Mother's day gift ideas for new mom to be??

Hai all my AF mommy's!!
So, my sister in law is pregnant with her first child which means.....I'm gonna be a first time aunt!! I am super excited!!
I would really like to get her something for Mothers day being that she is now going to be a mom and she doesn't have a mother of her own (she died when she was young) I think it will mean a lot to her because she never gets to celebrate Mother's Day since she her mom is gone and now she finally can since she will now be a mom herself!!!
I really want to her something for HER. I've already bought the baby a bunch of stuff so I really would like to get her a gift that she will enjoy for herself. She is almost 5 months now so my question to all of you wonderful mom's is, what can I get her?
Is there a favorite book that helped you through your pregnancy or a super comfortable piece of clothing you couldn't live without? Anything that you received during your pregnancy that meant the world to you? Any "must have" items that you couldn't get through your pregnancy without?? Any advice is greatly appreciated!!! TIA!!!!!

so sweet and thoughtful, jen! i loved a book i had in my first preg (didnt even look at it for my second and third but loved it the first time). i think it was called " my preg week by week". i also highly recommend the book "the happiest baby on the block" by harvey karp.. godsend!! these are more practical, i think..

other gift ideas for the mama-to-be... a body pillow for the end when she is not comfy a gc for a mani/pedi, bella band for any stage of preg or after, etc. i will try to think of some more ideas! i always loved shoes or jewelry when preg (still fit..lol!) but those may not be sentimental unless you know the baby's sex/name and you could get a necklace having to do with that. i have a few necklaces with my kids initials, etc and i just love them! hope this helps!

What about something like these: Kay Jewelers: The Store for Jewelry and Diamonds
If they know the sex, there are ones that have blue or pink crystals, or just plain ones.
Congrats on becoming an aunt!

I'm not a momma but I was thinking what about a gift cert for a pregnancy massage. A lot of spas in my area offer massages specifically for that.

Oh Jen, I don't have any ideas about a gift since I was preggo long time ago and don't remember but just wanted to say that it's so nice of you to give your SIL a mother day gift

On the other hand, they sell this little kits at the art and craft store to make a child little foot/palm impression. I always thought those are so cute and so wish I made something like that when my monster was little

Love that idea! You could make a day out of it, both of you going.

This is a GREAT idea too! It's nice to be pampered. Plus with Summer so close, who doesn't want pretty toes?

I'd wait until the baby is born to buy a "sentimental" type gift, but that's just me! Congrats on being an Auntie!!

Thank you all soooooo much!!! These are all awesome ideas!!!!
Amy thank you for the books you recommended, I am definitely going to get one of them because she doesn't have any pregnancy books yet.
Mani/Pedi day would be a great thing we could do together and thanks Kelly for the idea of the pregnancy massage!! Never would have thought of that!!
Thanks you everyone for the ideas and the warm wishes!! I can't wait to be an aunt!

PS- Tanya you are adorable, suggestions or no suggestions.....I you!

You are so SUPER Sweet

I just wanted to add that your pregnancy week by week was by far the best book I bought

Also LOVE the Mani, Pedi or Massage GC. Pampering feels even more awsome when you're preggers IMO...a little "me time" when you have someone renting out your body is a dream come true
