It is the season to be getting lots of presents, and if you are reading this, the likelihood is you are either pregnant yourself or looking for inspiration to get someone special a gift this Christmas.
I have crawled the internet and drawn on a few of my own personal favourites to compile a list of the top 10 best maternity Christmas presents for 2021.
Tiba + Marl, in Black - £150
You can never have enough space when it comes to packing for babies. The Tiba + Marl collection of backpacks allows you to fit all your essentials into one place and comes with an insulated bottle holder as well. It is exceptionally versatile and is equally as effective as a gym bag or everyday bag. Best of all, Dad’s love wearing it too.
Kettleboobs, Classic Boobs cast-iron kettlebell - £20
Everyone should be encouraged to exercise whilst pregnant. For those without a gym membership or who prefer to workout at home, the Kettleboobs kettlebell range is a great addition. Their light-hearted designs are so original and put a smile on anyone’s face and can easily double up as a decorative piece in the home.
Smythson, Mummy To Be Panama Notebook - £55
You haven’t slept, your boobs are sore from breastfeeding and the house is a mess. You still need to organise nursey, baby appointments for the week and write thank you notes for all the gifts you received following the birth of your child. Fear not, a life saver is in hand. Smython’s mummy themed organiser is of the highest quality in design and lets you take back control of your personal schedule.
My Little Coco, Hydrating Bump Sheet Mask - £5.99
Take care of your bump this Christmas with this hydrating treatment mask from My Little Coco. It is packed with tonnes of goodness, including cooling aloe vera and rosehip to help reduce stretch marks. The mask can easily be applied and takes just 20 minutes to rub in and absorb. An absolute bargain and a great idea for a stocking filler.

If you are looking for a package of body care products that covers all bases, check out the Bloom and Blossom ‘YOU’VE GOT THIS MAMA’ pregnancy gift set. Included within are three items that are designed to keep skin toned, hydrated and conditioned throughout pregnancy.

Yes, it is expensive, and it might be your only present this Christmas, but it is bloody lovely.
