MOTHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE:

FOR THE WOMEN WHO BALANCE OUR WORLDS

Paragraph

WORDS: MARNI ROSE MCFALL

At FLANNELS, we know that motherhood comes in all shapes and sizes. That’s why this Mother’s Day we’re taking a moment to celebrate the women who keep our worlds balanced - and shower them with the luxury gifts they deserve. From cult footwear via Miu Miu and Jimmy Choo to It bags by Prada and Jacquemus, these are the Mother’s Day gifts to treat her to this year.

1. FOREVER BAGS

There’s a lot of ways to say I love you. But saying it with one of the season’s trending bags? That’s fool proof. Bottega Veneta’s Sardine Bag is a key player. Coming in a rich shade of burgundy red (aka, one of the hottest trends of the season), it’s topped with a gold handle and comes complete with the brand’s signature intrecciato woven leather. A classic but statement-making piece. Jacquemus’ Bisou bag in rich chocolate brown features an oversized, pearl-style embellishment and captures Simone’s fun take on French style. The Saint Laurent Jamie Bag comes with a practical strap and roomy interior, meaning it’s perfect for the mum that’s always on the go. While Prada’s Leather Mini Bag delivers the kind of effortless style we’ve all grown up admiring.

BEST FOOT FORWARD

If she’s not just a regular mom, but a cool mom, then these chic footwear picks are a good place to start. Miu Miu’s Ballet flats have quickly become a cult classic and are guaranteed to please. Gucci’s Slingback Ballet Flats are the It shoe du jour, thanks to the cut-out detail and serious dose of monogram, while Bottega Veneta’s Jack Sandals will bring an elevated touch to your everyday. And if the object of your gifting is something of a statement maker? Jimmy Choo’s Talura Heels in jet black leather feature a all-out diamante strap and are as assertive as the woman you admire.

2. BEAUTY QUEEN

Top of the agenda for Mother’s Day is making sure she feels beautiful inside and out. Charlotte Tilbury’s Glowgasm Beauty Wand was made for elevating the everyday, while Clarins’ Lip Comfort Oil makes for an indulgent treat. Looking to refresh her favourite pieces? No makeup bag is complete without Estée Lauder’s cult Double Wear Foundation and Laura Mercier’s signature Translucent Setting Powder. While Nars has spring beauty sorted with vibrant pops of colour in the shape of their iconic Blush and High Intensity Lip Pencil.

3. FINISHING TOUCHES

If you’re angling for that ‘Child of The Year’ award, then one of these is guaranteed to land you first place. Vivienne Westwood’s cult Pearl Choker, embellished with the timeless Orb detail, will elevate any outfit. Marc Jacobs fun-loving accessories are a must: the baby pink Wallet and clever earrings-that-are-shaped-like-bags are sure to please. The Gucci Horsebit Card Case is the kind of elevated staple she’ll wear all year round. And as for Miu Miu? Their crystal headband says cool mom like nothing else.

1. FRAGRANCE MUST-HAVES

The best kind of gift? Sometimes, it’s a bottle of something special. And these are the ones on our radar this Mother’s Day. Tom Ford Beauty is coming up roses with the Rose Prick and Café Rose fragrances, which deliver unexpected twists on the floral favourite through notes of spicy Sichuan pepper and dark coffee. Jo Malone London’s Pomegranate Noir layers up the juicy red fruit on top of a spicy Casablanca Lily. There’s a good reason it’s a fan favourite. Feeling floral? Opt for the ultimate bouquet in a bottle with Gucci’s Flora Magnolia Parfum.

1. ALWAYS ON THE GO

Motherhood comes in all shapes and sizes, but one thing all mums have in common? Always being busy, and always being on the go. So, a pair of box-fresh sneakers that they can lace up and run off in are an absolute must-have. Top of the list? A pair of adidas Sambas, of course. Dubbed ‘The Sneaker Of The Year’ last year by Lyst, they put the ‘icon’ in iconic. Veja’s Campo Trainers are the ultimate wardrobe staple. This pair features a pop of matcha green and are a firm favourite for spring. Searching for something chunky? Opt for a pair of larger-than-life chunky trainers via New Balance and Axel Arigato. Mum can do Dad sneakers too.

1. NO PLACE LIKE HOME

Gifting for a homebody? Trust us, your mum and these luxe home buys will get on like a house on fire. Discotheque's Wag Club Scented Candle is anything but clichéd, thanks to the cheeky name and delicious notes of limoncello and orange zest. Elevate their morning coffee ritual with the Frida Mug from Jonathan Adler, which pays homage to the icon herself, Frida Kahlo. Something for the kitchen? LSA’s gold-rimmed Champagne Coupes will add a little extra to the everyday. How does mum stay organised? Well, luxury stationary like Dolce & Gabbana’s Casa Leopard Notebook helps. Bonus points for tapping into the viral mob wife aesthetic trend while you’re at it.
