Whether it's your mum, grandmother, sister, auntie, step-mother, partner or friend; there is no denying that mother's are special and when Mother's Day comes around it's lovely to celebrate them. Just like Valentine's is no longer just for romantic couples; Mother's Day doesn't just have to be for your mum. It's a great chance to show any strong woman or motherly figure in your life that you appreciate them.
Sure, flowers and chocolates are lovely (and always welcome in my house!) but it's really exciting to find something a little more unique and special as a gift to mark such a wonderful occasion. With that in mind, I have gathered together some perfectly different Mother's Day Gift Ideas from our huge range of vintage and retro fashion and collectables here at My Vintage. No matter who you have in mind for a gift, I have chosen a range of items that will delight all manner of age groups, budgets and style types. So don't worry about spending hours and hours online to end up with a personalised tea towel, just sit back and relax; you're sure to find something here...
I'm starting with this insanely beautiful demi-parure set from Kramer; New York jewellery makers for the likes of Christian Dior. Stunning brushed bright gilt brooch with pastel enameled flowers in pink, green, blue and yellow. Complimented by identical mini version clip on earrings. Brooch measures approx 2” wide and each earring approx 0.75” wide. This amazing 1950s vintage jewellery set is in excellent vintage condition and would make the perfect gift.
Super cute set of 6 coasters in a pretty pink presentation box. 2 of each of the 3 designs - Happy Days, Life is a Journey and Hello Gorgeous. Mrs Smith is the quintessential 50s lady and the pink aesthetic is just adorable. The perfect gift for a retro lover or to add to any pastel or shabby chic interior. Brand new and unused. This is such a great gift as it's not too expensive but looks luxurious with the pretty design and presentation box. For more information or to buy, just tap the pic above.
This isn't just another Boots giftset, this is an original vintage Boots giftset comprising a beautiful embroidered purse and compact. Such a rare find to have an unused gift set in it’s original box! Beautiful cream purse/cosmetics bag with delicate pink and gold floral embroidery. The cream powder compact matches and has the original Boots insert with full instructions. All still in the original packaging which has of course taken some wear and tear over the years but is still intact. This is such a great gift for a vintage lover. Purse measures 7.5“ x 4“ and box measures approx 10“ x 7“ . Tap the pic for more info.
A vintage handbag always makes a wonderful gift, and this is one of my current favourites. It's a super cool boho boxy handbag from the late 60s/early 70s. White faux leather with detailed carpet/tapestry design to front, back and bottom. Foldover flap with large brass disc and twist lock fastening. Large inner compartment. Measures approx 11.5" x 8" x 5.5". In very good vintage condition.

Speaking of vintage scarves, this one would make such a lovely Mother's Day gift...

Label states ‘hand painted acetate twill rolled edge’ Measures approx 26” x 26” and in very good vintage condition. Just tap on the pic more more information or to order.
A vintage brooch is such a delightful present and this is one of the most intricate and beautiful ones I have ever seen! It is an unusual fanned shape and set with very pretty pastel pink and blue sparkling gems/crystals. Furnished in a bright gold tone metal and finished off with tiny hanging pearl beads from the bottom. Measures just under 3” long and in very good vintage condition with no missing stones or damage.
