Every year on Mother’s Day we get a chance to celebrate the most dependable, hardworking and beautiful women in our lives. Being a mom is a full-time job, and it’s only fitting that we return all that pampering tenfold on their special day – here’s our 2019 Mom’s Day gift guide to make your mommy feel like the Super Mom that she is.
Carry the Essentials with a Designer Bag
Add some luxurious pop to Mom’s understated fashion pieces with some fancy recommendations of ours. Kate Spade’s Sam Wildflower Bouquet Satchel matches with practically anything – from jeans to cocktail wear – while the floral-printed pebbled leather maintains a timelessly fresh look suited to any occasion.
For Moms with more stuff to carry, an Eva tote bag from Michael Kors fits the bill with plenty of style to spare. This carryall’s leather-trimmed exterior coupled with the brand’s signature logo-print twill complements the spacious interior perfectly.
Classy Scents for the Classy Lady
Perfumes are another foolproof gift idea, but step it up a notch this time with these premium scents from Byredo and Hermes. Bal d’Afrique from Stockholm-based niche brand Byredo combines notes of African marigold and Moroccan cedarwood to exude the vibrant mix of French avant-garde and African culture in one bottle.
Un Jardin Sur La Lagune Eau de Toilette, while quite the mouthful, is Christine Nagel’s idea of capturing a floral garden’s cycle between seasons. The Hermes perfumer sprinkles notes of magnolia and Madonna lily to balance the woody elements in this fragrance, akin to finding a secret garden hidden in a Venetian lagoon.
Top-Tier Photography and Entertainment: HUAWEI P30 and HUAWEI MediaPad M5 Lite
If mom’s been using a cramped feature phone for years, it’s time to upgrade her communication experience to the highest level: the HUAWEI P30 and MediaPad M5 Lite are excellent choices just for the slim-bezeled FullView/ClariVu screens alone.
The P30 features the new Triple Leica Camera system that’s been further refined to include telephoto and ultra-wide angle functionality. Taking pictures has never been better on a smartphone, and what a sight they are to behold on the P30’s revamped 6.1-inch Full 1080p Dewdrop display.
For a well-rounded media device that Mom can bring anywhere, the HUAWEI MediaPad M5 Lite is the one to get her. With a 10.1-inch 1080p ClariVU display, Harman Kardon-tuned quad speakers and 7,500mAh battery, this tablet provides hours upon hours of engrossing entertainment.
A Powerful and Stylish Laptop: HUAWEI Matebook 13
Modern working moms are particularly picky about the efficiency they’re getting out of a productivity machine, and more so if the aesthetics are a little questionable. As such, the HUAWEI Matebook 13 is their match made in heaven: this Ultrabook’s 14.9mm-thin frame doesn’t betray the incredible computing power housed beneath, which includes an 8th gen Intel Core i7 processor and integrated Nvidia MX150 graphics chip, among others.
Flip the MateBook 13 open and the stunning 13-inch 2K HD panel immerses the user with its 88% screen-to-body ratio – it’s more like looking through a scenic window view than a screen.
For an enhanced media experience on these HUAWEI devices, it’s best to pair them with some swanky HUAWEI Freebuds. These wireless earphones connect to any HUAWEI device seamlessly while providing high-fidelity audio for 12 hours at a time.
There’s no better way to show a lifetime’s worth of appreciation to our dear mothers than to spend some quality time with them – but going above and beyond to make them feel extra-special on their dedicated day only reflects how they often do the same for us.
