Gift Guide For The Mom-To-Be

Gift Guide For The Mom-To-Be -- The Jojoba Company Australia, Belli Skin Care, My Baby's Heartbeat Bear Collection, Nurture Smart Baby Mobile

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Hello there everyone! My name is Kansas and I’m the mother of three beautiful children and one on the way. I’m always looking for things that are great for use during pregnancy or with a new baby.

Are you a mom-to-be?

Have a baby shower coming up or throwing one for someone else?

We’ve got you covered with some must-have’s you’re sure to love.

Baby Oil

First, let’s talk about The Jojoba Company Australia 100% Natural Baby Oil. This stuff is amazing! I usually have issues with baby oils having a really strong smell but this one has an easy smell that’s not overpowering. It absorbs deep into the skin to keep it feeling soft and moisturized.

The 100% Natural Baby Oil is based from jojoba grown in Australia. It’s full of vitamins A, D, and E. Can be used for everything from massage to diaper rash.

My 18-month-old suffers from bad cradle cap and I just used a small amount of 100% Natural Baby Oil in the bath and rubbed on the places that were bad and found that it works better than most everything else I have tried so far.

You can find The Jojoba Company Australia products at Amazon, Walmart, or from The Jojoba Company’s website.

Heartbeat, Mom

This adorable little guy is from My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear Collection. I love this little critter so much! There are sixteen different animals that you can choose from, as you can see I chose the vintage sloth. There is everything from bears to monkeys, lambs, elephants, and much more.

How does it work? It comes with a red heart battery recorder that captures the sound of your baby’s heartbeat. You can record up to 20 seconds worth of sound. This will make a wonderful pregnancy keepsake and the perfect baby shower gift.

You can find them at Amazon, Sears, or from the company’s website.


Raise your hands if you’re tired — if the circles under your eyes have circles! Being a new mommy means lack of sleep and rest, but I think I’ve found an easy way to combat tired eyes. Belli® offers an array of really awesome skin products. The Belli® Eye Brightening Cream helps revitalize those tired eyes. Enriched with Vitamin K and Vitamin B3 it restores skin and helps reduce lines and boost the healthy glow around your eyes. This is a great product for mom’s to be or seasoned moms alike.

Skin care, Scrub

Growing a baby can be hard on the body, especially your skin. Belli® Fresh Start Pre-Teatment Scrub and Belli® Strechmark Minimizing Cream are here to help!

First, use the Pre-Treatment Cream 2-3 times per week to get rid of that pesky dead skin layer. The peppermint oil gives your skin a nice tingly feeling and leaves your skin feeling refreshed!

Next, use the Stretchmark Minimizing Cream. This cream is OB/GYN and Dermatologist recommended for skin restoration. Simply apply to problem areas once in the morning and once at night for about 4 weeks, then switch to once a day when desired results are achieved.

Looking to add these products to your daily skin care regimen? You can find Belli® Skin Care products at Amazon, SkinStore, or from the company’s website.


Finally, we have the Nurture Smart Mobile from More Than Play. This thing is AMAZING! I’ve never seen a mobile quite like it. It comes with a night light that is also a projector and features five sound selections from a heart beat to lullabies. Also included are a large mirror and six images for baby to look at.

Mobiles work best for babies 0-5 months. I love how easy this attaches to the crib and there are no loose parts for little one to choke on. It makes putting them to sleep even easier. In my opinion, this is a must-have item for baby’s nursery.

You can find it at More Than Play.


There you have it! These are some of my very favorite products to care for myself as well as my babies. What are your go-to products when trying to balance caring for yourself and baby?



  1. Looks awesome

  2. kayla sheehan says

    I’d like to try the jojoba oil

  3. Aw. Wonderful gifts for a mom to be! It’s a joyful and exciting time…but so tiring. Pampering gifts are the best!

  4. I like to paint my fingernails and toenails…usually just a clear or a really light pink nail polish. My kids are all grown up now and no grand babies yet, but when they were little I liked to give them a nice bubble bath.

  5. Margaret S Porter says

    I have a new niece coming. These are great ideas

  6. I have a family member who is pregnant, and the oil sounds like it would make a nice baby shower gift.

  7. Michelle Castagne says

    These are great gift ideas for mom and baby.

  8. VICKI RAINS says

    We needed this long ago.

  9. Great ideas, my sister is expecting.

  10. I love the My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear Collection, so cute.

  11. robin rue says

    I have two sisters in law that are pregnant right now, so these are great ideas for their upcoming showers. Thanks for the awesome ideas.

  12. I had my baby three weeks ago, can I still convince someone to get these for me? 🙂 My sister is pregnant now though, and I can’t only give her hand me downs, so this is a good list!

  13. Jessica Joachim says

    These are awesome baby shower gift ideas. I always like to give something that is for the mom because they get so many baby specific things.

  14. I love the sloth that shows off all the vitals of your baby and you can give it back years later. I wish I had some of those treatments for stretch marks for when I was pregnant.

  15. No expecting mommies on my end but I have a few who just became parents. I guess it’s not too late to share some gifts!

  16. Expecting mommas should be pampered and spoiled! They deserve it most especially sonce they’ll be dedicating most of their time to their babies once the babies are born. These are all lovely gift ideas!

  17. These are some great gifts to get when you’re a new mom! Everyone always brings things for the baby, but I think new Moms deserve something for all their hard work, too! Great post.

  18. This gift guide would be particularly useful for people who aren’t mums themselves yet – you sometimes have no idea what to get!!

  19. These are awesome ideas. I definitely am going to spoil my new nephew that is on his way!

  20. The cradle cap oil would have been awesome for my babies. They had cradle cap so bad. These are all good gifts.

  21. I love the heartbeat bear. What a precious recording of your baby’s moments before they leave the womb. Such a lovely gift idea x

  22. Great ideas. I usually swore by the Miracle Blanket Swaddles. They got me through my three babies and really made swaddling much easier.

  23. I LOVE the Jojoba Co, and jojoba oil is safe and perfect for babies.

  24. I always struggle what to give in baby showers! This list makes it so easy.

  25. The eye cream – what a great idea! I love the mobile too. When I was going to a lot of baby showers, I usually fell back on a wrap carrier of some sort. I used one with all three of my babies and it was a lifesaver!

  26. The sloth is adorable! I don’t if I’ve ever seen a soft cuddly sloth before, what a perfect unique gift!

  27. Love that Jojoba oil! Safe for moms (even breastfeeding moms who need to be extra careful of what products they are using), and for the little ones.

  28. What a great guide! I love buying things for new expectant mamas! This is a great list, I’ll have to check some of these out! – jeanine

  29. My friend is trying to get pregnant. I’ll definitely keep this in mind for the future!

  30. A good friend of mine is pregnant right now. I will have to remember these lovely items for her!

  31. That stuffed sloth is so adorable! I wish I had known about it when my cousins had their babies. I would have bought them each one.

  32. How sweet, congratulations! My third addition was born a little over a couple weeks ago. I’ll definitely have to check out that Nurture Smart Mobile

  33. The Everyday Mom Life says

    These are such good gift ideas! I like the eye brightening cream. It seems like it is more for her as a person/new mom.

  34. I am due in just a couple of months and this reminds me that i need to get a new mobile! I would love to be gifted that eye cream too….I’m gonna need it!

  35. Ooooo so many great must have items!!!! I just got my hubby’s cousin one of the garaffe heart beat bears!!! So cute!!!

  36. I would definitely opt for the Jojoba Oil. I love essential/natural oils and plus I already use it for my hair and skin.

  37. I would totally go with the stretchmark cream. I’m too self-conscious about my skin.
