Mother’s Day is a special occasion to celebrate and honour the amazing women in our lives who have raised and nurtured us and those that we love. But of course we give gifts to the mums in our lives for all sorts of other occasions (and ‘just because’!).
While there are countless gift ideas out there, jewellery is a timeless and meaningful choice that can express your love and gratitude in a tangible way.
If you’re looking for great Mother’s Day gift ideas (or for a mum at any time of year), here are some tips on how to choose the perfect jewellery in silver, gold or gemstones as gifts for your own mum, the mothers you know, and the mum-like people in your life. Plus we have some beautiful Australian jewellery suggestions to inspire you.
Let’s dive in …
Gifts Ideas for Your Mum
When it comes to choosing jewellery for your own mother, you’ll want to consider her personal style and preferences. Think about the type of jewellery she already wears and what pieces would complement her existing collection.
For example, if she tends to wear simple, classic pieces, then a delicate gold necklace or stud earrings might be the perfect choice. In particular, solid gold jewellery could be a very special choice, especially if your mum tends not to treat herself to such things.
On the other hand, if she likes to be bolder with her jewellery, you could opt for a unique charm bracelet, a piece of statement jewellery or a brightly coloured gemstone beaded necklace.
Another factor to consider is the sentiment behind the design. Look for meaningful jewellery, such as birthstone jewellery or a piece that represents an inside joke or shared memory.
Engraved jewellery is also a great way to personalise a piece and add a special message. You may not be able to purchase a design ready engraved, but allow plenty of time and pay a visit to a local manufacturing jeweller who should be able to add engraving to your chosen piece, depending on the design.
For the Mothers You Know
If you’re looking for a gift for the mothers in your life, such as your wife or partner, grandmother, sister, aunt or friend, you’ll want to consider their individual styles and tastes as well.
However, in some cases, you may not know their preferences as well as you do your own mother’s. In this case, a safe bet is to choose a piece of jewellery that is timeless and versatile, such as a pair of classic hoop earrings or a simple necklace with pendant.
You could also consider selecting a piece of jewellery that is symbolic or representative of motherhood, such as jewellery featuring chrysanthemum flowers or a necklace with a heart design. Pieces like these can serve as a meaningful reminder of the special bond between a mother and child.
Gifts for the Mum-Like People in Your Life
Finally, don’t forget about the special women in your life who may not be your mother – or even anyone’s mother – but have played a maternal role in your life or that of someone close to you. This could include a stepmother, mother-in-law, aunt, carer or a close friend.
One approach is to choose a piece of jewellery that reflects their personality and interests. For example, if she’s Australian and loves nature, an Australian flora jewellery design could be a thoughtful gift.
Alternatively, you could select a piece of jewellery that is versatile and can be worn with a variety of outfits and styles, such as a pair of simple drop earrings or a unique chain necklace.
Mother’s Day Gift Presentation Ideas
Once you’ve selected the perfect piece of jewellery as a Mother’s Day gift, it’s time to think about how you want to present it. The way you present your gift can add an extra special touch and make the recipient feel truly appreciated.
Don’t forget to wrap the jewellery in a special box or gift bag, with gift wrapping also added if appropriate. Of course you should add a note or greeting card expressing your love and gratitude. At Simone Walsh Jewellery you can include personal notes with gifts you’ve purchased and opt to add gift wrapping or a greeting card – and all of our jewellery comes presented in gift boxes.
Another option is to give the gift in person, along with a bouquet of flowers. Why not consider a handpicked bunch from your garden tied up with a ribbon? Other ideas include presenting your gift with a special meal – or even with breakfast in bed if you live with your mum.
Whatever you choose, make sure it reflects your consideration and appreciation for the amazing mothers in your life.
