At Ella Bella, we talk with and shop with expecting and new moms EVERYDAY! We have the inside scoop on what moms love to try on, buy over and over, or swoon over when they come into the store. I guess you could say we have a little insight on important products that make a difference in a lot of new mother's lives. So before you begin your shopping for that new mom in your life this Mother's Day, here are the things you need to know about that are on their want, need and wish lists!
1) The item that is seriously on EVERY mothers must-have list…
A practical gift that she will love and actually use is the perfect pair of support stretch leggings (that do not go see through!) An expecting mom can be are super comfortable in a pair of maternity leggings because they truly go with anything and everything and can be taken to pre natal yoga or walks in the park! Maternity leggings are built to last with more coverage, support and options with panels that can be worn folded or up over the bump. Shop all our maternity leggings here.
2) The item they all come back to re purchase once they try it…
If the new mom on your list is working during her pregnancy, or has had problems with water retention or puffy feet, this cooling gel is a pampering treat! Packed with energising oils and refreshing spearmint to revive tired legs and de-puff ‘tight’, swollen feet. (Even better when it comes WITH a foot massage ;) Shop all skin care here.
3) The maternity fashion item that is trending hard right now…
The striped stretch maternity dress is this spring/summer's hottest trend! AND the best part is that it is also comfortable and practical. Celebrity moms (like Kourtney Kardashian) have been rocking this trend with jean jackets & boots and moms love the way it shows off their baby bump and its practically pinned onto every 'maternity style' interest board there is. Shop all maternity stretch dresses here. (These are going fast!)
1) On every moms wish list… (they hold these and they can't put them down)
A posh diaper bag that looks sleek and modern is an amazing gift for the fashion conscious mom, or one who would love to be able to continue to use the bag after the baby has grown out of diapers! Give the gift of organization and sophistication with a well designed diaper bag that looks as good (if not better) than your average handbag. Just because she's a mom, does't mean she has to give up her style! Shop all diaper bags here.
2) The comfort piece every mom LOVES for baby
Nursing pillows are a god send to (especially first time) nursing moms. It helps by lifting the baby to reduce strain on mom's back, neck, shoulders and arms and allow for proper latch-on. This pillow is also great for bottle feeding babes, to position around a sleeping baby, co sleeping, helping them sit up and the list goes on! Over all, this pillow is extremely versatile and handy pillow that moms use a lot! Shop the baby buddy here.
3) A fun piece any mom can appreciate!
Who doesn't love accessories?! Add a pop of colour to a new moms wardrobe with this cute periwinkle polka dot scarf! Goes great with jeans and a tee or over a summer dress. Save room in the diaper bag - this scarf can also transform into a stylish nursing shawl to keep the baby covered in style! Shop the scarf by Seraphine here.
