Finding the perfect gift for new parents can be a challenge. The list of things to buy often feels endless, and of course, there's always the risk of buying something they already have. So, how about buying the expectant parents something completely unique?
We've lovingly created stunning jewellery and accessory designs that make ideal gifts for new parents who have everything – because we know what a challenge gift-buying can be!
Here are our top picks that make gorgeous gifts for new parents.
Baby heartbeat jewellery
Capture the image of a baby's true heartbeat on a stunning piece of jewellery – including a silver heart necklace, a heartbeat locket and a heartbeat heart keyring. The reverse of these pieces can be personalised with a message of your choice, making this gift a wonderfully unique and special present for new parents to treasure forever.
All we need is a sound clip or video of the heartbeat that you would like to use (we will use approximately five seconds of the clip). You simply upload this to our Magic Print Uploader once you place your order. The sound can be captured on a mobile device such as a smartphone using the video setting or voice recorder.
Each of these heartbeat pieces is from our Engraved Range. This means that the artwork is engraved onto the surface of the charm and comes with a 12-month no-fade guarantee. Your finished piece of jewellery will come beautifully presented in a Hand on Heart jewellery box and delivered to your door.
A five-star review for the baby heartbeat heart necklace says: "The item I bought was beautiful and loved by my partner. It made for a very personal gift, and the quality is brilliant. It was also a very easy process to follow, and the item arrived very quickly after I ordered it."
A five-star review for the locket says: "Absolutely amazed with these two beautiful lockets; they are perfect. Love having my little baby boys' heartbeat so close to my heart, the detail on both of them is amazing, and I couldn't thank you enough. Such sentimental gifts, we will treasure them always."

'This Mummy Belongs to…' necklace
This necklace is extremely popular – and it makes a stunning gift for an excited mum-to-be. Crafted from beautiful sterling silver, the front of this design is engraved with 'This Mummy Belongs To...' and the reverse is then engraved with a name or a message of your choice. If the expectant parents don't yet know the name of their beautiful bundle of joy, then you can simply write a lovely message on the reverse instead. There’s also a bracelet option too.
Satisfied customers are incredibly important to us at Hand on Heart. We're extremely grateful for the amazing five-star reviews and wonderful comments we have received for this piece of jewellery.
The lovely feedback for this necklace includes comments such as: "Very happy with the order process and delivery. Bought as a gift for my daughter who'd just had her first baby. She thought it was beautiful and even cried when I gave it to her." And: "I bought this for my mum and my sister from my little boy. The quality is just amazing and so pretty! Delivery was extremely quick, and customer service was great – will definitely be ordering from Hand on Heart again."
If the parents-to-be know the name…
If the soon-to-be parents know the name of their arrival (and you're pretty sure they won't change their minds!), then our initial jewellery would make a stunning gift for new parents.
For him, there are some gorgeous options, including our personalised initial oval cufflinks. A timeless gift he can treasure forever, they can be crafted using any initials. The cufflinks are presented in a stunning keepsake box engraved with a personalised message of your choice, each stainless steel cufflink is engraved with the initials you supply. Your finished piece of jewellery will come beautifully presented in a Hand on Heart jewellery velvet pouch and delivered to your door.
For her, you're spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting something beautiful from our name and initial jewellery range. From bracelets to charms, there's something for everyone's tastes and preferences. We especially love the initial necklaces in either a star or circle charm (available as one charm or two!). These are lovingly hand-stamped with an initial of your choice and added to the delicate chain, making it a beautifully simple design. They are presented in a luxury Hand on Heart jewellery gift box – the perfect finish for a gorgeous gift for new parents.
Can't decide? Order our special edition starter pack and choose later!
While our handprint and footprint jewellery are extremely popular gifts, of course, expectant parents won't yet have the prints of their precious bundle of joy. That's where our special edition starter pack comes in. It makes a wonderful present on its own, but it's also ideal for the parents who can take the prints when their baby is born, and then you can decide which gift to buy for them at a later date.
The kit comes with:
1 x Luxury Hand on Heart two-part presentation gift box
2 x Magic handprint/footprint wipes
2 x Pieces of magic card
Full instructions on how to take the perfect prints
(It's possible to create approximately 8 baby-sized prints with one single wipe and card). The prints will be suitable for any of our jewellery designs – all we will need is a photograph of the print you would like to use.
There are many beautiful options to choose from in our handprint and footprint range, including necklaces, bracelets, charm beads, cufflinks, and keyrings. And these kits are also the perfect way to take prints to put in a Baby Book or even frame as a reminder of how tiny they once were!
Welcoming a new baby to the family is such an exciting occasion! We hope we've offered some inspiration for what to buy new parents who have everything. Personalised keepsakes that are unique to them and their growing family are beautiful gifts they'll treasure forever.
