It should be easy, figuring out what to get someone you have literally known all your life. Yet, here we are, trying to find the best of the best for Mother’s Day.

Breakfast-in-bed may be the no-brainer solution, but we suggest an additional gift to really let her know how truly special she is. 


1. Ember Mug² Coffee Mug

Ah yes, one of the best luxuries in life: drinking tea or coffee at the perfect temperature, at all times. 

Bid a permanent farewell to cold coffee with the Ember Mug² Coffee Mug. This gizmo right here allows your mother to set her preferred drink temperature, so she can enjoy every single drop of the brew exactly how she likes it. 

The smart mug comes with an Ember app that gives its users the ability to customise presets for their favourite drinks. She can even set a timer for perfectly steeped tea. The app will send a notification on her phone when her brew is ready for a sip. Drinks will stay at a constant temperature for one and a half hours (thanks to the battery) or for the day with the charging coaster. 

How’s that for an upgrade to the ‘World’s Best Mum’ mugs?

Free your mother from the chains that are charging cables.

With this sleek wireless charger, she can charge three of her gadgets at once, saving her precious time. It’s engineered to be Qi-compatible, allowing her to charge phones, tablets and other accessories with Qi technology. Be sure to check for compatibility, although we’re sure that most devices are equipped with the Qi technology. 

The best part about this? That it’s not a clunky piece of technology. This stylish charging dock seamlessly blends into a nightstand or the home office. 


3. Fitbit Versa 3

Speaking of tech, smart watches are the way to go for mothers on-the-go. I mean, who has time to check their phones anymore?

Enter Fitbit Versa 3. The watch conveniently notifies its user of any calls, texts and app notifications so your mother won’t miss a beat, even when her phone is away. 

Compared to the previous iteration of the Fitbit Versa watch, the Versa 3 integrates a GPS feature, meaning that the watch will no longer depend on the phone’s location to track the whereabouts of its user. It makes for an apt Mother’s Day gift for mothers who enjoy a good run. The watch tracks heart rate, active zones, distance travelled, floors climbed and calories burned. 

Even if she’s not a runner, the watch is an ideal gift so she can track her daily activities. 


4. Function of Beauty Custom Hair Care Regimen

Just like you, your mother is one in a million. And just like you, she too has unique hair goals. 

Function of Beauty offers to create fully customisable hair products to attend to any and every hair need. You get full control of what goes into the mix, down to the colour and scent of the shampoo and conditioner. This is achieved through a quiz on their website

This might be tricky, but that’s the fun of it too. Sneak the handful of questions into your conversation and there you have it, your mother’s personal blend, in her favourite colour, with her favourite scent, and her name right on the bottle too. 

Every formula is created sulfate- and paraben-free, vegan and cruelty free. You can opt to go silicone-free, dye-free, and fragrance-free too!


5. Lush Mother of Pearl Bath Bomb

Mothers everywhere could use a relaxing bath, even on her best days. 

Scented with vanilla, rosehip oil and ylang-ylang, this limited-edition pearlescent sphere has the power to calm and centre the mind. Throw the Mother of Pearl bath bomb into a cozy warm bath and watch it transform into a shimmery and milky water wonderland. 

Once she’s done with the bath, she’ll step out of the bath one well-moisturised matriarch, thanks to the illipe butter, which shares the same effect as shea butter.  


6. Le Labo Baie 19

While perfume can be a highly personal item, we believe that Le Labo Baie 19 is a no-fail option. 

This aromatic green fragrance is composed of notes such as patchouli, musk and juniper berries. The result? A heady and invigorating smell of petrichor—that aquatic and earthy smell released after a good rain. It’s a scent that every human being can appreciate, and your mother will too.
