“The only love that I really believe in is a mother’s love for her children.” In line with the words of fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld, celebrate your mother this Mother’s Day, March 21, and pamper her with an intimate, symbolic or experiential gift. Here’s what we recommend:
Bella “Mother & Child” by Forever Rose: It doesn’t get more symbolic than two roses, representing mother and child, that live forever. Available in 24 shades of real Ecuadorian roses, the blooms from Forever Rose in Dubai can live without the need for water or sunlight when protected in their glass dome. Price: AED1,500.
Lootah Gift Box: Got a traditional mum who loves oriental scents? Lootah in Dubai is offering a customised gift set including perfumes, incenses, fragrant oud and luxury perfumed blended oils and agarwood, introduces special edition customizable gift sets this Mother’s Day.
Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra Open Work Bracelet Watch: An elegant and timeless watch for an elegant and timeless mother. We love the white gold case with round diamonds and white mother-of-pearl dial. But we especially like the intricate and feminine bracelet.
SensAsia Massage: You can’t go wrong with a massage. For Mother’s Day, our go-to spa, SensAsia on The Palm Jumeirah, is offering a free 30 minutes facial with every 60 min massage booked. Price? AED399. Original value: AED699. The best thing about this is you can buy a voucher online and it’ll be delivered to you.
Gianvito Rossi’s Gala Sandals: Make your mum feel young and feminine with these graceful heels by Rossi. The oversized ankle-tie bows wrap around the ankle while the pin-thin stiletto heel provides a leg-lengthening effect. Price: AED2,700 from Level Shoes.
La Perla Petit Macrame Long Night Dress: Silk is always a good idea. Pamper your mum with this pure silk satin embellished night gown with details in stretch silk organza. Price: $1,384.
Estée Lauder The Nighttime Experts: Skincare becomes as important as ever when age starts creeping. Estee Lauder has a great nightly collection that reduces signs of aging. This one is available at Sephora stores across the UAE.
Rhodes W1 Afternoon Tea: Take your mum out for an afternoon tea and a chance for some mother, daughter/son bonding time. The British restaurant, bar and terrace has a bright and lively atmosphere reminiscent of an English garden. Oh, and their food is a-mazing. Afternoon tea is served every Friday and Saturday from 14:30 to 17:00.
