Seven Gifts For Mother’s Day
No long lunch this year cooked and plated by someone else? No problem – we’ve got Mother’s Day covered with this luxe ‘last minute’ gift guide.
Mother’s Day lands this Sunday (yes, this Sunday) and while many retailers remain closed, it doesn’t mean overlooking mum (also, the mother of your children) when it comes to dishing out something decent.
Cire Trudon La Promeneus
Because there’s scented candles and there’s Cire Trudon – the world’s oldest candle manufacturer founded in 1643. Also, French. La Promeneus was produced in collaboration with French designer Pauline Deltour and further elevates home fragrance as a diffuser set that includes four Cire Trudon fragrances – Abd El Kader, Ernesto, Odalisque and Solis Rex.
Frivole By Van Cleef & Arpels
The delicate flowers of the Frivole ‘blooming’ jewels are a standout of dreamy, reflective design with mirror-polished gold and diamonds. The bracelet of 5 flowers and 53 individual stones is our choice.
Merivale Mother’s Day Champagne and Palings Flowers Delivery
It wouldn’t be a mother’s day gift guide without champagne or flowers – and Sydney’s Merivale and Paling’s Flowers are combining this welcome duo. Available in a range of bundles delivered straight to mum’s door on Saturday, such as Big Mama Chrysanthemums and Double Tulips with a bottle of NV Veuve Clicquot Rosè, Blanc de Blancs, or a margarita making kit.

Tiffany & Co Glassware
What good is champagne without the appropriate glassware? Tiffany & Co has ranges perfect for toasting, such as this flute set made of crystal glass with diamond detailing. Of course, mum may prefer another diamond setting, such as the Tiffany T1 Narrow Diamond Ring in 18-carat rose gold.

Mother’s Day Lunch with Matt Moran & Guy Grossi
While lockdown measures mean no restaurant settings come Sunday, there’s no reason you can’t bring a few favourite dishes to mum’s door with a host of restaurants doing bespoke mother’s day deliveries.
Sydney’s Chiswick is launching takeaway just in time for Mother’s Day, with two feasts centred around the famous lamb shoulder or roast chicken and gravy. Tack on an Elderflower spritz cocktail or a bottle of Veuve Clicquot to make sure it’s a Mother’s day to remember.
Also in Sydney, Bentley is offering a menu of hot smoked salmon with crème fraiche, chives and crostini, a confit lamb shoulder with miso glazed sprouts and kombu butter potatoes plus a pavlova for dessert.
In Melbourne? Grab a Grossi a Casa kit from Guy Grossi’s Florentino and treat mum to pumpkin tortellini with sage and brown butter, chilli and lemon roast chicken and tiramisu to finish.

Dyson is always innovating – its Airwrap styler further proof of such by delivering salon-worthy hair at home. The unique wet to dry styling tool uses jets of air to achieve complete styling versatility from voluminous curls, natural waves and smooth blow-dry finishes. Yes, we tested it!
