It's that time of year when you're looking for the perfect smaller gift for the stocking of that special mom-to-be. Look no further! I've got a list of the items for that nice mama in your life, or even a few of the naughty ones too. If you are interested, there is also a election of stocking stuffers for dad-to-be as well.
This wonderful salve is great for practically everything that ails you. I love it for chapped lips. It's got a deliciously light vanilla flavor and yet is free of phytoestrogen, parabens, petroleum oils, phthalates, gluten and soy. It's also good for itching skin (Think stretchy pregnant bellies!), wind burn, minor external cuts, etc. It's great for mom-to-be to carry in her purse for a little luxury treatment of her own.

3. Belly Band
This amazing piece of versatile fabric is way more than you'd imagine. It's designed to help extend the life of your regular clothes and make your maternity clothes more comfortable in pregnancy. After you've had the baby, it's great for helping to get back into your pre-pregnancy clothes, hiding your belly while you nurse and providing you with a bit of added support. This is a gift that really says you're paying attention. It comes in multiple colors to choose from as well as sizes.
These cozy socks are just what a mom needs to soothe her feet. They are so soft and comfortable and yet also keep those cold piggies feeling warm. This works great to keep those cracked heels at bay. Put your lotion on and slip into these socks to lounge or even sleep in them. Yes, they are that comfortable. (Though do watch walking on slick floors!)
Every stocking needs something candy-like! That's where Preggy Pop Drops come in handy. These treats are designed to help with morning sickness, but are very candy-like as they are hard drops to suck on. They come in three sour flavors: raspberry, lemon and tangerine. While they were designed with pregnant women in mind, they work for all sorts of nausea. So mom-to-be might be asked to share after that big Christmas meal!
This amazing breastfeeding video would make a great stocking stuff. It has gorgeous footage but simple, sound breastfeeding advice that even earned the La Leche League International Seal of Approval. This DVD covers the basics from the breast crawl and skin to skin contact with your baby to learning their cues for feeding and beyond. If you already have this video or you'd like a combo pack, they also offer a how to infant massage DVD, which is also award winning. These gorgeous images make your ovaries hurt!
