Mother’s Day is just a few weeks away and will be here before you know it. Usually, most of us are busy planning the perfect day for the best woman in our lives, hoping to pamper her and show her how much we appreciate her on this special day.
Even though life feels set on pause this year, we’re here to help you nail the perfect gift with ideas for your mom just a click away! After all, she deals with all of life’s curveballs, helps keep the family together and makes for the best quarantine partner.
Under the blazing summer sun, a nice pair of shades is both a necessity and a fashion statement. If you’re on the hunt for a sunglass trend that gives a little more oomph than basic black but is just as classic and neutral for your stylish mom, consider a bright white frame. Grab your favourite style — tiny, aviator, oversize, and more — in a clean white tone that really pops.
Alternatively, futuristic sunglasses have been trending for a few seasons’ past, but 2020 brings with it a new twist on the favourite. Instead of more sporty styles, try reaching for ones that have something a little more to offer when it comes to shape and silhouette, like an exaggerated size or spoked cat eye.
A trendy belt ties every ensemble together in a jiffy. Sitting in the middle of the waist, it will create an instant hourglass shape and complete your attire. This is a versatile accessory that will be on everyone this season, be it with a dress, skirt or pants; there are no rules.
To create a monochrome look, opt for a single shade across the entire outfit as it will give the illusion of length and won’t break the body’s sections from each other. Otherwise, belting around outer garments such as scarves and light cardigans or sweaters also give a lengthening effect. It is an item that will never go out of style, so make sure mom has this in her wardrobe for every occasion!
Treat your mom to a gorgeous new statement piece without spending a fortune. Costume jewellery is a fun way to jazz up any outfit. We like a great pair of ear cuffs or hoops that are always in fashion, much like mom herself. You could also go for stacking necklaces; we bet she’ll be raving about you amongst her friends the very next day.
Take your Mother’s Day idea even further by having her jewellery piece embossed with her initials. She will absolutely adore the attention to detail and the lengths you went to in order to give her a one-of-a-kind gift.
Chain Accent Heel
There’s a new shoe trend in town, and unlike a handful of other footwear fads we’re seeing on the horizon for the coming season, we think that chain accent heels is one that everyone can get behind because, well, it’s just lovely. Pretty chain details around the ankle are showing up on a handful of new spring/summer shoe styles to hit the internet already, and at this pace, we’re only expecting the momentum to continue.
After all, when every brand from Bottega Veneta and Saint Laurent to Topshop and Zara is on board, you know you’ve got something worth paying attention to, and this gift definitely falls into that category. With these shoes, she is sure to think of you every step she takes.
Wearing pyjamas is currently so on-point. There are silk pyjama tops you could even get away with wearing for waist-up video meetings or a festive, feather-trimmed pair for at home happy hours.
There are also classic pipe-lined silk pyjama sets to hide out under the covers in for the foreseeable future. Synonymous with cosiness, warmth and relaxation, pyjamas are the thing that everybody wants, but few will actually indulge in—especially if they fall at the more luxurious end of the spectrum. So, what better item to gift all your loving moms?
If your mom is always on the go – commuting to work, getting groceries, going to family events, taking vacations – then she needs a wallet that can keep up with her busy lifestyle. The zip or tab closure keeps her cards and other belongings safe and secure, while interior card slots help her stay organized.
If your mom is more of a minimalist, a simple bifold or mini wallet will help her attain maximum style with minimal effort. These small beauties easily fit inside a large tote or small clutch, giving her versatile style and convenience she’ll love.
What better way to show mom a token of your appreciation than a brand new, top-of-the-line handbag? No summer would be complete without a kaleidoscopic pop of bright colour. Kelly green, tangerine orange and classic cobalt blue (Pantone’s colour of the year) may be having their moment in the ready-to-wear stakes, but a paint box bright handbag is a less intense way to ease her into the trend.
There’s something intrinsically beautiful about a good-fitting watch on a wrist that brings a sense of elegance and poise to any individual. Perhaps it is how the watch compliments your other accessories, or perhaps it is the way the metallic accents highlight key points of your outfit.
No matter what it is, watches have made their mark as a key accessory to spice up any ensemble, and are often the understated statement piece that defines one’s look. After all, a good gift is something that you’d want for yourself as well!
