No two mums are exactly the same and that’s why we’ve packed this year’s Mother’s Day Gift Guide with a little bit of everything. From the latest Apple Watch to Penfolds’ beloved Rosé to power banks to running shoes and so much more, we’re bringing you the best of all product categories. Take your time but don’t take too much time because the big day is right around the corner and some of these items are available in limited supply, which isn’t to mention potential shipping delays. Let’s get on with the gifts, shall we? Here’s our curated selection for 2023.
In partnership with Longines
Arguably best known for their classic aviation watches, Longines is certainly no stranger to timeless sophistication. The Longines DolceVita collection exudes all that and more whilst paying an ode to the Italian sweet life of luxury. Synonymous with the best in elegant watch design since its very inception, the range kicks off a new chapter with this latest and possibly greatest iteration.
Your taste of the sweet life arrives at the first sight of this slim stunner and its diamond-set case of prime stainless steel. Move inward to discover a dazzling silver “flinqué” pattern display with painted Roman numerals, blued steel hands, and signature logo detailing. A precise timekeeper perhaps, but the watch also imparts the allure of ultra-premium jewellery. If you want to make Mum’s eyes pop and jaw drop, this is your chance. – $6,450
Penfolds Bin 23 Pinot Noir 2021
In partnership with Penfolds
This bold and complex Pinot Noir was once matured in ‘Cellar 23’ at Magill Estate, hence the name of Bin 23. It comes to us on the heels of the acclaimed Penfolds Cellar Reserve Pinot Noir and finds the Aussie winemaker continuing to explore varietals from cooler-climate regions. Dark cherry in colour, it opens on a virtuosic nose of strawberry, wheatgerm, biscuits, and jelly crystals with fresh and floral undertones.
As for the taste, it’s everything one could ask for out of a modern Pinot Noir. Soft and juicy tannins and a firm acidity lend the wine a consistent textural backbone as it rides over the palate in silky waves of ripe fruit, spiced white pudding, tobacco leaf, and violet. A palpable minerality persists and helps round out the balanced, fruit-forward flavour profile for what can only be described as one heck of a rewarding sip.
Bin 23 Pinot Noir represents yet another knockout for Penfolds. Grown in optimal conditions and matured for eight months in French oak barriques (40% new), it’s in peak drinking condition from now until 2030. Grab a bottle for your wine-loving mum and show her what a true Pinot Noir is made of, with the discreet hope that she’ll pour you a glass. Sharing is caring, after all. – $50
Clean Origin Certified Round 4-Prong Studs in 14K Gold
In partnership with Clean Origin
Clean Origin is more than a name and also a mission statement, as this brand exclusively uses lab-grown diamonds for their incredible (and ethical) selection of modern jewellery. And if you think that infers a drop in quality, then you simply haven’t picked up on what these folks are throwing down, which isn’t to mention their 100-day return policy or best-in-class customer service. Their eco-friendly ethos is more like icing on an already delicious cake.
For a prime example of Clean Origin’s output (and an awesome Mother’s Day gift), we present the Certified Round 4-Prong Studs in 14K Gold. Each of these beautiful stud earrings securely sets two certified brilliant lab-grown diamonds within a four-prong basket of either 14K yellow or white gold. They practically pop off the screen so imagine what they’ll look like on your mother’s ears. Welcome to the future of jewellery. – $335
Giorgio Armani Si Eau De Parfum
In partnership with Giorgio Armani
Giorgio Armani named this iconic eau de parfum Sì (i.e. “Yes” in Spanish) as an ode to feminine empowerment, ambition, independence, and love of self. The olfactory stunner manages to capture those very intentions with its bold and sensual profile, balancing a warm white wood accord with heart notes of floral chypre and top notes of blackcurrant nectar. The transfixing bottle is no less spectacular in its combination of minimalist aesthetic and avant-garde detail.
Sì Eau De Parfum makes up part of a larger family and comes joined by other selections such as Sì Intense and Sì Passione. No matter where you land, you’re getting a feast for the senses and a glorious beauty product for your buck. What else would you expect from Giorgio Armani, one of the most dependable names in fashion and fragrance alike? They’ve put their very soul into this one and the results will speak for themselves. Yes is right. – $118 and up

In partnership with NOMOS Glashuette

A masterpiece of design, style, and performance alike, Tetra first catches the eye with its elegant rose-coloured display. Similarly distinguished is the seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock, which is grooved in the mold of a vinyl record, complete with an audible tick-tock rhythm.
Measuring a tight 29.5 mm in diameter, Tetra’s square case of stainless steel lays flat against the wrist and comes affixed to a velvety strap of vegan velour. A hand-wound caliber Alpha ensures the utmost precision whilst premium sapphire crystal glass delivers ample protection. With all these features and details flowing together in a truly harmonious fashion, the piece becomes a symphony of colour and material, and a gift that’s simply too good to refuse. – $2850
