favourite mag, chocolate, nice candle etc smile

The Commando Dad book is fantastic! My DH bought it for himself while we were in the first trimester.

Here are some ideas that I would have appreciated in early pregnancy:
- Take her to a spa for a massage or other treatment
- A home pampering kits, e.g. nice-smelling bath salts or face masks
- A small hamper-style gift with hot chocolate and other nice things
- A bunch of flowers and a card! Sounds simple but fresh flowers are always welcome with me smile

I feel bad that I didn't send my sister-out-law anything until my nephew was born. When she heard she sent me a mum-to-be box (Sanctuary, Spa Covent Garden) I'm not a very girly girl but the stuff seems quite good -although both a firming lotion and a collagen boosting one and I don't know the difference!

Now my brother has sent us a book called "Experimenting with Babies" which has nice/fun experiments you can do with your baby around their development. I'm very interested in science (as is all my family) so it made sense.

Why not give her a voucher for a pregnancy massage or similar? I'd have loved something like that. xx

I like the new baby pack thing that's nice also the mum and me brand do a little gift set some stretch mark cream and bath stuff etc that's nice!!
