13 Mother’s Day Gift Ideas & Experiences To Treat The Special Women In Your Life

This Mother’s Day, it’s time to remember and celebrate the special women in your life including Mum, Mother-in-law, Grandma and Aunt. When it comes to gifts, it’s the thought that counts but it doesn’t hurt to indulge in a luxurious gift or a splendid meal to pamper a chic mother and satisfy even the most discerning of tastes. Read on for our curated list which includes presents, a spa package, and dining options.

Statement Pieces from Tiffany & Co.

A Blue Box from Tiffany’s doesn’t have to be an expression of romantic love, it can also be an appreciation of the maternal love showered on you. A timeless icon inspired by an 1883 brooch, Lock by Tiffany is an expression of love’s enduring protection, and there is no stronger love than the love of a mother. Opt for the Tiffany Lock Bangle in Rose Gold with Full Pavé diamonds, expertly crafted with round brilliant diamonds. Another dazzling statement piece for the person who has looked after you since before you were born is the Jean Schlumberger by Tiffany & Co. Bird on a Rock brooch. Created in platinum and 18k yellow gold with a Fancy Intense Yellow diamond, white diamonds, and a pink sapphire, it is a labour of love that requires more than 50 hours to make.

A lady’s hair is a crowning glory, so get her a gift that helps her to care for it.

For the mum who prides in styling her hair, add on the Dyson Airwrap multi-styler (RM2,899) with 13 attachments that help to curl, shape, smooth and hide flyaways with no extreme heat.


Jewellery from Chaumet inspired by Empress Joséphine

As the first wife of Emperor Napoleon I, Joséphine was the Empress of the French, known for her exquisite taste, adapting the aesthetics of the 18th century to fit her whimsical spirit. For the queen of your life, select exceptional pieces from the maison that echo its muse’s taste. The Joséphine Aigrette Pendant (£4,760) combines the brilliance of diamonds with the iridescent sparkle of pearls, in a reinvention of their emblematic V-shape aigrette. Another exquisite piece is the Joséphine Aigrette 0.50 Carat Solitaire (price on demand), set with a pear-shaped diamond of approximately 0.50 carat and brilliant-cut diamonds, a timelessly elegant ring that will gleam on any majestic finger.
