Mothers are the epitome of nurturers who guide us with unwavering love and boundless devotion—and when we say mothers, we’re also referring to all the maternal figures in our lives, from aunts and grandmothers to friends and mentors, who deserve recognition and celebration every day.

Like every other year, with a little over a month until the big day, the ultimate question arises: What gift should we get? No matter how close we are to our moms, finding the right present they might actually like is challenging. Often, when asked about their desires for upcoming birthdays or Mother’s Day, they simply shrug off our inquiries with responses like “I don’t need anything” or “I have everything.” But here are some words of wisdom: If they claim not to need anything, aim for something they want, or better yet, something they didn’t even know they wanted.

While flowers are a classic choice, this year, why not go above and beyond? Whether she’s into quiet luxuries like timeless jewellery, designer clothes, and vintage handbags, or she’s more of a tech-savvy, personalised gift kinda gal, there’s always something suited for every occasion. Hence, we’ve scoured the ends of the earth (well, maybe just the cyberspace) to find the most unique and thoughtful gestures that will make Mom’s heart skip a beat. From new moms to jet-setting adventurers, grandmas, and everything in between, we’ve got something for every momma out there.
