It’s once again that time of year to spoil our favourite ladies. But no matter how much we love our mom’s - or how well we think we know their interests - it can still be a task to find an appropriate gift that encapsulates just how much we cherish and appreciate them.
To help in this endeavour, we’ve put together a luxury Mother’s Day gift guide that is sure to impress both your toughest critic and biggest supporter.
For the homebody
With winter rolling around, you can’t go wrong with a pair of comfy and cosy sandals - even better when they come in a range of fun colours. Birkenstock’s new Shearling Collection is just that. Luxuriously breathable and extra soft, the Shearling lining is made from anti-bacterial lamb’s wool with natural moisture-wicking properties. They’re also super stylish meaning she can easily go from lounging around the house to a cute Mom’s Day brunch date with ease.
For the fine fragrance fanatic
We’re loving Louis Vuitton’s latest cologne perfume, City of Stars. With notes of blood orange, lemon, red mandarin, bergamot and lime in harmony with sandalwood and Tiare flower, the fragrance is a fresh and uplifting citrus infusion that is sure to elevate your mom’s day.
For the art lover
What better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than by indulging in a magical cultural experience with her? Combining his famed sculptural works with awe-inspiring landscaping, the private garden of artist Dylan Lewis in Stellenbosch took just under two years to create and is an ideal destination for mums who appreciate both art and the outdoors. Here, you can explore 7 hectares of land dedicated to more than 60 of his sculptures set among varied indigenous species of plants - all tied together by his concept of “the wilderness withing.”
After a self-tour of guided one, spoil mom with a meal at the garden cafe or browse the awe-inspiring gallery.
For the self-care enthusiast
If anyone deserves rest and rejuvenation, it’s our mothers. Encourage your mom’s natural glow and healthy complexion with Dr Judy’s Mother’s Day Gift Pack from Biomedical Emporium.
Complete with a facial cleanser, collagen serum and peptide therapy, the products effectively shelter your skin against harmful extremities, dramatically increases skin hydration and protects the skin against oxidative stress. She’ll be looking 10 years younger in no time.
For the champagne connoisseur
No occasion is complete without a pop of champagne. Precede your heartfelt tribute to your mom with Moët & Chandon’s Rosé Impérial. It’s sparkling effervescence, seductive palate and warm blush hue, is the perfect accompaniment to a celebratory day.
For the foodie
Here’s an experience that mums with an enquiring palette will love. The third in chef Peter Tempelhoff’s stable of restaurants, Beyond restaurant is really what its name implies. Set among the picturesque Buitenverwachting vineyards, Beyond provides fine dining with heart and soul. Think sustainable and seasonal produce that celebrates provenance, dishes that delight with innovation and comfort, and a contemporary yet relaxed interior that makes the most of this spectacular lookout. You don’t get any more luxurious than this.
