Welp, we had a good run, gents. It’s been a whole three months since you last had to agonize over finding just the right present for the lady in your life. But now Mother’s Day is upon us, which means that agony is back and worse than ever: not only do you need to find a spectacular gift for the mother of your children, you’ve got to get something just as good for your mom, too. Calm your frazzled nerves, though, because we’re here to help. Let’s get into it, shall we?
The Perfect Giant Bag
How many times have you asked your wife to hold a few things so your trousers won’t look bulky? It’s time to pay her back for it…and secretly ensure that there will always be room for your George Constanza wallet.
A Relaxing Spa-Like Diffuser
The Ellia Reflect Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser helps to reduce stress, boost mental clarity and soothe the body and mind. Doesn’t that sound like something your tireless mom deserves to have in her life?
An Actual Spa Day
We know you probably can’t get through the day without the ladies in your life, but more than likely they wouldn’t mind some time away. Send them to the Hammam Spa at the Shangri-La for a traditional Turkish bath and they’ll feel like they’ve been away for days. Maybe they even missed you.
Hammam Spa, from $145
A Ring That Spells It Out
Have trouble expressing your emotions? Let a little jewellery from Louis Vuitton do it for you. Trust us, this is a foolproof plan.
Louis Vuitton, $425
The Last Leather Jacket She’ll Ever Need
But we can’t promise it’ll be the last one she buys. It will, however, outlast and outperform any leather jacket she has ever or will ever wear.
Marc Cain, price upon request
A Pair of Shoes She Can Wear Anywhere
Shoes can be a risky buy for a woman. Feel confident in the Mara mule from Tiger of Sweden. The style is super trendy at the moment and that thick heel means she’ll actually be comfortable in them. Quite the magic trick.
Tiger of Sweden, $370
Her New Favourite Perfume
With fresh floral notes and the subtle scent of a garden after the rain, the My Burberry Eau de Parfum will soon be her go-to. Have her initials engraved on the bottle to make it a little extra special.
The Secret to Beautiful Skin
Skincare can be a tricky subject to broach, especially when something calls itself a nighttime fix. Make sure to mention that the reviews for the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum are off the charts and, hey, you just want her to have the best.
Estee Lauder, from $65
A Stunning Statement Necklace
A little something sparkly is always a good bet for Mother’s Day, and this rhinestone necklace from Max Mara will look dynamite at her favourite restaurant that you totally made reservations for.

Everything She Needs to Pamper Herself
If the lady in your life can’t make it to the Turkish spa, get her all the necessary things to have her own luxurious bath time. Consonant’s ‘Busy Mom’ kit comes with a mask, three bath bombs and a 12-hour candle. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself alone for dinner.
