Luxury Gifts For An Unforgettable Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is a fantastic opportunity to show the mothers in your life how much they mean to you. Whether you’re purchasing a gift for your own mother or mother-in-law, or you’re planning to buy a gift for your partner on behalf of your little one, there are a multitude of options that will shower any mum with affection and love on their special day.

Here at Poppie & George, we’ve come up with a range of luxurious gifts and ideas that all mums are sure to love on their big day.

Experience day

Why not whisk the special mother in your life away for an exciting experience day? There are a plethora of options available; you could book an exclusive meal at the top of The Shard, plan a pampering spa day, or even buy a place on an exclusive workshop (from cooking and cocktail-making to make-up artistry and flower-arranging). Hot-air balloon rides, glamping experiences and trips to the opera are also wonderful options.

Jewellery

You can’t go wrong with jewellery as a gift for any occasion. If you’re purchasing jewellery as a gift for Mother’s Day, why not make it something they could hand down through the generations? Charm bracelets are popular for this purpose, as are necklaces and brooches. Not only will the special mother get to wear it with pride for the rest of her life, she’ll also have a sentimental heirloom to pass on to her sons or daughters.

Luxury hamper

From Harrods to Fortnum & Mason, all of the top luxury stores offer a Mother’s Day hamper that is sure to make any woman feel incredibly special and appreciated. These include all of the traditional gifts – candles, chocolates, champagne – as well as a few interesting treats.

Recipe book

We’re not talking about a book of Nigella’s most famous recipes – we’re talking about a blank recipe book, which the lucky mother can fill with her own creations, from her beloved banoffee pie to her wonderful risotto. For the mum who spends lots of time in the kitchen whipping up delicious meals and desserts, this makes a fantastic gift.

Choose a high-quality brand like Smythson or Moleskine and have it personalised to make it even more special. Once it’s full, this can also be handed down to the next generation, keeping mum’s tasty recipes in the family.

Repurpose an existing item

This interesting option is fantastic for creating a gift with real sentimental value. Take an existing item with lots of meaning, and turn it into a piece of art or a beautiful keepsake. Baby’s first shoes, for example, can be positioned in a beautiful frame and kept forever. The same goes for christening dresses, dribble bibs or some lace from an old wedding gown.

Perhaps the mum in question has an old piece of costume jewellery that she wants to keep but doesn’t necessarily wear. With her permission, of course, have it re-purposed into something much more up-to-date, keeping the vital components and breathing new life into the vintage piece. These thoughtful and meaningful gifts make for a fantastic Mother’s Day, with the recipient feeling truly cherished.

As parents, we want to be able to capture all those special moments of our little one's lives. But when you’re not a professional photographer, sometimes capturing those picture perfect moments can be frustrating.


As famous photographer WC Fields once said - “never work with animals or children.”


And when you’re a parent you can understand why. Not only because your model is often a wiggle bum, but also because the lighting might not be great, or you’ve realised you can see the giant pile of ironing in the background.
