What is the Mommy Countdown Calendar?

It's very simple: The Mommy Countdown Calendar works like an Advent calendar for moms-to-be. In the last trimester (last 12 weeks), the mommy-to-be opens a door every week and is spoiled with a lovely gift for herself.

What’s in the Mommy Countdown Calendar?

Lots of love and twelve beautiful, imaginative gifts that will enrich the waiting time during pregnancy! All gifts bring inspiration, relaxation and mindfulness for the mom-to-be. This box deliberately contains gifts for the pregnant woman and no baby items. This is particularly important to us, as expectant moms do amazing things and should definitely be pampered. In addition, you don't run the risk of giving baby equipment twice ;). If you want to know exactly, you can seethe contents of the mommy countdown calendar here - but if you want to be surprised, don't look too closely!

When should I give the calendar as a gift?

You can give the Mommy Countdown Calendar as a gift at any time during the pregnancy, because in addition to the gifts for the last 12 weeks (which start from the 29th week of pregnancy), there is also a mini Mommy Countdown Calendar in the form of a booklet to cross off from the 1st week of pregnancy. So you can give the calendar as a gift much earlier than 12 weeks before the birth.

Can I personalize the Mommy Countdown Calendar?

Of course! Make your gift something really special by adding the name of the child, the parents, the due date, a beautiful quote or a photo to the inside lid of the calendar box. For an additional “wow effect” when unpacking, you can also have the included piece of jewelry beautifully engraved and/or add a photo to the locket. Click here for the super duper configurator. Click on the “Personalize the calendar” button on the product page .

Can I still give the Mommy Countdown Calendar as a gift after the 29th week of pregnancy?

Absolutely! The doors can also be opened more frequently if the pregnancy is further along. It is important to pay attention to the order of the boxes. You start with the 12th door and then go backwards to number 1.

What if the baby is born early?

If the baby cannot wait and is born sooner, the remaining doors can be opened all at once, daily or still weekly. The new mother will certainly be happy to receive small gifts during the postpartum period.

Is there a "twin/multiple edition" of the calendar?

Of course! If you are expecting multiples, simply indicate in the "Comments" section of your order that you need the calendar for twins, triplets, quadruplets... Alternatively, you can also use the contact form .

Is there a "boys" or "girls" version of the calendar?

With one exception, the countdown calendar only contains gifts for the lucky mom-to-be. The gift for mom and baby is designed to be gender-neutral.

How and how quickly will the calendar be sent?

Each mommy countdown calendar is beautifully packaged in tissue paper in a secure box and sent by DHL Go Green . Without personalization, the calendar will be with you within 1-2 working days . We will send you a link to track your shipment by email (also check your spam folder) or SMS, depending on which contact form you specify when ordering.

You always talk about affirmations. What is that?

Each door of the calendar also contains a countdown attention card with a short text about the gift and how the recipient can best use it for themselves. Each card also contains a so-called affirmation, i.e. a motivating, positive sentence that fits the respective week of pregnancy. Affirmations - spoken several times quietly or out loud - bring calm, joy and mindfulness.

Why is this calendar also a memory box?

Each of the 12 boxes still has a little secret. If you turn them over , you can find a place to write something on the back. This way, the first little shoes, the favorite pacifier, greeting cards, photos and all the other treasured memories of pregnancy and the baby's first months can find a nice place to store them in the individual boxes.

The due date is still a while away?

You can sign up for ourreminder email service , which will remind you at the right time to treat yourself or a mom-to-be to a calendar. With the scratch-off calendar booklet, which is included in the Mommy Countdown Calendar, you can also start your personal countdown from the first week of pregnancy.

How long does it take to deliver a personalized mommy countdown calendar?

When ordering a personalization, you should expect a delivery time of approximately 5 - 10 days. In addition to the usual 1 - 2 days for shipping, there is also the production time for your very individual box design.

Can I leave out or replace a door?

If you think that the contents of one of the boxes do not suit the mom-to-be and/or you would like to fill a door with something personal, please contact us here.
Then we will definitely find a good solution!

However, to ensure that the Mommy Countdown Calendar remains our baby - developed with lots of love - this really only works for individual boxes!
