Last Minute Gift Ideas for Mum this Mother’s Day

You know the drill. Mother’s Day is quite literally upon us, and you’re still stuck on finding the perfect gift. Shopping for mum is always a bit of a struggle — you want her to have the very best, but she often insists she wants nothing but your company. When it comes to mum, we’ve learned the best route is to go for the pretty, the pampering, and best of all, the slightly sentimental — on a day dedicated to appreciating the “most important woman in our lives”, you want something that shows her how much you really care. For those of you who have yet to find the right gift, we’ve rounded up a list of last minute ideas that are as chic as they are meaningful.

If your mum is an avid tea enthusiast, this Marbled Teapot from Hay would make a great new addition to her home sweet home. With a rather captivating design of free-flowing, patterned swirls, this particular piece was made by mixing coloured porcelain and various clays with white stoneware. Design-wise, a classic shape with an easy grip handle and anti-drip spout makes it easier for mum to enjoy her afternoon tea. While subtle and sleek, it’s also eye-catching enough to make a great conversation starter piece the next time she has guests over — hopefully the guest will be you!

Shop Hay’s Marbled Teapot at the Norse Republics showroom, Sukhumvit 49/11.

She’s probably hustled most of her life to get you to where you are today — after years of caring for you, it’s your turn to pamper her. Especially curated to help mum relax, the Sense of Care Treatment at Shangri-La Hotel’s in-house spa is a great way to finally give mum the chance to unwind. With an emphasis on the scent of jasmine flowers — Thailand’s symbol for Mother’s Day — the dual massage treatment also provides the perfect opportunity to spend some quality time with mum. Expect a 90-minute treatment that starts with a relaxing warm oil, to rhythmic acupressure, deep stretching and meditation.

Available until the end of August. Book the treatment at Chi, The Spa by calling 0 2236 7777.

If your mum loves looking her best, a signature scent and a little touchup to the lips can go a long way to make her happy. Knowing this, Dior Beauty has released a special set of limited edition lip shades, especially chosen to be paired with three J’adore fragrances. Including Adorée, Joyeuse, and Rayonante, the sweet, feminine shades respectively symbolise love, happiness, and purity. With shimmers of speckled gold for an extra bit of extravagance, these lipsticks are sure to win her heart. 

Available exclusively at the Dior Boutique at Iconsiam.

Minimal yet rather meaningful, this jewellery line by Danish brand Design Letters was especially created to help express your love through added personal touches. Now available in Thailand for the first time ever, the jewellery features unique and timeless letter charms inspired by Nordic design. Each carefully hand-polished for a perfect sharp finish, the letters can be mixed and matched with various other charms and accessories for a personalised gift. With letters coming in both 16mm and 10mm, you can mix and match between the two sizes for an edgy look, or style it up with mini hearts for a sweet gift. Packaged in a grey metal box covered with phrases such as ‘Love’, and ‘For You’, this makes a lovely way to show your mum how much you love and appreciate her.
