Luxuria Lifestyle’s Danielle Tobin compiles a Mother’s Day Gift Guide
Mother’s day is on this upcoming Sunday, the 19th, and is a day where you can spoil your mums/ mother figures for all they do for us. Mums are superheroes, and they deserve a day full of indulgence and spoiling; for all their hard work and efforts. I have compiled a list of treats to inspire your Mother’s day gift-giving; enjoy shopping!
For the mum who loves a list – The Lovendu planner, £20
A planner is one of the best organisation tools and is especially good for improving mental health. Regularly checking in on your mental health can do wonders for your overall stress levels helping to alleviate those symptoms of anxiety and overwhelm. This well-being journal makes the perfect gift for those mums who enjoy journalling to keep themselves organised and accountable. There is an exercise tracker, goal setting, grounding exercises, mood trackers and lots more to help keep those negative feelings at bay! Your mum will appreciate the thought and sentiment that’s gone into this beautifully designed product and something that she’ll enjoy the benefits of daily.
For the mum who loves her luxuries – The white company waffle robe, £70
This white waffle robe is the perfect must-have for those summer months so your fluffy, cosy dressing gown can have a day off. This stunning robe has lightweight material, waffle cotton on the outside and a towelling material on the inside, perfect for absorbing excess water after a shower. These robes are especially popular as they look like a luxury hotel robe giving off that luxury staycation vibe, except you, can wear them around the house. If you’re struggling with what to order, you can’t go wrong with a crisp-white robe from one of the best luxury retailers, The White Company, known for their high-quality luxury products. Mum deserves it!
Notes: Regular fit, 100% Cotton, Machine washable

For mums with a sweet tooth – Janice Wong Chocolates, £25
When I came across Janice Wong chocolates online, I was so excited by how luxurious and fancy they looked; I knew they’d make the perfect gift for Mother’s day. The chocolates come in an elegant-square box; you can tell by the packaging that they look super expensive. The design of each of the nine chocolates looks like edible artwork, each with its own personal design, colour, shape and size; they look way too pretty to eat. These chocolates are the perfect thoughtful gift for those mums who have a sweet tooth and enjoy the finer things in life. With all their beautiful vibrant colours, sleek packaging and innovative flavours, there’s a chocolate for every mood. The unique flavours that caught my attention when ordering was the Banana palm sugar, Ginger flower and Makrut lime caramel; they all sound so delicious.
For the mums who love to bake-Biscuiteers, Emma Bridgewater Collection, £48
This Time-for-tea biscuit tin is a new collection designed by the talented homeware designer; Emma Bridgewater. The biscuits are blue, green and yellow and look perfect for spring. Inside the tin are 12 hand-illustrated biscuits designed with love and inspired by her beautiful pottery designs. Pair these sweet treats with yellow daffodils and a mug of hot tea, and enjoy the lemon-tasting biscuits at your leisure. Additionally, the hand-illustrated biscuit tin would make a lovely keepsake. Biscuiteers have also got a very special Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea which will be available at their two venues, Belgravia and Notting Hill. It will be £55.50 per person with a glass of Prosecco. If you’d like to add the DIY icing experience for £68, I would recommend doing that; it’s super fun, and you get to keep what you design!
For the mums who need a good night’s sleep – Happy Mammoth deep sleep mode, £54
Whenever you ask a mum what they’d want more than anything for Mother’s Day, a popular answer is a “good night’s sleep”; these Happy Mammoth sleep capsules sound like the ideal gift for those who need that uninterrupted sleep at night. These capsules support 7-9 hours of unbroken sleep, eliminate poor sleep triggers, boost your melatonin by 71% for even deeper sleep and speed up the falling asleep process by 53%. The best part about them is they are 100% natural, have no side effects and are non-habit forming. Take three per evening, 30 minutes before you go to bed, for the best outcome.
For the chocoholics – Montezuma’s Chocolate, from £2.99
Only the best, for the best! Montezuma chocolate is an award-winning British brand of luxury-chocolate treats that will tickle your tastebuds with incredibly unique flavour combos.
Here are some of the flavour combos you can choose from:
Black Forest – Dark chocolate with cherry
Happiness – Milk chocolate with salted caramel hazelnuts
Sea dog – Dark chocolate with lime and sea salt
Chilli bonkers – Dark chocolate with chilli
I have tried and tested them myself, and they taste unbelievable. They would make the best gift for those adventurous with their chocolate choices and who like trying innovative flavours.
Montezuma also has a range of chocolate buttons, truffle bites, gift boxes, minibars, and vegan and organic chocolate, something for everyone!
For the lash queens – Wanderlash mascara, £28
Wanderlash is like a push-up bra version of mascara for your eyelashes. Forget the falsies and the lash lifts; with this one product, you can achieve fuller, longer lashes with the swipe of the wand! It contains hemp extract to condition and hydrate your lashes, Jojoba and blackcurrant to promote lash growth and thickness. The mascara also remains free from eye-disrupting ingredients and is fragrance-free. The concept of the product is in a navy box with a gold typeface and looks super sleek to receive as a gift. Every sale goes towards supporting mental health.
For the cosy night in – Jim Jam The Label – Neon Star Dressing Gown, £23.50
Jim Jam The Label is the go-to luxury sleepwear and nightwear brand, with endless options to look and feel your best self in timeless designs; made with the softest fabrics. Your mum deserves to be spoiled with this super soft and cosy Neon star dressing gown to snuggle up with whilst having an at-home movie night on the sofa. This robe was designed to have a chic look, something a little more fun than the usual robe, and made to keep you cosy and snug. Pair with hot chocolate, a romantic comedy and a mountain of popcorn. The robe is midi-length, with a hood, pockets and a belt to secure; once you put it on, you’ll never want to take it off!
For the beauty enthusiasts – The OK beauty box, £55
This female founder’s beauty box is the perfect gift for those who love surprises. I love to gift beauty boxes for special occasions because you get to try different products and brands that you might not have tried before. This Ok beauty box is only £55 and has a total value of £275, so you get to try 12 must-have products for a fraction of the price. One of the products inside is a ‘Rodial, Pink Diamond serum’ worth £125! Other products you can expect from this beauty box are from other empowering women’s brands, such as Balance Me, Emma Hardie and Neom. These beauty boxes are such good value for money, and 10% of the box sales go to The Charity Refuge, an organisation that empowers women to live without fear and violence.
