marie claire Editors Share Their Top Gifting Picks For Mother’s Day

Mum’s the word

Mums are notorious for putting everyone else’s needs above their own, so now is the time to purchase her that bracelet/candle/skin treatment she’s been dreaming about and spoil her this Mother’s Day. Stuck for ideas? Then reflect on past conversations—is there something on her wish list that she hasn’t had a chance to do or buy for herself? Still at a loss? Then steal our ideas! 

Here, the marie claire team share the items they’ll be gifting this Mother’s Day.

Dyson Airwrap

Editor (Digital), Melissa Mason

“My mum loves a good hair tool, especially anything that promises easier waves and body. She’s been eyeing off the Dyson Airwrap for over a year, and they’re offering a special gift edition for Mother’s Day, so I’ll likely get her that.”

Dyson Airwrap Complete, $799 at Dyson.

Pandora Two-tone Family Tree & Heart Dangle Charm

Senior Commercial Editor, Kate Racovolis  

“My mum never leaves the house without jewellery. She’s the kind of person whose outfit isn’t complete without a necklace, earrings, braceletor all three. This year, I’ll be saying ‘thank you’ with a sparkling, symbolic charm from Pandora. The Two-tone Family Tree & Heart Dangle Charm is from the brand’s 2021 Mother’s Day Collection and carries both an engraved silver heart and a cute 14k gold family tree. Cute? Tick. Meaningful? Also tick. And mum, if you’re reading this, please act surprised when May 9 rolls around.”

Pandora Two-Tone Family Tree & Heart Dangle Charm, $99 at Pandora; Pandora Moments Snake Chain Bracelet, $89 at Pandora.

Jo Malone London White Jasmine & Mint Cologne

Digital Content Producer, Diandra Malivindi

“This Mother’s Day, I’m definitely spoiling Mum with a signature scent from Jo Malone. As a fragrance lover, she’s always on the hunt for her next aromatic must-have, so it’s a no-brainer! Plus, the bottles can even be engraved to make Mum feel extra super special!”

Jo Malone London White Jasmine & Mint Cologne, $206 for 100ml at Jo Malone London.

SELF by The Parlour Room

Senior Content Producer, Grace Back

“I plan on spoiling mum in a way she wouldn’t normally, sending her to a treatment at SELF by The Parlour Room. I know she’s been under a lot of stress lately, and gifting her something I know she would love, but would never purchase for herself, always puts a big smile on both our faces!”

The Signature Facial, $200 at SELF by The Parlour Room.

Louis Vuitton Sarah Wallet

Senior Content Producer, Sukriti Wahi

“This Mother’s Day, I want to make her present personal—literally! I’m looking at getting her a set of chic monogrammed accessories for a gift that feels both timeless and unique.”

Pandora Rose Petals Stud Earrings

Fashion Editor, Monica Russell

“I always think the best presents are the ones you can wear again and again. I’ll be gifting these stud earrings to my mum this Mother’s Day because I know they’re something she’ll cherish. The rose petal design is classic yet contemporary and simple enough to wear every day.”

Pandora Rose Petals Stud Earrings, $59 at Pandora.
