    The Edit: Mother’s Day

    Celebrate your mother on Sunday 27 March with a day entirely dedicated to her – and gorgeous gifts galore from luxury brands at The Royal Exchange


    The stylish mother-about-town will be bowled over by this beautiful leather handbag from Aspinal of London. The British luxury brand has nailed the art of designing pieces that imbue timeless elegance with a contemporary twist, and the new-season mint green hue will go with every outfit she owns.

    They say it’s the thought that counts – and what could be more thoughtful than a new pair of statement diamond earrings? These striking yet simple yellow gold and diamond earrings from Boodles’ Roulette collection are a modern symbol of eternal love. Classic Roulette yellow gold diamond earrings, £3,100, Boodles



    Every mother deserves to be whisked away for a long weekend in Italy. But if your budget doesn’t quite stretch that far, British fragrance house Jo Malone London is offering the next best thing with its limited-edition new Blossoms collection. The ravishing Sea Daffodil scent (available in a cologne and diffuser) captures ‘a chance discovery along the Italian coast’ with its radiant notes of ylang ylang, warm vanilla and creamy sandalwood. Sea Daffodil cologne 100ml, £112, Jo Malone London



    A silk scarf used to be something associated with women of a certain age but, these days this timeless accessory has had quite the modern renaissance. Luxury French atelier Hermès has been producing vibrant silk scarves of all shapes, sizes and designs for decades. We love this intricate tiger print, based on a 1977 design by artist Christiane Vauzelles. Tigre Royal double face scarf 90, £485, Hermès



    Mother’s Day is, ultimately, a day of love. Whoever you may be celebrating on 27 March, show them some love with a meaningful and inspiring gift, such as this dazzling bracelet from Vashi. The modern bespoke jeweller’s Lovestrike collection takes inspiration from the shape of sound waves formed by a beating heart in a statement yet subtle token of affection. Lovestrike pavé bracelet, £650, Vashi



    An iconic Fortnum & Mason hamper is a no-brainer of a gift. Not only does it contain oodles of delightful gifts and treats guaranteed to raise a smile, but it also takes all the stress out of shopping. This exceptional and specially curated Mother’s Day hamper includes indulgent caramel-chocolate truffles, florentines, soothing teas and delicious preserves, all presented in a signature F&M wicker hamper. Mother’s Day hamper, £100, shop the hamper range at Fortnum & Mason at The Royal Exchange.



    The humble strawberry is the inspiration for a sweet new scent from Malin + Goetz. The cult American beauty and skincare brand is still in residence at The Royal Exchange and stocks plenty of unique and best-selling gift sets and products. But this simple eau de parfum, with its bright notes of bergamot and pink pepper juxtaposed with warm musk, jasmine petals and orris root, is a fantastic all-rounder. Strawberry eau de parfum, £78, Malin + Goetz



    Oeno House is the debut boutique from premium wine specialists Oeno Group, where you can pop in for a glass of vino after work or pick up a bottle of something special to take away and enjoy at home. Speaking of which, for Mother’s Day, Oeno House is championing a bottle of 2012 Champagne Louis Roederer Brut Nature rosé. This delightful Pinot noir offers an intense fruitiness with notes of violet and gentian, offset by spicy Sichuan pepper. Champagne Louis Roederer Brut Nature rosé 2012, £92, Oeno House
