Your bestie just announced she's expecting and you're ecstatic! You immediately start trying to think of a way to celebrate. It's never too early to start spoiling her--and let's face it, the first trimester can be less than glamorous. Today I'm sharing some of my favorite go-to gifts for the momma-to-be's in your life. A few funny, a few practical, and a few just plain awesome gifts to celebrate this exciting time!

These specialized speakers can be placed on her belly and play music directly to the womb. BellyBuds are a fun way for the mom to connect with her baby. By 30 weeks, studies have shown babies can begin to form memories, so that favorite song you're little one listens to in the womb, may be soothing to hear after birth.
