Mother's Day Gift Guide 2023

With Mother’s Day just around the corner on Sunday 14 May, The Modern has something for every mum this year to spoil her in style. We’ve put together our top gift edit to help make your job easy.



If mum’s idea of a perfect day involves curling-up with a good book, help her get cosy with a Brita Sweden Pop Throw in Yellow. This artfully designed piece is made of soft lambs wool and will keep mum warm while looking stylish. For extra brownie points, you could also spoil her with a stunning homewares and design book, such as Style – The Art Of Creating A Beautiful Home.

Or, say ‘I love you’ with The Modern’s Reading Chair with Ottoman. Hugely popular for both living and bedroom areas, it can also be styled with our much loved and oh-so versatile Tray Coffee Table in Oak or one of the new Marimekko Auringonkukka (sunflower) patterned cushion covers, to let her know just how much she brightens your day.


For mums who love to create from the heart of the home, the Marimekko Pieni Kukkatori Apron is a stylish cook’s companion. Boasting a colourful pattern, the design takes inspiration from the abundance of flowers at a marketplace in the summer. It pairs beautifully with a set of Marimekko Unikko Tea Towels. Made from an absorbent and durable cotton/linen blend, these towels are as functional as they are beautiful for drying dishes and hands. One towel features smaller-scale flowers, and the other showcases two statement-sized blossoms. Available in a range of colours, you’ll be sure to find one that mum will love.


Is your mum the ultimate hostess with the mostest? Help her entertain in style with a selection of The Modern’s homewares and furniture must-haves, such as the Bloomingville Begonia Stoneware Jug. With its signature graphic pattern, this hand-painted jug is sure to spice up any dinner table. You can also use the jug as a vase, which is perfect coupled with a bunch of fresh blooms on Mother’s Day.

To really spoil mum, the Arna Curve Extendable Dining Table is a true gift of style and sophistication. Crafted from oak with a unique curve design, its built-in extensions offer the perfect solution for adjusting table sizes to accommodate any occasion, such as Mother’s Day lunch. An elegant and tasteful centerpiece for all occasions, it would also look great styled with a set of Marimekko Hyräily (Humming) Plates. This set includes three plates, which are made of dishwasher, oven, microwave, and freezer safe white stoneware.


If mum is an interiors afficionado, help add a drop of elegance to her favourite arm-chair or sofa with the Forest Glass Round Coffee Table, which also makes a useful occasional table in an entranceway, bedroom or study. The legs are solid-oak finished with a light lacquer and the top is constructed from durable and safe table glass. Additionally, you can show mum just how much she lights up your life with the Addison Floor Lamp. Both practical and minimalist, it features clean lines and is available in white, black and jade colourways to suit a variety of interiors, regardless of mum’s style.

Should mum be thinking about re-styling or updating a room, The Modern also offers Styling Services to help get the best from a living space. With three styling packages available (The Modern Edit, Style and Home) our team of styling experts will offer bespoke advice to help carefully curate an atmosphere to compliment mum’s unique lifestyle.
