We all seem to have a list of things that we would love to have or maybe haven’t got around to purchasing. And yet, when perfect opportunities like Mother’s Day arise, this list of things seems to escape us. When we are asked by our loved ones what we might like, we rack our brains and come up empty under the pressure with it all too easy to reply with a “Oh, you know, whatever, a nice card will do.” As it goes, this normally always will result in the gift of a twin set of kitchen tea towels and a hand cream from the discount bin out the front of Chemist Warehouse. Gifts we’re forced to describe as “thoughtful” with a grimace. Deep down we’re grateful for the gesture, but kick ourselves for not being able to have made the effort to articulate what we really might have wanted.
This year we’ve got your back. We managed to track down all the things that are on Nicky’s wishlist and she kindly allowed us to borrow it. And if you’re a mother, you’ll know that “borrow” means take and never give back. Whether you need inspo for your own Mother’s Day present to subtly (not subtly) pass on to your nearest and dearest, or you’re looking for ideas for the important women in your life that you’re looking to celebrate, here are Nicky’s picks.
The Nicky Belt from Post & Co is always an incredible gift idea. As a wardrobe essential, it is something she will be able to love with nearly any outfit.
This silk Rockins neck scarf is a chic addition to any outfit. You can never have too many!
Find us a more comfortable and versatile shoe. We’ll wait here. Philippe Models are the shoe on EVERY woman’s wishlist.
A little sparkle never hurt nobody… A statement earring can add an element of eye candy to any ensemble, but Nicky picked this Arabella Rocha pair because of their versatility.
Maya Brenner necklaces. Delicate, simple, elegant. They’re a truly special gift for Mother’s Day, with many woman purchasing their kids’ initials to wear.
Nicky can’t resist a gold cuff. A self-confessed bangle addict, this one has become a fave to wear paired back with a watch due to its fine detailing.
Shoe god Gianvito Rossi has blessed us in store with these babies and Nicky is nothing short of obsessed. And we’d have to agree.
Day or night, she believes this Whiting & Davis clutch is the ultimate companion.
“Make us a fragrance that smells like love” – Christian Dior. Well, this one from Carner Barcelona is as close it gets.
When you give a woman the right lingerie, she can conquer the world. This comfortable lace set from Cosabella, is available in a range of colours.
