Mother’s Day 2020: Gift ideas from Louis Vuitton, Rimowa and Net-a-Porter that will be instantly shipped right to the door

Here you go, a pretty great last-minute gift guide your mother doesn’t have to know about

Hardworking mothers might be the unsung heroes of our lives, but choosing a gift that adequately sums up how much you appreciate the mother figures is no small feat. Especially if your mum is a discerning one with high standards.

If you’re finding it hard to pinpoint the best gift for the mother figures in your life, take a deep breath. We’ve got you covered. Whether you’re shopping for your own mother, your partner, an aunt or a grandmother, we’ve rounded up some of the best Mother’s Day gift ideas. From award-winning chocolate to that special Cartier watch, these can all be shipped right to her door in time for the 10th of May.

Louis Vuitton

Delivery time: Same day

What to get: The homeware and gifting collections at Louis Vuitton are a safe bet for every type of mom. Add a little warmth to her home with a set of perfumed candles or hammock, and throw in something extra to help her sleep more soundly, like a mink fur and silk sleep mask.

Rimowa

Delivery time: Three to five working days

What to get: While we all wish we could whisk mom away for a well-deserved tropical vacation, upgrading her luggage comes as a pretty decent stand-in until it’s safe to take off again. A favourite of celebrities and the design-conscious alike, Rimowa makes giving the gift of future travel rather easy. We’re particularly fond of the Dior and Rimowa Cabin, a one-of-a-kind collaboration that combines the emblematic Dior Oblique design with long-lasting aluminium construction. 

Delivery is complimentary until 15 June 2020. Drop Rimowa an email for orders and payments can be made via bank transfer.

Temple Cellars

Delivery time: Same day

What to get: Celebrations call for alcohol – and lots of it. If you haven’t had the chance to stock up on mom’s favourite bottle of booze, don’t worry about it. Temple Cellars offers same-day delivery across Singapore, and has some of the best tipple that money can buy, including Ulysse Collin Les Maillons Blanc de Noirs Extra Brut 2015 and Pahlmeyer Proprietary Red, a 2014 vintage with ripe fruit flavours and notes of liquorice. But if she prefers something stiffer and a bit more interesting, we recommend Empirical Spirits’ Ayuuk, a spirit built around Pasilla Mixe, a smoke-dried chilli pepper.

Farfetch

Delivery time: One to two working days

What to get: While Farfetch has an impressive selection of watches, jewellery, and ready-to-wear items, there is much to like about their selection of luxury and designer homeware – which ranges from office essentials, like the leather-bound Prada Cahier Pocket Diary down to must-haves like the kitschy Gucci Snake Vase and trippy Fornasetti Rossetto Scent Diffuser.

Apple

Delivery time: Two to three working days

What to get: Who said practical gifts have to be dull? Whether mum has been lusting over your pair of Apple AirPods Pro, hinting at the latest Apple x Hermès Watch Series 5, or in desperate need of a new iPad Pro, a little white package from the Apple Store will always be well-received and put to good use. We can guarantee it.

Net-a-Porter

Delivery time: Two to three working days

What to get: Based in London, this pioneering fashion website is known for its vast selection of designer jewellery and accessories – ranging from Cartier and Versace to Balmain and Jacquemus. If you really want to impress mum this year, consider a timeless Versace Gold-Tone Hair Slide, or go big with the Cartier Tank Américaine, a meticulously handcrafted 18-karat pink gold timepiece that’s nearly as special as she is.

Net-a-Porter

Zerrin

Delivery time: Three to four working days

What to get: We could all use a little chill in our lives these days, and Zerrin delivers on that promise of zen with elegance and sophistication. This Singapore-based retailer curates a selection of unique and sustainable brands that you can feel good about. For instance, the In-Heal Roll-On Aromatherapy Blend Set which includes a set of seven blends created for instant stress relief. But if your mother prefers accessories over aromatherapy, the 18k gold-plated Pyar Be Shell Stud Earrings and brass Ashepa Spear Cuff are brilliant options as well.

Matches Fashion

Delivery time: Three to five working days

What to get: Matches Fashion offers over 400 luxury brands with one of the biggest selections of handbags and small leather goods online. Whether mum has been hinting at a nouveau classic Gucci GG Marmont woven shoulder bag or she prefers something a little more avant-garde, like Bottega Veneta’s The Pouch, the London-based luxury retailer has something for every taste and style.

Kinokuniya

Delivery time: One to two working days

What to get: If she has to self-isolate, it’s best to do so with a selection of good reads. Help foster her interests with Ottolenghi Simple and The World Atlas of Coffee, or inspire her next trip with The Monocle Book of Japan.

Hello Chocolate

Delivery time: Same day

What to get: There’s no way you can go wrong with chocolate. The “Best of the Best” hamper from Hello Chocolate includes at least eight award-winning chocolate from producers all over the world. That includes Zotter from Austria, Raaka from Brooklyn and the life-changing François Pralus, a French bean-to-bar maker from Roanne, France.
