Top 10 Mother’s Day Gifts

Top 10 Mother’s Day Gifts

Sleepwear for Mother’s Day is always a good idea. Here are the 10 luxury gifts for mom we recommend giving this year.

Every day should be Mother's Day, because moms truly are amazing. That said, the official date in Canada, the US, and many countries across Europe and the Asia Pacific region is May 9, 2021. Have you thought of how you’re going to show your appreciation this year?

Of course, the ultimate luxe gift for mom is a day off – swooping in to offer a sleep-in, a gourmet breakfast in bed, and perhaps a visit to the spa in the afternoon. We know that might not be possible everywhere in the world just yet (thanks, Covid), so from designer sleepwear to luxury housewares, we’ve put together our top 10 high-end mother's day gifts that you can send, if you can’t spend time together in person.

1) The Ankle Length Sleep Shirt

This is one of our most versatile nightshirts, thanks to its curved hem and three-quarter placket, which make it feel just a little more daytime. Go for classic sky blue, which comes in a lovely blend of linen and cotton, or opt for this season’s Sapporo Cotton Linen Stripe, which features a modern, blue and white stripe. This is a luxury gift for new moms (especially anyone who's breastfeeding), as well as for older ladies who love its shorter band collar. 

2) The Pocket Kaftan

The Pocket Kaftan is a roomy piece that works equally well as loungewear as it does over a bathing suit. It’s a version of our popular Oversized Kaftan, but shorter, and, true to its name, with pockets. It’s also the piece from the Spring 2021 collection our founder, Alexandra, coveted most. She got it in for herself in Black Linen and Sapporo Cotton Linen Stripe, to wear poolside and (hopefully) to outdoor parties, too.

3) The Flared Sleep Shirt

The Flared Sleep Shirt is a comfortable flared shirt dress with a high low hem, side pockets and a three-quarter length sleeve. Most of our pieces can be worn as ready-to-wear, but if you were ever in doubt, or want an easy piece that definitely works, this women’s cotton dress is it.

4) A piece by n e a d ceramics

Created in Manhattan by photographer Nate Bozeman and artist Dean Sidaway, n e a d ceramics is known for its artisan vessels in bright, peppy colours. Each piece is handcrafted, hand-painted and truly one-of-a-kind, with slight, unique variations to prove it. Whether you use yours as a cup, for storing makeup brushes, or to keep your pencils together on your desk, they bring definite feel-good factor to your space.

5) The Sleeveless Nightie

If you’ve been on the hunt for a cotton nightie that’s not overtly sexy, sheer, or makes you feel silly, you can stop looking now. The Sleeveless Nightie is the epitome of contemporary sleepwear: it’s a classic style that’s not too revealing, not fuddy-duddy, and looks great on everyone. It’s also ideal for summer (or anyone who tends to overheat when they’re sleeping).

6) The Pyjama Set

If your mom prefers sleeping in trousers, consider one of our stylish pyjama sets. Our bestselling Lounge Pant are ideal sleep bottoms, and they pair perfectly with our Short Sleeve Cropped Sleep Shirt, Slip-on Top and Cuffed Sleeve Shirt. Best of all, each of these are chic, comfortable, and can double as a shirt with your favourite pair of jeans or skirt.

7) Garneau Sheepskin Slippers

Chances are your mom has done her share of running around—and then some. Give her weary feet a rest with a pair of slippers made in Quebec by Garneau. They’re made from sheepskin, with removable insoles for easy machine washing, so they’ll keep her toes nice and toasty on those early spring mornings, too.

8) The House Skirt

We released our first-ever skirt late last year, and it’s been popular ever since. So popular, in fact, that we got almost-immediate feedback from customers that they wanted it in larger sizes, too. It’s now available in up to a size XXL in white linen, black linen, and our classic Blue Oxford Stripe.

9) Raspberry Pink Linen

We’re big fans of pink sleepwear here at The Sleep Shirt—and judging from our best selling pieces, we know you are, too. This Raspberry Linen is part of our Pre Fall 2021 collection, and it’s super soft, with a slightly crisp, textured feel. It’s an expensive gift for mom, but a pretty divine one.

10) The Long or Short Sleep Shirt

Last but not least, you can’t go wrong with a classic. Our nightshirts have been around since the very beginning—nine years ago this year—and they remain best sellers for a reason. Not sure which fabric or colour to go for? The Blue Oxford Stripe cotton is our most popular fabric because of its reliability, durability, and comfort; it’s 100% cotton (the best material for pyjamas) and feels even better once you’ve broken it in and washed it a couple of times.
