Gift Guide, Pregnancy: Zen-Seeking Mama

Aroma Wrap

Aroma Wrap in Brown/Blue from Gardener's Supply Company

Yesterday, I shared gift ideas for the Second-Time Mama; today it's the Zen-Seeking Mama-to-Be. You know the type -- stressed out pregnant girl. (I was one myself.) Here are some ideas for things to help her stay calm, comfy, and collected.

Product: Aroma Wrap

Cost: $22

Where to Buy: Gardener's Supply Company

Extras: Warm this aromatherapy wrap in the microwave or chill it and use it cold.

Why I Love It: It's a great way to de-stress -- using it will encourage the mama-to-be to take a little me-time and reeeelax. She can wrap it around her neck to relieve sore muscles or place it against her temples for a tension headache -- the scents of lavendar, rosemary, and clove are proven aromatherapy stars.
