Although we’re heading towards normality once more, there’s no denying that the past year has been hard for all of us, meaning there’s never been a better time to truly show our mothers how much we care. Whether you’re buying for a mom-to-be, your grandmother, a stepmom or just a little treat for yourself, all mothers deserve to be spoilt. Our luxury Mother’s Day Gift Guide features a range of indulgent brands and items that are guaranteed to put a smile on her (or your!) face – from personalized champagne bottles and ethical jewelry to eco skincare and silk nightwear.
Ethical Kind, Silk Pajamas
[Pictured above] There is little more indulgent than a pair of deliciously soft silk pajamas but add in a host of impressive eco-credentials and you’ve got the perfect luxury Mother’s Day gift. Ethical Kind uses only organic peace silk which is produced from natural cocoons without sacrificing animal life, ensuring its cruelty-free status. In addition to being organically and sustainably farmed, organic peace silk is free from harmful toxins and pesticides – and better yet, the material has natural temperature regulating qualities for a restful night’s sleep, as all moms deserve.
