Mother's Day Gifts: The Luxury Edit

Fragrance by YSL
Fragrance by Yves Saint Laurent, $239 at David Jones

For mums with an unapologetic love for life’s finer things, a store bought card and lavender candle is unlikely to cut it on Mother’s Day. Which is absolutely fine; Mother’s Day gifts are one of few opportunities to truly splurge on the women in our lives so caution should be duly thrown to the wind when it comes to buying presents.

Here is our curated edit of the best-of-the-best for your mum. No expense spared – we’re talking the most sumptuous cashmere, luxurious face creams and top-of-the-range crystal. Want something more personal? The David Jones personal shopping service will select a range of personalised options for you to choose from instore.

If you were to define the word luxury with a single product, it would be Crème De La Mer. A potent face cream that feels a little like cashmere for your skin (Gwyneth Paltrow, Beyoncé and J.Lo are all fans), this artisanal product is guaranteed to win a fair few brownie points.

Moët & Chandon’s grand vintage pack marries the fun of a gift set (it’s presented in a stylish wooden box) with the genuine luxury factor that only a trio of vintage champagnes can bring.

What better way to keep your vintage Moët & Chandon set cool than with an architecturally designed champagne cooler. The ultimate in just-because luxury, this stainless steel creation by Georg Jensen is aptly called The Indulgence. Touché.

Balenciaga’s branded tote is the perfect mix of on-trend (repeat after us: logomania is back) and classic, with the simple boxy shape and leather finish making for a very chic update on the everyday tote.

As far as hair care goes, you’d be hard-pressed to find a product more luxurious than the Dyson Airwrap Styler. The cool younger sibling to the cult-following Dyson Supersonic, the styling and curling device became an overnight must-have for in-the-know beauty editors when it launched last year.

Does anything scream luxe like a jewel-studded sandal? We say no. Jimmy Choo’s Bobbie heels walk the line between glam and classic – and this blush hue is a refreshing change from the usual black leather.

A classic trench coat is a wardrobe staple; every woman should own at least one. Carla Zampatti’s oversized navy option is a lifetime investment, and will make dressing for Sydney’s off-again on-again stormy weather a cinch.
