The CF Mother's Day Gift Guide 2021

From small indulgences to extravagant gifts, this is the CF Mother’s Day gift guide.

Whilst we may be celebrating from afar, there are plenty of thoughtful gifts to let her know you are thinking of her. Scroll down for inspiration….


THE MAKE UP PLANNER

This chic Trish McEvoy case resembles a compact Filofax and caters to every woman’s make-up needs. It encompasses favourite products, such as the High Volume Tubular Mascara and Liquid Lip Gloss, amongst perfume, eye liner, finishing powder, eyeshadows, and foundation bases too. It’s the ultimate kit for day-to-night make-up; sleekly organised, she’ll never lose her lip liner again…

THE NEW PORCELAIN

Ralph Lauren Home is our secret go-to for luxurious tablewear. For any lovers of entertaining, this porcelain set – in collaboration with British heritage pottery brand Burleigh – will spark joy. Adorned with an ornate blue floral design it will pep up al fresco tablescapes and is sure to incite admiration from guests.

THE LUXE KNIT

An elegant cashmere sweater will forever be cherished. We love this cashmere-wool blend from purveyors of fine knitwear, Chinti & Parker. In go-with-everything grey, elevated with a rainbow stripe, its fashion-forward whilst also working with existing wardrobe pieces.

THE SPRING TIPPLE

The sun has just started to re-emerge, so we are officially calling the start of Rosé season. Of course, it has to be toasted with Whispering Angel – the most iconic of Provence Rosé. Drinking it is will transport you to sunshine-soaked afternoons on the Côte d’Azur, even if it’s to be enjoyed in the London suburbs.

THE BRACELET

A charm bracelet is timeless, and we love Annoushka's modern take – the Mythology yellow gold bangle, fastened with white sapphire clasps. Personalised to each wearer with an initial, Zodiac, and delicate polished gold heart charm, knowing you can add additional charms for many Mother's Days to come, makes it all the more appealing. 

THE SPRING SCENT

An optimistic, sunny fragrance is the perfect gift in this final stretch of lockdown living, and Jo Malone London has more than delivered with their new Blossoms collection. We are particularly fond of Yellow Hibiscus: a dazzling light floral scent of bright hibiscus, soft rose, and clean white musk. She'll be in love with the bottle even before the first whiff.

THE PYJAMAS

Luxe + Hardy is the luxurious loungewear brand born out of an appreciation of downtime and the simple pleasures of life – something all of us have taken more time to enjoy over the past year. The Seafoam Sleep Set is the ultimare indulgence: with an oversized shirt and matching pyjama bottoms, it's the perfect outfit for curling up with a good book pre-bed, and the uber-comfortable merino wool eye mask encourages a restful night's sleep.

THE FLOWERS

Fresh blooms are forever a welcomed gift and we love Bloom & Wild for its nifty letterbox delivery service. 'The Angie' comprises 25 stems of roses, eucalyptus, lisianthus, and alstroemeria and makes for a beautiful pastel-hued bouquet.

CHAUMET

The Chaumet Jeux de Liens Harmony pendant is a beautifully wearable piece of jewellery imbued with sentiment. In new semi-precious iterations of onyx, malachite, and carnelian, the message is of love and unity. On the reverse, the French jeweller offers complimentary inscriptions for a personalised touch.

THE CANDLE

Bella Freud’s bold slogans are her signature, and this red candle emblazoned with ‘Loving’ sends the perfect message for Mother’s Day. The scent is instantly hypnotic: a heady concoction of tuberose, amber, and sandalwood, which fills the room before it's even lit. Once burned, the vessel makes a smart pot for make-up brushes or pens too.

THE ROBE

A decadent take on loungewear, this silk charmeuse Liberty print robe is suitably luxe for stylish and discerning mothers. The swirling chrysanthemum design pays homage to a heritage Liberty print from 1991 – which we love – and so will she.

THE RADIANCE KIT

111SKIN is as close as one can get to bottling that post-facial glow. This Rose Gold Kit comprises the supermodel-approved Brightening Facial Treatment Masks as well as a Radiance Booster to restore tone, enhance circulation, and leave skin with a covetable radiance at any age.

THE BAG

Our treasured handbags (remember those?!) have been stowed away for months, but now it’s time to get reacquainted. The Aspinal Of London Camera 'A' Bag is the perfect addition to any woman's collection. Lightweight, with external and internal pockets for maximum organisation, it marries style and function perfectly. Available in myriad colours we are particularly fond of 'Olive': a softer alternative to black or brown for spring.

THE AFTERNOON TEA

We're missing languid afternoons spent delicatly nibbling sandwiches and confections at Ham Yard Hotel; thankfully, you can have Afternoon Tea delivered to her door. If she's serious about her afternoon brew, invest in the Smythson Panama Tea Set: complete with fine-bone china, teapot, and all you need for the perfect cuppa.

 

THE EARRINGS

Kiki McDonough's Forget-Me-Not earrings are rather aptly named, given our socially distanced celebrations this year. The subtle green amythest drops can be removed and the small hoops can be worn alone for ultimate versatility.

FOR NEEDLEPOINT LOVERS

Petra Palumbo is normally known for her exquisitely hand-painted glassware but for Mother’s Day Palumbo has joined forces with her mother, Hayat Palumbo, founder of Tapisserie on a needlepoint cushion kit. A perfect gift for any embroidery lovers, offering hours of needlework practice, the finished design looks fit for Marie Antoinette herself.
