Before I proceed with this list of thoughtful ideas, I want to say that never has the phrase “know your audience” been more true than when choosing a gift for someone struggling with infertility.
While the gifts below are designed to be supportive, some women do not want to be reminded of their trouble to conceive. A simple note to show you are thinking of them may be all they need.
If you do want to give something special or are looking for yourself, Etsy is one of my favorite places to find cute fertility presents.
There are even some Etsy stores that are dedicated to selling infertility support gifts and good luck charms, here are some of the best ones to check out:
Lottie and Co is run by an IVF mom who is inspired to encourage and support others on their journey! They specialize in fun and inspiring fertility tees and socks.
A portion of each sale will be donated to Resolve.org – a national organization that provides resources for infertility counselling, represents legislation that supports and encourages family building options, and raises awareness for the millions of people battling infertility.
Fertility in Focus sells thoughtfully-designed planners for women undergoing IVF. A fertility planner is one of the best gift ideas for a friend struggling with infertility because IVF and IUI can be really stressful with lots of appointments and things to remember. A pretty planner can help them stay organized and keep track of everything.
As the name suggests, Lil’ Rainbow Babies offers printable digital downloads, apparel and gifts designed especially for celebrating babies conceived after a pregnancy or infant loss and honoring the angel babies who came before. While their products are designed especially for babies conceived after miscarriage, stillbirth or infant loss, they have some nice gifts for someone who has had a miscarriage as well as some cute inspirational items.
