If there is ever a time to treat yourself or to be treated it is definitely when you are 8 months pregnant. I imagine that if you are reading this then you know as well as I do that pregnancy is no easy ride. It takes it toll on every part of your body such as your stomach (obviously), skin, feet. You name it, it is suffering.
Although in the last few weeks of pregnancy and first weeks of motherhood your baby is going to be spoiled with all the clothes, that are far too cute, mums deserve to be treated too!
If you feel like you need a treat or you are looking for some gift ideas, I have done some internet day dreaming and put together some things I personally would love to receive.

Bump to Birthday is a beautifully designed , colour-illustrated pregnancy and first year journal that will inspire any parent-to-be to capture the unique story of the journey of pregnancy and baby’s precious first year.
Bump to Birthday provides week-by-week information on the developing bump with prompts to enable parents to tell their own remarkable story and record unique, unrepeatable experiences. With spaces for photos and scan images, the journal records pregnancy journey, hopes and dreams, the birthing experience, and all the special moments with the new baby – from first movements to first smile, first Christmas to first birthday. A wonderful way to record all those joyous moments that are so easily forgotten.
Although this gift isn’t as luxurious as the CLARINS set above, I love sentimental gifts and I loved looking through my baby book once I got older. I’m not sure if my baby boy will find it as emotional as I did but it is always nice to keep these memories and precious moments noted down for your own benefit.
Crafted from sterling silver, this wonderful, handmade necklace can be personalised with two names of your choice, creating a unique keepsake for your special someone.
This mum poem is a witty, affectionate verse about mothers and all they do for us. It can be personalised in two ways.

Our Story inspires parents to capture the unique story of childhood, from early baby memories through to his adulthood.
