Mother’s Day is just around the corner and if you have not yet made any plans or are still racking your brain on what to gift your mom on this special occasion, we have made a commutative list to help you with it. Scroll down to read about all the special Mother’s Day gifts and treats in Hong Kong.

A treat for her eyes and stomach

Flowers have always been considered a classic gift but truth be told they don’t rank highly when judged based on practicality. So, for this Mother’s Day, why not treat your mother to flowers that are more than mere decoration? A couple of fine-dining restaurants in Hong Kong have put together special menus that hold the visual appeal of those beautiful blossoms with dishes being crafted to attain a floral look.

For instance, Hutong is serving a hearty meal with ten Northern Chinese dishes such as Braised abalone & chicken with Chinese wine and Sichuan-style lobster. But the highlight of this menu has to be Lotus Puff which is baked artistically to mimic a blooming lotus.

Then, there is Dim Sum Library’s very own yum cha experience for enjoying a platter of dim sum varieties which includes the spectacular looking and tasting Pearl scallop and shrimp dumplings in an attractive rose pink shade.

But if your mom loves something sweet, then you can always opt for the Peach mousse with basil ganache & chocolate from Vista or the Strawberry mousse with yuzu, pistachio & cacao from Cantina – both these decadent desserts are crowned with an edible rose on them.

Similarly, you can celebrate with VIVE Cake Boutique’s new range of cakes that are complete with floral arrangements, like the one named Love You Bunches which has pink and white blossoms on top of it, made especially for the special occasion.

A fresh and flavorful start

For all those mothers who need their morning cup of coffee or a caffeine fix at any point of the day, the Nespresso Vertuo Pop would be the most suitable gift. This user-friendly coffee machine is equipped with Centrifusion™ technology that makes it very straightforward to brew different beverages, including Espresso, Double Espresso, Gran Lungo, Mug, and Alto. The machine will scan the barcode on the capsule and prepare the drink for you. Given its small size, your mom can keep it in the home or office space. Besides, as made evident in its name, Vertuo Pop also provide a bright pop of colour with the coffee machine available in six vibrant colours.

A bejewelled surprise

As the queen she is, every mother deserved to be treated like one and what better way to do so than donning her with some exquisite pieces of jewellery? Look no further than Cartier’s newly-launched pieces as part of its Cartier Libre collection. Not compromising in size in any way, these bold, limited-edition pieces of jewellery feature eye-catching designs such as gold beads and twisted corals. The talking point of this bijouterie line is definitely the Rock Chip cape – a gorgeous necklace with an avant-garde pattern.

A bag for all her essentials

On any given day, a bag will stand as the most needed accessory and that is why you can never go wrong when it comes to choosing a bag as a gift for your maternal figure. The only problem would be picking one as there are so many options to choose from, so here are a few of the best ones to make the bag selection process easy for you.

Just this week, Rimowa launched a collection featuring two colour ranges – the pastel pink one called Petal and a brownish-green one called Cedar. The line brings crossbody bags, backpacks, travel suitcases and even iPhone cases in these two attractive shades. There is also Loewe’s Font Tote in Raffia bags that are spacious enough to hold everything she will need throughout the day. Both collections boast super stylish and practical bags.
