Six Stylish Mother’s Day Gift Ideas 

Six Stylish Mother’s Day Gift Ideas 
Scroll

The lead up to Mother’s Day looks and feels different for everyone. Some will be planning long family lunches (or trying not to burn breakfast in bed). Some will be reflecting on what the day has come to represent — a new beginning, a longing or a loss. And then there are those who are frantically trying to work out what to get their mothers, mentors and mother figures. Whether she’s impossible to buy for or she’d be happy with a handwritten card, these heartfelt and stylish offerings will take the second-guessing out of Mother’s Day gift shopping.

 

A home scent

Candles and room sprays are quintessential Mother’s Day gifts. As a child, you’d be forgiven for selecting a sickly sweet candle from your school Mother’s Day gift shop with your pocket money. But this category has come a long way (and so has your gift-giving!), and a home scent can be a personal gesture that she’ll enjoy again and again. Look for a scented candle or spray in a simple glass vessel that looks beautiful when displayed. And when choosing a scent, if in doubt opt for something on the natural or fresh side — nothing too overpowering. 

Table & bed linens

Is your mum the hostess with the most-est, or a lady of leisure who loves a Sunday spent in bed with the newspaper? Play to her strengths and gift her some brand new bedding or fresh table linens from the Assembly Label Lifestore. Our bedding and napery collections are crafted from luxurious 100% French flax linen, and we stock everything from napkins, aprons and table cloths to complete bed linen sets. It’s the sort of gift that’s practical, but still a pleasure to receive.

An artwork

If you’re going all-out this Mother’s Day, why not consider a piece of art? Before you buy, do some research into what sort of art she likes. How does she decorate her home? What art does she already own? Ask the people who know her best, or simply ask her directly — she’s sure to appreciate your interest. Then, have a look around small local galleries and check out the artists they represent. We also recommend taking a look at the Australian artists featured on the Assembly Label Journal — many have artworks available ranging in size, style and price. And if an original artwork is not within your budget, don’t worry! Lots of artists produce art prints, which are quality reproductions, and these are often available at a more attainable price.

Luxurious knitwear

One thing many mums seem to have in common is an appreciation for beautiful fabrics. They understand the value of a Merino wool jumper, and they get what makes cashmere so special. The Assembly Label winter collection includes a premium range of knitwear that you and the women in your life will love. Our knitwear offering includes super warm alpaca and wool blends, a cotton cashmere set that’s sought-after every year, wrap-sized scarves and 100% cashmere sweaters that look and feel incredibly luxurious. She’ll be sure to wear it all season.

A book (or two)

Mothers who happen to be avid readers will always appreciate the gift of a great book. There are so many ways you can approach this — curate a pack of new releases that she can share and discuss with friends, gift her a gorgeous coffee table book on her favourite photographer, artist or designer, or search the non-fiction section for new titles on topics that interest her. Peruse the shelves of your local bookshop or visit an Assembly Label store where you’ll find an edit of design magazines and tomes.

A staycation

Most mums will tell you that what they really want for Mother’s Day is a few hours of rest and relaxation and a little bit of breathing space. So if your budget allows, book her a city staycation at a boutique hotel where she can catch up on some self care (order room service in a bathrobe). Need inspiration? There’s the new Ace Hotel in Sydney, Moss Hotel in Hobart, The Calile in Brisbane, COMO The Treasury in Perth, Zagame’s House in Melbourne, Ovolo Nishi in Canberra and Marion Hotel in Adelaide.
