It's always nice to send a new mum a stack of itsy-bitsy clothes or soft toys when their bundle of joy arrives, but what about something that's just for her? Because while babygros are quickly outgrown, a personalised gift is something she can smile at long after she has donated said babygros to a fellow new mum. If you're looking for inspiration for Mother's Day, you could always follow the footsteps of Meghan Markle who has always been a fan of the personalised necklace, wearing a teeny-weeny pendant, with the initials of her children, Archie and Lilibet.
And there's plenty in the jewellery department, whether you're looking for an initial necklace -Annoushka's diamond-encrusted pendants are the gold-standard - or something a little more colourful, like the name bracelets from EMME Bracelets, handmade using hand-painted beads and letters. If they're not really a jewellery person, or another friend has pipped you to the post, Hades's alphabet sweaters are another safe bet. We also love the leather letter keyrings from Rae Feather, and think the wellness journals from Papier, which you can personalise with your friend's name, are also nice for encouraging a bit of much-deserved me time. Keep scrolling to see all the best personalised gifts for new mums just in time for Mother's Day.

Monica Vinader is one of Grazia's fave jewellery brands, you can always find something unique or unusual and we couldn't love the stacked rings more. For a personalised gift, the Alta and Ziggy Round Pendant Necklace comes with the option of engraving the pendant charm. Not only initials but you can also choose to add motifs, doodles or even upload an image.
Another star sign piece that we think makes a great gift. Instead of the symbol it is the star constellation that represents the wearer's sign. Finished in 18ct gold plating each constellation uses different stones like rose quartz, malachite, mother of peral, and Tiger Eye.
