Gift Guide: Mother’s Day

Whether she enjoys hosting a dinner party, dressing up for every occasion (including bedtime!), or is embracing her role as dog mom, there’s a gift for every mother figure this May:

For the Hostess:

UXUA Utopia: A Very Gifted Guest House

The boutique property on the Bahian coast of Brazil tends to attract a cool crowd (Anderson Cooper loved it so much that he built a house; its where Solange Knowles spent her honeymoon; models like Candice Swanepoel have been spotted there…), so it’s no surprise that leading trend forecaster Li Edelkoort joined forces to release this coffee table book. The 288 pages combine elements of design, art, and travel, exploring owner Wilbert Das’ achievements in establishing values for a new world through a local project meant to set a global example. Past guests can reminisce about their holidays while flipping through the beautiful pages, and those yet to visit can daydream and imagine themselves in the tropical paradise of Trancoso, Brazil. The book retails for $150.

Artisan Olive Oil from Tenuta di Murlo in Umbria

Tenuta di Murlo’s exclusive olive oil, harvested at the 18,000-acre estate from a blend of Dolce Agogia, Frantoio, Leccino, and Moraiolo olives holds the DOP label (Protected Designation of Origin) that is awarded to products that are produced, processed and prepared with ingredients from the specific region. For subtle amaro and spicy flavors, while also enjoying a fruity aroma with herbaceous notes, gift a bundle of three bottles for $83 on

Charlotte & Co at Dromoland Castle

Instead of the requisite trinkets that often fill hotel gift shops, Dromoland Castle’s Charlotte & Co, a boutique celebrating Irish artisans and giving visitors a one-stop shop to pick up an authentic, Irish-made item to remember their trip. The boutique features a collection of Irish contemporary design comprising homewares by KOPPER KREATION made with reclaimed copper, steel, and brass; handmade perfumes made in and inspired by The Burren national park from Burren Perfumery; super chic freeform architectural modeling kits from ARCKIT (think Lego goes high design); and several other proudly Irish makers.

For the Fashionista:

Scottish Fashion from The Fife Arms

Renowned British couture designer Giles Deacon has collaborated with The Fife Arms in Braemar, Scotland to create an exclusive capsule collection in celebration of the inaugural Festival of Fashion. A frequent visitor to the hotel, Deacon merged the bespoke house tweed and tartan with his high-fashion expertise. The collection is comprised of the Munro Victoria Cape ($2,775) and three versions of the Munro Bag (from $678), including one that features an archival print of the legendary Braemar Gathering, an annual event regularly attended by the reigning Monarch and members of the British Royal Family. His pieces are worn and collected the world over by private clients, red carpet celebrities and royalty (he designed Pippa Middleton’s wedding dress). The Munro Capsule collection can be found on The Fife Arms’ online shop.

Centenary Collection from COPA X FARM Rio

Two of Rio’s most iconic brands, Copacabana Palace, A Belmond Hotel, Rio de Janeiro and FARM Rio, the city’s most renowned fashion brand, have collaborated on a centenary collection inspired by Rio’s vibrant Carioca spirit and Copacabana Palace’s 100 years of timeless elegance. The collection is the first time FARM Rio has teamed up with a luxury hospitality brand, connecting contemporary fashion with time-old glamour. Within the collection, the black Copacabana Chemise ($260) brings a tone of sophistication embellished with the classic tropical bananas print for a quick transition from walks on the beach to dinner by the pool.

The Parker X Sant & Abel Women’s Parker Boxer Set

Sleep in style in a new pajama set this Mother’s Day. Sant & Abel created an exclusive Parker Palm Springs print with colorful sketches of the iconic cheeky and whimsical elements that lie within the hotel’s estate – from the Jonathan Adler-designed bronzed banana statue and the poolside, Lemonade Stand to the pink lip artwork by Jessica Rowe and the room service cyclists. The word “DRUGS” in the print is a nod to the 1930s vintage sign sourced from a pharmacy in Idaho that now hangs in the lobby. The shirt & boxer set can be purchased online here for $170.
