Mother’s Day is here again, and for many sons and daughters it’s time to buy a last-minute bouquet of her favourite flowers and maybe some chocolates to go with them. If you want to treat your mother to something special this year and move away from the standard flowers + chocolates combination, you may be after some ideas. Here at Hemingway Tailors, we’ve put together a short list of Mother’s Day gift ideas for stylish mums – including a special present from Hemingway…
Given the endless selection of jewellery available to buy on the high street and online, it may seem almost impossible to make the right choice. You should know your mum’s taste reasonably well, but when it comes to gifts you probably shouldn’t buy the same old pearl studs that she seems to wear every day. Instead, consider opting for a statement piece, or something more personal.
Statement pieces are big, bold and often unique. Search for a piece made out of her favourite metal or containing her favourite precious stones – her birthstone is also a good place to start if you’re completely lost. Scour sites such as Not on the High Street and Etsy to find something unique. These websites are also great places to visit if you’d like to give her a personalised piece of jewellery or jewellery set. Current jewellery trends include ‘70s-style retro jewellery, cuffs and chokers.
If your mum isn’t really a jewellery person and instead values the practicality and style of a well-crafted clutch or wallet, Mother’s Day is the perfect time to treat her to one. Opt for high quality leather products that won’t start showing signs of wear and tear for many years and will weather fashion trends, remaining timeless. Satchels, totes, messenger bags and makeup bags can all be great gifts, as long as they’re well made and reflect her personal style.
Alternatively, scarves and shawls are welcome gifts at any time of year. A light silk scarf can be worn in many different ways throughout the year, while a luxurious cashmere scarf is also a fantastic, long-lasting gift.
A tailored suit
The unbeatable fit of a tailored suit is the ideal present for almost every fashionable mum – but having her attend several consultations and fittings isn’t going to make it much of a surprise. That’s why Hemingway Tailors offer a suit in a box (or shirt in a box) service. Choose a fabric and lining for the recipient’s suit, and we’ll deliver samples of the material to them, neatly packaged in a small box with the promise of further fittings and the complete suit! Don’t worry if you’re not sure which fabric they’d like – they can choose to change it at their first consultation.
We can craft made-to-measure suits that are perfect for whatever occasion you’d like – from winter weddings to important business meetings or a day at the races. Give us a call or fill out an online enquiry form if you’d like to gift your mum a tailored suit this Mother’s Day.
