The fact that we should celebrate our mothers every single day of the year is undisputed, but how can we ignore a day that is specifically created to shower her with love and affection? The 13th of May grows ever closer and for those readers who haven’t yet realised that it’s so close (we won’t judge, we’ve been there), we’ve got a few tips up our sleeves to help you find the perfect gift.
Lined up for you, we have a number of brands we love, selling key summer items, at prices to suit everyone’s pockets. Let’s dive straight in.
1) A Gorgeous Kaftan From Accessorize
It would be an understatement to say that Accessorize is every woman’s best friend when it comes to charming gifts at affordable prices. Today we’re singling out their colourful and beautiful kaftans, the go-to beach item perfect for when you feel like throwing something over your swimming costume to nip over to that café across the beach (or have to run after your kids whilst they attempt all kinds of beach shenanigans).
Your mother (or leading lady) will appreciate it, not least because it’s something she will definitely use, but also because the item itself reflects everything summer is about: colour, fun and comfort. If you think your she already has enough Kaftans (is that even possible?!) worry not, Accessorize is fit to burst with other items you’ll love, including other beach wear options and much more.
You can find Accessorize at the following locations: Sliema; Valletta; Main Street, Paola; Bay Street; Pavi; Pama and The Duke, Gozo
2) A Stylish Hat from Emthunzini Hats
How about a gift which, not only looks fantastic, but has your mother’s wellness at heart? Emthunzini Hats, distributed pretty much everywhere on this side of the planet, have a UPF50+ rating, the highest you can find on the market. So much so, that it is endorsed by the international Skin Cancer Foundation, the Cancer Council of Australia and The Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA).
This alone speaks volumes about the protection these hats offer against the harmful rays. The beauty of Emthunzini hats lies in the fact that they don’t compromise on fashion. One look at their website will put your mind at rest; your mum will be well taken care of and look fabulous at the same time.

3) A Wellness Package from MINT Wellness
Staying on the subject of health and wellness, MINT houses the kind of feel-good products we need more of in our lives, plus you can conveniently purchase the items online via their online shop and create your own custom made package.
With products ranging from super-foods to organic skin care products and anti-ageing products, this brand has your wellness, and that of planet Earth, close to its heart. Any woman would love MINT’s gift boxes (who doesn’t love a gift made up of many gifts?!), which can come as standard packs or which you can customise to your heart’s content.
Our favourite pack is the Shiny Box which combines natural and organic skin pampering by Organii with the nutritious super-food properties of Shine, but don’t take our word for it, have a look at MINT Wellness’ gift pack range here.
4) A Statement Piece from Yana’s Jewellery
A statement piece of jewellery from Yana’s Jewellery is the perfect gift for the mum who loves originality and colour.
The brand’s concept is an interesting one because no two pieces of jewellery are exactly the same. Each piece is custom-made depending on the client’s choices. You can visit Yana at her store in Msida and brief her on exactly what type of necklace, ring or bracelet you think would suit your mum’s style and taste, and she will help you create a unique piece that your mum will surely love.
5) An Exclusive Hair Treatment from Dean Gera Salons
Dean Gera Salons need no introduction with a team of 40 plus professional hairdressers located in 6 different salons across the island.
Being mums ourselves we know how we tend to always put our own pampering on the back-burner so why not show your mum (or wife) that she deserves to make time for herself by getting her a voucher from one of the Dean Gera Salons? With salons located in various regions, she can pick the one most convenient for her, while booking is seamless and easily done online. Plus did you know that Dean Gera Salons serve complimentary refreshments to their esteemed clients ranging from juices and coffee to wine and Prosecco? Now that’s what we call a real pampering break.
6) A ‘Mum’s Day Off’ Package From Myoka Spas
Myoka Spas really know how to treat mums to a much-deserved break with a selection of packages created specifically to pamper busy mums.
The ‘Mum’s Day Off’ package offers a Hot Stone Massage, Jasmine Facial and Use of spa facilities, whilst the ‘Best Mum’ package includes a Radiance Facial, Pressure Point Foot Massage and Use of Spa Facilities.
Myoka Spas have also come up with the ‘Mummy & Me’ Package which involves a treatment for both mother and daughter where you can spend some well-deserved quality time with your mum whilst you both relax and indulge in a Full Body Massage, Awakening Detox Face Mask and make use of the spa facilities.
Give your mum her own slice of heaven with a special Mother’s Day package from Myoka Spas. You can also choose to give her one of Myoka Spas’ gift vouchers which are available for purchase online here.
7) A Stunning Beach Towel From L’ALLÉE By Pippa Toledo
L’ALLÉE By Pippa Toledo is a new concept store located in Tower Road, Sliema focused on fashion and lifestyle, where you can find a collection of bespoke accessories along with other unique brands that are hand-picked by Pippa Toledo herself.
We set our eyes on these stunning beach towels from the ‘L’Allee’ collection which evoke a feeling of sophistication and style whilst being super practical too. They are available in both square and round format and in various colors and patterns to suit anyone’s taste.
8) A Week’s Worth of Home-Cooked Meals From Peas & Love
Peas & Love is a recent discovery of ours and one we are very excited to share with all of you. The brand’s concept is to provide a home-delivery food service only offering the healthiest, most delicious dishes, made from wholesome and healthy ingredients. Let’s face it we are all super busy and what better way to say thank you to your mum (or the mother of your children) than getting her a week’s worth of home-cooked delicious goodness from Peas & Love?
The prices are extremely affordable and judging from the brand’s amazing reviews we guarantee any mum would appreciate the well-deserved break.
Although these gifts can in no way match all the hard-work mummies put in daily, they serve as a little reminder which says “hey, I see what you’re doing. I appreciate it very, very much and I love you tremendously”. Happy shopping & happy mother’s day to the wonder women in our lives!
