Pregnancy is a special time, full of joy and expectation. But, it can also be difficult on your wife, with a host of unpleasant symptoms like morning sickness, lack of sleep and aches and pains. There are lots of ways to support your wife during her pregnancy, and one of those ways is by surprising her with a gift. Maybe it's a holiday or special occasion that falls during those nine months. Or perhaps you just want to do something special for her just because. In any case, a gift for your pregnant wife might be just what she needs to brighten her day.

Need some ideas? We get it. It can be difficult to come up with gift ideas for your wife, and that's especially the case when she's pregnant! Should you give her something pregnancy specific, or something just for her? As long as your gift is from the heart, she's sure to appreciate your kind gesture. Here, we've curated this roundup of 20 of the best gifts for your pregnant wife.
