Have you finished all your holiday shopping yet? I haven't either, so don't worry! While you're crossing some people off the list, don't forget about your close friend, who happens to be pregnant as well. Yes, the easy gifts to gravitate to would be centered around the baby — she's going to need a lot of stuff — but mama wants something special just for her, too, you know.

Coffee gift certificates

If your pregnant friend has sworn off coffee for the duration of her pregnancy, it's still a great gift. She can go and get a quiet cup of decaf or wait until she's back on coffee again after the baby is born. Either way, she can take great advantage of taking the time just for herself. You can make the denomination anything you can give, and it's one of those gifts that aren't just for the baby, but great for after also.

You can pick up the gift cards from your friend's favorite coffee shop.

Love at first sight sonogram photo frame

There is something magical in seeing your baby's first sonogram photo, and it's something special for so many expecting parents. They can be hard to keep track of, and sometimes, the paper they're printed on doesn't last forever, which is why this gift is so amazing. You're supporting a small-business owner and giving something extra lovely to your friend.

Get this gorgeous frame from PinkPetuniaBlossom on Etsy, $15.

Homemade scented bath salts

If you like to make your own holiday gifts, there's nothing better than giving a spa at home! Bath salts are great for any expectant mother because she's sure to have some body aches, plus this gift can be wonderful when the baby arrives. Even if you're not the DIY-type, this is easy for anyone to tackle, and the gift receiver would be very thankful.

Netflix subscription

Late nights will be in your friend's future, and at three in the morning, when she's up feeding the baby for the fourth time or trying to power through the third hour of cluster feeding, she'll be thankful to have something to keep her entertained. I leaned on Netflix during those late hours, and while your friend is gestating, keeping her feet up, or staying up with the baby when they're born, Netflix will come in handy.

Get this perfect gift from Netflix.com, $ depends on options.
