Looking for a thoughtful, practical pressie for an expecting mama?

Whether you have a baby shower to attend or you just want to choose something special for that mum-to-be in your life, here's the best – and most useful – presents around.

Maternity clothing

Dressing an ever-expanding bump is fun until you run out of clothing options that fit. Stocking a new wardrobe is expensive and time consuming so a maternity wear item that doubles as a nursing piece will be warmly received.

A cami that's ideal for wearing with a bump and then with a bub.

The innovative Lily Terry-Lined Nursing Compression Cami from Mama Muse, features a fully supportive inner shelf bra, seamless terry fleece which absorbs moisture and conceals minor leakages, and stretch-mesh lining throughout the bodice offers light to medium compression to smooth the silhouette.

A wardrobe staple for a new mum? The trusty gown.

A luxe robe

A gorgeous gown is one item that will be on high-rotation for a new mum. Mamas will pop it in on at the hospital and will quickly get used to wearing it round-the-clock as they feed bub.

This Best & Less Satin Short Kimono is lightweight, the floral print is stunning and it's only $20.

A nursing sports bra is a genius idea.

Active wear

There are so many benefits to maintaining an exercise regime during pregnancy. Building up core strength gets your body ready for the exertions of childbirth, and improving suppleness helps alleviate the accompanying discomfort of backache, joint strain and pelvic loosening.

While there are so many reasons to move, sometimes the only thing we lack, besides motivation, is the right active wear.

Cadenshae's Breastfeeding Bra provides the ultimate comfort to breastfeed with confidence, anywhere, anytime.

A handy wallet that's so convenient for change times when you're out.

Something to make life easier

A product that saves time and makes life simpler for new mums? Bring it on!

The Bambino Mio grab & go change wallet is ideal for quick nappy changing on-the-go. Keep your change-time essentials at your fingertips with this wallet that unfolds to an extra-wide and cushioned changing pad. The top central zipped pocket for easy access to baby wipes and other change-time essentials too. Brilliant!

The frills help catch the spills. A bib designed to make mealtimes less messy.

When it's time to introduce solids, mums will dream of a bib that catches spills and crumbs and makes clean-up easier. Introducing the Snuggle Bib from Snuggle Hunny Kids. These bibs are waterproof, so are simple to wipe down.

Gah. This is so cute… and so tiny.
