SA: Mother’s Day is on Sunday 27 March and, as we spent the last two in lockdown, the pressure is really on to pull out all the stops this year. A good gift can go a long way to making her day special (as can a great afternoon tea or Michelin-starred meal delivery), so make this year’s one to remember with our edit of the best luxury gifts for Mother’s Day 2022.

Fashion gifts

Olivia von Halle Queenie floral print robe, £895, net-a-porter.com; Loewe Goya shoulder bag, £2,700, net-a-porter.com; Pressed floral eye mask and scrunchie set, £35, lilyandlionel.com; Saint Laurent espadrilles, £380, harrods.com; Stine Goya Scharla jumper, £230, selfridges.com

A luxe wardrobe update makes for a truly thoughtful Mother's Day gift. Stine Goya's colourful knit is the perfect universally-flattering piece to inject some brightness into her look, while you can never go wrong with a good Loewe shoulder bag and Saint Laurent's neutral espadrilles will go with everything from her favourite jeans to a new summer dress. And for ultimate in luxe relaxation? Olivia von Halle's silk robes are good enough to leave the house in – but also pair perfectly with Lily and Lionel's floral bedtime accessories.

Beauty gifts

Espa Optimal Skin Pro-serum, £55, cultbeauty.co.uk; Byredo Gypsy Water Eau de Parfum, £182, spacenk.com; A Moment for Mum hamper, £225, harveynichols.com; La Mer The Hand Treatment, £88, johnlewis.com; Iconic London Ultimate Brush Set, £75, harrods.com

You could treat your mum to an indulgent spa treatment for Mother’s Day but gifting her a range of the best beauty products on the market is guaranteed to make her feel pampered – and lasts so much longer. A good beauty routine starts with great skincare; Espa's soothing serum and La Mer’s nourishing hand treatment more than fit the bill. Add to this a dash of Byredo’s fresh Gypsy Water scent, an upgrade to her well-worn make-up brushes and a treasure trove of treats from Harvey Nichols and she’ll be stepping into the new season feeling like a new woman.

Jewellery gifts

Chaumet Jeux de Liens Harmony malachite and diamond rose gold pendant, £3,400, chuamet.com; Annoushka freshwater pearl hoops, £790, annoushka.com; Jessie Thomas precious stone earrings with detachable pearls, £4,500, jessiethomasjewellery.com; Tilda's Bow diamond watch, £55,000, graff.com; Bucherer Fine Jewellery Peekaboo rose gold, diamond and prasiolite bangle, £1,500, bucherer.com

Few and far between are the women who fail to be seduced by something shiny and glittering. For modern mothers, both Annoushka and Jessie Thomas are offering a contemporary twist on the classic pearl earring, while Bucherer Fine Jewellery’s Peekaboo bangle, finished with a pastel prasiolite, is timelessly elegant. If watches are more her thing, this diamond-set piece from Graff's Tilda's Bow collection is an absolute showstopper while Chaumet’s Jeux de Liens pendant can be engraved on the reverse for a more personal touch.

Interiors and home gifts

Lily Pearman dinner bowls, £70 for two, ssense.com; Naturally dyed linen napkins, £60 for four, vedcooks.com; Tulip tumblers, £660 for four, asprey.com; Vaisselle Magic Ball Bud vase, £50, libertylondon.com; Mayfair rose vase set, from £125, flowerbx.com

If it’s been a while since your last family get-together, we're willing to bet your mum is itching to have you over as soon as possible. In which case a few well-chosen interior design items are guaranteed to go down a storm. Lily Pearman's chic ceramic bowls, Asprey’s tulip-emblazoned tumblers and Vaisselle's charming vase will elevate any table, while Ved Cooks pretty pastel napkins make for the perfect finishing touch to any tablescape. And don't arrive empty-handed: a vase of Flowerbx roses is a classic.

Foodie gifts

Charbonnel et Walker milk sea salt caramel truffles, £28, libertylondon.com; Ruinart Rosé Champagne, £70, clos19.com; Isle of Wight Distillery Mermaid gin, £48, harveynichols.com; Smythson Panama tea set, £2,995, smythson.com; Smeg milk frother, £170, selfridges.com

When all else fails, you can’t go wrong with a lavish foodie gift. Chocolates and champagne are the obvious go-tos (something from Charbonnel et Walker or Ruinart is impressive without being cliche) while the Isle of Wight Distillery's eye-catching gin is more than your average bottle of Gordon’s. If breakfast in bed is a Mother’s Day tradition in your family, get her day off to a good start with Smeg’s vintage milk frother and Smythson’s utterly opulent tea set.
