Hi all - I need help! My brother's partner is 20 weeks pregnant and hasn't been very well. It's her birthday at the end of the month and I want to get her some sort of pampering gift set - any ideas? Has anyone had one they'd recommend?

Thanks in advance for any thoughts x

I don't know about a pampering gift set, but what about a voucher for treatment at the spa?
I'm 20 weeks pgt and I think a pampering session where the only thing one has to do is relax will be great.

Thanks for that

John Lewis have a nice selection online. We bought the Burt's Baby Bees Mum & Baby gift set for a colleague at work and she loved it. The Neal's Yard one also looks nice. I think a spa treatment would be a lovely gift too.

Cowshed do really nice mum-to-be smellies (called Udderly Gorgeous I think)- they sell them in some branches of Boots

I’m 20ish weeks pregnant now….soon I won’t be able to reach my toes (comfortably anyway) so if it was my birthday I’d love a pedicure and any form of pregnancy massage…

Neal’s yard do lovely stuff too, 1st pregnancy fell over my birthday so was spoiled with treats from there…they are especially nice if you’ve been feeling under the weather as al lot of their stuff contains relaxing and rejuvenating ingredients.

I'm addicted to the Burts Bees range, the Mama Bee belly butter and the body oil are particularly nice - I've been using them religiously and not only is my skin the nicest its been for years I haven't got any stretch marks (yet!). The peppermint foot and leg cream is also nice, although once she gets bigger and needs it more, if she's anything like me she won't be able to reach her feet which makes it a bit useless!

Off topic but I'm 31 weeks preganant and I was thinking how lovely it would be for someone to do my cleaning...

(even put a washing load on and then deal with it once completed???)

You sound like a nice SIL though - well done you!

I'd have loved a spa treatment while pregnant! My PIL got me the Neal's Yard kit last time and that was nice (the face spritz was fab in labour as well).

Many thanks everyone x I bought a set of cowshed bits that came today and look great! I've already offered to cook or clean or shop or iron but they seem determined at the mo to do that stuff themselves so I went done the home pamper route. Anyway at 20 wk scan all is good - baby fine and a girl so now I can go out and buy pink things for them too grin
