It is no secret that your surrogate is already giving you one of the most selfless gifts another person can provide to someone. As the surrogacy journey proceeds and you get closer to realizing your dreams of parenthood, you may be looking for a thoughtful gesture you can do for your surrogate to show how much their incredible act of kindness has meant to you and your future family. One way of showing your gratitude is to give your surrogate a great gift that will show them how you feel.
Elevate Baby is a surrogacy agency that provides guidance throughout each step of the surrogacy journey and after the child has been delivered. We are proud to provide support to the intended parents and surrogates we work with. Our surrogacy professionals will be there for you throughout each step of your journey and can help you decide on a thoughtful gesture that will help you show your surrogate appreciation for all they are doing to help you build a family.
Thoughtful Gift Ideas to Show Appreciation to Your Surrogate
Surrogates already give a gift to intended parents that may be difficult to compete with, but a thoughtful gesture can go a long way to make your surrogate feel appreciated as well. Giving a gift before the journey even begins can also help strengthen the growing relationship between you and the surrogate who will carry your future child.
Some of the most thoughtful gifts that will help show how much you care and appreciate your surrogate can include:
A “Pregnancy Survival Kit”
Intended parents can put together a gift basket of pregnancy favorites like your surrogate’s favorite snacks and stretch mark cream. The basket could even include some books about pregnancy or surrogacy. Many pregnant women also love pregnancy pillows that allow them to rest more comfortably, making this another great item to add to the basket or give on its own.
At Elevate Baby, it is our hope that you will form a close relationship with the surrogate you are matched with. If this is the case for you and your surrogate, a heartfelt gift can be a wonderful present to show your appreciation. The gift can be as simple as a card with a thoughtful note, a letter, or a pregnancy journal.
Maternity clothes will be a must-have for your surrogate throughout the journey. If you have a close enough relationship that you know or can ask her size, purchasing some comfy and cute maternity clothes is a great gift. You can also give your surrogate a gift card to a maternity brand to choose their own clothing.
Pregnancy is exciting but it can also be overwhelming at times. By providing some home-cooked meals that your surrogate does not have to prepare on their own, you can be lifting a huge weight off of their shoulders with this simple gift.
