Mothers Day Gift Guide
Treat your mother figure this Mother’s Day, Sunday 27 March, with the best fitness, beauty, food and fashion gifts
Is your mum a fitness fanatic? Give her wardrobe a refresh with workout wear from lululemon. Its latest technical gear is designed for speed; shop what’s new. More of a yoga or Pilates fan? Sweaty Betty is showcasing the softer side of strength with its Super Soft collection. Both retailers are also renowned for their leggings – and they make a perfect present. Needing new trainers? ASICS is the place to go for expert advice, while Peloton and John Lewis & Partners both have a range of fitness accessories.
No one forgets a gift from Penhaligon’s – it’s precious, personal and perfectly perfumed. Browse its Little Luxuries, Grand Gestures or Discovery Sets. For those who are not sure what to buy, Space NK has a range of gifts for her; think bath oils, Diptyque candles and bath salts. Elsewhere, create your own Mother’s Day gift at The Body Shop or browse its Mother’s Day Gift Guide. Rituals…’ sets come beautifully wrapped and ready to give; pick one to suit her energy with everything from Energising Treat to Soothing Routine.
Still searching for inspiration? Check out Kiehl’s, since 1851 Gifts For Her, or if you’re short on time and can’t pop into its Cabot Place store, Bobbi Brown has a range of Digital Beauty Services where you can connect live with one of its artists.
For many mother figures, the way to their heart is chocolate – and, after all, you need to ensure that you’re the favourite! – give her a box of Godiva’s heart-shaped boxes or go all out with its Chocolate Lover Hamper. Charbonnel et Walker’s classic truffles and chocolate boxes will make her feel special – we particularly love its chocolate and Champagne sets. Plus, with its chic, sunny packaging and luxurious contents, a box of Hotel Chocolat’s Mother’s Day selections will also go down a treat.
Don’t forget gifts from Tesco Metro and hampers and gourmet presents from M&S Simply Food, while Waitrose & Partners has a whole host of ideas to make her feel extra special. Finally, pick up a bottle of her favourite wine from Nicolas Wine Merchant.
Fashion & Accessories
Now that we’re well and truly into spring, present her with a bright and beautiful Bimba Y Lola scarf – its wildflower, garden and bird prints are sure to put a spring in her step too. Presents that are unique mean the world; check out Monica Vinader’s personalisation services and COACH’s gift collections.
Treat her to accessories from Claudie Pierlot, a belt from Sandro Paris or a handbag from Kate Spade New York. If she’s more of a casual sort of lady, check out loungewear options from COS. Finally, Maje, Massimo Dutti, Polo Ralph Lauren, L.K.Bennett and GANT are also worth a special mention.
