I'm not sure if this is a weird present to get for my friends pregnant wife? I was looking at Groupon and there are some local spa treatments on there, just not sure if I'm getting her into a salon for the hard sell on other products if I do that?
I'd usually buy her something crafty but feel my options have been exhausted over the years
Any advice thankfully received

Good idea.

It will be a nice treat for her for after the birth - a little break and me time.. That would have been something I would have appreciated after having my kids. Nice.

When you say spa treatments what are they? I know pregnant women cant have certain products used and cant have certain treatments due to it being uncomfortable as they cant lie flat or on their stomach if not adapted for pregnant women. Worth thinking about. Maybe a nice baby photo frame like these

there are many more you might want to look at to choose

I couldn't have bared a massage etc whilst I was pregnant, and you have to lie down for a facial which will be tricky. I would have welcomed a pedicure because I could never reach my own toes! There are lovely options there which would be suitable.

I would have been (and still would be!) ecstatic if someone minded the kids for a couple of hours whilst I went off to be pampered.

(Sorry, but I would not be happy if I had received that photo frame! If it's a baby memento, and the budget stretches, I would have loved one of those silver pendants with the baby's thumbprint on. I think they have someone who does them in my local Mothercare).

In place of a baby shower my gf's friends took her to a spa. She said it was the worst thing they could have done.

Everything she wanted to do she couldn't / the spa wouldn't let her (inc. pretty much all massages, even the ones that only included sitting) The things she could do she didn't really want to do. She couldn't even sit in the Jacuzzi.

Not wanting to moan she sat on a sun lounger style chair for most of the day, bored, hot and uncomfortable while her friends had a whale of a time getting all the treatments they could.

It's one of those things where the idea's lovely, but the reality doesn't really match up.

On a recent hen do we went to a spa - there was a expecting mum present and she was able too choose from a selection of treatments specifically for pregnant ladies - maybe call them and see do they offer any appropriate packages.

thanks for your comments, I'll take your advice and skip on the spa treatments, I've seen a bump to baby photoshoot on there that is local to them but always worried about the extras they'll end up buying. I'll just have to get my thinking cap back on

I think this is a lovely present. If she cant use it just now or feels that she cant use it just now then she can use it maybe after the birth of even just before the birth to relax her. Even if she opts for a facial that will relax her and everyone knows that having a baby is stressful, before, during and after.
