It feels like it’s been a long time since we had cause for accessorising, hasn’t it? But as the world slowly begins to unfurl itself after more than a year of tight restrictions, it’s finally time to start adding some extra sartorial punch back in to our daily ensembles – even if our commute is still just a trip to the corner store and back.

Accessories have also long been the cornerstone of holiday gifting, particularly for Mother’s Day. So if you’re looking to spoil the mother(s) in your life with a special present to commemorate our collective re-entry into the world, look no further than GRAZIA‘s luxury accessories gift edit below.


“Sunglasses are an essential all year round, now matter where in the world you’re based.  After all, who wants to squint their way to fine lines and wrinkles? Not me, and certainly not my mum either. This contemporary shape is the perfect size to shield your peepers from the sun (none of those Bella Hadid-esque tiny shades here) and the colour is flattering across a wide range of complexions. Add to cart!” – Kate Lancaster, Contributing Beauty Editor


Loewe Anagram medium debossed leather tote, $3850 SHOP NOW

“I am often told by my own Mum that she expects no gifts for Mother’s Day. While the expression is well-intended a scavenge for the perfect gift does not become any easier. For the woman who has everything or instead expects nothing, a classic black tote will never let you down (in gifting or otherwise). The Loewe debossed leather carry-all is my luxury iteration of choice.” – Rebekah Clark, Features Writer

Sarah and Sebastian Diamond Rhombus Ring, $295 SHOP NOW
“My mum is big on sentimental jewellery – she wears a necklace with mine and my sister’s initials, plus a gold ring that features all three of our birthstones. Adding to this collection is always a good gifting option come Mother’s Day, so this year I’ve got my eye on Sarah & Sebastian’s Fine Rhombus Diamond Ring. It’s fine enough to work with her existing finger stacks, but the four tiny diamonds add just the right amount of sparkle. Truth be told, my sister and I will probably grab one for ourselves, as well.” – Emily Algar, Contributing Editor

Prada Cleo Small Leather Shoulder Bag, $3100 SHOP NOW

“I’m picky when it comes to bags, but when I do fall for one, I fall hard – and this new hobo style from Prada is at the top of my list, both for me and my mum. The clean lines and classic shape make it the perfect intergenerational piece that truly suits everyone. This small size is also perfect for both of us, with enough room for all the bits and bobs my mum tends to carry around, while also feeling sleek and manoeuvrable enough for someone who travels light like I do. Perhaps a two-for-one deal, please Prada?” – Kate Lancaster, Contributing Beauty Editor

Versace shell and starfish print silk scarf, $780 SHOP NOW

“Versace’s underwater-inspired SS21 collection has been making – ahem – a lot of waves in fashion lately, and it’s easily evident why. After a long period spent in isolation with little excuse to don fabulous prints, we’re all clamouring for a little bit of sartorial escapism. And what could accomplish such a feat better than an aquatic accessory that inspires dreams of warmer climes? My mum also loves colour, so this array of blue, gold, pink and purple shades should satisfy her inner chromatophiliac.” – Kate Lancaster, Contributing Beauty Editor

Saint Laurent Le Maillon leather shoulder bag, $3390 SHOP NOW

“My hunt for my next investment bag has had me bouncing between Bottega and Bulgari for a few months now. But then along came this buzzy little Saint Laurent. The Le Maillon leather shoulder bag (in tan or black) made its debut in the spring of 21 and is modelled after vintage leather satchels meaning it won’t date as quickly as the padded cassette. And what mother doesn’t need another classic in her wardrobe?” – Jessica Bailey, Editorial Director

Tiffany T Diamond Wire Bracelet in 18k White Gold, $6800 SHOP NOW

“I’ve always been a Tiffany & Co. HardWear girl (and if I can’t sell the collection to you, perhaps BLACKPINK’s Rosé can), but there’s something about the clean lines of this Tiffany T Diamond Wire bracelet – something in me that knows how good it will look daintily stacked with my diamond tennis bracelet. But this isn’t about me, this is about a present for Mum – and I’m hoping she will like it so I can steal. To be continued…” – Jessica Bailey, Editorial Director

Chanel Suede Calfskin Loafers, $1480 SHOP NOW
“Fashion has made it well and truly clear: practical footwear is going precisely nowhere in the near future. It seems we’ve all become accustomed to flats during the pandemic, which all but eliminated the need for fancy heels. But that isn’t to say we’re content to stay confined to our slippers – rather, we’re choosing comfortable yet stylish investment pieces, such as these Chanel flats that my mum has been eyeing off. I plan on surprising her with a pair this Mother’s Day (and perhaps nabbing the black leather for myself).” – Kate Lancaster, Contributing Beauty Editor
Cartier Ballon Bleu de Cartier Automatic 36.6mm 18-karat gold and stainless steel watch, $13,100 SHOP NOW
“If money were no object, this is what I’d be gifting all the mothers in my life. A classic timepiece never dates, especially when it’s Cartier. I love the simplistic shape that somewhat resembles the mens styles, and plays on that borrowed-from-the-boys aesthetic I tend to appreciate. While some may prefer the all the dazzling options that Cartier offer, this one feels like a truly timeless (sorry) investment piece that would work for anyone lucky enough to receive it.” – Kate Lancaster, Contributing Beauty Editor
Valentino sunglasses, $501 SHOP NOW
“Sometimes, my gifting MO is to buy something that I’ll get use out of as well. Such is the case with these chic Valentino Sunglasses. The classic rectangular shape and tortoiseshell frame feels timeless, but the showy golden V on each arm keeps them modern and cool. Perfect for the next time I’m heading home for the weekend and ‘accidentally’ forgot my own pair.” – Emily Algar, Contributing Editor
