The hip mum
We have always loved the SQ38 Plano watch from Squarestreet, but the Milanese collection has us swooning even more, and we know your mum will love it too. From the super flat dial to the elegant blue packaging, the new Rose Gold edition will look picture perfect on any hip mum’s wrist. When it comes to winning Mother’s Day gifts, it doesn’t get much better than this.

The mum who loves to bake
If your mum is a dab hand in the kitchen, why not gift her some beautiful and eco-friendly kitchen goodies from Bamboa? We love the colourful selection of bowls, utensils and platters that they stock, and the best part is that none of them hurt the planet.

The mum who loves cruelty-free products
Have a mum who enjoys taking long baths and trying different face and beauty products? Head to Lush and pick her up a selection of bath bombs or treat her to some cruelty-free makeup from their incredible range on the second floor. Alternatively, knock her socks off with a treatment at the Lush Spa (we can totally vouch for them!)

The cake-loving mum
Food is one of our favourite Mother’s Day gifts! Of course no celebration is complete without a wonderful cake, and VIVE Cake Boutique makes some of the most amazing offerings in town. Order a specialty cake in a range of different designs and flavours, or give mum a choice with a selection of small cakes. Either way, everyone is sure to be happy with the outcome.

The organised mum
Why not make life a little easier for your mum this year by getting her a practical and pretty wooden desk organiser? Crafted from Prime A Grade English Oak and Amish American Black Walnut, it can be carved to include a name or a special message on the front (maybe I <3 U?) Best of all, this gift is totally useful with grooves big enough to hold a tablet, two smartphones and all the lipsticks, earrings and chocolates she needs.

Lala Curio is a brand that is constantly seeking out ways to marry tradition and modernity, and these Annei Obi baguette pillows are no exception. Made using vintage obis from Japan that the founder has collected during her travels, these pillows will add a sense of mystery and intrigue to any powder room or salon.
