This year alone, I've had no less than five friends announce that they're expecting. Since it's the second pregnancy for many of them, they're all stocked up on clothes, toys, and nursery decorations—so I've been stumped on gift ideas.
But then (hooray!) I discovered on the ideal present that any mom-to-be would lust for...
The Clarins Beautiful Beginnings Pregnancy Kit ($60; available at Clarins counters nationwide and Clarins.com) contains everything an expecting mom needs to get glowing, like an exfoliating body scrub and witch hazel-enhanced balm for stressed skin. To help skin bounce back post-pregnancy, there's a light body oil and their Stretch Mark Control product, made with crowberry extract to encourage collagen growth. And, for baby, it includes a super-soft blanket.
The bonus? It's comes in pretty reusable vanity case, so there's no need to fuss with wrapping. Now, that's better than giving a onesie!
