Francis & Henry
This Poland-based luxury brand focuses the spotlight on mamas first, and babies second. Each thoughtful gift bundle (the Mini is pictured) includes a phenomenally soft V-neck lounging / nursing dress for mama, and the brand also offers a lovely selection of patterned bralettes and unders, too.

Before baby makes her grand appearance (and after, too!) pamper mama with Basq NYC’s selection of pregnancy skincare. The Big News! Expecting Mama’s Mini Kit (pictured) includes an aromatic citrus sugar scrub, stretch mark butter, and a trio of skin oils in eucalyptus, lavender, and citrus.

A modern mama needs a modern bag, and Sleepy Panda’s coated-canvas Kaitlyn Backpack (pictured) is just the thing. The back has an easy-open zippered flap, letting you quickly retrieve items stashed at the bottom of the bag. There’s also a phone compartment and built-in USB hub ,which connects to an optional charging station battery pack (sold separately.)
