There’s nothing stronger than a mother’s love. Show how much the First Lady of the house means to you this Mother’s Day with these five gift ideas that will make mum smile.

The hotel’s afternoon tea gift set (RM160) will be delivered on Mother’s Day between 11 am to 2 pm, featuring a selection of classics the likes of vegetable quiche, chicken pie, butter and raisin scones, finger sandwiches, miniature mille-feuille, cheesecake, vanilla eclair, and more.

Put a rainbow on her wrist
To ensure the limited-to-101-pieces Fleurs De Jardin Rainbow (RM1,651,200) accurately captured a rainbow’s majesty, Jacob & Co used 40 rainbow sapphires on the watch’s 42.5mm 18k rose gold bezel and 48 more rainbow sapphires on the inner ring. Sitting on top of the movement is a beautiful green, 288-facet Jacob-cut Tsavorite, while the frame carrying 11 flowers with kite-shaped multicoloured sapphires, the flying tourbillon and the time display rotating clockwise once around the dial in ten minutes. The case shines in 18k rose gold, while the dial is made from Mother of Peal and titanium PVD rose gold.

Upgrade her kitchenware
There’s a wide assortment of practical and decorative gifts to be found in Royal Selangor’s Mother’s Day collection. There’s the tactile fluting, voluptuous Savoy container (RM290) to store either food, flower or small items from the Savoy collection, a dedicated range created in homage to the iconic art deco London hotel. There’s the elegantly tapered spire flagon Hartford Jug – Liberty (RM900), a handsome decanter for wine, juice or water which will bring quiet dignity to the table. If mum knows her highland single malts from her smoky Islay whiskies, there’s the handsome Hexagon whisky decanter (RM690) to go alongside a matching pair of Hexagon whisky tumblers (RM290).
