We’re done with Valentine’s Day, and now Mother’s Day is the next celebratory and present-buying date in the calendar. You have a whole calendar month to decide what to get your Mum or a motherly figure in your life, but I wanted to help you get a headstart by putting together some stylish personalised gifts that i’ve found online. Who doesn’t love a monogram?!

You don’t need to spend a lot of money for an occasion like Mother’s Day – it’s just about showing you care and that you’ve thought of the person. That’s why I love personalised gifts (apart from the fact they are super-stylish), as they show that you haven’t just gone out and grabbed any old present.
I have so many personalised and monogrammed items – everything from socks and phone chargers to leather notebooks and blankets. No matter what it is, I will love it if it has my name or initials on it.
I’ve picked out seven personalised gifts that I want to give my Mum this year, to give you some inspiration. You can’t go wrong with a leather pouch, and Aspinal’s are so chic. It can be used as a makeup bag, a pencil case, a pouch for receipts, or as a pouch for phone chargers & cables. These pouches age so well too, so it’s something they’ll be able to use for years.
If you’d love to give a piece of personalised jewellery, but don’t want to spend too much, this rose gold name bracelet from Card Factory looks much more expensive than it is, and is in the hottest metallic shade of them all! It’s simple and will suit everyone.
I’m addicted to new pyjamas, as they just feel so special and cosy to sleep in. Silk pyjamas make a lovely gift, and when they’re embroidered with your name, they are even better. These are real girly pyjamas and would be great for a pamper night in with your Mum.
Word art, typography and monochrome prints are so popular right now, and you can really personalise this print with the kind and funny things that make your Mum special. It would fit in to a gallery wall, or look great as a piece of art on its own.
Since personalised Nutella seems only to exist for the festive season, the next best chocolate institution is Cadbury. If your Mum is a chocolate fan, she’ll love a giant personalised bar of Dairy Milk. Let’s just hope she shares.
Personalised towels look really chic in a bathroom. I love towels from Marks & Spencer as they are so fluffy and wash really well. Get your Mum a monogrammed towel, or a set for all of the family.
Finally, I love the pearlescent initial candles from the chicest homeward store around – Anthropologie. These candle jars make great ornaments or makeup brush pots after you’ve burned down all the wax too. Just pop the jar in the freezer for half an hour, and the remaining wax will just drop out mess-free.
