Uptown Girl: Luxe Mother’s Day Gift Ideas


Is your mom a ‘real lady’ to quote the Spice Girls (oh yes)? Then she’ll certainly love one of these decadent gift ideas…let’s go!

Saturn Wine Glasses

Saturn Wine Glasses – $97.07 for a Set of Two
If ‘wine o’clock’ is part of mom’s routine, treat her to improved glassware! These stunning blown glass wine glasses are designed to be the opposite of tipsy; they can rest standing up but if you accidentally knock one over, it’ll keep your precious vino from spilling a drop. Made in the Czech Republic by master craftsmen, all that’s missing is a bottle of wine – and some quality mother / child time.

Columbia Outdry Jacket

Columbia OutDry Extreme ECO Jacket – $279.99
If mom’s an outdoorsy type, keep her outfitted for the elements this summer with a high-performance, eco-friendly, waterproof jacket from Columbia. To hone in on that waterproof element for a sec, what makes this jacket extra special is the fact it’s made without perfluorinated compounds (PFCs), a water-repellant synthetic compound that represents serious ecological issues owing to its bio-accumulative nature. After years of development, the folks at Columbia have got an alternative to PFCs figured out. To up the eco factor this 100% recycled jacket is made from plastic bottles and by keeping it dye-free, is also saves gallons of water. Way smart – and worth the price tag!

Links of London ‘Sweetie’ Bracelets – From $245
Talk about a gift that keeps on giving. Links of London’s super cool bracelets are designed to become keepsakes as you continually evolve them with new beads and charms. Start with your choice of bracelet thickness and accent colours (like rose gold, swoon), then add custom additions like a zodiac charm, alphabet charm, or pave rondelle beads.

Express Bag

Scarf Embellished Mini Barrel Satchel – $59.90 @ Express
Brighten up mom’s accessories with a chic little satchel from Express. Accented with a contrasting patterned scarf, this go-anywhere bag will soon become mom’s fave tote. Bonus points for the handy external zips and the adjustable strap to carry as a handbag or shoulder bag. Not in love with the cheery sugar melon colour above? It also comes in camel and pale blue.

Drake General Store Amethyst Box

Amethyst Box – $62 @ Drake General Store
How pretty is this? A little bit new age crystal, a little bit classic marble, this stunning piece is a gorgeous accent for mom’s dresser or vanity – but also serves a practical purpose. Stash some of her favourite things inside, whether it’s a bar of gourmet chocolate or a sparkly bracelet from a local boutique. There’s also a small version if you’re on a tighter budget!

ECCO Devine Moc Penny Loafer

ECCO Devine Moc Penny Loafer – $180
This classic shoe style is given brand new life when rendered in a shiny pale gold hue. Rock them with dark denims on the weekend or a pair of trousers for work and look instantly polished. Made from luxe leather and designed to encourage air circulation for more comfort (and less smell), the rubber outsole will ensure mom can trot around town for hours and still feel light on her feet.
