Our top gifts for moms and moms-to-be
Who deserves a gift more than a mom (or soon-to-be mama)? Nobody, that’s who.
There’s not a mama alive who wouldn’t appreciate a little luxury in their lives – something that allows them to rest and relax, connect with themselves, and maybe even get a good night’s sleep. Here are our picks.
There’s something so utterly luxurious about a pair of beautifully-cut, finely-made pyjamas. As mamas, we tend to put our own bedtime on the backburner, so reclaiming our own precious downtime with a pair of gorgeous, organic cotton PJs like these feels wonderfully indulgent.
We love Jem & Bea for their stylish, practical diaper bags – but did you know they also made beautiful clutches? This one, made of 100 percent leopard-printed calf hair, is the kind of thing you can toss in your regular handbag to stash necessities (lipstick, pens and so on) or a carry-all you can use to accessorise a fabulous black dress when date night finally rolls around. This cute clutch is also available in leather in a range of cool colors.
When you’re a new mama, a little bit of luxury goes a very long way. Enter the HATCH to Hospital set, packed with HATCH’s signature pieces (underwear, robe, nightgown and socks) in soft, supple bamboo that’s just made for those early days of snuggling.
The seamless built-in belly support band alleviates baby weight, decreases pressure on the pelvic floor, and reduces abdominal and back pain. It’s an absolute essential for all mama to be’s!
For the pet mama who has everything… except a sweater emblazoned with an embroidered illustration of her pooch (or cat. Or rabbit. Or goldfish). A luxe but incredibly personal gift, this will be treasured forever.
From sleeping to lounging to vacationing, you can take this relaxed fit sleep shirt by Skin will quickly become mama’s favorite.
Choose her own name or that of her children and bask in the reflected glory of this truly beautiful, timeless namesake necklace. Choose from 18K yellow, rose or white gold.
This cotton-silk blend kimono is inspired by the modernity at the heart of Japanese style, and is as perfect for dressing up a pair of jeans and flats as it is for wearing in the comfort of your own home.
With classic hand-drawn designs, Parker Thatch products are unique and timeless. Customize a cotton-canvas clutch for your mama friend (perfect for stashing cosmetics or other essentials) and prepare to be thanked every time she can easily reach for her blush brush or ballpoint.
Fact: running after kids is hard work. Fact: running after kids with a giant bag over your shoulder is the absolute worst. Which is why we’re eternally grateful for the Parker Thatch bum bag, a super-easy, incredibly comfortable alternative to the shoulder bag. Big enough to store your essentials, this makes school drop-offs, park visits and travel a breeze. Bonus: you can customize with your monogram!
Do we really need to explain the allure of an eye mask to a fellow mama? Thought not.
Perfect for travel, or for those early days with a newborn when you seem to leave the house with everything but the kitchen sink, this heavy-duty canvas bag is stylish to boot. Customize yours with a drawing from your favorite little artist and transform it into a keepsake.
Made from 100 percent cotton that allows your body to breathe while it’s resting, these holiday-themed pyjamas are cute enough to wear to the breakfast table and cosy enough to rest in all night long.
For the mama-to-be who needs a great hospital bag, this is it. Made of durable canvas and with 16 pockets for easy storage, this will easily transform into a diaper bag, then a travel tote. In other words, it works (almost) as hard as you do.
Soft, plush and playful, these slippers are an absolute must-have!
