Mother’s Day is around the corner, and we’ve made your shopping easy with our carefully curated pick of gifts! You can either shop the #MCWishlist directly if you’re looking for a gift for your mother, or (if you’re hoping to receive some gifts yourself) you can make a wishlist and we’ll send it to your loved ones to make sure you get what you really want.
Here, the MC team shares our favourite products on the #MCWishlist that we’ll definitely be ordering for our moms, pronto.

My mom is a declared shopaholic and, just like me, she loves winter! I think she’d adore the soft-pink, limited-edition superfine wool coat from Trenery for her seasonal collection of cover-ups. Along with her love for fashion (which has very evidently rubbed off on me) she taught me to always carry a tube of hand cream in my handbag. The Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour cream hand treatment is such a great go-to for emergency moisturising – she’ll love it for sure!

My mom and I don’t get to spend as much quality time together as either of us would like, so for Mother’s Day I’d like to get her (and me, ha!) the Sunset Champagne Cruise For Two from Waterfront Charters. I can’t think of many better ways to spend an afternoon, and I know that my mom would really enjoy it too! Something else she’d love is the Diptyque Feu de Bois Scented Candle from Luminance – I inherited her obsession with scented candles!
My mom is a great cook and she spends most of her weekends watching cooking shows like Siba’s Table, so Siba’s book Welcome To My Table will make the perfect gift. She also loves being pampered so the Sorbet Gift Voucher and the DKNY Nectar Love 100ml EDP Gift Set is something she’ll really appreciate.

My mom is a fragrance aficionado and she absolutely can’t resist a high-end fragrance (I really am my mother’s daughter). Growing up, I could always tell she’s home just by getting a whiff of her scent from wherever I was in the house, so I think a strong perfume like Narciso Rodriguez Fleur Musc Eau de Parfum would be the best gift for her. My mom is also very strict about the quality of her linen and she only uses white linen, so the Country Road Emba quilt cover would make her Mothers’ Day.

My mom drinks a lot of tea, and for years she’s been mixing Earl Grey and Ceylon (it’s a delicious blend – try it). She really loves porcelain teacups and feminine touches, so I know she’d be tickled by the delicate pink and gold teacup in the lifestyle section. My mom is also a complete travel addict, so I’ll definitely be getting her a copy of 1000 Places To See Before You Die.
