Jo Malone also does the most beautiful gift boxes and packaging. Your mum will be over the moon!
ps : Lunch at Amano, followed by fragrance combining at Jo Malone London, sounds pretty amazing?!
30ml fragrances NZ $115 each (combine 2 fragrances)
5. SLIP pure silk EYE MASK
Slip™ pure silk pillowcases and sleep masks are made with the highest grade (6A) long fiber mulberry silk, with a thickness of 22 momme and enforce the strictest quality guidelines, including non-toxic dyes. It helps with ant-sleep creases and ant-ageing by not absorbing all the skin products. It's super soft and feels extremely luxurious. They also (stamp) monogram the silk masks, we think would be a great present for mum!
Silk Eye Mask, AUD $45 + $10 Monogram
6. NOVELTY DESK PLATE
This one’s for the bosslady mum out there. While it's not entirely customisable, there are quite a few desk plates from Third Drawer Down for you to choose from. You know your mum better than anyone else, so find her something that will make her giggle on a stressful day.
Third Drawer Down, AUD $10 - $42
7. Laing Home Monogrammed Pajamas
“A little luxury everyday” is the line in Laing Home’s website, and we couldn’t agree more. Everyone needs that little luxury injected to their daily routine, and what better way than by wearing their luxurious line of monogrammed pajamas?! Ever mum deserves a Laing Home monogrammed set. This home-grown brand is serving some serious sleepwear envy, and we’re obsessed. They offer complimentary monogramming with purchase, you can either put your mum's initials or name on her set.
Tilda Pure Cotton Set, NZ $265
Seeing the reaction on mum's face makes it all worth it! And we hope our little list helps make your mum smile.
