The Ultimate gift guide for Desi Mums

When you need the mother of all presents on 31st March

ARTICLE BY : Abha Shah


Newsflash, Mother’s Day is fast approaching. For those of you who had forgotten – shame, shame! – this year it falls on 31st March.

While we know you do your best to appreciate your mum year round, Mothering Sunday is an extra chance to show the most important lady in your life just how much she means to you.

After all, she’s been by your side for all the major milestones; from kissing you goodbye on the first day of school, celebrating your first job and now, helping you prepare for the biggest day of your life – she’s truly one in a million.

Whether you want to spoil her with a luxe treat or would prefer ideas for much needed mother-daughter time, our gift guide will provide the perfect inspo.

We’re not talking about just mums, either. Consider a gift for all the strong mother figures in your life; aunts, grandmothers and future mothers-in-law (it can’t hurt to rack up the brownie points).

We’re sure they’ll be as delighted by a thoughtful present come 31st March too.

Jo Malone London

A light, seasonal spring gift, Jo Malone has released an exclusive line of five fragrances inspired by the wild and wonderful British canals and countryside. Featuring unusual ingredients and notes, each of the five scents offers a different twist. We’re partial to the Hemlock & Bergamot Cologne, powdery at first, followed by a burst of mimosa, but we’re sure you’ll find something perfect for her in the collection. You could always push the boat out and gift more than one, and receive a gorgeous limited edition tin with compliments from the brand.

Choose from three sets, Classic 400, Organic Classic 400 and Super Luxe 600 - she's sure to love any option.
