As friends or families, it’s necessary to celebrate the big event with a thoughtful gesture of getting them appropriate gifts that will be useful for the soon-to-be parents.
There are lots of unique gifts for wedding events available online or in stores, but gifts for the soon-to-be-mommy bride can be a bit trickier than a traditional wedding gift. Here are a few of our favorite wedding gift ideas for couples who are also new parents.
1. Body Pillow or Cushions
A bride needs to look stunning on her wedding night, but she needs to feel comfortable too after that wedding night. A bride must already be tired from aches and pain, which is why a set of body pillows or cushions is a great gift idea. Body pillows and maternity cushions come in a variety of shapes and sizes, which will go a long way towards making her nights as comfortable as possible.
2. A Car Seat or A Stroller
Yes, it’s okay to “go there” and get a bit ahead, which means a gift certificate for a baby gear shop is a great gift idea. A gift certificate will allow her to choose the ranges of different baby gear, from baby clothes, a car seat to a stroller that she and her groom will need as parents, all in the privacy of her own choices too. The couple will thank you for this.
3. Cooking Classes or Fancy Cookware
A cooking class for couples taught by a professional chef at a high-end cooking school is a wonderful gift for the bride-to-be (and mom-to-be) to spend time with her lover on their weekend. A chef can show the couple some cooking tips and advice on what items will really help them upgrade their kitchen game. But, if you think they’re not ones to enjoy cooking classes. You can give them some fancy cookware, kitchenware or kitchen accessories.
4. Special Robe and a Spa Day
