Mother’s Day Gift Guide: The Best Hotel Gifts for Moms

Mother's Day Gift Guide: The Best Hotel Gifts for Moms

Good hotels are in the business of cherishing their guests. Hotels – at the highest end – are all about curation, which makes the products they sell in their shops particularly desirable, whether fashion, furnishings or art. Here are some presents that every mother will love.

Bonzini Mama Shelter foosball table

Having linked up with the long-standing French company Bonzini to provide table football sets (€4,990) for its first hotel (and then every other hotel in its collection) Mama Shelter can now ship them to your own home. A great gift for a soccer-loving mom, they come in pale pink and mint green, with three different sizes to choose from and are hand made in Lorraine using solid beech and beach plyboard. The options for customisation include players and kit colours.

Adare Manor Pyjamas

Adare Manor, a dreamy five star hotel in Limerick, Ireland has produced some very dreamy pyjamas (€180) for moms in conjunction with Cliona O’Brien’s company Moon & Mellow. Made of organic cotton, they feature mythical Irish creatures that may (or may not) roam around the hotel and its gardens. Siren, in navy blue with bronze piping is particularly lovely.

Bill Bensley paintings

Most hotel artwork is a bit dull. Not those by Bill Bensley. One of the most celebrated contemporary hotel designers, he has been responsible for hotels as diverse as the Four Seasons Koh Samui and The Siam. At Bensley’s own Shinta Mani hotels in Cambodia, all the profits go back into the community, especially through education and wildlife conservation. Bensley’s own paintings ($195) are part of this philanthropic endeavour and can be shipped world-wide.
