A bunch of flowers is always gorgeous, and a box of chocolates hits the spot, but if you’re interested in selecting something a little more personal for Mother’s Day this year, our gift edit is here to help.
Whether she gave birth to you, raised you, or guided you along the way, a mother’s love is unique. And if you inherited your sense of style from your mama, she’s sure to love this curated collection of gift ideas!
The Esther team have pulled together their favourite pieces for every sort of mum and mother figure in your life, from silky scarves and on-trend hair accessories to sentimental jewellery that will hold a special place in her heart.
Giving jewellery is a thoughtful and deeply personal way to show your love and appreciation. Our stylist recommends avoiding trends and sticking to the classics for style longevity.
With its Tiffany & Co-style toggle fastening, the gold Kiera Necklace is sure to be a staple for her work wardrobe and weekend outfit rotation alike. Worn alone as a statement piece or layered with the necklaces already in her jewellery box, a beautiful gold chain never goes out of style.
Get a little more sentimental with a totally unique, personalised piece like the Signature Necklace, available in 18k gold fill, 18k rose gold fill or 925 sterling silver depending on her preferences. The slender vertical bar allows the delicate engravings on the front and back to stand out. Add your hometown coordinates, a special date like a birthday, her name or initials, or whatever special inscription you choose to be carried around with her.
And the best part of giving a beautiful piece of jewellery? She might let you borrow it!
She taught you to accessorise, so it’s only fair that you add to her collection. As Mother’s Day falls in autumn, an in-between season accessory like the chic leopard print Reow Scarf or the chocolatey, spotted Iza Scarf will serve her transitional wardrobe well.
Seeking style inspiration from the silver screen sirens of Old Hollywood, the Bandita Bandana can be used as a silky headscarf (à la Audrey Hepburn and Brigitte Bardot), tied to her favourite bag to elevate an outfit during the week, or added to a ponytail for a simple, put-together look.
The humble hair scrunchie is set to be the hair accessory of 2021. If mum threw out her own collection after the 1980s and 1990s, there’s never been a better time to start a new one as scrunchies reach new heights of popularity among bloggers and younger celebrities. Try the Moss Soma Scrunchie to complement a darker wardrobe colour palette, or embrace the throwback with a neutral, wear-with-anything Corduroy Scrunchie.
Mother’s Day always falls in the perfect season for gifting a failsafe fashion moment. Opt for a cosy cardigan that will see her through the coming months, choosing from on-trend neutrals like the creamy wool-blend Moneta Cardigan or the dusty pink Bassike Cardigan with adorable pom pom detailing.
If you’ve been ‘borrowing’ clothes from your mum’s wardrobe for the past decade or two, choosing a bolder piece that you know will look right at home in her rotation should be an easy feat. She’s likely to love our popular Nicolette Knit, perfect for spicing up a pair of tailored trousers for work, or give her a new LBD for any occasion with the Allday Dress. Designed to follow and complement the contours of a woman to a tee, this bodycon beauty is just as easily dressed up with a jacket and winter boots as it is with heels and a statement necklace come spring and summer.

Whether she’s eco-conscious or simply loves sending you pictures of her cocktail creations, these Metal Straws are beautifully practical. Presented in a pouch with a special slim cleaning brush making them easy to maintain, each straw is a different size to cater to different beverages - iced coffee, green juice, gin and tonic, and everything in between.
Beauty loving mums will appreciate the latest trend in anti-ageing techniques at home. Featuring 540 medical grade titanium micro needles, the 0.3mm Derma Roller is designed to assist with natural exfoliation, enhances circulation, and softens the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It’s the gift of beauty with benefits.
