If your pregnant friend is the sentimental type, consider purchasing a gift that will let her preserve memories of this special time. Sentimental gifts for pregnant women create keepsakes that can be enjoyed for years to come. Two great options from Proud Body are the Clay Hanging Keepsake and the Clay Keepsake Memory Tin. They both enable your friend to create one of a kind hand or foot prints of they newborn.
If the mom-to-be is crafty, purchase her a kit that contains everything she'll need to create her ownpregnancy scrapbook. She'll have a blast documenting her prenatal visits, unusual food cravings, bizarre baby name ideas, and nursery preparations. If she's not-so-crafty, the Tummy Talk Journal is a great option. It is a good way to help her remember the cherished events of pregnancy and birth is the .
A belly casting kit lets your pregnant friend create a 3D memento of her beautiful baby bump. However, this is a project that can be a bit messy! Check out these examples of belly casts and you'll see the possibilities are endless.

Pregnancy nutrition is becoming of much greater importance in the past few years as more information is being released about the benefits that proper nutrition provides for the baby.
Give the gift of knowledge in the form of a pregnancy nutrition book or pregnancy cookbook.
If your friend doesn't have time to read or cook, perhaps a Carmel Latte flavored Angel Milk shake will enable her to take a step in the right direction....and make you look so smart! And for the on-the-go future mom, the Baby Needs Chocolate Bellybar packs in many of these special nutrients needed, including Omega 3 DHA.

Adhidhi you can gift her some good books which is related to pregnancy and parenting... gift her a album of new born photos with cute expressions. you can also give her mp3 player with her fav songs.

present a notebook with do and donts during pregnancy. that would be helpful for her as well as for her child.

I saw a friend of a friend in USA send her pregnant friend freshly home made murukkus, atharasams, seedai, thattai and laddus. She packed them in cute cellophane bages with pink bows and put all of them in a gift box and shipped them. Its sometimes hard to get good quality indian snacks here in USA depending on where you live...so I thought that was a great gift idea.

I gave my friend: "what to expect while expecting" book ...but since your friend has almost completed 9 months, "what to expect the first year" could be a good gift book.

Other ideas are :
portait photo session: arrange a professional photographer and take some unforgettable photos of her fully pregnant look.
A fun and surprize baby shower with all her friends (Not valaikaapu). Google for fun baby shower ideas.

Hope you find a great gift that she will love! Good luck.
