Dining out may be a no-no this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate Mother’s Day in style. Yes, we love our mothers (almost) every day, but Mother’s Day is that special occasion to give a special gift and show our love and appreciation for her.
Choosing gifts that please the receiver can be tricky, but nothing beats picking a little something for someone in your family. Sometimes, having known someone all their life can mean unintentionally overlooking the tiny details about them that change over time. That’s why Mother’s Day is a lovely opportunity to focus and reflect on our mums, what they’re like as a person, and what they would actually like. The process could be tedious or fun: either you know what to pick, or you haven’t the faintest idea.
So, where does one begin? That’s when gift guides come in handy. We’ve narrowed down the choices to a fine selection that would surely please mum.
New York’s lifestyle brand Tory Burch makes some of the loveliest gifts for every woman. The label’s Autumn/Winter 2021 collection allows its wearer to go about their errands, from formal to casual, in style. Choose from Tory Burch’s famous bucket bag or tote to go with a matching purse. Another great option is a comfortable pair of Eleanor loafers, a bracelet with the brand’s gold logo, or some lovely scarves with the iconic ‘T Monogram’.

Pleats Please Issey Miyake
Issey Miyake’s Pleats Please items are easy, comfortable and beautiful. Their latest AW21 collection, Atlas and Sunset, make for a great mother’s day present.

On the other hand, Sunset captures the colour of the setting sun and comes in a choice of single colour blocks and two-tone combinations.

Louis Vuitton bags are good, but for a Mother’s Day gift, perhaps slightly too predictable. Aside from the famous monogram bags, surprise mum with Louis Vuitton’s latest jewellery collection: B Blossom.

Using Louis Vuitton’s iconic monogram flower, the 2021 collection features a medley of beautiful pieces—bracelets, earrings and pendants—in gold, along with colourful blossoms made of precious stones including onyx, malachite, agate and opal.
