It’s that time of year again – the day we celebrate the most important women in our lives. Be it your mum, grandma, aunt, another motherly figure (or even yourself), Mother’s Day is a special time for us to give back to these women and make them feel special. If you’re stuck for a good gift idea, we have you sorted. One gift that can never go wrong is a nice set of pyjamas. Here are our top picks for everyone on your list…
For personalised PJs look no further than Jasmine & Will. Founded by Jasmine Lindsay, the brand’s name comes from her own and her aunty Kaye Williams who inspired her love of sleepwear. Offering monogrammed sets in classic white or navy shades, what could be more special for mum? They also do men’s pyjamas, so keep a look out for Fathers Day.
For the mum who is ethically minded, Cloth & Co is your go to. Founded by mother and daughter duo, Caroline and Daisy Poiner after a few visits to India, their primary goal has been to alleviate poverty through utilising traditional artisans, and providing development and training to those in need. Handmade with certified organic cotton, they are both sustainable and super comfy.
Complete your gift with: Jurlique’s Hand To Hand Luxurious Care Trio. The organic and ethical skincare brand has brought out a range of Mother’s Day sets. Give her three times the thanks with Rose, Lavender and Citrus hand creams.
The Pretty in Print
For the mum who likes prints and soft shades, we suggest Papinelle. Starting at Paddington markets, the brand is now stocked across Australia, New Zealand and the United States. Made from fabrics such as silk and cotton, 90% of the collection is made from natural fibres. For something extra, grab her one of their fun eye masks or a new pair of slippers.
Complete your gift with: Edible Beauty’s Tea Jar No.3 Sleeping Beauty. This calming and soothing tea contains Oat Seed, Lemon Verbena and Chamomile flower blossoms to help her catch the best Z’s.
So French, so chic…for the mum who loves all things Parisian, treat her (or just treat yourself!) to some Simone Pérèle. Made with silk and sold as separates, you can mix and match tops, bottoms and colour ways according to preference. They are giving out free bespoke Mother’s Day cards illustrated by artist Ana Castro, with all purchases up until Mother’s Day – so that’s one less thing to worry about!
Complete your gift with: Estée Lauder’s Modern Muse EDP made for inspirational women like your mum. This French fragrance combines sparkling jasmine and sleek wood accords – a scent she will love.
The Day to Night
Or night to day? For the mum who used to drop you off at school still in her pyjamas, Project REM is the gift for her. Sleepwear that doubles as daywear, these cool PJs come in a whole host of fun prints, or just your classic stripe and basic colours. With every purchase made, Project REM gives basic sanitary products to disadvantaged and homeless women too, so mum won’t be the only woman receiving a gift.
Complete your gift with: Essie’s Treat Love and Colour. Both a nail care and colour, this nail lacquer contains strengthening ingredients like collagen and camellia extract. Treat your mum’s nails this Mother’s Day!
For the mum who loves luxury, Ginia is our top pick. Stocked worldwide, these silk sets are the ultimate in elegance and sophistication. Another brand, blurring the lines between sleep and daywear, this is a gift you won’t feel guilty about splurging on – after all she’s worth it.
Complete your gift with: Oribe’s Masque for Beautiful Color. This luxe conditioning masque not only helps to maintain colour but also protects against frizz and UV filters. If your mum loves to pamper her hair, then this is the product for her!
