#1 DéLonghi PrimaDonna Elite Coffee Machine
Does your mum swear by her morning caffeine hit? Then DéLonghi’s latest innovation could make you the favourite child this Mother’s Day. The PrimaDonna Elite produces barista-quality coffee from the comfort of mum’s home with the new Coffee Link App, which allows users to create their coffee with endless customisation options from a flat white for a morning ‘wake-me-up’ to a cappuccino for an afternoon ‘pick-me-up’. You can tap on the app from another room and have your coffee in the kitchen waiting for you by the time you’re up. It’s also totally touch screen, so no sticky buttons and plenty of control.
#2 L’Oiseau Bird By Vitra
If your mum loves her nick nacks then the L’Oiseau Bird by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec of Vitra is the mantle piece or book shelf accessory she’ll love. Shaped from maple wood and gently smoothed, L’Oiseau conjures the clarity of the wooden objects of Nordic folk art. It also adds a “sympathetic note to modern interiors without being at all cutesy or kitschy like many other animal figures.”
#3 Alexander McQueen Scarf
You can’t really go wrong with a scarf on Mother’s Day. This particular one, from Alexander McQueen has been made in Italy from lustrous silk crepe de chine. Trimmed with long swishy tassels, this ivory style is printed with black and mint hearts, flowers and skulls – the brand’s signatures.
#4 BYREDO Gypsy Water Hand Cream
Mum’s love a bit of hand cream. BYREDO’s luxurious hand cream is infused with the brand’s signature ‘Gypsy Water’ fragrance so mum can soften her hands while enjoying the refreshing scent throughout the day. It’s a sweet and peppery mixture, with top notes of Bergamot, Lemon and Juniper Berries blended with smoky Incense. This deeply moisturizing formula is anchored by soft Vanilla and Sandalwood. It’s perfect for travel and less risky than trying to pick a perfume for mum.
