The perfect Mother’s Day gift: a kimono to make her feel gorgeous

The past year has been tough, and I would say, particularly tough on mums who have been combining the pressure of homeschooling, holding down jobs while working from home – and keeping a fairly ‘normal’ family life going in these strange times. No wonder so many mothers around the globe feel exhausted and pretty much worn out. Mother’s Day is happening soon (Sunday the 14th of March in the UK, in many other European countries and the US it falls on Sunday the 9th of May), so let’s make all mothers feel a little extra appreciated. It’s not all about gift-buying, and I will most likely be treated to some wonderful home-made crafts and wet kisses by my own children which I adore all the same. But if you have outgrown making clay necklaces, or you feel mum just deserves it, then here’s my ‘feel-gorgeous’ suggestion, which I am sure any mother would love to receive.

A Silk Kimono for Mother’s Day

Weartheworldlabel has some pretty kimonos, like this one at £59.99

Whether you’re buying a gift for a young new mum, who is so tired that she has forgotten how beautiful she really is, or for an older mum, who still wants to feel glam, gorgeous and sexy, you can’t go wrong with a silk kimono. It is such a luxurious feeling to slip on a silk kimono in the morning (or, hey, why not wear it on a night out, with a belt and some high heels!), it makes you instantly feel good. A mood buster for sure and a perfect gift for mother’s day. Check out the ones from KimonoDragonLimited or Weartheworldlabel.

Cotton kimonos

If you prefer wearing cotton over silk, then have a look at the cotton kimonos on Etsy. Like silk, cotton feels cool and breathes, but it has a very different feel to it of course.

Cosy kimonos for cooler climates

Silk and cotton kimonos are fine for warmer countries or in summer, but if you or your mum prefers a bathrobe or kimono to be cosy and comforting, then perhaps have a look at those that will keep you warm in the morning. This one, for example, a vintage kimono from the 1950s, in the most gorgeous colours. I know I would love wearing this one for the rest of my life.
