Mother’s Day Gift Guide
If anyone deserves a gift, it’s your mother
There’s nothing we can think of that’s more precious than the woman who gave you life. So this Mother’s Day, show your mom how precious and important she is to you by gifting her something you know would make her happy. Here is a list of gift options that we put together for the occasion: 1. A pearl necklace: In our eyes, this is the perfect gift for any mother. Pearls are a timeless and classic choice that fit any woman with any style at any age. We recommend G.B. Jewellers in Gold and Diamond Park because they’re honest with their quality and can give you a very good deal. We estimate a starting price for a short pearl necklace at around $500 (AED 1,800). 2. Lifelong Roses: These are not just any roses. Your mom would be impressed by French brand Maison Des Fleurs’ lifelong roses, which live up to a few weeks. While they’re a bit pricey - $70 (AED 250) per flower – the brand also sells regular flowers for lower prices. However, a 16-piece box of life-long roses is $360 (AED 1,380). We say it’s worth it if she’s really into flowers! 3. Cleopatra Spa: In celebration of Mother’s Day, Cleopatra Spa and Wellness at Raffles hotel Dubai is offering its signature treatment, Pure Royal Indulgence, for three hours at a rate of $210 (AED 765). The treatment includes a massage, a milk bath, exfoliation, and a facial amongst other treatments. The promotion is valid until March 31st. 4. Sleepwear: We don’t know about you, but we find nightwear a great gift idea for mothers because it reminds them that they need to pamper themselves and wear beautiful pieces even when they’re at home. We love this La Perla Freesia Robe for its lace sleeves and silky appearance. We recommend getting a piece with a twist, like a sheer back or thigh slit. 5. Jimmy Choo: These black lace pointy toe pumps from Jimmy Choo are a favourite of ours. Why? They suit any woman at any age, and we’re sure your mother would love them. We personally like the combination of the attractive sheer lace material and mature pointy toe. They’re priced at $620 (AED 2250) in Harvey Nichols. 6. Chanel earrings: We love the brand’s earrings because they’re not as pricey as the rest of their jewellery and at the same time act as a great gift! They’re usually made in classic styles and packaged in small cute boxes. These clip-on resin pearl earrings are what we’d go for. We’re not sure about their price but we’re guessing it’s around $550 (AED 2,000). 7. Stella McCartney bag: This bag goes well with anything due to its nude colour. It’s also classy but a little bit edgy thanks to its metal lining. It can be used as a mini bag, a clutch, or a satchel. Can you think of a better bag for Mother’s Day? It priced at $735 (AED 2,700) in Bloomingdales. 8. A pampering session at the salon: This one’s a great choice is you want a more affordable spa package for Mother’s Day. UAE-based beauty salon chain Tips and Toes is offering a Swedish or Balinese full body massage, express mani/pedi, GlamGlow mini facial, and a blow dry or 30 minute foot reflexology for $130 (AED 475). 9. Perfume: Perfumes are a last minute gift options for anyone who’s lost for time (or money). Valentino’s latest scent POUDRE is feminine and easy on the nose. It has notes of iris, tuberose, and sandalwood. The 80ML bottle is sold for AED 485 at Paris Gallery.
