7 min read

Mother’s Day is close at hand, and if you haven’t already started, it’s high time to start thinking about how you plan to spoil the special mom in your life. Whether it’s your mother, grandmother, wife, mother-in-law, or a mother figure who has played an important role, this is one of the best times to express your gratitude.

But finding a gift can be quite a challenge, especially if you’re looking for something that’s both thoughtful and useful.

Besides flowers (of which we’ve launched a special collection with Wonderland Botanicals in our Urban Nature Culture vases), we’ve scoured the internet and put together this list of 12 Mother’s Day gift ideas that are sure to make any mom smile. From practical items to indulgent treats, these gifts are uniquely thoughtful for the stylish mom. 

Mother and Child

Mother and Child is an extraordinary book that captures the beauty and complexity of the mother-child relationship. Featuring portraits by photographer Claiborne Swanson Frank, the book showcases 70 iconic families of mothers and children – each one exquisitely photographed to capture the deep emotional bond that exists between them.

But what makes Mother and Child truly remarkable are the accompanying conversations between Swanson Frank and each mother. In these intimate interviews, the mothers reflect on what motherhood means to them, sharing their thoughts, feelings, and experiences with honesty and vulnerability.

And of course, as with Assouline books, this makes for a great coffee table book to display as well.

&Tradition Caret MF1 Portable Table Lamp

Tradition Caret MF1 Portable Table Lamp Dark Burgundy 5

The &Tradition Caret MF1 Portable Table Lamp is a gorgeous gift for any mum looking for a stylish addition to their home. Designed by Matteo Fogale, this modern interpretation of the classic green “banker’s lamps” combines practicality with sleek and elegant design.

Made entirely from lacquered steel, the lamp has a rounded base and a pyramid-shaped top that emits a soft and diffused light. It comes in two contemporary colours – Dark Burgundy and Silk Grey – that you can match with any room decor.

The Caret lamp’s USB-rechargeable battery provides up to 11 hours of light on one charge and has four different brightness levels, making it easy to adjust the light to your needs. Also, it is cordless which makes it easy to carry and place anywhere you need it, whether on a desk or outside.


Rectangle 677 1200x

If your mum is an adventurous foodie, she’ll love the Shrooly mushroom growing system. Imagine being able to harvest your own enoki, maitake, shiitake, or chestnut mushrooms right in your own kitchen! The system is easy to use and comes with an app-controlled capsule system that turns spore-inoculated pods into a variety of easy-to-grow shrooms.

The process is simplified down to just adding water, programming the variety of mushroom pods added using a compatible app, and Shrooly takes care of the rest.

As for the design, it is paired with a neutral-organic mushroom palette and cork feet/knob detailing, making it a handsome addition to any countertop.
