Because our mothers raised us to be all that we are, we always try to find the perfect gifts to give them. This year, we asked mothers close to us here at SENLIS for some insight into what they're hoping for during this unconventional Mother's Day. Explore their non-material wishes, the little things on their wishlist, and their SENLIS favorites. Wishing you and yours a day full of color and joy this Mother's Day! xx
Ideas for the Beauty Lover:
This One King's Lane Mirror Tray is a great way to display her favorite products. Putting her beauty products on a cute tray is both a cute and clever way to gift give while also giving her a great piece she can use on her vanity or in her bathroom.
The Estee Lauder Ultimate Facial Massager is such a treat. If she loves skin care, she will definitely adore this product. For the best use, she can use this in the morning and at night paired with her favorite serum.
The new Gucci Rouge à Lèvres Voile Sheer Lipstick is a gorgeous little gift. With 18 different shades and floral packaging, she is bound to love this little gift.
A Diptyque candle is the perfect topper to the tray. This new scent is called "Paris En Fleur" which is obviously our new favorite.
Ideas for the Homebody...
Bring her favorite coffee shop to her kitchen. For the one who wants to enjoy an artisan latte every day, the Breville Bambino Espresso Maker is a great latte machine that is conservative on space but still a luxury product.
The Laundress New Mom Kit is the perfect combination of useful and luxurious.
Urban Stems offers beautiful flower delivery bundles. They offer many arrangements in combinations with items like Nest candles and Sugarfina candy. Plus, Urban Stems offers overnight shipping and comes packaged beautifully.
Vogue 500 piece Jigsaw Puzzle to do together during quarantine. This one is from the 1933 cover of Carl Ericson's painting described as "the afternoon of a lady" which seems very fitting for a Mother's Day gift.
Personal Picks: Some of our favorite moms share what they're hoping for this Mother's Day...

Stephanie's SENLIS pick is the Sarah Sleeveless Top.

"This mother's day what I am lusting after most is a relaxing day with my boys; a neighborhood walk, movie and snuggles (no lesson plans please, and a break from laundry would be nice)!"
Sarah's SENLIS pick is the Antoinette Dress in the bird print. She's obsessed with the print and loves the easy silhouette!

Our Chief Operating Officer, Meenakshi's Favorite Picks:
"For Mother's Day, I'm wishing that I can go for a walk with Anya - we are living in unprecedented times and I am so grateful that we are healthy and staying together as a family. But a walk to get some spring air would be an amazing way to spend our day followed by some delicious home made food and flowers - I love getting flowers!"
Meenakshi's SENLIS pick is the Hélène Midi Dress in blue leaves.
Aurelia Demark, Fine Jewelry Designer's Favorites:
"I’m dreaming of going to brunch with my family at one of my favorite NYC spots, Union Square Cafe, and then heading to Rescue spa for some pampering."
Aurelia's SENLIS pick is the Hélène Midi Dress.
Eleanor's Picks, Brand Strategist and Friend of SENLIS:
"My Mother’s Day wish is for some of the new ways that we’ve been doing “life” to stick and become habits...the slowing down, the attention to being present and the regular family dinners...the time that the pandemic has given me to connect with my family has been invaluable."
In terms of material items, Eleanor says, "I would love to add Cartier’s gold Juste Un Clou ring to my rotation. A classic, but I also love the tough nail design, especially now. A nice reminder of this moment in time and something that I’ll have forever."
Ellie's SENLIS pick is the Valentine Maxi Dress in our Rolling Hills print.
Arlene's Picks, Healthcare Professional and Friend to SENLIS:
"For Mother's Day this year, I'm hoping for a long zoom call with my extended family. I love reminiscing on old photos and being in quarantine seems like the perfect time to do it!"
"I always love fresh flowers. Especially during this time, I'd love to get fresh plants and new vases to sprinkle throughout the house to bring some more joy into my home. I always love floral printed ones."
Arlene's SENLIS pick is the Hélène Midi Dress.
