If you’re ever left frantically searching through the shops the Saturday before Mother’s Day, then this post is for you.
Mother’s Day is all about showing gratitude to your mother or a mother figure in your life regardless of whether you’re 15 or you’re 50. It’s also about celebrating motherhood in general - for example, the mother of your children.
Often, breakfast in bed and a Mother’s Day card is enough to put a smile on her face, but sometimes, they deserve to be treated to something a little more luxurious.
Keep reading for the top five best luxury gift ideas ready for this Mothering Sunday.
A Jewellery Box
Everybody needs somewhere to store their precious jewellery, and a jewellery box is the ultimate jewellery storage solution.
You can find jewellery boxes that have a compartment for each style of jewellery. Many jewellery boxes have a section at the bottom for larger pieces such as chunky necklaces or watches, smaller drawers for bracelets and rings, and a section on the top that places earrings.
However, some jewellery boxes are simple, with a lid that opens to display the jewellery collection.
Jewellery boxes can come in all shapes and sizes - you can find glass jewellery boxes that give a clear view of the contents, wooden jewellery boxes for a rustic feel, stylish velvet boxes, modern round boxes, and even jewellery boxes with a lock for ultimate protection.
It’s a great way of ensuring that jewellery doesn’t get lost, and is stored in the best possible way. Jewellery boxes can protect jewellery from wear and tear.
A Personalised Necklace
Nothing says ‘I appreciate you’ like a personalised gift. In 2022, you can personalise pretty much any gift - especially jewellery.
A great go-to Mothers Day gift is an initial necklace. You can find a quality necklace with your mother’s initials whether you opt for stainless steel, gold, silver, or a modern rose-gold look. Another idea is to purchase a pendant with your mother’s initials - you can find luxury pendants from retailers such as Pandora, H. Samuel, Tiffany. Another option is Etsy - with a wide variety of personalised pendants including stylish letter pendants.
Many people will purchase a necklace that says ‘mum’ or ‘mom’ in it too, which always makes a great gift for Mothering Sunday. You can find this type of necklace in the shape of a heart, a circle, or even a family-tree style necklace.
A thoughtful idea for a personalised necklace is to purchase a stylish locket necklace with a photograph of your mother with you as a baby, a family photo, or a picture of all of your mother’s children. This is something she’s sure to cherish forever.
A New Bag
If your mum or the mother of your children is fashion-forward or not, she’s sure to appreciate a new bag. Not only are bags stylish, but they’re also extremely practical - with space for the essentials such as phone, purse, sunglasses, keys, chewing gum, makeup, and much more.
However, not everybody is familiar with the world of bags. A great go-to brand is Radley, known for its durable and luxury feel, and the classic Scottie dog logo. Radley bags can cost anything from £30 to over £200 - but the price tag is certainly worth it.
The biggest bag trend in 2022 is the bucket bag, which is functional, versatile, and super stylish. However, if you’re unsure, take a look at the bags that the person you’re buying for usually wears. If she wears mostly shoulder bags, then take a look at some luxury shoulder bags. If she frequently attends fancy meals or events, then opt for a stylish clutch. However, you can’t go wrong with a classic handbag!
To add a personal touch, you could always purchase a bag charm with their initials, or a charm of their favourite animal.
A Pair of Stylish Sunglasses
Mother’s Day usually brings the start of summer and the end of spring, which of course means plenty of sunshine.
Sunglasses can come in all shapes and sizes - thick round frames, cat-eye frames, butterfly frames, square frames, and many more. Try to choose a style that will match your mother’s style - if they have a more reserved style, then maybe classic wayfarer frames will be the best choice. However, if they have a retro style, then opt for round frames or mirrored lenses.
There are a variety of luxury sunglasses brands to choose from, so if you’re not sure where to look, we recommend Ray Bans, Chloe, Prada, Gucci, DKNY, or Valentino.
However, although sunglasses are a great fashion accessory, they also serve a practical purpose. Ensure that sunglasses have enough UV protection to prepare for the summer season - and remember, a high price tag doesn’t usually mean sufficient UV protection.
A Luxury Watch
A luxury watch is something that your mother is sure to cherish for years to come. Many Mother’s Day gifts are disposable and will get used in a week or two - for example, candles, bath bombs, chocolates, and skincare products.
However, a watch is timeless - and is a gift that will be treasured. In 2022, you can find watches made using a variety of materials, but stainless steel is always a good choice. It’s a durable metal that won’t break the bank, and looks sleek, modern, and classy.
There are plenty of watch retailers out there, but a great place to look is our very own Amavi Ladies Amor Collection.
Watches in this ladies collection all have a modest price tag of under £160, making it a great gift for your mother.
Different watches will have different movements, but the watches in the Amavi Amor Collection have a reliable Miyota quartz movement, which is certain to provide an accurate time for many years.
There are stylish rhinestone indexes at every hour for a luxury look, as well as integrated bracelets crafted from luxury brushed stainless steel. Whether you choose the Amor Rose, the Amor Sapphire, the Silver Jewel, or the Golden Pearl, your mother is sure to appreciate the thoughtful, stylish, and practical Mothers Day gift.
