A Meghan Markle Birthday Gift Guide (It’s Coming Up on August 4!)

Hear ye, hear ye: Meghan Markle turns the big 3-8 on August 4. It may not be a milestone birthday in the traditional sense, but it is a meaningful one. After all, it’s the first time she’ll be celebrating as a new mom. (Let’s just say her hubby Harry better bring it with the “To Mum, Love Archie” gifts.) In honor of the occasion, we put together a gift guide of some very Markle-y things. Because—in our opinion—treating yourself is the most royal way to celebrate. 

*This* Is How Meghan Markle Is Spending Her First Birthday as Duchess


Cuyana Classic Structured Leather Tote

She carried this brand on her royal tour in Australia and for her lavish baby shower in NYC. But, most recently, she busted out this bag—a more oversized option—for Wimbledon (with a monogram, no less).

Lingua Franca

Lingua Franca Cashmere Sweater

Speaking of Markle’s trip to New York, she supposedly gifted a custom piece from this sustainably-sourced (and statement-making) line to guests at her February baby shower. The message? “Baby, Baby, Baby,” of course.

Rothy’s Black Solid Pointed Toe Flat

It was Markle’s shoe of choice down under in Australia. It doesn’t hurt that it’s comfortable, versatile and eco-friendly, too.


Verse Love Letter Necklace

Sure, Markle got the letter “A” for Archie, but feel free to mix it up by donning your own initial. (Back-up plan: Personalize it with the initial of your spouse, your mom or your kids.)

Tatcha’s Rice Polish Foaming Enzyme Powder

This exfoliator—a favorite of Markle’s—is based on a centuries-old Japanese skin care tradition that uses finely ground rice bran and papaya enzymes to cleanse skin for a smoother, brighter complexion. 


Veja Sneakers

It was the athleisure look heard ‘round the world: Markle wore this classic sneaker style aboard a sailboat in Sydney Harbour to watch the Invictus Games. (It also pairs well with everything—from denim to a dress.)

Frank & Eileen

Frank & Eileen White Button-down Shirt

Markle swears by the perfect fit of this button-down brand so much, she got a similar style for Harry. (They both wore it on tour in Australia.)



Birdies Starling Flats

The 7-layer cushion technology was enough to convince a newly pregnant Markle—and us—to make these slippers a travel staple.
