Enjoying some relaxing alone time is hard as a mom, but it is even harder as a pregnant mom! When you get a few minutes alone to unwind you have to take full advantage of that time. My new favorite thing to do is make a fancy "mocktail" and sit on our balcony (when it isn't 500% humidity) and just listen to my plants grow. Ocean Spray® makes a fantastic line of mocktails that I love to spruce up with fresh fruit and sip in silence and let stress fade away!
For the first time of my life, I had friends that were pregnant and they weren't finding out the gender of the baby - and then there were TWO couples stressing me out! I LOVE picking out practical baby gifts for friends (I've written about the best baby gifts under $30 in the past) but all of a sudden I realized how hard it was to pick gender neutral baby gifts. I literally spent hours searching through swaddle patterns, bottle colors, footie pajamas, etc. trying to find gifts that I felt were both useful and would be perfect no matter the baby's gender. SO, I decided to make the task easier for you. I scoured my favorite baby site, The Baby Cubby (you may remember them from my toddler learning post), for the perfect gender neutral gifts and put them all in one place for you.
Warning- nothing on this list is clothes. I generally avoid clothes for baby gifts unless I 100% know a couple's style. Especially when buying gender neutral gifts, clothes are risky. Everything on this list is stuff that I either own or can 100% recommend so any mom would find these gifts useful!
