So, if you've recently found out that your best mate is having her first child, then roll up your sleeves and get ready to enjoy the ride.

We’re particularly fond of the Hatch Belly Mask and wish it was around when we were pregnant!

It’s a plant-derived, paraben-free mask made with aloe vera and is perfect at hydrating and soothing itchy, stretching skin.

Morning (aka all day) sickness is the absolute worst and the natural peppermints (they only contain three ingredients) will help to keep feelings of nausea at bay.

  1. Baby Shower Gift Box

You don’t have to going to a baby shower to gift this box!

  1. Pink Wiro Bound Notebook

If you think her schedule was full enough, think about all the first-time mums' activities she'll now be attending.

From doctor's appointments and baby rhyme time to nutrition and parenting classes, your friend will be swamped.

Adjusting to life with a new baby is no easy task, so help her break it down by gifting her with one of our Pink Wiro Bound Notebooks.

This 75-page booklet bound by golden coils is a perfect thought-jotter for when her mind is racing with all the new information.

Also, the inner pages are divided into blank and dotted pages- perfect for bullet journaling and goal tracking.

Whether she chooses to keep it as a note-jotter for her appointments or for 'bits of advice' from other well-meaning mothers, she'll be glad to have this notebook in tow while moving place-to-place.

  1. Vegan Candle 

It is inevitable that at some point, she will reach her limit.

A candle can help her regain her balance.

Concealed in a delicate gold tin, this essential oil-infused blend is soy-based and has as much fragrance in one whiff that it does when lit.

A definite game-changer for days that everything seems to go wrong or when she’s feeling down.

Because, you know, pregnancy hormones are a thing.

  1. Ceramic Travel Mug

I cannot stress how in love she will be with you for having one of these on hand. This tiny 12 oz tumbler is perfect for holding liquids hot or cold or concealing ready-to-eat meals on the go.

If she's a working mum that spends a lot of her time in meetings or on the go, she'll jump at any opportunity to whip out her mug and dive in.

Consider adding in a box of our Organic Chamomile Tea for good measure.

This tea is a 20-count, organic blend perfect for relaxing and stress relief. With an infusion of chamomile, cinnamon, lemongrass leaves, and orange peels, she'll be able to take a moment to herself, even if just for a few moments in her car.

For something more indulgent, try The Chocolatier Marshmallow Hot Chocolate.

  1. Rose Quartz Gua Sha

Rose quartz is the stone of love.

Renowned for its attraction and emotional healing benefits, gift this Rose Quartz Gua Sha as a bonding tool to help strengthen the connection between mum and baby.

Mum can massage this stone onto her hands and chest.

And if given the OK, she can also run it onto her belly for the baby to feel.

A few rolls of this will give her feelings of instant relief and an even deeper sense of connection.

Plus, her pregnancy glow will get a boost from the additional skin rejuvenation benefits- yay.

Maybe consider adding in the White Jade Facial Roller, too, if you're looking for a spa-friendly gift that won't break the bank.

The Jade Roller can be used on the cheeks and neck to reduce puffiness and do away with any tension that she's held in her face (blame it on her nerves).

It's a gift that says, with love for love, that'll she'll cherish forever.

  1. Silk Eye Mask

If you don't buy any other items for your baby box gift, then for heaven's sakes, get the girl an eye mask.

Babies do a number on mum's body, and any place she can grab a few moments of shut-eye, she's going to take it.

Don't have her looking dull; gift her this simple yet elegant Black Silk Eye Mask to slip on during her cat naps.

Made of 100% mulberry silk, it's lightweight and easy on the eyes with the added benefit of being hypoallergenic.

The mask is designed to shield any unwanted sunlight, giving her nap the illusion of a late-night slumber to wake up refreshed and invigorated.

If black is not her thing, try the mask in vintage powder pink for a delicate affair.
