Dear Mom, we love you. So much so, that we’re going to splurge on some amazing gifts for you. See below.
It’s time for mom to trade in her 1990s era “Jessica for Sears” bag, for something more functional, fashionable and current. We recommend this soft, leather Michael Kors Saffiano Crossbody Bag, preferably in orange or brown. Retails for $148 at Holt Renfrew.
You’ll be hard-pressed to find a mom who doesn’t want a diamond ring for Mother’s Day, or any day. These Tiffany Celebration rings are a perfect way to say, Mom, I love you, and I’m sorry I totaled your car last year. The platinum rings range from 0.40 – 2.20 carats of fine Tiffany diamonds, and prices range from $4,300 for the Tiffany Swing ring with diamonds and blue sapphires, to $13,800 for the Victoria ring with diamonds (bottom ring in photo to the left). Available at Tiffany & Co.
We know what you’re thinking: “Seriously, Jugni Style? My mom is 63 and shops at Talbots, not Aritzia.” And that’s what we used to think. Then one of our moms got a yellow, signature TNA Classic Fit Hoodie, and all of her walking friends were asking, “Who got you that nice jacket?” Bonus: Give your mom this, and you’ll finally be the favourite child. Available at TNA and Aritzia stores across North America, for $68.
If you’re mom is like any of our moms, she loves kitchen gadgets. This Bodum Bistro 2-Speed citrus juicer is a gadget we would love to borrow/take on an extended leave, from our mom. Bonus: comes in different colours and with two matching cups. Retails for $49.95 at The Bay, $69.95 at The Green Beanery in Toronto, and $47 – $64 at Amazon.com.
Diane Von Furstenberg Floral Batik Cup and Saucer Set
This set of four beautiful cups and saucers is just what your mom’s china cabinet needed. It’s a serious update to the old Royal Doulton plates and Corningware collected over the years. And who is more chic than Ms. DVF? Available at The Bay for $154.99 per 4 cup/saucer set.
Obakki Graphic Rhombus Silk Scarf
Scarves look great with everything, and this double-sided silk one comes with an added bonus: it’s socially conscious too. How? 150 children in orphanages in Africa were asked 3 questions: What makes you sad? What makes you happy? What makes you afraid? Written on this scarf are their answers. Additional bonus: 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this scarf go directly to helping these kids. Available for $60 online at obakki.com.
Happy Mother’s Day, from Jugni Style to all our mommy readers.
