Throughout the month of December, we'll be sharing our picks for great gifts this holiday season. Today, our Knocked Up blogger Sheri shares her favorite finds for moms-to-be and their babies on the way.

If there’s a mother-to-be on your gift list this year, you might be a little stumped about what to give her. Not to worry, there are plenty of beautiful, useful presents to buy for expecting mamas. Here are a collection of fun and pretty presents I think she'll love.

Mom-to-be is about to spend a lot of time at home.How about a new pair of slippers to brighten her days?This Italian-made pair look super cozy. (For a summer due date, try something a little cooler.)

It can be difficult to feel pretty when you’re waddling around with an extra 20 or 30 pounds.A new piece of jewelry can help with that.I also love this set of sterling rings.
Along the same lines, flowers are popular this year! These linen pins by EmersonMade are the perfect way to dress up that boring maternity tee.
New moms spend a lot of time feeding their little ones. It’s great to have a light novel around the house to delve into during all that cuddle time—even in the wee hours of the morning.Lately, I’ve been particularly enjoying author Anita Shreve.

All of those aches and pains in the final months of pregnancy are no joke.Find out if your local spa offers specialty massages for pregnant women and buy her a gift certificate.She’ll love it! (Here's a site to help you find a massage therapist in your area.)
Being pregnant is the perfect reason to lather yourself with luxurious lotions. This coconut butter from the Body Shop is great for expanding tummies.
This comfy loungewear and matching baby gown look like the perfect thing to wear in the hospital and those first days home.

Most new moms take a lot of photos of their new bundle of joy, so pregnancy is a great time to brush up on those photography skills. Here's a book to help her do just that.
These adorable, hand-knit buntings make for sweet newborn photos and can keep baby warm for brief walks or snuggling on the couch.This one happens to come with an adorable teddy bear hat as well!
I didn’t get a Sophie the Giraffe for Aaron, but since then I’ve heard nothing but wonderful things about this all-natural, toxin-free teether.If there’s one thing I learned the first time around, it’s that a few high-quality toys are all you really need for baby.
