As the days grow longer and the air fills with the scent of blooming flowers, we are reminded that Mother's Day is just around the corner, falling this year on Sunday, May 14, 2023. This day offers us a chance to honour and celebrate the incredible women who have stood by us and shaped us into the people we are today.
At Around the Block, we want to pay tribute to our remarkable mothers by sharing personal staff picks for Mother's Day gifts. Each recommendation is heartfelt, reflecting the unique bond we share with the women who have shaped us into who we are today.
As you browse our picks, we hope you'll feel inspired and find the perfect gift to express your love and appreciation to the woman who has been there for you through thick and thin.
Agresti Jewelry Box
Our team member, Giulia, chose a gift that is both beautiful and practical. “Mum loves jewelry of all kinds, and when this gorgeous Agresti jewelry box arrived at the shop, I instantly thought of her! Beautiful in style and craftsmanship, I think it’d be the perfect home for her eclectic jewelry collection.”
Handcrafted in Italy, Agresti creates high-end luxury jewelry boxes known for quality materials, attention to detail, and stylish design. Giulia’s pick is an elongated octagonal box made of briarwood. However, at Around the Block, we have a wide selection of bespoke jewelry boxes of various shapes, sizes, and materials that would make a lovely gift for any mother.
Amber Jewelry Set and Liberty Shawl Accessories
For her choices, our associate Celeste turned to hand-picked women’s accessories that reminded her of her mom. “In addition to being a wife and mother of four children, my mother was a talented visual artist with great skills in painting, sewing, and knitting. Her daily wardrobe had a boho vibe with lots of denim, global village textiles, and colour. These silver and amber pieces and Liberty shawl remind me of her.”
Coach Wristlet, Benin Queen Sculpture, and Gold Hoops
Our team member, Kaylin, reminds us with her choices that in addition to moms, many women can influence and support us through our lives.
“Most Mother’s Day, I shop for every woman that helped raise me. Usually, my stepmom would gift my sister and me a Coach wristlet. Recently, I’ve noticed she needed a new one, so what better time than Mother’s Day! I chose gold hoops for my grandmother because we both love the shape. And my Mother has s always been inspired by African arts and culture, so the regal Benin Queen sculpture really caught my eye for her.”
Is there such a thing as too much of a good thing? Regarding the perfect Mother’s Day gift, our associate Mark would definitely say no. “Even though she has too many to count, my mum is a sucker for a good copper tray, and I can’t help but think of her whenever I see one at the store.”
