Whether you think she’s a stranger to fashion or the best dressed woman in Bangkok, your mum is the most special lady in your life. Once upon a time, she was the one who fed you, dressed you, and treated you. Now, with Mothers’ Day coming up in Thailand, it’s the perfect opportunity to go all out and do the same for her. An extra stylish gift this year will complement her elegance, her specialness, and show how much you care. Oh, and of course, it might also be (willingly) shared with her loving child who perhaps tends to always borrow her things.
Just to give you a few ideas, here’s our stylish Mothers Day gift guide — a round-up of fashionable finds designed specially for mums who like to look good. Whether she’s a domestic goddess, a savvy businesswoman, or all about the glitz and glamour, we’ve found something just right for her.
Here’s to being the favourite child of the year!

For the glamorous mum…
Max Mara Anita Crocodile Embossed Tote
Any mum would appreciate a top quality day-to-night accessory. Strapped over the shoulder or handheld, this Max Mara tote bag is both incredibly functional and the most advanced level of glamourous.

For the fun-loving mum…
Hermes “small objects”
When your mum’s already known for her great style, get her something to express her sense of fun too. A small, charming, maybe unexpected trinket from her favourite designer brand will do the trick. Of course, you could also just go for an Hermes scarf. That’s a Mother’s Day gift with a zero fail rate.
Available at Hermes. Locations: G/F Central Embassy, Ploen Chit Road, Bangkok 10300 (10am-8pm). www.hermes.com.
