These gift ideas can be used for Holiday gifts or baby shower gifts. They are practical and will be much appreciated because they are thoughtful in a way most don’t think about. There are links to some items to support small businesses in the local Bay Area, but if you are not local to this area please consider finding a small business to support when buying these products. None of these links are sponsored or affiliate links.
I hope you find the perfect gift for that special pregnant, birthing, or postpartum person. Consider also adding some of these gift ideas on your registry so you get unique, thoughtful and useful gifts, too.
