help! she is first baby 30 weeks...spend about 8-10 £
she likes cats...

pregnancy creams potions ok?

Yes, but could also branch out, as the pregnancy creams are fine but usually quite bland and not designed to be too luxurious or sexy, and are mainly to stop you itching or whatever. Closer to E45 than Chanel.

Beautiful nail varnish (might as well enjoy while you have time)? Hair treatment, good mini hairspray, and turban towel?

At this stage shes probably feeling all of the lack of glamour of being pregnant so anything that feels a little luxurious, like nice toiletries, lovely handcream is great as once baby is born she will be doing lots of hand washing.

Cat themed adult colouring book and pencils.

Mini toiletries for her hospital bag?

I would not have wanted nail varnish, as only wear it on my toes, and could not reach toes 3rd trimester...

I wouldnt get anything pregnancy related as the xmas present is for her personally.

Does she like cosmetics? Bodyshop are doing some great offers at the moment

Not in UK so unsure of cost, but how much is a pedicure voucher...difficult to reach those toes!

If you go the body shop route they have a £5 voucher, no minimum spend in the mail i think tomorrow (could be a different paper)
when i was pregnant I would have loved chocolate, a book, i liked the cat colouring book up thread too

I'd actually ignore the pregnancy aspect as she might be weighted down with family and friends buying pregnancy things. Maybe something like some lush bath bombs.

Whenever I have an SS person who likes a particular animal (or certain breed of that animal), I get them a calendar featuring the animal, from Pets at Home or similar. I fondly I imagine that they will feel it shows a certain amount of thought/personal consideration.

I wouldn't get a pedicure voucher unless you definitely know it's something she'd enjoy. Bath stuff is hit and miss too, I stopped having baths after about 6 months each time as it was so awkward getting in and out. Handcream is a good idea though.

I went through so much peppermint foot spray from Body Shop when pregnant.

I've bought my pregnant secret Santa an adult colouring book and pens/pencils. I thought it would be quite therapeutic and something to pass the time away while she is in the final stages.

I'm currently 32 weeks pregnant and wouldn't be interested in Nail varnish or pedicures I'm afraid. Long since lost interest in how my feet look!

Suffering from lots of aches and pains so warm baths are a great relief - the neals yard pregnancy bath oil sounds lovely!

NerrSnerr Sun 13-Dec-15 19:03:31

There are lots of people mentioning adult colouring books. Just check it's their kind of thing, I'm a person who likes crafts etc but wouldn't use a colouring book.

I recently treated myself to an 'Nspa mum to be set' and at 33 weeks pregnant I look forward to using it every evenjng!! Think you can order/pick up from Asda for about £10

I got mine from TK Max for £5.99 so might be worth checking there if you had a local one!
