Mother’s Day Gift Ideas: 3 Custom Necklaces for the Moms in Your Life

Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate the moms in your life and the extraordinary love they give. Whether it’s your partner, a good friend who just became a mom, or your own mom, make her feel truly special with a personalized pendant necklace that’s inspired by her unique style. Here are three simple, meaningful ways to create a custom Mother’s Day gift that’ll give her all the feels.

Personalized gift: Birth Date Necklace

Inspired by: Her kids’ birth dates

Try it for: Your friend who’s a new mom, or your own beloved mom

This gift is especially fitting for extra-sentimental moms—and brand new moms. Let’s say your birthday (or your friend’s baby’s birthday) is April 17: Head to our Custom Necklace Builder and create a Hidden Message Necklace with number pendants. Choose a metal and a length for the chain, then add the “4,” “1,” and “7” pendants. For a simple, pretty style that sits close to the collarbone, try the 18’’ chain with the number pendants in mixed metals: 14k rose gold, 14k gold, and sterling silver. Looking for an already designed option? Go for a pendant necklace with a birthstone gem of your choice (from ruby to tourmaline to sapphire) and a sweet hidden heart design that only she will know about.

Personalized gift: HEART Pendant Necklace

Inspired by: Her personal jewelry style

Try it for: Your cool aunt or your stylish stepmom

If you’re not sure where to begin with your Mother’s Day gift, a great way to get inspiration is to think about the type of jewelry you see your aunt or stepmom wearing the most often. Does she have a penchant for subtle gold jewelry, as in a wearable style she can put on whether she’s hosting a party or picking up groceries at the farmers market? Try the HEART Symbol Pendant Necklace in 14k gold. Maybe she loves moonstone, with its earthy, bohemian vibe. Our Rose Gold Birthstone HEART Pendant Necklace accentuates the contrast between the softly pink metallic pendant and the bright stones. If she’s all about glitz and glam—we’re talking diamonds — go with the White Gold Diamond HEART Pendant Necklace, which features white or black diamonds. By homing in on what she really loves—her style and jewelry MO—the gift will mean that much more to her.

Personalized gift: Symbol Pendant Necklace

Inspired by: A nickname or symbol that brings her joy

Try it for: Your doting partner or your warm mother-in-law

Do you have an endearing nickname for your partner? Create a necklace to match that meaningful name, or design a necklace with your initials and a heart pendant. If your mother-in-law goes by a special nickname — say, if everyone calls her “Kiki” — choose letter pendants that spell it out, or go with a single pendant with the first initial. Then choose metals and a chain length you think are the most “her.” If she loves a certain symbol (a good tip is if she features it in her home decor) she’ll adore a Symbol Pendant Necklace, like the PEACE Symbol or the ANCHOR Symbol.

a sterling silver 'MAMA' necklace

Perhaps the best choice if you’re still searching for a way to show how much you appreciate her? The MAMA Necklace, which gets right to the heart of who she is.
