Mother’s Day is coming up fast (it’s 26 March 2017, to save you checking) so we’ve put together a fabulous Mother’s Day gift guide to inspire your gift buying – particularly good for mums who love a holiday. Read on for inspiration…
A Jo Malone candle is the kind of gift you can’t go wrong with. Always luxuriously presented, we love this fruity pomegranate-topped scent with its base note of warm, smoky guaiac wood. Since it’s travel-sized, your mum can pop it in her washbag to make any hotel bathroom feel like home.
If you really want to treat your mum this Mother’s Day, do it with Kate Spade. This gorgeous rose-print tote is perfect for keen travellers; it’s roomy enough to make a brilliant carry-on and works for the beach, with plenty of pockets for passports and bits and pieces – all the things mums love.
If you have the kind of mum who always takes home hotel slippers, treat her to this blossom-print pair from Cath Kidston. Padded and comfy yet lightweight, they pack away easily in the matching storage bag and the peony blossom print will always remind her of holidays.
This soft-as-a-feather scarf comes in Burberry’s signature check design. Stylish, timeless and versatile, it’s made from 100% extra-fine merino wool and makes for a stylish and timeless travel companion, since it’s big enough to throw around you as a cosy shawl but folds up nicely in a handbag.
If your mum happens to be staying at the Princesa Yaiza in Lanzarote this March (or is looking for an excuse to visit), the hotel will help out by arranging a Mother’s Day surprise at the fabulous Thalasso & Spa Centre. They recommend the Lift or Parfait by Carita Paris; a luxurious 105-minute experience that will leave her relaxed, rejuvenated and feeling like new.
This lovely little gift set is designed for a good night’s sleep, with a soft eye mask and dream-inducing Sleep Pillow Mist. The mist features a soothing blend of frankincense, linden blossom and chamomile flower to encourage calm and tranquillity. Particularly good for brand new mums.
If she’s yet to discover the delights of an e-reader, the Kindle Paperwhite is one of the best on the market. Super lightweight and easy to read (even when it’s sunny or dimly lit), a single charge lasts weeks, so it’s perfect for holidays.
