001. Riot Mthrrr Lightning Bolt and Mama Gang Blue Heart Enamel Pins, £6 each
I am addicted to pins lately and I'm collecting a right lovely stash of rad pins to adorn our changing bag with. These brand new enamel pins from Riot Mthrrr over on Etsy are perfect for the alternative mama, something different to the usual 'congratulations!' gift and totally perfect for giving mamas a little pick me up. At £6 each or £11 for the pair, they're great for a small gift that doesn't break the bank.

003. Stanley and Maud Sterling Silver Bar Necklace, £32
If the mama in question is a fan of the more sentimental keepsake gifts, then this is the perfect option - a sterling silver bar necklace that can be customised to include the name of their little one! With space for up to 10 characters you can easily fit most names on one of these beauties and it is sure to make any new mama feel special and important.

004. Land and Furrow Mama Bear Enamel Pin, £6
OK, I'm definitely addicted to pins but this one is super sweet and simple and would be great for any new mama bears out there. There's something about the phrase 'mama bear' that I really love, a phrase that suggests love and protection. Mama themed pins are great because they can go on clothing, handbags, changing bags or even popping on your dressing table as a sweet daily reminder of the wonderful journey all mamas are on.

005. Woody and Florence Mama Waxed Cord Bracelet, £3.95
A simple yet beautiful bracelet bearing the word 'mama' and available in different colour combinations, this is the most purse-friendly of my picks. I have this bracelet myself and I cannot tell you how much I adore it - so much so I plan to get it for my friends birthday who is also a mama! The original beaded mama bracelet, it'd make the most lovely sweet gift for the new mama in your life.

New babies always get spoiled, so it's nice a lovely thought to get the mama a sweet gift too. After all, their life has just changed forever, and that is definitely something worth celebrating!
